  • GTA V Will Have Huge 50GB Install Size

    gta v ps4 install sizeWe've talked a little bit in the past about large game install sizes, but today we have some crazy news to share with you. It has been rumored that Grand Theft Auto V for the PlayStation 4 could take exactly 50GB of storage space from your beloved PS4's hard drive.

    That is a huge 10% of the default hard drive that comes with the PS4, and that is only for one game - this does not include any content patches or DLC that Rockstar may plan to release in the future.

    50GB may not seem like much, but it's starting to reach the point where many games require between 30GB and 50GB free for install space, and over the next few years that size may keep going up.

    For those with slow connections, this is a very large issue, and it makes paying for digital games almost impossible. It's great to see that Sony and Microsoft are now offering digital downloads for their games, but it is not a very viable option, considering that it would only take around 10 games to fill up an entire hard drive.

    For now, physical discs and Blu-rays are still the way to go, and until devices start including more storage space as standard, it's going to be a long, long time before installs overtake sales of physical sales for console video games.

    Whilst there has been no mention of the GTA V Xbox One storage size, it's likely to be very similar or identical to that of the PlayStation 4.

  • Uncharted 4: A Thief's End Nathan Drake Model Shown

    uncharted 4 nathan drake modelNaughty Dog has just revealed a brand new screenshot which showcases Nathan Drake in their latest work-in-progress game, Uncharted 4: A Thief's End.

    The new screenshot, which can be seen above, shows off a 3D render of the new Nathan Drake model, which Naughty Dog have been using in Uncharted 4. As you can see, the detail on Nathan is undeniably impressive. From the pores and wrinkles on his head, to the creases on his shirt, this picture shows that Uncharted 4 really is going to look amazing.

    Naughty Dog recently addressed the public's voice and confirmed that the incredibly detailed E3 reveal trailer for Uncharted 4 earlier this year was in fact within the in-game engine, suggesting that the game is more than capable of rendering such high definition graphics.

    The new image showcasing the Nathan Drake model has been used to promote a new 3D modelling event that is being hosted by a range of developers. The event will include a variety of different shows, including a character modelling demo by Naughty Dog.

    Uncharted 4: A Thief's End is set for release at some point in 2015 - so far we have not received a definitive release date for the title, but it sounds as if Naughty Dog have got quite a lot of work to do on the game before they pin up a launch date to share with the world.

    We'll let you know as soon as we learn about the launch date of the game, or if any new information about Uncharted 4 is released by Naughty Dog.

  • Ratchet and Clank Remake Rumored For PlayStation Event

    ratchet and clank remakeThe Ratchet and Clank franchise has been one that many Sony fans have loved ever since the PlayStation 2, and with recent news of a Ratchet and Clank animated movie, hype for the series has never been so high.

    If you're a fan of Ratchet and Clank, then you'll probably be very excited to hear that it has been rumored that a Ratchet and Clank remake has been rumored to be in the works.

    The new game, which will be a remake of the original game for the PlayStation 2, is rumored to be releasing alongside the same time as the movie launch, and it will be made available for the PlayStation 4.

    As expected, the new remake is rumored to come with a new graphical overhaul, and some have even suggested that the game may end up looking very similar to the graphics seen in the Ratchet and Clank movie.

    Whilst nothing has yet been officially confirmed, reports suggest that the new Ratchet and Clank remake will be revealed on a special PlayStation game event, which has been set for December 6-7, 2014 in Las Vegas.

    A new Ratchet and Clank remake could be exactly what the franchise needs. It is clear that Insomniac Games haven't finished with the Ratchet and Clank IP yet, and that is shown by the current movie which is under production.

    Despite working on an Xbox exclusive right now, it seems as if Insomniac Games aren't locked into creating games just for one platform, which is great news.

  • Bloodborne "Only Possible" On PS4

    bloodborne ps4 exclusiveAccording to the developers of Bloodborne, the upcoming RPG title was "only possible" on the new PlayStation 4.

    Game director Hidetaka Miyazaki revealed that Bloodborne would not have been able to perform on previous generation consoles, meaning that the game would only be possible on the PS4 due to From Software's and Sony's current exclusivity partnership.

    "I [have] always wanted to make a game set in the Victorian era, but to make it look good - with all of the clothing, the architecture and things - required a console more powerful than the ones that were around. The arrival of the PS4 finally gave us that," Miyazaki revealed in a new interview with PlayStation LifeStyle.

    Miyazaki went on to explain that, "Bloodborne isn't a game that could have been cross-generation, it was only possible on PS4."

    To clear up any forthcoming confusion, Miyazaki did forget to mention that the game could run on the Xbox One - it could, but Bloodborne will be exclusive to the PlayStation 4 so it makes sense for him to specifically mention Sony and the PS4, instead of 'new gen consoles' when asked about From Software's decision to stick to just the PlayStation 4 for release.

    For those unaware, Bloodborne will a game with similar elements to Demon Souls and Dark Souls, however the title will be slightly more forgiving than previous franchises by From Software.

    Bloodborne will be released on 6th of February next year as a brand new PlayStation exclusive. Recent gameplay from TGS 2014 revealed a couple of new classes.

  • Dead or Alive 5: Last Round Confirmed for PS4 and Xbox One

    dead or alive 5 last round - CopyIt looks like everybody is jumping on the 'port-your-games-to-the-new-gen' band wagon, including Team Ninja, who have confirmed that they plan to bring Dead or Alive 5: Last Round to the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One, despite it being a game that released two years ago.

    Dead Or Alive 5: Last Round will come with a range of improvements, including graphical changes, and most likely a frame rate and resolution increase for the PS4 and the Xbox One.

    Dead Or Alive 5: Last Round will release for the PS3 and Xbox 360 too, however only a digital version will be available for last gen consoles, whilst both a physical and a digital version will be available for the Xbox One and PS4.

    Whilst there is no concrete release date for Dead Or Alive 5: Last Round, Team Ninja have mentioned that it will make it's way to the world in Spring 2015 for all four Sony and Microsoft consoles currently in the spotlight.

    DOA 5: Last Round will include characters that didn't make it into the original release, including Ryu Hayabusa, perhaps one of the most popular characters in the entire franchise. In summary, the full character lineup for Last Round will include Ayane, Bass, Bayman, Brad Wong, Kokoro Hayabusa, Hayate, Kasumi, Rig, Momiji, Leon, Lisa, Tina, Jann Lee, Hitomi, Leifang, Christie, Eliot, Leon, Gen Fu, Zack, Helena, Marie Rose, Phase 4, Nyotengu as well as Sarah Bryant, Akira, Pai and Jacky from the Virtua Fighter series.

  • Minecraft for PS4 Has Gone Live

    minecraft ps4 - CopyAt long last, the PlayStation 4 port for Minecraft has finally been put up for sale after months of development, planning and delayed releases. 4JStudios, the development team responsible for the port, have been working on the PS4 and Xbox One ports before the consoles were even available to the public. However, Minecraft can now be picked up from the PSN store for $19.99.

    If PS3 owners already have a copy of Minecraft on their PlayStation 3, they can 'upgrade' to the new PS4 version of Minecraft for just $4.99. Unfortunately, the promotion is not available for those that have purchased the physical copy of Minecraft for the PlayStation 3 in the past, however going forward all PS3 physical copies of Minecraft will now have pre-packaged codes that will players a $14.99 discount on the PS4 version of the game.

    Minecraft has been planned for the Xbox One as well, however due to a few issues the release has been slightly delayed. The Xbox One version of Minecraft will be released this Friday, and the same $19.99 full price and $4.99 upgrade price will be available on the Xbox One too.

    For those unaware, the new generation ports for Minecraft have a bunch of new features not supported in either the PS3 or Xbox 360 version, including worlds that are 36 times larger than the last-gen versions, better render distance and improved graphics.

    If you're an avid Minecraft fan and enjoy playing the game on your console, the $4.99 upgrade price should be something you may want to consider, as the extra world space will definitely come in handy.

  • Listing for Mass Effect on the PS4 Appears on Amazon

    mass effect ps4I don't know how it happens, but once again somebody has made a mistake on Amazon and has accidentally posted up a product listing that really shouldn't be there. Recently, a product listing for Mass Effect for the PlayStation 4 was found on Amazon, however after it was shared across the web, it was shortly removed from the website, confirming that it shouldn't have really been there in the first place.

    Whether or not it was an accident, or a smartly placed marketing attempt by BioWare, it's clear that something Mass Effect related might just be coming to the PlayStation 4 soon. The description for the Mass Effect product listing on Amazon wasn't filled with much details, so we have been left to speculate.

    It's very unlikely the listing was relating to the new Mass Effect game as there is still a lot of work that needs to be done before the game is ready for promotion. Instead, I personally think the listing could be suggesting a new PS4 port for the original Mass Effect game.

    If i'm correct, then perhaps we could expect a full port of the entire original trilogy to next gen consoles. If we get an HD remake on top of that too, I'd be most impressed, but that may be pushing it a little bit.

    Oddly, the game only mentioned a PlayStation 4 release for the product listing, but this could simply be because the listing was not fully completed before it was put online. The release date for the listing was December 31st 2014, which sounds like a rough placeholder date. Hopefully we'll hear something from BioWare about this.

  • Sony Getting Sued for Misleading 1080P Claims

    sony sued killzoneRemember when the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One were leading up to be released? A lot of talk in the industry revolved around screen resolution for launch titles, and fan boys fought over resolutions and frame rates like it actually mattered.

    Unfortunately, both Microsoft and Sony weren't 100% honest about the frame rates and resolutions the launch games were going to offer, and it looks as if that little bit of bending the truth has landed Sony in a bit of trouble.

    According to reports, one individual has just sued Sony for a total of $5 million after declaring that one of the PlayStation 4's launch titles, Killzone: Shadow Fall would support a native 1080P resolution.

    Truthfully, the 1080P resolution in Killzone Shadow Fall isn't native at all. Whilst the single player did prove to be native 1080P, the multiplayer had a stretched resolution; the screen did display 1080 pixels high, but it only showed 960 pixels wide - the display was then stretched width ways to fit the right dimensions to match full HD.

    Whilst it's true that Killzone Shadow Fall isn't being constantly played at native 1080P, it seems like a bit of an odd thing for someone to sue for. Unfortunately, it's all very real for Sony, and it shows that not being honest when marketing new games is not something to take lightly.

    So far, nothing is definite, but if the lawsuit against Sony can prove that Sony falsely advertised Killzone's resolution and benefited off of doing so, Sony may have to cough up $5.4 million.

  • Battlefield Hardline Delayed to 2015

    hardline delay 2015Despite releasing a new Battlefield title every year for the past few years, Visceral Games and EA have made the collective decision to push back the release of Battlefield Hardline, breaking the current annualization of the franchise and offering the developers more time to iron out any kinks with the game in it's current state.

    The reason behind the delay is primarily down to a range of new inspiration that has led Visceral Games back to the drawing board, thanks to the community's input from the recent Battlefield Hardline multiplayer beta.

    Visceral Games recently made a blog post on the EA Battlefield website to address the sudden launch date change, and details of that post can be read below.

    1. Multiplayer Innovation: Coming out of our E3 beta, internal focus tests, and work with our community, we have received a lot of great Multiplayer thinking. We're going to be adding some new feature ideas direct from the community that will evolve the cops and criminals fantasy into a truly unique Battlefield Multiplayer experience.
    2. Single Player Story Depth: In order to ensure our Single Player experience delivers on player expectations, we're spending more time polishing our core features, as well as adding a few new ones that will support a deeper "crime revenge" story experience.
    3. Stability: This has been a focus for our team since day one and we're going to be using the extra time to continue to optimize the game for a stable launch. We have learned a lot from Battlefield 4, are continuing to learn from our Community Test Environment and will learn more from another Hardline beta. More time allows us to surface issues that the team can attempt to fix prior to launch.

    Although Battlefield Hardline has been delayed our controller creation hasn't! Check out today what Evil Controllers has available for custom controller design! Get your very own controller today.
