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.

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!

We're back with another weekly installment of Gamnesia's Game Clash! Every Monday we pit two video games against each other, and the winner is decided by your votes! Rayman Origins, as the name suggests, returned the series to its origins with classic 2D platforming. Sonic Generations blended 2D and 3D action together catering to both classic and modern Sonic fans. Which of these 2011 series refreshes do you like more? Hit the jump to cast your vote and join the debate!

UPDATE - 10:30PM EST: Sony's server status is online, and many users have been able to successfully log back into PlayStation Network.

This is bad news for any PlayStation owners out there looking to rev up their consoles for an online game. Sony has officially confirmed in a recent tweet that PlayStation Network is offline all across the world. While Sony currently does not know the reason for the outage, they are currently looking into what could have caused it.

Stay tuned to Gamnesia for more information on the outage, and updates on the network's status.

The weekly hardware and software sales numbers from the past week in Japan are in, courtesy of Media Create, and it was a strong week. New Nintendo 3DS launched to the tune of over 230,000 sales, fueled largely by the incredible sales of Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate, which sold over 1.4 million (Famitsu puts the sales estimate at around 1.6 million) in just two days. The regular (old?) 3DS and 3DS XL models also saw a slight sales improvement over last week, as did PlayStation 4. Vita's numbers slipped a little this week, as there was only one new game on that platform. Hit the jump for the full breakdown!

Sony has slyly attempted to raise the stakes for Project Morpheus. Jed Ashforth explained to virtualrealitygamer that the company has some very interesting plans for Project Morpheus, but that he was unable to talk about them.

"On the Morpheus side, there's a lot of extremely cool, super-secret stuff that I've tried and that I'd love to be able to tell you about, but we're not at the point where we're ready to share them yet.” – Jed Ashforth

The device will be compatible with both PlayStation 4 and Vita, with games currently known to support it ranging from Project Cars to Surgeon Simulator (as if that game wasn’t macabre enough). Unfortunately, no release date has been mentioned yet.

PlayStation Now, Sony's cloud-based video game streaming service, is one step closer to launching in full. The service is still in beta, but it recently launched on PlayStation 3, and today it expanded its availability a little more. PlayStation TV launched in North America today, and PlayStation Now is available on it from day one. Seeing as PlayStation TV has all the same internal hardware as a Vita, the service is also available on Vita today. PlayStation Now allows you to "rent" games for anywhere between four hours and three months, depending on your preference. 

Mighty No. 9 wont launch until sometime next year, but many backers are currently enjoying the game's beta. Earlier we saw footage of the Military Base level, and now we've got a good look at another full level. This time it's the Power Plant level, which reminds me of the Spark Mandrill stage from Mega Man X with the hazard of flickering lights. The footage takes you all the way through the level to the final showdown with Mighty No. 3, and you can check it out by clicking below!

PlayStation TV has just launched in North America! Sony's new microconsole has the hardware of a PlayStation Vita, but without the screen and buttons. Instead, it can be used with a DualShock 3 controller and a TV to stream games via services like remote play and PlayStation Now. PlayStation TV also serves as a media hub and can play select Vita titles. PlayStation TV retails at a starting price of $99, and you can check out the launch trailer by clicking below!
