Black Friday for gamers – PS4 and Xbox Edition

It’s that time of the year again, when South Africans try to figure out how to do this Black Friday thing. If there’s one piece of advice we can give you it’s that online shopping is your friend. Especially if you’re a gamer who’d rather get some sessions in than face the stampedes. Luckily, PlayStation and Xbox have launched their annual Black Friday sale already, and it’ll run until after payday...[Read More]

PlayStation has dropped out of E3 2019

The Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) has just lost one of the big three consoles for 2019’s show. Sony has decided to pull PlayStation out of E3 2019, and do… something different. We don’t officially know what that something is but E3 organisers and Sony confirmed that the next event will be PlayStation-less. Considering the massive presence Sony normally has at the show,  E3 will have a f...[Read More]

The next PlayStation DualShock controller could have a touchscreen

Let’s be honest, the PlayStation DualShock 4 controllers are damn near perfect. But a recent patent filing in the US suggest the upcoming models might feature a touchscreen. The patent was granted to Sony last month, and detailed a design that includes a touch-display where the touchpad is located on current models. Rumours have suggested that the upcoming PS controllers might look something like ...[Read More]

Sony reveals the full list of PlayStation Classic games

Console makers understand that gamers can get nostalgic, and sometimes excessively so. That’s why we’ve seen the release of the SNES Classic Mini, the NES Classic, and the Sega Megadrive Mini. Now Sony has jumped on the train to Nostalgiatown (which is right next to Flavourtown, we believe) and will release the PlayStation Classic mini console based on their first bit of gaming hardwar...[Read More]

Red Dead Redemption 2 will have a companion app at launch

Gamers of all shapes, sizes, and types are (not so) patiently awaiting Red Dead Redemption 2, set to land tomorrow, 26 October. We’re already camping outside our local BT Games. In spirit.  Red Dead Redemption 2 is based in a giant open world, and although we haven’t experienced it yet, it’s likely the sheer scale might find many players getting lost in the woods. We will definitely have a mini-ma...[Read More]

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey – Have spear, will travel

Assassin’s Creed has been around for eleven years now and Ubisoft are, technically, still telling the same story. They’re just finding different ways of doing it. From Assassin’s Creed in 2007 to Assassin’s Creed III in 2012 the company used Subject 17, Desmond Miles, to link their historical assassination epics together, moving over to unnamed present-day protagonists (inc...[Read More]

Sean Bean is tired of being killed on TV, opts to be an Elusive Target in Hitman 2

The developers of the highly anticipated Hitman 2 have announced who one of the main targets in the game will be — and it’s none other than oft-killed actor, Sean Bean. Developers behind the Hitman series, IO Interactive, revealed the first post-release content for the upcoming Hitman 2. It includes the subject of the player’s first Elusive Target, good ol’ Bean, who cheekily mentions that h...[Read More]

Microsoft announces Project xCloud, their own game streaming service

The world is quickly moving towards not owning any physical content — we’ve gone from downloading and copying movies and series from various sources, to streaming everything on Netflix and Showmax. So what’s the obvious next step? Streaming games, obviously — well, that’s what PlayStation, Google and now Microsoft believe. Recently, Google launched a game streaming service test c...[Read More]

From playing titles that haven’t even released yet, to top-of-the-range hardware for the PC builders, and Fortnite competitions for the fort builders — rAge Expo is underway and you absolutely have to check it out if you have a single gaming cell in your body. South Africa’s largest gaming expo runs from 5 to 7 October 2018 (in other words, today until Sunday) at the Ticketpro Dome in Northg...[Read More]

Razer announces Sila, its first gaming router

Razer has announced their rather sleek-looking new Sila wireless gaming router. The green-and-black gaming gear maker claims that Sila is the fastest gaming-focused router on the scene. Riiiiight. Okay, it’s possibly true. We’ll have to get our hands on one to be sure but Razer’s first router has a substantial amount of tech built in that makes their claim… pretty reasonabl...[Read More]

Google testing Project Stream, an in-browser game streaming function for Chrome

We’re getting more and more used to streaming our content — whether it’s video files from a media server or music and video from Spotify and Netflix. The next target is gaming, obviously, and while there are solutions out there — like not-available-in-SA PlayStation Now — Google’s got a slightly different idea called Project Stream. Project Stream is a streaming...[Read More]

Games to watch: Five of the best titles launching in October 2018

It’s that time again, when folks who are very fond of games batten down the hatches and spend a whole lot of time in the comfiest chair they can find. While never, ever leaving the house for anything. Usually game releases peak at the end of October but this year’s release lists are packed from start to finish — it’s no wonder everyone has started early. The hardest part of...[Read More]
