Here's How Resident Evil 4 Looks on the PS4

Leon! Leon!

Resident Evil 4 needs no introduction – it's one of the greatest games ever made, after all. And it's coming to the PlayStation 4 in just about a week's time, so Capcom has released the first ever gameplay footage of that version. Unsurprisingly, it looks a lot like… Well, Resident Evil 4. What were you expecting? At the end of...

Review: Metrico+ (PS4)

Metrico+ (PS4)

A bar set high

While Sony may not give the PlayStation Vita much love these days, others have set out to do so over the years to prove the handheld's worth. Digital Dreams was one such developer who exclusively released its debut title Metrico on the neglected platform in 2014. It received both glowing and scathing remarks for varying reasons, but...

News: Sony Sends Out Another Wave of PS4 Firmware 4.0 Beta Invites

Sony Sends Out Another Wave of PS4 Firmware 4.0 Beta Invites

Second time lucky

Potentially good news if you applied for the PlayStation 4 firmware 4.0 beta and didn't receive an invite, as Sony's sending out a second wave of emails. Maybe you'll get lucky this time around. The beta allows participants to sample the system's next update, which adds folders so that you can organise your games and apps, and...

Review: Armikrog (PS4)

Armikrog (PS4)

State of clay

Armikrog begins with such promise. Your introduction to this claymation world is a long and wonderfully weird theme song that serves as a prologue of sorts, and it leads into a beautifully animated cutscene that really showcases the talent on board. Many of the minds behind this Kickstarted adventure game are also responsible for The...

Store Update: 23rd August 2016 (Europe)

23rd August 2016 (Europe)

Amadeus, ama-Deus Ex

Phew! A big week on the European PlayStation Store this time is headlined by Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, which is out today. It's joined by Playdead's incredible Inside, as well as the likes of Worms W.M.D and the new beta version of Ni-Oh. Plenty to get your teeth stuck into, then, but what are you buying? PS4 Games: Deus Ex:...

Free Nioh Beta Is Out for Blood Right Now on PS4

Samurai showdown

Following up on April's alpha, the Nioh beta is out now on PlayStation 4. Providing a more in-depth look at Team Ninja's intense action role-playing game, the beta should be well worth a download if you're a fan of challenging combat and sinister settings. We quite liked the aforementioned alpha, so it'll be interesting to see...

UK Sales Charts: F1 2016 Overtakes No Man's Sky to Take Pole

Va va vroom

Whoops, we forgot about the UK sales charts! That's probably an indication of just how uninteresting they've been for some time now, but we should probably cover them anyway. F1 2016 has raced into an early lead, overtaking No Man's Sky to take pole position this week. LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens squeezed a place on the podium...

News: The PS4 Slim Looks Much, Much Nicer Than You Think It Does

The PS4 Slim Looks Much, Much Nicer Than You Think It Does

Short and sweet

One of the reasons Sony's so keen to shut down leaked images of the PlayStation 4 Slim is because, typically, the amateur snaps aren't especially flattering. Indeed, the platform holder's unannounced console has been deemed ugly from every corner of the web based on the handful of photos released, but it looks much nicer in the...

Opinion: Why the Heck Is Sony Making a PS4 Slim?

Why the Heck Is Sony Making a PS4 Slim?

The not-so little question

So, the PlayStation 4 Slim is real, and Digital Foundry made a video to prove it. Then lawyers got involved, and the hastily recorded clip got removed – you know how it goes. Still, this has all happened rather fast, hasn't it? If you'd have asked us on Sunday morning whether Sony would make a more compact PS4 console,...

Review: Inside (PS4)

Inside (PS4)

Step Inside

Reviewing Inside is a tough proposition. On the one hand, this is a game that is fully deserving of a write-up overflowing with superlatives. On the other hand, to describe practically anything that happens in the game in anything other than the vaguest of terms would be to rob the player of the joy of discovering those moments for...

News: Fallout 4 Patch 1.09 Is Out Now on PS4

Fallout 4 Patch 1.09 Is Out Now on PS4

Get more wood and steel from vendors

What could potentially be one of Fallout 4's final updates, patch 1.09 is available to download now on PlayStation 4. The update weighs in at around 2.4GB, and, unsurprisingly, adds support for Nuka World, the game's upcoming expansion which is due to launch at the end of this month. According to the official...

News: Mafia III's Stunning Sixties Soundtrack Could Be the Best of the Open World Bunch

Mafia III's Stunning Sixties Soundtrack Could Be the Best of the Open World Bunch

Rolling Stones, Beach Boys, James Brown, and more

We love a good licensed soundtrack in our games. Sometimes, a fitting selection of tunes can really solidify the feel of a release - the inclusion of Stan Bush's The Touch in Saints Row IV was inspired, for example - and with Mafia III, we've been hoping and praying for a stellar sixties soundtrack...

News: Leaked PS4 Slim Console Confirmed to Be Legit

Leaked PS4 Slim Console Confirmed to Be Legit

Watch it powering up

We knew that last night's PlayStation 4 Slim leaks were legit – you don't get that many pictures from so many different angles without some level of authenticity. But as a few people have pointed out, in this age of 3D printers you can never be too careful. Digital Foundry decided to visit the person who purchased the...

Review: Hitman: Episode 4 - Bangkok (PS4)

Hitman: Episode 4 - Bangkok (PS4)

Too many Kooks

Like milk and cookies, fish and chips, and a copy of Ride to Hell: Retribution and the nearest volcano, hotels and Hitman go together very well. There's something about the maze of rooms, the abundance of staff, and the classy yet clandestine nature of these establishments that always make good missions for Agent 47, and the episodic...
