For all of you fighting fans out there who love to see a brawl, I'm glad to announce that Tekken 7 will be out PS4, Xbox One & PC! Tekken 7 will boast a new fighting system which will give the player a more creative combo style. Here is Tekken 7 has a new Rage System, which offers players running low on health a damage boost and access to two new moves: "Rage Art'" and "Rage Drive" For the new Rage Art move you can create this Armour attack which allows you as the player to absorb enemies hits, which can make it quite interesting. As for the new move "Rage Drive" is not as powerful, but provides a "strategic alternative" which can teach your opponents a think or too about timing. For more information about Tekken 7, check out the PlayStation dev-blog post & also check out Bandi Namco Twitter feed for the latest information.
Tekken 7 Description:
With the faithful 3D battle system intact, Tekken 7 takes the franchise to the next level with photo-realistic graphics and innovative features and fighting mechanics. Select characters from an expansive roster of your fan-favorites and new challengers, each with a distinct set of deadly techniques, martial arts moves, and combos. -Isshak Ferdjani EMEA Community Manager, Bandai Namco
Sony has announced that the PlayStation Live Events Viewer app is being discontinued for both PS3 & PS4 users in North America on January 10th. For those who never used this application, basically the PlayStation Live Events Viewer app's purpose was to give PlayStation users the ability to watch sports, music and other entertainment events live on-demand. Luckily for PlayStation 4 Users, you will be still able to buy live events from the PlayStation Store instead of using the actual Live Events App. However, PS3 will be getting the short end of the stick due to it being last gen. Personally I haven't used this application once, but at least Sony is still giving an alternative for that fan-base.
If your bored with currently grinding on FFXV or just wanna take a break from some of your hardcore titles but still want to game, feel free to check out Peakvox's two new mini games that will be available on Steam on 12/16/2016. The first mini game from Peakvox is called Route Candle which was originally out for Android & IOS devices.

The objective in the game is simple, all you have to do is just match the cats up by there variation in a row *Matching Puzzle Game.* If you want to learn about the latest news & update for any game from Peakvox check out there Twitter!
Not to long ago Sony announced that they wanted to re-market themselves into the mobile gaming industry, there competition Nintendo seems to be also tapping into the mobile gaming market. "Super Mario Run" arrives on December 15 for $10, and it's coming to the iPhone/iPad first thanks to a deal struck between Nintendo and Apple. As for PlayStation there new segment group ForwardWorks will be based in Tokyo and there main focus is to create new gaming titles for iOS and Android devices. In event in Tokyo on December 7th, Sony currently made an announcement that stated there will be 10 mobile games that will be in the works, and 6 out of those 10 games will be out in the 2017 fiscal year! For more information about this topic, click here.
So Whats The List Of Games!
Well to start of by saying Sony is coming at the mobile market in a different field of thinking. Unlike Nintendo marketing there mascot for all users from all regions, PlayStation is leading the mobile game market with more classic titles such as Parappa The Rapper and Arc The Lad. Instead of PlayStation releasing there mobile games out for the world to try out, they are releasing there mobile games first in Japan & other parts of Asia. Which makes sense in some cases, due to Arc The Lad being a really popular title in Japan. Currently only on Japan's PlayStation official blog site there is a ton of information talking about the future mobile game releases *If you want to view the official Japanese blog page in English, if you either have Google Chrome or Translate it will automatically ask you to translate in English if wished.*
"Arc the Lad"
"PaRappa the Rappa"
"Summer Holiday 20th Century"
A game starring PlayStation's Japanese mascot Toro Inoue
"Between Sky and Sea" ("Sora to Umi no Aida")
Here are some video showcases & teasers for the upcoming mobile titles!
The upcoming PlayStation content to be released has been announced. The big ticket item being the much long awaited and hyped The Last Guardian. Another game of note is Red Faction, the classic PS2 shooter remade for PS4.

I've been a true fan of the company Naughty Dog throughout there history since the original PlayStation launched! From games like Crash Bandicoot, The Last Of Us, and there action packed Uncharted series caught the hearts of many fans. Game designer, Vinit Agarwal from Naughty Dog stated that today is now the day where Uncharted 4 will finally get a Co-Op Mode! For more information about this article check out the official PS Blog page. For those who may want to buy Uncharted 4 since the new update for a multiplayer mode click here, where you'll be redirected to the PSN store for this title.
So whats going to be new for this title?
For starters, Uncharted 4: Survival will introduce a new co-op and solo mode that will make it's a official debut during the PlayStation Experience event and also at launch in mid-December.
The new mode "Survival" is a wave-based mode where you and your other friends can take on enemies and have specific objectives to keep the game spicy. "So basically the same style as GTA V survival death-matches."
For those players who spent hours in the "Co-Op Arena" back from Uncharted 2 & 3, will see alot of simulates in this new mode.
Naughty Dog has spent alot of time, revamping the core survival experience by adding new enemy types, level depth, new boss mode, and also a new progression system.
