We're excited and immensely proud to announce that PlayStation Universe has re-launched today into a beta phase with a brand-new look and a responsive design, making PSU easier to read, enjoy, and navigate via mobile, tablet and PC.
What you see today is a far cry from the old site which has existed with a design that has barely changed since 2006. With this new look we want to ensure readers can access content easily, move smoothly around the site and have more articles and media to choose from on the homepage without overcrowding the screen. Gone is the bug-filled site of old to be replaced with a fresh new look that we hope will propel us forward as we enter a new and exciting era of PlayStation gaming.
Wave goodbye to the old PlayStation Universe
We’ve listened to community feedback: a focus group has directed our efforts over many hours working toward this portal for all things PlayStation, a hub for passionate gamers that’s both pleasing on the eye and gives the core PlayStation audience everything they need. But this is just the beginning. We plan to raise PSU to even greater heights with the launch of new forum software and the continued development of engaging features to keep you, our loyal readers and PlayStation devotees, entertained and informed for many years to come.
Say hello to the new PlayStation Universe
I’d like to personally thank everyone at PSU who has made this possible. From Chris and Aaron in IT and Matt in Design to Glenn and the entire editorial team for their inspiration throughout the project, the new PSU would not have been possible without a talented group of gamers ready and willing to reach higher.
The biggest thanks however is reserved for our fantastic community. Without you, the world we’ve built at PlayStation Universe is meaningless. Your hunger for all things PlayStation drives us to do better.
With so many changes made, we’d like to walk you through some of the new features and changes in order to make the transition to the new PlayStation Universe as smooth as possible.

THE NEW PSU
The login system has been overhauled so that users only need to log in once, either via the homepage or the community forums. Moving between any page on PSU will keep you logged in. Longtime visitors will remember we had an issue with the previous site where moving between pages would log you out and you’d need to sign back in. That is no longer the case. Registering and logging into PSU ensures that you can fully take part in our community section, though commenting on articles is handled via the popular Disqus commenting system.
