News: Is Horror Sequel Silent Hills a PS4 Exclusive?

Is Horror Sequel Silent Hills a PS4 Exclusive?

Scream in silence

The whole Rise of the Tomb Raider mess appears to have caused some confusion in the console exclusives space, so let us teach you a very valuable lesson: if Sony doesn’t scream ‘Only on PlayStation’ after revealing a project, then it’s going to end up elsewhere. Firms may use doublespeak to confuse their message – we...

UK Sales Charts: PS4 Exclusive The Last of Us Remastered Endures Another Week

"We are survivors, Tess"

There’s so little change in this week’s UK sales chart that we considered skipping it entirely and digging straight into the good stuff. That wouldn’t be especially professional, though, would it? As such, here’s your weekly British best sellers report: The Last of Us Remastered is still on top. The exclusive title...

Phantom Breaker: Battle Grounds (PlayStation Vita)

Deal breaker

Gamescom 2014: Half of Tearaway Unfolded's Content Will Be Brand New on PS4

Half of Tearaway Unfolded's Content Will Be Brand New on PS4

Paper cut

Tearaway Unfolded is a bit of a strange, papery proposition. Presented during Sony’s big Gamescom 2014 press conference as a kind of adaptation for the PlayStation 4, it wasn’t entirely clear whether it will boast brand new content or the exact same puzzles and areas as its PlayStation Vita predecessor. Now, an IGN report straight...

PS4's The Evil Within Will Chill Your Blood for Up to 20 Hours

Shiver down the spine

It really is the generation of terror, with The Evil Within one of several scary titles set to deploy on the PlayStation 4 this year. Don’t think that you’re going to see this one through swiftly either, as the Shinji Mikami developed release will unsettle you for up to 20 hours according to Bethesda’s public relations...

Cringe Through Over 20 Minutes of PS4 Exclusive Until Dawn

Avoid if you've got a heart condition

BioWare Reckons You'll Be Able to Spend Over 200 Hours in Dragon Age: Inquisition

Dragon Age: Extinction

We hope that there are enough dragons roaming the wilderness in Dragon Age: Inquisition, because we think that you'll be killing plenty of them if you're to spend over 200 hours with the upcoming RPG. Speaking with IGN, producer Cameron Lee reckons that "a completist playthrough takes more than 200 hours," which no doubt...

Review: Metrico (PlayStation Network - Vita)

Metrico (PlayStation Network - Vita)

Graph-ical grunt

Metrico is the first effort by fledgling Dutch studio Digital Dreams, but you wouldn't guess that by looking at it.
