Hands On: Does PlayStation Now Stream Successfully to PC?

Does PlayStation Now Stream Successfully to PC?

Power of the cloud

PlayStation Now's been misinterpreted by many. The cloud-streaming solution – often incorrectly labelled as Sony's answer to backward compatibility – is clearly an initiative in its infancy; the service that's available today represents the building blocks of a much bigger ambition, where PlayStation hardware is replaced by...

Sony Sends Out Another Wave of PS4 Firmware 4.0 Beta Invites

Second time lucky

Potentially good news if you applied for the PlayStation 4 firmware 4.0 beta and didn't receive an invite, as Sony's sending out a second wave of emails. Maybe you'll get lucky this time around.

News: The PS4 Slim Looks Much, Much Nicer Than You Think It Does

The PS4 Slim Looks Much, Much Nicer Than You Think It Does

Short and sweet

One of the reasons Sony's so keen to shut down leaked images of the PlayStation 4 Slim is because, typically, the amateur snaps aren't especially flattering. Indeed, the platform holder's unannounced console has been deemed ugly from every corner of the web based on the handful of photos released, but it looks much nicer in the...

Opinion: Why the Heck Is Sony Making a PS4 Slim?

Why the Heck Is Sony Making a PS4 Slim?

The not-so little question

So, the PlayStation 4 Slim is real, and Digital Foundry made a video to prove it. Then lawyers got involved, and the hastily recorded clip got removed – you know how it goes. Still, this has all happened rather fast, hasn't it? If you'd have asked us on Sunday morning whether Sony would make a more compact PS4 console,...

News: Leaked PS4 Slim Console Confirmed to Be Legit

Leaked PS4 Slim Console Confirmed to Be Legit

Watch it powering up

We knew that last night's PlayStation 4 Slim leaks were legit – you don't get that many pictures from so many different angles without some level of authenticity. But as a few people have pointed out, in this age of 3D printers you can never be too careful. Digital Foundry decided to visit the person who purchased the...

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...

Rumour: PS4 Slim Hardware Images Allegedly Leak Online

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. In this age of 3D printers and elaborate hoaxes, these photographs of a console shell can't be taken as definitive proof – but they look pretty darn authentic from where we're...

DriveClub VR's New Tracks Will Be Added to Base Game for Free

A thank you to fans

There's been something unexpectedly sweet about the closure of Evolution Studios. Don't get us wrong, it's bitterly disappointing to see the developer shut down – but we're used to these kinds of stories ending badly. In the case of the Runcorn-based company, though, the team's been kept together by Codemasters, it's getting...

Mission Blog: Chapter 1 - Hello, Worlds

Chapter 1 - Hello, Worlds

Come fly with me

I don't like to draw much attention to No Man's Sky's technical problems, undeniably present though they are, but I did find it sort of hilarious that after my initial attempt to boot the game up saw it crash, it turned out you begin the game having crash landed. It was a graceless, unintentionally brilliant moment, the software...
