Rumour: PS4 Slim Hardware Images Allegedly Leak Online

PS4 Slim Hardware Images Allegedly Leak Online

And they're very believable

There were rumours that Sony may announce a PlayStation 4 Slim alongside the upgraded Neo console, and it may just have leaked. Potentially. In this age of 3D printers and elaborate hoaxes, these photographs of a console shell can't be taken as definitive proof – but they look pretty darn authentic from where we're...

Real-Time Strategy Korix Commands a Spot on PlayStation VR

Shocked to the Korix

A lot of PlayStation VR's appeal comes from immersing yourself in a given experience, and Korix aims to transform you into a commander, with your role being to oversee an army as you attempt to take the fight to your enemies. A blend of real-time strategy and tower defence, this retro-inspired release will feature a 3-5 hour...

Big City Stories Lays Foundations on PS4 from Next Week

Another brick in the wall

Hellfire Games previously made a city-builder type minigame for PlayStation Home, so it's no surprise to see it adapt that work natively for the PlayStation 4. Big City Stories is a city-builder in the same vein as Sim City, with one big twist – once you've constructed your dream town, you can drop down into it and...

Gamescom 2016: Dragon Ball XenoVerse 2 Teams Up in New Trailer

Dragon Ball XenoVerse 2 Teams Up in New Trailer

Tag team

Oh no, a wild Dragon Ball XenoVerse 2 trailer has appeared – where's Ramsey when you need him? This clip appears to show off large scale battles, in which you'll work alongside spiky haired comrades in order to take down a greater foe. Like this, er, giant gorilla. Looks a bit Monster Hunter, maybe? The game's due out from 25th October...

DriveClub VR's New Tracks Will Be Added to Base Game for Free

A thank you to fans

There's been something unexpectedly sweet about the closure of Evolution Studios. Don't get us wrong, it's bitterly disappointing to see the developer shut down – but we're used to these kinds of stories ending badly. In the case of the Runcorn-based company, though, the team's been kept together by Codemasters, it's getting...

Mission Blog: Chapter 1 - Hello, Worlds

Chapter 1 - Hello, Worlds

Come fly with me

I don't like to draw much attention to No Man's Sky's technical problems, undeniably present though they are, but I did find it sort of hilarious that after my initial attempt to boot the game up saw it crash, it turned out you begin the game having crash landed. It was a graceless, unintentionally brilliant moment, the software...

Gamescom 2016: Prey on PS4 Will Mug You Off

Prey on PS4 Will Mug You Off

Coffee break

Bethesda's released a short snippet of sci-fi horror Prey's gameplay, demonstrating how you can assume the shape of well… Office mugs in order to navigate the alien infested space station Talos I. We're not entirely sure why the publisher's opting to demo this reboot in drips and drabs, but we do reckon that the BioShock-inspired...

The last weekend of Olympic action awaits, and we're warming ourselves up for a weekend spent… Scoffing snacks and watching others exert themselves on the television.

Has all of the Gamescom 2016 news left you lusting for something fresh to play? Sony's rolled out a surprise PlayStation Store Flash Sale in North America, which centres on the theme of "otherworldly" games.

Rise of the Tomb Raider PS4 Sounds Like the Definitive Version by Far

Croft aloft

We already know that Square Enix is going above and beyond with the PlayStation 4 version of Rise of the Tomb Raider, packing it with content to make up for the title's year long delay. But has it gone the extra mile in terms of performance, too? Digital Foundry has posted a quick preliminary investigation from the Gamescom 2016 show...

No Man's Sky PS4 Patch Busts Some Nasty Bugs

Procedurally generated errors

No Man's Sky is one of the fastest selling PlayStation 4 games to date, but it does have some serious technical issues – or, at least, it did. Hello Games has released a new patch – v1.04 for those keeping count – this week, which promises "improved stability and lots more". Not the most detailed patch notes...

PS4's Completely Crushing the Competition in Germany

Sony's got almost 70 per cent market share

As we've written so many times already, Sony's dominance this generation can't be attributed solely to favourable policies or press conference clangers – it's the legwork that it's invested into Europe over the years that's doing the business. New figures coming out of Germany show that the PlayStation...

Final Fantasy XV Ultimate Collector's Edition Doesn't Include the Season Pass

Wait what

There's something a bit dodgy going on here, isn't there? Final Fantasy XV's "Ultimate" Collector's Edition doesn't actually include the title's recently revealed season pass, Square Enix has confirmed. And yes, that's the season pass that we still don't actually know anything about, but you can purchase right now from the PlayStation...

LEGO Harry Potter Collection to Earn Five Points for PS4

You're a remaster, 'Arry

Assassin's Creed Ezio Collection isn't the only PlayStation 4 remaster to leak on a ratings board today: LEGO Harry Potter Collection was also listed for Sony's new-gen system in Brazil. Assuming that the nation's not totally drunk on Olympic fever, this unexpected package will presumably compile updated versions of LEGO...

AdVenture Capitalist May Be PS4's Most Annoyingly Addictive Game

Push square

It was only a matter of time before "clickers" started to infect the PlayStation 4, wasn't it? The popular genre – which is defined by its simple gameplay and constantly increasing numbers – is already a smash on computers and smartphones, and now AdVenture Capitalist is aiming to bring a little of the love to Sony's new-gen...

Gran Turismo Sport Dazzles with Pretty PS4 Screens

Nurburg bling

Gran Turismo Sport didn't have the best reveal, but it's been gradually improving with every showing, and it's looking dazzling at Gamescom 2016. To coincide with the convention, Sony's released some new screenshots showing off the simulation racer in all of its glory – and it's insanely pretty, as you'd probably expect. While...

Requiescat in Pace! Is Ezio's Assassin's Creed Trilogy Coming to PS4?

Italian stallion

Ubisoft's taken several stabs at a new Assassin's Creed protagonist over the years, but none of them have stuck like Ezio Auditore – his story ended years ago, but he's still fondly remembered by fans, after all. And it looks like, in the absence of a new entry in the historical series this year, the publisher's looking to bring...
