News: A Very Happy Birthday to You, PlayStation 2

A Very Happy Birthday to You, PlayStation 2

The third place

Seeing as Sony ceased production on the PlayStation 2 a little while ago, we assumed that we were done celebrating the system's birthday, but what the heck – pour one out for the old guy. The black behemoth turns 15 today, if you take into account its 4th March, 2000 launch date in Japan. Those were certainly heady days, as not...

Sony brought an updated Project Morpheus to the Game Developers Conference this week, and it sounds like a vast improvement.

Metal Gear Solid V Will Get Its Own Themed PlayStation 4, and It's a Beauty 

Now in bionic arm red

Well, aside from editor Sammy Barker, who was reportedly sick in his mouth at the sight of it, we reckon that this themed PlayStation 4 is one of the best designs out there. Coinciding with the release of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, Asian territories can look forward to a multicoloured console which comes bundled with...

Sony: Free-to-Play Will Become a Big Chunk of Our Revenues in the Future

On the rise

For many, free-to-play is a dirty word – but not for Sony, who's seeing significant success from the controversial business model. Speaking as part of a panel at the Game Developers Conference overnight, SCEA employee Sarah Thompson – who's in charge of the platform holder's free-to-play business – said that the organisation's seen...

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...

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...

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...

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

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...

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,...

The best-selling home console of all time is apparently wanted due to high demand from consumers. As you'd expect, though, you...
