LittleBigPlanet: Stunted by a poor financial model

8d ago ... LittleBigPlanet has been somewhat of a successful series for Sony and they have just unveiled their newest title in the series, LittleBigPlanet 3, for the PS3 and PS4. From October 2008 to January 2013 8 million user generated levels were created and published [1].

3 Platform Future: Sony + Conlusion

9d ago ... Sony has made all the right moves with the PlayStation 4 thus far, and the PlayStation brand is the strongest of the big 3 when considering all time console sales. There’s little for me to comment on regarding Sony’s future in the gaming industry. Their $380 million dollar purchase of Gaikai, and upcoming features such as SharePlay on PS4 shows their future in the gaming industry is in the...

Sony didn't need to win Gamescom; They have already won 2014

15d ago ... Today I saw two different strategies when comparing Microsoft to Sony and their approach to gamescom. Microsofts announcements were more aimed at selling more xbox ones, particularly in europe This was done by really bringing the hype for the big guns Fifa - Cod - Halo MCC/5 beta - Quantum Break - Fable - AC:U - Tomb Raider. The Fifa stuff was pretty pointless because we know of legends...

PlayStation Plus: Where should it go next?

The EA Access and Sony debacle

27d ago ... Sony recently denied a new service by EA for the PS4 called EA Access. Microsoft announced that they would be partnering up with EA to bring this service to those who may want it on their Xbox One.

One plus 3 equals 4

55d ago ... The XboX One isn't exactly burning up the charts like the 360 did last gen and the PS4 is looking very tough to beat in terms of sales.

The one advantage that the XboX can have over the PS4 is...

Yet another Open Letter, this time to AAA third parties, regarding the Wii U.

69d ago ... This is something that's been rolling around in my head for a bit, just like my previous blog post, and since there's no suitable articles to put my thoughts on the subject to, I'm going to do so here.
