Beta to come in 2016

Dreams captured the attention of many during its Paris Games Week demo (while also horrifying some) due to its huge amount of tools and available customization.

Don't Worry, Pretty PS4 Title RIME Is Still in Development

No RIME without reason

RIME appears to be taking more than art direction inspiration from Team ICO, as the hotly anticipated PlayStation 4 exclusive was absent at Paris Games Week 2015 yet again.

Sony Worldwide Studios president Shuhei Yoshida signs off on every PlayStation 4 exclusive – but there's so much in development that the affable executive's lost count.
