PS4's Final Fantasy VII Remake Sounds Like It Isn't Far into Development at All

"Please don't ask how far into development we are"

Right, so we reckon that if Final Fantasy XV comes out either late next year or early 2017, then Final Fantasy VII Remake will probably have to launch around 2020. Obviously we hope that we're exaggerating, but by the sounds of it, the game really isn't far into development at all. Speaking in...

Metal Gear Solid V's Best Trailer Yet Feels Like a Goodbye from Kojima

See you space cowboy

Not many games manage to roll absolute hype and saddening, sombre undertones into one amazing five minute trailer, but Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain's somehow managed it. Directed and edited by none other than Hideo Kojima himself, it almost feels like a goodbye from the visionary in numerous ways, and not just because...

25th August 2015 (Europe)

The motherload

Good grief, we don't think that European PlayStation Store updates get much bigger than this. There are no less than 15 new PlayStation 4 games out this week, and while they're not all as equally exciting, one can't argue with such an immensely impressive haul. We've rounded up all of the goods below, but do let us know what you'll be...

Dragon's Dogma Online's Launch Trailer Has Us Begging For a Western Release

Burned alive

"Damn you, Dragon's Dogma Online!" we cry as we drop to our knees, knowing full well that Capcom's aware of our plight, yet refuses to give us even a whiff of a Western release. The massively multiplayer online role-playing game finally launches in Japan in just a few days, so the publisher's rolled out a launch trailer to remind us...

Horizon: Zero Dawn Has the Best PS4 Clouds Since DriveClub

Silver lining

Forget about games like Crackdown 3 – this right here is the real power of the cloud. As part of a presentation at SIGGRAPH 2015, Dutch developer Guerrilla Games briefly touched upon the volumetric clouds that it'll be including in forthcoming PlayStation 4 exclusive Horizon: Zero Dawn. And while it all gets really technical and a...

Call of Duty: Black Ops III Embraces the Past As It Focuses on the Future

Lean, mean, cybernetic machine

With Call of Duty being the most successful multiplayer shooter franchise in video game history, you would think that betas would've been the norm by now. Instead, each instalment has had infamous issues. Annoying perks such as Juggernaut in Modern Warfare, overpowered weapons like the FAMAS and AK74u in Black Ops,...

Meet the Man with 40,000 PlayStation Trophies

Platinum unlocked

It's a warm yet rainy evening in New Hampshire, but Michael 'Roughdawg4' Sinclaire is uninterested in the weather. He's got a DualShock 3 controller in hand, and his gaze is fixed on a nearby television screen. White Knight Chronicles, the oft-forgotten PlayStation 3 collaboration between Japan Studio and Level-5, is the focus of...

Big boss

The sizzling summer months may be slowly edging towards a conclusion, but things are heating up in the video game release calendar.

Puck Off! NHL 16 Scores PS4 Bundle in Canada

As cold as ice

Ice hockey's a sport that's not particularly, er, popular here in the UK, but we know that our commonwealth cohorts are big fans of the ice-based action. Sony's probably pretty smart announcing a PlayStation 4 bundle for the forthcoming NHL 16, then, which will skate its way into Canadian stores from 15th September for $449.99. The...

Lara Croft Doesn't Have to Murder Everyone in Rise of the Tomb Raider

If looks could kill

Strengthening its similarities to The Last of Us, the forthcoming Rise of the Tomb Raider – which will deploy on the PlayStation 4 next year – can be played non-lethally. You may remember the Gamescom 2015 demo, which showed protagonist Lara Croft brutally eviscerating a slew of guards. Well, embedded below you'll find the...

PS Vita Prototype Looked a Lot Like the PSPgo

HDMI and SD card support, too

Sony's PlayStation Vita didn't take the gaming world by storm unfortunately, but at one point in time it may have stood a better chance. One of the poorest decisions by the bigwigs at Sony was the use of propriety memory cards instead of the much cheaper and readily available SD cards. It's a decision which has...

Rocket League May Be the Most Enjoyable E-Sport Ever

OMG! Wow! Nice shot

E-Sports can be a bit embarrassing, but Rocket League actually makes for an enjoyable spectator experience.
