Bring on the freakers
Don't you just love this trend of game developers posting cool crossover art to help celebrate the work of their pals? This time, we've got inFAMOUS developer Sucker Punch throwing out a Ghost of Tsushima and Days Gone mashup over on Twitter. It shows the former's main character, Jin, standing back to back with the latter's...
Better believe it
The assumption among PlayStation fans is that Sony Bend's unannounced PlayStation 4 exclusive will be revealed at PlayStation Experience next month – and senior technical game designer Eric Jensen may have added a little more fuel to that fire. Writing on Twitter overnight, the veteran employee said: "Hotel booked for PSX. It's...
And it's awesome, apparently
Sony Bend has been a part of the Worldwide Studios furniture for a long time, creating franchises such as Syphon Filter, while also expanding upon existing ones like Resistance. However, ever since the release of Uncharted: Golden Abyss, the company has been quiet. The question on everyone's lips, then, is just what is...
Shuhei Yoshida chimes in
Perhaps the best thing about Sony's big E3 2015 press conference this week is that, while the Japanese giant revealed enough to sate its rabid fanbase, it also kept a fair amount in the locker. One such game that remains unannounced is the latest from Uncharted: Golden Abyss developer Sony Bend – and speaking on a...
Naughty Dog apparently nixed new Uncharted, too
In an interview at GamesCom over a year ago, Sucker Punch veteran Nate Fox seemed to suggest that an inFAMOUS game was in production for the PlayStation Vita. Now, as part of a sequence of posts on Reddit, ex-Sony
Will push next-gen system somewhere it's never been before
We've known that Uncharted: Golden Abyss developer Sony Bend has been working on a PlayStation 4 title for some time, but it sounds like the project is about to go into full production. As part of a recruitment feature on Gamasutra, the first-party outfit has revealed a little more about...
How Logan you go?
Uncharted: Golden Abyss developer Sony Bend is working on a PlayStation 4 title, and a job listing uncovered by the ever observant DualShockers.com may have shed a little light on what we can expect. During the platform holder’s next-gen launch event late last year,
Yoshida too scared to say anything about Sony Santa Monica
Uncharted PS4 aside, there weren’t many outrageous announcements during Sony’s big PS4 All Access launch livestream this week. However, one interesting snippet focused on Sony Worldwide Studios president Shuhei Yoshida, in which he was asked to give a one-word summary of some of the...
Many would argue that the Uncharted series doesn't need multiplayer
As such, no one's going to ding PlayStation Vita launch title, Uncharted: Golden Abyss, for not including some head-to-head action. That said, we're quite big on Uncharted's online action — especially in co-op — and we certainly wouldn't say no to some form of multiplayer mode in Drake's upcoming portable adventure. Despite the..
Those that have the patience to peruse the ESRB's website nearly always get their reward: a shiny, sparkling exclusive story
Beware though, budding ESRB watchers, for an expert lurks amongst us. Having had mere minutes to revel in the glory of its Grand Theft Auto discoveries, the wonderfully attentive Siliconera's uncovered another gem pertaining to Sony's upcoming mobile strategy: popular PSP..
Few would argue that 2011 was one of the best years for exclusive PlayStation software
The growth of Sony's Worldwide Studios resulted in a new blockbuster release for almost every month of the year; a feat that was always going to be difficult to replicate in 2012. But while 2012 might not live up to its predecessor in terms of pure content quantity, we're certain Sony's still got a surprise or..
Uncharted: Golden Abyss has gotten a bizarre build-up for an Uncharted game
Overshadowed by the launch of a new piece of hardware, we haven't really been privy to all of the story details and behind the scenes footage that usually accompanies an Uncharted launch. But at least we've gotten this video of Nolan North (Nathan Drake) and Richard McGonagle (Sully) pretending to paddle a canoe. The word..
Lovable PlayStation executive, Shuhei Yoshida, has revealed that Uncharted: Golden Abyss and Everybody's Golf are the two most popular titles in the PlayStation Vita's Japanese launch line-up
"We collect data from retailers taking pre-orders and we know that Everybody's Golf is the most popular and Uncharted: Golden Abyss is number two. I'm very proud that they are both Worldwide Studios..
Worried upcoming PlayStation Vita launch title, Uncharted: Golden Abyss, was going to be over in the blink of an eye? Don't
Sony Bend writer John Garvin has reportedly told NowGamer that the handheld title will be the longest in the franchise's history, lasting upwards of ten hours on a first playthrough. Discussing the challenges of bringing Naughty Dog's series to the PlayStation Vita, Garvin..
Following a successful launch for Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception, Japan seems pumped to get its hands on upcoming portable outing Uncharted: Golden Abyss
The Sony Bend developed exclusive won a poll conducted by Japanese gaming bible Famitsu magazine, which also noted that more than 50% of readers intend to buy the system at launch. Just 8.2% of readers said they have no plans to buy Sony's new..
Some things go together perfectly: bread and butter, fish and chips, cheese and pineapple
.. You get the idea. Uncharted and Nolan North is one of those things, so it's jarring sitting through footage of the adventure game without the well-timed quips of the video game industries most recognisable voice actor. But if you want to catch a glimpse of the upcoming Uncharted: Golden Abyss, you're going..
The PSPgo was an experiment
It came about at a time when players clamoured for digital media on their handheld platform. Such enthusiasm quickly vanished, and the PSPgo concluded a failed experiment. But Sony's learned from that experience, and subsequently its not shunning packaged media for its new handheld platform. We believe, for some consumers, the time is , but for other consumers, the..
Syphon Filter's been out of the spot-light for some time
Once a mega franchise in the original PlayStation's arsenal, the series trundled through the PSP and PS2 era with some impressive but overlooked releases. But according to Official PlayStation Magazine, franchise creator Sony Bend is lining up a new entry in the series once it's done with Uncharted: Golden Abyss. According to the publication,..
Sony's released footage of its entire Uncharted: Golden Abyss TGS demonstration
Needless to say the game looks absolutely cream-crackers. Miserable critics will probably be able to find ways to put the portable title down — the lighting is certainly a bit softer than in the PS3 versions of Uncharted — but otherwise we'd argue that Golden Abyss actually looks better than the majority of..
It's at this stage of a platform launch build-up that everybody gets a bit crazy, desperately looking for screenshots and video footage of said system in action
With the PlayStation Vita launch still some way away, anticipation is transforming into desperation. The crazy (and super smart) people at NeoGAF have collected together a massive library of screenshots, showcasing the PlayStation Vita's..

Uncharted is arguably the most important franchise in Sony's roster at the moment
Not only is it a critical and commercial success for the platform holder, the franchise is also an industry leader. Uncharted is continuously setting a precedent for other developers to follow — it's influential. Uncharted: Golden Abyss aims to take that influence...

Gaming blog Ripten reckons it knows the final name of Uncharted NGP Vita
The blog claims that the Sony Bend developed prequel will be known as Uncharted: Golden Abyss, which sounds perfectly reasonable to us. Ripten also reckons it has confirmation of the PSVita name via a trusted source, but then we already knew that didn't we?
More Uncharted NGP details are on the way
That's according to a report on Joystiq which corrects some inaccurate reports from earlier in the week. Remember when we said that Uncharted NGP was set between the first two games. We were wrong — it's actually a prequel. "It is an all-new story set before Uncharted: Drake's Fortune," Sony told
E3 is getting closer, and after a couple of months of silence, we're starting to hear little trickles of information about the NGP again
News coming out of France this afternoon has shed some light on the upcoming Uncharted NGP. The game, which is in development at Sony Bend, is said to be set between the events of Uncharted: Drake's Fortune and Uncharted 2: Among Thieves. More excitingly, Naughty..
Naughty Dog are not working on the Uncharted game for Sony's new portable
They are however working on Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception for PlayStation 3. So what gives? Were a one game studio so it would be very challenging for us, Naughty Dog's community manager, Arne Meyer, told EGTV. I know a long time ago we had looked at trying to do that as well, but its really about what makes sense..
Naughty Dog's reassured fans that they are set to work hard with developers Sony Bend to ensure Uncharted NGP is a "great addition to the franchise"
Speaking at London's PlayStation Experience event, Naughty Dog revealed they are collaborating with Sony Bend to make sure the game lives up to the quality of the series. "We're not actually developing Uncharted on NGP," Naughty dog community..
It probably got slightly overlooked in the carnage of this morning's Next Generation Portable announcement, but Sony announced a new Uncharted game this morning
The game's set to be a fresh spin-off of the Uncharted franchise (not a port) and is in development at Sony Bend. (Told you so.) We've been lead to believe that Naughty Dog are overlooking...
If the PS2 re-release of 2007's Playstation Portable title Syphon Filter: Logan's Shadow wasn't a hint at the re-emergance of the Syphon Filter franchise, an upcoming PSN digital comic probably is
But first, the former: Sony Bend's just been on the Playstation Blog to announce that Syphon Filter: Logan's Shadow will be making the jump to PS2 this...
Oh PCB Productions
How you have broken our hearts. After listing Syphon Filter 5 and more recently SOCOM 4 in the credits section of their website many believed the reality of new games in the popular franchises being under development. Alas, they are not."I apologize for the confusion. There appears to be some errors on our credits," said a PCB rep. "Syphon Filter: Dark Mirror was..
It seems odd crowning Resistance Retribution, a game not developed by series creator Insomniac Games, as the best in the series
However we are fastly being converted to the idea that the PSP iteration of the popular shooter really is the best in the series. Yesterday we gave the game 4 Squares in our review. Naturally, the multiplayer doesn't...
Sony Bend, the team currently putting the finishing touches to Resistance Retribution, may well be working on a next-generation version of Syphon Filter
According to multiple sources, the team responsible for every Syphon Filter to date have been looking for a full-time programmer who has PS3 experience. "Means nothing," you may scoff. And we agreed until we also found out about a "
We're big fans of the Resistance series
We thoroughly enjoyed the slow-paced gameplay of Fall Of Man and loved the scale of Resistance 2. Hearing that the series was making it's way to the PSP we were mildly excited but somewhat sceptical. How the hell can they port a game like Resistance to the PSP? It's been done with mixed response. Resistance...
Meet Grayson and a host of new characters in this story trailer for upcoming PSP shooter Resistance Retribution
Colour us pretty darned excited for this one. Check out the video in higher quality here.
You may have heard that if you own a copy of Resistance 2 and upcoming PSP title Resistance Retribution you'll be able to "infect" your copy of the PSP game
But what difference does the infected mode have on the game? GameTrailers have a knocked up a video to show you. Remember, those who "infect" their copy of the PSP game will also be able to play the game with a DualShock 3..
