Paris Games Week 2015: Wake Us Up When Avicii's Vector Launches on PS4

Wake Us Up When Avicii's Vector Launches on PS4

Waiting for love

One thing that often gets forgotten when talking about the PSone is the impact that it had on fledgling music producers. The console was rife with rudimentary Digital Audio Workstations, and many of today's top audio engineers got their first taste of the profession on Sony's system. It sounds like Swedish house superstar Avicii...

News: Exactly What Is Gran Turismo Sport on PS4?

Exactly What Is Gran Turismo Sport on PS4?

It sounds like something new

Sony announced Gran Turismo Sport overnight, the first entry in Polyphony Digital's gargantuan simulation series on the PlayStation 4. In the wake of the announcement, we just assumed that it was Gran Turismo 7 under a new name, but speculation has been rife online that this is actually just a Prologue-esque stopgap...

Paris Games Week 2015: Ratchet & Clank Proves the Power of PS4

Ratchet & Clank Proves the Power of PS4

Up your arsenal

There were a few people in our press conference live chat pondering whether Ratchet & Clank's visuals were real during its Paris Games Week 2015 trailer, but we've played it and can confirm that it really does look like this. For a game that's getting a budget release, it's quite extraordinary how much juice Insomniac Games has...

Ready Your Petitions, As Gravity Rush Remastered Ain't Releasing at Retail in NA

Europeans will get boxed copies, though

We understand that Sony only has a finite number of marketing bucks to spend, but it does tend to hamstring some of its own franchises at times. Until Dawn is a recent example of a title that was incredibly well received, yet that hypothetical Hallowe'en push that we were all hoping for hasn't come. And now...

Paris Games Week 2015: You Can Rewatch Sony's Whole 2 Hour Press Conference Right Here

You Can Rewatch Sony's Whole 2 Hour Press Conference Right Here

Here's one we made earlier

For us Europeans, Sony's latest press conference actually started at a reasonable time for once. We're used to waiting up until the early hours of the morning for events like E3, but the firm's Paris Games Week presser started around the same time that we're usually leaving the Push Square office for the day. Sure, this...

Round Up: What Did Sony Show at Paris Games Week 2015?

What Did Sony Show at Paris Games Week 2015?

Jeux videos

It's time to wrap a big fat bow around our Paris Games Week 2015 coverage – well, until we've got some kip anyway. How's that for some English slang, American readers? We digress. The point is that it's time to wrap up all of the major announcements from Sony's press conference earlier today – just in case you lot missed them. We...

Paris Games Week 2015: MatterFall's the Next PS4 Exclusive from Housemarque

MatterFall's the Next PS4 Exclusive from Housemarque

Vanquish with voxels

When it comes to arcade shooters, there are very few studios that come close to Finnish outfit Housemarque. It's great to see the Resogun developer remain in Sony's stable, then, with its next game MatterFall announced during the platform holder's Paris Games Week press conference. It looks a little bit like Vanquish with...

Reaction: Poorly Paced Paris Presser Paves Way for PS4's Impressive 2016

Poorly Paced Paris Presser Paves Way for PS4's Impressive 2016

Sony's show stumbles, but the future's bright

Paris Games Week 2015 brought the goods earlier today – but could it measure up to Sony's extraordinary E3 2015 press conference? The answer, unsurprisingly, is no – but the Japanese giant still delivered some big announcements and ably illustrated just how much variety there is on the PlayStation...

Paris Games Week 2015: Gravity Rush 2's New PS4 Trailer Will Turn Your World Upside Down

Gravity Rush 2's New PS4 Trailer Will Turn Your World Upside Down

Topsy turvy

How could we possibly forget Gravity Rush 2? Acclaimed director Keiichiro Toyama took to the stage to show off some new footage from the forthcoming PlayStation 4 follow-up during Sony's big Paris Games Week press conference – and the project continues to impress. In addition to big boss battles and a new sidekick mechanic, we also got...

Paris Games Week 2015: Uncharted 4 Multiplayer Resolution Takes a Hit to Reach 60 FPS

Uncharted 4 Multiplayer Resolution Takes a Hit to Reach 60 FPS

Drake's sacrifice

Uncharted 4: A Thief's End's multiplayer looks familiar but fun if its reveal trailer is anything to go by. Sporting plenty of jumping and climbing alongside some explosive gameplay, it's perhaps exactly what we expected - but there's no doubt that some potential plunderers will be disappointed by the fact that the game's...

Paris Games Week 2015: Until Dawn: Rush of Blood Takes You on a Virtual Reality Roller Coaster

Until Dawn: Rush of Blood Takes You on a Virtual Reality Roller Coaster

A bit like the B*Witched song

You'll rarely find this editor getting angry over game announcements, but Until Dawn: Rush of Blood is one rumour that your humble host was hoping wouldn't come true. The forthcoming PlayStation VR exclusive is a rails shooter in the most literal sense, taking you on a warped roller coaster inside the mind of one Until...

Paris Games Week 2015: PS4's Dreams Looks More Like a Nightmare

PS4's Dreams Looks More Like a Nightmare

And we still don't know what it is

What is Dreams? In truth, even after a meaty Paris Games Week 2015 demo, we can't tell you. Media Molecule's forthcoming PlayStation 4 exclusive is so out-there that the developer doesn't appear to know how to show it. The things we do know: you control a customisable imp which can possess sculptures created by...

Paris Games Week 2015: Uncharted 4's Multiplayer Mode Emerges from Knee-High Cover

Uncharted 4's Multiplayer Mode Emerges from Knee-High Cover

A thief's work never ends

Ah, yes – Uncharted 4: A Thief's End has a multiplayer mode, and it's looking pretty great judging by this Paris Games Week trailer. In it, we see familiar favourites from the franchise dashing around gorgeous battlefields, teaming up with AI-controlled sidekicks, and unleashing all sorts of power-ups. It looks very...

Paris Games Week 2015: You've Still Got to Wait Quite a While for No Man's Sky on PS4

You've Still Got to Wait Quite a While for No Man's Sky on PS4

Ambitious sci-fi title finally gets a release window

We really hope that you didn't put too much stock into the rumour that No Man's Sky was releasing this week, because the title's new trailer says otherwise. After what seems like an eternity, the ambitious indie project finally has some sort of release window - and we're sad to say that it's not...

Paris Games Week 2015: PS4's WiLD Has Changed, But Still Shows Huge Promise

PS4's WiLD Has Changed, But Still Shows Huge Promise

It's only natural

Remember WiLD? You lot voted it your Game of the Show way back in 2014 following Sony's Gamescom press conference, but it's been missing in action ever since. Thankfully, the interesting looking title made a return during Sony's Paris Games Week presser with a full gameplay demo - and it still shows some real promise. That said,...

Talking Point: Did Sony's Big Paris Games Week Presser Impress You?

Did Sony's Big Paris Games Week Presser Impress You?

From France with love

The curtain has just closed on Sony's hotly anticipated Paris Games Week press conference, where we got a glimpse at Housemarque's next project, Horizon: Zero Dawn and Uncharted 4's multiplayer. The highlight was definitely Gran Turismo Sport – but Detroit and WiLD are worth mentioning as well. The question is: what did you...
