Virtual Reality on PS4 Just Got Way Better with Project Morpheus' Latest Prototype

Sony overhauls its ambitious add-on

It's only been a year since Sony announced Project Morpheus, but at the time, we were impressed with the way that the Japanese giant muscled into the virtual reality space, seemingly nudging Oculus aside. Since then, the latter company has been acquired by Facebook, fierce competitor Microsoft has announced a...

What Are March 2015's Free PlayStation Plus Games?

New 'N' Tasty

After days of rumour, speculation, and Fred Dutton stalking, Sony has finally revealed March's roster of free PlayStation Plus games. If the drama leading up to the reveal wasn't riveting enough, there's plenty in the selection, too, as a borked European PlayStation Blog URL suggests that we were getting Dishonored originally. Either...

Review: Helldivers (PlayStation 4)

Helldivers (PlayStation 4)

Lead farming

Super Earth is expanding, and it's your job to do the dirty work. The Helldivers are called in to slaughter alien life forms so that mankind can extend its reach across the galaxy, and that means you're going to need a lot of big guns, air support, and explosives. A co-op shooter for up to four players, both locally and online,...

London Heist Is Project Morpheus' Answer to The Getaway

Gang wars

Project Morpheus may have nabbed a nifty new set of specs, but there are still concerns that the PlayStation 4 may not have enough under the hood to power it. Make no mistake, Sony's next-gen system is a technological beast – but virtual reality requires high resolutions and fast framerates to work properly, something that the console...

March's Free PlayStation Plus Games include Oddworld PS4, OlliOlli 2, and Valiant Hearts

Counter Spy, Sherlock Holmes, and more up for grabs

We've waited six long days for Sony to announce March's roster of PlayStation Plus freebies, so it was inevitable that the organisation would drop the lineup just as we were about to tuck into our hot dog and chips. Taking us away from our dinner this month are Oddworld: New 'N' Tasty and Valiant...

Helldivers PS4, PS3, PlayStation Vita Hints and Tips for Killing Alien Scum

Just dropping in

As we wrote in our review, Helldivers is a great downloadable game. Taking the fight to aliens across a multitude of different planets, there's little more satisfying than taking chunks out of big beasties with a barrage of bullets. Sadly, not everyone can adapt to the life of a Helldiver so easily. Starting out can be tough, even...

Bloodborne Begins the Hunt with Inviting PS4 Commercial

This game's going to cut you down

We all know that Bloodborne's going to be tougher than a reinforced ginger nut, but Sony's clearly banking on bringing in some more casual players with this TV spot. The clip includes foul beasts, a rambling narrator stuck in staccato mode, and some light rock to round things out. It's nice to see the firm actually...

The PS2 Rises from the Dead as Retailer Accepts Trade-Ins Once Again

The console that won't die

If you've been looking to sell off a dusty and possibly decrepit PlayStation 2, you may be in luck as GameStop is once again accepting trade-ins when it comes to Sony's last-last-gen console. The best-selling home console of all time is apparently wanted due to high demand from consumers. As you'd expect, though, you...

Soak up the sun

There are few games better suited to summer than Tearaway Unfolded.

Bloodborne's New Boss Will Cause You Grievous Bodily Harm

Bone crusher

No, that's not an Iron Maiden album cover – it's actually the latest boss to be revealed for PlayStation 4 exclusive Bloodborne. Imaginatively named the Darkbeast, the malformed monster consists mostly of electricity and bones. He also appears borderline impossible to beat. Par for the course for From Software's forthcoming release,...

PlayStation's Winning the Digital Games Revenue War

And by quite some margin, it seems

When looking at console sales, people often overlook the network impact. Indeed, we're so focused on hardware numbers that we tend to forget that every PlayStation 4 sold means a potential PlayStation Plus subscription and various PlayStation Network purchases as well. It would appear that Sony's quietly lapping...

Introducing the new white and gold DualShock 4

Those that have topped up their Tumblr knowledge of late will be aware of the dress debate that's taken social media by storm. For those out of the loop, an image showing a white and gold dress has prompted an online rift, as some argue that it's actually black and blue. We'v
