This Yakuza Zero Commercial Has Got It All and More

TGI Friday

Fledgling marketing managers take note: this is how you sell a video game. Yakuza Zero's overseas advertisement may only have 15 seconds to work with, but it crams bad fashion, brutal beat downs, and Super Hang-On all into its reduced running time. If this doesn't make you want to own Kazuma Kiryu's latest, you're not human.

Bloodborne's New Boss Will Cause You Grievous Bodily Harm

Bone crusher

No, that's not an Iron Maiden album cover – it's actually the latest boss to be revealed for PlayStation 4 exclusive Bloodborne. Imaginatively named the Darkbeast, the malformed monster consists mostly of electricity and bones. He also appears borderline impossible to beat. Par for the course for From Software's forthcoming release,...

In Case You Missed It, Here's a Fantastic Look at Final Fantasy XV's Dynamic Wildlife 

Natural beauty

Originally appearing in Square Enix's most recent Active Time Report livestream, this trailer's bound to drum up some hype for Final Fantasy XV. We don't say that lightly, either, as this look at the game's dynamic wildlife is fantastic from start to finish. Many titles have tried to create believable, living ecosystems, but we...

Dragon Ball XenoVerse PS4, PS3 Tips for Being a Better Brawler

No anti-gravity training required

It can be tough being a Dragon Ball fan, can't it? Not every licensed game's good enough to scratch that insatiable itch for Akira Toriyama's action packed creation, but thankfully, while not perfect, Dragon Ball XenoVerse is actually pretty great. As such, we're sure that many of you have already rushed out and...

PlayStation's Winning the Digital Games Revenue War

And by quite some margin, it seems

When looking at console sales, people often overlook the network impact. Indeed, we're so focused on hardware numbers that we tend to forget that every PlayStation 4 sold means a potential PlayStation Plus subscription and various PlayStation Network purchases as well. It would appear that Sony's quietly lapping...

Toukiden: Kiwami's PS4 and Vita Cross-Play Looks Pretty Neat

Cross combo

Cross-play is a decent little feature, when you think about it. Allowing players using different consoles to play with each other, it's a good, simple way to expand the base amount of users. Toukiden: Kiwami's latest trailer shows cross-play in action between the PlayStation 4 and Vita versions of the upcoming release. Obviously if you...

Ubisoft's Going to Put More Modern Day Stuff in Future Assassin's Creed Games

Oh dear

We don't know about you, but we don't think that the lack of modern day content was Assassin's Creed Unity's biggest problem. Sure, it was almost non-existent and consisted of little more than a few daft cutscenes, but at least this meant that it didn't really get in the way of the historical story or its pacing. This particular author...

Those that have topped up their Tumblr knowledge of late will be aware of the dress debate that's taken social media by storm. For those out of the loop, an image showing a white and gold dress has prompted an online rift, as some argue that it's actually black and blue. We'v

Size Really Does Matter in PS4 Platformer Shiftlings

Blimey

They say that size doesn't matter, but in forthcoming PlayStation 4 indie Shiftlings, it means everything. Taking charge of two connected creatures, you'll be able to transfer your heft between the duo, introducing plenty of head scratching puzzle potential. The platformer – developed by Norwegian studio Rock Pocket Games – also boasts a...

Sony Making Final Arrangements for March PlayStation Plus Freebies

Patience is a virtue

We were all expecting March's free PlayStation Plus games to be announced today, but it seems like Sony's not quite ready to reveal its hand just yet. Writing on the PlayStation Blog, put upon SCEE staffer Fred Dutton explained that the organisation's still finalising some last minute details. "Sorry to keep you waiting,...

Knight fever

Yacht Club Games' critically acclaimed side-scroller Shovel Knight will tunnel to the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and Vita from 21st April in North America.

These Hyperdimension Neptunia VII PS4s Are an Otaku's Dream

Noire way

There are no shortage of custom PlayStation 4 bundles in Japan, but that's not stopping Sony from preparing another trio of personalised platforms in order to tie in to the forthcoming Hyperdimension Neptunia VII. Due out on 23rd April in the Land of the Rising Sun, the Purple, Noire, and Goddess options will cost ¥41,980 ($352) apiece,...

Not Quite Sure What Final Fantasy Type-0 HD Is? This New Trailer Will Help You Out

Take notes, class

Final Fantasy Type-0 HD is a bit of a weird one. It's certainly not a traditional Final Fantasy game; it's got a rather dark tone, and it features action based combat. As such, you may be wondering just what the title's all about, but thankfully, publisher Square Enix has the answers. The trailer that we've embedded, which spans...
