New Amazing Spider Man 2 Video Shows off Swinging Mechanics

Image
This new video shows of gameplay for the upcoming Amazing Spiderman 2.

Swinging through the city looks like great fun and reminds us of the PS2 classic.


The Last of Us Complete Edition Listed for PS4

Image
The Spanish site Xtralife has a listing for The Last of Us Complete Edition on the PS4. This comes after PlayStation’s Eurasian software market manager Sercan Sulun let slip that the game was coming in an interview with a Turkish site.

“There is no information about a new The Last Of Us game but I can share this knowledge; as of this Summer, The Last Of Us will be on the PS4. Both on PSN and physical. The PS4 version will also include the DLC so you will be able to play ‘Left Behind’ as well”. The first game will be released this summer for PS4 as a physical and digital copy, with enhanced graphics.”

The page appears to have been taken down now but an advertisement for it is still scrolling past on the sites Playstation 4 section although clicking it leads to no where.

Watch is below and let us know what you think in the comments.


Rezzed 2014:Murdered Soul Suspect 1080p on Playstation 4

Image
Square Enix were on the show floor showing off the excellent looking Murdered Soul Suspect on PS4.

Rory from Square confirmed that the game will be running at 1080p. The game looks excellent with a great idea for a story.

We will be following this game very closely with new media coming  soon after Rezzed has finished.

Rezzed 2014:Playstation 4 dominated show floor.

Image
Don't underestimate the power of Playstation.

This years Rezzed has shown how far ahead of the competition Sony has stridden. Yes many Indies were on the show floor but this is a good thing, a very healthy thing for us gamers and the smaller developers.


Sony set out to pull developers in and have done this in a big way. At Eurogamer last year we saw many, at Rezzed we have seen many more and what is very obvious is how far on these excellent looking games are.


Two games really stood out for me. The first was a side scrolling game that was based heavily on using the old grey matter. The Swapper is what it says on the tin, you swap your position with another to activate switches, get to higher places etc. The art style was beautiful with nice lightning effects.


Next was a game that had a kind of Borderlands look to it. Helldivers is a top down shooter that is obviously a homage to starship troopers in the level on show. Online Co-op was confirmed for 4 players with cross play with …

Rezzed 2014:Alien Isolation 1080p greatness on Playstation4

Image
Update:Sega have confirmed that the game will hit retail on October 7th 2014.

Alien Isolation.......no no wait, this is a great looking Alien game. No really.

Anyone that loves the movies knows that what makes them great is the atmosphere. Not hoards of dumb aliens running at you from here there and everywhere.

I don't want to do the oldest trick in the book and say this but I have to, its like Outlast in a very nostalgic alien world. You even play as Ripley's daughter.

I wont spoil anything but fans of the movies will be made up with the nods towards the silver screen versions.

I looked at all versions of the game on show behind closed doors and even though the PC version was running on smaller screens it was the PS4 version on 40" screens that looked the best. The developers confirmed that the PS4 version ran at 1080p.

I jumped three times during the demo and was left wanting more. This has gone from interested to must have.

Don't turn out the lights.

Rezzed 2014:War Thunder Tanks in two months on Playstation 4.

Image
On the show floor was the excellent looking War Thunder with Tanks being shown off for the PC version. Without wasting any time I asked the team when we can expect tanks in the Playstation 4 version.

"Tanks will launch in one months time on PC and we hope for a month later on PS4".

It's  unclear if he meant a closed beta or open beta.

Either way its exciting news for World War two fans. We'll update as soon as we get more info.

TimeSplitters 4 (Rewind) to be a "Playstation 4 Console Exclusive"

Image
If you remember we reported on a story about TimeSplitters Rewind last year. Now PS4 owners can really get excited as internet rumblings are pointing out that it's being described as a "Xbone killer" Sony Exclusive. Yeah I know, heard that before but it's a known fact that 1000's of gamers want another TimeSplitters and it looks like Sony know this.


It's unclear if Sony have snapped up publishing rights for the game or weather they are funding the project. Time will tell. E3 2014? Or is it all rubbish? Any News we get we'll keep you posted.

It is said that Splitters is "not the only exclusive card they have up there sleeves".  Exciting stuff.

TimeSplitters Rewind Gameplay Incoming!

Image
Not long now for your first real look at the Re-vamped Splitters game coming to the Playstation 4.

Michael Hubicka from the development team had this info to share about the game and the progress so far.

Join the official forums here.

Hey Everyone!
Back in February, we announced that we were working on recording of some gameplay to show off. We are still planning on releasing a trailer as soon as possible. I do want to discuss some of the things that we have been cooking up in preparation for the trailer though!
We have seen some major changes to the menus and HUD. We are slowly moving away from the default SDK interface and to our own custom one. We have even started implementing the menu music and sound effects for selecting the various options! We feel that when we first launch the game and show you TimeSplitters Rewind, it should give you that nostalgic rush starting from that point.
The HUD has seen some major work done as well. When we get into the game you're not just goin…

Delsin Blasts Titanfall from the top spot! Holds up Snake too! Update.

Image
Update:PS4 hardware sales jump 106% on the back of Second Son launch.


PlayStation 4 exclusive inFamous: Second Son has enjoyed the second biggest debut for a new PlayStation 4 game in the UK, behind launch title Killzone: Shadow Fall. It beat Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes in both charts, despite only being on the one format. It's worth pointing out that a massive 58% of sales went to Snakes debut on PS4 and only 20% to XBone. PS3 and 360 took the rest with PS3 nearly matching XBone at 15%, just 7% on 360. Maybe it should go pure next gen in light of sales? It could sure do with the time spent on the graphics engine in our humble opinion. For the record, sales of Titanfall took a huge titan size fall by 73% one week after it launched. Titanfall 2 is already said to be coming to Playstation 4 next time round. EA were quoted on Twitter as being a little gutted that they put all there eggs in one basket. Nice to see FF10 enter the charts on PS Vita.

Playstation 4 steals nearly 50% of Thief sales.

Image
Thief has stooped out of the shadows to grab the top slot in the UK charts. What's more the Playstation 4 version has taken nearly 50% of all sales.

About 46% sold through on Sonys new console with PS3, 360, PC and XBOne scrapping it out for the remaining 54%.

Thief had mixed reviews but having played for a few hours I'm finding it very good. I'd not played any Thief games before this one mind. Digital sales are not included.
