Time to cough up
It's been quite some time since we've heard anything about BioMutant, the promising RPG from THQ Nordic. We're still no closer to a release date, but that's not stopped the publisher from announcing two very pricey premium editions of the game. The Collector's Edition offers you a figurine, an A1-sized fabric print, and the...
Pre-orders live now
THQ Nordic is making early preparations for Crypto's arrival on PlayStation 4 in the Destroy All Humans remake. The game isn't due out until sometime next year, but the publisher has gone ahead and detailed two premium editions you can pre-order now. It seems it wants to Destroy All Humans' wallets, too -- these things ain't...
European retailer MediaMarkt has gone out on a limb with regards to PlayStation 5. Not only is it listing a console that officially doesn't exist yet, it's also allowing customers to pre-purchase the next-gen machine for a massively inflated price. Check out the product page for yourself. MediaMarkt Sweden is listing the PS5 on...
The Price is right
Whatever your feelings are on the Call of Duty franchise, most people will agree that the best character the series ever spawned is Captain Price. The moustached SAS badass who chomps cigars and kills with both bullets and wit, he's a brilliant companion throughout the Modern Warfare games. You even get to play as him in one of...

Physical and digital editions detailed
Yesterday finally saw the unveiling of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare after endless rumours and leaks. The new FPS from Infinity Ward is due out on 25th October, and it promises to reboot the sub-series with a more up to date plot, refreshed multiplayer, and more.
Special editions and pre-order bonuses detailed
The lid has just been blown off Death Stranding. Not only do we have an awesome new trailer, we now know the official release date. You won't be short of ways to buy Hideo Kojima's PlayStation 4 exclusive, either. Over on the PlayStation Blog, several editions of the game have been unveiled.
Are we getting a release date?
Today's the big day for Death Stranding, with Sony and Kojima Productions seemingly teasing something big. An ongoing live stream started yesterday, and will presumabl
Where to get your hands on RDR2
Red Dead Redemption 2 is out very soon indeed, and it's looking to be another stunner from Rockstar Games. The open world Western releases on 26th October 2018, and there are a couple of different ways you can get involved on PS4. If you're just after the game itself, there's the standard or special edition to...
Less bang for your buck
One of the benefits of an Amazon Prime membership was a small discount when pre-ordering games, but it seems that will be ending very soon. In an email sent to all Prime members, the giant online retailer stated that it will be putting a stop to the £2 discount. We would now like to inform you that we will no longer offer...
Every little helps
As part of the Totally Digital sale that’s running on the European PlayStation Store right now, PlayStation Plus members can get up to 20 per cent off select pre-orders. Eligible games include Last Day of June, PYRE, Super Cloudbuilt, the two versions of SUPERHOT, and PlayStation VR racer
PS4 Slim pre-orders also live ahead of launch
A few hours ago, we didn't really know what the PlayStation 4 Pro was going to be. Now, however, pre-orders are beginning to go live. Amazon, as is so often the case, is one of the first major retailers to hop aboard the pre-order train – and here are all the links you'll need to nab Sony's latest...
Sammy Barker's against this scary trend
We've got a problem, readers – and it pertains to pre-ordering games. I never used to be opposed to this practice: I'd regularly drop a fiver at my local GAME on titles that I was looking forward to, and would waltz home happily with a receipt and a pre-order pack – the DVD that came with Metal Gear Solid...
There are a total of six PlayStation 4 games available to pre-order on the European PlayStation Store right now, two of which have expanded premium options. This compares pretty poorly to North America, where there's at least double that amount. Noticeable absentees include Resident Evil and Grim Fandango, both of which support...
Nastier than Knack
Bloodborne makes Sweeney Todd’s cellar look like a luxurious underground apartment, so it’s no surprise to see the forthcoming PlayStation 4 exclusive get an utterly repulsive pre-order bonus. Available from GameStop in the United States, the extra comprises a bonus Messenger skin for use in the game. For those out of the...
Spoilt for choice
Pre-order bonuses used to be exactly that: pre-order bonuses. Retailers would compete over little knick-knacks such as t-shirts, keyrings, and action figures in order to secure your business, and you’d shop at the store that was giving away the specific goodie that you wanted. It was a largely harmless practice, with the...
Cutting it fine
You really should have pre-ordered a PlayStation 4 a long time ago if you wanted to get one in time for launch, but there is still hope at some stores around the UK. To be in with a chance of nabbing a wild console, you’re probably going to need to consider queuing up soon as we’re expecting the system to sell out quick. Still,
Looking to the future
This may be the first generation ever where you can purchase games for an unreleased system on its predecessor. Sony kickstarted digital PlayStation 4 pre-orders in North America overnight – and you can fulfil the required transactions via your existing PlayStation 3. That’s a pretty novel feature, isn’t it? Current...
Delsin Rowe, the potty-mouthed protagonist in inFAMOUS: Second Son, sounds like the type of person that changes his clothes several times before a night out on the tiles. As such, not content with the enormous roster of powers that developer Sucker Punch has already teased, the hero will also be able to swap his vest, as evidenced by
Box art also crosses the finish line
You may be hoping that Sony turns the ignition on some new PlayStation 4 titles this week, but the platform holder has also promised to provide some updates on the system’s existing lineup. That’s started this afternoon with the confirmation of DriveClub’s pre-order bonuses. If you register your interest in...
UK retailer shutting the batwing doors
You really are running out of time to pull the trigger on your PlayStation 4 pre-order in the UK. Yesterday, a CVG report claimed that Sony was set to introduce a deadline on next generation system sales, and online outlet Simply Games has reinforced that by sending out email reminders like the one embedded to...
Sony to introduce deadline in the UK
Sony is set to introduce a pre-order deadline for the PlayStation 4 in the UK, according to retail sources speaking with CVG. The site reports that any purchases placed beyond 5th August may not secure you a system at launch. If accurate, it means that you’ve got less than a week to put a deposit down on your...
Behind enemy lines
Killzone: Shadow Fall may be the showcase title for the PlayStation 4, but it’s hardly reinventing the wheel when it comes to pre-order bonuses. Picking up the surprisingly dense first-person shooter at participating retailers will reward you with the Shadow Pack, an exclusive offering that includes a handful of
Firm footing is not guaranteed in Call of Duty: Ghosts’ bonus ‘Free Fall’ map. The dilapidated arena – available alongside pre-orders for the impending first-person shooter – will drop you “into a shattered skyscraper on the brink of collapse”. As you play, the building will crumble in real-time, showcasing one of the...
Bundled with a bevy of goodies
Grasshopper Manufacture’s latest eyebrow-raising endeavour Killer Is Dead will flirt with store shelves on 27th August in North America, publisher XSEED Games has announced. All launch editions of the bloodthirsty outing will be bundled with an 80-page hardcover art book, a soundtrack featuring 25 songs produced by...
The response to the Xbox One’s unveiling may have been predominantly negative thus far, but data bubbling out of a handful of UK stores shows that Sony’s still going to have its work cut out if it intends to win the impending console war. MCV reports that pre-orders for Microsoft’s next generation machine eclipsed
If there’s anything that Americans hate more than commies, it’s not being armed to the teeth. Fortunately, Saints Row IV’s wonderfully tongue-in-cheek ‘Commander in Chief’ special edition recognises that fact, bundling the ultimate ‘Merica machine gun. The Swiss army knife of firepower boasts mini-guns,...
VP of bonus content
LittleBigPlanet Karting was only announced yesterday, but retailers are already vying for your pre-orders. Amazon.com is the first to make a convincing case, confirming that any pre-orders placed at the online retailer will be rewarded with an ex
