  • News Bluepoint Games Tackles PS5 Speculation with Top Trolling

    Having a blast

    Bluepoint Games is making a “big game” for the PlayStation 5, which we expect to be Demon’s Souls Remake.

In order to celebrate Halloween, it’s composed a tweet which somehow manages to reference at...

  • Guide All Predicted PS5 Launch Games

    Every day one release we expect for PlayStation 5

    What will be the PS5’s launch lineup? While Sony’s shared some details about its next-gen device, it’s stopped short of revealing any software for the PlayStation 5 thus far.

  • News Sony Is Looking to Make Even More Studio Acquisitions Ahead of PS5

    Insomniac was just the start

    Studio acquisitions are all the rage nowadays.

It looks like that's just the beginning for the PlayStation brand, however, as...

  • Poll Should Sony Follow Xbox and Offer a PS5 Upgrade Option?

    Stepping up

    Current-gen console sales are slowing, as evidenced by the latest batch of NPD reports in the United States.

Microsoft, however, has an...

  • Poll Do You Still Want Ghost of Tsushima to Release on PS4?

    A feudal feud

    Ghost of Tsushima is the last major PlayStation 4 exclusive on the horizon – or is it?

Here’s what we...

  • Soapbox Why PS5's Reveal Event Will Rival E3 2015

    God level

    Nothing will ever top the Holy Trifecta™ – ever. That triple-punch of The Last Guardian, Final Fantasy VII Remake, and Shenmue III is the kind of thing that legends are made of; I’ll be telling my grandchildren about it, and I expect them to tell their grandchildren as well. E3 2015, as I wrote at the time, was the greatest gaming...

  • Random This Is What a Storm Could Look Like on PS5

    Bring the rain

    There’s nothing better than a big storm to add plenty of foreboding atmosphere to a scene. Batman: Arkham Knight, for example, was set in a perpetually rainy sandbox – it was depressing, but it suited the miserable mood of Rocksteady’s game. How good could thunder and lightning look on PlayStation 5, then? Real good if this...

  • Talking Point What if the PS5 Could Play Games from Every PlayStation Console?

    A pipedream?

    Here’s an outlandish idea: what if the PlayStation 5 could play games from every PlayStation console ever made – including the handhelds?
