The Nintendo Switch has finally been revealed. The three-minute trailer, above, gives us our first official look at the long-awaited console.
As rumored, the new console is a console-portable hybrid that will use cartridges rather than discs. In the trailer, a man lifts the core of the console from a home base station, attaches to controller accessories, and plays Zelda on the go. In a later sequence, the two controllers disconnect, and players play a multiplayer on the standalone screen. In another scene, four players play Mario Kart by sharing two controllers. A traditional wireless controller also works with the devices both in its console and portable forms.
Much like the sun rising in the East and Apple unleashing a new iPhone, EA has graced us with yet another entry in the long-running FIFA series. And like every FIFA game before it, FIFA 17 promises to be the best game in the franchise ever. Well, until next year’s edition anyway. But is it really any good or simply more of the same? We find out.
Nintendo is reportedly planning to return to old-school game cartridges for its next home console, codenamed the NX. This is according to The Wall Street Journal, which cites anonymous sources familiar with the matter. However, it's not the first time we've heard this rumor about the NX, which will be launching globally in March 2017, and is expected to be some sort of hybrid device that works on your TV, but also as a portable console.
If you missed out on the PlayStation 3's catalogue of games, which includes classics such as The Last of Us, God of War III and the Uncharted series, you now have a chance to play (or replay) them on your PC, thanks to the PS Now streaming service.
With Sony bringing PS Now to PC for residents of the UK, US and Canada, you're able to play over 400 PS3 games on your desktop or laptop – and a steady stream of new games are being added to the library every month.
As soon as we found out the Pro Evolution 2017 Demo is available on PlayStation, we downloaded it and started playing. If you have a PS4, Xbox One, Xbox 360 or a PS3, you can do the same. Based on our two days with the demo, we think you won't be disappointed with PES 2017.
With FIFA 16, rival EA took the simulation route, trying to make the game as life-like as possible. The game has slowed down considerably, made defending a lot harder, and found the right balance between attack and defence. This makes FIFA extremely tough to compete against. So how does PES answer? By making the game as arcadey as possible of course.
I can’t quit you, PC gaming.
Unlike some diehard “PC or nothing” enthusiasts, I don’t harbor any innate hatred toward consoles. Heck, my earliest gaming memory is of playing Super Mario Bros. until midnight, after my dad came home with a Nintendo tucked under his arm when I was five. I enjoyed the Xbox 360 so much that I burned through five of them.
The next major system software update for the PS4, known as version 3.50, codenamed Musashi is out tomorrow. It has been available to those on Sony's preview program but will finally be available to the general public.
A decade after it was first revealed, Final Fantasy XV has been given a release date: September 30, 2016.
The game, as it was then titled, Final Fantasy Versus XIII was first announced at E3 2006 for the yet-to-be released PlayStation 3. In 2013, it was rebranded as Final Fantasy XV and moved to the current generation of consoles, the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
if you’re like me, then you may have missed out on the Atari 2600 and Atari arcade games. Having moved to the United States in the late 80’s, my first home console was a Nintendo Entertainment System. While I knew of Atari as a kid, I wasn’t exactly interested in playing on an old system like the 2600 when I had the NES with its (at the time) more powerful graphics.
Last week, Xbox head Phil Spencer discussed how the Xbox One will see new hardware iterations in the same way other consumer technologies do. He wasn’t 100% clear with this message, which of course led to all manner of speculation on what he could have meant. Though it seemed to me that he said the Xbox One would see upgraded hardware iterations like a smartphone do, others believed Spencer’s comments suggested that the Xbox One would become modular like a PC.
