Finally there’s clarity why there’s no EA Access on PS4

Since the exclusive Xbox One deal there’s been some people on PlayStation platforms who’s been a bit unhappy about the news and others who frankly could not care. In an interview with Shuhei Yoshida he finally explained the situation, and I for one think he’s got a very good point. Here’s what he told Eurogamer: [quote]Question: I’d like to talk about the EA Access is...

Looks like Silent Hills will not be exclusive to the PS4

After discovering that the Playable Teaser (P.T.) was in fact a new Silent Hill game from Hideo Kojima, named Silent Hills, everyone was caught off-guard. No one expected that at all. Since then we’ve had several local players share their thoughts on Twitter, whereby most would shut the game down after about 10 mins of playing (if that). So, Hideo is definitely pulling all the right strings....

Console exclusive characters to appear in Mortal Kombat X DLC

This is nothing new for the genre. We’ve seen console exclusive characters since Namco started the trend with the release of SoulCalibur 2 on PS2, Xbox and Gamecube. The PS2 version had Heihachi, Xbox got Spawn and the GameCube saw Link from the Legend of Zelda. Later on SoulCalbiur IV saw Darth Vader and Yoda being used on PS3 and Xbox 360, but  ultimately ended up being available on both c...

Do you think we’ll see no more PS4 announcements this year? Think again

The PlayStation Gamescom presentation left a divide amongst gamers. Some loved the announcements of new games such as Silent Hills (P.T.), Tearaway and Wild, to name a few. Others thought that the lack of new AAA games was a bit of a disappointment. Well, according to Shuhei Yoshida there are more PS4 announcements in store for the Tokyo Games Show (TGS) later this year. In an interview with Famit...

Shareplay on PS4 will not exceed 60 minutes

In an interview at Gamescom with Jim Ryan, PlayStation Europe, he confirmed that SharePlay on the PS4 will lock you down to 60 minutes per session. If that includes multiple sessions or per person, per day or per week, or whatever – we don’t know. We were quite skeptical after it was announced as it opened up the chance for many people to simply not buy any games. We’ll still tak...

If you feel like a bit of a challenge and own a PS4, then you might want to pre-order Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor. The PS4 version of the game will include exclusive missions featuring some of Sauron’s toughest warriors. If you pre-order on any platform you grab yourself the Dark Ranger character skin and Test of Power Challenge mode. However, the PS4 has exclusive Legion Edition missions, that...

Hello everyone and welcome to the third edition of Prediction Time where I ask the SA Gamer staff to look into their crystal balls and predict what they think will happen… PUT YOUR BALLS AWAY GARTH! Anyway, so this time I asked the guys which console will win the new generation console war. Will it be the PS4, Xbox One or the Wii U? Here’s what they had to say: Jarred I think it’...

What Did Sony’s Gamescom Escapade Have For Us?

The Sony Gamescom conference is done and dusted and by all means it was a pretty impressive showing. There were no super surprises like the Tomb Raider one from Microsoft, but we did get a ton of games shown that we can look forward to. Uncharted 4 sadly wasn’t shown so if you are looking to see that you are going to be disappointed, but there was plenty else to see including exclusives, thi...

We can hardly argue about more shows giving us a look at the games to come and all the awesome things happening in the industry we love so much. Gamescom kicks off tomorrow in Cologne, Germany so be sure to keep checking the S...

This is why Sunset Overdrive is not coming to PS4

At a quick glance the rest of the year is not looking too great for exclusive titles. It’s perhaps also something to do with the fact that the Xbox One has not launched in South Africa yet. Once it does there will be quite a few exclusives on the console, though some of those are nearly a year old in other countries. There is however Sunset Overdrive, which is yet to launch. The once ‘...

Velocity 2X Is Out This September And It’s A Cross-Buy!

Plenty of games have pretty much flown under the radar lately, especially with all the Destiny hype, so I was excited to find out that Velocity 2X finally received a release date. Though no price was mentioned, Futurlab, the developers, announced that the game will be available for the PS4 and PS Vita on 2 September (US) and 3 September (EU). The game also supports cross-buy and cross-save, so you...
