    Double dose

    SUPERHOT VR was announced for PlayStation VR this week, which is all very exciting for owners of the virtual reality headset – but what of its television-based brethren? Well, the good news is that both versions of the title will arrive on Sony’s system in a “few short weeks”. The wording on the PlayStation B

    Games media, we understand it’s been a long week, but please engage your brains: the Days Gone release date hasn’t leaked, otherwise Sony would have said it on stage during its press conference this week. You know this, we know this, so quit trying to deceive your readers by capitalising on what’s clearly a mistake...

    Jim Ryan on solidifying Sony's fortress

    It sometimes gets lost in the predominantly United States-based gaming media just how dominant Sony is in Europe. For example, when the Xbox 360 was at its peak, the Japanese giant was actually clipping at its heels with the PlayStation 3, and that was partly led by the performance of the platform across...

    One of the more bemusing announcements of E3 2017: The Crew 2 has boats now – and planes. As strong believers that Jet Moto deserves a reboot, this actually interests us – but how the feck does it all work? Simple, really – it adopts a triathlon format, flinging you from one discipline to the next in an attempt to hold...

    Platform holder drops neat new ad

    Have you noticed how Sony’s actually started talking about the PlayStation 4 Pro like it’s not embarrassed about it anymore? Last year’s reveal event was weird, where the platform holder almost played down the very real advantages of the platform – and it hasn’t really said a whole lot about it in the...

    This is probably the most obvious announcement of E3 2017, but Spider-Man will be able to unlock different outfits in the new PlayStation 4 game. Insomniac Games hasn’t detailed exactly how you’ll get these – it’s probably safe to suggest that at least one will be available as a pre-order bonus – or what design they’ll adopt. We...

    Sometimes the simplest ideas for PlayStation VR are the best ones, and Tiny Trax really looks like a smart implementation of the technology. The game essentially builds a slot car track around you, so you need to follow your car by physically looking around the track, but as developer FuturLab points out, it’s not going to cause...
