  • Poll What Kind of PlayStation Press Conferences Do You Want?

    Plan your perfect presser

    After the response to its E3 press conference last year, Sony went super-minimal with its E3 2017 show, cutting out all of the dialogue and focusing on nothing but games in a swift 60 minute presentation. But it’s been criticised for failing to show indie games and for focusing on titles more than a year away. Many also...

    Why so slow, bruh?

    The new Spider-Man game for the PlayStation 4 has been incredibly well received, winning our Game of the Show gong by a country mile.

    A new metric enters the fray

    YouTube’s released some data regarding E3 2017, detailing which titles generated the most buzz on the website.

  • News Sony: We Believe in Europe, And Won't Let Anyone Take PS4's Territory

    Jim Ryan on solidifying Sony's fortress

    It sometimes gets lost in the predominantly United States-based gaming media just how dominant Sony is in Europe.

    Platform holder drops neat new ad

    Have you noticed how Sony’s actually started talking about the PlayStation 4 Pro like it’s not embarrassed about it anymore?

    Platform holder pondering European show

  • E3 2017 Spider-Man Will Have Alternate Outfits on PS4

    Thwip

    This is probably the most obvious announcement of E3 2017, but Spider-Man will be able to unlock different outfits in the new PlayStation 4 game.

    Build the list

    Sony may not be a huge fan of backwards compatibility – or is that just Jim Ryan, mayhaps? – but it seems to be going all in on PlayStation 4 remakes and remasters. The past few months alone have plotted the release of PaRappa the Rapper and LocoRoco, and both Patapon and Shadow of the Colossus are still to come. And speaking on

  • Reaction Curtain Closes on Ill-Tempered E3 2017

    Forgettable show has been feisty

    Well, this one won’t live long in the memory, will it? E3 2017 has been fine, but it’s been far from vintage, and we’re struggling to think of any one announcement or theme that we’ll remember in the days to come – yet alone years.
