  • Watch 11 minutes of Gravity Rush 2’s gorgeous gameplay

    Debuting on the PlayStation Vita back in 2012, Gravity Rush was a pretty promising game on a less promising platform. Thankfully, the game came to the PlayStation 4 in 2015, and later this year, Sony's Japan Studio will be launching the sequel. Starring Kat and her cat once again, the game reuses the popular and rather gorgeous art style of the first title, with improved lighting effects, physics and performance tweaks. Overall, that makes for a pretty beautiful experience. This of course, is at least according to 11 minutes of gameplay published on PlayStation Access's YouTube channel today. If you're interested in...

  • No Man’s Sky: Sony’s Yoshida criticises Hello Games’ PR strategy

    Sony is slowly distancing itself from the No Man's Sky aftermath, that's at least according to comments made by Sony Studios' president Shuhei Yoshida. Speaking to Eurogamer at the Tokyo Game Show, Yoshida criticised the head of Hello Games Sean Murray for promising more than the developer could deliver. "It wasn't a great PR strategy , because he didn't have a PR person helping him, and in the end he is an indie developer," he explains. "I understand some of the criticisms especially Sean Murray is getting, because he sounded like he was promising more features in the game from...

  • The Last Guardian delayed yet again

    Who didn't see this coming? The Last Guardian -- a game that was announced in 2009 -- has been delayed again. At least, this time, it's only for a few months. Announced earlier today on the US PlayStation Blog, president of SCE Worldwide Studios, Shuhei Yoshida, writes: "The Last Guardian development team is fast approaching major milestones in production and has made the tough decision to delay the release of The Last Guardian a few weeks. The Last Guardian will launch on December 6, 2016." This will be a blow to fans who've been waiting all of these years to play the...

  • Bethesda: Sony blocking mods for Fallout 4, Skyrim on PlayStation 4

    According to a new statement by Bethesda, Sony has barred the developer from enabling user mods on the PlayStation 4 for Fallout 4 and Skyrim. The statement published by the developer reveals that the Japanese console maker "will not approve user mods the way they should work: where users can do anything they want for either Fallout 4 or Skyrim Special Edition". "Like you, we are disappointed by Sony's decision given the considerable time and effort we have put into this project, and the amount of time our fans have waited for mod support to arrive," Bethesda continues. According to Bethesda, Sony is...

  • PlayStation Store vs Xbox Store: not all game prices are created equal

    Brand new titles are usually priced identically on Xbox Store and the PlayStation Store, it seems that older games don't follow the same trend. In fact, we found some titles that yielded some incredibly interesting price discrepancies across the platforms. There is a Recommended Retail Price (RRP) that most stores stick to, though it's not set in stone with SA law. Both the Xbox Store and PlayStation Store usually uphold these prices on their own digital platforms as to not upset stores selling physical copies. For this piece, we have excluded physical copies of games, special editions, and bundles --...

  • South Park, Mafia & Dishonored: 5 games yet to come in 2016

    So far, 2016 has provided us with a decent array of gaming titles to indulge in. From the prehistoric wilderness of Far Cry: Primal (review) to the beautifully minimalistic cityscape of Mirror's Edge Catalyst (review), we've been treated to hours upon hours of quality gaming. But what's done is done and while we are eternally grateful for these experiences, as gamers we cannot help but wonder what the future landscape of gaming has in store for us. Well, by the looks of it, 2016 still has a lot of digital adventures for us to undertake and the best might still be on the...

  • No Man’s Sky [PS4] review: infinite bore-fare

    I'm over 20 hours into No Man’s Sky's deep, dark universe and I’m still as lost as I was when I first started. I’m perfectly fine with that. No Man's Sky is a space exploration game that allows you find countless galaxies, and over 18-quintillion randomly-generated planets. Your main mission of the game? There isn't really any, but you are chiefly  encouraged to find the centre of your galaxy. No Man's Sky isn't a game that will baby you with tutorials but offers you just enough help to not feel like a newborn. The game's beautiful and vast world truly makes you...

  • Update: 90% of No Man’s Sky’s PlayStation 4 issues fixed thus far

    Update, 24 August 2016, 11.30am: Hello Games has taken to its Twitter account to finally explain the mass of No Man's Sky updates that have hit the PlayStation 4 this week. The British developer explains that PlayStation 4 crash dumps -- sent to the developer whenever the title blue screens the console -- have helped it solve some 87% of reported issues with patches 1.05 and 1.06. If a PS4 crashes, it sends us a crash dump. Over the last week since the game came out we categorised and fixed these in order of priority. — Hello Games (@hellogames) August 24, 2016 "This...
