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 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?

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.

Harder, better, faster, stronger

In the back of our minds, we all knew that it would happen. It always does. Once again, we felt the PlayStation Network creak under the weight of thousands of users trying to access the digital store and download the Destiny Beta at roughly the same time.
