  • News Days Gone Patch 1.11 Cleans Up Minor Issues in PS4 Exclusive

    Progression issues fixed

    Days Gone may have released in a sub-optimal state, but Sony Bend has been pretty efficient at cleaning up issues. And that progress has continued, with the release of patch v1.11 earlier today.

  • E3 2019 Final Fantasy VII Remake Is Being Developed as a PS4 and PS5 Title

    Cross-gen is happening

    Is Final Fantasy VII Remake going to end up on the PS5 as well as the PS4? We certainly wouldn't bet against it. In fact, we'd probably put money on it getting a PS5 version when the console launches, supposedly in late 2020. But Square Enix isn't quite ready to unveil its plans for next-gen just yet, as you'd expect. It is,...

    Xbox boss says the trade show isn't the same without its rival

    Sony has famously skipped E3 2019, and while some would argue that it made the right decision, it's clear that some would've liked to have seen something from the platform holder. It may have had nothing to show, and it's obviously pursuing a direct-to-consumer approach with its State of...

    "I see"

    Shenmue III will see sullen protagonist Ryo Hazuki’s story reach the 40 per cent point.

    The burning question

    There were huge question marks over the purpose of E3 last year, when Sony’s tentpole showcase failed to meet expectations and the other publishers were unable to pick up the slack. This year has been immeasurably worse: whatever your thoughts on the various press c
