Each week Ross Rubin contributes Switched On, a column about consumer technology. Throughout the history of home game consoles, it's been notoriously difficult for a leader in one generation to maintain its leadership in the next generation. Sony, for example, went from dominance of the sixth-gen...

Just think -- nearly a decade after the last generation of consoles was unveiled by Microsoft and Sony, we've gotten our first close-up look at the next generation. Unlike 2012's lackluster showing, the convention floor felt inv...

Just because SOE didn't have many new games to showcase at E3 this year doesn't mean that the studio didn't have a lot to talk about.

I don't have any strong love of dragons. I don't really hate them, usually, aside from the fact that I've killed far too many to get excited about it, but I've never looked at one and thought, "I wanna collect that like I would a Pokemon!" However, I like Dragon's Prophet. I was actually playing th...

We know the pricing, a loose holiday release schedule, and now, that the PlayStation 4 won't be locked-down according to geography. That's according to Sony Computer Entertainment's Brad Douglas, who mentioned on Twitter that the company's new console has "no region locking", hopefully freeing up ...

Well, it pays to stick around a launch venue as the cleanup crews begin to roll out. We just caught a glimpse of Sony's brand new PlayStation 4 following the company's press event tonight, and it's really quite stunning. We were only able to view the console from a right angle, but we did manage t...

Sony is delivering mixed blessings here at E3: while it's more than willing to avoid DRM on the PlayStation 4, it just echoed Microsoft's approach to multiplayer services.
