    PS5 Pro: Is it worth the wait?

    This year has been tough for next-gen consoles and it doesn’t seem to be getting any better for them. With both Sony and Microsoft struggling to keep enough stock on the shelves for the number of orders they’re receiving. The tragic flop that was Cyberpunk 2077 is a sure sign that the next gen is simply not ready to be launched and maybe you should wait to see what’s in the pipeline before taking the…

    Is The Demon’s Souls Remake Better Than The Original?

    Back in 2009 (2010 in PAL territories), From Software released Demon’s Souls for the PlayStation 3. It was the first project masterminded by veteran Hidetaka Miyazaki, who’d been working for From Software as a developer on the Armored Core series up to that point. Demon’s Souls was a cult hit, sparking worldwide interest in Miyazaki’s development philosophy and spawning an entire series of its own that continues to be loved and cherished by gamers to…

    Should You Get Cyberpunk 2077 On PS5?

    Due to bugs, Sony has now challenged the buggy game. The day is finally here. CD Projekt Red’s long-anticipated Cyberpunk 2077 has finally hit shelves, and it’s doing about as well as everyone expected it to, notching up an impressive 90 score on Metacritic (for the PC version, anyhow). Unfortunately, the game isn’t out yet on the PlayStation 5, and it won’t be hitting Sony’s machine (or, indeed, Microsoft’s next-gen option) until 2021. We don’t…

    Can You Get A PS5 This Christmas?

    The PlayStation 5 is finally upon us, but it’s not a launch that’s been completely without controversy and difficulty. While Sony has undoubtedly launched one of the best consoles of its kind, there’s also no doubt that it’s been incredibly difficult to get hold of, which isn’t the kind of news gamers want to hear just before a major holiday like Christmas. Of course, a lot of the delay has been down to the coronavirus…

    2020 has been a year that many can’t wait to see the back of. With 2021 promising so much, including various restocks of the latest consoles, games and devices, there is no wonder we’re so eager for this year to end. Some might make the point that the latest PS5 console was released over a month ago so why is a restock so important? Well, any gamer knows how difficult it is to get your…

    PlayStation 5 Launches In UK To Widespread Shortages

    The wait is over...for some people. Sony’s newest console, the PlayStation 5, has officially launched in the UK. It’s been mired in controversy and technical difficulties, however, with deliveries, stock levels, and more under fire from disappointed customers. This won’t be what many gamers wanted or expected from Sony, although several retailers have said that they may get more stock later in the week, so it’s worth keeping your eyes peeled if you haven’t managed…

    What Makes The PS5 Launch So Special?

    If you’re anything like us, then you’re likely glued to news about the PlayStation 5’s launch. We think this is the most exciting Sony hardware premiere in many years; the innovations offered by the PS5 go far beyond graphics, with loading times, frame rates, and plenty more all significantly improved over the previous generation. After the runaway success of the PlayStation 4, we think the PS5 is poised for an easy victory this generation; Microsoft…

    The PlayStation 5 Has No Web Browser - Here’s Why

    Web browsers on consoles have been something of a fixture ever since the days of the PlayStation 3. Sony’s third generation of PlayStation consoles featured a fairly basic web browser which allowed you to surf the internet and visit your favourite sites, and although it wasn’t particularly packed with functionality, it was a neat thing to have. Similarly, the Nintendo Wii and Wii U both had very, very stripped-back versions of web browsers, and the…

    Will We Ever See A PS6?

    Demand for Sony’s PlayStation 5 has been immense. The amount of gamers looking forward to the next generation of Sony’s hardware is even more impressive than it was during the last generation. This has led to temporary shortages, with some consumers unable to pre-order consoles and many being left worried about whether or not they’ll be able to secure a PS5 on launch day. We’re not worried; brief setbacks in terms of stock always lead…

    Sony Just Released A Deep Dive Into The PS5 UI

    One of the most exciting aspects of a new console’s release is what the user interface looks like. After all, that’s probably the part of the console you’ll see the most; between games, movies, and other media, you’ll be spending an awful lot of time on a console’s home screen, so it needs to look compelling.  We’ve been wondering what the PS5’s user interface is going to look like for some time now, but we…

    Will Genshin Impact Come To PS5?

    One of the most talked-about games right now is Chinese developer miHoYo’s runaway smash hit Genshin Impact. If you haven’t played it yet, it’s effectively a free-to-play RPG that mimics some of the mechanics of Nintendo’s The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, but it adds many of its own twists on the formula to create something truly unforgettable. We’re huge fans of Genshin Impact here; it’s quick to get started, easy to play,…

    How To Pre-order A PS5 - The Ultimate Guide

    If you’ve been keeping up with gaming news recently, you may have seen that pre-ordering a PlayStation 5 has been proving pretty difficult. Part of this is due to the fact that Sony activated PS5 pre-orders before it should have, thus leading to a lot of confusion among consumers. However, the scarcity of the console can also be attributed to its popularity; analysts have predicted that the PlayStation 5 will vastly outsell the Xbox Series…

    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…

    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.

    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.

    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…

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…

    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,…
