News Ape Escape, Syphon Filter 1 Updated with 60Hz NTSC Mode in Europe on PS5, PS4
When Sony began introducing retro games to PS5 and PS4 with its PS Plus Premium service, fans in Europe were disappointed to find they're the PAL versions. This means they run at 50Hz, while the American NTSC versions run much more smoothly at 60Hz. The company said it would resolve this oversight, and it looks like we're finally...
Review Ape Escape (PS1) - Monkeying Around in 3D Platforming Pioneer Is Still a Blast
Video games went through a super exciting period in the late 90s. The introduction of a third dimension, championed by the PS1, presented a broad new challenge for designers. How can you comfortably control a character in 3D? It's widely recognised that Super Mario 64 pretty much nailed it first try, but there are other games from that...
Random Fan Made Ape Escape Demo Has Us Pining for PS5 Remake
Sony doesn't appear to be in any rush to bring back Ape Escape, does it? One of the company's classic franchises, it's beloved by fans of a certain age. It's arguably been replaced these days by Astro Bot, a character who's proven very popular with PlayStation 5's Astro's Playroom, but hope for Ape Escape to return is clearly still...
Rumour Is This Ape Escape Twitter Account Hinting at a New Game in 2020?
The Ape Escape series has eluded PlayStation consoles for a long time now, and fans have been crying out for a revival. We haven't seen a game starring those puny primates since that PlayStation Move title in 2011, and even that wasn't quite the real deal. As with many of Sony's legacy IPs, Ape Escape seems to have been locked away in the...

News Fans Are Freakin' Out As Ape Escape's Website Just Updated
Sony has no shortage of dormant intellectual properties these days, but we reckon Ape Escape would sit somewhere near to the top of fans' most requested list.

Video Is PS2 Classic Ape Escape 2 Still Top Banana on PS4?
Do the monkey with us
Ape Escape 2 released on the PlayStation Store for the PS4 this week – and we've been monkeying around with it. The popular PlayStation 2 platformer definitely shows its age in the controls and presentation department, but it runs nicely on Sony's new-gen system, and the upscaled visuals actually hold up surprisingly well...
News PS2 Classic Ape Escape 2 Does the Monkey on PS4
As the great Gwen Stefani once sang: "This s*it is bananas. B-A-N-A-N-A-S." And we suppose that Ape Escape 2 is a bit bananas, seeing as it sees you attempt to scoop up monkeys with a futuristic fishing net. The second game in the series launched on the PlayStation 4 last night as part of Sony's PS2 Classics initiative, where it will...

News Just Try to Forget the Music from this Ape Escape Fury Fury Trailer
First-person net 'em up Ape Escape Fury Fury is about catching monkeys with flashing lights on their heads, but that's got nothing on the musical madness in this Tokyo Game Show trailer. It's no surprise the monkeys are so furious, it's likely caused by over-exposure to sugary game pop, so this trailer comes with a health warning...
