It was just last week that a new patch for The Last of Us: Remastered on the PS4 managed to reduce the game’s loading time by a drastic and unexpected 70-percent. To put this into perspective, the game used to take around a minute and a half to load, but with the new patch, you’re playing in just 13 seconds – that’s a huge improvement indeed, but The Last of Us: Remastered, isn’t the only game to see such a big improvement.
A number of first-part Sony Exclusives have also been patched in the same style over the past few weeks, including God of War, Horizon Zero Dawn, Until Dawn, Dreams, Concrete Genie, and even Ghost of Tsushima. Not all games saw such a massive improvement, but God of War and Ghost of Tsushima saw crazy improvements while reports are coming in that loading times...
Sony has finally spilled the beans on backward compatibility, and we have some good news. In a blog post, Sony has confirmed that all PlayStation 4 games, with the exception of 11 games will be playable on the PS5. That’s 11 unplayable games out of more than 4,000, so we’re going to go ahead and write this one off as a win.
Of all the games that aren’t compatible with the PlayStation 5, the only one that you’ll probably even recognize is Hitman Go: Definite Edition. The rest are, well, not important anyway.

Sony is all set to launch the PlayStation 5 this holiday season, but while Microsoft is starting to kill of production of the Xbox One, PlayStation is clear that there’s still a lot to come for the PS4 and has even gone so far as to say there’s still a lot of life left in the console. Strange? Perhaps, but it’s not as strange as you might think.
Eric Lempel, the Worldwide Head of PlayStation Marketing discusses the company’s outlook on the PS4 at the end of Today’s Summer Games Festival DualSense reveal. Lempal made it very clear that the PS4 was still important to the company and that PS4 owners shouldn’t worry if they can’t upgrade right when the PS5 launches.
“We believe that all of these things combined, as well as all the other great PS5 features we've spoken about, really lead to a...
The Last of Us 2 was announced way back in 2016, and it’s been a long four years. Things were starting to look up last September when we heard it was coming to PlayStation 4 on February 21, 2020, but it was delayed once again. Now, we’re learning that it has been delayed for an indefinite amount of time because of the impact of the Coronavirus – something that’s been affecting game studios across the world.
Official word came directly from PlayStation via twitter where it announced that both Marvel’s Iron Man VR and The Last of Us 2 will be delayed.
“ has made the difficult decision to delay the launch of The Last of Us Part II and Marvel's Iron Man VR until further notice. Logistically, the global crisis is preventing us from providing the launch experience our players deserve.”
The only good news from...
Out of nowhere, Sony has revealed five new PS4 games in concurrent announcements, some of which will be familiar and some of which, you’ve never heard of. Here’s each and every game, and their new game trailers.
Remember when Call of Duty took you into space, well Boundry is a FPS set in the same light; kind of. It’s a first-person shooter set in deep space – not on a planet, not within view of the Earth, but literally in the middle of nowhere. So, put yourself in this role: You’re in the cold void of space with nothing more than the satellite you’re stranded on and guns. As best we can tell from the trailer, you’ll be able to choose from multiple players – Astroperators, as they are called – each of which have their own unique abilities. The idea is derived from the...
News has been slowly trickling in for Sony’s PlayStation 5, and
now that Sony has spilled a few (but far from all) beans about the next-gen
console, third-party game anouncements are starting to come in too. Following
the announcement of
Godfall and WRC 9, Teamkill Media as announced that it’s working on the PS5’s
first horror game known as Quantum Error. For now, there is very little to go
by, and as you can see from the trailer, there’s not much to take away, but it
sort of looks like what Prey should have been or a blend between F.E.A.R and
Quantum Error is described as a “cosmic horror first-person
shooter,” but the company creating it as shared precious little. Check out
teamkillmedia.com doesn’t yield any information either as the only press and
news assets refer to the company’s first game Kings of Lorn. We do know that
Quantum Error will launch for the...

The NPD Group has crunched the numbers and released a list of the best-selling games from 2010-2019 across all platforms, inlcuding PC, PlayStation, Nintendo, and Xbox. Call of Duty's presence can't be denied but you still have to give GTA V some credit for landing the No. 1 spot.

Confirmed – The PlayStation 5 Will Load Games Faster
One of the biggest problems with gaming is loading time. If
you’re a PC gamer, you can simply upgrade to an ultra-fast SSD and – with the
right hardware – you’ll cut down loading times exponentially. But, if you’re a
console gamer, you’re stuck with whatever hardware the console comes with. You
can always buy an external SSD, but it’ll only do so much. Sony is looking to
solve that problem, and even make it so that games load instantly. This has
been confirmed by a recent patent that tells use Sony is looking to give the
PlayStation 5 a RAM-intensive loading system which should dramatically lower
game loading times to as little as a second or two.

Sony might not be jumping on the same disc-less
bandwagon that Microsoft is riding, but that doesn’t mean that...
In a past interview with Wired, Sony lead architect Mark Cerny has stated new details regarding the PS5, the most notable of which is that there is no way it will be announced or released this year. A new report, however, now states that the PlayStation 5 also won’t be making an appearance within the next 12 months. A reporter for the Wall Street Journal took to Twitter to break the news, essentially saying that Sony is telling various reporters during Q&A sessions that we will not be seeing the next-gen console sometime within the year.
This could, however, narrow down three possible release dates for the PlayStation 5: a summer launch date which can coincide with E3, should Sony decide to attend the event again; fall 2020, which is likely considering an announcement could be made in advance during E3; or maybe even a holiday launch, which...
