Amazon Spain has added a new product page for a brand new PlayStation 4 console set to release on 13th October, prompting speculation that it could be the anticipated PS4K – or Neo as it's also known. The listing includes a €399.99 price point, which is exactly what we'd expect the upgraded...

Devs May Start Submitting PS4K Compatible Titles Next Month

Developer documentation leaks

As alluded in our Talking Point earlier today, we suspect that PlayStation 4K may happen fast. Sony's talked about its desire of selling the system soon after its announcement, and that could come any day now. Indeed, developer documentation which has leaked online suggests that studios will be able to start...

Is Sony Scared of Xbox's Scorpio?

Neo way

Microsoft jumped feet first into the iterative hardware space at E3 2016, announcing Project Scorpio for… Well, the end of 2017! Sony, on the other hand, opted to keep the PlayStation 4K closer to its chest, confirming that it is working on an upgraded console, but refusing to share specifics until the platform is officially announced...

Hey, the Steel Black PS4 Controller Isn't Bad Either

It's no crystal, but what is?

You've heard us go gaga over the sublime crystal DualShock 4, but Sony clearly isn't content with just one lavish hardware trailer. The PlayStation maker's just thrown out another video showcasing the steel black controller, which, while not quite as impressive as the aforementioned transparent beauty, is still rather...

Is Sony Holding a Press Conference at Gamescom?

Outlook's not good

Earlier in the year at E3 2016, Sony implied that it was still undecided regarding the venue of its European press conference this year. Historically, it's held the show at Gamescom, but last year it switched the event to Paris Games Week. However, with Microsoft skipping its European media briefing entirely this time, all eyes...

PS4 Exclusive Death Stranding Will Be Hideo Kojima's Best Work

Bold ambitions

Hideo Kojima – the creator of bonafide classics like Metal Gear Solid and, er, Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty – believes that Death Stranding, his brand new PlayStation 4 exclusive game, will be his greatest work to date. The veteran was speaking in Brighton at the Develop conference alongside fellow legend Mark Cerny, who...

These PS4 Bundles Are Getting Bigger and Bigger

Putting on weight

Console bundles become a less interesting point of discussion the older a platform gets, but while we've been ignoring PlayStation 4 packages for some time, Sony's been quietly making them bigger and bigger. Take this 1TB bundle available from UK retailer GAME starting tomorrow: it includes Uncharted 4: A Thief's End, Bloodborne,...

Drool Over This Crystal PS4 Controller Trailer

Phwoooooar

This particular author remembers being distinctly jealous of a kid back in primary school who had a crystal Game Boy Colour. It wasn't a "sexy" piece of hardware, per se, but there's just something strangely compelling about transparent tech. We're sure that some of you won't agree, of course, but before you start gobbing in the...

PS4 Smashes 3 Million Units Milestone in Japan

Not bad

It's taken a little longer than Sony may have hoped, but the PlayStation 4 has now crossed the three million units milestone in Japan, according to the latest Media Create report. The console launched on 22nd February 2014 in the platform holder's home nation, so it's taken over two years to achieve the target. While that sounds promising...

The Re-PLAY Sale Offers Discounts on Games You Probably Already Own

Check those download lists

Sony has brought a new sale to the US PlayStation Store, but its contents are rather underwhelming. Titled the Re-PLAY sale, it offers regular users discounts of up to 65%, and PlayStation Plus subscribers 75%. The problem is, you've more than likely already picked these games up. Titles included range from Journey,...

Demon's Souls Remaster Could Crawl Up and Die on Your PS4

Sony would need to find a developer, though

While we'd assumed that the industry was collectively done with remasters, it seems that there's still plenty of pent-up demand for a re-release of Demon's Souls on the PlayStation 4. And it could still happen according to director Hidetaka Miyazaki – it's just unlikely that From Software will be at...

Is It Time for PSone Classics on PS4?

Old-school

This week saw the release of two PlayStation 2 titles on the PlayStation 4: The Warriors and Metal Slug Anthology. The two articles that we wrote confirming these releases went on to become among the most viewed on the website over the past seven days, proving that there's pent-up demand for these retro re-releases.
