Metal Gear Solid 5's Collector's Edition Sounds Like a Big Old Disaster

Tactical erroneous action

There's more drama surrounding Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain's collector's edition than a Hideo Kojima game itself. Reports are piling out of sites like Reddit and NeoGAF regarding delays to the bumper box set, which includes a copy of the game alongside a bionic arm and various other bits and bobs that have almost...

PlayStation Promises Massive Presence at PAX Prime 2015

Tons to see and do

One thing that PlayStation's really good at is showing up at conventions and bringing a lot of content for fans to get their hands on. To be honest, it must be both extremely expensive and really challenging to hit all of these shows, but Sony seems to go to practically every single one, ensuring that gamers have an opportunity...

The Kids Aren't Alright in This War of Mine PS4

Keep it together for the kids

Well, that was a pleasant surprise. The Kids Aren't Alright was the last song that we were expecting to hear when we booted up the trailer for This War of Mine: Little Ones, but we suppose that The Offspring's classic pop punk single fits pretty darn well. Based upon 11 Bit Studios' survival smash, this game will put...

First Impressions: Bashing Our Brainnns Against PS4's Zombie Vikings

Bashing Our Brainnns Against PS4's Zombie Vikings

Thor you should know a little more about this title

Arriving digitally next week is hack-'n'-slash adventure Zombie Vikings – unsurprisingly a game about undead vikings slicing their way through numerous enemies in a side-scrolling quest. We were lucky enough to play a short preview build prior to release to see how this comical adventure is...

Knife to See You! Here's a First Look at the Assassin's Creed Movie

Filming starts next week

Assassin's Creed is an absolutely colossal brand these days, so of course there's a movie in the works. Prometheus thesp Michael Fassbender was signed up what feels like an eternity ago to front the flick, and here's a first glimpse of him kitted out with hoods and hidden knives. The film will begin shooting next week, but...

Review: One Piece: Pirate Warriors 3 (PS4)

One Piece: Pirate Warriors 3 (PS4)

Treasured company

We loved One Piece: Pirate Warriors 2 on the PlayStation 3 like a captain loves his crew, so we've always had high hopes for its sequel, One Piece: Pirate Warriors 3. Like most of Omega Force's other musou titles, the third game in this licensed series has made the jump to the new generation, meaning that you can expect more...

Review: Toy Soldiers: War Chest (PS4)

Toy Soldiers: War Chest (PS4)

I love the smell of polyurethane in the morning

Occasionally there comes a game that sounds like the next big hit on paper but crumples into a steaming heap when in practice. Enter Toy Soldiers: War Chest, a game that pits the likes of the Care Bears against the armies of Castle Grey Skull in this tower defense escapade that takes a fundamentally...

The First Fansite for PS4 Exclusive Dreams Is Live

Day dreamer

Media Molecule's always had a vibrant community surrounding its games, and it looks like that's set to continue with Dreams, the mysterious PlayStation 4 exclusive that was announced at E3 2015 earlier in the year. We don't even know what the title is yet, but that's not stopped dreambubble.me from arriving on the scene...

The Witcher 3 Sold a Whopping 6 Million Copies in Its First 6 Weeks on the Market

Raking in the coin

According to CD Projekt Red's latest financial report, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt sold through more than 6 million units in its first six weeks on the market. Perhaps an expected result for a title that's received such high praise and a solid marketing campaign, but it's a great statistic for a bloody good game regardless. The...

Sony Executive to Star in Dragon's Dogma Online

But it's not Kaz Hirai

Missed opportunity, Capcom – missed opportunity. As part of a livestream overnight, the publisher announced that a Sony executive will appear in upcoming MMO Dragon's Dogma Online – but it's not Kaz Hirai. Instead, it's Sony Computer Entertainment Japan president Atsushi Morita who's been repurposed in the game –...

Meet the Heroes from Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5

Daily grind

Is skating still popular? We're not sure, but we certainly don't recognise any of the pros from this Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5 trailer. Well, aside from the Birdman and his son Riley, of course. In this clip, the "stars" talk about how cool it is being in a video game, which we can understand – especially seeing as most of these grew up...

Hardware Rivals Trademark Registered by Sony in Japan

Could it be London Studio's next title?

Hardware: Rivals – a new game name supposedly registered by Sony in Japan – sounds like it should be PlayStation's take on that wacky Dreamcast role-playing release that depicted the demise of SEGA, but there's greater evidence to suggest that it's the next title from London Studio. We're going to assume...

Japanese Sales Charts: Kept You Waiting, Huh?

Fortunately, there's not much to see here

Once again, there's nothing doing in the Japanese sales charts – well, unless you're fascinated by the evergreen nature of Nintendo's biggest franchises. Actually, the PlayStation 4 is proving a bit of an oddity in the East at the moment; it's not selling well by any stretch of the imagination, but it's...

Street Fighter V's PS4 Beta Readies for Round Two

Ken you believe it?

Street Fighter V is spoiling for a fight – and it's going to host a five day royal rumble starting 28th August. Following last week's European server stress test, the brawler's PlayStation 4 beta will return proper this weekend. This means that if you've got the client installed on your console, you should be able to enjoy...
