Pre-Order Prices of PS4 Blockbusters Plunge on Amazon UK

Battlefield 1! Mafia III! Watch Dogs 2!

While we're not the biggest advocates of pre-ordering games, we are supporters of saving money.

One or two people working on Sony titles

CD Projekt Red's decision not to update The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt for the PlayStation 4 Pro has prompted some people to ponder just how many resources developers need to commit to the new machine.

Chapter 5 - Atlas, At Last

We are not alone

I didn't really want to leave the Rachel system. There were lots of planets, all of them were great for different reasons, and I was making mega space bucks. I found another planet, not far from Gravitino Rush, that was covered in venom sacs. They were also worth a bundle, and collecting them was just as dangerous as it was with...

Poll: Should the PS4 Pro Have a UHD Blu-ray Player?

Should the PS4 Pro Have a UHD Blu-ray Player?

A moment of clarity

Sony took a bath on the PlayStation 3 just to get Blu-ray into as many homes as possible, so it's strange to see the company ignore the fledgling Ultra High-Definition Blu-ray format a decade later. Times have changed since the turbulent days of 2006, of course: streaming is, for many, their primary means of consuming media now...

Sony 'Pleasantly Surprised' by Strong PS4 Pro Pre-Orders

That's a pro, then

We suppose that the reaction to the PlayStation 4 Pro could be described as mixed, but its sales seem to be off to a decent start.

PlayStation Japan's New Commercial Must Have Cost a Fortune

We can do everything

Horizon: Zero Dawn Is a Proper Role-Playing Game

New gameplay highlights RPG systems

Hear Kat's Chorus in Gorgeous Gravity Rush 2 Trailer

Oh Hekseville

We've absolutely no idea why Gravity Rush 2 is being treated like the black sheep in Sony's first-party portfolio; in addition to Horizon: Zero Dawn, the title has shown incredibly well with each new trailer. And this TGS 2016 clip is no different, teasing the origins of heroine Kat, as she takes to the stage in a glamorous dress and...

And ours isn't off the back of a lorry

Leaks presumably irritate every organisation operating in the games industry, but Sony must have been particularly peeved by the PlayStation 4 Slim's premature reveal.
