Until 2012 You Could Watch Netflix On A PS2 In Brazil

Until 2012 You Could Watch Netflix On A PS2 In Brazil

Netflix on consoles was a much different experience a decade ago. Today users just download an app, login and start watching some TV or movies. But back in 2009, depending on your console, you might have to order a disc from Netflix and link your account to their service to watch whatever was on Netflix in 2009. Amazingly, even some PS2 owners could get these discs.

Cloud Saves On PS4 Have A Weird Limit

Cloud Saves On PS4 Have A Weird Limit

Cloud saves are great. They keep your save data safe, providing backups for everything you’ve ever accomplished in a PS4 game. They also makes it easy to stop playing on one PS4 and pick up right where you left off on another. But PS4 cloud saves have a bizarre 1,000-file cap, and no one’s really sure why it exists.

Twitter user Dizzy_Ziddy ran into this problem just this week while trying to...

Wolfenstein: Youngblood: The Kotaku Review

Wolfenstein: Youngblood: The Kotaku Review

I am generally suspicious of games that people say are “better with friends,” simply because most things are. Manual labor, paying taxes, repeatedly hitting your thumb with a hammer—these are all things that are “better with friends.” Humans are social creatures, and company can make both miserable and pleasant things a whole lot better. “Better with friends” is rarely a good selling...

Pioneering Open World PS1 Game Is Now Finally Playable In English

Pioneering Open World PS1 Game Is Now Finally Playable In English

Mizzurna Falls, a Twin Peaks-ish open world game developed for the PS1 and only ever released in Japan, is now 20 years later available to play in English for the first time.

While the script itself had been translated by Resident Evie a few years back—you can read more about that in this excellent Vice piece from 2017—it’s taken until now for those changes to actually be put into the game and...

Sony Has Shipped 100 Million PS4s

The PS5 may be on the horizon , but the PS4 is far from dead. Sony reports that they have now shipped 100 million PS4s between the machine’s late 2013 launch and June 30 of this year.

Sony’s most recent figure for the number of PS4s actually sold to customers is 91.6 million, through the end of 2018.

Sony Accidentally Loses List Of PS4 Contest Winners 

Sony Accidentally Loses List Of PS4 Contest Winners 

Late last year in Japan, Sony held a pretty neat contest—people who bought a PS3, a PS4, a Vita, or a Vita TV between December 4 and January 15 could get a calendar with a special code that gave them a chance to snag one of those limited-edition 20th-anniversary PS4s , the ones that have been driving Sony fans wild for the past few months.

Today, the company behind PlayStation announced that...

What To Make Of Assassin's Creed Syndicate, One Month Out

What To Make Of <i>Assassin's Creed Syndicate</i>, One Month Out

Less than a month from release, Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed Syndicate is likely to be judged as much on its own merits as on how well its publisher listened to fan discontent about the flagship series and what it’s been willing to change. Companion apps are out. Platform-exclusive DLC is back. The overall plan for the game and its various add-on components is nearly as complex as it has ever...

Bear Parker, the same guy who managed to remake Metal Gear Solid inside another game , has decided to take everything we’ve seen of Hideo Kojima’s Death Stranding and turn it into a PlayStation 1 game, complete with gameplay and giant ladders.

It works real well! Death Stranding’s grim aesthetic and murky palette...

That Time Donald Trump Fired Fake PlayStation Employees In An Xbox Skit

That Time Donald Trump Fired Fake PlayStation Employees In An Xbox Skit

Ah, 2004. It was a simpler time—a time of MySpace and Xanga, a time of American Idol and 7th Heaven. In games, 2004 was the year of World of Warcraft and Half-Life 2. George Bush defeated John Kerry. It was also the year Donald Trump appeared in an Xbox E3 ad spoofing The Apprentice and fired phony PlayStation representatives. Yes, good times.

In a skit only half as surreal as last night’s...

Memory Card Icons Were Rad

Memory Card Icons Were Rad

Memory cards are already a strange and soon to be forgotten artifact from gaming’s past. How many kids growing up with consoles that include hard drives will remember or care about memory cards in a few years? Probably very few. But I bet even less will remember what strange things could be found on old memory cards. And that’s sad because those little save icons were so wonderful.

Right now, switching from console to PC for Destiny 2 means starting from scratch, as there’s no way to transfer your characters or progress. But this morning,...

Death Stranding Is Going To Make No Sense And That's Just Fine

First we talk about some video games we’re playing, from Dark Souls 3 to Observation, then dive into news of the week (29:00) including Death Stranding’s ridiculous new trailer (and 2019 release date!), Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, and EA Play. We hear from a...
