PSN Under Fire! Were Xbox One Fans To Blame?!

Earlier last week, the PlayStation 4 and the PlayStation Network came under attack by a malevolent group of hackers bent on destroying everything Sony has built. They crippled the PSN servers with a DDOS attack, then went so far as calling in a bomb threat against Sony Online Entertainment president John Smedley's plane as he was travelling.

These hackers have an axe to grind with Sony, attacking them for seemingly no reason except out of spite. Could Xbox One loyalists be behind this attack?

July NPD Puts Sony On Top

July's NPD numbers are in, and Sony once again takes top honors in hardware while also being the publisher behind the month's best selling game!

This is the seventh month in a row the PlayStation 4 has been the top selling console in the United States.

As for the games, The Last of Us was the best selling game in July!

See the complete list of games below:

August's PlayStation Plus Offerings

With August just starting, we've got a look at the free content you'll be getting on not only the PS4, but the PS3 and the Vita as well. Lots of cross-buy goodness is on the horizon!

For PS4 owners, you'll be getting a puzzle game duo: Road Not Taken and FEZ. Since FEZ is cross-buy, you'll also be getting a copy on your Vita and PS3.

For PS3 owners, you'll receive Crysis 3 and Proteus. As a cross-buy title, Vita owners will also snag Proteus.

Vita owners will receive Dragon's Crown (you guessed it -- also available for PS3) and Metrico.

Sony says No to EA Access

Announced a few days ago for the Xbox One, EA Access is a $29.99 per year subscription program (or $4.99 a month) entitling you to unlimited access to "Vault" games, including Battlefield 4, Peggle 2, Madden 25 and FIFA 14. In addition, subscribers will get discounts on digital version of EA games and will be able to play those games up to five days early.

PlayStation 4 finally receives 3D Blu-ray support

It's been one of your most requested features on our Facebook page for months, and now it's finally happening: Sony is adding in 3D Blu-ray support with its next firmware update. No other information was given other than it's coming and when it will be here.

Update 1.75 will arrive sometime during the week of July 27th, bringing with it a few minor improvements and bug fixes along with 3D Blu-ray support.

What is the first movie you'll watch with this support? What are you looking for Sony to add next?

Let us know in the comments and on Facebook!

PS4 Targets Wii Owners

Now that the PS4 has shifted almost 10 million units to the gamer crowd, Sony is turning their attention to a new audience: the Wii crowd. Specifically, gamers who only owned a Wii last generation and are now looking to move up to a PlayStation 4.

Sony Computer Entertainment head Andrew House explains this as the reason why we're seeing so many "remasters" and "ports" of games that are barely a year old: "Our big opportunity is to welcome back an audience much earlier in the lifecycle that possibly bought into the Wii previously," House told Eurogamer at the Develop conference.

"Early Access" Games May Appear on PS4

Over on the PC, "Early Access" has taken the gaming community by storm. To sum it up, an "Early Access" title lets players buy an alpha or beta version of a game and play it while the developer works on it, offering feedback during every step of the process. The most well-known of these games was Minecraft.

However, these games may not stay on the PC if Sony has anything to say about it. In an interview with Gamasutra, Sony’s Adam Boyes discusses the possibility of these titles hitting the PS4:

Shuhei Yoshida Responds to Your Indie Complaints

One look at the PS4 Experts Facebook page shows that a very vocal minority hates PS4 indie games on PlayStation Plus. This minority spews forth such unintelligible, irrational dialogue like "these aren't real games" and "Sony sucks for giving me these games for free!"

Sony's Shuhei Yoshida has stated that he has "heard the complaints" and wonders aloud about why some gamers who own a PS4 seem to be so closed-minded towards any game that doesn't have a $20 million dollar budget.

Sony Leads in Sales and Advertising

While Sony hasn't given an official announcement, recent reports have stated that the company has now hit 9 million sales for the PS4, with the number rapidly on its way to 10 million by the end of July. The Xbox One? Sitting at just over 5 million shipped to retailers. Sorry XBox fans.

While some may say the PS4's gamer-first stance and giant lineup of games has helped pushing into first place, it may also be due to one other factor: advertising.

Missing PS4 Features Still Coming, According to Sony

When the PlayStation 4 was first unveiled, Sony touted some revolutionary new features such as the "friend takeover," where a friend could take over your game to help you defeat a difficult section. Also mentioned was sleep mode, a mode that lets you turn off your PS4 and, upon booting it back up, it would resume right where you left off.

It's been seven months, and neither feature has yet to be added to the PlayStation 4. Are these features never coming?

July PlayStation Plus Games Leaked (now confirmed)

Update: Both Strider and Towerfall Ascension have been confirmed as being July's PlayStation 4 Instant Game Collection games in all regions! The games will be available in the United States on July 3rd, 2014. In other regions, the game will be available shortly after.

Back in April 2014, PlayStation Asia leaked the monthly PlayStation Plus PS4 offering and it looks like they may have done it again for July 2014.
