PS4 Doesn't Support Oculus Rift Right Now, But It May Do in the Future

Smiles all around

Oculus Rift is the future – at least, that’s what we’re told.

Evolution Studios Shooting for 60FPS in PS4 Racer DriveClub

No promises, though

DriveClub has had a bit of a strange E3 2013.

And that may be for good reason – the Runcorn-based developer was telling attendees at the show that the demo on display was...

PS4 Price Advantage Will Prove Pivotal in the Battle Against Xbox One

Every little helps

While much of the next generation narrative has been pointed purposefully at digital rights management and used games, arguably the biggest discussion thus far has been left untouched like the awful pizza at a Chinese buffet.

Studio Japan Spent a Year Perfecting Puppeteer's Jump Mechanic

Practice makes perfect

Puppeteer is truly shaping up to be something of a dark horse.

Aveline's Story Will Continue in Assassin's Creed IV

But only on PlayStation

We’ll let you in on a secret: we don’t actually remember what happened at the end of Assassin’s Creed III: Liberation.

You'll Be Able to Replay Knack as a Vampire and More

Mark Cerny talks mascot characters

Knack’s unashamedly the most basic title announced for the PlayStation 4 – but that’s clearly by design.
