By Jessica Reyes 23 July 2021 22:39 GMT Ghost of Tsushima, a Sucker Punch Production masterpiece, has dropped to only $30. This is one of the lowest prices for the best-selling PlayStation 4 title since its release in 2020.

He puts aside his honor as a samurai to sneakily disrupt Mongol activities and free hostage villages using stealth and cunning. Sakai teams with new…

An updated PS5 digital model has been spotted and it’s a bit lighter than the current model

By Stephany Nunneley 20 July 2021 18:22 GMT An updated PS5 digital console has been spotted, and the only change seems to be that it’s a bit lighter than the current offering. Going by the pdf of the new manuals uploaded by Sony, the PS5 Digital Edition listed on Japanese websites is around 7% lighter than the current model. The new model (CFI-1100B) is apparently 300g lighter than the model that’s available now (CFI-1000B) (via Renka_schedule). In other words, the only difference between the two digital models is that one is slightly lighter than the other, something most people won’t…

This Week’s PlayStation Event Won’t Include God Of War Or Horizon

During last month’s E3/Summer Game Fest announcement bonanza, Sony was one of the many conspicuously absent companies. However, if you were expecting big, E3-style announcements out of the PlayStation maker’s July showcase, prepare to be disappointed. In a blog post today, Sony Interactive Entertainment senior director of content communications Sid Shuman said that the much-anticipated July 8 “State of Play” event will mostly focus on Deathloop and other third-party games.“In this extended gameplay sequence, we’ll see Cole use his abilities to stealthily skulk across rooftops…or go in guns blazing to create a whole lot of mayhem,” Shuman wrote of Deathloop….

Death Stranding Director’s Cut has been rated for PS5

By Dom Peppiatt 22 June 2021 11:06 GMT The Entertainment Software Ratings Board has classified Death Stranding Director’s Cut for PS5 – and only PS5.Back at E3 2021, Kojima Productions confirmed that Death Stranding: Director’s Cut is indeed real and a full reveal for the game is just ‘weeks away’.Now, we’ve seen evidence backing that up, with the ESRB’s classification suggesting the game is close to launching – and maybe coming exclusively to PS5.Usually, if a game is going to arrive on multiple platforms, we’d see that noted in the ESRB listing. With this one, however, that has not been the case; it’s only listed…

E3 2021: 20 Games Missing From The Show

Silence screams volumes. Over the past five days, video game publishers have shouted announcements for the biggest games from the rooftops. But that chorus has been drowned out by the far more deafening din of what wasn’t announced at E3 2021. Of course, we had some inkling beforehand about which blockbusters wouldn’t show up. Ubisoft said from the jump that we’d see nothing from The Division or the Prince of Persia: Sands of Time remake. Deep Silver, the publisher behind series like Timesplitters and Dead Island, also said that it wouldn’t exhibit any games at E3. Activision, Sony, and EA…

Former Xbox exclusive The Medium is coming to PS5 in September

The Medium, the apparently timed Xbox console exclusive from Bloober Team that launched earlier this year, is coming to PS5 on September 3, 2021.This isn’t a complete surprise, though: the Entertainment Software Rating Board listed The Medium on PS5 back at the start of the month. Bloober Team’s third-person psychological horror title was first announced for PC, Xbox Series X/S, and was a day-one release through Xbox Game Pass.
