They still make great games. This is Dark Souls-esque (3rd party combat, but much more forgiving and progressive, initially) with a focus on gear/grinding

Nintendo only for the last few titles? And popular only in the Western Hemisphere. Seemed they had more popular AAA titles in the 80's/90's. Mostly sequels lately after a search. Hopefully they release Monster Hunter for PS4 so I can check it out.

Yeah, you're right. I was disappointed that the current gen isn't on a console, but the biggest appeal of it is playing with friends, especially in the past when that was your only option for multiplayer. But now they've got online, and it's fun collaborating with others to bring down a monster.

It's really satisfying to learn the game... especially later on in the game, the monsters can really wreck your shit. Getting hit 2-3 times in a row (without a potion, which has a long animation) can mean a death sentence. You may get destroyed constantly before you finally learn the patterns which can be frustrating. Then occasionally you beat it while only getting hit a handful of times throughout the hunt, or not at all... extremely gratifying.

I've played it on the PS Vita (downloaded), Wii U, 3DS, and I gotta say the Wii U was the most enjoyable, seeing it on the big screen. Of all the games that will ever come out on the Nintendo Switch, Monster Hunter is my most anticipated even if it hasn't been even hinted at yet.

Finally getting an external 4TB for Xmas to backup huge games that still suck up hard drive space even though they're on a disc. Hopefully that'll hold me over till next gen.

This month is looking like an ideal time for PlayStation 4 owners in the market for a PlayStation VR headset to finally pick one up. Sony is bringing back some steep discounts on the standalone headset and various bundles, bringing their respective prices as low as they've ever gone.

These new promotions began in the United States on February 18 and see the cheapest option sell for $200, rather than the usual $300. The PlayStation Blog suggests this may just be the standalone headset (which doesn't come with the required PS4 camera). However, the official PlayStation websiteshows that it may also include the Gran Turismo Sport bundle, which gets you the game and camera, but that will require you actually finding a store that has it in stock.

Next cheapest is Doom VFR's bundle, which will go for $300 (down from $400). This packs in a physical copy of Doom VFR in addition to the headset, camera, and the 2.0 demo disc. Alternatively, Skyrim's bundle drops to $350 (from $450) and gets you Skyrim VR, the headset, camera, 2.0 demo disc, and two PlayStation Move controllers. As with a number of other games, Skyrim VR can be played either with the Move controllers or a standard DualShock 4.

These offers will be available until March 3 at participating retailers; according to Sony, these include Best Buy, Walmart, Target, and GameStop. If you're unsure about buying one, check out our comparison of the different VR headsets. You could also wait and hope Sony does another promotion where it sends PSVR demo units to people's homes.

One thing to be aware of is that Sony introduced a small revamp of PSVRlast year, allowing HDR passthrough with the breakout box and making other refinements. For more help in deciding which unit is right for you, check out our Doom VFR review and thoughts on Skyrim VR.

That $60 yearly membership to PS Plus is definitely paying off for US-based PSVR owners this time around, as this next batch of discounts is putting over 100 PSVR items on sale including games and DLC. The sale lasts until February 27th

Notable titles coming in hot with at least 70% off are DiRT Rally Plus, Eagle Flight, Werewolves Within, I Expect You to Die, Windlands, Thumper, and Until Dawn: Rush of Blood.

You’ll also find plenty of sub-$10 games worth considering including Darknet, Pinball FX2 VR, Statik, The Brookhaven Experiment, and Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes.

Don’t own a PSVR headset yet? Hardware bundles with everything you need are $100 off until March 3rd.

Next PlayStation Is Three Years Off, Sony Says

Company will spend the time preparing to ‘jump higher in the future,’ says head of videogame unit

May 23, 2018 5:30 a.m. ET

TOKYO—Don’t hold your breath for the fifth-generation PlayStation.

Sony Corp. wants to spend three more years readying its next videogame move, the head of the PlayStation business said Wednesday. That would mark a slight slowdown in the six-to-seven-year update cycle for the console since the first one in 1994. The PlayStation 4 went on sale in 2013 and has sold more than 79 million units.

“We will use the next three years to prepare the next step, to crouch down so that we can jump higher in the future,” said Tsuyoshi “John” Kodera, who took over last October.

Sony has been shifting its PlayStation focus from hardware to online subscription services, including a $60 annual package that includes games and multiplayer features. That service, PlayStation Plus, had 34 million users as of March, fitting the new CEO’s goal of adding revenue sources that are more stable than volatile hardware and software sales.

Speaking to a small group of reporters, Mr. Kodera said the network-services side of PlayStation is changing the way Sony thinks about product introductions.

“We need to depart from the traditional way of looking at the console life cycle,” he said. “We’re no longer in a time when you can think just about the console or just about the network like they’re two different things.”

Mr. Kodera said the company is looking at ways to better incorporate mobility into the PlayStation, traditionally a living-room console. Nintendo Co.’s popular Switch machine can be used both in the home and as a portable device.

Sony sells the hand-held PlayStation Vita, but Mr. Kodera said that when it comes to mobility, the company doesn’t want to limit itself to a single dedicated device. “We need a broader perspective than that because so many things are now connected via the internet,” he said.

One challenge for Sony is competing against companies with broader subscription offerings in entertainment, such as Amazon.com Inc. and Netflix Inc.

Mr. Yoshida, the CEO, said in a separate group interview that PlayStation’s subscription services provide valuable consumer-spending data. He said PlayStation Vue, an internet television service in the U.S. that has struggled to match Amazon and Netflix, is bringing in useful user data and Sony had no plans to shut it down.

Had to see that one coming. Just makes so much sense to make a portable system with a quick dock for home usage.

Wife wants to watch her Kardashians or whatever, fine I'll just undock the Switch/PS5/Xbox 2
