PlayStation Now, Sony’s subscription service for streaming older games, is going to start letting you download games as well, putting it more in line with Xbox Game Pass and Nintendo’s recently launched Switch Online NES library.
Spider-Man is chock full of collectibles. You’re meant to grab tokens from fighting crime and clearing out bases to upgrade and build new suits for Peter Parker. My favorite collectible, though, is the mementos you find in Peter Parker’s backpacks around the city. These backpacks aren’t hard to find; they’re not…
The recently announced PlayStation Classic is small. But how does it look side by side with the original? Like this!
Once an entertaining hypothetical, Sony’s answer to the NES Classic is now an actual retro gaming console due out before the end of the year. Here’s a perfectly reasonable list of games and features that could help make the PlayStation Classic a more enjoyable and authentic experience.
If Nintendo can do it, Sony can too: the company just announced the PlayStation Classic, a small retro console that comes bundled with a range of the original console’s best/most popular games (including Final Fantasy VII).
The new Tomb Raider’s freshest idea is the floating of a question: What if all this tomb raiding that Lara Croft does indicates that she is a treasure-plundering jerk who wrecks other people’s cultures and, worse, their lives?
Sony released a new firmware update for the PlayStation 4 today—a nice round number, 6.0. Such point-zero updates often mean big new changes for a platform, which is what fans were hoping for. This wishlist possibly even included name changes, because PSN users are nothing if not imaginative dreamers. Unfortunately,…
Sony’s Japan Studio is working on a new platforming VR game with a cute robot hero that wouldn’t look out of place in WALL-E. Titled Astro Bot Rescue Mission, it will be out next month in Japan and the US.
Today in Tokyo, Sony is holding it’s “Line Up Tour” right before the Tokyo Game Show gets underway next week.

Sony Interactive Entertainment’s aftercare service for the PlayStation 2 in Japan is ending. While the console has been out of production since 2012, Sony Japan continued to service to the game machine, keeping it alive. Sony is now pulling the plug.
Falcon Age, coming to PS4 (and PS VR) next year, is all about falcon-hunting. And yes, you can pet the bird.
These PlayStation sneakers aren’t official—I doubt either Nike or Sony would go with something so obvious—but the results are still pretty cool.
Last night, I started playing through Max Payne on Kotaku’s Twitch channel. Returning to the 2001 game after so many years reveals a smart and surprisingly funny game full of experimentation. And, of course, kickass bullet-time gunfights.
Live From PlayStation is an an app on PS4 where people can go to see live streams, archived videos, and screenshots being shared by other players, some of which include porn, because in 2018 it’s apparently still possible to get explicit pics trending on PS4.
Video games often deal in illusions, proffering the fantasy of control and power even when your meaningful influence is minimal. Monster Hunter: World, the new third-person action game from Capcom, absolutely deals in fantasy. It plucks you from reality and sets you in the domains of exotically imposing monsters that…
To commemorate 500 million PlayStation consoles sold over the last couple of decades, Sony will be bringing back that 90s styling and releasing this blue, transluscent PS4 Pro.
God of War’s long-awaited New Game Plus will arrive on August 20, Sony said today. The mode comes in a free update and will offer new gear, tougher enemies with “new tricks up their sleeves,” and an option to skip cinematics. No word on whether you’ll be able to change the size of Kratos’s beard.
Little Adventure on the Prairie released last February on both PS4 and Vita. It’s not good. The game consists of walking from left to right, pressing the X button to swing a sword at everything you run into, and occasionally hopping over invisible snags in the level geometry. Its creator didn’t need it to be good,…
