Here's what God of War 3 looks like on PS4


Yep, it's God of War
Jul 07
// Chris Carter
I managed to get my hands on God of War III Remastered, which is still set to debut on PS4 on July 14. If you're curious, it's basically the same game, just with smoother and enhanced visuals. The original was already pretty...

Bloodborne patch 1.05 brings more co-op improvements


Stat scaling for password matches

The next patch for Bloodborne (1.05) is suitably cryptic and intriguing. It's going to further tweak cooperative play as well as provide the usual undisclosed fixes and matchmaking improvements. If a player uses the Beckonin...

While I have my reservations about the Shenmue 3 Kickstarter, which is still not even halfway towards a "true open world," folks have thrown money at it with aplomb. Over the weekend, perhaps spurred by a false sense of freed...

Watch Sony's Shuhei Yoshida fight one of Bloodborne's hardest bosses


Yosp vs. the Defiled Watchdog
Jul 04
// Kyle MacGregor
SCE Worldwide Studios boss Shuhei Yoshida is just the best. Unlike many executives around the industry (who may as well be selling soap), you can really tell gaming is close to Yoshida's heart. Case in point: Yoshida is a mas...

Video of rare Sony Super Nintendo prototype


SSNES? Nintendo PlayStation? SNES-CD?
Jul 03
// Steven Hansen
Just in case you weren't impressed by a few pictures of what is allegedly one of a small number of prototypes units developed by Sony for Nintendo prior to Nintendo's surprise partnership with Phillips. And so birthed the PlayStation, all praises to it. I like SSNES for its snakey sound, but Nintendo would never go for that, obviously.

Many of you will have heard the stories of a Sony and Nintendo crossover console that never was. Nintendo wanted a CD drive add-on for the SNES and initially approached Sony about making it. The deals never worked out and Son...

There are four PS4 games in July's PlayStation Plus lineup


And, sweet, Geometry Wars 3 for Vita
Jul 01

I feel like a digital hoarder with PlayStation Plus. So much stuff I don't need and never will. But I do need Rain, that game about a boy who is invisible unless he's in rain. Missed that back in 2013 and haven't given it any...

Oh how the tides have changed. This time last generation, Sony was really struggling to keep up with the Wii or the Xbox with the PlayStation 3. But look at it now! (Almost) world domination! VG247 has reported that the ...

But if I'm here...and you're here...who's driving the boat?! Tetsuya Nomura is directing the Final Fantasy VII remake, and he's already talked about ways in which it will differ from the 1997 original aside from just the visu...

The Last Guardian went silent because of Sony, not Team ICO

The Last Guardian dropped off the face of the earth for a few years, didn’t it? Well, turns out that may have been less Team ICO’s Fumito Ueda’s decision and more due to behind the scenes decisions at Sony. ...

For most of us, that limited-edition 20th anniversary PlayStation 4 was something to look at and nothing more. Sony didn't produce enough of them to meet demand. But at least with the controller, we're getting a second chance...

Shenmue 3 needs $10 million for a true open world


What are we really getting at what cost?
Jun 22

Shenmue 3's existence is pretty neat. Its presence on a major publisher's stage show to hock a Kickstarter is less neat, to me. Obviously the $2 million goal (and $3.5 million raised at time of writing) would not be enough fo...

Tearaway was one of the few games to take complete advantage of the Vita's extra features, smartly tying all of them into the narrative. Thus, porting it to the PlayStation 4 feels a bit odd. Apparently one way Tearaway Unfo...

My favorite Morpheus game so far is RIGS

Jun 22 // Jordan Devore
Combat isn't anything new for the genre, but after you take enough people out and pick up orbs from fallen foes, you're put into an overdrive mode. It's at this point you need to make a mad dash toward the top of the map where there are ramps leading up to a giant hoop. Jump down through the goal as if you were a basketball to score, but watch out for incoming fire and melee attacks. If and when your mech is destroyed, you'll eject and skyrocket to the top of the map. You can take in the scenery, or get straight back into the action by looking at one of a few colored spawn points and confirming with a button press. Given the immersion of VR, free-falling felt awesome. Had the game just been standard team-based combat centered on blowing up mechs, I wouldn't have thought much of it. This mode, Power Slam, really was the best way to introduce it. RIGS won't be a compelling enough reason to own a Morpheus by itself, but it's a good starting point.

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain and virtual reality -- those were the two things, by far, I most enjoyed at this year's E3. Steven did an exceptional job of capturing the essence of the former, so now it's on me to ...

Like most reasonable people I figured I'd give the Xbox One some time in Japan. After all, the original Xbox and the 360 didn't do this bad -- but time has only made things worse for the console. According to 4Gamer, as ...

Final Fantasy VII remake will have new story bits, updated gameplay

Jun 17 // Steven Hansen
"Since we now formally revealed Kazushige Nojima’s name for the scenario, there will be more plot devices in the story, so I think you can also look forward to that," Nomura said. "if you are going to do a full remake, you have to take a different approach and make something that suits the times." I'm completely with Nomura here. A straight Final Fantasy VII remake would be fine, but I'm glad Square Enix seems to be trying to do something bold and make appropriate changes rather than end up with something like Gus van Sant's Psycho.  We may see more at Tokyo Game Show or maybe Sony's PlayStation Experience if they do another one of those Vegas shows and Square stays mum on what other platforms its coming to for a while. フルリメイク版『ファイナルファンタジーVII』&『キングダム ハーツIII』について野村哲也氏を直撃【E3 2015】[Famitsu]『FFVII』は安易なリメイクではない。『KHIII』を含めて野村哲也氏へインタビュー【E3 2015】[Dengeki Online]The Final Fantasy VII Remake Won't Be Exactly the Same [Kotaku]
