Talking Point: Would You Pay for an EA Access Subscription on PS4?

Would You Pay for an EA Access Subscription on PS4?

In the game

Whether you like it or not, gaming is gradually becoming much more service driven. The wheels have been in motion for a while, with Season Passes and long-tail downloadable content business models designed to keep you spending more on a single game for longer. However, the announcement of EA Access overnight – a PlayStation...

More People Participated in the Destiny Beta Than You Can Possibly Imagine

Intergalactic anticipation

Bungie made it incredibly easy to participate in the Destiny beta, suggesting that it was perhaps as much a marketing tool as it was a server stress test. A single pre-order netted you three codes to share with friends, while the whole thing opened up to everybody towards the end. Still, if you’re asking people to...

EA Access Exclusive to Xbox One as It Doesn't Represent 'Good Value' for PS4 Owners

Sony comes out swinging

We don’t think that Sony and EA Games are on the best of terms. After the latter promised an unprecedented partnership with Microsoft for the launch of the Xbox One, we’ve always got a sense that relations are a little, well, strained. And a statement from the platform holder regarding the mega publisher’s new Xbox...

Switched Systems? Transfer Your Diablo III Progress from 360 to PS4

Ultimate evil

There’s a bit of a ruthless streak about Sony at the minute. The manufacturer appears to realise that it’s converted ex-Xbox 360 owners to its next-gen machine, and so it’s offering a variety of sweeteners in order to aid that transition. The latest of these is the promise that you’ll be able to bring your progress from Diablo...

The Last of Us Originally Had an Epilogue That You'll Never Get to See

Parting number

The audience at the incredibly self-indulgent – but dare we say deserved – The Last of Us: One Night Live stage show were treated to an extra special scene last night that didn’t even make it into the online stream. The epilogue – which was written by creative director Neil Druckmann – ultimately got cut from the game, but...

29th July 2014 (North America)

After all we've been through

It perhaps won’t surprise you to learn that The Last of Us Remastered represents the biggest addition to the PlayStation Store this week. The title’s launching alongside a list of multiplayer add-ons longer than heroine Ellie’s entire body, so get ready to spend a little extra if you like cosmetic competitive...

LittleBigPlanet 3 Embellishes Your PS4 with Bumper Stickers from 18th November

More pre-order bonuses than you can imagine

LittleBigPlanet 3 was arguably the biggest shock of E3 2014, and now it has a release date. As previously alluded, the sequel will start sticking, er, stickers on your PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 from 18th November in North America. There’s no word on a European date at the time of typing, but expect...

PS4's SHAREfactory Pumps Out Free The Last of Us Content This Week

Capture the chaos

Earlier in the year, we hypothesised that SHAREfactory – the PlayStation 4’s onboard video editing suite – could become a bit of a cash cow for Sony; instead, the platform holder’s been updating it for free. And another major overhaul is due out this week in order to celebrate the release of The Last of Us Remastered,...

The Cast of The Last of Us Look Back on a Crazy Year

The final countdown

The Last of Us has quickly become one of the most important properties on PlayStation, with arguably only Gran Turismo ahead of it in the exclusives pecking order. As such, it’s no surprise to see Sony rent out an uber-expensive hotel room in order to give award-winning actors Troy Baker and Ashley Johnson an opportunity to...

Review: Rogue Legacy (PlayStation 4)

Rogue Legacy (PlayStation 4)

Castle smashers

There are plenty of brutal indies that'll put your dexterity to the test on Sony platforms. The likes of Spelunky and Cloudberry Kingdom represent a somewhat niche, but addictive genre. However, Rogue Legacy, a title that blends platforming and simple combat with role-playing mechanics, is perhaps one of the most inspired that we've...
