Sony's Helping Everybody's Gone to the Rapture Saunter Slowly to PC

Brave new world

Much like fellow indie Helldivers, Sony will be handling the PC release of Everybody's Gone to the Rapture, which has been rumoured for an eternity, and has finally been officially confirmed. The eerie Shropshire set walking sim – which was one of our Game of the Year picks in 2015 – will launch on Steam in the near future,...

Sony Computer Entertainment Officially Rebrands As Sony Interactive Entertainment

Not an April Fools' joke

Yes, it's still 1st April in some parts of the world – though the period of pranks is surely over globally at this point – but the formation of Sony Interactive Entertainment is no joke. You may remember us reporting on this a few weeks ago – well, now the deed is done, the documents are signed, and the new logo is...

Why I Don't Think PS4K Is Okay

Sony has 99 problems but 4K ain't one, says Sam Brooke

When rumours for the PlayStation 4K first appeared, I was pretty sure that it wasn't true. "Surely," my younger, unwise mind of a couple of weeks ago said. "Sony wouldn't shoot themselves in the foot by attempting to divide its fanbase." But, alas, here we are, with all signs pointing to a...

This Time, PSN Avatars Have Gone Too Far

No, this isn't a joke

Good lord, we debated whether or not to actually write an article on this but we decided that it's so ridiculous that we'd be fools not to. As pointed out by Wario64 on Twitter, what is quite possibly the worst (greatest?) PlayStation Network avatar ever created is now available for purchase. Indeed, for $0.99, you can trick...

News: Sony Plays the Nostalgia Card with This Collection of Final Fantasy Ads

Sony Plays the Nostalgia Card with This Collection of Final Fantasy Ads

All the way from VII to XV

Sony and Square Enix are obviously going to be pushing Final Fantasy XV pretty hard as we approach its 30th September release date, but we have a feeling that both companies will be gearing up to go all-out in Japan, where a game of this magnitude could have an impact on the shrinking home console market. As such, a...

Talking Point: Would You Buy an Upgraded PS4K?

Would You Buy an Upgraded PS4K?

4King hell

A wise man once said: there are no upgraded console rumours without PlayStation 4K – or something like that. The fact of the matter is that we've heard too much about Sony's hypothetical hardware half-step for it to not resemble some semblance of truth at this point; the question is whether the Japanese giant will actually decide to...

Rumour: PS4K Will Cost $399, Will Feature 4K Blu-ray, and Will Boast Better Graphics

PS4K Will Cost $399, Will Feature 4K Blu-ray, and Will Boast Better Graphics

God of War 4 will supposedly leverage new system

Another day, another PlayStation 4K rumour. This time the news comes courtesy of the most trustworthy of venues: NeoGAF. . According to OsirisBlack, he/she recently attended a meeting where information was disclosed on Sony's hypothetical hardware half-step. The member has been verified by a...

News: Shadow of the Beast Finally Skewers a PS4 Release Date

Shadow of the Beast Finally Skewers a PS4 Release Date

About bloody time

Shadow of the Beast has been in release date limbo for as long as we can remember, but Sony's finally got one nailed - and the good news is that it's not too far away. From what we've seen of it, the revived hack and slasher looks great, so really, the only thing that's been missing from this blood-fuelled action title has been a...

Soapbox: Why I Trust Sony to Do the Right Thing with PS4.5

Why I Trust Sony to Do the Right Thing with PS4.5

Sammy Barker's a believer – for now

Veterans of this website will know that it's rarely been as positive as it is now. Sony, in the pre-PlayStation 4 era, had a tendency to take one step forward and two steps back. Think about it: for every The Last of Us there was a Starhawk; for every forward-thinking initiative like PlayStation Plus there was...

Sony Announces Studio Dedicated to Making Mobile Games

Only operating in Asia for the time being

After Sony's ill-fated PlayStation Mobile was shut down on 10th September last year, it appeared that Sony would be ditching the Android and iPhone market for a while thanks to the initiative's lack of real success. It appears not, however, as, in a press release on Sony Computer Entertainment Japan's...

PS4, Xbox One Sales Outpacing Predecessors in the UK

Consoles still relevant, it seems

Bad news for all those people who predicted consoles were dying out: the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One are doing extremely well in the UK. New data released by GAME reveals that the combined total of new-gen consoles sold tallies 5.1 million units – while the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 could only muster 3.5 million...
