What Are Your PlayStation Meeting 2016 Expectations?

4K cometh

PS4K Neo Launches This Week According to Report

That was fast

We're now a couple of days away from a Sony press conference, so that can only mean one thing: rumours, and lots of them. This latest whisper comes from the Financial Times via GameSpot, who report that the PlayStation 4K, codenamed Neo, may well release later this week. Wait, what? As many of you are no doubt aware, Sony is hosting...

Chapter 3 - Man on the Moon

Take a hike

The Laptop system was, on first impressions, a bit of a letdown. One planet with two moons? Is that all you've got for me, Laptop? Pfff. It wasn't all bad, though. I hadn't really seen many moons at that stage, so I was intrigued to see if there were any differences. Perhaps they'd be rockier and less rich in resources. Whatever the...

PlayStation VR Continues to Impress in Epic Preview Session

Resident Evil! Batman VR! Farpoint! More!

We've been lucky enough to play PlayStation VR on several occasions now, and the novelty's yet to wear off. Granted, we haven't yet had to cope with cables, plugs, and calibration – a real-world headache that could significantly reduce the thrill of entering a virtual space – but we're yet to walk away...

Sony Reveals Extensive Tokyo Game Show 2016 Line Up

Not long now

Okay, so maybe the Tokyo Game Show doesn't quite bring in the hits like E3 or even Gamescom, but all the same, it's a big event for those primarily interested in what Japan has to offer. With this year's show now only a couple of weeks away, publishers are starting to ramp up the hype by announcing what they have in store - and Sony's...

PSN Down for Some as Web Rages Over Connection Issues

Offline and out

Battlefield 1's servers may be a bit more functional today, but Sony's aren't it seems. While not everyone appears to be affected, reports are swirling that PlayStation Network is having a few hiccups – despite the platform holder failing to comment at the time of typing. Most likely this is just a temporary blip, as was the case...

So, Where Did Those Leaked PS4 Slims Actually Come From?

The UAE, apparently

The PlayStation 4 Slim will be officially announced on the 7th September at Sony's PlayStation Meeting - that much is guaranteed at this point - but where did all of these leaked consoles actually come from?

PlayStation Now Review - The State of Cloud Gaming in 2016

Stream machine

PlayStation Now has been a fixture in the Sony furniture for some time now, and that's left it a little misunderstood. In absence of true backward compatibility on the PlayStation 4, many see it as a solution for PlayStation 3 gameplay on the Japanese giant's new-gen machine. But, as its recent release on the PC testifies, the...

PlayStation Plus' September Freebies Include Journey, Lords of the Fallen on PS4

Prince of Persia! Amnesia: Memories! More!

There was a lot riding on September's PlayStation Plus selection following the recent price hike, but dare we say that Sony's delivered? The lineup includes Journey and Lords of the Fallen on the PlayStation 4 – one of the greatest games ever made and a well regarded Souls clone. That's a strong...

Sick rig

RIGS: Mechanized Combat League is comfortably the flagship PlayStation VR launch title, blending sports with shooting to create a Rocket League-esque experience. But while much of the marketing has centred on the game's multiplayer modes, Guerrilla Cambridge has announced the title's single player campaign today. This essentially sees...

Which PS4 Titles Will Be Shown at PlayStation Meeting 2016?

Will there be any surprise announcements?

All of the discussion surrounding PlayStation Meeting 2016 has centred on hardware, and that's because it's looking like Sony will announce two new consoles at the conference. We already know about the PlayStation 4 Slim, of course – much to the frustration of the platform holder – but the PS4K (or...

Fly Away with a Ton of Gravity Rush 2 PS4 Gameplay

Katnip

Are you upside down with anticipation for Gravity Rush 2 on the PlayStation 4? Then you may want to watch back this PlayStation Japan livestream, in which there's a bunch of new gameplay on display.

PS4 Slim Will Support 5GHz Wi-Fi, Photos Suggest

Faster race

Good news for tech-heads who get excited by motherboards and cooling fans: the PlayStation 4 Slim will support 5GHz Wi-Fi, apparently.

Chapter 2 - Systematic

Infinite improbability

I was only my second star system in – now named Coaster, of course – but already it felt like I was in a whole new place. The Gek space station was a silhouette against a vivid burnt orange backdrop, and a couple of freighter ships warped imposingly close, blocking my view of the nearest planet. There were very few...
