    8k TVs And The PS5: The Upcoming Gaming Resolution?

    There are, broadly speaking, two components to gaming: the actual machine on which we game, and the setup we use to view and hear our experience. The home entertainment system you use to play your games is arguably just as important as the machine you’re actually playing the games on, because without a good home entertainment system you won’t get the intended experience. It’s important, then, to make sure your system is giving you bang…

    Why PS5 Will Win The Next-Gen Console War

    Every console generation must have a console war. It’s been that way since consoles wormed their way into the hearts of gamers everywhere, but the console war concept really got started back in the 1990s when Sega went head-to-head with Nintendo. Since then, the titans clashing have changed - it’s Microsoft and Sony who are at loggerheads now, with Nintendo offering a less bellicose alternative on the sidelines - but we’re still at war, and…

    10 Series We’d Love To See On PS5

    Each new console generation represents an opportunity to revisit the gaming greats of old and give them a second chance. The PS4 has seen revivals of Crash Bandicoot and Spyro the Dragon and given new life to ongoing franchises like Ratchet and Clank and God of War. With that in mind, it’s worth looking forward to the upcoming PlayStation 5 and wondering what sort of games Sony could bring back in glorious 4K. Here are…

    PlayStation 5 vs. Xbox Two – Rumours

    Since 2001, when the original Xbox was released in the US, the console wars (to mix metaphors) have been a two-horse race. Nintendo’s consoles have always performed relatively well, but they haven’t been in direct competition with Sony or Microsoft for many years, instead opting to sell their consoles (Wii, Switch) as an accompaniment. You can have a Switch as well as your main console, but you probably won’t have both a PS4 and an…

    When a new console generation lands, there’s always a lot of discussion about what kind of games we can expect and what sort of infrastructure the console will have. We’ll discuss the software lineup, the multiplayer systems, and the rivalry between the two major players. Often, what gets swept by the wayside is specs; the exact technical specifications of the console and the components that will go into constructing it. In terms of the upcoming…

    PlayStation 5 – Release Date, Rumors And More

    We love our trusty PlayStation 4. From Bloodborne to The Order: 1886, we’ve had an absolute blast experiencing the ridiculously high quality of its exclusive library, sharing our games with friends (to often hilarious results) and taking in all the other sights and sounds the PS4 has to offer.

    The PS4’s Strength is why We’ll see a PS5

    The PS4 has matured and blossomed into a beastly console that continues to sell better than anything else available. That’s exactly what a winning formula looks like. Let’s be clear; the PS4 is a console sitting in many homes around the world, and it’s not by coincidence. Sony has delivered at all levels; performance, games, marketing and value. However, given we are in 2018 and the PS4 is in its 4th year since birth, we’d…

    Should Sony’s Next Console be Discless?

    Without speculation and rumours, we would neglect the future possibilities. Pondering, wondering, dreaming are just three of the ingredients involved when it comes to speculation. So, let’s delve down this very avenue. The very suggestion that discs would become redundant hasn’t come to fruition as yet, and whilst we might be heading in that direction there is little evidence to suggest that Sony’s next console would swerve away from having a disc drive. Alert! Give…
