Lord of the Rings Gollum “sneak peek” trailer deepens the dark mystery

Lord of the Rings Gollum “sneak peek” trailer deepens the dark mystery

When I first heard that there was going to be a "The Lord of the Rings" game centered on Gollum, I was skeptical. I assumed it'd be limiting, putting the gamer in the body of the least-capable character in the series. Imagine my surprise when I realized that this wouldn't be a journey riding along with Frodo and Sam, but taking part in the journey we didn't see on the big screen. This Gollum game takes place after The One Ring came to Bilbo, but before Gollum found his way back to our halfling friends in the events of The Fellowship of the Ring.

PS3, PS Vita, PSP tipped severe usability limits imminent

When you purchase an older PlayStation, you do so with the understanding that it won't always have the same software support as it has now. You'll still be able to play the games you have on disk and the games you've downloaded, but new digital games are not forever. A rumor this week suggests that Sony PlayStation 3 will join the ranks of 1 and 2 with "no digital games store available."

Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade trailer compares PS4, PS5 visuals

After almost decades of waiting, fans of Final Fantasy were finally given the 3D remake they've been clamoring for. That said, it is being delivered piecemeal and the next serving is still nowhere in sight. In the meantime, Square Enix and Sony are milking the title while it's still fresh and giving it a special spin exclusive to the PlayStation 5. Almost a month after its initial announcement, Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade is getting another trailer, one that pits the PS5 version against the PS4.

Sony patent wants anything to be a game controller

Sometimes the first glimpse we get at what future products might look like comes in the form of art from patent drawings. The art seen in patents certainly doesn't always indicate what the final product will look like, but sometimes it does.

How PlayStation 4 and 5 get free Ratchet & Clank game starting today

Starting this week, PlayStation Play At Home begins on March 1, 2021, and with it, free game drops aplenty. As noted by Sony Interactive Entertainment CEO Jim Ryan in late February, the Play At Home initiative will carry the good times forward into the future thanks in part to the bad times delivered by the COVID-19 pandemic. Here in March 2021, this means we're getting Ratchet & Clank, the game released as a re-imagining of the original Ratchet & Clank.

ALIENS: Fireteam takes place after Alien 3, before Resurrection… but how?

Before you view this trailer, keep an open mind and check the "alpha" tag below. This game is still relatively early in development, and will almost certainly look better by the time it's ready for release. That said, it's odd that it's set for "Summer 2021" but the gameplay trailer release today is still "alpha" in nature. Have you ever experienced such a combination of elements before?
