After Two Months Of Switch At No. 1, PS4 Leads US Hardware Sales In May

The NPD Group has released its monthly sales report for the United States in May, and the PlayStation 4 came out as the month’s top-selling hardware. That puts an end to a brief run by the Nintendo Switch, which had been the top seller in its first two months on the market. As is the norm, we didn’t get exact sales figures, so it’s unclear exactly how much the PS4 topped Switch by; Switch had …

E3 2017 – Monster Hunter World Preview (PS4) – PSLS

As someone who put a lot of time into the recent Monster Hunter games for Nintendo 3DS, there was always one thought in the back of my mind that kept me from feeling like I was getting the best experience possible. From the fluidity of the gameplay to the cool monsters I was fighting, it seemed like every aspect could’ve been better if it was on a console instead of a handheld. I got my wish, and …

Complete Remake With PS4 Assets

When Shadow of the Colossus was shown during Sony’s E3 press conference, we were left wondering the title would be a remaster or a complete remake. Shadow of the Colossus is originally a PS2 title that was then remastered for the PS3. Basically, the game received a boosted resolution but still kept the PS2-era assets for the PS3. Luckily, the PS4 version will instead be a full-blown remake, created from the ground up for the …

Nex Machina Review – Jarvis Approved (PS4) – PSLS

Looking back upon Finnish indie developer Housemarque’s titles, it’s clear that the studio always held designer Eugene Jarvis in high regard. After all, their hit PlayStation 4 launch title Resogun was practically an HD version of Defender. That’s why it’s so cool to see the developer actually collaborate with the legendary game designer on Nex Machina, a twin-stick shooter in the vein of Jarvis’ Robotron: 2084 and Smash TV. Like classic twin-stick shooters, the core action in Nex Machina is as simple …

The Xbox One X and PS4 Pro prove the old console cycle is dead

For almost all of console gaming history, a game’s graphics were written in stone. Barring remakes and re-releases, Mario 64, Final Fantasy VII, Chrono Trigger, etc, look the same to everyone playing. Unlike PCs, where visual fidelity correlates strongly with your rig (and wallet), consoles democratized the gaming experience. The PS4 Pro and Xbox One X change all that. For the first time, console gamers have the option to play the same games with better …

All PS4 exclusives coming in 2018 will release in the first half of the year

Many of the game’s Sony showed at its E3 press conference lacked concrete release dates, opting instead for the vague “2018” target. Sony’s E3 2017 showcase was criticised for a number of reasons. It was shorter than usual, featured no surprises, and was largely devoid of updated release dates for previously announced titles. Days Gone, God of War, Detroit: Become Human, and Spider-Man were all billed as 2018 games, but you had to go digging …

This PS4 Theme Is a New Low

Look at this monstrosity. Just look at it. Virtual tat just doesn’t get any worse than this, does it? Spotted on the North American PlayStation Store by the ever-aware Wario64, this disgusting dynamic PlayStation 4 theme is quite possibly the worst that’s ever been made available. Quite the achievement when you look at some of the other horrors currently for sale.

Let 11 bit studios Know You Want Frostpunk PS4

Frostpunk is not a PlayStation 4 game, at least not yet. I didn’t know this when I sat down to demo the heart wrenching city builder by the developer behind This War of Mine. I watched the whole presentation from lead designer Jakub Stokalski with rapt attention, wanting to delve further into the dark core of the hard decisions that need to be made. When it was all over I could only rattle out a …
