Games to generally cost between $20 and $40

It sold out within minutes of being available for pre-order on Amazon, and now Sony has warned that PlayStation VR may be supply constrained when it launches on 13th October.

E3 2016: What Was That Death Stranding Trailer About?

What Was That Death Stranding Trailer About?

Honestly? No idea

Death Stranding, the new game from Hideo Kojima, looked freakin' rad, didn't it? But, er, what the f**k was going on? That's exactly what the Internet's been trying to decipher for the past 24 hours – and it hasn't come up with any solutions yet. There are theories out there, though, which are fun to chat about, we suppose...

E3 2016: Final Fantasy XV Has an Optional Turn Based Battle Mode

Final Fantasy XV Has an Optional Turn Based Battle Mode

Wait right there

We feel like we've heard about this before, but now that we've seen it in action, it seems to be far more substantial than we had previously given it credit for. During a presentation of Final Fantasy XV at E3 2016, director Hajime Tabata put the title's optional 'Wait' mode through its paces, and it honestly looks like it could...

E3 2016: Flirtatious PlayStation VR Title Summer Lesson Launches October in Japan

Flirtatious PlayStation VR Title Summer Lesson Launches October in Japan

Study hard

The exclusive PlayStation VR game that lets you study in virtual reality with a schoolgirl, Summer Lesson, will launch on 13th October in Japan. The game's essentially all about communication with an AI character: you'll need to nod or shake your head in order to interact with the studious avatar. There's no word on whether the title will...

E3 2016: Dragon Ball XenoVerse 2 Blasts into E3 with Brand New Gameplay

Dragon Ball XenoVerse 2 Blasts into E3 with Brand New Gameplay

Go go Gohan

Bandai Namco's brought some fresh Dragon Ball XenoVerse 2 gameplay to E3, and it, er, looks a heck of a lot like the first game. Not necessarily a bad thing, of course, but we were perhaps expecting something a little more impressive - the fight even takes place in one of the original's maps, which appears to have undergone zero...

E3 2016: PS4 Architect Mark Cerny Is Working on Hideo Kojima's Death Stranding

PS4 Architect Mark Cerny Is Working on Hideo Kojima's Death Stranding

In the tub

Mark Cerny, the PlayStation 4's architect, appeared in the credits for Hideo Kojima's mysterious Death Stranding trailer this week, suggesting that the industry legend will have some role in the development of the exclusive game. The outrageously talented veteran was listed as Technical Producer, which makes a lot of sense considering...

E3 2016: PS4 Exclusive Days Gone Has a Heavy Weather Component

PS4 Exclusive Days Gone Has a Heavy Weather Component

Motorcycle is being treated like a character

Days Gone – which we previously expected to be named Dead Don't Ride – surprised us in a good way at E3 2016. We'd anticipated a hammy, heavy metal vibe – but the biker culture that surrounds this post-apocalyptic release actually seems understated and thoughtfully done. But we don't know a whole...

E3 2016: There's Another Final Fantasy XV Game Coming to PS4

There's Another Final Fantasy XV Game Coming to PS4

How many extras does one game need?

At this point we'd love to know how much money Square Enix has pumped into Final Fantasy XV and all of its expanded universe stuff, but it looks like the Japanese publisher's not done yet. Alongside the game's release on the 30th September, you'll be able to get your hands on A King's Tale: Final Fantasy XV, a...

E3 2016: Sony's Added a New Studio to Its First-Party Family

Sony's Added a New Studio to Its First-Party Family

Well, sort of

Sony has no shortage of first-party studios, but it looks like a new team has been officially recruited to the Worldwide Studios family. SIE San Mateo has always had a light role in game development – it houses various internal technology groups and Entwined developer PixelOpus – but it seems like it's going to have more...

E3 2016: Here They Lie Is a Psychological PlayStation VR Exclusive

Here They Lie Is a Psychological PlayStation VR Exclusive

Looks weird

You know what genre really works in virtual reality? Horror. There's a reason that Capcom's gone PlayStation VR crazy with Resident Evil 7, and it's because the tension that survival horror creates is upped astronomically when it engulfs your entire being. Here They Lie – a new title created by a small team of industry veterans in...

E3 2016: Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV Looks Seriously Impressive

Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV Looks Seriously Impressive

Phwoar

Square Enix has always loved its CG, but we'd argue that this is the best looking CG production that the company's ever been involved with. Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV ties directly into Final Fantasy XV, telling the story of an elite group of soldiers fighting to defend their kingdom from an invading empire while Noctis is off driving...

E3 2016: The Very Best Games Are on PS4, Sony Claims

The Very Best Games Are on PS4, Sony Claims

Can't really disagree

There's no denying it: E3 is about chest-beating more than anything else. The fact that Sony's released a sizzle trailer proclaiming that the best games are on the PlayStation 4 is not all that surprising, then – and it's difficult to argue with its point. From the exclusives like God of War and Horizon: Zero Dawn to the...
