War Thunder Playstation 4 gets Ground Forces Next Week!

Image
Tanks a million Gaijin!

PS4 player at last get Tanks added to the excellent War Thunder on June 5th, one day before D-Day in case you need reminding.

Ground forces is brilliant, we played the PC version a few weeks ago when we exclusively revealed that Tanks would come to PS4 "soon".

"Today we’re proud to announce that Ground Forces expansion is finally coming out in Europe on PS4 on 5th June. But it’s not about armored vehicles only – all of the other features found in the latest 1.41 version of the game are included as well: 350 different planes, squadron battles, more than 150 multiplayer missions and many other improvements."


War Thunder dive bombs the US in time for D-Day!

Image
The wait is finally over for US PlayStation 4 owners. War Thunder will hit the US on June 3rd and what's more..............Tanks are here. That's right, Ground Forces will be packed in when you download it all in 1080p.

This from Gaijin;

War Thunder for PS4 runs in "majestic 1080p" and includes the recently released Ground Forces expansion. Cross-platform play between PS4 and PC will be introduced in the very near future. 

War Thunder features 350 different planes, 150 multiplayer missions, as well as a single-player campaign and squadron battles. War Thunder is a free to play game with NO pay walls.

Watch Dogs Playstation 4.........A few hours in.

Image
I remember an old forum chap saying in our shout-box, "hey lads, has anyone seen Watch Dogs?" It was blueroom. He put a link to the very first E3 leaked footage that was shown by Ubisoft a couple of years back. I looked at it and thought Wow! I knew that it had to be next gen and sure enough it was.

Watch Dogs has been on our radar for some time. Myself and AK saw a behind closed doors showing of the game running on the PS4 last year. A controlled demo showing off the compound-taking section, very much like the ideas seen in Far Cry 3. We were impressed.

Now the game is here and reviews have hit the net the same day. Ubi made sites hold back reviews until day one; this is not a first as many now do this. For some reason the usual suspects start ranting on forums about cancelling pre-orders etc. Why? Do people really make a purchase based on a handful of reviews from maybe 30 people amongst millions of gamers? Apparently they do.

The first thing anyone will do is compare it …

Metro:Redux teased by Deep Silver for Playstation 4

Deep Silver have posted two videos with the first showing the PS4 front end followed by a little gameplay.

The second shows the games frame rate at 60fps with the PS4 controller mapping.

I didn't get to play these games so for me they are a must buy. Can't wait.

Take a look here.







Borderlands 2 PS Vita-PS3 Cross save patch this week.

Image
Randy Pitchford has confirmed via Twitter that the PS3 version will get the patch on Tuesday 20th May.

The PS Vita version is ready to go but Sony have yet to patch the PS3 game.

The Vita version has had mixed reviews but the nay sayers have had backlash via Youtube by many fans venting anger at such low scores. In fact I personally think it looks great. Seasoned PC players have even took to Youtube after buying the Vita slim just for this game and vented frustration at low scores stating that the game is a 7/10 of anyones money.

Myself and my son will be getting the game day one to play co-op. Can't wait.

It's also worth pointing out that the US PS Store has 750 ratings for Vita Borderlands and it is the first game on any platform that I've seen have 5 stars from what appears to be every rating.

Sony Confirms E3 Conference Time

Image
Sonys E3 conference will be taking place on Monday June 10th at 2am BST for UK viewers, hopefully it will be worth staying up late for.

Playstation 4 hits a home run in the US.......again.

Image
PlayStation 4 is hammering the XBone on it's home turf. In March Titanfall couldn't boost sales enough to surpass the unstoppable PS4.

MLB14 The Show looks incredible on PS4 and will surely boost sales further this month.
Hardware sales for 4 weeks in April were 579,840 with XBone trailing behind at just 335,101. That's a tanking and the gulf has grown from last month.

Infamous Second Son was the top seller for 3 out of the 4 weeks. New games are coming fast now via PSN and on the shelves. Bound By Flames the Next game that's getting the PS4 love over the XBone.

Rumour overload is that Sony will be showing off Grand Theft Auto V for PS4 with news that the game will be available immediately after the show. If true this will be a massive blow to Microsoft.

The Last Of Us 2 is a game that's in the works and I'm 99% sure Sony will show it off at the show. There has to be good reason to bring the first game to the PS4 just days after the conference. ?
These are ve…

Unreal Tournament for Playstation 4?

Image
On Thursday the daddy of fast paced first person shooting is going to be making a well overdue comeback.

Epic VP Mark Rein tweeted that the shooter is making a comeback. Mark Rein said of the Playstation 4, "its a perfect gaming PC".

It's also no secret that Mark is a huge Playstation fan. We chatted to him way back when PS2 was shown at ECTS in London. He sat with one PS2 excitedly showing off the excellent game on the new console.

His love for his work has fixed firmly in my mind from that day.

Unreal enjoyed an exclusive time period on the PS3 with Unreal 3. That game was fast paced and great fun but had lost some of its groundbreaking fast gameplay due to larger maps. The Assault game mode was also missing and it what was my favourite mode.

SCE have registered "Guns Up!". This maybe nothing. But Mark has gone on record as saying, "so excited about Unreals comeback".

Could it be a FTP title?

Bookmark Thursday at 2pm ET.

Please be a PS4 Unreal.
