  • News God of War PS4 Pro Lets You Pick Between Resolution or Performance

    The choice is yours

    God of War’s guaranteed to look stunning on the standard PlayStation 4, but if you do happen to have a PS4 Pro – or you’re picking up that spiffing new limited edition – then you will have some options to choose how you want to play it. There’ll be a 4K option, of course, which will checkerboard to 2160p as previously...

  • News PS4's TV and Video Interface Revamped in the United States

    Deal with it

    Sony’s rolled out the revised TV & Video section for the PlayStation 4 in the United States, bringing it up to speed with the European version.

  • News Jurassic World Evolution Stomps to PS4 in June

    Retail release roaring into stores later

    Frontier’s dinosaur-themed park building sim Jurassic World Evolution will make your glass of water ripple from 12th June on the PlayStation 4 – but only digitally to begin with.

    Review MLB The Show 18

    Home run

    Sony San Diego doesn’t always get the credit that it deserves for MLB The Show, with the franchise routinely overlooked by PlayStation fans as forum list wars focus on the heavy hitters like God of War and The Last of Us: Part II. But the developer’s quietly created one of the best sports series available on any platform, and while this...

  • Hands On WipEout PSVR Will Absolutely Melt Your Mind

    Free patch is a game changer

  • Movie Review Tomb Raider (2018) - Dumb But Fun

    Croft aloft

    Well, it could have been worse – just ask Angelina Jolie.

    Review Batman: The Enemy Within - Episode Five: Same Stitch

    Joke's on you

    Telltale’s take on the Batman universe has been one of the few shining lights in its portfolio of late, and The Enemy Within has successfully eschewed the sophomore slump with another sterling five episode series that turns everything you know about the Dark Knight on its pointy-eared head. This finale is far from perfect, but...

    Review Pure Farming 2018

    Corny

    The mainstream success of the farming genre may be attributed directly to a certain YouTube video showing tractors breakdancing to dubstep, but agricultural adventures are big business these days.

  • Store Update 27th March 2018 (Europe)

    Prepare to cry

    Record scratch! Yes, it’s another big week on the European PlayStation Store. Perhaps we should give up writing this sentence every single time, and only reserve it for when there are, like, 50 new games. Which, the way the PS Store is going, can’t be too far away. Anyway, highlights this time include Far Cry 5 and Tempest 4,000...

    Review Batman: The Enemy Within - Episode Four: What Ails You

    Ail be back

    It’s testament to Telltale’s work within the Batman universe that we didn’t even realise Episode 4: What Ails You does away with the cape and cowl almost entirely. That’s right, for the majority of Season Two’s penultimate instalment, you’ll be blitzing it as billionaire playboy, Bruce Wayne. Clocking in at around an hour,...
