    PS5 Digital Edition Vs. PS5 Disc Edition - Which Is Right For You?

    Sony has announced that it will be manufacturing two different models of the PlayStation 5. Unlike Microsoft, it’s not choosing to create two machines with different specs; rather, there will be a version of the console with a 4K Blu-ray drive, and a version with no disc drive whatsoever. Though your choice of which PS5 to buy may initially seem like a no-brainer, you might want to give it a little more thought, as there’s…

    PlayStation 5 Price, Release Date, Pre-Order Information Announced

    After many months of speculation and deliberation, we finally know exactly how much the PlayStation 5 is going to cost, as well as when it will launch and how you can pre-order it. Unfortunately, that last part is shrouded in some uncertainty right now; at time of writing, PS5 pre-orders are completely sold out on UK online stores, although checking storefronts sporadically may reward you with a chance to get your pre-order in if you’re…

    What Was Announced During The PlayStation Showcase?

    Yesterday, Sony held a showcase detailing some important things about its upcoming PlayStation 5. It was an absolutely packed presentation with some massive surprises, some expected reveals, and some new gameplay for titles we already know about. We also learned the price, release date, and pre-order information for the PlayStation 5, so all in all, Sony more than matched Microsoft’s reveal for its own Xbox Series range. We thought we’d collect some of the most…

    A PlayStation 5 Showcase Is Coming This Wednesday - Here’s What Could Be In It

    Since the PlayStation 5 was announced, we’ve been hungry for more details about the console. Our curiosity has been sated by Sony discussing the technical specs and software lineup at some length, but some questions remain surrounding the PS5; namely, when it will be released (right now, we have only a vague “holiday 2020” window to go on) and how much it will cost. Microsoft recently blinked first and revealed the cost of the Xbox…

    Analyst Predicts PS5 Will Outsell Xbox Series X And Series S Combined

    Since the PlayStation 5 was announced, we’ve had nothing but faith that it will massively outsell Microsoft’s offering. After all, with Microsoft leaning hard into PC gaming as part of its strategy and dividing its player base with two separate models (and there are rumours of a third) - each of which has different specs - it’s hard to imagine Microsoft taking the crown. Now, however, our conjecture has statistics to back it up. Surveys…

    PlayStation 5 Vs. PlayStation 4 Pro - Compared

    With the PlayStation 5 on the horizon, a very important choice presents itself to fans of Sony’s consoles: whether to plump for a PS4 Pro or whether to wait out the next agonising few months in anticipation of the new machine. We still don’t have a concrete release date from Sony for the PS5 yet, so there’s every chance you’re waiting until you know when you can get your hands on the console before you…

    Rockstar, GTA6 and PlayStation 5

    The potency of the PlayStation 5 will be clear, games will load faster and be far more detailed visually; the perfect ingredients to power Rockstar's next step in their Grand Theft Auto franchise. However, before we run ahead of ourselves, Grand Theft Auto V's success hasn't finished, it will launch on PS5 - an enhanced version that will deliver better visuals, and include new perks and features. Whilst some might take much positivity from this,…

    8 Things We Want Fixed In The Demon’s Souls Remake

    During Sony’s PlayStation 5 showcase this June, both Sony and Bluepoint Games announced a remake of 2009’s massively underrated Demon’s Souls. Speaking as huge fans of From Software’s Souls series, we’re overjoyed. Demon’s Souls doesn’t get the accolades it deserves; many of the franchise’s most iconic and recognisable elements got their start in Demon’s Souls, and it remains one of the most interesting and progressive entries in the action RPG genre, even as it’s been…

    The 10 Best PS5 Games Announced At Gamescom

    Another Gamescom has come and gone and still no mention of From Software’s ill-fated Elden Ring. Sigh. For those of us who love the Souls series and George R.R. Martin’s deconstructive fantasy style, we must wait a little longer for news tidbits. However, if you’re simply a fan of great games, you’ll have enjoyed an embarrassment of riches at Gamescom 2020. The PlayStation 5 is shaping up to be the home of the best gaming…

    Which PS4 Peripherals Are Compatible With PS5?

    When new console generations begin, one of the most pressing questions is always thus: which peripherals that I currently own will be compatible with the new machine? It’s an important question to ask. Peripherals - both first-party and third-party - can be expensive, as they’re often one of the ways console manufacturers will make money, especially now that most consoles are “loss leaders”. More and more, console manufacturers are shying away from full compatibility with…

Sony has spent the last four years developing this latest offering and we still don’t have a release date, with all this mystery and suspense the reality better be worth…

    PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds vs. Fortnite - Who Wins The Ultimate Battle Royale?

    Ask anyone who’s a big fan of battle royale games and they’ll tell you that there are only really two major contenders: PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds and Fortnite. These two games are arguably the two great colossi of the battle royale genre; while there are others, of course (most notably Apex Legends), they aren’t quite the pure distillation of the genre that these two represent. Of course, there are differences between the two titles, but you’ll tend…
