No, we’re not discussing Titanfall. For a while now, I think console games, or more specifically, the last generation of consoles, have been holding videogames (yes, even PC ones!) back. It’s one reason why the uptake of this newest generation of machines has been unprecedented, with a combined total of nearly 10 million PlayStation 4’s and Xbox Ones in homes already.
Pink lights, beanies and the city of rock ‘n roll. Damn, I cannot wait for Infamous: Second Son. Which is why I should hurry up and do a new order for the game after my last one got cancelled for '”abuse”. Infamous: Second Son will most likely be a lengthy game. And once the end credits roll, there’ll be more content on the way.
I don’t think we need to go through the song and dance yet again of how PlayStation Plus is a massively valuable service for anyone who has a subscription. The service has proven itself, with heaps of great games from first class studios on the PlayStation 3 so far. On the PS4 however? It hasn’t been the biggest titles so far, that have been free. Expect that to change in the future.
Did you think that Batman had a tough night in Arkham Asylum and Arkham City? Well wait until you get a load of this game where the dark knight joins forces with his greatest ally: His wheels.
It was just before the launch of the console in its native Japan that we told you Sony had sold through over 4 million black boxes. We’ve been waiting to see how much that number would change after the console’s release in its home market. The answer is : lots.
Several key moments in my life have all had one thing in common: A chainsaw was present. Whether it was dropping it from a flight of stairs on my paid-for date (BY ACCIDENT) or scaring off Yuppie kids who done come disturb me in my shack, chainsaws have and always will be an important part of my life. And now, they’re in my games.
Resolutiongate is the ridiculous term that’s ingrained in to the new console zeitgeist. the scandal has come about since news that many Xbox One games fail to hit that sweet 1080p resolution, especially when compared to the same games running on Sony’s glorious PlayStation 4. Only it looks like Sony’s console isn’t quite the 60fps, 1080p beast either. In a new bit of pixel counting, Eurogamer’s Digital Foundry revealed that Killzone: Shadowfall’s multiplayer is rendered at a resolution just higher than 720p, and still fails to maintain 60fps.
Current-gen consoles will most likely see big new releases wind down on those platforms in 2014, but they’re going to go out with one hell of a bang. One such game bring in the final hoorah is Dark Souls 2, which is strictly current-gen material. But that doesn’t mean that the software built for that game is stuck forever on older hardware.
If there’s one exclusive game that’s got PlayStation 4 owners excited, it’s inFamous: Second Son. Hold up Let me start tis again. If there are two exclusive games that have PlayStation 4 owners excited, they’re Infamous: Second Son and Ready at Dawn’s The Order: 1886. Earlier this month, thanks to previews, we got a tonne more information on the game, plus a few trailers and spliced-up B-roll footage to whet our appetites.
Usually, when a new Sony console launches, our Japanese gaming brethren get to experience it first. That was the case with PlayStation one through three, as the land of the rising Ninja Warrior obstacle course got to flaunt those devices to Western gamers. The PlayStation 4 however, launched first in several countries that weren’t Japan. But now, they finally have it.
I don’t think that words can adequately sum up just how excited I am for Infamous: Second Son. The game looked hot at E3, and it looks even better today. I’ve got so much faith in the third Infamous game, that I’ve already slapped down cash that I don’t have for it. In fact I had to use a loan to buy the game. And because I have no collateral, my knees were broken in advance. Finance!
Wow, I have a dirty mind. Once I read the "bound" part of the title, everything else they said about the game with its "deep customization" and "massive monsters" just got all jumbled up in my brain. Hmm, I wonder if that's actually making it more appealing.
Here’s an odd one. A gamer has contacted VG247 about a bug in PlayStation Plus’ trail system . According to said tipster, he’s been able to extend his free 14 day trail indefinitely, and now has PlayStation Plus until 2035 – all without spending a cent.
It is hard to get your hands on a PS4 at the moment. It's out of stock all over the world. But, we found a place that currently has some - so get get your grubby little hands on it before they're all gone!
I think it’s safe to say that gaming is a big business by now. There’s a lot of money to be made in the industry, if you play your cards right. And it looks like 2014 and beyond is going to be a gangbuster year for those companies that make it.
