  • Rumour Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite's Roster Readies Up

    Who's made the cut?

    Injustice 2 may be the king of the comic book brawler right now, but Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite will attempt to steal the crown from NetherRealm Studios later this year. And in-the-know NeoGAF user Ryce – who famously leaked the game in the first-place – has posted up the title’s 28 strong character roster to the message...

  • Rumour Bloodborne Developer Collaborating with Sony on Aztec RPG

    Or so the rumours say

    Have you heard the rumour about Phantom Wail? This is apparently the latest collaboration between Sony and From Software, ruling out a direct successor to Bloodborne. The story seems to originate from a Reddit post, but it references a “notorious” leaker who isn’t named, so already we’re in sketchy ter

  • News Is Monster Hunter Finally Coming to the PS4?

    Rumours say so, but are they accurate?

    Who doesn’t love a 4chan rumour? Despite the generally dreadful track record of the infamous message board, legit leaks do sometimes crop up on the site, so you can’t always disregard them outright. And this chatter about Monster Hunter 5 has been heating up of late, so we’re going to drop a quick piece...

  • News Gold PS4 Slim to Bring a Bit of Bling to Retail

    Always believe in your soul

    If you’re the kind of person who likes a bit of bling then this gold 1TB PlayStation 4 Slim may be right up your alley. This photograph appeared on Reddit earlier this evening and looks pretty darn legitimate from where we’re sitting, though there’s not much additional information to go along with the snap...

  • Rumour Sony May Have Scored FIFA Marketing Rights from Xbox

    Back of the net

    Football is fudging huge here in Europe, and do you know what else is massive on these shores? PlayStation. It always made sense for Microsoft to be marketing partners of the FIFA franchise, then, because between Champions League sponsorship and general dominance in Europe, soccer games are already associated with Sony’s system...

  • Rumour June 2017's PlayStation Plus Lineup Looks Very Strong

    Fingers crossed

    Rumour has it that the fantastic Life Is Strange and the underrated Killing Floor 2 will be the two free PlayStation 4 games with PlayStation Plus in June 2017. The speculation comes courtesy of PlayStation Turkey’s official Twitter account, and while we’d caution against getting too excited just yet, it’d be a very agreeable...

  • News A New PlayStation Vita? The Ridiculously Stupid E3 Rumours Have Begun

    God help us

    Dear oh dear, where to even begin? There are currently rumours floating around the 'net that suggest Sony is planning on unveiling a brand new portable console at E3 next month. Supposedly, this new device will go toe to toe with the Nintendo Switch, because yes, that's a totally logical market for Sony to pursue. Now, these kinds of...

  • Rumour God of War Maker Working on Major PlayStation VR Title

    Will apparently go down well with core fans

    Sony Santa Monica is a big, big studio, so while we’re sure that the bulk of its workforce is busy beavering away on God of War, it’s probably got a bit of manpower to spare. And according to a report on VRFocus, it may be leveraging those resources to cook up a little something new for Sony’s...

  • News Cliff Bleszinski's LawBreakers Seemingly Teased for PS4

    Fought the law

    Who’s heard of LawBreakers, then? No one? It’s the game that Gears of War maker Cliff Bleszinski’s been working on forever – a kind of free-to-play first-person shooter that’s had its lunch eaten by Overwatch like so many others of its ilk. But there’s news ahead: it may be coming to the PlayStation 4 at some point in the...

  • News Is Warner Bros Working on a Harry Potter RPG for PS4?

    You're a role-playing game, 'Arry

    There are two great mysteries in life: how the heck did Ron pull Hermione and why has no one made a Harry Potter role-playing game yet? Seriously, the wizarding world is ripe for RPG adaptation: you could create your own character, engage in quests around Hogwarts, participate in Quidditch matches, and explore...

  • Rumour New Red Dead Redemption 2 Screenshot Leaks

    Howdy partner

    Okay so it's not that interesting a picture, but this is Red Dead Redemption 2 we're talking about - we can't just ignore it, can we? The reasonably legit-looking snap surfaced over on GTAForums, and it's been making the rounds all afternoon. Given that we've seen next to nothing of Rockstar's sequel, it's no surprise to see fans...

  • Rumour Assassin's Creed Egypt Gets Its First Off-Screen Gameplay Snap

    Update: Several sources say it's real

    Well well well, what do we have here? Surfacing over on Reddit, this is supposedly our very first look at gameplay from the much rumoured Assassin's Creed Origins - or as it was previously known, Assassin's Creed Empire. The image above shows what certainly looks like an Assassin's Creed game, as a playable...

  • Rumour Far Cry Is Going Straight to the Wild, Wild West

    Last chance saloon

    If this rumour turns out to be true, then the entirety of Ubisoft will be praying to Clint Eastwood that Red Dead Redemption 2 gets delayed. The word on the street is that a new Far Cry game is due out in September, and it’ll apparently adopt a Spaghetti Western theme. Random? Not quite as random as the way this story started...

  • Rumour Egyptian Assassin's Creed to Feature Two Lead Heroes

    Mummy mia

    Has anyone else really missed Assassin’s Creed? The series took a year out in 2016, and it was the right decision for the fatiguing franchise – but as a big fan of the brand, this author kinda missed his annual open world fix. The good news is that a new instalment is on track for this year, and it’s rumoured to be set in Egypt...

  • Rumour Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered Scores Separate Launch

    Pass the Soap

    Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered will be untethered from Infinite Warfare this summer, assuming a listing on rental website GameFly is to be believed. The site currently has standalone versions of the revived first-person shooter listed on its website, with the PlayStation 4 version carrying a 20th June release date. That's a...

  • News This Isn't Your First Look at a PlayStation All-Stars Sequel

    Rubbish

    Whether or not PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale was a good game is up for debate, but should there ever be a successor, it would be fascinating to see what direction Sony took. There's been a bizarre amount of chatter about the series online of late, with a sequel supposedly leaking on 4Chan (hint: it was fake) and now artwork arriving on...

  • News Marvel: Spider-Man's Swinging to PS4 in 2017

    Our spider-sense is tingling

    With Sony already confirmed to be Destiny 2's marketing partner this fall, and Call of Duty: WWII, Star Wars Battlefront 2, and – fingers crossed – Red Dead Redemption 2 all expected to follow, this holiday's already looking pretty stacked for the PlayStation 4. But it wouldn't be the year of dreams without more:...

  • Rumour December PS Plus PS4 Games Leaked on PlayStation Store

    What do we have here?

    See the image that we've embedded above? That PlayStation Plus banner is sitting on the European PlayStation Store right now. It obviously has 'November Monthly Games' written on it, but neither of the games that are pictured were part of this month's line up, suggesting that these two titles will be heading December's...

  • News Marvel vs. Capcom 4 Rumour Keeps Up Its Combo, Supposedly Coming 2017

    And yes, it'll apparently be at PSX

    With the rumour mill in full swing, we've been hearing a lot of crazy whispers over the last week or so as we near Sony's PlayStation Experience 2016 event. One rumour that we decided was worth reporting on just a few days ago, Marvel vs. Capcom 4 will supposedly show up at the PlayStation maker's show - and now...

  • News Could Marvel vs. Capcom 4 Lift Attack PSX 2016?

    Clash of titans

    The rumour mill has officially entered overdrive ahead of PlayStation Experience 2016 next week, with the net outcome presumably being that there are going to be a lot of people let down next weekend. Marvel vs. Capcom 4 is the latest title to hit the likes of N4G, with a NeoGAF poster suggesting that an announcement may be made as...

  • Rumour Sam Drake to Star in Standalone Uncharted 4 Spin-Off

    A thief's beginning?

    Nathan Drake will cameo in one final adventure, but it's his brother Sam who will take the lead in Uncharted 4: A Thief's End's standalone story spin-off. The all-new adventure – which will apparently be announced at PSX 2016 next week – will allegedly launch early next year, and will see Drake "handing over the...

  • News Could PSN Name Changes Be Right Around the Corner?

    Changes are afoot behind-the-scenes

    It's by far the most requested feature on the PlayStation Network, but it looks like name changes could about to become a reality. Temper your expectations because this rumour stems from an Unreal Engine update, but it mentions that Sony has recommended all PlayStation Network accounts now be identified by their...

  • Rumour Diablo III May Be Getting a New Playable Character Class

    Back from the dead

    Diablo III, also known as The Game That Keeps on Giving, may be getting a brand new character class at some point. The speculation is based on a piece of concept art that's signed by Blizzard art director John Mueller, and features two necromancers raising the dead. The picture was found on one of the company's servers, and once...

  • News Eidos Montreal May Be Making the Next Tomb Raider Game

    What does that mean for Crystal Dynamics?

    Remember that Shadow of the Tomb Raider rumour we reported on earlier? The ever-reliable Jason Schreier of Kotaku has suggested that it's legit. But there's more: Eidos Montreal, perhaps best known for the recent Deus Ex releases, may be taking the reins of the franchise from Crystal Dynamics.

  • Rumour Is This Your First Look at Egyptian Assassin's Creed?

    Oh Mummy

    Assassin's Creed may be staying in the Animus longer than expected, but a first screenshot purported to be taken from the latest entry has apparently leaked online. It shows a pause menu alongside what appears to be a wireframe pyramid. The list of options shown on the toolbar include crafting, and a tooltip mentions that you can upgrade...

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

    Say goodbye to your exotics

    Looking at Destiny from the perspective of a big publisher like Activision and an ambitious studio like Bungie, Destiny 2's inevitable fate is perhaps easy to determine. If the franchise is to expand and thrive, it can't just keep relying on yearly expansions and, if you'll pardon the pun, sticking to its guns. With...

  • Rumour MLB The Show Developer Sony San Diego Shuttered?

    Caught out

    MLB The Show rarely gets much coverage on websites like ours, but it's a strong seller for Sony in the United States every year. However, reports are swirling that the studio may have been shut down. Not exactly the kind of news that will go down well at a time when the Japanese giant seems to be attracting waves of negative press. We...

  • News No, PS4 Pro Game Patches Won't Cost You Money

    Developer weighs in on latest rumour

    Right, so there's been a rumour spreading like crazy around the web that you'll actually have to pay for PlayStation 4 Pro updates. In other words, when a game gets a Pro update, supposedly increasing its graphical prowess or technical performance, you'll have to pay to download it. This rumour originally...

  • News 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. Almost as soon as the news got out, the 'net was awash in speculation, with many hoping and praying that Bethesda was going to allow another studio to have a crack at the Fallout franchise, much like Obsidian did with Fallout: New Vegas...

  • News 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. The platform holder didn't mention Blu-ray once during its press conference this evening, and now a slew of senior reporters in New York are claiming that the console won't support Ultra High-Definition...

  • Rumour PS4K Neo Launches This Week According to Report

    That was fast

    We're now a couple of days away from a Sony press conference, so that can only mean one thing: rumours, and lots of them. This latest whisper comes from the Financial Times via GameSpot, who report that the PlayStation 4K, codenamed Neo, may well release later this week. Wait, what? As many of you are no doubt aware, Sony is hosting...

  • Rumour Red Dead Redemption Is Being Remastered for PS4

    Legend of the West

    Hmmmmm, we're not quite sure what to make of this one. According to Korean publication Game Focus, PlayStation 3 masterpiece Red Dead Redemption is being remastered for the PlayStation 4. The site doesn't note a specific source, but claims that the rumour has been floating around since last month, with whispers from North...
