E3 2016: We Came So Close to Getting an Egyptian God of War

We Came So Close to Getting an Egyptian God of War

Oh, Mummy

God of War is back, and it's looking better than we ever could have imagined. Kratos has returned, but this time he's got a new set of Gods to deal with – all from Norse legend. "We are parsing it as the time in which the Vikings spoke of their Gods walking the Earth," creative director Cory Barlog told a panel at E3 2016, as reported...

E3 2016: Sony's Surprised Microsoft Announced Xbox Scorpio Over a Year Ahead of Time

Sony's Surprised Microsoft Announced Xbox Scorpio Over a Year Ahead of Time

Suggests that PS4K may release very soon after reveal

Sony boss Andrew House has admitted that he was surprised Microsoft announced the Xbox Scorpio this week considering that it's almost 18 months away. "The dynamics of the tech industry are such that there's a much heavier emphasis on immediate gratification than there was," he told The...

E3 2016: Gravity Rush 2 Looks Like the Best PS4 Game That Sony Ain't Talking About

Gravity Rush 2 Looks Like the Best PS4 Game That Sony Ain't Talking About

Meow

One area we always criticise with Sony is the fact that it doesn't always put its best foot forward. Gravity Rush 2 legitimately looks sensational, and yet it's not doing a great job of getting the title in front of console owners. Fortunately, IGN invited series creator Keiichiro Toyama to its E3 2016 live show, where it's shown a huge slice...

E3 2016: Sony Will Not Bifurcate the Market with PS4K

Sony Will Not Bifurcate the Market with PS4K

Not about creating haves and have-nots

Sony may not have shown the PlayStation 4K at E3 2016 this week, but its messaging has been razor sharp: the iterative console represents a step-forward for gamers looking for the best possible performance, but no one will get left behind. It's an option – and it will be sold concurrently alongside the...

E3 2016: God of War PS4's Set After God of War III

God of War PS4's Set After God of War III

Not a total reboot, then

One question we had following God of War's amazing demo during Sony's E3 2016 press conference this week is whether it's a continuation of the events that have taken place in previous games – or if it's just a complete reboot, with Kratos pulled into a different mythology. According to creative director Cory Barlog,...

E3 2016: Sony Anticipates PlayStation VR Supply Shortages

Sony Anticipates PlayStation VR Supply Shortages

Games to generally cost between $20 and $40

It sold out within minutes of being available for pre-order on Amazon, and now Sony has warned that PlayStation VR may be supply constrained when it launches on 13th October. "We have growing confidence that we'll be supply constrained with this product, but we'll do our very best to meet demand," boss...

E3 2016: What Was That Death Stranding Trailer About?

What Was That Death Stranding Trailer About?

Honestly? No idea

Death Stranding, the new game from Hideo Kojima, looked freakin' rad, didn't it? But, er, what the f**k was going on? That's exactly what the Internet's been trying to decipher for the past 24 hours – and it hasn't come up with any solutions yet. There are theories out there, though, which are fun to chat about, we suppose...

E3 2016: PS4 Architect Mark Cerny Is Working on Hideo Kojima's Death Stranding

PS4 Architect Mark Cerny Is Working on Hideo Kojima's Death Stranding

In the tub

Mark Cerny, the PlayStation 4's architect, appeared in the credits for Hideo Kojima's mysterious Death Stranding trailer this week, suggesting that the industry legend will have some role in the development of the exclusive game. The outrageously talented veteran was listed as Technical Producer, which makes a lot of sense considering...

E3 2016: PS4 Exclusive Days Gone Has a Heavy Weather Component

PS4 Exclusive Days Gone Has a Heavy Weather Component

Motorcycle is being treated like a character

Days Gone – which we previously expected to be named Dead Don't Ride – surprised us in a good way at E3 2016. We'd anticipated a hammy, heavy metal vibe – but the biker culture that surrounds this post-apocalyptic release actually seems understated and thoughtfully done. But we don't know a whole...

E3 2016: Sony's Added a New Studio to Its First-Party Family

Sony's Added a New Studio to Its First-Party Family

Well, sort of

Sony has no shortage of first-party studios, but it looks like a new team has been officially recruited to the Worldwide Studios family. SIE San Mateo has always had a light role in game development – it houses various internal technology groups and Entwined developer PixelOpus – but it seems like it's going to have more...

E3 2016: Here They Lie Is a Psychological PlayStation VR Exclusive

Here They Lie Is a Psychological PlayStation VR Exclusive

Looks weird

You know what genre really works in virtual reality? Horror. There's a reason that Capcom's gone PlayStation VR crazy with Resident Evil 7, and it's because the tension that survival horror creates is upped astronomically when it engulfs your entire being. Here They Lie – a new title created by a small team of industry veterans in...

E3 2016: The Very Best Games Are on PS4, Sony Claims

The Very Best Games Are on PS4, Sony Claims

Can't really disagree

There's no denying it: E3 is about chest-beating more than anything else. The fact that Sony's released a sizzle trailer proclaiming that the best games are on the PlayStation 4 is not all that surprising, then – and it's difficult to argue with its point. From the exclusives like God of War and Horizon: Zero Dawn to the...

E3 2016: Sony May Have Pulled Its Big E3 2016 Conference Closer

Sony May Have Pulled Its Big E3 2016 Conference Closer

But what was it?

While Sony's E3 2016 press conference was stacked with untold riches of first-party titles, we did think that it was odd how the platform holder practically opened with Days Gone – and then closed with it as well. This has led to some speculation that the organisation changed its schedule, and while it's possible that the...
