During an interview with Game News, Uncharted voice actor Nolan North said he didn't think fans want a movie based around the Indiana Jones-esque series.

North voices and does the motion capture work for the series' protagonist Nathan Drake.

Even if he's wrong, Sony's motion picture division might not be able to get the thing off the ground.

Sony announced a film adaptation of the property back in 2009 and have had a ton of trouble putting it together.

They still don't have a director for it, having courted David O. Russell, Neil Burger, Seth Gordon and more for the project.

And this past August, Sony pushed the release date back to 2017.

So, if you're right Mr. North (and you probably aren't), you won't be disappointed if the film never happens.

Sony announces a playstation 4 price drop.

Your excuses are dwindling, you console hold outs.

Sony announced a permanent price cut for the Playstation 4 Oct. 8, lowering it to $349.99. That puts it on the same footing as Microsoft's Xbox One.

Since Sony's console has led this generation so far, it'll be interesting to see whether that lead will increase with the price drop or whether they cut it because of slipping ground.

Kotaku reported on it this morning:

Starting October 9, the PlayStation 4 will be a little cheaper in the U.S. and Canada. Oh goodie.

The PS4, which is currently $399.99 USD, will be marked down to $349.99 in the U.S., while in Canada, the console, which now costs $449.99 CAD, will be marked down to $429.99.

This appears to be for the 500GB HDD PlayStation 4 and follows hot on the heels of a price cut Japan got earlier this month.

Oooh boy, you lucky Playstation Plus subscribers you. October looks like it's going to have some good games for your Playstation 4.

Incredibly punishing (and incredibly fun) platformer Super Meat Boy and the very charming puzzle game Broken Age will both be free to download for Playstation Plus subscribers Oct. 6.

The Playstation Blog has a few more details:

Super Meat Boy will challenge even the most devoted platforming players with teeth-grinding levels, insane obstacles, horrible traps, and smiling chunks of meat. Yum! Can you stand against the gory onslaught of near-impossible tasks in Super Meat Boy? You'll find out soon enough…

If that's a little too intense, why not point and click at things, instead? Broken Age is joining the PS Plus lineup, too! In it, guide two teenagers through strangely similar circumstances but on two different worlds. With a gorgeous soundtrack and award-winning cast, Broken Age is perfect for gamers that grew up with the adventure genre. Or people that just want to hear some jokes. Jokes are always good.

Although the post says to check the official Playstation page for the free Playstation 3 and Vita games for October, that site has not yet been updated with that information.

Additionally, the hard drive bay cover for the console itself will get nine color variants on Nov. 6., including gold, silver, red, yellow, purple, and pink. Again, no western launch plans were given there. The faceplates will run ¥2,500, which is about $20.

Finally, a wireless round headset will launch in Japan on Dec. 3, costing ¥12,000, or roughly $100.

It seems like it's been a while since the great Bloodborne's February release and we're certainly looking for a reason to return to Yarnham.

Luckily, the game's first DLC expansion, called The Old Hunters, was announced on the Playstation blog Sept. 15.

Set in a nightmare world where hunters from the past are trapped forever, explore brand new stages full of dangers, rewards, and deadly beasts to overcome. You'll find multiple new outfits and weapons to add to your arsenal as well as additional magic to wield and add more variety to your combat strategy.

With new story details, learn the tale of hunters who once made Yharnam their hunting grounds, meet new NPCs, and discover another side of the history and world of Bloodborne. Here's a brief glimpse of just some of what lies in store for you when The Old Hunters launches on November 24th, including Simon's Bowblade weapon, and new boss enemy Ludwig.

The Old Hunters will release on Nov. 24 for $19.99, only on Playstation 4.

Sony renames Project morpheus to Playstation VR.

Sony officially unveiled the consumer title for the Project Morpheus during the Tokyo Game Show Sept. 15.

We've known about the virtual reality helmet and even its first quarter 2016 release window for some time, but during their Tokyo Game Show keynote, Sony execs got specific about the intention of the device. They renamed it the Playstation VR.

Forbes provides further details:

First announced back in March 2014 at the Game Developers Conference, Sony's Oculus Rift rival is powered by the Japanese giant's latest console – the PlayStation 4 – so the official moniker makes sense.

"The name 'PlayStation VR' not only directly expresses an entirely new experience from PlayStation that allows players to feel as if they are physically inside the virtual world of a game, but it also reflects our hopes that we want our users to feel a sense of familiarity as they enjoy this amazing experience," said Masayasu Ito, EVP, Division president of PS Product Business and VP, Software Design Division.

"We will continue to refine the hardware from various aspects, while working alongside third party developers and publishers and SCE Worldwide Studios, in order to bring content that deliver exciting experiences only made possible with VR."

Virtual reality is on its way, folks. And there are many, many options between this Playstation VR, the Oculus Rift, HTC/Valve's Vive, Microsoft's Hololens and more. Let's hope this variety of product provide more than disappointment.

How quickly the time goes by, especially when you're playing video games.

Over at the Playstation Blog

they've begun celebrating the landmark anniversary of the first Playstation launch in America, which happened 20 years ago Sept. 9.

Those were exciting and pioneering times for all of us: new technology, the arcade experience in the home, and no guarantee that we would still be around come the turn of the century –- or sooner. Exciting times indeed.

But we did make it. And thanks to the dedication and passion of the greatest gaming community of all time, the PlayStation Nation, we are celebrating the twentieth birthday of the original PlayStation system, which officially launched in North America on September 9th, 1995. At its launch, PlayStation was a stylish, powerful, developer-friendly game console that popularized polygonal 3D graphics and CD playback of games and music.

Do you have any memories of that launch? Any favorite PS1 games?
