News: So, Looks Like Sony's Already Working on the PS5

So, Looks Like Sony's Already Working on the PS5

A whole new world

While the PlayStation 4 is likely to be around for many years yet, we'd expect Sony to be starting to think about the future right about now. It's already set out its stall with the likes of PlayStation Now, but with Internet infrastructure not quite up to speed, we suspect that there'll be at least one more traditional console...

News: No, This Is Not Proof of Crash Bandicoot PS4

No, This Is Not Proof of Crash Bandicoot PS4

We wished it was

This time every year the Internet goes stir crazy over rumours that make very little logical sense. We saw glimpses of that earlier in the week with Shenmue, but this Crash Bandicoot image is even worse. Once again, it revolves around a fuzzy photograph of a projector screen featuring everyone's favourite Converse-wearing rodent...

News: No, Shenmue III Ain't Looking for Sailors on PS4

No, Shenmue III Ain't Looking for Sailors on PS4

Don't you know fakes are way uncool?

Remember the day the snow turned to rain? Yeah, sounds like a tall tale to us – a bit like this supposed Shenmue leak. The rumour appears to stem from a Japanese site, but has been picked up by some regional variants of IGN – and now we're here to tell you why it's more rubbish than Disc Four of the...

Rumour: The Next Assassin's Creed on PS4 Will Sport a Brother and Sister Protagonist Combo

The Next Assassin's Creed on PS4 Will Sport a Brother and Sister Protagonist Combo

Dual wielding

After all of the furore over Ubisoft's statements regarding female characters in Assassin's Creed Unity, it may appear as though the company is trying to smooth things over with Assassin's Creed Victory – otherwise known as Assassin's Creed Syndicate – if the rumours are to be believed. According to Kotaku, sources have claimed...

Rumour: Fallout 4 to Make Its PS4 Premiere at E3 2015

Fallout 4 to Make Its PS4 Premiere at E3 2015

It's happening

With Bethesda holding its own E3 press conference this year, that can surely only mean one thing, right? The Internet's been riddled with rumours and speculation regarding Fallout 4 for what feels like an eternity, but we've heard nothing concrete for years – until now. Luis Nieves is a freelance 3D artist, and according to his...

Rumour: Dishonored: Definitive Edition Sneaks Up on PS4

Dishonored: Definitive Edition Sneaks Up on PS4

Arkane magic

Arkane Studios' stealth-'em-up Dishonored was an outstanding game, but we could probably do without a PlayStation 4 remaster. Still, we suppose that Bethesda was never going to be able to resist the re-release money sitting on the table, and so a Brazilian ratings board has seemingly leaked an updated edition of the Dunwall...

News: Those MediEvil PS4 Rumours Have Risen from Their Grave

Those MediEvil PS4 Rumours Have Risen from Their Grave

Boned

For as long as this site has been online, there have been rumours regarding a hypothetical MediEvil sequel. Sir Dan Fortesque was a pretty popular character on the PSone, before he got bundled back into his coffin. Sony did allow the star to stretch his bony legs in PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, but a full comeback has always seemed...

Rumour: The Talos Principle Puzzles PS4 from 25th August

The Talos Principle Puzzles PS4 from 25th August

Thinking outside the box

The last thing that you'd expect to seep out of Serious Sam developer Croteam is a philosophical first-person puzzler, but The Talos Principle has generated a lot of buzz since its release on the PC in 2014. We already know, of course, that a PlayStation 4 version is in the pipeline – but now Amazon appears to have outed a...

Rumour: The Taken King Is Destiny's Big September DLC

The Taken King Is Destiny's Big September DLC

Return of the king

A while back now, it was rumoured that Destiny would be getting a larger expansion in September. The rumour started with a supposedly leaked image of the shooter's DLC plan, and now, eagle eyed NeoGAF user Kifimbo has spotted a trademark for 'The Taken King', which has appeared alongside what seems to be a logo. With the...

Rumour: Watch Dogs 2 Goes Walkies on Ubisoft Employee's CV

Watch Dogs 2 Goes Walkies on Ubisoft Employee's CV

Woof break

In the least surprising news ever, Watch Dogs 2 appears to have been let off its lease. Julien Risse, who worked on the previous instalment in the phone hacking series, has accidentally included the release on his Linked In profile. This is no surprise, of course, as Ubisoft has talked about the possibility of creating a sequel to the...

Rumour: Call of Duty: Black Ops III Will Skip PS3

Call of Duty: Black Ops III Will Skip PS3

First screenshots sneak out

The ageing PlayStation 3 may have just got another nail embedded into its coffin, as it sounds like Call of Duty: Black Ops III will be skipping last-gen systems, and focusing on the latest round of hardware, such as the PlayStation 4. An early article from Mashable – which includes the handful of screenshots embedded...

Rumour: Call of Duty: Black Ops III Blows PS4 Away from 6th November

Call of Duty: Black Ops III Blows PS4 Away from 6th November

Beta available for pre-orders

Call of Duty: Black Ops III will crash onto the PlayStation 4 from 6th November, assuming that a leaked GameSpot promotional display is accurate. The placeholder ESRB rating on the left-hand side of the case confirms that this is from the United States, so backwards dating conventions apply – yes, we thought that it...

Rumour: People Are Saying That Sony Will Promote Call of Duty: Black Ops III

People Are Saying That Sony Will Promote Call of Duty: Black Ops III

Back in black?

Welcome to the latest generation of games consoles – where co-marketing deals have taken the place of the third-party exclusives that don't exist anymore. When you stop and think about it, it's pretty moronic that platform holders are fighting over the rights to advertise games, but this is big business at the moment – just look...

Rumour: ITV and Channel 4 Streaming to UK PS4s

ITV and Channel 4 Streaming to UK PS4s

'Appy now?

Does anyone even watch television "live" anymore? Fair enough, sporting events are best enjoyed as they happen, but we can't remember the last time that we sat down at 19:00PM on the dot to catch the latest episode of Emmerdale – it's all about on-demand these days. It's frustrating, then, that the PlayStation 4 has been missing the...

Rumour: Guitar Hero Live Goes First-Person

Guitar Hero Live Goes First-Person

No, really

There's something funny about Call of Duty publisher Activision turning Guitar Hero Live – the next entry in the storied rhythm series – into a first-person rock-'em-up. However, a leaked report from Yahoo! France suggests that that's exactly what British studio Freestyle Games is about to reveal later today, as it attempts to put...
