Video: GTA 5 looks way better on PC than it does on PS4 or PS3

One of the most anticipated PC games of 2015 already came out on PS3 and Xbox 360 two years ago. That’s right, I’m talking about Grand Theft Auto V, the perpetually delayed bestseller that’s finally coming to PC later this month. For some people, an upgrade to the PC version will be the second or third time they’ve bought the game, so why spend another $60?

I’ll show you. More →

The PlayStation 4’s most anticipated feature is coming in the next update

The PlayStation 4’s most anticipated feature is coming in the next update

I’ve been up front about my feelings regarding Sony’s disappointing pace for PS4 updates. The Xbox One monthly update schedule is not only impressive, but it also gives gamers a reason to come back and check out new features even when game releases begin to slow down. PS4 owners, on the other hand, have to wait months for any significant updates.

There’s no sign of that changing any time soon, but Sony might be able to at least appease disappointed PS4 owners (like me) by adding a significant new feature in the next update. More →

Over the past few months, we’ve been producing more gaming content than ever before here at BGR. The BGR Gaming initiative is still in its infancy, but our YouTube channel has been updated with a steady stream of content over the past few weeks, and we hope to pick up the pace in March with even more videos.

Today, I’m taking a look at Helldivers, the PlayStation exclusive top-down shooter that released earlier this week. More →

PS4 Spring Fever 2015

PS4 Spring Fever 2015: 8 new games over the next 8 weeks

PS4 Spring Fever 2015: 8 new games over the next 8 weeks

At the dawn of a new console generation, there are inevitably going to be long stretches without many major game releases. Although The Order: 1886 just came out and Bloodborne and Battlefield Hardline are coming soon, you probably won’t have to quit your job to stay caught up.

At least, that was the case until Sony announced its Spring Fever 2015 sale for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3 and PS Vita.

Batman: Arkham Knight Gotham Trailer

Batman: Arkham Knight trailer brings violence and chaos back to Gotham

Batman: Arkham Knight trailer brings violence and chaos back to Gotham

Although we were treated to three pretty fantastic Batman movies from 2005 to 2012, the future of the franchise remains up in the air. It’s not that we don’t trust Ben Affleck to do a good job, we’re just not entirely sure how DC is going to reboot the character.

Basically, change is scary — but one familiar Batman series still has one story left to tell. More →

PS4 Share Play Delete Data

Only use PS4’s Share Play with people you trust – here’s why

Only use PS4’s Share Play with people you trust – here’s why

Share Play is one of the most interesting features on the PlayStation 4. If you’ve never used it, Share Play allows you to hand over control of your game to another player over the Internet. You’ll still see the game on your TV, but another player will be running, jumping, shooting and climbing.

Unfortunately, that player might also be irreversibly erasing your progress too. More →

Rock Band PS4 Xbox One

Rock Band is reportedly being revived on PS4 and Xbox One

Rock Band is reportedly being revived on PS4 and Xbox One

One of the biggest crossover hits in the history of multiplayer gaming vanished off the face of the Earth not with a bang, but with a whimper. Rock Band 3, the final game in the main Rock Band series as of now, launched on the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Wii in 2010 to relatively disappointing sales. Consumers just weren’t as interested in huge plastic peripherals as they had been in years past.

The Order: 1886 Review

‘The Order: 1886′ review: Tale as old as time

‘The Order: 1886′ review: Tale as old as time

This is the most difficult game review I’ve ever had to write. Not because I lost a few of my fingers or because I don’t want to upset anyone, but because I’m not entirely sure what I’m reviewing.

The Order: 1886 is more of an interactive television series than it is a video game. This is what I had come to assume after previewing the game multiple times before launch, but I was still taken aback by just how much of this game didn’t require any input on my part. Entire chapters would whisk by without me ever having to pick up my controller.

PS4 vs. Xbox One Sales

PS4 expected to continue crushing the Xbox One through 2019

PS4 expected to continue crushing the Xbox One through 2019

There are plenty of great reasons to buy an Xbox One. I still stand by my assessment at the end of 2014 in which I decided that the Xbox One has evolved into a better console than the PlayStation 4 in many regards, but unsurprisingly, the market isn’t showing a very strong reaction to my articles.
