First Impressions: What New Tricks does Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition Learn on PS4?

What New Tricks does Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition Learn on PS4?

Yes Wei

Many would argue that the original Sleeping Dogs was the overlooked sandbox gem of the last generation. The title's setting of Hong Kong had a quirky feel to it, and gameplay mixed exploration, kung-fu combat, and a surprisingly enjoyable story. It certainly wasn't as polished or as vast in scope as something like Grand Theft Auto V, but...

What Will You Be Able to Do in Final Fantasy XV's Four Hour Demo on PS4?

Drive a car

We still don’t know exactly when Final Fantasy XV’s demo will release, but we do know that anyone who purchases a brand new copy of Final Fantasy Type-0 HD next year will be eligible to download the taster on the PlayStation 4.

Final Fantasy Type-0 HD Looks Better Than Ever in This PS4 Trailer

Launching March 2015

Final Fantasy Type-0 is one of those all too common videogame enigmas. Originally released on the PlayStation Portable, it never made its way to western shores. However, the game lives on, and will be receiving a High Definition remake for the PlayStation 4. As a gentle reminder of this fact, Square Enix recently released this...

Type-0 Companion Final Fantasy Agito Is Coming to PS Vita

Still no Type-0

When poor little Final Fantasy Agito was announced for smartphones and tablets, it was vastly ignored in the West, mainly because of its purpose as a prequel and companion game to the unreleased Final Fantasy Type-0. To add to the PlayStation 4 port announcement of the former PSP exclusive title, however, Square Enix has announced...

Dragon Quest Meets Dynasty Warriors in PS4's Dragon Quest Heroes

Musou for life

It seems like an eternity since we had a Dragon Quest game on a PlayStation platform, but that's all changing next year — in Japan, at least. Announced at Sony's pre-Tokyo Game Show conference earlier today, Dragon Quest Heroes is a collaboration between Square Enix and Omega Force — the developer behind the Warriors games. In...

News: Xbox Chief's Uncharted Adoration Motivated Tomb Raider Deal

Xbox Chief's Uncharted Adoration Motivated Tomb Raider Deal

"We don't have an action adventure game of that quality"

Back when Microsoft ambiguously announced that it had secured Xbox exclusive rights to Rise of the Tomb Raider, we speculated that it may have been looking for a direct competitor to Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End. The specifics of the deal are still shaky almost seven days later, but it...

Reaction: Why Lara Croft Will Still Raid PS4 in Rise of the Tomb Raider

Why Lara Croft Will Still Raid PS4 in Rise of the Tomb Raider

Reading between the lines

Kudos to Microsoft, it actually dropped a press conference megaton. While we’d argue that Jack Tretton’s corporate beatdown at E3 2013 was a memorable media briefing moment, it wasn’t exactly a huge surprise – in fact, those are becoming rarer as the major industry players all merge into a similar entity. The fact...

Them's the breaks

We were promised surprises at this year's Gamescom conference, but this isn't exactly what we had in mind. That's right, it seems that the absurdly titled Rise of the Tomb Raider won't be making its way to the PlayStation 4 after all. During Microsoft's media briefing today it was announced that Lara Croft's latest hellish holiday...
