  • Poll Which Uncharted Game Is the Best?

    Draaaaake!

    We bet that some of you saw this one coming. Naughty Dog's hardly put a foot wrong with Nathan Drake, the luckiest man alive and protagonist of the Uncharted series. Although Uncharted: Drake's Fortune didn't quite set the world alight when it launched back in 2007, we're not sure that anyone could have anticipated the runaway success...

  • News Polyphony Digital Wants Gran Turismo Sport to Be Entirely Playable in VR

    Wish fulfilment

    Given that Sony's ambitious PlayStation VR headset is due out in October, the platform holder's going to need a steady stream of software support to follow its release. And one of the biggest games on its docket right now is Gran Turismo Sport, which, according to Polyphony Digital chief Kazunori Yamauchi, will attempt to be fully...

  • News How Naughty Dog Made Uncharted 4 More Accessible

    Opening doors

    If you've played Uncharted 4: A Thief's End, you may have noticed that there are practically dozens of accessibility options in the game's settings. These are partly motivated by one disabled gamer who contacted Naughty Dog, explaining that he was unable to finish Uncharted 2: Among Thieves due to a slew of button bashing sequences...

  • News Gran Turismo Sport Is Only 50 Per Cent Complete

    Apparently

    Gran Turismo Sport is only 50 per cent complete. Well, that's according to a questionable comment made during today's unveil livestream. While the PlayStation 4 exclusive certainly doesn't look as poor as some online pundits are making out, Polyphony Digital has raised the bar for racing games with each successive console generation, so...

  • Live Watch the Gran Turismo Sport Unveiling Right Here

    In the fast lane

  • News Gran Turismo Sport's First PS4 Gameplay Trailer Takes to the Track

    Round the bend

    Hot on the heels of today's release date announcement, Sony has deployed the first PlayStation 4 gameplay trailer for Gran Turismo Sport, which… Looks a little bit rough if we're honest. Make no mistake, it's a handsome game, but with Polyphony Digital's property setting the visual benchmark so many generations in a row, we're not...

  • News Gran Turismo Sport Takes Pole Position on PS4 from 15th November

    First lap

    Sony's not ignoring the holidays this year, as it's just announced that the biggest brand in its stable will hit the PlayStation 4's starting grid from 15th November in North America and 18th November in Europe. That's right, the platform holder's just confirmed during a press conference in London that Gran Turismo Sport is on track for...

  • News Siren: Blood Curse May Be Sightjacking PS4

    Hanuda horror

    Japan Studio's wacky PlayStation 3 survival horror Siren: Blood Curse may be sightjacking the PlayStation 4 in the near future. The title popped up on the Korean Ratings Board overnight under its Western name – it was dubbed Siren: New Translation in its native Japan and Asia – indicating that some kind of remaster may very well...

  • News Sony Acknowledges the Demand for a New Crash Bandicoot Game

    Good old Jim Ryan

    We sincerely hope that Crash Bandicoot puts in appearance during Sony's E3 2016 press conference, because we're getting a bit sick of writing these filler stories. In the latest issue of the Official PlayStation Magazine, there's an interview with Sony Interactive Entertainment Europe president Jim Ryan, and in it, the always...

  • Weirdness Uncharted 4's Rolling Stones Will Blow Your Mind

    Rock 'n' roll

    The above GIF is doing the rounds, and it's pretty darn obvious why. It shows hunky hero Nathan Drake shooting some rocks in Uncharted 4: A Thief's End. They then proceed to slide down a cliff-face with unnerving authenticity. It really is something else, and perhaps justifies our

  • News Is Sony Reviving Legendary PSone Title G-Police?

    Under arrest

    Here's one that will date our readers: Sony's registered a trademark for G-Police in Europe. For those of you under the age of 28, this was a really popular sci-fi flight sim which released for the PSone all the way back in 1997 to rave reviews and some relatively strong sales numbers. A sequel released a few years later but never...

  • Talking Point Can Sony Top Its E3 2015 Press Conference?

    Year of Dreams 2.0

    It was the press conference of dreams. Those with cold hard rocks for hearts naturally disagreed, but a single show revolving around The Last Guardian, Final Fantasy VII, and Shenmue III was fan fiction right up until the moment that Sony rolled them out for real, one Earth shaking announcement after another. Granted, one game...

  • News Sony Gives Its E3 2016 PlayStation Press Conference a Time and Date

    Be there or be square

    Great news if you're an expectant PlayStation fan: Sony's given a time and date to its E3 2016 press conference. Not so great news if you're the editor of a UK based PlayStation website. Why? Because the bloody thing starts at 02:00AM here. Honestly, the things that we do... Anyway, you can look forward to seeing what the...

    Review Shadow of the Beast

    Adios, Amiga

    Of the numerous reboots, remakes, and remasters this generation has brought us, this one may just be the most drastic. Originally released in 1989 on the Commodore Amiga, Shadow of the Beast was well received and lauded for its mind-blowing visual fidelity. Heavy Spectrum's modern take on the hard-as-nails classic has been a long time...

  • News Uncharted 4 Patch Fixes Campaign Crashes and Improves Multiplayer

    Band aid

  • News There's More to Kojima Productions' Logo Than Meets the Eye

    Will be available as a figurine

    Metal Gear maker Hideo Kojima has partnered with Sony to create an all-new PlayStation 4 exclusive, but it'll probably be a little while before we get to see it in action. The auteur has been speaking to Japanese media, however, teasing in the latest issue of Famitsu magazine that there's more to his studio's logo...

  • News Is PS4K Scheduled to Launch Before October?

    For the upgraders

    The PlayStation 4K, or Neo as it's supposedly codenamed, is not a rumour anymore; Sony may have refrained from commenting on the upgraded hardware, but it's almost certainly happening. The big question is: when? Previous rumours pegged the supercharged platform for October, which is when PlayStation VR is also set to deploy.

    A worthy end?

  • News PS4 Was the Best Selling Console in the US Last Month

    Confirmation at last

    Sony refrained from releasing its usual self-fellating PR statement following last night's NPD report, leading many – ourselves included – to assume that the PlayStation 4 had failed to secure a seventh successive spell at the top of the US hardware charts. However, it's since confirmed to IGN that its new-gen system was...

  • News WipEout Co-Creator Will Make Sequel if Sony Allows Him

    In the fast lane

    The closure of Studio Liverpool seemingly placed the final nail in WipEout's coffin – but co-creator Nick Burcombe has said that he'd make a sequel if Sony gave him the rights to the brand. Of course, you may want to temper your expectations here – Burcombe's current team, PlayRise Digital, created Table Top Racing: World...

  • News Sony Says PS4 Exclusive Horizon: Zero Dawn Is Still Releasing in 2016

    Contrary to recent rumours

    We've had doubts for some time with regards to Horizon: Zero Dawn's supposed 2016 release window - and for good reason, as far as we're concerned. We've seen very little of the title since it was officially announced last year, and it's clear that it's an incredibly ambitious project - but Sony still insists that...

  • Video Uncharted 4 Looks Even More Gorgeous with Cel-Shading

    Wind waker

    One of the most disappointing things about Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception was the lack of bonus features unlockable after completing the campaign.

According to a press release, it will use the time to run a live Twitter competition, while showing...

  • News Crash Bandicoot's Dr. Neo Cortex Actor Asked to Resurrect Old Character

    Hmm

    There's been no shortage of Crash Bandicoot craziness over the past couple of years, but we get the distinct impression that things are about to heat up on Wumpa Island. According to a NeoGAF post, Lex Lang – who voiced Dr. Neo Cortex in the more recent Crash titles – has been asked to "resurrect" a "doctor" from a game gone by. We can't...

  • News Want a Boxed Version of Shadow of the Beast? Import One from Asia

  • News There's a Fake inFAMOUS Leak That Says Sucker Punch Is Making a Spider-Man Game

    But like we say, it's fake

    As we've written a couple of times now, there's no reason to believe that Sucker Punch is making a Spider-Man game other than the fact that it sounds like a match made in Marvel heaven. But that's not stopped people from losing their minds over a fake Amazon screenshot which was posted by
