Sony wants to give you some variety in your Playstation 4 controllers.

The company announced new color options for the Dual Shock 4 during its Tokyo Game Show keynote address.

Polygon has the details:

The controllers (above) will come in gold, silver and "steel black" beginning Nov. 6, with a clear plastic crystal following on Dec. 3. The launch dates are for Japan; Sony did not give any information for western availability, though the gold and silver controllers have been announced for Europe.

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.

Back in the early 1990s, Nintendo and Sony teamed up to make a video game console combining Nintendo's Super Nintendo technology with Sony's Compact Discs. It was the original PlayStation. After the collaboration fell through, Sony moved forward with making the PlayStation we know now, but dizzle521 has one of the original protoypes for the canceled Nintendo Playstation. It's an impressive piece of video game history.

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.

PlayStation 4 reserves 3.5GB of its 8GB GDDR5 memory for the operating system, leaving 4.5GB of space for game code, according to current PlayStation 4 documentation shown to Digital Foundry by a well-placed development source. However, further sources suggest that an additional 1GB of "flexible memory" may be reclaimed from the OS reservation, based on availability. Read the entire story at Eurogamer.

In summary:
Xbox One = 3GB OS and 5GB for games.
Playstation 4 = 3.5GB OS and 4.5-5.5 for games because of "flexible" memory.

News of the Street Fighter V roster has been a slow drip that will probably continue until the game releases in spring 2016, but the latest will surely make that wait even longer for some fans of the fighting series.

The Official Playstation Blog, too excited to contain themselves, announced that Vega will return with his mask and three-pronged claw for the next Street Fighter iteration.

A mainstay in the franchise since his introduction in Street Fighter II, Vega believes that beauty is the truest form of strength and that he alone is the epitome of perfection. The mask he wears serves to protect his face from the blood of his victims, and his deadly three-pronged claw ensures he is able to dish out pain from a safe distance away. Learning ninjutsu at a young age from a Japanese acquaintance, Vega quickly shot up the ranks in Shadaloo, eventually becoming one of the four bosses of the criminal organization.

...[H]e now has the ability to sheathe his claw during battle in exchange for new moves, such as a command grab, as well as new attack properties, greatly changing the way he approaches each fight. Knowing when to toggle between the two styles will be the key to success, and it also allows for new combo possibilities. Conversely, Vega will no longer be able to pick up his claw once it's knocked off, so knowing how to fight without the claw is a must!



Capcom has only announced 10 of the 16 total launch characters so far with Vega joining Ken, Ryu, Chun-LI, Nash, M. Bison, Cammy, Birdie and Necalli. Four characters will be completely new to the series.



The announcement might have been a way to take attention from the disappointing beta over the July 25 weekend that kept the vast majority of players from testing the game.



For all of you Xbox One owners out there, Sony has bought exclusivity rights. So the only way you're going to play it is by buying a Playstation 4. Does Vega make it worth it for you?

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.

Sony's website where you can find a PlayStation 4 kiosk near you, Experience PlayStation, is wildly inaccurate. Apparently, the nearest PlayStation kiosk to me is in the floral design company Bella Rugosa.

Try it out for yourselves and let us know where your nearest kiosk is in the comments!
