This is the same trailer we’ve seen for Dragon Quest Heroes on PS4, but it’s so good, you can watch it again.
The PlayStation brand has been very profitable with the PS4’s sales, however, that is not covering the massive losses occurring in other sectors of Sony’s business. According to the gaming site KitGuru, Sony is quadrupling their forecast lost for the financial year ending on March 31st, 2015. Sony’s financial issues have been well documented, but it seems like things are going to get worse.
During Sony’s last financial meeting on March 31st, 2014, Sony reported a loss of over £750 million and stated they projected losing another £285 million for the current financial year. But now, that forecast has risen dramatically. Sony is now forecasting a loss £1.04 billion between now and the 31st of March 2015. More details can be found on KitGuru.
Cort Stratton, a programmer at Naughty Dog, and part of Sony’s ICE team, has implied the PS4 is no longer “top-of-the-line” hardware. However, game quality should not be affected.

**Update** I’ve been informed that Sony says they own 78% of the home console market with their numbers starting in 2014. This is of course to incorporate the launch of the PS4, and to exclude any good sales the Wii had in previous years. I still believe this is PR spin because they only go from 2014, Market Share isn’t dictated from 2014 and on. Its based on the total amount of consoles sold in comparison to the competition. I honestly feel this is a dishonest way of determining market share. Especially midway through the year with the launch of your system against other systems who have already launched. Thanks NanoShock for clarifying things
This is flat-out PR Spin. During a pre-Tokyo Game Show press conference. Sony’s Asia president Atsushi Morita claimed that Sony owns 78% of the market share in Japan for ‘home consoles.’ However, Sony combined the PS4 and PS3 numbers against just the Wii U.
Sony completely ignored the Wii, and declined to give a market share update on the PS Vita, even though the PS Vita is the currently Sony’s best selling system in Japan. Nice PR spin there Sony. You guys don’t own 78% of the Japanese home market. You can’t combine a 7th and 8th generation system, then leave out the competitions’ 7th generation systems. Especially since Wii software is still selling in Japan like Super Smash Bros Brawl and Dragon Quest X.

The PS4 was the top selling console for the July NPD. Sony also lead in software sales as well. Get Sony’s take past the break.
I know the title might sound a bit clickbaity, but it’s essentially Sony’s attitude with the PS Vita at the moment. Vice President of Sony Worldwide Studios Europe, Michael Denny, has stated that the he feels the Vita is the “best handheld dedicated gaming device,” but the firm’s focus is on the PS4 right now. When asked about big titles coming to the PS Vita in the future, Denny says we’ve got crossplay and indie games. On top of that, he didn’t even know Borderlands 2 already released on the system.
It looks like Sony has struck a deal with Red Thread Games to bring Dreamfall Chapters exclusively to the PS4. This means the Xbox One and Wii U will not be getting the game anytime soon, or at all. The title is still coming to the PC, Mac, and Linux. More details here.
Apparently, Sony has confirmed at GamesCom 2014 that the PS4 has sold 10 million units to consumers, not shipped. This is an amazing feat by Sony, and hopefully it will inspire Nintendo and Microsoft to pull out all the stops to catch up. Via: GamerConnect
