Taiwan’s Newspaper Claims Sony is Working on a “Thinner” PS4

An article in Taiwan’s DigiTimes newspaper, which focuses on electronics and the region’s IT industry, has given birth to speculations of Sony working on yet another revision of the PlayStation 4. An article penned by Aaron Lee and Joseph Tsai this past Friday focuses on Nintendo Switch sales and makes the following statement along the way: Microsoft is also planning to release a new Xbox game console codenamed Project Scorpio and the product is expected to be announced at the E3 2017 event, targeting the year-end holiday season. Sony is expected to release a thinner version of its PlayStation 4. We’re not sure if DigiTimes is speculating something itself or if this is based on a report it received but interesting statement nonetheless. Considering the PS3 had several revisions itself, we won’t be too surprised if this is true but whether the report applies to PS4 Slim or Pro can only be guessed at the moment. We’ll update our readers when we have more info. [Source: DigiTimes via PSU] READ FULL STORY AT PLAYSTATIONLIFESTYLE!

40 Minutes of Mass Effect Andromeda PS4 Pro Gameplay Shown Off

[embedded content] In the latest episode of PlayStation Underground, Sony offers up 40+ minutes of 4K Mass Effect Andromeda gameplay on PlayStation 4 Pro. The video includes footage from the first few hours of the game, but Social Media Director Sid Shuman says they strategically cut around some of the more spoiler-filled moments in the early parts of the story. Previously, BioWare said Mass Effect Andromeda runs at 1800p with checkerboard rendering on PS4 Pro, while the base PS4 version runs at 1080p/30 frames-per-second. If you’re planning on spending some time with Andromeda’s multiplayer, BioWare is launching an iOS/Android companion app worldwide on March 20 (it’s already out in Canada, Ireland, Romania, and Singapore). Titled Apex HQ, the app will allow you to change your loadout ahead of a match, command strike teams on-the-go, and stay up to date with all the latest multiplayer news, missions, and progression. To properly use the app, you’ll need to make sure that you log in with the same EA Account linked to the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, or PC that you’re using to play Andromeda. You can find download links and more information on Apex HQ over here. Mass Effect Andromeda releases on March 21 in North America and March 23 in Europe. Weighing in…
