  • Talking Point Should Sony Leverage PS4's Japanese Game Lineup at E3 2016?

    East wars

    E3 is a weird thing. The annual Los Angeles-based convention is attended solely by press and retail, is anticipated mostly by enthusiasts, but is by far the most "mainstream" of all of the gaming shows. Think about it: if Gamescom is eccentric European cuisine, then E3 is a hamburger and fries; if the Tokyo Game Show is Katanagatari ,...

  • News Yep, No Man's Sky Has Been Delayed Again on PS4

    No man, why

    It was inevitable, we suppose. Just two weeks ahead of Sony's E3 2016 press conference, No Man's Sky appears to have been hit with another delay. The information comes straight from the game's media page on playstation.com, so we'd say that it's pretty much official. You can probably expect some sort of statement from Sony or developer...

  • News New The Last Guardian PS4 Footage Will Give You Goosebumps

    Try not to tear up

    People often forget that E3 for Sony typically lasts longer than the week-long convention itself, with the platform holder prone to releasing tons of information and trailers prior to the show.

  • News The Last Guardian's Cat-Bird Will Be Contrary Like a Real Animal

    Enormous amounts of AI code used

    Team ICO's talking a big game with The Last Guardian, and you'd be brave to doubt whether the ragtag group can deliver. The PlayStation 4 exclusive's director, Fumito Ueda, did craft two of the greatest titles ever made, after all: ICO and Shadow of the Colossus. And speaking in the latest issue of EDGE, the auteur...

  • Rumour Is No Man's Sky Landing on Our Planet Later Than Expected?

    Space sim may be delayed

    No Man's Sky may have been delayed – disappointing millions but helping with our post-E3 recovery immensely. The ambitious space-faring sim was originally scheduled for a 21st June release date, but all has been quiet in outer-space for some time now, and sources tell Kotaku that the title has been pushed back.

Guerrilla Games tweeted out a photograph of downtown Los Angeles today, which has been...

  • News Uncharted 4's Focus Testing Didn't Always Go Smoothly

    One individual had to be ejected

    By and large, Uncharted 4: A Thief's End has prompted a pretty damn positive response – but not everyone is in love with the PlayStation 4 exclusive. But while criticisms of its pacing and platforming may be more than fair, comments about the gender of some of its characters are less reasonable. However, that's...
