  • News Elite PS4 Controller Isn't Something Sony Is Interested In

    Cerny shuts down the possibility

    Ever since Microsoft unveiled the Xbox One Elite controller - essentially a more expensive, customisable Xbox pad aimed at invested users - PlayStation gamers have been wondering whether Sony intends to produce something similar for the PlayStation 4. We've always thought that it'd at least be nice to have the...

  • Video What Does the Nintendo Switch Mean for PlayStation?

    Changing things up

    Is the Nintendo Switch going to go up against the PlayStation 4, or is it attempting to carve out a niche all for itself? Does this really spell the end for the Vita – and potentially Sony's time in the handheld space? And are there any similarities between the House of Mario's new machine and the PlayStation maker's past...

  • News PS4 Pro Has More Memory Than the Base Model

    Level up

    Sony has revealed that the PlayStation 4 Pro has an additional gigabyte of memory compared to the existing unit. This bonus is not directly for use in games, but to help the console with application switching; currently that process is handled by the existing 8GB GDDR5 RAM included with the PS4, but now it can be offloaded to the extra...

  • Reaction Nintendo Switch Knocks the Final Nail in PS Vita's Coffin

    Game over

    The PlayStation Vita was already on its last legs, but Nintendo just delivered a swift upper-cut to its bloodied jaw.

    Because of course it does

    No open world game is complete without towers for you to climb, and Horizon: Zero Dawn is no different.

  • News PlayStation VR Shifted Over 50,000 Units at Launch in Japan


    PlayStation VR got off to a solid if unspectacular start in Japan, with the futuristic facemask shifting 51,644 units during its first week on sale.

  • News Halloween PlayStation Store Sale Is More Treat than Trick on PS4, PS3, Vita

    Bloodborne, Fallout 4, Until Dawn, and more

    Halloween's just around the corner, so it's no surprise that Sony's unveiled this year's spooky PlayStation Store sale.

    Review Here They Lie

    And here they’ll stay

    When Sony set out to launch its own virtual reality headset, one of the most important things that it had to do is make sure that it had lots of games released alongside it. Through the years, the games industry has seen many a peripheral fail miserably due to a lack of support. To combat this, an impressively large launch...

  • News Uncharted PS4 Remasters Are Releasing Separately at Retail in Spain

    Fair enough

    Earlier this month, Sony revealed that it'd be releasing the Uncharted PlayStation 4 remasters separately on the PlayStation Store in November. As it turns out, though, the trilogy of enhanced PlayStation 3 titles are actually heading to retail - in Spain, anyway. Each game will sell for €19.95, and you'll be able to pick them up...

  • Guide How to Fix Blurry Images in PlayStation VR

    Out of focus

    PlayStation VR's resolution isn't flawless, so you're always going to get some degree of blurriness when wearing the headset. However, if you're struggling to read text or even see what's going on around you, then you may need to make some adjustments in order to get a clearer, focused experience. Here are some things that you can try...

  • Feature PlayStation VR's Non-Games Include Dark Fairy Tales and Dancing Pop Stars

    Allumette! Invasion! Kismet! VRideo!

    PlayStation VR is a gaming platform first and foremost, but virtual reality is capable of so much more. Imagine a future where you're able to sit in the dugout alongside Jose Mourinho, as Manchester United lift the Champions League for a third time. Or perhaps where you're able to ride shotgun in Earth's first...

  • Video The Playroom VR's Robots Rescue Deserves Its Own Game

    Miyamoto would be proud

    Stop what you're doing, Japan Studio! Yes, delay The Last Guardian. Knack 2? Are you really making that? Okay, well cancel it – Robots Rescue, the terrific platformer in The Playroom VR, needs to be transformed into its own game. No, there's no time to waste – an indie team has already borrowed the idea, and started...

  • Video Following the Girl on the Train in Here They Lie on PS4

    Off the rails

    One of the genres that's undoubtedly going to shine in virtual reality is horror, and while Resident Evil 7 is still some way away, Sony did get a new game ready in time for launch. Here They Lie received barely any pre-release coverage, which has actually made it more intriguing in our eyes; we weren't sure what we were getting into...

    Review Super Stardust Ultra VR

    Super Starbust

    Super Stardust is becoming a bit of a new PlayStation hardware tradition.

But is the concept strong enough to...

  • Soapbox Summer Lesson Provides a Peek into the Future

    Awkward but essential

    I can't stop thinking about Summer Lesson. And before you start, this isn't a situation where I've had to go to bed wearing boxing gloves – I just mean that it's kind of amazing. While there isn't much "gameplay" to speak of here, it's clear that Bandai Namco has invested the bulk of its development budget into creating a...

  • News PS4 Slumps to Third Successive NPD Defeat

    Choppy waters

    Batten the hatches, spit in Shawn Layden's face, and curse Kaz Hirai's complacency: Sony failed to defeat the Xbox One in the September NPD, meaning that's three times in a row now that the PlayStation 4 has not been the best-selling system in the United States. We suppose after three straight years on top, it had to give everyone...

  • News PlayStation VR Can Be Used with Wii U, Xbox One, PC

    Well, kinda

    You can use PlayStation VR's spiffy Cinematic Mode to enjoy non-virtual reality PlayStation 4 games using your expensive new purchase – but did you know that it also works with a PC, Xbox One, or Wii U? The setup itself is simple: replace the HDMI cord coming out of your PS4 and into the Processing Unit with your console or computer...

  • News Sony Forecasting 'Hundreds of Thousands' of PlayStation VR Sales

    Platform holder increasing production capacity

    Sony's said that it expects to sell "hundreds of thousands" of PlayStation VR headsets at launch, which may make the company the de facto virtual reality market leader by the end of the day.

  • News Sony Launches New PS4 Area for PlayStation VR Experiences


    As we've already explained on various occasions, PlayStation VR is about much more than games. Alongside the launch of Sony's headset today, the platform holder has assembled a series of "experiences", which will help you to get more out of your virtual reality device. And it's added an icon to the PlayStation 4's interface in order to...

  • News Japan Lines Up for PlayStation VR Ahead of Launch

    As stocks start to sell out worldwide

    You can always judge the interest in a product in Japan by the size of its lines, and it looks like PlayStation VR has captured the attention of the tech enthusiasts in the East. The Wall Street Journal is reporting that many stores have been sold out of the headset since as early as June, with one man from...

  • News PS4 Pro Will Be Compatible with SATA 3 Hard Drives

    That's a SATA of fact

    Sony hasn't said much about the PlayStation 4 Pro since it was revealed, with much of its attention being focused on PlayStation VR over the past few weeks. But one thing it has clarified following an interview with Japanese website is that the new system will support SATA 3 hard drives, unlike its predecessor...

    RIGS? DriveClub? Batman!

    PlayStation VR has a gigantic launch lineup, and you're probably wondering which titles to buy right about now.

    Virtual revolution

    Republished on Wednesday, 12th October 2016: This review has been updated ahead of PlayStation VR's launch in order to include new information on Cinematic Mode, headphone compatibility, game reviews, and a general launch guide. At least I can say I have lived. Sony's award-winning 1999 commercial hinged on one simple,...

  • Video Unlock Your Inner-Alan Shearer with Headmaster on PS4

    Back of the net

    Alan Shearer knew how to head a football, and you can learn too if you play Headmaster for PlayStation VR. Much like Job Simulator, this game has a sharp sense of humour, essentially seeing you assume the role of a down-on-his-luck footballer who's been sent back to heading school after squandering some gilt-edged chances. It's a...

  • Video Racing Around the Bend in DriveClub VR on PS4

    Need for speed

    There can be few better fits for virtual reality than sitting inside the cockpit of a supercar and racing around scenic settings.

  • Video Does PlayStation VR Put the Ultra in Super Stardust?

    Making its (House)marque

    It's becoming tradition for a version of Super Stardust to launch alongside new Sony hardware, and PlayStation VR is no different. While Super Stardust Ultra VR is, for all intents and purposes, the same version of the game that released on the PlayStation 4 last year, it has been furnished with a new mode which sees you...

  • Video A Close Match in RIGS: Mechanized Combat League on PS4

    To the wire

    RIGS: Mechanized Combat League doesn't exactly bloom in single player, but we did manage to capture gameplay footage of a match that went to the wire while penning our review. This was a cup game, and was against a particularly tough opponent, so we reckon that our team – the Valkyries – held their own pretty well. In addition to...

    One day, the veterans of Evolution Studios will tell their great grandchildren the tale of DriveClub, and it'll make for entertaining listening.

  • Hands On Does PlayStation VR Really Have Tracking Issues?

    Dreaded drift

    In some ways, it's a shame that the PlayStation VR embargo had to lift. We'd encountered problems with the headset prior to this week's verdicts, which we outlined in our review: the resolution of the screen, the number of cables, and the flawed nature of the PlayStation Move controllers. But we hadn't encountered any tracking issues...

  • News PlayStation VR Will Play Host to More Than Just Games

    Sony outlines full roster of experiences, too

    PlayStation VR may be all about the games, but the reality is that virtual reality has a greater role to play than that.

    Y'know that feeling when you wake up in the morning and all of your troubles have melted away, only for them to come crashing back into your conscious like a nuclear bomb? Well, we just got a pang of that when we remembered that we've only reviewed four of PlayStation VR's launch titles – with another 25 or so to do. Ouch...

  • News PS4 Exclusive Gravity Rush 2 Tumbles into 2017

    Another one bites the dust

    Well, this is becoming an unfortunate reoccurrence, isn't it? There's not one game that Sony hasn't delayed this year, and Gravity Rush 2 is the latest to join the "pushed back" party. To be fair to the Japan Studio developed title, this very much appears to be a marketing move rather than a production problem – but...

    Topple the blocks

    Ah, humble Tumble – the underrated PlayStation Move title that really proved the power of Sony's motion wand.

You may just have...

    Review PlayStation VR Worlds

    A worldie?

    No new hardware launch is complete without a minigame collection; PlayStation VR Worlds, however, is not your average Wii Sports knock-off. Developed by Sony's own London Studio, this is a hodgepodge package collating the half-dozen or so tech demos that the studio has concocted over the years. As such, while the compilation includes some...

    Review Until Dawn: Rush of Blood

    Ghost train

    The camp thrills of Supermassive Games' interactive horror Until Dawn elevated it to a status that few expected; the deliciously dumb drama out-Quantic Dreamed the real Quantic Dream, and the silly scare-fest still very much sits among the very best experiences that the PlayStation 4 has to offer. Until Dawn: Rush of Blood, a virtual...

  • News Sony Exploring the Possibility of Free PlayStation VR Games on PlayStation Plus

    Nothing to share at this time, though

    There's no question that the past couple of months have been kind to PlayStation Plus, with the lineup in September and October really taking a step back towards the series' very best days. But still there's a recurring sentiment that the service needs an overhaul, with the PlayStation 3 and Vita games...

    It's an absolutely killer month on PlayStation Plus this October, with Sony responding to feedback by handing out free copies of Resident Evil and Transformers: Devastation on the PlayStation 4 alone.

  • News PlayStation VR Will Provide Some Headaches for People with HDR Displays

    Time to change your cables

    While we're technically under embargo, we can probably just about get away with saying that PlayStation VR's setup has some… Minor shortcomings.

  • News PS4 Firmware Update 4.01 Puts in a Surprise Appearance

    Stable stuff

    Sony's dropped a new PlayStation 4 firmware update this morning, which will bring added stability to your system.

Probably bug fixes and the...

  • News The Last Guardian Billboards Prove the End Is in Sight

    In a flap

    It's almost here. The wait for The Last Guardian has been torturous at times, but Fumito Ueda's magnum opus is finally upon us – and Sony has splashed out on a few billboards to remind everyone. Spotted somewhere in the States, the promotion shows a forlorn Trico peering at the robed protagonist from all of the marketing materials. A...
