Microsoft Wants PlayStation to Become Like Nintendo, Sony Claims

One of Microsoft’s responses to Sony protesting its acquisition of Activision Blizzard is that Nintendo does just fine without Call of Duty. However, in a recent report listing observations on the UK Competition and Markets Authority’s statement about the sale, Sony was slighted at the insinuation that Microsoft thinks PlayStation should become like Nintendo. Sony claims Microsoft wants PlayStation to become like Nintendo so it can lock down the console shooter genre While Sony and Microsoft d

Warzone 2.0 on PS5 allows for up to a 120-degree Field of View. Console players have long been relegated to a fixed FOV. But, finally, after years of demand, studios are starting to make the setting available on non-PC platforms. The Warzone 2.0 FOV settings are a sign of the times. TVs are getting higher framerates, more features, and better latency.

Wild Hearts Preview: Hands-on With EA and Koei Tecmo's Monster Hunting Game

I recently got a chance to preview the first couple of hours of an alpha of Wild Hearts. EA and Koei Tecmo (Omega Force) confused me when they announced the title as a “hunting game,” as if there were a wide genre filled with competition. It’s not — Wild Hearts is a Monster Hunter clone. But that’s not an insult. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, and nowhere is that more true than in the video game industry. The important aspect to examine is how it interprets its inspiration — what

Dead Space Remake Expands Narrative and Includes Lore from Rest of Franchise

The Dead Space remake isn’t settling for being a simple graphical update.
