The Scuf Vantage will retail for between $169.95 and $199.95, which is a steep commitment, but it has several bells and whistles that could take your competitive game to the next level.
Scuf made a name for itself designing custom controls with reprogrammable backpedals. Many professional gamers have navigated to Scuf looking to eke out every advantage on the digital battleground. Now, Scuf is teaming up with Sony to develop an officially licensed PlayStation 4 controller that has more customization features than ever.
The Scuf Vantage comes in two flavors: A wired version that retails for $169.95, and a version that can flip between wired and wireless modes that retails for $199.95. Otherwise, the two versions of the Vantage are nearly identical, and include a host of nifty features, such as:
Two removable/reprogrammable side buttons, called Sax Buttons
Four back paddles that can also be remapped to function like any of the face buttons
An audio touch bar near the front of the controller that can be tapped to mute your mic
Removable force-feedback modules that help make the controller lighter
A removable magnetic faceplate
Interchangeable convex or concave thumbsticks
Interchangeable D-pad/control disc
A host of different colors and design options


“This is something that we’ve spent many millions of dollars developing,” says Scuf CEO and co-founder Duncan Ironmonger. “We’ve built it completely from the ground up, we’re going to be producing them in very high quantities, and we’re really looking forward to getting it out to market in one complete Scuf product.”
Like most Scuf controllers, customers can customize their color schemes and the length of their thumb sticks at purchase. Pre-orders just went live on Scuf’s website, but customers will also be able to preorder a Vantage at GameStop. These orders will start shipping in August. We’ll be getting our hands on these controllers at E3, so stay tuned for more details, and check out more images of the controller below.
[Full Disclosure: GameStop is the parent company of Game Informer.]

In a mid-term corporate-strategy report, Sony CEO Kenichiro Yoshida laid out the company's expectations for the PS4 and the overall Game & Network Services division from now until March 31, 2021. During this time, services and software are expected to drive revenue, not hardware sales.
The company says PSN currently generates annual sales of a trillion yen with 80 million monthly active users, and that PS Plus paid subscriptions have been growing from year to year – sitting at 34.2 million at the end of fiscal year 2017.
PS4 sales, which sit at 79 million units as of March 31, are declining year upon year slightly, but still put the console on pace to surpass the PS3's 83 million units sold.
Sony Interactive Entertainment CEO John Kodera said that gamers can expect more new IPs as well as "franchising successful IPs and refreshing existing IPs," according to Wall Street Journal reporter Takashi Mochizuki.
In regards to other PS4 sectors, Kodera said that PSVR, while growing, is below market expectations, and TV streaming service PS Vue is facing stiff competition. Improvement is needed from both areas within a realistic outlook.

Our Take 
Everyone wants to know when the PS5 is coming out, but now is the time for Sony to leverage the great position the PS4 is currently in. I'm excited that the company plans to use the years leading up to 2021 focusing on games – particularly new IP – which could set up the PlayStation brand nicely for the future. Let's not forget, one of Sony's greatest properties – The Last of Us – came out at the end of the PS3's life cycle. This shows that we shouldn't always be in a hurry to move on to the next system.

The NPD Group released its April report today, sharing some great news for Sony. God of War was April's best-selling game, but even more exciting is that it set a new record for highest-ever sales by dollar in a launch month for a PlayStation exclusive game.
With God of War's success, Sony earned its place as April's top-selling publisher. However, Ubisoft still has the lead for the top revenue-generating publisher this year, with Far Cry 5 being the second best-selling game of April. MLB 18: The Show earned third place, only behind God of War for best-selling exclusive. The Nintendo Labo Variety Kit also made it into the top four, while the Robot Kit only ranked at number 21. 
Some other cool stats to consider: April's overall spending across all video game hardware, software accessories, and game cards grew 18 percent compared to a year ago, with gains across all categories. Hardware spending also increased for April 2018, increasing 14 percent, with gains for Xbox One, PS4, and Plug 'N Play devices such as the SNES Classic.  The PS4 earned the highest April unit sales for a console since the Nintendo Wii in April 2009.
 
Our Take
God of War generated a lot of buzz with stellar reviews, so it's not surprising that it came out on top. In addition, I'm glad to see Nintendo Labo on the list, as it was an unknown factor for how well it would sell, but it looks like kids and adults alike are getting in on the cardboard building.

Seven years later, the influence of From Software’s Dark Souls on the games industry is impossible to ignore. A challenging atmospheric experience through classic fantasy tropes with a grim tint, Dark Souls spurred an entire genre of souls-like titles, and provided a haven for those who love exploration, larger-than-life boss battles, and a world drenched with mystery. Dark Souls Remastered is the way to play the game today if you’re on console, though PC players may have experienced many of the same improvements via Durante’s famous DSFix mod.
The most important part of the remaster is the upgrade to 60 fps. Even areas that were notorious for slow chugging like Blighttown run smooth the whole way through (although the zone is still an abomination of toxic poison, ogres, and rickety ladders). Everything looks crisp and clean, and you won’t slow down at an inopportune moment when you’re jamming your zweihander into a disgusting monstrosity’s flesh. For those that experienced the original title on console, these changes alone make the remaster worth the price of admission.

In addition, Dark Souls Remastered brings other aspects of the game up to speed with its modern counterparts like Dark Souls III. You can remap your buttons for a control scheme that suits your playstyle, use multiple items at the same time instead of having to laboriously consume each little bundle of souls, and change your covenants at bonfires. Even playing with your friends is easier than ever thanks to the implementation of a password system. These minor changes are nice additions, and don’t fundamentally alter anything from the core title.

Fortnite has been playable on the iOS for a number of weeks now, much to the frustration of high school teachers everywhere, but the next big platform for the game will thankfully come during the summer.
While no more specific date has been given from Epic in this blog post, the Android version is rolling in all the mobile updates that being tinkered with on iOS now. For example, Fortnite on mobile will allow players to change up the HUD to their liking to make the game more comfortable to play while hiding it from your teacher, boss, or other authority figure.
What can't be hidden, at least not well, is the addition of voice chat to the mobile versions of the game. Being able to talk with teams is an important part of the game on PC and console, but has been missing thus far from the iOS version. Epic is working on implementing it into the game, along with a crucial on-screen mute button, and will allow all versions to talk to each other.
There's no date yet for voice chat, either, but it should presumably launch by the time the Android version comes out. Stat tracking will also be coming to mobile soon, as well, as Epic tries to move the mobile version to be as full-featured as the other platforms.

Our Take
Fortnite mobile has taken off in a way that some people prefer playing it on their iPhone or iPad over other versions. It's good that people who like using it can employ voice chat when they need it, and it's also good that there's a button to just mute the mic or other people immediately.

Codemasters has announced the release date for F1 2018 on August 24 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC, and while the developer isn't going in-depth regarding the title just yet, it's promising that the career mode will continue to be an emphasis.
Paul Jeal, the F1 franchise director at the developer, says that career mode is being "further expanded" thanks to the return of an un-specified fan-requested feature.
Outside of bolstering the already notable career mode, more classic cars are being added as well as other to-be-announced additions.

When the NES Classic came out during the holidays in 2016 it sold out immediately thanks to low supply on Nintendo's part and high demand from the public. Nintendo has since committed to bringing the 30-game all-in-one unit back, and it will go on sale again on June 29.
Despite the release date announcement and the expectation that the NES Classic will be available through 2018, the company did not say how many units it is releasing starting in June or if it will be made indefinitely.
On a related NES note, Nintendo recently announced that the paid Switch online service includes an NES games program, and that the Virtual Console is not coming to the system.

This morning, tickets for this July's second-annual Pokémon Go Fest went live. Less than an hour later, they were sold out. According to Niantic, players will still be able to celebrate even if they couldn't get tickets or aren't able to make the trek to Chicago.

Last year's inaugural Pokémon Go Fest didn't exactly go smoothly. The event was plagued with technical issues, which made it nearly impossible for some attendees to access the game. On-stage presentations were interrupted by chants of, "Fix the game!" Niantic ultimately agreed to settle a class-action lawsuit filed by people who were upset after paying for airfare and other travel expenses.
(Please visit the site to view this media)
 
Our Take
Here's hoping that Niantic learned from its mistakes, and has figured out a way to deliver online access for a highly concentrated group of players who require it. If not, at least we'll be able to read some entertaining stories later.
