The Playstation 4 is out now in Europe, and soon in SA, marking the end of the PS3 era. It’s been a great ride for the Sony fat boy since it arrived in 2006, following the 2005 launch of the Xbox 360. That’s a console generation of 8 years. And the latest one could be much shorter.
I don't know why, but I really like the idea of a Steam Machine. Maybe it's because I'm into any device that lets me play games, or maybe because I'd really love to get through my Steam backlog from the comfort of my couch. Regardless, iBuyPower has made a prototype of a Steam Machine and it's looking pretty sexy.
In an attempt to get all the local hits, I recently imported a PS4 console for review because we couldn’t wait to get a pizza the action. I was expecting something less tasty.
Mark Rubin, the Executive Producer of Call of Duty: Ghosts has forgotten how twitter works and has posted up a wall of text using one of those annoying twitlonger things… but I’m glad he did because he had some great news for us.
I’ll be honest. Some days, I’ll be playing a game and I’ll wonder…what would Marcus Fenix look like with a head the size of an original Playstation 3 console? You don’t get cheat codes in video games these days. But GTA V has quite a few of them.
Looks like that story from yesterday was bang on the money. Assassin’s Creed: Liberation will be making a jump from handheld to High definition next year. And it’ll have some mobile company along for the ride.
We’ve actually already reviewed Diablo 3 way back in early 2012 before our nice new site redesign and before Garth abandoned us for print *spit* media. As such I’m not going to review the entire game again as the story and basic game is exactly the same; but things have changed in this console release.
Even though it’ll be out on our side of the hemisphere in 2014, that doesn’t mean that the Xbox One isn’t coming this year. The US of A, UK and other nations of the world will be getting their hands on the console way before us. Details after the jump.
I think it’s pretty safe to say that people are psyched for the next chapter in XCOM. A new trailer yesterday showed off some of the new agents you’ll be fielding, from war machines to mutants, and Enemy Within is looking pretty massive. So massive in fact, that it could not just be released as mere DLC on console according to its developers.
Update 2: I (Gavin) have spoken to Ramone Pickover from kalahari.com about this odd pricing. Unfortunately there is no secret subversive marketing going on and the truth is far less entertaining. They have recently upgraded the engine that powers the site and are currently experiencing some gremlins in the software. The price for the PS4 is R6299 and there are no plans of that being cut anytime soon. However you may see the kalahari price change again and IF you complete your checkout before it reverts they will honour that price.
So I suggest camping out on that page waiting for the magical R50 price tag to appear.
Update: And it's back to normal...again. Even quicker than the last time as well. Update ends.
Who wants a Playstation 4? It’s pretty much your only choice of locally available next-gen gaming, unless you want to go through the hassle of ordering online from overseas and paying customs charges. Well here’s another special for you that has just popped up.
Man, I hope you guys are getting a decent bonus this year. Hot off the news that the Playstation 4 will be arriving on December 6, comes word from ITF Gaming that the console has a current RRP of R6299. That’s plenty of moolah. Fortunately, you only need one kidney to live.
If you’re a Castlevania fan, then there’s a good chance that you’ve played a game in the series based on the Symphony of the Night model of vampire-stakin’. After all, there’s years worth of games based on that style. Last year’s Mirror of Fate though, was a successful blend between old and new Castlevania games. And now, it’s headed to console.
Ah the beautiful game. Football, the sport where every single recorded kick in the history of that Eureufa Championship or something massively matters to someone. And pretty soon, it just might be the lead game for the Xbox One.
24 hours ago we told you about GameStop selling out of their pre-orders and now it’s 'turn to announce they can no longer guarantee day-one delivery of your Xbox One or PlayStation 4.
Gentlemen, it’s time to put the big boy pants on and decide. While most of you may be ready to cast your vote as to which console you’ll be buying, the line between that nefarious machinery and the almighty PC has been drawn in the sand. The time for choosing…is now!
