Wait, There Are More Unannounced PS4 Titles Due This Year?

Sony certainly thinks so

Isn’t that just typical? We spend the best part of the afternoon penning an article on the PlayStation 4’s borderline bonkers November lineup, and then an additional unannounced title gets teased. Referenced in an MCV advertisement, which lists all of the retail releases due out on the next-gen machine this year, a...

Feature: No Games November - PS4's Lineup Is Starting to Look Silly

No Games November - PS4's Lineup Is Starting to Look Silly

Are you insane?

No new system launch would be complete without barbed comments about the quality of the box’s lineup. It’s something that both the PlayStation 3 and Vita have gone through, as well as rival formats such as the Nintendo Wii U and 3DS. We’ve always felt that the PlayStation 4 has been unfairly treated in this instance, as...

Grand Theft Auto V PS4 Hijacks the Next-Gen on 18th November

Los Santos looks even better

The best thing about Rockstar – aside from its award winning games – is the manner in which it goes about announcing them. While other publishers pre-empt reporters with Twitter teasers and cryptic press releases, the Grand Theft Auto V developer prefers to nonchalantly drop bombs – usually when we expect them...

Destiny's PS4 Launch Proves PSN Isn't Tied Together with String

Sony's servers survive

And breathe again. By penning this article we’re all too aware that we’re foreshadowing the kind of outage that would rival 2011’s widely publicised hack attack, but at the time of writing we can say with confidence that the PlayStation Network is fine. For websites such as this – the kind that break traffic records...

Sony: PS Vita's Remarkably Resilient, and Won't Fade Away

Just don't expect any more first-party blockbusters

It may seem like Sony’s placed the PlayStation Vita in a bag of rocks and tossed it in the Thames, but SCEUK boss Fergal Gara insists that that’s not the case. Despite the portable device failing to appear during the format holder’s E3 and Gamescom press conferences, the company insists...

European Fans Can Help Super Charge Dragon Ball: Xenoverse Next Month

Hands on

We're more excited than Yamacha when he gets screen time for the upcoming brawler Dragon Ball: Xenoverse, which is being released on the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 by Bandai Namco. When the title was first announced, spirits were high for the new Saiyan teased in the announcement trailer, which was revealed as a custom character...

Nolan North and Troy Baker Talk About Their Roles in Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor

And their 'rivalry'

Since Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor is shaping up to have such an engrossing story and world, we're stocking up on plenty of Lembas so it will sustain us in our inevitably long playing sessions starting in the next few weeks.

LittleBigPlanet PS Vita Recharges Its Powers with a Marvel Themed Re-Release

A Loki affair

Sony has recently announced a superhero themed re-release of the popular title LittleBigPlanet PS Vita, appropriately titled LittleBigPlanet PS Vita: Marvel Super Hero Edition. Aside from having a ludicrously long name, the game will be exactly the same as the charming adventure that you remember, but with a plethora of Marvel related...

You'll Be Getting Tons of Free DLC with PS4 Exclusive DriveClub

Tracks, cars, features

Ever since its announcement approximately 18 months ago, Evolution Studios has pitched DriveClub as an ever evolving package, rather than a traditional game. Now, less than four weeks away from release, the Runcorn-based developer has outlined the title’s post-launch content schedule – and it’s pretty impressive to see...

Wait, Resident Evil: Revelations 2 Is an Episodic PS4 Game?

Blood curse

Considering that the original Resident Evil: Revelations was divided into distinct episodes like a DVD box set, we suppose that it’s not especially surprising to see its PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 sequel adopt a similar structure – but we can’t help but be a teensy bit thrown off guard. Capcom has revealed that the survival...

Paul McCartney's Destiny Theme Song Flies without Wings

I am the Warlock

Destiny’s theme song has been written and composed by Paul McCartney, because, well, who else would have the star power required to represent Bungie’s next big thing in audio form? The track – which was recorded at the famous Abbey Road studio with a 120-piece ensemble, of course – has that soaring kind of sound that you’d...

You look like you've seen a Ghost

Destiny’s out so we can finally stop talking about it, right? Wrong.

What's Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare's Frontline of the Future Like on PS4?

Time to respawn

The Call of Duty series is perhaps one of the most popular yet widely criticised franchises in the modern era of gaming. Fans of the brand adore the game to its core, playing every iteration for countless hours on a quest to reach the maximum prestige; others feel quite opposed to the series and the impact that it has made on the...

Star power

If there’s one area where Destiny’s definitely not lacking, it’s in the budget department. You can literally feel the dollar bills bristling against your exposed skin when you sit through the first-person shooter’s opening cinematic; you can sense the dabbed brows and nervous boardroom exchanges as executives wrangle over the...

If you’re new to the PlayStation 4, or just returning to it due to the release of Destiny, you may have noticed that you’re being bombarded by party notifications from the people on your friends list. This feature was introduced in firmware update 1.70, and is particularly annoying if you’re trying to immerse...

Console maker ain't getting complacent

Everything’s looking rosy in the PlayStation Nation right now. Sony’s next-gen system is running away with the console crown, already surpassing 10 million units, with many more to come this Christmas, we suspect. Moreover, the lineup looks good, with a strong mix of first-party and third-party titles on...
