Earlier this month, we reported that Sony was holding a PlayStation event in Las Vegas this December. Dubbed the PlayStation Experience, the convention promises to feature "over 400,000 square feet of PlayStation games, panels, contests, signings, giveaways, collectible memorabilia, and much more." Sony recently announced that tickets to this massive, two-day event will go on sale starting tomorrow, October 24, here. Also, when it comes time for the convention, you'll want to get there early as the opening keynote address is only for the first 5,500 attendees! Until that time, Sony has provided a trailer for the gathering which you can find inside!

With the new generation of gaming consoles, a graphical standard for framerate and resolution has yet to be set. While some developers ardently vouch for fluidity over anything else, many maintain that graphical fidelity reigns supreme. With Uncharted 4: A Thief's End, Naughty Dog has planted its foot firmly with the third option — why not have both at once?

Even though it has jaw-dropping visuals as showcased in this real-time trailer, A Thief's End is still going to play in 60 FPS at 1080p when it releases next year. Not only that, but Naughty Dog went on to say that (as showcased by The Last Of Us Remastered) they are aiming for this to be the standard in all of their PlayStation 4 releases.

Activision has raised the stakes for its upcoming flagship title Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. The company has released a 4-minute trailer titled “A New Era of Multiplayer”. The trailer consists of gameplay footage showing off the new movement system, weapons and more, mixed together with commentary from various community members talking about their experience with Advanced Warfare.

The Vault of Glass is without a doubt the toughest mode in Destiny to date — it requires six high level players to work together in near perfect synchronization in order to progress through a series of increasingly difficult challenges. And that's just the standard version we're talking about. Add in the "Hard Mode" modifier and players will be lucky to make it halfway through the Vault of Glass unless the majority of their fireteam is leveled up to 30. 

Yet, that didn't deter one player from soloing the Templar on hard mode. Make the jump to see YouTube user Venom Nommy take down one of Destiny's most arduous bosses completely alone. 

The weekly hardware and software sales numbers from Japan are in, and it's a good week to be Nintendo! Like last week, Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate and New Nintendo 3DS continue to top the charts, and nothing else is even close. Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate sold another 327,000 units, and New Nintendo 3DS sold just shy of 90,000 combined units (between the regular and LL models) in its second week, bringing its two week sales total to over 324,000. Elsewhere numbers were slightly down across the board, except for Vita which got a small boost from Chaos Rings III: Prequel Trilogy debuting at number four. Click below for the full breakdown!

Can you believe that Naughty Dog has been around for 30 years now? The popular studio may now be known as the Sony-owned developer in charge of games like Uncharted and The Last of Us, but their history stretched back decades before those days. Originally called "Jam Software," the studio developed games for Sega Genesis and even 3D0 before hitting it big with Crash Bandicoot on PlayStation, and eventually joining the PlayStation family as first-party studio. A documentary celebrating 30 years of Naughty Dog is currently in the works, and you can check out a promo video by clicking below!

With the official release of Grand Theft Auto V coming out on next-gen consoles and PC next year, many people can't wait to get their hands on it. This has led to some reports of an official, pre-release beta. Rockstar has heard these reports and has since stated that there will be no beta for Grand Theft Auto V. They further warn that any claim of a beta is most likely a scam. Do not fall for any claims otherwise!

A number of gaming journalists have been teasing a mystery title for the PlayStation 4 that is to be announced in December 2014. They say that it will "engulf the internet"and will "make a lot of noise".
