This Modded Uncharted 4 PS4 Is Pretty Amazing

Golden

It's incredible how creative some people are when it comes to constructing modified consoles, and this Uncharted 4: A Thief's End-themed system is yet another example of that. Made by Romanian gamer Vulpe Adrian Andrei, the system employs a shirt similar to the one worn by protagonist Nathan Drake as well as leather bounding and pistole...

Talking Point: Will Sony Announce PS4K at E3 2016?

Will Sony Announce PS4K at E3 2016?

Neo or never?

Sony doesn't really announce hardware at E3. There are exceptions: the PlayStation Move was hastily wheeled out a few years ago in reaction to the Kinect, while the ill-fated but kinda awesome PSPgo was also confirmed during one Los Angeles show. But most of its big system reveals tend to occur elsewhere: the PlayStation 4 was...

News: Swiss Retailer Lists Crash Bandicoot for PS4

Swiss Retailer Lists Crash Bandicoot for PS4

But it proves nothing

An early E3 2016 leak or a retailer responding to rumours? This could be a case of both, in all honesty. While there's real reason to believe that something is going on with the Crash Bandicoot brand, the fact that Swiss retailer Alcom has listed a new entry for the PlayStation 4 is not evidence of anything at all – the...

PS Vita Passes 5 Million Units Milestone in Japan

Celebrate good times

Talking Point: Was Sony's E3 2015 Presser Really the Greatest Ever?

Was Sony's E3 2015 Presser Really the Greatest Ever?

Magic moments

Thinking back on it, E3 2015 was a bit of a blur. We were outrageously sceptical ahead of PlayStation's press conference, and if you go back and read our predictions, that's abundantly clear to see. We'd heard on the grapevine that Sony was going to use its media briefing to focus primarily on strategic partnerships with third-party...

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

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 ,...

A boy and a bird

IGN's pumping out some great Japan Studio content at the moment, and this latest clip takes you inside the famous first-party for a chat with The Last Guardian director Fumito Ueda. In it he talks about the title's decade-long development cycle, the transition to the PlayStation 4, and much more. It's a great watch if you've been...

No Man's Sky Dev Received Death Threats Over Delay

Sigh

A timely reminder that, for all of its brilliance, the Internet can also be a bloody awful place: No Man's Sky developer Sean Murray has revealed that he has received "loads of death threats this week" following the minor delay to Hello Games' hotly anticipated space sim. The title was pushed back from 21st June to 9th August this week,...
