  • News Microsoft Didn't Expect Sony to Ditch 4K Blu-ray Either

    What the 4K?

    We probably all expected the PlayStation 4 Pro to have a 4K Blu-ray player – Sony's one of the founders of the physical media format, after all. But the supercharged system doesn't, with the Japanese giant favouring streaming ahead of the disc-based playback option. And it turns out even its main competitor Microsoft expected the...

  • Poll Should the PS4 Pro Have a UHD Blu-ray Player?

    A moment of clarity

    Sony took a bath on the PlayStation 3 just to get Blu-ray into as many homes as possible, so it's strange to see the company ignore the fledgling Ultra High-Definition Blu-ray format a decade later. Times have changed since the turbulent days of 2006, of course: streaming is, for many, their primary means of consuming media now...


  • Guide How to Download PS4 Patches without Booting a Blu-ray

    Saving time

    There’s no doubt that the PlayStation 4 makes keeping on top of patches and game updates easier than ever before. Simply stick your system in Rest Mode – when it works – and the operating system will handle any downloads and installs behind the scenes. There is an oversight in the hardware, however, that prevents patches for...

















  • Report Blu-Ray Is A Primary Motivator When Buying PS3s

    Research company Nielsen's discovered that one of the primary motivators for consumers buying a Playstation 3 is the blu-ray playback functionality

    After polling a relatively small sample of 700 people, the company found that 65 per-cent of would-be consumers thought blu-ray was a pretty big deal. 62 per-cent said they wanted access to the PS3's extensive games library. God Of War III ranked as the..








  • News Australia Get Ultimate Blu-Ray Packaged Bundles

    Those lucky folks in Australia (read: they'e not always very lucky with games so perhaps they deserve this) are getting a "PS3 Ultimate Blu-Ray Kit"

    Ok, so the use of the word "ultimate" is a bit loose but this is still pretty neat. For $60 AUD (or $51 US), those who purchase the kit will receive an official Playstation 3 remote, a copy of the movie 300, and either Batman Begins or..

  • News 28 Weeks Later Dude In The Picture For Bioshock Movie

    Variety are reporting that Universal Pictures are in contact with director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo over a Bioshock movie adaptation

    Gore Verbinski was originally pencilled in to direct the movie, but he's now moved into a producer role, preferring to direct a new Pirates Of The Caribbean movie. We actually think Bioshock would make an amazing movie. No snarky comments from us.

  • News Milla Jovovich Talks About Why They're Making A Fourth Resident Evil Movie

    Did you wonder why Paul W

    S. Anderson and his fiancee actress Milla Jovovich were making a fourth Resident Evil movie about your favourite RE character Alice? The answer, according to Milla, is money."The movie makes money," says Jovovich. "If it makes more money than the last one, you'd think that people want to see another one, so we'll do another one. There's been a lot of..


  • News inFamous Is Heading To The Cinema Too, Erm, Hurrah!

    Alongside Nathan Drake, Sony Pictures want to bring Sucker Punch's Cole McGrath to the big screen

    In fact, they want to do it so badly they've already got a screenplay drafted out by Sheldon Turner. Hollywood hotshots Avi and Ari Arad are said to be producing the movie; they're also apparently going to work on the Uncharted movie. To be honest, inFamous could probably translate to cinema better..

  • News So Where Exactly Do Playstation 3 Games Come From?

    These shots were taken inside Sony's new Blu-Ray factory in Sydney, Australia

    The recently opened factory had its doors opened for press photography this week and the fascinating shots of machinery were the result of the opened doors. Looks like they were pressing some retail copies of PAIN at the time.

  • News Dead Space Will Become A Movie, D.J. Caruso To Direct

    A live action Dead Space movie is on the horizon according to Variety

    They claim that D.J. Caruso (Eagle Eye, Y: The Last Man) has been signed up for directing duties while EA and Temple Hill producers (Marty Bowen and Wyck Godfrey) search for a writer. It'll be a while before cameras start rolling but it certainly seems like the cogs are in some serious motion. Expect a Dead Space movie within the..

  • News New Resident Evil Movie Coming Next Year

    Hey who wants more of Milla Jovovich's "Alice" character? Well, really, we'd rather the Resident Evil movies had stuck to their original fiction, but hey, whatever

    The Resident Evil movies aren't the worst video game movies ever, and if you detach yourself from the fact that they have absolutely nothing to do with Resident Evil, they're actually kinda ok. Regardless, if you don't like them, we..


  • News Kaz Hirai: No Regrets Over Blu-Ray

    We're at the point of this generation where the platform holders can look back on their systems and question any mistakes that may have been made along the way

    Faulty hardware for Microsoft, Wii Music for Nintendo, but what about Sony? The blu-ray player perhaps? Kaz Hirai - Sony's head honcho - thinks not:"Purely from a gaming standpoint there was no other choice for us." The reason..
