Talking Point: Should More Games Emulate PS4 Exclusive inFAMOUS: Second Son's Photo Mode?

Should More Games Emulate PS4 Exclusive inFAMOUS: Second Son's Photo Mode?

Say cheese

You could never accuse Seattle-based first-party studio Sucker Punch of not listening to its fans. Many berated the first entry in its superhero series inFAMOUS for the obnoxious personality of supporting star Zeke, and so it spent the entirety of the PlayStation 3 title’s sequel trying to redeem the character – a measure which...

Freedom Wars' English Story Trailer Will Leave You With a Raised Eyebrow

Living is a crime

If you didn't quite find yourself captivated by last week's 12 minutes of Japanese Freedom Wars gameplay, perhaps this three minute English trailer will do the trick. Thanks to the magic of subtitles, you can finally wrap your head around the handheld title's seemingly bonkers plot. Focusing on the release's cast of colourful...

Not Bought a PS4 Yet? This The Last of Us Remastered Bundle May Tempt You

Ellie of an entry point

While many have been swift to criticise the PlayStation 4’s first full year on the market, we reckon that Sony’s done an admirable job of beating the content drought and keeping a steady stream of software on store shelves. Only last month it collaborated closely with Ubisoft for the release of Watch Dogs, and it still...

PS4's First Gran Turismo Game Will Be Stuck at the Start Line for a Little While Yet

Off the mark

This editor’s gaming news engine has been stationary for a few days now, so what better way to remove the rust than with a cheeky post about Gran Turismo 7? It would appear that the industry’s still very much in first gear following the excitement of E3 2014 earlier in the month, but speaking with Eurogamer.net at the Goodwood...

PS4 Exclusive The Order: 1886 Features Nerve-Rackingly Realistic Werewolves

At the end of our lycnathrope

You may recall a particularly gruesome trailer for The Order: 1886 from this year's E3. The gory clip debuted during Sony's super slick press conference, and showed off the title's reimagining of 1800s London, complete with historically accurate werewolf infestation. Luckily for us, the Japanese giant has recently...

Does This New Project Morpheus Trailer Sell You On Sony's Virtual Reality Headset?

It's incredible, apparently

Sony's virtual reality headset Project Morpheus may be a nifty piece of tech, but its value is incredibly hard to demonstrate. After all, there's nothing particularly exciting about watching someone with a clunky set of goggles strapped to their face wildly waving their arms about. It's the sort of thing that

July's PS Plus Update Slashes with Strider and Teases with TowerFall Ascension on PS4

Dead Space 3, Vessel, and LEGO Batman 2 bring up the rear

Hold onto your hats, because July's PlayStation Plus update has been officially announced. As rumours suggested, Capcom's slick slash-'em-up Strider and intense indie TowerFall Ascension make up the upcoming month's PlayStation 4 offering. Elsewhere, the ageing PS3 gets scary with the...

Watch 12 Minutes of Freedom Wars Gameplay and Decide If It's a Sentence Worth Enduring

On the painted desert

Japanese publication 4Gamer.net has managed to grab 12 minutes of gameplay from upcoming Vita title Freedom Wars. The action RPG releases in just a few short hours in its native Japan, so don't be too surprised if you see plenty more videos hitting the internet within the next couple of days. If you're still struggling to get...

Shine on forever

If you've been eagerly waiting on an ETA for inFAMOUS: Second Son's first big slice of downloadable content, you're in luck, as the PlayStation Store's slapped a release date on the cleverly named inFAMOUS: First Light's pre-order page. The add-on, which puts you in the shoes of spunky conduit Fetch, will supposedly be available...

The PS4 Dev Team Were 'Dancing in The Aisles' After The Xbox One's Price Reveal

So were we

A lot has been said about the performance of the two major players at last year's E3. Regardless of your view, it's no secret that Sony's super system has been going gangbusters when it comes to numbers. And while it certainly wasn't the most crucial element, the PlayStation 4's significantly cheaper price tag can certainly take a lot of...

PS4's Resogun Rescues a Free Update Tomorrow, Adds New Trophies and Local Co-op

Boom, there it is

Despite the fact that Sony put a lot of stock into the PlayStation 4's retail launch line-up which included the likes of Knack and Killzone: Shadow Fall, many of us were too busy being mesmerised by Resogun to take notice. The downloadable spaceship shooter from developer Housemarque even went on to win our award for Best...

Now a Second Sony Exec Says That the Firm's Not Making More 'Mega Budget' First-Party Vita Games

Scaling back

Sony Worldwide Studios president Shuhei Yoshida recently declared in an interview that the platform holder’s not planning to make many more big first-party PlayStation Vita titles, and SCEE boss Jim Ryan has since elaborated on that point in a fierce interview with Metro GameCentral. “Are you going to see huge, mega budget Vita g

Should Sony Ditch E3 Stage Shows Like Nintendo?

A different direction

Very few people earnestly enjoy change. This author gets the jitters if Chart-Track’s weekly UK sales data isn’t ready to write about first thing on a Monday morning, and don’t even mention routine rupturing Bank Holidays. It was little wonder, then, that the web was awash with cynicism last year when Nintendo opted to...
