The PlayStation 5 is in the works, a report from Wired revealed this morning, and it looks like it might be a mother of a console. Featuring a solid state drive and – yes! – backwards compatibility with the PlayStation 4, the PlayStation 5 won’t arrive this year (but maybe in 2020, as Kotaku previously reported). Read More >>

The Into the Spider-Verse Costume in Spider-Man PS4 Is Breaking My Brain, in a Good Way

There are a lot of good costumes in Marvel’s Spider-Man. Like, a lot. They kept adding them, too! And while my dear colleague Germain made a pretty solid case for why the game’s mindbogglingly clever “vintage comics-style” suit is one of its best, the game’s last slice of DLC added what has become my Spidey-Spandex of choice.

The PlayStation Classic Is Minimum Effort Nostalgia 

Even though I know all these retro consoles are largely an effort turn my nostalgia into big-time corporate profits, they’re damn hard to resist. There’s just something about grey plastic and the old school boot up sound that hits a deep part of my brain as few things do, so when I heard Sony was making a retro revival of the original PlayStation, I thought “Great, another mini console to add to the collection.” But after getting to check out Sony’s take on a throwback gaming machine, I feel a bit shortchanged.

Stan Lee’s Spider-Man PS4 Cameo Is So Quintessentially Stan Lee

Stan Lee loved a good cameo. The legendary comics icon, who died yesterday at 95, got to sneak into so many movies based on heroes he’d helped bring to life over the past two decades – and even into some based on ones he didn’t. But maybe the one that best encapsulates Stan Lee as a creative is one of his most recent. Read More >>

PlayStation Classic Plays Fine, But It’s A Bare-Bones Experience

With the PlayStation Classic’s release less than a month away, I went to PlayStation HQ this week for three hours of hands-on time with Sony’s nostalgic mini-console. It plays its selection of 32-bit classics like Final Fantasy VII and Resident Evil: Director’s Cut just fine, but the features of the device are pretty much the bare minimum. Read More >>

Here’s The Full List of Games on the Upcoming PlayStation Classic

The PlayStation Classic was announced last month, but at the time Sony only revealed the names of five games that would make up part of its library: Final Fantasy VII, Jumping Flash!, R4 Ridge Racer Type 4, Tekken 3 and Wild Arms. Arguably four great games (plus Jumping Flash!, which I still don't know anything about), and of course it's led to a lot of speculation about the other games that would make up the mini console's library of 20.

Next week, the excellent Spider-Man game for PS4 is getting its first piece of downloadable content. It’s a new mission that brings Felicia Hardy, the Black Cat herself, back into Peter Parker’s Spandex-clad life.

The PS4 Finally Has a Super Customisable Controller, and It Is Excellent

It’s taken more years than it should have, but it’s finally here, a PS4-friendly answer to Microsoft’s ultra-customisable Elite controller. The Scuf Vantage might look like a weird third-party peripheral of old, but this officially licensed controller finally delivers all the weird little tweaks I demand, except now configured to actually work with my PS4.

Marvel’s Spider-Man Understands the Amazing Fantasy of Becoming Peter Parker 

Spider-Man has a long history in video games – one that arguably has seen more lows than highs. Even in a world where superheroes are bigger than ever, Spider-Man is still waiting for a groundbreaking gaming experience like the Arkham series was for Batman. He might have finally got it in Marvel’s Spider-Man. Read More >>
