So far in 2014 PlayStation 4 has been dominating the charts, taking the top hardware spot in North America nine months in a row, but competition looks to be on the way. Xbox One sales are on the rise, and games like Sunset Overdrive and Halo: The Master Chief Collection should provide some extra steam. Wii U sales have risen over last year's numbers, and Super Smash Bros. for Wii U is sure to be a system seller. With the holidays fast approaching, which console is in the best position to take advantage of the biggest sales weeks of the year? Hit the jump to cast your vote and join the debate!

PlayStation Experience — an all out gaming extravaganza for Sony fans in Las Vegas on December 6th and 7th — has received a list of a few of the games that will be playable at the event, and they certainly don't disappoint. The lineup will be comprised of larger AAA titles, as well as a variety of indie titles, and will grant fans early access to unreleased PlayStation titles slated for release this coming year. 

Make the jump to see which games will be playable at PlayStation Experience this December. 

A new trailer for Resident Evil HD Remaster has surfaced just in time for Halloween! Many things were showcased in the trailer, such as the ability to switch between 4:3 and 16:9 resolution. You can also switch between control schemes, so if you don't like the traditional Resident Evil controls, you don't have to use them! Head back to the mansion on November 27 for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, while PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC owners will have to wait until 2015. The game looks absolutely incredible if you ask me, so I can't wait to get my hands on it! What do you think? Head inside to see the trailer!

In addition to strong hardware sales, the PlayStation brand saw fantastic software sales for the second quarter of the fiscal year. Sony sold over 4 million total consoles (including 3.3 million PlayStation 4 units), and 106 million units of software. For the full fiscal year (ending March 30, 2015), Sony expects to sell 17 million home consoles 3.5 million portable consoles, and a whopping 390 million total pieces of software. Analysts predict that PlayStation 4 will exceed these numbers, but Sony CEO Shuhei Yoshida is waiting to see Holiday sales before taking a more "bullish" stance on his projections. 

After spending an entire console cycle in development hell, switching graphics engines multiple times, and even changing its name, Final Fantasy XV is finally progressing nicely and in a form that Square Enix is willing to show to the public. In fact, they'll even be launching a demo for the game next March. Nearly ten minutes of new gampelay footage has just been released, showing off the game's vast, beautiful world, and you can check it out by clicking below!

The news from Sony's investor meetings is still coming in, and an earning's call with Sony's foreign investors has just revealed two more tidbits. PlayStation Plus is now just shy of 8 million subscribers, thanks to huge boosts from Destiny and FIFA 15. Additionally, Sony has finally given a window for their China strategy. PlayStation 4 is now targeted to launch early next year in the new market, although it was noted that a careful approach must be taken, as the Chinese market is heavily regulated. Xbox One launched in China just over a month ago and saw positive day one sales.

The numbers are in for Sony's performance in the second quarter of the fiscal year (July 1 - September 30), and there's some good news and some bad news. The PlayStation brand is profitable for the second straight quarter, generating an operating income of $200 million thanks to strong sales from PlayStation 4. Unfortunately, that's about all that's going right for Sony at the moment, as losses from other divisions combined to form a quarterly loss of $1.247 billion. Sony expects to take an operating loss of ¥40 billion (around $36 million) for the full year.

There's been a lot of buzz surrounding the reveal of Nintendo's second quarter financial report, and now it's Sony's turn.  Sony has released lots of information regarding the company's performance from July 1 - September 30, including some pretty impressive numbers for PlayStation 4. Their impressive, young home console sold 3.3 million units in the past three month, bringing its lifetime total of shipments (sold to retailers, not necessarily sold through to customers) to over 13.5 million. This makes it the fastest-selling PlayStation console to date!

Although Bungie's Destiny has had exceptional sales numbers and pulled in huge profits, it has also seen its fair share of complaints. One key component of the game that was seen as particularly lackluster by many players and reviewers was the story. In an interview with Eurogamer prefaced by the opening statement "Destiny's story failed," Bungie president Harold Ryan talked about the upcoming expansion, The Dark Below, promising that it offers "a very different approach to telling a new story to players than the thematically-driven story from the original launch of the game." Check out the full statement below!

The Dark Below, the first expansion for Bungie-developed sci-fi shooter Destiny, is set to launch on December 9, but other currently unavailable content has already been discovered in the game. In the past many companies have shipped games with fully fleshed out extras hidden away to be unlocked later as "downloadable content" for a price, and this practice of charging for on-disk DLC typically does not sit well with gamers. In a recent interview Bungie president Harold Ryan explained that this is not the case with Destiny. Hit the jump to check it out!
