12 300. That’s the number of super-duper special 20th anniversary PlayStation 4’s that were released over the course of the last week or two. 12 299 is most likely the amount of them that will be quickly off sold for a tidy profit to rabid fans wanting to own a console that few in the world would have. And Sony isn’t exactly happy about that.

Do you remember the ZX Spectrum, that personal computer that was released over three decades ago in 1982? I certainly don’t. It came out before my time, which is why everybody other than myself and Sandy (who has just started walking now. Aw bless!) recognises it. Do you yearn for those good old days when gaming was made up of literally 8 colours? You’re in luck, your childhood memories are well within reach!

It could be said that I have a bat in my console belfry. Batman: Arkham Knight is a damned pretty game, make no mistake, as it’ll most likely push current-gen systems to their limits. One thing it won’t be doing however, is setting tongues wagging as to which platform has the best version of the caped crusader, as developer Rocksteady is going for some of that console parity mojo before the game releases.

One game to find them, one game to rule them all and in the darkness bind them. Pretty much the sleeper hit of the year, Shadow Of Mordor has plenty going for it. Tolkien lore, detailed landscapes and a Nemesis System that gives the game a hefty tactical side. But is it pretty? Does it shine like Galadriel’s hair, or does it look like Gollum’s unwashed loin-cloth, my precious?

Strategy games may not be as massive as first-person shooters or tap-happy avian species being flung towards porcine enemies, but it’s a genre that isn’t going to disappear anytime soon. What you won’t see often however, are RTS titles on consoles. They’ve always been a headache to port over and create control schemes for on those platforms. But one studio reckons that they’ve cracked the conundrum.

You’ve been wondering just when Blizzard would release Diablo 3: Ultimate Evil Edition onto consoles. Well wonder no more, as it’ll be out on August 19 for the Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4. It’s Diablo 3, and the Reaper of Souls together for the first time, and it feels oh so good. Prepare to go back to hell Nephalem scum.

We often joke that PC gamers are missing out on various console-exclusive games, with discussions usually devolving into a for and against argument at the end of the day. But that initial joke runs in both directions. Sure, PC gamers don’t have access to GTA V or Killzone Shadow Fall, but console gamers are also missing out on several PC games. Like ARMA 3, which will always be on PC.

We’ve been waiting patiently for some sort of information on the release date of Microsoft’s newest console here in South Africa. We pester Microsoft pretty much daily for the information – and it’s finally here. Sort of. What we have is a release month – which as the headline would clue you in to, will be in September.

It may have cost me quite a few pretty pennies (SO PRETTY), but I’ve been damn happy with my PlayStation 4 purchase so far. It’s a great piece of technology, with some fantastic games so far. The PS4 pretty much sold out on launch weekend back in December. And now, new stock has finally arrived.

It’s not easy being Nintendo right now. Their stocks are tumbling, their profits are almost non-existent and no one is buying the Wii U. Once again, Nintendo is going to need to adapt to a new gaming climate. And the key to that evolution might be in the handheld market once again.

I love my 3DS console. A while back I was bitching non-stop that the little handheld was DOOMED, but Nintendo managed to pull the console back from irrelevancy with some solid games. It’s getting a bit old though,and a successor is no doubt on the way. And I seriously hope it looks like this concept.

Love it or hate it, plenty of folks wanted to buy themselves an Xbox One at the end of 2013, but several countries and territories had to be cut from that final shipping list in the end. For fans, that kind of sucks. And it’s something that Microsoft isn't happy about either.

I think I have battered woman syndrome when it comes to Square Enix. Back in the day, Squaresoft consistently released games that I loved. Lately, there have been a bunch of duds and weird statements from Squeenix that make question if they know what they're doing. But clearly that didn't mean any of those bad things now that they're saying good ones, right?
