  • PS4 System Update 5.0 Launched

    ps4 system update 5.0A brand new system update for the PlayStation 4 has been released. PS4 owners can download and install the new 5.0 system update now.

    While moving to 5.0 sounds like quite a big jump, there aren't any significant changes in this latest system update. Unlike previous big OS updates for the PS4, the 5.0 system update puts a focus on backend fixes.

    The visual changes are very minor, but we'll discuss what has changed below.

    The biggest feature of the PS4 5.0 system update is the support for Twitch streaming up to 1080p resolution for those with a PS4 Pro. If you own a PS4 Pro, you'll be able to stream your game directly to Twitch at 60 frames per second and in 1080p resolution. You are now able to follow users in PS4's What's New feed. Previously, it was only possible to follow verified users from this feed.

    A couple of changes have also been made to the notifications system on the PS4 5.0 system update. Starting in 5.0, PS4 owners can now prevent notification pop-ups from appearing during video playback. People will now also be able to leave a party and check notifications from within the PS4 Quick Menu.

    Sony has also added reworked parental controls. PS4 owners can now create a 'family' account and have different labels for that account. Labels include parent/guardian and child. Each label can have its own set of permissions.

    What are your thoughts on this system update? It's not very exciting, but the few changes may prove useful for some PS4 owners.

  • Dissidia Final Fantasy NT Beta Signups Open

    dissidia final fantasy nt betaDissidia Final Fantasy NT is a video game that'll take the Final Fantasy franchise into new territory. It's a fighting game at heart, but it borrows some elements that you'd only recognize from past Final Fantasy games.

    Dissidia Final Fantasy NT is set to officially launch on the PlayStation 4 next year. So far, the exact release date hasn't been confirmed. We do, however, now know that a beta is coming for the game that'll give players the chance to play Dissidia Final Fantasy NT early.

    The signups for the closed beta are now live - you'll need to go to Square Enix's website to register your interest.

    Square Enix hasn't yet confirmed the starting dates for the closed beta, either. We'd expect it to come sometime this year, though. We're not sure whether pre-ordering Dissidia Final Fantasy NT will give you instant access to the closed beta, but for now, it looks as if it'll only be limited to randomly selected people that sign up to the closed beta via Square Enix's website.

    Dissidia Final Fantasy NT isn't the only game that has featured Square Enix's fighting game format - we've seen two Dissidia games for the PSP in the past. The new Dissidia Final Fantasy NT will be the first time we've seen the concept being taken to console.

    We're expecting Dissidia Final Fantasy NT to arrive in early 2018. We'll provide more details about it when we know more.

  • Superhot Coming to PS4 and PSVR

    Superhot PSVRIt's now been confirmed that Superhot for the PS4 and for PSVR are coming this month. The game will launch on July 21 in North America, and shortly before in other regions.

    Superhot is a first person shooter video game that has a unique time-based game mechanic. In Superhot, time in the game only progresses when the player moves. This gives the player the ability to assess their moves carefully before continuing.

    The game has already seen a lot of success on the Xbox One and PC, and a VR version was receiving a lot of praise from owners of the Oculus Rift and the HTC Vive.

    With the new Superhot and Superhot VR for PlayStation 4, the controls have been repurposed to support the Sony DualShock 4 and PlayStation Move controllers. The gameplay itself hasn't been changed.

    There are two versions of Superhot coming to the PlayStation 4. Players can either pick up the standard version, the VR version that has PSVR support, or a bundle that includes both versions.

    You can pick up either of the two versions of Superhot on the PS4 for USD $25, or alternatively, you can pick up the bundle for USD $40.

    With the huge amount of praise that Superhot and Superhot VR received from Xbox One and PC players, are you going to pick up Superhot? Will you play the standard version, or are you hoping to take the more immersive route with the VR version?

  • E3: Skyrim VR Is Coming to PlayStation 4

    skyrim vr e3Skyrim has already been released and re-released a million times already, but the latest addition to the PlayStation 4 should capture Elder Scrolls fans enough to bring them back to the game one final time.

    Skyrim VR was unveiled at the Sony E3 press conference. It has been confirmed as an exclusive title for the PlayStation 4 and will require the PlayStation VR kit to run. The game also supports PlayStation Move for hand gesture movement and control of the character's hands in Skyrim.

    So far, the release date was shared for Skyrim VR, and it wasn't made clear if Skyrim VR would remain an exclusive to Sony forever. Bethesda also unveiled Fallout 4 VR and Doom VFR at E3, although they weren't announced at Sony's E3 event.

    The price tag has not been confirmed yet, either. We wouldn't be surprised if Bethesda put the Skyrim VR game up for sale as a standalone game, but now that there have been so many Skyrim versions for various consoles, it's only fair that Bethesda considers putting a reasonable price on it. We'd be surprised if many gamers would be willing to pay full price for Skyrim...again.

    What are your thoughts on Bethesda's entry into the world of virtual reality? Do you think their range of games will translate well into the VR field? If you've got a VR headset, would you consider buying Skyrim VR? If you don't have a VR headset, does the announcement of Skyrim VR make you want to pick a headset up?

  • Evil Controllers Shift Pro Controller Coming This Summer

    evil controllers shift pro controllerWe've been doing modded controllers for years - we've provided gamers the tools they have needed to take their game to the next level. We've completely nailed the modded controller market.

    Recently, there has been a surge in interest for pro controllers - this is a relatively new space in the controller market and we think it deserves our name on it.


    This new controller has been built from the ground up to compete in the pro controller space amongst giants like the Xbox One Elite.

    The Evil Shift is currently in production for both the PS4 and Xbox One and will be made available this summer.

    We've modded the Evil Shift controllers to their fullest potential, making sure not to cross any lines that would disqualify the controller from any official esports events.

    This means we've got highly accurate interchangeable Evil Thumbsticks - these bad boys have more surface area, better grip, and can be swapped in and out on the fly.

    Our new Evil Shift hairpin triggers have been designed to give your controller faster response time - we're talking a 50% reduction in tension. The smoother trigger press will increase fire rate in all games.

    Our Evil Shift controller also features four unique paddle buttons at the rear of the control - they're remappable and incredibly responsive. The paddles also fit right where your fingers will be, so pressing the paddle buttons is like second nature to any gamer.

    Everything about the Evil Shift controller is available as a single hardware product - there's no messing around with software or apps - just pick it up and play.

  • Huge Rocket League Update Hits

    rocket-league-update-starbase-arcRocket League has received a huge new patch, which has been nicknamed the Starbase Arc Update.

    The new update is absolutely jam packed with new features and additional content, all of which has come to every player for free. To top this off, the update has already rolled out to PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

    A brand new trailer release has coincided with the brand new content drop. The new trailer showcases an inside look at the new features, starting with a discussion on the new training options, map preferences, and epic new starship vehicles.


    Whilst the 1.25GB patch is filled with content, the main highlights have been listed below.

    Starbase ARC arena
    New antennae, decals, and trails
    New holiday items
    Support for new premium DLC
    Custom Training has been added on all platforms.
    Players can now set Arena Preferences on all online Playlists.
    "Champions Crate IV" can now be found rarely after online matches.
    The "Gizmo" and "X-Devil" Battle-Cars have received a visual upgrade.
    Steam Workshop support has been added for map creation on PC.
    Color Blind support has been added.

    The Steam Workshop support will allow players on the PC to create and share their own custom maps, training levels, and fun mini-games, all of which could potentially make their way onto the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in the future as part of a series of free community packs. We'll, of course, have to wait on Psyonix to confirm or deny whether this could be a possibility.

  • Last of Us: Part 2 Revealed

    last-of-us-part-2In perhaps the biggest announcement of the year, The Last of Us: Part 2 has officially been announced.

    We've all wanted it to happen, but none of us ever knew whether it would actually come to be. Thankfully, Naughty Dog has seen the love that was given to the first game and as a result, a sequel is now in the works.

    We don't yet know much about the second game, although the game will definitely star Ellie, and Joel will most likely play a big part too. Naughty Dog's Neil Druckmann has commented on the announcement of The Last of Us: Part 2 by saying, "In the first game, the theme was the love between these two characters... this story's the counter of that. It's about hate."

    That's a pretty big spoiler for the plot point for the sequel. Obviously after the ending of The Last of Us, including Joel and Ellie again seemed like a brave move by Naughty Dog. However, they believe no other characters could have fit into a Last of Us sequel without it feeling like a completely different game.

    "So much thought went into this-- I know there's trepidation about going back to these characters. We feel that as well. No one loves these characters more than we do, and we wouldn't do it if we didn't have the right idea. I had ideas with different characters and it didn't feel right. The Last of Us is about these two characters. All I ask is that fans of the first one put some faith in us-- we're going to do right by you."

    The Last of Us: Part 2 will most likely get a 2018 release.

  • Killing Floor 2 Gets Full Release Launch Trailer

    killing-floor-2-releaseKilling Floor 2 has finally left early access on PC and that means it's coming to Steam and the PS4 as a full release title.

    If you're unfamiliar with the franchise, Killing Floor is a zombie shoot 'em up title that's gory, violent and filled with fast-paced action. The most fun you'll get out of Killing Floor 2 is within the round based survival mode - you'll need to survive for as long as possible, using whatever weapons you can get your hands on. Think of Black Ops Zombies but with much, much more blood.

    Killing Floor 2 is also a great co-op game to play with friends and it'll certainly make a night-in more interesting than ever before.

    The trailer showcases assault rifles, flamethrowers, shotguns and all sorts of other weapons in the player's hands as he and his team of friends group up to take down an onslaught of zombies, and other undead creatures.

    Killing Floor 2 has received a very positive rating from players and critics so far, with a 77/100 metascore critic rating, and an 8.7/10 user score rating at the time of writing. Many of the reviews have pointed out how addictive and engaging the game can be, despite the limited selection between two different game modes.

    No matter how many times you play Killing Floor 2, you'll always find yourself wanting to try new ways to survive for longer. Playing it takes us back to the early days of Call of Duty Zombies. That original excitement has certainly been resurrected with the release of Killing Floor 2.

  • Skyrim Special Edition 1.2 Patch Released

    skyrim-special-edition-1-2-patchA brand new patch for the Skyrim Special Edition has hit the PC and PS4, and a similar update for the Xbox One is in the works. The patch number has been listed as 1.2 and it includes a number of important fixes, and gameplay tweaks.

    After patch 1.1, many players have complained about crashes and other optimization issues - this latest 1.2 patch will address any of these issues. On top of this, the new 1.2 patch will make some much needed changes to some other game bugs that have been pointed out by the community.

    This promoted Bethesda to release a beta patch, version 1.2, to address problems introduced with 1.1. Patch 1.2 is now out of beta and has been made available earlier for everyone to download on PC and PS4. The Xbox One update will arrive later this week, Bethesda said.

    If you're playing on PC, you will no longer have issues with alt-tabbing whilst playing Skyrim Special Edition. The crash that happened when players turned back into a human from the Werewolf form has been fixed, and a crash related to mod load order has also been worked on.

    The mod browser has had some overall improvements as well - console players can now browse mods smoothly and without any freezes or other issues. Bethesda has also released a number of general performance tweaks alongside the other changes listed above.

    Unfortunately, the new 1.2 patch doesn't add any new gameplay features, but the newly fixed mod browser will allow players to download new community content for free.

  • New PS4 4.00 Update Has Launched


    A Major PlayStation 4 system update has just launched and should be rolling out to all regions that support the PS4 as we speak. The new PS4 update brings a number of changes to the user interface that many PlayStation owners will be happy to find out about.

    Firstly, a more refined experience has been added to the main UI with thanks to new system backgrounds, updated system icons and revised pop up notifications and drop down menus to make it easier to navigate through everything.

    Another great change is the adjustments made to the Quick Menu. The new Quick Menu will now no longer take up the entirety of the screen, which means you can still pay attention to what's happening in your game or on your PS4 system and still access the Quick Menu at the same time.

    The Quick Menu also has an improved music player app - you can now quickly skip songs and change music via the USB music player or Spotify app. Sony has also attempted to make it so that the Quick Menu options will be adjusted on the fly for what you're doing at the time. If you're playing a game, the things you'll need first, such as your friend list or incoming invites will appear first, whilst watching a movie may show different options first.

    The new PS4 4.00 update also improves your content library by adding new folders and sub-categories. With everybody’s game library no doubt being a lot bigger than when the PS4 first came out, this new library update comes when it's much needed. Overall tweaks and changes have been made throughout the rest of the PS4 user interface as well.
