E3 2016: Sony May Have Pulled Its Big E3 2016 Conference Closer

Sony May Have Pulled Its Big E3 2016 Conference Closer

But what was it?

While Sony's E3 2016 press conference was stacked with untold riches of first-party titles, we did think that it was odd how the platform holder practically opened with Days Gone – and then closed with it as well. This has led to some speculation that the organisation changed its schedule, and while it's possible that the...

E3 2016: Final Fantasy XV Will Apparently Appear at Microsoft's Press Conference

Final Fantasy XV Will Apparently Appear at Microsoft's Press Conference

Noct like this

For obvious reasons, we won't be covering Microsoft's imminent E3 2016 press conference, but it's worth pointing out that Final Fantasy XV will apparently be there. If you've been keeping up over the past couple of days, you'll know that the American company's presser has been leaking like crazy, so this rumour at least seems...

E3 2016: Is Grow Up the Sequel to Grow Home?

Is Grow Up the Sequel to Grow Home?

A new leaf?

The European games ratings board, PEGI, may have inadvertently stolen a little of Ubisoft's thunder. A page on its website currently lists a rating for a new game, entitled Grow Up. It sounds to us like a sequel to the cutesy, 3D platformer Grow Home, with PEGI's rating of 3"" backing this up somewhat. Another interesting tidbit is...

E3 2016: Wolfenstein: The New Colossus May Be the Next Title from Machine Games

Wolfenstein: The New Colossus May Be the Next Title from Machine Games

Shadow of the Colossus

A dismal Bethesda press conference concluded without any mention of the rumoured Wolfenstein 2 – or did it? Eagle-eyed fans spotted reference to The New Colossus in the media briefing's inspired DOS opening, with its release date blanked out. It's safe to assume that this is what Machine Games is working on – even though...

Could There Be an Even Greater Crash Bandicoot Troll on the Cards?

Worse than Shawn Layden's shirt

Not like this – please, not like this! While your humble host was warring with faulty pre-E3 2016 hardware, a Singapore-based retailer named Qisahn has been busy listing a PlayStation 4 exclusive version of Skylanders: Imaginators – which will supposedly include Crash Bandicoot. As the Kaiser Chiefs once sang,...

There's Mounting Speculation That Knack's Coming Back

Cerny not?

Knack, the much maligned PlayStation 4 launch title, appears to be on the verge of a comeback. A Taiwanese animator listed the title on her resume earlier in the year, and now "renowned" industry "insider" Shinobi602 has been teasing the title on NeoGAF. It's not the strongest source that we've ever based a story upon, but the

News: Bethesda to Bring Prey 2, The Evil Within 2, and Wolfenstein 2 to E3 2016

Bethesda to Bring Prey 2, The Evil Within 2, and Wolfenstein 2 to E3 2016

2 much

Bethesda's press conference at E3 2015 seemed like a fancy way of announcing Fallout 4, so we were taken aback when it revealed that it would be repeating the song and dance this year. But apparently it's got plenty to show, with rumours swirling that in addition to a remastered version of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, it's also going to...

Rumour: The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Is Being Remastered for PS4

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Is Being Remastered for PS4

Perhaps it'll work this time?

Sharpen up your Fus Ro Dah chops, because Bethesda is apparently remastering The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim for the PlayStation 4. The legendary role-playing game – which sold approximately a bajillion copies on last-gen platforms – will apparently ship with mods, all of the original's expansion packs, and improved...

Rumour: Dead Rising 4 Leaks, But May Be Skipping PS4

Dead Rising 4 Leaks, But May Be Skipping PS4

West's best

Dead Rising's never really felt like a PlayStation franchise. The original launched too early for the PlayStation 3, despite it getting "ported" to the Nintendo Wii. Dead Rising 2 and spin-off Off the Record did hit Sony's system, but the game's prequel episodes were exclusive to the Xbox 360. And then, of course, Dead Rising 3...

Rumour: Titanfall 2 Will Rope in PS4 Players with Grappling Hook, Bigger Maps

Titanfall 2 Will Rope in PS4 Players with Grappling Hook, Bigger Maps

Due out in October, apparently

Remember, a few years ago, when bow and arrows started popping up in tons of different games? Well, this year's equivalent appears to be the grappling hook. Not content with putting in an appearance in Uncharted 4: A Thief's End, it seems like the mechanic will be added to Titanfall 2. That's according to a Reddit...

Siren: Blood Curse May Be Sightjacking PS4

Hanuda horror

Japan Studio's wacky PlayStation 3 survival horror Siren: Blood Curse may be sightjacking the PlayStation 4 in the near future. The title popped up on the Korean Ratings Board overnight under its Western name – it was dubbed Siren: New Translation in its native Japan and Asia – indicating that some kind of remaster may very well...

Rumour: Resident Evil 7 to Return to Horror Roots on PS4

Resident Evil 7 to Return to Horror Roots on PS4

P.T. designer promisingly on board

Capcom is apparently preparing for a "full-scale offensive" with regards to the Resident Evil franchise towards the back-half of this year, and now respected video game consultancy gaffer Serkan Toto has shed a little light on what we can expect. Writing on Twitter, the Kantan Games chief said that the "entire...

News: Is PS4K Scheduled to Launch Before October?

Is PS4K Scheduled to Launch Before October?

For the upgraders

The PlayStation 4K, or Neo as it's supposedly codenamed, is not a rumour anymore; Sony may have refrained from commenting on the upgraded hardware, but it's almost certainly happening. The big question is: when? Previous rumours pegged the supercharged platform for October, which is when PlayStation VR is also set to deploy.

Rumour: Cancelled Open World Sci-Fi Title Prey 2 Could Be Revived at E3 2016

Cancelled Open World Sci-Fi Title Prey 2 Could Be Revived at E3 2016

Close encounters

Those of you with good memories may remember a game called Prey 2, which was announced for the PlayStation 3 back in 2011. A sequel to the original Prey - a first-person sci-fi shooter - Prey 2 was supposedly going to be a pretty big deal; an open world action game in which you played as a bounty hunter, tracking down aliens and...

Rumour: The Witcher 3: Blood and Wine Has Uncovered Yet Another Release Date

The Witcher 3: Blood and Wine Has Uncovered Yet Another Release Date

It's probably right, this time

How many times has The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt's second expansion had its release date leaked? By our count, it's happened three times now, and it's been a different date every time. However, this latest rumour has some solid information behind it courtesy of Wario64, who spotted the launch date on the downloadable...
