Wait, The Last of Us Is Getting a One-Night Only Stage Show?

Guys and Joels

As we're sure that you've noticed, Sony's marketing machine has been working like a mad man for upcoming title The Last of Us Remastered. However, the company's latest effort has us slightly baffled. Dubbed The Last of Us: One Night Live, this exclusive event will bring the gritty and dystopian world of Naughty Dog's survival horror...

We’re nearing that time of the month yet again where attention begins to turn to the next batch of free PlayStation Plus titles set to enter the Instant Game Collection.

Failing to Consider The Last of Us 2 Would Be a Disservice to Fans

Naughty Dog exploring ideas for a sequel

The Last of Us is one of the biggest PlayStation exclusives of all time, with sales of the PlayStation 3 version currently sitting at seven million units. The next-gen re-release – due out next week – is likely to bump those numbers up considerably, putting the property on par with first-party juggernauts...

Sony Taints Vita Exclusive Oreshika: Tainted Bloodlines with Download Requirement

Tainted move

Just like fellow first-party release Freedom Wars, you’ll need a roomy PlayStation Vita memory card in order to play Oreshika: Tainted Bloodlines in Europe, as Sony has revealed that the title will only be available as a digital download in the region. There’s no word on a North American cartridge just yet, but seeing as the former...

PS4 Firmware Update Details Right Around the Corner

New system software on the way

While primary competitor Microsoft has been busy updating its next-gen machine on a monthly basis, Sony has been much slower with firmware updates for the PlayStation 4. One could argue that the Japanese giant’s system deployed in a much sturdier state than the Xbox One, but with the latter now getting 3D Blu-ray...

The Last of Us Remastered Will Gobble Up 50GB of Your PS4's Hard Drive

Spreading like spores

Californian developer Naughty Dog must have sprinkled some fairy dust on The Last of Us Remastered, because we’re not entirely sure how the first-party studio’s managed to fit the game on a single Blu-ray disc. The original title was already pushing the limits of Sony’s storage format, but now that it’s added in a bunch...

More multiplayer content on the way

The time to rejoice is near at hand, dear readers, as The Last of Us Remastered will soon be hitting store shelves. Not only will this allow us to finally get our hands on the next-gen port, it also means that we can stop writing articles about it. Hurrah. In the meantime, though, we have the unenviable task of...

Destiny's PS4 Beta, The Last of Us Remastered Details, and More

Change the record

With very little happening in the world of video games, you could be forgiven for labelling this week a little one note – but hey, we can only report on the things that are going on right now. And those things revolve around two titles: Destiny and The Last of Us Remastered. Yes, you’re sick of reading about them and we’re...

The PS4 Destiny Diaries - Day Three: The Crucible Presents Push Square vs. The World

We honestly weren't that bad

If there's anything that a modern game needs, it's a competitive multiplayer mode that's usually shoehorned into a single player title and treated like a second class component. Fortunately, Bungie is somewhat adept at crafting a solid online shooter, and it's clear that the studio's experience bleeds into Destiny's...

What if The Last of Us Originally Released on the PSone?

Do not underestimate the power of PlayStation

The Last of Us is just about as cutting edge as PlayStation 3 games come, but what if it had deployed 15 or so years ago on the PSone? Proving once again just how creative it can be when it puts its mind to it, the NeoGAF community has concocted a few mock-ups of what Naughty Dog’s survival horror opus...

The PS4 Destiny Diaries - Day Two: The Exploration of Old Russia

And not a stereotype in sight

For many, Destiny's biggest draw is its promise that you can explore huge, open areas with your buddies – or even complete strangers – as you scavenge the land for some lovely new loot. And I must admit, this is also the much hyped shooter's key component for me, as well. While I'm fairly confident that the story...

What do you get when you mix stealth, steampunk, and a sprinkling of high fantasy? Okay, so you probably get Dishonored or Thief. But now there's a new kid on the block, in the form of PlayStation 4 title Styx: Master of Shadows. Developer Cyanide Studio recently announced the project on the PlayStation Blog, and

The Unfinished Swan Feeling Its Way onto PS4 and Vita

Drawn to life

With most of Sony Santa Monica’s indie-inspired adventures already available on the PlayStation 4 and Vita, it’s only a matter of time before our 2012 Game of the Year winners The Unfinished Swan and Journey make the jump. Fascinatingly, the former may just be closer than you think, as Giant Sparrow’s beautiful first-person foray...
