These Custom PS4 Hard Drive Covers Are Really Cool

Pimp your machine

Review: The Unfinished Swan (PlayStation 4)

The Unfinished Swan (PlayStation 4)

Placeholder strapline

Back in 2012, when indie startup Giant Sparrow released The Unfinished Swan, we were bowled over by it, awarding it a rare 10/10 in our review. Understandably, we were subsequently ecstatic when Sony announced earlier in the year that it was bringing the curious campaign to the PlayStation 4 alongside fellow digital download...

There Are Almost Eight Million PlayStation Plus Subscribers Globally

Level up

PlayStation Plus is a funny service. Largely unprecedented as a value proposition, it’s hard to shake the feeling that some of the premium membership’s more outrageous offerings have come back to bite it in the bottom. While the platform holder has been giving away critically acclaimed PlayStation 4 games like Velocity 2X and Dust: An...

How Has the PS4 Fared in Its First Year?

Report card

It’s been a funny first year for the PlayStation 4. Sony’s next-gen format has smashed sales records all over the globe, but the positivity that punctuated the platform’s launch has been replaced by an air of unrest over the past few weeks. The question is: has the system’s success paved the way for the fickle to pick fault, or...

Sony Temporarily Slashes the PS4's Price in the UK

Just in time for Call of Duty

While many have been eager to suggest that Sony won’t compete with the Xbox One’s temporary price drop in the United States, we noted in a recent feature that it’s been frequently adjusting the cost of the PlayStation 4 in the UK to keep its nose in front. Indeed, while the system hasn’t ever received any...

Review: Freedom Wars (PlayStation Vita)

Freedom Wars (PlayStation Vita)

Grind and punishment

Easily one of the PlayStation Vita's most anticipated titles, Freedom Wars plops you into a dystopian future that's full of typically stylish teens and giant mechanical beasts, and tasks you with whittling down a one million year sentence of service to your not-so-lovely community. For many owners of Sony's portable console, a...

Sony's Still Bleeding Money, But PS4's in Beast Mode

Marathon sprint

The reason behind Microsoft’s temporary Xbox One price drop is looking clearer by the minute: Sony has now shipped 13.5 million PlayStation 4 consoles worldwide – and it hasn’t even been out a year yet. The company added 3.3 million units to the system’s total tally in the quarter spanning July to September, boosting game...

Slick PS4 Shooter Resogun Will Save the Last Humans on Vita

System seller

Housemarque’s throwback arcade shooter Resogun is so good that we’d quite like to have a playable version augmented into our eyelids, but seeing as that’s not physically possible, we’ll settle for a PlayStation Vita version instead. Fortunately, it sounds like the Finnish indie is working on just that, assuming that comments...

Yoshida: DriveClub: PS Plus Edition Delayed on PS4 Until Further Notice

Plus, grovelling

You know that things have turned sour with your game when Shuhei Yoshida, the president of Sony Worldwide Studios, has to provide an update on it.

Have No Fear, The Order: 1886's Gameplay Demo Is 'Ancient'

Wipe away that dust

It may have been somewhat obvious, but that gameplay demo of The Order: 1886 that we see pop up every time Sony wants to show off the game is "ancient", according to Ready at Dawn CTO Andrea Pessino. Kindly translated by DualShockers.com, a tweet from the aforementioned developer states that "it’s an “ancient” build...

News: Wait, Did Sony Just Accidentally Reveal the Uncharted Collection for PS4?

Wait, Did Sony Just Accidentally Reveal the Uncharted Collection for PS4?

Not-so hidden relic

At this point, it’s probably fairly safe to assume that there will be an Uncharted Collection on the PlayStation 4. Sony has said that it doesn’t want to flood the market with re-releases, but does want to provide people that didn’t own a PlayStation 3 with an opportunity to play some of the previous generation’s best...

News: Are There Any Secret Features in PS4 Firmware Update 2.00?

Are There Any Secret Features in PS4 Firmware Update 2.00?

Yes, there are

Sony doesn’t tend to understand the concept of patch notes. While it will always detail the major changes included as part of a numbered firmware update, it frequently throws in hidden extras. This has been the case since the early days of the PlayStation 3, and just because it’s got a fancy new piece of hardware on the market, it...
