Feature: Why You Should Try The Last of Us Remastered's Multiplayer Mode on PS4

Why You Should Try The Last of Us Remastered's Multiplayer Mode on PS4

Endure and survive

Naughty Dog’s not half bad at multiplayer modes. When it was announced that Uncharted 2: Among Thieves would be entering the competitive arena, there was outrage among fans of the original outing – after all, this was a series that prided itself on its plot rather than its gunplay. However, the title’s acrobatic action...

That Rainbow PS4 Raised a Truckload of Money for Charity

Heartwarming hardware

You may remember a story that we ran a few days ago about a decidedly colourful PlayStation 4 with an important message. Dubbed the 'GayStation 4', this colourful custom SKU was constructed to coincide with the Stockholm Pride festival, and was planned to be auctioned off in order to raise money for Swedish charity RFSL. Well,...

UK Sales Charts: The Last of Us Remastered Stumbles Upon Fifth Biggest Launch of the Year

All of that foraging paid off

Naughty Dog’s hard work porting re-release The Last of Us Remastered to the PlayStation 4 wasn’t for nothing, as the next-gen escapade has attained the fifth biggest launch of the year in the UK – an impressive feat considering that 90 per cent of the nation’s living it up in Alicante right now. It also secured...

Review: The Last of Us Remastered (PlayStation 4)

The Last of Us Remastered (PlayStation 4)

About a girl

Success comes with scepticism. From the second that first-party outfit Naughty Dog’s survival horror experiment The Last of Us was compared favourably to cinematic masterpiece Citizen Kane, the release was always going to have to convince a jaded jury of cynics that it was worthy of such watershed acclaim. Its legacy will probably...

Call of Duty company adopts veterans

The over publicised exodus at Naughty Dog is showing no signs of slowing, as two studio strays have found a new home at Call of Duty: Ghosts developer Infinity Ward.

Plenty of PS4 Discounts Coming to Europe Next Week

More than 25 titles getting reduced

In truth, the first round of the European PlayStation Store’s highly publicised Summer Sale is somewhat disappointing. Yes, there are a few deals worthy of note, but the whole promotion is bloated with games that have been discounted dozens of times before. Don’t lose hope just yet, though, as a bunch of...

Will the PS4 Get a Price Cut Any Time Soon?

Probably not just yet

As we know, the PlayStation 4 is selling extraordinarily well – but things are even more positive for Sony behind closed doors. Last year, the platform holder noted that it had designed its next-gen device to be much more price competitive than the PlayStation 3, and it sounds like it’s feeling the fruits of that labour...

PlayStation Hardware Sales Leave Xbox in the Dust

PS4 reverses firm's fortunes

It’s no real secret that the PlayStation 4 is a runaway success, and that’s been reflected by Sony’s latest hardware sales figures.

EA Access Exclusive to Xbox One as It Doesn't Represent 'Good Value' for PS4 Owners

Sony comes out swinging

We don’t think that Sony and EA Games are on the best of terms. After the latter promised an unprecedented partnership with Microsoft for the launch of the Xbox One, we’ve always got a sense that relations are a little, well, strained. And a statement from the platform holder regarding the mega publisher’s new Xbox...

The Last of Us Originally Had an Epilogue That You'll Never Get to See

Parting number

The audience at the incredibly self-indulgent – but dare we say deserved – The Last of Us: One Night Live stage show were treated to an extra special scene last night that didn’t even make it into the online stream. The epilogue – which was written by creative director Neil Druckmann – ultimately got cut from the game, but...

More pre-order bonuses than you can imagine

LittleBigPlanet 3 was arguably the biggest shock of E3 2014, and now it has a release date. As previously alluded, the sequel will start sticking, er, stickers on your PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 from 18th November in North America. There’s no word on a European date at the time of typing, but expect...
