Sony to Discuss the 'Unique Social Experiences' Made Possible with Morpheus at GDC

Strap yourself in

Unlike motion controllers, Sony's forthcoming virtual reality headset Project Morpheus seems like the most antisocial piece of hardware ever. However, the platform holder begs to differ, as it intends to touch upon the "unique social experiences" possible only with the PlayStation 4 peripheral during a panel at GDC 2015 next...

Here's a Reminder That the PlayStation Vita Exists

Remember me?

Despite getting an extended section during PlayStation Experience, the PlayStation Vita's fall from grace has been pretty, well, sudden. We suppose that it was clear from the start that the format would never set the world on fire, but we'd expected a little more effort from the platform holder beyond Killzone: Mercenary and Tearaway...

PS4 Exclusive The Order: 1886 Is Packed Up and Ready to Go

Time to make history

There's no turning back now. Three weeks after going gold, The Order: 1886 now finds itself packaged up and sitting in shop storerooms. One sneaky Reddit user got a snap of their local outlet's stash, which they posted online for everyone to ogle. There are already copies of this out in the wild, as leaked videos are starting...

Resogun: Defenders Makes a Final Stand Next Week

Free update Resogun: Challengers out today

Resogun is still, in this editor's humble opinion, the best game on the PlayStation 4. That's not a slight against the next-gen system's software offering – it's a testament to just how good Housemarque's cylindrical shooter is. And fortunately, the Finnish developer is continuing to support the arcade...

Pachter: Sony Won't Mind if PS4 Loses the Console War

But it still wants to be on top

You can always count on seasoned Wedbush Securities analyst Michael Pachter to stoke the flames of the fictional format war.

Happy Birthday to Sony Executive Shuhei Yoshida

Many happy returns

Are we doing birthday notices now? Gosh, this site's gone right down the pan – we'll be posting pictures of DualShock-themed tables on Twitter next. Still, we suppose that Sony Worldwide Studios president Shuhei Yoshida is just about big enough to have his date of birth acknowledged on these hallowed pages – after all, he...

Preview: The PS4 Exclusives of 2015 - Tearaway Unfolded

The PS4 Exclusives of 2015 - Tearaway Unfolded

Cut from the same sheet

Tearaway should have been the PlayStation Vita's signature game. Designed from the ground up for Sony's pocketable platform, Media Molecule's chirpy platformer not only made use of every single input on the system – but it also ensured that they actually added something to the experience. This is something of a rarity –...

Indulge Your Inner-Eighties with Fresh SHAREfactory Themes

For those with no fashion sense

Way back when Sony released its free PlayStation 4 video editing suite SHAREfactory, we pondered whether it could become a bit of a cash cow for the platform holder. Well, judging by a post on the PlayStation Blog, it looks like that's about to happen, as senior producer Stuart Platt has revealed that the app'

Are Wallpapers Coming in a Future PS4 Firmware Update?

Shake it up

While we reckon that the PlayStation 4 is in a pretty good place right now, it's clearly missing some minor features that were present on the PlayStation 3 – like the ability to set a custom wallpaper for the console. Themes were introduced as part of the next-gen system's most recent firmware update, but these don't enable you to...

Uncharted 4: A Thief's End Looks Really Close to a Film, Says Naughty Dog Employee

Drawn to life

Frank Tzeng may not be a name that you immediately recognise, but he's one of the people helping to make Uncharted 4: A Thief's End look so darn good. A lead character artist at Naughty Dog, the masterful modeller has worked on dozens of other PlayStation games, including Killzone: Shadow Fall and Puppeteer. However, he believes that...
