Busy Busy SonBees

Now that the hangover from the Apple Watch's announcement has slightly washed away, Sony have decided to drop a whole load of news on us, some good, some bad. The most talked-about newsbit comes from Naughty Dog (Speaking on the Playstation Blog) who announced that Uncharted 4's been delayed until Spring next year, which I'm not surprised about. In my opinion, I'm fine with it: it's one less punch to my wallet in the money-gobbling Winter months, and since a few of Sony's exclusives have been disappointing or broken lately, I'm sure that Naughty Dog are being extremely careful to make sure that A Thief's End lives up to the hype.

Sony have been cancelling a lot of services lately, from Music Unlimited to the PS VITA Maps app, and the next service to be strung up by the gills is Playstation Mobile, the service that brought Playstation games to selected Sony phones and tablets. The Store will be shut down on the 15th of Jul this year, while the app won't be downloadable after September 10th, but you'll still be able to play all of your downloaded PSM games after, provided they're installed. There are two major services that make PSM obsolete, and both of them are on phones: Remote Play, which lets VITA and Sony mobile device owners play their PS4 on the go, and Playstation Now (Also available on mobile) that'll let consumers play PS3, PS2 and PS1 games via streaming. PSM was a waste of time, and it's a good idea to shut it down, especially after the drop in Sony phone sales.

My Trailer of the Day today is no trailer, because there weren't any good ones!
