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...

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...

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.

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...

Samurai showdown

Following up on April's alpha, the Nioh beta is out now on PlayStation 4.

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...

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,...
