    Tomorrow is in your hands?

    Sony has filed a patent for a curious new cartridge in Brazil, raising speculation about the nature of the product it’s designed for.

  • News Horizon: Zero Dawn 2 Will Probably Have the Best Foliage on PS5

    Park life

    Have you seen Death Stranding? It’s arguably the best looking game on the PlayStation 4, and it shows how far the Decima Engine has come since the release of Horizon: Zero Dawn a couple of years ago. Of course, a sequel to Aloy’s inaugural outing is almost certainly in the offing for the PlayStation 5, and you should expect it to look...

  • News Diablo 4 and Overwatch 2 Are Almost Certainly PS5 Games

    Blizzard doesn't know when they'll launch

    Blizzcon 2019 lifted the lid on two of Blizzard's biggest upcoming games this past weekend -- Diablo 4 and Overwatch 2.

  • News Sony Is Looking to Make Even More Studio Acquisitions Ahead of PS5

    Insomniac was just the start

    Studio acquisitions are all the rage nowadays.

It looks like that's just the beginning for the PlayStation brand, however, as...

  • Poll Should Sony Follow Xbox and Offer a PS5 Upgrade Option?

    Stepping up

    Current-gen console sales are slowing, as evidenced by the latest batch of NPD reports in the United States. This is entirely natural, of course: Sony’s already said that the PlayStation 5 is coming next holiday, so there’ll be a sizeable percentage of potential buyers waiting for the new hardware to drop. Microsoft, however, has an...

    There's far too much smoke in the air when it comes to Sony and Remedy for there not to be something in the works.

  • Poll Do You Still Want Ghost of Tsushima to Release on PS4?

    A feudal feud

    Ghost of Tsushima is the last major PlayStation 4 exclusive on the horizon – or is it?

  • Soapbox Why PS5's Reveal Event Will Rival E3 2015

    God level

    Nothing will ever top the Holy Trifecta™ – ever. That triple-punch of The Last Guardian, Final Fantasy VII Remake, and Shenmue III is the kind of thing that legends are made of; I’ll be telling my grandchildren about it, and I expect them to tell their grandchildren as well. E3 2015, as I wrote at the time, was the greatest gaming...
