Sony: PS4K Will Not Shorten the PS4's Lifecycle

They're the same thing

It's been reiterated a dozen or so times now, but Sony has clarified that the PlayStation 4K (or Neo as it's known internally) will not bring a premature end to the current generation.

God of War on PS4 Won't Be the End of Kratos, and You Don't Play as the Kid

Who's the daddy

Behind closed doors at E3, God of War director Cory Barlog spilled a load of beans with regards to the fantastic looking PlayStation 4 exclusive, and thankfully, Level Up were there to absorb all the juicy information. According to the series veteran, Kratos' upcoming adventure won't be his last, hinting that Sony has further plans...

God of War PS4 Axes Multiplayer

Single player is the one and only focus

Remember God of War: Ascension's multiplayer mode? As far as we can remember, it was actually pretty cool, but the competitive component won't be making a return in God of War on PlayStation 4.

Japanese Sales Charts: PS4 Returns to Top Spot Despite Distinct Lack of New Games

Here we are again

It's been another incredibly quiet week for PlayStation in Japan as only one new title, Root Letter, released on Sony's latest system - and those sales figures aren't even worth mentioning.

Here's Your Last Look at Star Ocean Before it Launches on PS4

Shooting star

After months and months of adding a '5' to the end of Star Ocean, we've only just realised that the Western release isn't numbered - it's just called Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness. Whoops. Anyway, this launch trailer is likely your last chance to spy new gameplay before the role-playing game hits store shelves in just over...

DLC Review: Making Settlements a Little More Fun with Fallout 4's Contraptions

Making Settlements a Little More Fun with Fallout 4's Contraptions

They call me the tinkerer

Fallout 4's Contraptions add-on is the kind of downloadable content that a lot of players are going to brush aside. It's not the sort of DLC that'll drag lapsed survivors kicking and screaming back to the Commonwealth, and it's certainly not the kind of add-on that's going to breath hours upon hours of new life into...

"All new story, all new world"

With Spider-Man: Homecoming due to release in cinemas next year, many have been wondering whether Spider-Man - announced during Sony's E3 2016 press conference - will tie into the upcoming Marvel flick.

Deadlight: Director's Cut (PS4)

Flickers of hope

Arriving in 2013 as part of Xbox's Summer of Arcade, Deadlight reinvigorated the zombie horror genre with its classic 2D platforming and a uniquely bleak dreary tone. With the release of its next project RIME seemingly in development hell, Tequila Works has decided to revisit its esteemed debut to bring it glossier graphics, tighter...

Sony's Considering a European PlayStation Experience Event

PS I Love EU

PlayStation Experience has been an enormous success. The first event was more of an experiment really, but it went from strength-to-strength in 2015, suggesting that the US version will return again in December. But it sounds like Sony may be planning a European leg of the popular fan-fest as well, with the snippet buried in a Game...

Mighty meat feast

'Tis the week after E3 2016 and we're supposed to be slap bang in the middle of the summer lull, but there are no signs of any software shortages on the PlayStation Store, that's for sure.

Koei Tecmo's Berserk Game Won't Get an 18+ Rating

Bloody hell

Let's face it, Koei Tecmo isn't known for dabbling in overly violent or decidedly mature games, so it's no wonder that Berserk fans have been pondering the publisher's position on Berserk, the upcoming action title that's based on the manga and anime property. If you know Berserk, then you'll know that it's not for the faint of heart;...

PS4 Firmware Update 3.55 Doesn't Appear to Do Much

Oh well

PlayStation 4 firmware update v3.55 is available now, but it probably doesn't do much. While we don't have access to the patch notes just yet – we'll add any information we can get hold of to the bottom of this post – it's assumed that this 300MB download is merely designed for stability. Perhaps it may pave the way for the eventual...
