Have a million bucks to spare? You could buy around 2400 different consoles on eBay right now

The listing in question likely won’t be snapped up any time soon. If you have a spare cool mill laying around somewhere, and fancy upping your console collection, there’s an eBay listing you might want to check out. With the world of video games offering a fair number of rare collectibles due to limited prints of cartridges, or certain consoles and peripherals not doing well enough to warrant much production of them, there’s a lot of collectors in turn who like to build personal libraries. And recently, an eBay listing (spotted by Consolevariations.com) shows a pretty impressive collection of roughly…

The Last of Us Part I review – A PS5 remake that shines above most

Perhaps not 100% necessary, but still absolutely brilliant. You wouldn’t know it if you don’t read “Terrible Take Twitter” or the “Irate Internet,” but there’s been a lot of negativity around the remake of The Last of Us for PS5, subtly renamed to The Last of Us: Part 1. The gist of this anger is due to the original game on PS3 releasing a little over nine years ago. So, how dare Naughty Dog remake a game that new, right? Frankly, I don’t care what projects a game development studio decides to take on, and in this particular instance the…

Twisted Metal TV show has finished filming, moves on to post-production

The show is set to feature Will Arnett as the worst clown around Sweet Tooth. The TV adaptation of Twisted Metal has apparently wrapped up filming, and has moved onto post-production. As spotted by VGC, Twisted Metal’s showrunner Michael Johnathon posted a tweet over the weekend noting that season one of the show had finished shooting. The show was greenlit back in 2021, and has writers from the Deadpool films attached as well. “The cast and crew of Twisted Metal was something special,” wrote Johnathon in a tweet. “Even with lightning delays, extreme heat, and cars that wouldn’t do as…

PlayStation now has a mobile division, as it acquires Savage Game Studios

Savage Game Studios is already working on an unannounced, AAA mobile action game. PlayStation seems to be pushing towards the mobile market, as it sets up a dedicated mobile division, and acquires a mobile-focused studio. Earlier today (August 29), PlayStation announced that it is acquiring mobile game developer Savage Game Studios. If you haven’t heard of it before, that might be because it hasn’t actually released a game yet, though its co-founders do include former Zynga, Rovio, and Insomniac staff, so there’s plenty of experience in the industry at the very least. On top of that, PlayStation also announced that…

Don’t worry, PS5 price increase isn’t going to affect Xbox

If you click on a link and make a purchase we may receive a small commission. Read our editorial policy. Microsoft has responded to PS5’s sudden price hike by saying it won’t do the same. Yesterday, Sony made what’s likely to go down as one of the most surprising news of the year, if not the entire console generation. The platform holder announced a price increase for both of its PS5 editions in most regions, except the US. The announcement created a wave of shock amongst fans, not just because of what Sony cited as the reasons behind this unusual…

Sony introduces DualSense Edge, a wireless customizable controller for PlayStation 5

With changeable stick caps. Sony has announced a new, customizable controller for PlayStation 5. Called DualSense Edge, the controller features changeable stick caps and back buttons, as well as replaceable stick modules. There are three types of swappable stick caps: standard, high dome, and low dome, and each will help maintain grip and stability. The two swappable sets of back buttons can be configured to be any other button input while the replaceable stick modules can be fully replaced. The controller also features multiple hardware and software-based customization options such as allowing you to remap or deactivate specific button inputs….

PS Plus Premium’s August update is good, bad, and ugly

Yes, we’ve got Yakuza. And one of the more recent open world Ubisoft shooters. But we’re also – once again – missing out on the classics. Earlier this week, we heard about the next batch of games coming to bulk out the PlayStation Plus Extra and Premium tiers on Sony’s newly dressed-up subscription service. At first glance, it’s not a bad offering – for owners of PS Plus Extra, you’ll be able to pick up three different Yakuza titles (including the best one, Yakuza 0) – but beyond that, there are some glaring issues with this month’s rollout. Sure, these…

PS Plus August Extra and Premium lineup revealed, and it’s packed with Yakuza

But there’s no more classics being added this month. The next batch of games being added to PlayStation Plus Extra and Premium has been revealed by Sony. Bugsnax arrives in August’s PS Plus lineup, so check out the gameplay trailer for the wacky adventure title here! For owners of PS Plus Extra, you’ll be able to pick up three different Yakuza titles, which is just the beginning for Yakuza fans or those keen to try out the series for the first time. Ultimately, the full Yakuza series is going to be coming to PS Plus before the end of 2022….

PlayStation is asking players about NFTs they like to collect at Evo

It’s unclear what the general purpose of the survey is, though. PlayStation has put out a survey for players attending Evo, asking about types of NFTs they might be interested in purchasing. It’s Evo at the moment, which for those in the know is the biggest fighting game championship around. Numerous games take part in the tournament every year, but this year a relatively concerning question is being asked by PlayStation in a survey sent to players at Evo, one all about everyone’s least favourite topic at the moment; NFTs. The survey, which IGN confirmed was real, asked those answering…

Ico is awkward, unsettling, and weird – but it’s still an essential PS Plus game everyone needs to play

Before Shadow of the Colossus and The Last Guardian, there was Ico – and it’s still essential, some 21 years later. You know those beloved novels you always mean to read, but never quite get around to? Ico is my gaming equivalent. Released in 2001 for Sony’s bulky behemoth, this PS2 classic is heralded as one of the medium’s greatest achievements. If that wasn’t enough of an excuse for a games journalist to just fucking play it already, it’s also part of a trilogy that I utterly adore. Falling head over heels for creator Fumito Ueda’s feverishly anticipated 2016 epic…

PS Plus Essential lineup has reportedly leaked for August, and it’s pretty good

Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2 Remake, Yakuza: Like A Dragon, and Little Nightmares to be expected. It’s that time of the month again, and the roster of free games coming to PS Plus in August has reportedly been leaked. This time, the lineup of free games is actually rather neat. As per usual, Dealabs has leaked the lineup once more, after having posted the correct lineup of free titles for PS Plus ahead of Sony’s official announcement each month. If you’ve not seen it already, here’s the trailer for Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2 Remake! According to Dealabs’ leak, the…

July’s PlayStation Plus Extra and Premium games might include Final Fantasy 7 Remake, claims leaker

The leak also suggests a number of Assassin’s Creed titles will also be joining the service. It looks like some more games coming to PlayStation Plus Extra and Premium this month have leaked online. The leak comes from ResetEra user BlackBate, who as pointed out by VGC has a limited but accurate record of leaking details on Death Stranding Director’s Cut, Skull and Bones, and Microsoft Flight Simulator. We already knew that the wonderful looking Stray was coming to PlayStation Plus Extra and Premium when it launches, but it hasn’t been entirely clear when and what kind of other games…

Are the PS Plus July Essential games any good?

Are Crash Bandicoot 4, Man of Medan, and Arcadegeddon worth downloading? We’ve rated them all, for your pleasure. Sony has officially announced its July 2022 PlayStation Plus line-up – and it’s a good one. As is now standard for PS Plus line-ups, the actual roster of games leaked a little while ago, cutting in line ahead of the official PlayStation announcement. Either way, now that we’ve had official confirmation from Sony about what to expect from July (which is typically one of the quieter periods of the gaming year), we’ve been mulling it over and we’ve come to a conclusion…
