Update: Or maybe not?
Update: Antonio Fucito has commented on this rumour, stressing that Death Stranding's purported timed exclusivity is based on Kojima Productions' original announcement with PlayStation. This was before the developer signed the Decima Engine. As you were, then: Original Story: Back when Sony signed a deal with Kojima...
Sony’s been very accommodating with PC releases of late, licensing out so-called “second party” titles like Heavy Rain and Flower to different publishers in order to get them on non-PlayStation storefronts. Journey is the latest legendary PlayStation exclusive to, well, effectively lose its exclusivity – with a 6th June...
Heavy Rain, Beyond: Two Souls also lined up for Epic Games Store
Humanity has a price, and Epic Games is willing to pay it. Quantic Dream’s trilogy of ex-PlayStation exclusives are coming to the PC, which means that Heavy Rain, Beyond: Two Souls, and Detroit: Become Human will no longer be tethered solely to Sony’s systems. Controversially, the...
Every cloud and all that
PlayStation’s history is pocked with missed opportunities. Sony was first to the casual game boom with PlayStation 2 party games like SingStar and Buzz, but it allowed Nintendo to waltz in with the Wii and take that audience away. It was doing controller-less gaming long before anyone at Xbox had even uttered the words...
It looks like Sony is allowing Annapurna Interactive to bring some of the PlayStation 3's more famous indie titles to the PC, with Journey already announced and flower available now. The legendary thatgamecompany exclusive -- which sees you control petals as you restore natural beauty to increasingly polluted scenes -- first launched...
A new Journey
Legendary adventure game Journey is coming to the PC via the newly launched Epic Games Store, per publisher Annapurna Interactive. The iconic thatgamecompany experience is owned by PlayStation, but it seems the platform holder has allowed it to be released elsewhere, which is great for people who haven’t played it yet.
Service surpasses 500 on-demand games
PlayStation 4 games have been added to PlayStation Now’s library, meaning that for the first time you’ll be able to play exclusives like Killzone: Shadow Fall on a Windows PC. Sony announced that it would be adding new-gen titles to the subscription service earlier in the year, and a whopping 51 of them have...
Take back control
Remember the good old days of Game Genie and Action Replay? Japanese company Cyber Gadget is bringing all of that back, with the PlayStation 4 Save Editor set to release this March in the East. The PC-based software, which will cost ¥7,800 (~$70) for a single license and ¥14,800 (~$130) for a triple license, will allow you to...
Turn the Valve
The DualShock 4 has become a popular controller option for PC players, and so Valve is adding native compatibility for the PlayStation 4 peripheral on its Steam platform. "Believe it or not, when you use the PS4 controller through the Steam API, it's exactly the same as a Steam controller," Jeff Bellinghausen said during a panel at...
PlayStation Now has been a fixture in the Sony furniture for some time now, and that's left it a little misunderstood. In absence of true backward compatibility on the PlayStation 4, many see it as a solution for PlayStation 3 gameplay on the Japanese giant's new-gen machine. But, as its recent release on the PC testifies, the...
Power of the cloud
PlayStation Now's been misinterpreted by many. The cloud-streaming solution – often incorrectly labelled as Sony's answer to backward compatibility – is clearly an initiative in its infancy; the service that's available today represents the building blocks of a much bigger ambition, where PlayStation hardware is replaced by an...
Bandwidth caps be damned
As rumoured recently, streaming service PlayStation Now is coming to the PC starting tomorrow in the UK, Belgium, and the Netherlands, with more regions to follow imminently, including the US. The client will allow you to stream a growing catalogue of PlayStation 3 games to an Internet-connected computer, with more than...
Are you a big fan of the DualShock 4 controller? Do you enjoy using the device with your PC and Mac? Then here's some pretty good news: Sony's releasing a wireless USB adaptor for the controller in Europe and North America, starting 15th September in the Old World and "early September" in the United States. The accessory will support...
The future is Now
Rumour has it that PlayStation Now, the streaming service which allows you to play PlayStation 3 games in a Netflix-esque on-demand fashion, will roll out on the PC from 23rd August. The service is already available on the PlayStation 4 and Vita, and has launched on select Samsung and Sony televisions, but if true, this would...
Slow news day
The news has well and truly dried up in the wake of E3 2016 – just look at the headline to this article for proof. Yes, it's true: Sony has submitted a filing to the Federal Communications Commission for a USB dongle. The proposed product was submitted by the PlayStation division, but it's unclear what it actually does. Kill us now...
Never stop playing
Remote Play, the nifty PlayStation 4 feature that allows you to stream your games wherever you go, has now been extended to the PC and Mac. This means that, in addition to the PlayStation Vita, you'll be able to play all of your games on a laptop or a MacBook – as long as you have a DualShock 4 controller and a USB charging...
Brave new world
Much like fellow indie Helldivers, Sony will be handling the PC release of Everybody's Gone to the Rapture, which has been rumoured for an eternity, and has finally been officially confirmed. The eerie Shropshire set walking sim – which was one of our Game of the Year picks in 2015 – will launch on Steam in the near future,...
What a load of Macintosh
You may have read recently about an unofficial application which promised to enable PlayStation 4 Remote Play functionality on computers. Well, the people that have been building that must be feeling pretty darn rotten this morning, as Worldwide Studios president Shuhei Yoshida has confirmed that Sony's working on an...
Hell freezes over
Well, this is potentially huge news: Sony's bringing Helldivers to the PC. The game, which launched as a PlayStation exclusive earlier in the year, will be published by a company called PlayStation Mobile, Inc on the popular plaza. This is a division within SCE that has handled various smartphone spin-offs in the past, too. This...
Sony Online Entertainment is no more. As part of a shock announcement yesterday, the MMO developer confirmed that it had been acquired by a New York investment group named Columbus Nova, and would be rebranding itself as the Adrian Chiles-inspired Daybreak Game Company. This obviously came a
Movie media server
Despite the promise of future support from platform holder Sony, the PlayStation 4 is currently very poor when it comes to local media playback. While it includes compatibility with key applications such as Netflix and the BBC iPlayer, it’s currently impossible to play videos, listen to music, or even view photos from your local...
If the rampant speculation that Sony had reacquired the dormant Crash Bandicoot franchise earlier in the year got your hopes up, then we can only apologise. For a split-second, the stars seemed to align, and we genuinely believed that the mascot had come home. Then, of course, Activi
Well, sort of
Those of you that prefer traditional analogue sticks over touchpad things may be excited to learn that the DualShock 4 will be compatible with Windows PCs out of the box. As always, Sony Worldwide Studios president Shuhei Yoshida confirmed the snippet on Twitter, noting that the peripheral will work fine for “basic functions”...
All about EVE
Last night's E3 extravaganza was full of Move news, but one game that immediately stands out is Dust 514, a new shooter that links to the world of PC MMO EVE Online. The Move-enabled shooter connects to the persistent universe of EVE Online, with the actions of PS3 players affecting the game's notoriously expansive economy, political...
New project announced
You may remember a January rumour that we could see fan-made Move games come to PC. It's no longer just a rumour though, as Sony has announced Move.Me, a software suite coming to PS3 and PC later this year. John McCutchan explains the system more meaningfully than we could try, so it's over to him to explain what Move.Me does:...
On your Marks
We reported recently that we could see an update to allow PlayStation Move to work on PC, and it seems the driving force behind such an update could be none other than Dr Richard Marks, the controller's creator. Speaking to Ars Technica, Dr Marks mentioned his desire to open the controller to a wider range of creative folks: For a...
Controller is mouse and keyboard-friendly
We already know that DualShock players best Move users when it comes to Killzone 3, mostly due to the unfamiliarity of the Move technology compared to the well-worn DualShock controllers we've all been using for the best part of fifteen years. One part of the gaming population may find the adjustment easier...
