Sony's Still Bleeding Money, But PS4's in Beast Mode

Marathon sprint

The reason behind Microsoft’s temporary Xbox One price drop is looking clearer by the minute: Sony has now shipped 13.5 million PlayStation 4 consoles worldwide – and it hasn’t even been out a year yet. The company added 3.3 million units to the system’s total tally in the quarter spanning July to September, boosting game...

Slick PS4 Shooter Resogun Will Save the Last Humans on Vita

System seller

Housemarque’s throwback arcade shooter Resogun is so good that we’d quite like to have a playable version augmented into our eyelids, but seeing as that’s not physically possible, we’ll settle for a PlayStation Vita version instead. Fortunately, it sounds like the Finnish indie is working on just that, assuming that comments...

Destiny's On-Disc DLC Locations Aren't Quite as Dastardly as You Might Think

Chop shop?

There's been a lot of noise made about Destiny's DLC locations, some of which can be accessed through glitching in the base game. Although there's not much to see in these environments, many players have expressed anger that they can be found in the first place, suggesting content has been taken from the title so that it can be released...

Why You Should Brave Outlast on PS4 This Hallowe'en

Voyeur violence

Are you looking for a scary, thrilling, and extremely gory game to play this Hallowe’en? Do you want to scream, cry, and laugh in the face of fear? Outlast on the PlayStation 4 can offer you all of these things and more, all from the comfort of one very chilling, dark, and gloomy asylum. This game tosses you into a mental health...

Yoshida: DriveClub: PS Plus Edition Delayed on PS4 Until Further Notice

Plus, grovelling

You know that things have turned sour with your game when Shuhei Yoshida, the president of Sony Worldwide Studios, has to provide an update on it. This is the second time that PlayStation’s most popular executive has had to comment on the state of DriveClub, but considering that three weeks have passed with the most mi

Sharpen That Blade, You're Going Hunting in Shadow of Mordor's Next DLC

The bigger they are

By now, Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor has won over the hearts and minds of many a player, so we suppose that it's the perfect time to reveal the title's latest slice of downloadable content, Lord of the Hunt. Promising hours of new story content, the DLC missions will see you team up with eager dwarf Torvin, as you hunt down...

Have No Fear, The Order: 1886's Gameplay Demo Is 'Ancient'

Wipe away that dust

It may have been somewhat obvious, but that gameplay demo of The Order: 1886 that we see pop up every time Sony wants to show off the game is "ancient", according to Ready at Dawn CTO Andrea Pessino. Kindly translated by DualShockers.com, a tweet from the aforementioned developer states that "it’s an “ancient” build...

Dynasty Warriors 8 Empires Marches an Army onto PS4 and PS3 Sooner Than You Think

Tactical

It's getting to the point where we can't blame people for saying that there are too many Warriors titles flooding the market. 2014 itself has had an abundance of the things, and now, just when things appeared to be quiet after the release of the superb Samurai Warriors 4, publisher Koei Tecmo has gone ahead and announced that tactically...

News: Wait, Did Sony Just Accidentally Reveal the Uncharted Collection for PS4?

Wait, Did Sony Just Accidentally Reveal the Uncharted Collection for PS4?

Not-so hidden relic

At this point, it’s probably fairly safe to assume that there will be an Uncharted Collection on the PlayStation 4. Sony has said that it doesn’t want to flood the market with re-releases, but does want to provide people that didn’t own a PlayStation 3 with an opportunity to play some of the previous generation’s best...

Costume Quest 2 Really Will Skip Hallowe'en on PS4, PS3 in Europe

No fun allowed

Y’know, if we worked at Double Fine, we’d probably be spitting our pumpkin pie all over the office carpet right now. Costume Quest 2 was announced for the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 this week – complete with exclusive Sackboy content no less – but when it was mentioned that SCEE hadn’t finalised a release date yet, we...

News: Are There Any Secret Features in PS4 Firmware Update 2.00?

Are There Any Secret Features in PS4 Firmware Update 2.00?

Yes, there are

Sony doesn’t tend to understand the concept of patch notes. While it will always detail the major changes included as part of a numbered firmware update, it frequently throws in hidden extras. This has been the case since the early days of the PlayStation 3, and just because it’s got a fancy new piece of hardware on the market, it...

Push Scare: Why Red Dead Redemption's Undead Nightmare DLC Is Perfect for Hallowe'en

Why Red Dead Redemption's Undead Nightmare DLC Is Perfect for Hallowe'en

Dead but not buried

It's no secret that I hate horror. I don't read horror, I don't watch horror, and I certainly don't play horror. I'm not entirely sure why, but I just don't see the appeal in scaring myself stupid. That said, Hallowe'en has always interested me – not because of its modern relation to ghosts and ghouls and gore, but because of...

Can't Turn on Your PS4 from Rest Mode? Here's How to Fix Firmware Update 2.00 Issue

Solution to standby power problems

While we appreciate that we’re probably jinxing things by writing this, PlayStation 4 firmware update v2.00 appears to have launched without too many setbacks. Bricked consoles are always a concern with enormous operating system overhauls like this one, but the system software refresh seems to have deployed...

29th October 2014 (Europe)

Late to the party

As with its North American counterpart, this European PlayStation Store update is absolutely bursting with new releases – but there’s one irritating absentee for this editor. Indeed, where the heck is Costume Quest 2? A game designed around Hallowe’en should arrive before said event, and if your humble host doesn’t get his...
