  • Crash N.Sane Gets Insane First Sales Week

    crash n.sane first sales weekThe Crash N.Sane trilogy has received some pretty spectacular first week sales, and it presents some potential for a brand new future of Crash Bandicoot games.

    As well as breaking some first week sales records this year, the Crash N.Sane trilogy has quickly jumped to the top of the sales charts and it's looking to be the hottest drop this year, despite the PS4 exclusivity.

    In the UK, more people bought Crash Bandicoot in the first week than people purchase Horizon Zero Dawn, making it the biggest selling first week title in the UK so far this year.

    In other news, it's been reported that the Crash N.Sane trilogy may be making its way to the Xbox One. While the Crash Bandicoot remaster was first launched as a PS4 exclusive title, the huge reception the game has received has pushed Naughty Dog to consider publishing it on the Xbox One.

    Recently, XboxAchievements reported that the Crash N.Sane trilogy will be getting an Xbox One release on December 8 this year.

    Hopefully, this recent success will just be the start of a very successful future for the Crash Bandicoot franchise. There's no doubt that a lot of people out there absolutely love Sony's furry orange bandicoot.

    What are your thoughts on the new Crash N.Sane trilogy? The game is a port of the first three Crash Bandicoot games that originally launched on the PlayStation One and PS2. New versions of Crash Bandicoot were built in recent years, but nothing could outperform the success of the original trilogy.

  • Uncharted 4 will Shed Light on Nathan Drake's Mysterious Past

    Nathan Drake may be one of the most appreciated characters from within the range of PlayStation exclusive franchises released over the years but there's a lot that the fans don't know about him. Through the first three games we do learn quite a lot about Nathan Drake and his personality type, but I honestly know very little about his past and there's still a lot about him that remains mysterious.

    Fortunately Uncharted 4: A Thief's End will have a big approach on Nathan Drake's childhood, revealing details about his upbringing according to lead designer Ricky Cambier.

    If you're already aware of the current details released about Uncharted 4, you will know that the game will introduce Nathan's older brother, Sam Drake to the players. Ricky Cambier mentioned in an interview that, "We don't know a lot about his childhood and what happened." "We bring a character like Sam in and now you get to meet his older brother. And you get to see a little about what that relationship is like and how formidable that was to who Nathan Drake is."

    Obviously Uncharted 4 is going to be the final title for the franchise, at least as the main story arc is concerned, so the Naughty Dog team have a big task on their hands if they want to wrap things up properly. Naughty Dog seem to think they've done a good job and I personally believe they have what it takes to send out the franchise with a bang.

    Naughty Dog's Arne Meyer ended with "At the end of Uncharted 4, we've put together a great closing chapter for Nathan Drake and his adventures. It feels really great for us to wrap up some of his storylines and answer some of these questions. I hope our fans feel the same way. It feels like a good time for us to step away from the entire series."

  • Beyond Two Souls Out November 24 on PS4

    After a long wait, the release date for the PlayStation 4 version of Beyond Two Souls has been announced. Once November 24 hits, players will be able to purchase the remastered version of Beyond Two Souls for the PlayStation 4.

    The new version of Beyond Two Souls on the PlayStation 4 will differ slightly from the original version. Firstly the game has been upgraded with new HD graphics, making the game look even nicer than the original PS3 release.

    The new version of the game will cost players $29.99 and will be available from the PlayStation store starting November 24. On top of the HD 1080p resolution improvements, the game now has motion blur, bloom and depth of field effects, as well as improved lighting and shadows. The game also makes use of the DualShock 4 speaker to improve immersion when playing as the Entity.

    A new feature will also show what decisions you've made at the end of each scene and you'll be able to see how you compare to other player's decisions. The new PS4 version of Beyond Two Souls also allows players to now play each scene in chronological order.

    On top of the Beyond Two Souls release, Heavy Rain will be launched on PlayStation 4 as a remake on March 1, 2016.

    Now that Beyond Two Souls is available on PlayStation 4, will you be trying out the game? If you've already played the game on PS3 will you consider picking up the upgraded version?

  • Tomb Raider and Dead Nation Part of March's PS Plus Instant Game Collection

    Sony have always been fairly generous with their PS Plus loyalty features, but the most appealing feature that has given many gamers a reason to subscribe is the access to the monthly PS Plus Instant Game Collection.

    The Instant Game Collection is a rotation of video games that players will be able to download for free each month. At the end of the month, a new set of games is put on the rota, and the other games are no longer available for those who hadn't already redeemed them.

    This month, the most recent Tomb Raider title will be put up for free for all US PlayStation Plus subscribers. The game will be the last gen version, and not the new definitive version. However, there certainly isn't any complaining to do, because Tomb Raider was a very amazing game that was released quite recently.

    For PlayStation 4 owners, players will be treated to Dead Nation: Apocalypse Edition. These two games will be available for the first half of the month, whilst later in the month, Thomas Was Alone, Lone Survivor: Director's Cut, and Vita exclusives Unit 13 and Monster Hunter Freedom Unite will be put on the Instant Game Collection rota.

    Despite the PS Plus subscription working out as a monthly subscription, many gamers have got more than their money's worth out of the loyalty programs, and the Instant Game Collection alone proves to be a great way to save money on recently released titles.
