    Sony would need to find a developer, though

And it could still happen according to director Hidetaka Miyazaki – it's just unlikely that From Software will be at...

    Old-school

    This week saw the release of two PlayStation 2 titles on the PlayStation 4: The Warriors and Metal Slug Anthology.

  • News New Documentary Will Depict How PlayStation Conquered the World

    And you can help fund it

    PlayStation's big business these days, but that wasn't always the case. Back in the early 90s, electronics giant Sony was rather reluctant to create its own console – with its board of directors voting against Ken Kutaragi's proposal.

  • News No Man's Sky Is Finally, Finally Finished on PS4

    Space awaits

    The wait has been longer than an intergalactic tour of the universe, but No Man's Sky is finally finished on the PlayStation 4.

  • News PS4 Exclusive Alienation Loots Local Co-Op Patch

    Stronger together

    Alienation didn't set the world alight quite like Resogun before it, but in a year that's seen the release of several strong PlayStation 4 exclusives, it's one of the better ones. And now it's been updated as part of patch v1.03, bringing with it the local co-op support which was promised all the way back at launch. You'll be...

The proposed product was submitted by the PlayStation division, but it's unclear what it actually does. Kill us...

    And some in the West

    If you're a Japanese gamer who loves LittleBigPlanet, then you may want to start tapping down on your d-pad: Sony's shutting down the servers for all three of the main games, as well as LittleBigPlanet Karting, LittleBigPlanet Vita, and LittleBigPlanet Portable.
