Destiny 2 Shooting For a Fresh Audience, Will Be a Totally New Game

Bethesda Won't Comment on Fallout: New Orleans Rumours

Crawl out through the Fallout

Last month, we reported on a trademark for something called Fallout: New Orleans.

PS4 Pro Doesn't Appear to Have a 4K Blu-ray Player

4K off

In what may be the first bloody nose that Sony's sustained this generation, the PlayStation 4 Pro won't come with a 4K Blu-ray drive.

How Small Is the Rumoured PS4 Slim?

Size comparison

So, the PlayStation 4 Slim has leaked. Sony's yet to make a comment on these images just yet, but the sheer number of them taken from different angles suggests that they're almost certainly real – although nothing's legit until you hear it directly from the horse's mouth. That said, we have been in contact with someone who...

PS4 Slim Hardware Images Allegedly Leak Online

And they're very believable

There were rumours that Sony may announce a PlayStation 4 Slim alongside the upgraded Neo console, and it may just have leaked. Potentially.

LEGO Harry Potter Collection to Earn Five Points for PS4

You're a remaster, 'Arry

Assassin's Creed Ezio Collection isn't the only PlayStation 4 remaster to leak on a ratings board today: LEGO Harry Potter Collection was also listed for Sony's new-gen system in Brazil. Assuming that the nation's not totally drunk on Olympic fever, this unexpected package will presumably compile updated versions of LEGO...

Requiescat in Pace! Is Ezio's Assassin's Creed Trilogy Coming to PS4?

Italian stallion

Ubisoft's taken several stabs at a new Assassin's Creed protagonist over the years, but none of them have stuck like Ezio Auditore – his story ended years ago, but he's still fondly remembered by fans, after all. And it looks like, in the absence of a new entry in the historical series this year, the publisher's looking to bring...

Fallout: New Orleans Logo Trademarked

Could be a fake

With mod support still yet to come to Fallout 4's PS4 edition, a new game in the series is probably on the bottom of many people's wishlists.

Noctis again

Holy moly, there's a headline that we never expected to write again.

Lara Croft's Rise of the Tomb Raider Rushes PS4 on 11th October

And it may not be cheap

Ex-Xbox One exclusive Rise of the Tomb Raider will purportedly shimmy to the PlayStation 4 on 11th October, assuming that a product listing on the Italian arm of GameStop is accurate.
