  • Reaction Great Games Rule Supreme at E3 2018

    Content is king

    The story of this E3 2018, as far as we’re concerned, has been great games. We all have lapses in our excitement for the medium – it’s natural. But if you went into this year’s event feeling a little fatigued, then no doubt you’ll have found something somewhere to rekindle your enthusiasm. Whether it’s the hushed whispers...

  • Reaction Sony's Strong E3 2018 Show Almost Ruined by Rubbish Format

    Dangerous territory

    Sony’s E3 2018 press conference was unlike any we’ve seen before – and, if we’re brutally honest, any we’ll ever see again. The platform holder mixed things up heavily for its showcase, but one thing remained predictably consistent: industry-leading first-party games. We’ve pulled together our trio of editors to share...

  • Reaction Microsoft's E3 2018 Press Conference Was Killer for PS4 Owners

    A great show for Sony fans

    We’ve always said that you can’t truly judge an E3 press conference until you work it; the sheer number of news articles in the aftermath is the real test of how many games were on display.

  • Reaction Remembering PS3 - The Console That Wouldn't Quit

    Two steps forward, one step back

    The PlayStation 3 showed two sides to Sony. At launch, the device was nothing short of a disaster: overpriced, over-engineered, and out-of-touch with consumers’ wants and needs, it was the manifestation of a decade’s worth of hubris – the product of a company who thought that it could do no wrong. But three...

  • Reaction Will Sony Be Scared of the Xbox Scorpio?

    Sting in the tail

    Xbox's premium console Project Scorpio has been a source of conversation ever since a 90 second trailer outed the device at E3 2016 almost 12 months ago.

  • Reaction Why Sony Won't Deploy PS4 Exclusives on PC

    Well, not many of 'em

    Microsoft melted the web with its Quantum Break announcements yesterday. Unfortunately for Remedy, the forthcoming time-shifting affair got nudged to the side, as platform politics ruled the day. For those of you that missed it, the Redmond firm confirmed that the release would be coming to the PC day-and-date with the Xbox...

  • Reaction EGX London Hammers Another Nail in PS Vita's Coffin

    Dead too soon

    Sony managed to squeeze a double-decker bus onto its booth at EGX London last week, but we didn’t spot a single PlayStation Vita. The flailing format has been largely ignored at the platform holder’s various press conferences this year, but has always enjoyed a strong showfloor presence, with titles such as Freedom Wars and
