  • Poll What's Your Favourite PS5 Launch Game?

    A lot to choose from

    The PS5 has been out for more than a week now here in Europe — it's been a whole two weeks of next-gen gaming in the US — and we reckon that Sony's new system has enjoyed one of the best console launch lineups ever. Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales and Demon's Souls lead the charge, but let's not forget about solid third...

  • Poll Is the PS5 DualSense Sony's Best Controller Yet?

    It's time to Dual

    The PS5 has been out for at least a week now (depending on where you live), and we want to know what you think of the DualSense — the console's high-tech controller. Featuring advanced haptic feedback functionality, adaptive triggers, and a built-in microphone, it's a premium piece of kit, and a key PS5 selling point. Here at...

  • Poll Have You Experienced PS5 Coil Whine?

    Whirred and wonderful

    PS5 coil whine has been perhaps the biggest complaint of next-gen early adopters. While Sony’s new console is undoubtedly quieter than its PlayStation 4 range, some users are reporting an irritating whistling sound when playing graphically intensive games, like Demon’s Souls. This can range from a whining to a buzzing to a...

  • Poll Did You Get a PS5?

    Next-gen is here

    After what's felt like a long and winding week of waiting, the PS5 has finally launched in Europe. And so, for this weekend's poll, we're going with the most obvious question: do you have a PS5? If you do, by the way, you should check out All Our PlayStation 5 Coverage. Whether you pre-ordered it months ago or somehow managed to...

  • Poll What PS5 Launch Games Will You Buy?

    Building the list

    At the time of writing, we are exactly 10 days away from the launch of the PlayStation 5 (add an extra week on if you're unlucky like us). We're all incredibly excited to get our hands on the hardware itself, mess about with the user-interface, and discover the features Sony hasn't detailed just yet. However, what's the release of...

  • Poll Are You Happy with Your PS Plus Games for November 2020?

    Plus or minus?

    November 2020's PlayStation Plus games have been announced, and it's a bit of a bumper month for the subscription service. Not only are we getting two highly rated PS4 titles — Sony's also thrown our very first PS5 game into the mix. That's right, the one and only Bugsnax debuts alongside Middle-earth: Shadow of War and Hollow...

  • Poll What Do You Think of the PS5 UI?

    What's your favourite feature?

    Sony has revealed the PS5 user interface, with an in-depth video demonstration giving us a pretty good idea of how the next-gen system will operate. Obviously we all need to go hands on with the PS5 before jumping to any complete conclusions, but in our humble opinion, the UI is looking impressively slick. But of...

  • Poll How Often Will You Use PS5 Backwards Compatibility?

    Flashback or flashforward

    Now that Sony has confirmed virtually every single PlayStation 4 title will be playable on PlayStation 5 except for a list shorter than 10, we can start to work out how often we'll take advantage of the feature. Select current-gen games, such as Ghost of Tsushima, will run even better on the next-gen console with

  • Poll What's Your New PlayStation Trophy Level?

    Level up

    Sony’s made the first meaningful change to Trophies since the system was introduced on the PlayStation 3, altering the way level progress is calculated in order to make it feel more rewarding. Previously, you could spend months – sometimes even years – on the same level, but now the math has been altered in order to give you a greater...

  • Poll Are You Happy With Your PS Plus Games for October 2020?

    Plus or minus?

    October's PlayStation Plus games have been announced, and, well... The reaction hasn't been brilliant. For starters, we've got Vampyr. By most accounts it's a decent game (we gave it a 6/10), but it's the kind of semi-forgotten title that you'd expect alongside a blockbuster. Except there is no blockbuster — there's only Need for...

  • Poll Which Peter Parker Face Do You Prefer in Marvel's Spider-Man?

    Original, or Remastered?

    When Insomniac Games said that Peter Parker's model would be updated in Marvel's Spider-Man: Remastered on PS5, we didn't think that the nerdy protagonist would be getting an entirely new face — but here we are. A quick and easy poll for you, then: which Peter Parker face do you prefer? There's no doubt that the new face...

  • Talking Point Are You Worried About the Future of Western RPGs on PS5?

    A new era

    With Microsoft's acquisition of ZeniMax Media, and therefore Bethesda Game Studios, the PS5 has potentially lost out on a Western RPG powerhouse. Now that Bethesda joins inXile and Obsidian Entertainment under the Xbox Game Studios umbrella, the team in green has established something of a genre monopoly. Granted, it's going to be a while...

  • Poll Has Xbox's Bethesda Buyout Made You Reconsider a PS5 Purchase?

    Fus Ro Damn

    Unless you've been living under a rock for the past couple of days, you'll know that Microsoft has purchased Zenimax Media and all of its studios for a whopping $7.5 billion. They now belong under the Xbox Game Studios umbrella and so the release of future Bethesda titles on PlayStation 5 is no longer a sure-fire thing. Microsoft suit...

  • Poll Will You Buy a PS5?

  • Poll Did You Buy a PlayStation at Launch 25 Years Ago?

    Were you there on day one?

    The original PlayStation celebrates its 25th anniversary today in the US, and later this month in Europe. That's right, it's been 25 years since the PlayStation launched here in the West. Twenty-five! As such, we thought it might be fun to ask if you were there at launch, all those years ago. We're not trying to pin an...

  • Poll How Much Are You Willing to Pay for PS5?

    Money matters

    We’ve tackled this topic on numerous occasions before, but the PS5’s price announcement must be nearing and so it’s always worth revisiting things and getting a feel for where people’s preferences lie.

  • Poll Did You Buy Marvel's Avengers?

    Assemble

    Marvel's Avengers is out now on PlayStation 4, but do you plan on buying a copy? We still remember the game's official reveal at E3 2019. It was a very muddy announcement, with Square Enix failing to tell us anything about how the title actually played. The Avengers themselves looked like knockoffs, and the mere mention of "no...

  • Poll What PS5 Information Do You Want Most?

    Price? Release date? Launch games?

    It feels like an age has passed since the PlayStation 5 was revealed. We're all sitting here hungry to hear more, but Sony's been silent on its next-gen plans ever since the big event in the middle of June. The Japanese giant still has so much to information to share. We don't have a price. We don't have a release...

  • Poll When Will You Buy a PS5?

    The time factor

    Deciding when to pull the trigger on purchasing a PlayStation 5 will be an important factor for many. It's a verdict that represents a much weightier investment than simply buying a game, taking into account your financial situation and what stage of life you're at. Next-gen consoles are always pricey at launch, and so we want to...

  • Poll Did You Get Free PlayStation Store Credit from Sony?

    PlayStation Plus plus

    Late last week, Sony started sending out free PlayStation Store credit to PlayStation Plus subscribers. Some users had £10/$10 automatically added to their PlayStation account in celebration of PS Plus' 10th anniversary, and they were told of this through the notifications screen on PS4. However, not everyone was lucky enough...

  • Poll What Review Score Would You Give Ghost of Tsushima?

    Sharpened steel

    Ghost of Tsushima has been out for a full week now, and as always, we want to know your thoughts.

That's what we're here...

  • Poll Did PS5 or Xbox Series X Have the Better Next-Gen Showcase?

    First impressions

  • Poll What's Your Favourite PS4 Game of 2020 So Far?

    The community decides

    It might not have felt too much like a summer drought thanks to the releases of The Last of Us: Part II and Ghost of Tsushima, but we are slowly approaching the business end of the year. More big PlayStation 4 games are on their way, and not to mention the PlayStation 5 launch, and so we wanted to take a quick look back at what...

  • Poll Would You Still Pay for PS Plus if Online Multiplayer Was Free Elsewhere?

    Paradigm shift

    There are intensifying rumours that Microsoft is planning to scrap the multiplayer paywall on its Xbox consoles, meaning that you wouldn’t need to pay a subscription fee to play online. It’d be a bold move considering the Redmond firm was the first to introduce such a scheme on consoles, but would it impact your relationship with...

  • Poll Did You Buy Ghost of Tsushima?

    Greetings, samurai

The latter has just released on Sony's current-gen console, and as always, we're here to ask...

  • Poll Would You Pay $70 for a Brand New PS5 Game?

    Making the investment

    Over the past week or so, the price of games has once again become a major topic of discussion. Sparked by the next-gen NBA 2K21, the basketball simulator plans to charge its users $69.99 for a copy of the game on PlayStation 5. This is, of course, a $10 increase over what consumers have come to expect out of major AAA titles...

  • Poll Which Version of the PS5 Do You Plan to Buy?

    To physical or not to physical

    That there are two versions of the PlayStation 5 came as a bit of a shock, and it’s something we haven’t really discussed yet. Unlike what’s being rumoured for Xbox – that is two disparate models, with a more affordable alternative to the Xbox Series X still to be announced – Sony’s essentially unveiled two...

  • Poll What Is Your Preferred Game Length?

    Finding the sweet spot

    What is your preferred game length? Obviously, it’s hard to pin a uniform number on this question as it depends on the context; RPGs generally take longer to complete than your average character action game, but at what point do you feel like you’re getting value for money? Do you like your titles to clock in with 50 hour...

  • Poll Did You Buy The Last of Us 2?

    Can't be for nothing

  • Poll Did You Miss E3 2020 Last Week?

    The world turns without convention

    Believe it or not, last week should have been E3 2020. The show was cancelled due to coronavirus, of course, but incredibly the global pandemic was the least of its problems.

    Plus or minus?

    Well that was a bit of a wild ride, wasn't it? First Marvel's Spider-Man was rumoured to be a PlayStation Plus game for June, but as we warned, the speculation was based on a known PlayStation Store bug, and it came to nothing.

  • Poll Are You Happy with the Way Sony Is Handling the PS5 Reveal?

    Patience is a virtue?

  • Poll How Much Do 'True' Gameplay Trailers Matter to You?

    No bullsh*t

    Following Microsoft's Xbox Series X stream, in which it promised a first look at next-gen gameplay, a discussion surrounding trailers has erupted.

    February 2020's PlayStation Plus games have been revealed. Subscribers are actually getting three PlayStation 4 games instead of two, but one of them does require PlayStation VR.

  • Poll How Much Does PS5 Backwards Compatibility Matter to You?

    Jumping ship

    Is Sony right to miss out on E3 for the second year in a row? The Japanese giant announced overnight that it won't be attending E3 2020, saying that the Los Angeles event simply isn't the right venue for PlayStation 5. The company's statement comes across as somewhat prickly, but it's been reasonably clear for a while now that there's...

  • Poll What PS5 Box Design Should Sony Adopt?

    Make a case

    Here’s food for thought: what design will the PlayStation 5’s boxes adopt? We already know that the device will include a Blu-ray player, so it’s unlikely you should expect a different shape or size of case to the PlayStation 4 – it’s not like it will have to accommodate Nintendo Switch-sized cartridges all of a sudden, for...
