Square Enix made a huge announcement coming out of EVO 2017, and I’m more happy to report it to all of you.  Dissidia NT, a game I had a blast playing at E3 2017, will be getting a closed beta test on the PS4 and you can sign up for it right now.

EVO attendees interested in playing should not sign up for the beta in this way. Square Enix has revealed they will be emailing out guaranteed beta access codes to EVO attendees. If you haven’t gotten yours yet, check your email because you should be getting yours soon!
For those of you who haven’t had the chance to play the game yet, here’s a closer look at it!

I know Square Enix made this announcement over a day ago, but I was unwilling to talk about this until now due to ongoing technical issues with the official website.  As of now, those issues appear to be resolved and because of that I encourage everyone to go sign up as soon as possible!

Dissidia NT is coming exclusively to the PS4 in 2018.

Sony UMD Retrospective July 19, 2017

In the mid to late 2000s, Sony intended to make the PlayStation Portable the ultimate portable media device. Not only could it play games, it could also play digital music and movies on the go.  To show its versatility, Sony bundled an initial shipment of PSP systems with the UMD version of the film Spider-Man 2, one of the best movies of the previous year.

Shortly after the PSP launched, the UMD Video format saw higher than expected sales, and various movie studios started to release their films in the UMD video format.

So how good was UMD Video, what kinds of movies saw release for it, and what caused it to die?  Sit back and enjoy our complete retrospective on the UMD Video format.
