Battlefield 4 Is Finally Getting Tuned Up on PS4

Let's hope this works

If you've been affected by Battlefield 4's rather unstable multiplayer on PlayStation 4, you'll be happy to know that a patch is marching your way to provide support. The update, which includes a number of stability and balance fixes, will hopefully put an end to some of the crippling bugs and glitches that have been plaguing...

Need for Speed: Rivals (PlayStation 4)

Cops 'n' racers

Need for Speed: Rivals rarely wants you to take your foot off the accelerator. Swedish upstart Ghost Games’ debut arcade racer fuses the fast-paced police chases popularised by Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit with the open world pandemonium of Need for Speed: Most Wanted, and serves up an emergent online experience that ensures that...

Battlefield 4's PS4 Problems Put DICE's Future Projects on Ice

Got to have Faith

You know that you’ve got it bad when you have to put all of your upcoming projects on hold because the one that you initially released last month doesn’t actually work. Battlefield 4 is a top-notch first-person shooter on the PlayStation 4, but it’s currently riddled with technical issues that are affecting the majority of...

PS4 UK Digital Prices Slashed Ever So Slightly by EA

Still extortionate, though

EA Games’ generosity knows no bounds. Following a backlash over the weekend regarding the eye-watering price points attached to the digital versions of its PlayStation 4 launch titles, the mega publisher has reduced the cost of its catalogue of next generation blockbusters by £3.00 ($4.85) apiece. Now purchasing the...

'Til it goes click

While narratives have never really been DICE's strong suit, Battlefield 4, the next entry in its popular series of shooters, at least takes things in the right direction. While Battlefield 3 delivered an incredibly boring campaign that bordered on dreadful at times, the new entry at least seems like it tried. The story is not...

UK Sales Charts: FIFA 14 Sprints to the Summit

Back of the net

Unsurprisingly, this week’s UK sales chart is dominated by a certain non-Sony next generation console. With the Xbox One launching in Britain last Friday, a large chunk of this week’s top titles were sold on the Microsoft manufactured machine. That includes FIFA 14, which shot straight to the top of the league after seeing a...

PS4's UK Digital Prices Will Stretch Your Wallet Pretty Wide

Shop around

The price of PlayStation 4 titles in the UK is a topic that hasn’t really been touched on a whole lot in the lead up to launch. We’ve avoided the subject largely because we expected things to settle down shortly before release, but it looks like that’s not going to be the case, and we’re going to be charged a hefty premium at...

You've Spent Too Much Time Playing PS4 Games Already

Take a break

Sony’s next generation console has only been out for a few days, but that hasn’t stopped you from logging an incredible 2.3 million hours of gameplay in various EA titles. Yesterday, an executive at the North American publisher pointed out that one-third of launch games purchased for the PlayStation 4 were developed by

Whoa, One Third of PS4 Games Sold Are Developed by EA

Slam dunk

We all know that the PlayStation 4 is selling like hotcakes, but a recent report from Electronic Arts' chief financial officer Blake J. Jorgensen reveals that the AAA publisher hasn't done too badly itself. "We had a great weekend of sales relative to the console that looks like the average consumer tie ratio is about three pieces of...

Battlefield 4 (PlayStation 3)

Boom! Shake, shake, shake the room

Almost every event that you're a part of in Battlefield 4 is punctuated by some sort of demolition or explosion. Pursued by a helicopter? It'll blow up sooner or later. Running up a flight of stairs? They probably won't be there on the way back down. Need to get past an armoured vehicle? Better blast it to bits...

Current Sales of Assassin's Creed IV and Battlefield 4 Are Dead in the Water

Next-gen may not be to blame

It should come as no surprise that the current-gen versions of Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag and Battlefield 4 are not selling as well as previous entries. After all, who wants to buy a game on an ageing console when they can wait a few weeks for the superior next-gen version? But a recent report from MCV reveals that...

Judging By These Comments, Titanfall Was Definitely Planned for PS4

Sad face

You’ve got to feel sorry for Vince Zampella. Having been roped into releasing neverending Call of Duty sequels at Infinity Ward, the luminary finally got a chance to do something different at new studio Respawn Entertainment. But now his company’s become subject to some shady behind-the-scenes business shenanigans instead. It seems...

Scraping the red barrel

The expiration of Battlefield 4’s next generation review embargo has revealed a few tasty morsels regarding the state of the PlayStation 4 today, but we figured that you may like to wash it all down with a brief glimpse at the next generation console’s user interface in action. The fine folks over at CVG have posted a...

World War III

Forget the conflict at the heart of Battlefield 4 – and the fact that the first-person shooter is almost certain to sell more copies on current generation formats – because it’s the comparisons between the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of DICE’s latest deployment that are destined to flare up tempers throughout the rest...

Battlefield 4's Story Trailer Punches a Dog in the Chops

Is that even allowed?

Featuring some stunning visuals, plenty of shouting, loads of explosions, and a large man punching a dog in the face, it's probably safe to say that Battlefield 4's newest trailer is going to be remembered for one thing. But let's not let that single talking point get in the way of an otherwise enjoyable video. While it's...

Tactical programmes in the works

Despite being one of the biggest multiplatform publishers on the planet, EA has aligned almost its entire next generation lineup with Microsoft. While the likes of Battlefield 4 and FIFA 14 will still launch on the PlayStation 4, the company has pledged timed exclusive DLC to the Xbox One. Meanwhile, other titles...
