Knack 2 accidentally available for free on Aussie PSN Store

While I’m sure most of you out there are gearing up to jump into Destiny 2 today, anyone who was holding out for Knack 2 have been treated to a surprise: it’s currently listed as free on the PSN Store. We tested it ourselves, and once you complete your cart transaction of zero dollars, a download of the full 35gb of Knack 2 begins, so it’s definitely not the demo. No word from So...[Read More]

Nioh does the whole multi-tiered console thing right

Many of you out there probably think I’ve been waging a one man war against Sony’s mid-generation upgrade to the Playstation 4, the PS4 Pro. I mean, I’ve written cynically about it enough. I rambled my concerns of newer titles performing poorly on the base console pretty much immediately after rumours of the “PS4K” started doing the rounds last March. Once both Sony a...[Read More]

Horizon: Zero Dawn developers talk moving from linear shooters to open-world RPGs

Horizon: Zero Dawn, the Playstation 4 exclusive Sony has been showing off for quite some time now, is just around the corner so pretty soon we’ll all be running around developer Guerrilla Games’ post apocalyptic, robot dinosaur infested world.

So that fake-looking PS4 Slim could actually be real

I really want to emphasise the word could in that headline, because despite some compelling new evidence, there’s still a chance the Playstation 4 Slim doing the internet rounds lately could be completely bogus. As we learned from those photos of fake Nintendo NX controllers from a couple months back, people are jerks who like being faking jerky-jerks who fake things because they’re je...[Read More]

No Man’s inconsistencies

So No Man’s Sky is a game, right? We can agree on that? In my review I was pretty meh on the whole thing. It has a lot going for it, but it’s so bogged down by questionable design choices that it suffers from tedious gameplay and a lacklustre experience, in my opinion at least. Part of the reason I was so underwhelmed is due to the sheer ball crushing amount of hype that clung to this ...[Read More]

The perfect WTF moment from Sony at Gamescom

For those of you who might not have noticed, Gamescom is well and truly underway. Much like with E3, major players in the vidy0g@m3 industry have been releasing exciting new titles, well mostly exciting titles. In a surprise move Sony unleashed a reveal trailer for Solbrain Knight of Darkness, which is out now on the PS Store for our North American friends. And, well, the game kinda of looks like ...[Read More]

No Man’s Sky review: Ground control to major disappointment

Reviewed on: PS4. Copy supplied by publisher. In my 12 hours of game time I’ve found No Man’s Sky to be equal parts compelling and boring, some aspects of it are amazing, and others are a galactic snore fest. Arguably the sheer amount of hype after years of anticipation, mixed with the lack of any concrete info in the build up, let minds run wild as to what No Man’s Sky could be....[Read More]

Sony confirms Playstation 4.5 is real

At least some of the rumours are true, Sony is indeed developing a Playstation 4.5 as originally reported back in March. Playstation chief Andrew House confirmed the news to the Financial Times, saying the console will support 4K resolutions but stopped short of revealing whether or not it will sport the kind of hardware changes leaked by GiantBomb earlier this year. “[The PS4.5] is intended...[Read More]

How God of War 4 being set in Norse mythology could work
