This isn’t how I wanted to begin this review, but I think it’s important to get it out of the way as quickly as possible: the Uncharted series has never done much for me.
I’ve been in awe of the visuals and appreciated the storytelling chops of the writers, but the action on screen was so often at odds with the plot that I could never really find a foothold into the world that Naughty Dog had created.
Although it has its fair share of contradictions as well, Uncharted 4 is the first game in the series that has really hooked me, and now I’m finally starting to see what I imagine everyone else saw when Uncharted hit the PS3 in 2007.
We’re only a few years into the latest generation of gaming consoles, but that hasn’t stopped gamers from speculating about future hardware. Even as the PS4 and Xbox One continue to fly off store shelves, analysts and consumers alike have begun to assume that these could be the last standalone home consoles.
Adding fuel to the fire, one Sony executive seemed to imply to a developer not only that the PlayStation 5 wasn’t in production, but that there might not be a PS5 at all.
About a month ago, rumors of an upgraded PlayStation 4 console began to spread across the internet. The new model, dubbed PS4.5 or PS4K by fans, is expected to support 4K resolution, but little else had been revealed until Giant Bomb was able to confirm several huge details with multiple sources this week.
Earlier this week, Sony unleashed system software update 3.50 for the PlayStation 4. The addition of Remote Play for PC was certainly the highlight of the update, but given a few days to tinker with their consoles, gamers have found several other new features that weren’t announced before the update went live.

The dawn of VR gaming came and went without a great deal of fanfare. Sure, every technology blog on the internet is excitedly declaring virtual reality to be the next big thing, but the average consumer (or even the average gamer) simply doesn’t have the hardware to run a game in VR.
That’s where PlayStation VR is going to break boundaries this fall.
At the beginning of March, Sony announced that it would bring the PS4’s Remote Play feature to PC with the launch of the next system software update. Just over a month later, the release date of the update has arrived, which means that PS4 owners will now be able to play PS4 games on their computers. More →
After suffering through a couple of painstaking delays over the past several months, gamers are finally going to get their hands on Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End in May. If you’re a fan of the series, you might be wondering why it took Naughty Dog so long to get this sequel out the door, but after having spent a few hours with Uncharted 4 last week, I can assure you that it’s going to be worth the wait.

Having watched every preview video and read every interview on the Internet, I wasn’t sure No Man’s Sky could do anything to surprise me. On Thursday, I had a chance to play the universe simulator from Hello Games for the very first time, and although I knew what to expect, I came away with a surprising revelation:
No Man’s Sky has the potential to be the best RPG ever made. More →
Wednesday night was the night that Final Fantasy fans have waited fifteen years to experience. In 2006, Square Enix announced that Final Fantasy XV (née Final Fantasy Versus XIII) was in development. Ten years later, at the Uncovered: Final Fantasy XV event in California, a release date was revealed: September 30th, 2016.
But the release date was only one of more than a dozen announcements that the Square Enix team prepared. Read on to find out everything the company announced at its big spring event on March 30th.
Earlier this week, ID@Xbox director Chris Charla seemed to imply in a post on the Xbox Wire that Microsoft would be willing to link up with Sony in order to allow for cross-network play between Xbox Live and PSN players. Of course, Charla didn’t actually mention the PlayStation 4 by name, so it only makes sense that Sony’s response would be equally cryptic.
Taking the stage for a press event at GDC 2016 on Tuesday, Sony finally unveiled the price and release date for the PlayStation VR headset — a device which was originally known as Project Morpheus.
Although it was originally scheduled to launch in the first half of the year, Sony now says the PlayStation VR will launch in October for $399.
