    Sony released its Q2 financial results, and reports a +3.3million PS4 units sold (13.5 million) from July-September, and reporting a loss even though the PS4 is showing strong performance.

    Sony just disclosed its financial results for the fiscal quarter between July 1st and September 30th 2014, showing solid results for the game division with an operating income of 200 million dollars. The company as a whole unfortunately posted a rather sizable oprating loss of 785 million dollars resulting in a net loss of 1.247 billion dollars.
    Despite that, sales were up 7.2% compared to the same period last year, even thanks to the strong performance of the PS4, that also determined a strong increase in income from network services.
    And the performance of Sony’s new console is indeed strong, with 3.3 million units shipped in the quarter, bringing the total up to a very flattering 13.5 million, making it the fastest selling console in its first fiscal year of sales.
    Below you can see the detailed figures for the whole company and for the game division.

    PS4 Share Play is out, but it does come with its own handcuffs. Guests connected via SharePlay are limited to 720p and have significantly lower FPS at around 30 FPS (maybe even less). In addition, other things such as save games are limited to host machine and sessions are limited to 60 minutes.

    Some facts:

    SHARE PLAY
    • Share Play lets PS4 users host a game session that they can invite a friend to watch, take control of, or (if they're playing a local, single-screen multiplayer game) join them to play, even if their friend doesn't own the game.
    • In order to use Share Play, the host must be a PS Plus subscriber. The guest does not need to be a PS Plus subscriber to watch the host's Share Play session or take control of the host's game. However, playing multiplayer games together requires that both the guest and host have a PS Plus subscription.
    • You can host a Share Play session by pushing the Share button and selecting the Share Play option. A private party will automatically be created from which you can invite a friend to join.
    • Share Play sessions are limited to 60 minutes. However, Sony states that there are no limits on how many times the same user can join a Share Play session for the same title. In theory, there is nothing to stop the guest playing through the entirety of a game they don't own, provided the host is willing to continue inviting the guest to take control of their game after each 60 minute session.
    • Sony has not fully explained the reason for the 60 minute restriction, but it appears to be a speed bump put in place to reduce exploitation and encourage the guest to purchase the game themselves. Sony says that the 60 minute restriction proved to be the "sweet spot" when discussing the feature with game creators, but that it will listen to user feedback to see "whether it's right".
    • While Sony is aiming for Share Play to be a standard feature across the platform, publishers/developers can place restrictions on content that can be shared. For example, publishers may choose to prevent playable alphas and betas from being shared with guests.
    • There may also be scenarios where spoiler content is blocked from Share Play. "Generally it's a standard platform feature," SCEE's VP of Product Planning Murray Hume explained. "We do know that there are situations where if the game contains a spoiler or if it requires a peripheral for a certain stage, then we have a facility we provide that allows that portion of the game to be stopped and not shown... because there are certain contexts in which it doesn't work." It isn't clear what will be displayed on the guest's screen during these moments or how frequently they may occur.
    • Share Play is only compatible with games. You cannot broadcast Netflix to a guest's display, for example.
    • While Share Play is in operation, the guest can only control the game and cannot perform other functions on the host's PS4. The guest cannot access the host's personal information.
    • The host can take back control of their PS4 at any point by pressing the Share button on their DualShock 4 and ending the session.
    • The guest cannot remotely turn off the PS4 once they are done playing the game. System functionality remains the responsibility of the host.
    • Notifications intended for the host (such as messages and friend requests) will not be displayed on the guest's screen.
    • Trophies cannot be unlocked on the guest's account.
    • Game progress cannot be saved on the guest's account.
    • Once a guest has played a game owned by a host, that game's icon will appear in the recently played section of the guest's PS4 Home screen directing them towards the PlayStation Store. "This will encourage additional game title sales for game publishers," Yanase says.
    • Share Play is currently only compatible with PS4. A PS4 user, for example, cannot invite a PS Vita user to watch or take control of their game.
    • You cannot livestream directly through PS4 at the same time as using Share Play.
    • Resolution is capped at 720p on the guest's display during Share Play. Much like a live broadcast, resolution will scale up and down depending on the quality of both parties' internet connection.
    • There is a similar cap on frame rate, although Sony has not specified exactly what it is. Based on our early demonstration, the cap appears to be 30fps.
    • While latency did not appear to be an issue during our demonstration, both the host and guest PS4s were connected to a wired network at Sony's London offices. As of this writing we have been unable to test Share Play in a typical 'real world' environment, but Sony stresses that it does not require super-fast broadband.

    Another lawsuit, another day for EA.
    A class action lawsuit levied against Electronic Arts for allegedly misleading investors over the performance of Battlefield 4 was dismissed this week, with U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California Judge Susan Illston labeling the publisher's promises as pre-release "puffery," rather than intentionally misleading hype.

    The lawsuit was filed late last year, accusing Electronic Arts of misrepresenting "the development and sales of the Company's Battlefield 4 video game and the game's impact on EA's revenue and projects moving forward." Battlefield 4 suffered numerous issues upon its launch in November, leaving many players unable to access its online multiplayer component. Fixes arrived months after the game's initial release, leading EA CEO Andrew Wilson to later describe the debacle as "unacceptable."

    EA argued that its pre-release statements had no direct bearing on the plaintiffs' decisions to purchase company stock. In addition, the publisher noted that five of the eight company-issued statements labeled as misleading in the suit were made after plaintiffs had already purchased EA stock.

    "Defendant [CFO Blake] Jorgensen's Oct. 29, 2013 statement comparing 'BF4' to a World Series ace pitcher is puffery," Judge Illston wrote. "Defendant Wilson's Oct. 29, 2013 statement explaining that EA 'worked more closely with Microsoft and Sony throughout the entire process' resulting in a 'launch slate of games that are the best transition games that I've ever seen come out of this company' is an inactionable opinion, as well as a vague statement of corporate optimism."

    Illston's response does not represent a total dismissal of the case. Lead plaintiffs Ryan Kelly and Louis Mastro must revise their statements by November 3 to continue the suit,

    New details have been announced for PS4's upcoming firmware update being called "Masamune". To quote:


    Sony Computer Entertainment Japan and Asia shared quite a lot of information on the features coming with firmware 2.0 “Masamune,” but quite a few more caveats have been mentioned on the PlayCommunity site.The Share Play feature, which is built into the party chat app, will also follow the rules below:
    • You can be in a Party with 8 people, but Share Play can be done only with one of them at the same time. The rest of the Party won’t be able to see the screen, but will still be able to chat with host and guest.
    • When the host is visualizing any other screen than the game being shared, the guest is shown a “stand by” screen.
    • The Share Play time is limited to one hour, and the remaining time is visualized in the Party screen, but you can start a new session immediately after the one before expires.
    • Certain games may have scenes that cannot be displayed during Share Play.
    • While you use Share Play, livestreaming and remote play are not available.
    • The guest cannot save video clips and screenshots during share play.
    There’s some more info also about the USB Music Player app:
    • It’s not possible to copy music files from USB to the internal hard disk of the PS4.
    • The tile of the USB music player will be shown exclusively if the connected USB storage has a “Music” folder. Also, it cannot be used at the same time as Music Unlimited.
    • Tracks played by the music player won’t be heard while livestreaming and in videos recorded by the PS4.
    There’s no precise information, for now, about when the new firmware will be released by Sony. Hopefully it won’t take too much longer.

    Video Comparison showing how Alienware Alpha performs graphically against PS4 and XBox One.


    The $550 version of Alienware's Alpha ships with a 2.9GHz Intel Core i3 CPU, 4GB of DDR3 RAM, and a slightly souped up Nvidia GTX 860M GPU with 2GB of VRAM. Considering the modest specs, it's surprising to see how well the Alpha fares when put up against PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

    The only cons are Price and GPU can't be upgraded
