E3 2016: Jeepers! Spider-Man PS4's Trailer Was Gameplay

Jeepers! Spider-Man PS4's Trailer Was Gameplay

Amazing

With the announcement of Spider-Man for the PlayStation 4, we thought that we were looking at some kind of CG trailer. But no! Insomniac Games has confirmed that what you saw was PlayStation 4 gameplay – albeit with some scenes presumably captured from non-gameplay camera angles in order to give things a more cinematic feel. "I'm...

Kojima Didn't Really Have to Pitch PS4's Death Stranding to Sony

"Do what you have to do," platform holder said

Hideo Kojima has hinted in an interview with French website Gameblog that he didn't really have to pitch Death Stranding to Sony – and that the level of trust between the two partners is one of the reasons that he signed with the company for his first independent project. "Working with Sony afforded...

Lost Planet 3 Writers Penning God of War PS4's Story

Good news

We commented during Sony's E3 2016 press conference that the writing in God of War's spectacular PlayStation 4 revival seemed really strong, and now we know why: Rich Gaubert and Matt Sophos – the scripting double-act behind the surprisingly tenderly written Lost Planet 3 – are handling most of the story. Good news, then. While Lost...

Must Own PS4 Exclusive Ratchet & Clank Is £20 on the PlayStation Store

Time to go Lombax to the future

A quick break from all of the juicy E3 2016 news: Ratchet & Clank is currently £19.99 on the European PlayStation Store. We had a quick poke around and you can get a physical copy for a few pence cheaper off Amazon, but, y'know, you have to wait for them to deliver it and stuff. Plus you have to pay postage...

We Came So Close to Getting an Egyptian God of War

Oh, Mummy

God of War is back, and it's looking better than we ever could have imagined. Kratos has returned, but this time he's got a new set of Gods to deal with – all from Norse legend. "We are parsing it as the time in which the Vikings spoke of their Gods walking the Earth," creative director Cory Barlog told a panel at E3 2016, as reported...

Sony's Surprised Microsoft Announced Xbox Scorpio Over a Year Ahead of Time

Suggests that PS4K may release very soon after reveal

E3 2016: Gravity Rush 2 Looks Like the Best PS4 Game That Sony Ain't Talking About

Gravity Rush 2 Looks Like the Best PS4 Game That Sony Ain't Talking About

Meow

One area we always criticise with Sony is the fact that it doesn't always put its best foot forward. Gravity Rush 2 legitimately looks sensational, and yet it's not doing a great job of getting the title in front of console owners. Fortunately, IGN invited series creator Keiichiro Toyama to its E3 2016 live show, where it's shown a huge slice...

E3 2016: Sony Will Not Bifurcate the Market with PS4K

Sony Will Not Bifurcate the Market with PS4K

Not about creating haves and have-nots

Sony may not have shown the PlayStation 4K at E3 2016 this week, but its messaging has been razor sharp: the iterative console represents a step-forward for gamers looking for the best possible performance, but no one will get left behind. It's an option – and it will be sold concurrently alongside the...

God of War PS4's Set After God of War III

Not a total reboot, then

One question we had following God of War's amazing demo during Sony's E3 2016 press conference this week is whether it's a continuation of the events that have taken place in previous games – or if it's just a complete reboot, with Kratos pulled into a different mythology. According to creative director Cory Barlog,...
