  • Weirdness These PlayStation Sound Effect Acapellas Are Oddly Awesome

    Sounds good

    Each PlayStation startup sound has defined a generation, so it’s bizarre to see them performed acapella by YouTube group Maytree. From the bowel rumbling bass of the PS1’s intro all the way through to the PSP’s upbeat jingle, this is both spot-on and strange. It’s particularly amusing to see just how much energy is being invested...

    Aw sh*t, here we go again

    The rumour that Rockstar is remastering the PlayStation 2’s trilogy of Grand Theft Auto games for PlayStation 5 and PS4 last week had a profound impact on me: I simply had to return to the fictional state of San Andreas. My history with the 2004 open world is both fortuitous and a little bit embarrassing actually: despite...

  • News Metal Gear Solid 2 Looks Better Than Ever in 4K Upscaled Trailer

    Digital Foundry works its magic

    Yeah, the Nintendo Switch is cool and all, but have you ever played a portable PlayStation 2?

This hobby project named the PS2 Eclipse by GingerofOz can,...


  • Random PS2 Game Boxes Were Nearly Extremely Weird

    Look at this thing

    PlayStation games have always come in pretty ordinary boxes. The PS1 had its CD-like jewel cases, the PS2 kept things standard with a DVD box, PS3 shrunk things a little to match standard Blu-Ray releases, and it's been roughly the same since. Aside from its handheld machines, Sony's consoles have stuck to pretty regular game...

    A sad reality

    PlayStation 5 can, in fact, play a handful of PlayStation 2 titles – but only ones that were ported to the PlayStation 4, like Jak & Daxter and Grand Theft Auto 3. Bizarrely, the Xbox Series X|S can play retro PlayStation titles much better – at least, until the inevitable batch of cease and desist letters get posted out...
