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...

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.

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.

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...

Delve into Dungeons and Watch Wildlife with New Final Fantasy XV Gameplay

The dark below

It's a bit unnerving how we're being flooded with Final Fantasy XV gameplay these days. After all, we've been waiting on concrete details about the game for years, and now, everything seems to be coming hurtling towards us at once. Not that we're complaining, mind. The newest footage comes from Square Enix's latest Active Time...

The End Is in Sight for Final Fantasy XV's Development

Believe

Well, we've been sat here for almost a decade waiting for Final Fantasy XV. With the game's playable demo launching next month alongside Final Fantasy Type-0 HD, we're actually starting to get a decent look at what the role-playing title will consist of, and the good news doesn't stop there.

We Talk Tactics with the Producer of Dynasty Warriors

Cultural differences, future crossovers, and the Western fanbase

Dynasty Warriors is one of those franchises that has an incredibly loyal Western fanbase, but will likely never replicate the success it enjoys in its native Japan overseas. As such, it's not often that we hear from the people behind the long running hack-and-slash series, but we've...

Actually, Helldivers Isn't One of Your Free PS Plus Games in March

Shot down

Contrary to popular, and largely logical, opinion, chaotic co-op shooter Helldivers won't actually be one of your free PlayStation Plus games next month. The downloadable title is slated for release on the 3rd and 4th of March in North America and Europe respectively, which understandably led to many believing that it would be available...

You'll Be Hungry for the Next Project from LittleBigPlanet Vita's Developer

Ravenous

There are more indie games than we know what to do with these days, but every now and then, a title jumps out from the crowd. Hunger, the latest project from LittleBigPlanet Vita developer Tarsier Studios, is one such title, as this teaser trailer is absolutely phenomenal. It's also not for the faint of heart, so take heed, scaredy-cats...
