    2018’s Spider-Man is headed to the PlayStation 5, but buying it won’t be straightforward. Sony has confirmed to Kotaku that Spider-Man Remastered — the updated PS5 version — won’t be sold as a standalone title or offered as a free upgrade for existing Spider-Man owners. Instead, the only way to buy it will be as part of the $69.99 Spider-Man: Miles Morales Ultimate Edition bundle, which couples the PS5 version of the upcoming spinoff with Spider-Man Remastered. (Miles Morales typically costs $49.99 on its own.) The issue is, as with several other cross-generational games, there are actually two versions of Spider-Man: the regular PS4 version that’s been around since 2018 and a new edition of the game called Spider-Man Remastered,...
    Cast your mind back, if you can, to the tender world of gadgets circa 2011. Apple had just launched Siri on the iPhone, Google was making its biggest push into social networking with Google Plus, and Sony had decided it was time to release a true gaming smartphone: the much-anticipated “PlayStation Phone,” officially dubbed the Xperia Play. It was not, by any means, a great success. A 2011 Engadget review praised the phone’s sliding mechanism and gamepad but bemoaned its dim screen and lack of playable titles. The device had its fans, though, many of whom were excited in 2012 by whispers of an Xperia Play 2. This promised sequel never emerged, but eight years after the PlayStation Phone...
    Microsoft’s new Xbox consoles sold out across all major American retailers within minutes of preorders going live Tuesday morning. Demand for the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S systems crashed the preorder pages of Amazon, Walmart, GameStop and Target shortly after being made available. It even took down Microsoft’s Xbox ordering website. Gamers hoping to get their hands on one of the new Xbox consoles were met with an error screen on Amazon, while Walmart’s and GameStop’s pages didn’t even load due to the traffic. Repeated attempts by The Post to reserve a unit at Target saw this reporter reach the checkout page, only to have the site refresh to an empty cart. A Twitter search for the...
    Bethesda Softworks and Microsoft’s games division have had a tight relationship going back to the first Xbox. It’s about to get a lot closer. Though Bethesda’s big works have also launched on PlayStation 3 and 4, if games like The Elder Scrolls or Fallout series had a lead platform over the past 18 years, it’d be Xbox. Todd Howard, the creative director of Bethesda Game Studios, said as much in a note Monday morning about the acquisition. He pointed out that The Elder Scrolls 3: Morrowind’s launch on Xbox in 2002 was a gamble for both companies. “I was dubious Xbox Morrowind would be worth the time, somewhat on a technical level, but more so from taking a hardcore RPG...

    Sony’s PlayStation 4 had the perfect foil in the Xbox One. In 2013, Microsoft came out with a confused, entertainment-centric pitch: The new Xbox would be the all-in-one entertainment hub of your living room, delivering live television, apps, NFL football, and video games to early console adopters. In every box, Microsoft packed a Kinect motion controller, the gadget that brought the Xbox to Ellen and Oprah. Steven Spielberg was going to make a Halo TV series for Microsoft, which … maybe you could watch on your new Xbox? The PlayStation 4, on the other hand, would play video games. And, in the early days of the new generation, the PS4 would play games better and more cheaply than Microsoft’s new...

Pre-order shenanigans aside though, here are all the biggest questions that Sony left unanswered after the PlayStation...

    Sony has finally announced the price for PlayStation 5, and it was perhaps the best bit of a brilliant showcase. With the PS5 disk edition priced at $499 and the digital edition priced at $399, Sony may well have already won the war of next-gen consoles. Microsoft had revealed the price for Xbox Series X and Series S a week ago to be $499 and $299, respectively. The real game-changer is possibly the price of the digital version of PS5. Although the Xbox Series S is priced at a lowly $299, it is a far inferior machine compared to the Series X and PS5. It is likely gamers wouldn’t mind shelling out an extra $100 to get their hands...

    The last two console generations from Microsoft and Sony — spanning from the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 all the way to the PlayStation 4 Pro and Xbox One X — have been transformative in terms of audio quality. Consumers have been able to move away from high-fidelity tuners and sprawling surround-sound speaker systems to relatively inexpensive and high-quality headphones.

Rumors had pegged the high-end PlayStation 5 as selling for as much...

Scott Pilgrim vs the World: The Game Complete Edition lands this holiday season for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Switch, Stadia and PC. It includes the full game, plus the Knives Chau and Wallace Wells add-on packs. Like all off-shoots of the Scott Pilgrim franchise so far, the game is fairly fantastic.

It focuses on Ethan, a brooding warrior type that seemingly lost everything to a fire-breathing dragon. With the help of a Pawn — the original game’s term for a player-assisting character — he seeks vengeance against the creature and, along the way, unlocks some kind of demonic power. “For when you fight a monster… you just may become one too,” the video description on YouTube teases. Dragon’s Dogma was originally released for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox...

    Moon, the 1997 PlayStation role-playing game that poked fun at role-playing game conventions, is coming to Nintendo Switch on Aug. 27. It will be the game’s first official release in English. The designer of Moon, Yoshiro Kimura, has called the game an “anti-RPG.” Moon addresses the bizarre behaviors of many RPG heroes, who rudely enter people’s homes in search of items and clues, and who slay thousands of creatures for items and experience, and adds a playful twist. Players do not assume the role of the traditional hero, but that of a boy who is sucked into his television and into an in-game RPG called Moon World.

    The first-person shooter is running in 720p resolution at 30 frames per second here, and sure, it’s bound to look better on PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4. Still, Crytek actually made it work on Switch with dynamic lighting, explosions and a decent depth of field. If you do opt for the Switch version, you can use gyroscopic controls for aiming, too. You’ll get to find out for yourself just how well the Nintendo Switch can run Crysis Remastered when the game comes out on July 23rd. It’ll hit PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 a bit later.
    We know a fair bit about the PlayStation 5 controller. For starters, it has a two-tone aesthetic that looks dramatically different from the DualShock 4 and every PlayStation pad that came before it. (I still think it looks like a tiny robot from Detroit: Become Human.) We know that it features adaptive triggers which can provide resistance while gaming (to simulate the feeling of drawing a bow, or driving a car through thick mud), better rumble — sorry, “haptic feedback” — and a built-in microphone. The lightbar has been moved to the sides of the touch pad, the Share button is now a ‘Create’ shortcut, and the Home button looks like the classic PlayStation logo. But what’s it like to...

Crash Bandicoot: On the Run is, as one might expect, a runner-style game that pits Crash and Coco against Dr. Neo Cortex and his henchmen.

    The #StopHateForProfit boycott now has more than 300 participants, and its organizers are calling for an international expansion as well. At this point, Facebook has had very little response to the boycott, with a VP reportedly telling advertisers that the company doesn’t m ake policy changes due to revenue pressure. Surprisingly enough, even hundreds of big-name brands pulling their ads for July might not even make much of a hit to Facebook’s bottom line — according to CNN , only a few of the top 25 spenders on Facebook have pulled their campaigns. Either way, the optics of this campaign aren’t great for Facebook, a company that continues to struggle with its public image. Whether the company makes concrete change...

    The PlayStation 2 is over 20 years old, but it’s still difficult to hack if you want to run homebrew games without tweaking the hardware. You usually need to install a modchip, buy a specially-configured memory card or even pry the system open to block the disc reader’s sensors. However, it might just be a matter of using the discs themselves to fool the console. Security software engineer CTurt has developed a homebrew app method that exploits the DVD player function to run unofficial code. The approach involves corrupting key functions in the files DVD movies always contain, and then loading a second, more advanced stage that isn’t constrained like the first. The technique is still young, but already works...
