The first Red Dead Redemption did well in Japan. So now, Rockstar is plastering posters all over the country.
Spider-Man’s new game plus and ultimate difficulty mode were originally expected at launch but were delayed. Today, a post went up on the European PlayStation Blog that at first said both features would arrive tomorrow, October 17, in the game’s 1.07 update. Insomniac Games now says that information was a mistake.
It’s seldom simple figuring out which, if any, version of a Ubisoft game to buy. Now they’ve made a toys-to-life game that we like, but figuring out which figures and accessories to buy to enjoy Starlink: Battle For Atlas is confusing. Ubisoft complicates things further by allowing players to purchase digital versions…
Hakam Karim likes to collect PlayStation trophies. Like, a lot. Sony first introduced its achievement system with the PS3’s 2.40 firmware update 2. in 2008. Last week, Guinness World Records finally recognized Karim, who goes by Hakoom on PSN, for his prowess with a certificate certifying him as the world’s top…
Ubisoft’s toys-optional toys-to-life space opera arrives this week on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Switch. While I’ve only had a couple of days to dive into the sci-fi adventure, I’ve already found several things to love about Starlink: Battle for Atlas.
Late last Friday, publisher Xseed Games announced Senran Kagura Burst Re:Newal’s December release will be delayed while the company removes some of the sexual content from the PS4 version of the game. They cite “the wishes of the platform holder,” suggesting the removal is due to a changing stance on sexual content on…
The latest Lara Croft adventure has only been out for a month and has already had its ending patched and its DLC delayed. And the most prominent fan complaint? It’s been about Croft’s wardrobe, though not in the way you might have expected.
Disaster Report 4 Plus: Summer Memories has been delayed a month. The game was originally slated for October 25 in Japan but has been pushed back to November 22 because it’s not quite ready for release. The developer apologized for the delay.
The presence of microtransactions in a big video game can poison the player’s experience, leaving them to wonder if things have been designed in a way to drive them to pay extra. So it goes with Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, a very good $60 game that launched with at least $80 in microtransactions.
Sony Interactive Entertainment is suing a California hacker it accuses of trying to sell jailbroken PS4s loaded up with pirated games.
Marvel’s Spider-Man on PS4 doesn’t have an online mode, or microtransactions. For a game of its size, it’s gotten surprisingly few patches since it first came out. Still, it turned out to be one of the more exciting releases of the year and had an active first month.
All gamer parents want video games to be a positive part of family life, and parental controls can help achieve that with minimal arguments. Parental controls on consoles are something that you never think about until you need them. When you have a video-game-obsessed eight-year-old on your hands who sulks every time…
When Insomniac releases a sequel to this year’s smash hit Spider-Man for PS4, don’t you think Mary Jane should get some journalism gameplay? This week on Kotaku Splitscreen, we discuss.
Shadow of the Tomb Raider’s first downloadable add-on, a $5 adventure that focuses on a new tomb that can be played solo or co-op, will be out on November 13. That’s an unexplained delay, given that the game’s season pass had promised seven monthly add-on tombs starting in October.
We at Kotaku have been known to gawk at a video game wave or two. We therefore can’t help but marvel at what’s crashing on the shores in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey.
At a glance, Assassin’s Creed Odyssey looks a lot like last year’s Assassin’s Creed Origins. Despite swapping Egyptian pyramids for Greek temples, the surface-level similarities are numerous. There are plenty of subtle differences, however.
The PS4 Pro is getting a price cut in Japan. Originally priced at 44,980 yen ($394), the PS4 Pro will be 39,980 yen ($351) from October 12. The Glacier White PS4 Pro will also be available as a standard color as it is in North America.
Last month, Soulcalibur fans were disappointed to learn that longtime series regular Tira was not on the main roster for Soulcalibur VI, instead relegated to day one paid downloadable content. She did, however, make it onto the roster for this weekend’s free network test. Great.
For a while now PlayStation fans have been wondering what’s up with 2018’s PlayStation Experience, PlayStation’s annual fan event, since Sony still hadn’t announced dates for it. Today, Shawn Layden, the head of Sony Interactive Entertainment Worldwide Studios, explained that it’s not happening this year.
October’s PlayStation Plus lineup is a bit of a range. Friday the 13th is good for some co-op scares, and there’s also some indie gems in The Bridge and Read Only Memories. As always, these games are only “free” if you have an active PlayStation Plus subscription.
