Will PS4's VR Headset Project Morpheus Be Expensive?

Sony's hoping to find the right price

Project Morpheus clearly has plenty of potential, but Sony not only has to deliver on the technology, it also has to get this product into peoples' homes.

Cause and Effect Is at the Crux of This Until Dawn Trailer

Like a butterfly

The butterfly effect is a funny thing. Earlier in the year, Sony executives sat in an office and decided to skip Gamescom 2015, blissfully unaware of the fact that we'd be subjected to a busy but still boring week. Until Dawn deals with these decisions in a different way, as you're pursued by a serial killer who looks like the star...

We Want to Be More Respectful of Players' Time with Destiny, Says Bungie

Update 2.0 brings the biggest changes to the game yet

Bungie's really trying to shake things up with Destiny: The Taken King. Whether this is because it wants to secure a few more pre-orders for the expansion or because it's keen to get lapsed players back into the game, we obviously can't say, but the developer's clearly trying to switch things...

Competitive Call of Duty Will Be Played on PS4 from Now On

On target

If this year's Gamescom has reminded us of anything, it's that "professional" gaming is a thing. Last night's Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 conference was built around the very idea of eSports, while Microsoft's briefing featured a "former Halo coach" commentating on a match. Yeah, the whole thing makes our skin crawl, too – but apparently...

Uncharted Will Scale the Silver Screen in 2017

You'll have to Nate for it

There are some things in life that never change. We've been reporting on Final Fantasy XV and The Last Guardian for eons now, but at least they've both proven to be proper products that can – no matter how fleetingly – be consumed.

Sorry, Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5 Still Looks Crap

Face plant
