    What Will The PS5’s User Interface Look Like?

    With speculation about the PlayStation 5 rife among developers and consumers alike, everyone has many questions about Sony’s upcoming console. Sony gave a presentation recently regarding the specs of its console, but since it was intended to be a replacement for a GDC presentation, it was a little drier than many PlayStation fans were hoping for. Since Sony doesn’t want to give the game away just yet, we thought we’d think about something that’s very…

    Does This PS4 Accessory Point Towards A PS5 Innovation?

    One of the most important aspects of any gaming console is its controller. After all, a terrible controller can shoot down an otherwise respectable system, and an excellent controller can save a bad one. Nintendo’s Wii U was a slightly underpowered console, but it was a reasonable machine apart from its massive and unwieldy controller. Similarly, the GameCube lacked clout in the software department, but its controller was excellent. Of course, the ideal is a…

    PS5 And VR: How Will Virtual Reality Happen on PlayStation 5?

    Since gaming began as a hobby back in the 1970s (although some place its advent even earlier than that), the goal has been immersion. Every generation has boasted successively improved graphics; from the detailed, clear 16-bit sprites of the SNES days to the nascent 3D of the PlayStation era, developers have been striving to provide more and more immersive experiences as the years have gone by. The strides gaming has taken since its inception have…

    Here’s something we know for sure: in 2020, we’ll be getting our hands on Sony’s newest console, the PlayStation 5. We’re beyond excited, of course, but we still don’t know what kind of games we’re going to get for it yet.

The console is shaping up to be just as amazing as its predecessors, but without an excellent controller, it might suffer. Of course, we…

    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…

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…
