Sony’s PS5 showcase was exciting for PC gaming, then hugely disappointing

For a brief, beautiful moment last night, Sony were good to PC gaming. Their PlayStation 5 Showcase focused on their new console, sure, but they did let the Final Fantasy XVI announcement confirm a PC release, and they did reveal the Demon's Souls remaster is coming to PC too. For a company cagey about even acknowledging the existence of other platforms, this was delightful. Then…

PlayStation 5 is coming November 12th, so I guess the next generation is a go

Alrighty then, lads and germs: we have the starts of our next console generation confirmed. Sony tonight announced the PlayStation 5 will launch November 12th in the US, Japan, Canada, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand, and South Korea, then November 19th for the rest of the world. That's two days after the Xbox Series X, launching November 10th. The regular PS5 will cost £450/€500/$500 and it's…

Horizon: Zero Dawn has fixed more crashes in a PC patch

Another Horizon: Zero Dawn patch arrived today, promising to fix yet more bugs that caused crashes. Horizon is such a lovely game that it's a shame the launch was marred for some by technical issues, especially considering this was Sony's first experiment in releasing PlayStation exclusives on PC. Fingers crossed that this patch lets more folks simply enjoy scampering about hunting robodinosaurs.I do have a…

Sony will “explore” bringing more exclusives to PC

Earlier this year, Alice0 mused that it would be weird if Sony didn't bring more exclusives to PC and by golly it looks like they were listening to her specifically because now they're having a proper think about it. Sony now say they will "explore" bringing more games by Sony-owned studios to PC players.

Aeon Must Die’s slick debut was allegedly built with “abuse, manipulation and theft”

A sharp-as-hell slasher set to hit Steam and PS4 next year, Aeon Must Die made an unexpected splash during Sony's State Of Play showcase last Thursday. Unfortunately, it's not the game folks are talking about in the wake of Limestone's debut. Instead, the game has found itself locked in a minefield of allegations, as former developers accuse bosses at Limestone of abuse, harassment, unwarranted firings…

Feature: Battering an iron ostrich to pieces never felt so good

Horizon Zero Dawn PC review

If you've read anything I've had to say about Horizon Zero Dawn to date - and I've eulogised it twice already - the tone of this review shouldn't come as a surprise. I knew the PC port would have to be either unplayable, or introduce an inexplicable wisecracking pelican as Aloy's sidekick, to change my opinion of what's probably my favourite ever action game. And…

Sony are investing $250 million in Epic Games

As businesses do when they want to become better pals, Sony and Epic Games have announced their intentions to work closer together with a press release and a price tag. Sony have made a "strategic investment" to acquire a minority interest in Epic to the tune of $250/£197.5 million. Suppose this explains why we saw that Unreal Engine 5 tech demo running on a PlayStation…

Watch Sony’s E3 stream here today

The first big publisher stream of notE3 is on tonight, with Sony showing off their PlayStation 5 and its games. That's starting at 9pm (1pm Pacific). I would be very surprised if they don't show any PC games, especially given that Sony are experimenting with bringing former PlayStation exclusives to PC. But if it is all PlayStation-only, hey, it will likely be pretty. Give you…

Bloodborne is coming to PC, rumours claim

Over the weekend, Twitter's rumour mill started spinning up again, as multiple accounts posted all sorts of teasery info about Bloodborne potentially getting PC and PlayStation 5 ports. None of this is official, of course, though it's kind of reminiscent of when similar rumours started going around about PlayStation exclusive Horizon Zero Dawn earlier this year - and that's coming out on PC this summer.…

Would you give up your Xbox controller to use the new PS5 DualSense instead?

The Xbox controller long ago became the de facto standard for playing PC games with a pad, but Sony's DualShock 4 also got PC support a long time ago via Steam or a piece of software called DS4Windows. The DS4 a fine controller and I've used it every so often on PC, particularly when dabbling with PlayStation Now, Sony's remote play service on PC. Sony…

Predator: Hunting Grounds opens up for a free weekend of murder

The killing fields are open, team. Predator: Hunting Grounds's free weekend kicked off last night, letting you skulk about a lush open forest full of heavily-armed soldiers, super-powered alien mercenaries, and enough mud to give Hollywood's favourite muscle-man a mud bath three-times over - all without spending a penny.

What Sony’s PS5 specs tell us about AMD’s Big Navi cards

As big hardware spec reveals go, yesterday's PS5 specs deep-dive was pretty darn dry. Sony's Mark Cerny spent at least 50% of the 50-odd minute presentation talking about the console's SSD, and we still don't have any idea what the thing actually looks like. It was just abstract graph after abstract graph, a bit like the one up the top there, which I think is…

It would be weird if Sony didn’t bring more PlayStation exclusives to PC

With yesterday's news that Sony will release Horizon: Zero Dawn on PC this summer came a hint that this might be only the first of their PlayStation exclusives coming our way. It sounds like they're moving slowly and cautiously yet do expect to bring more. While this has seemed increasingly likely in recent years, it's still surprising to me. What a great thing. Sony own…

It’s official, Horizon: Zero Dawn is coming to PC this summer

It's been two months since rumours started flying about Horizon: Zero Dawn coming to PC, and now, out of absolutely nowhere, it's been confirmed. Horizon is a (soon-to-be former) PlayStation exclusive where you get to hunt giant robot dinosaurs, and it's making its way to PC this very summer.Oh Nate will be pleased.

The Final Fantasy 7 remake needs to give flowers the respect they deserve

Everyone from Taylor Swift to Tyler, The Creator has written a song about flowers. Fancy restaurants scatter them over melting chocolate bombes. Van Gogh even had a crack at painting some once, I believe. And after all, why not? Flowers bloom all around the world, and symbolise so much to so many different cultures. Final Fantasy is far from the only video game series to…

Sony and Facebook cancel GDC appearances due to coronavirus

Sony and Facebook have cancelled their appearances at the Game Developers Conference this year, both citing concerns about the new coronavirus. The yearly conference for game industry workers is typically a source of new information each year, with presentations about the development of influential games and interviews with studio members. Both Sony and Facebook are stepping back this year based on concerns for the health…

Feature: PlayStation Now says what?

The PlayStation exclusives we’d love to see on PC

There are rumours that robo-dinosaur hunting adventure Horizon: Zero Dawn is coming to PC soon, which would be the first time a game produced by a Sony-owned studio has shaken loose from its console shackles. We've also seen other former PlayStation exclusives developed by third-party studios make the leap to PC in the past year, such as Journey and Detroit: Become Human, and 2020 will…

Horizon: Zero Dawn may reportedly be heading to PC this year

Like many of you, I've never felt the impact of a steel bow pierce cyborg velociraptor flesh. I've never climbed one of Horizon: Zero Dawn's whopping great brontosaurus with a flying saucer for a head. No, I've only watched our oft-absent PlayStation-owning flatmate steal through the tall grass, watching from the doorway, thinking "cor, that looks alright." Horizon: Zero Dawn was going to be one…

PS4 cross-platform multiplayer reportedly now available to all developers

I know statements like this are tantamount to heresy and that there can be no escape from Horace's ursidaen omniscience, but on this occasion I'm going to throw myself on His mercy. Consoles can be quite good. I like having a box by my telly that doesn't force me to solve an arcane tech problem every few months. More saliently, I know others who feel…

Fortnite is testing true cross-platform play as Sony finally ease up

Fortnite has already taken over the world, but after an announcement on Sony's PlayStation Blog today, I might be willing to give it some tentative credit in ending the console war, too. Or starting a new one. After months of Sony taking up Microsoft's old miserly crown and saying that cross-platform play between PS4, Xbox One, Switch and PC players just wasn't on the cards,…
