    Bald Bouncer
    Team Ninja’s Nioh received some new gameplay for the Defiant Honor DLC which is releasing on July 25th. As part of a recent stream with directors Fumihiko Yasuda and Yosuke Hayashi (start here for the actual gameplay), we got to see the new levels and tonfa weapon in action. Just be warned that there are spoilers, especially when it comes to the boss battle.


    However, perhaps the bigger announcement is the upcoming third DLC for the game. It’s called “Genna Enbu” or “Genna...

Anyway, we have received a brand new video for the game, which gives us 50 minutes of gameplay footage for it.

  • PlayStation Exec Assures PS4’s 2018 Games Line-Up Is Very Strong
    Bald Bouncer
    In the September issue of gaming magazine Edge, Jim Ryan from PlayStation, was asked about his thoughts about the PS4’s future exclusive line-up and why Sony’s first party game studios haven’t been able to deliver many exclusives every year. Given that Sony have so many exclusives such as Persona 5, Nier Automata and Horizon Zero Dawn released this year, I wonder why there are claims of lack of exclusives.


    Ryan addressed these claims by stating that the exclusives are there...

  • Sony Will Cut PS4 Price To $249 and PS4 Pro Price To $349 This Holiday Claim
    Bald Bouncer
    Although Sony has had a great 2017 so far, the PS4 has no major AAA exclusive games penned for release this Q4, except Gran Turismo Sport. In a way, Gran Turismo Sport has a huge responsibility of pushing the PS4 sales further for all the important Holiday season. Things become even more challenging if one puts Forza Motorsport 7 into the equation.


    So the PS4 may not be getting as many Holiday exclusives as the Nintendo Switch or even the Xbox One this Holiday- but against the...

    Bald Bouncer
    Marvel vs Capcom Infinite may have had all of its thunder stolen by the infinitely superior seeming Injustice 2 and the upcoming Dragon Ball Fighter Z, but there are undoubtedly long time fans of the series who are still waiting on the fourth entry in the series. Those fans should be pretty happy at the new footage for the game that was shared today.


    This footage shows off some new character moves and combos- and there’s 30 minutes of it, too, so you’ll be able to see a lot...

  • Analyst Skeptical Of 2018 PS5 Release Claims

    We’ve heard some rumors claim that a PS5 is coming next year- the claim was made by an analyst, the very same who also successfully predicted the PS4 Slim’s debut alongside the PS4 Pro last year, which is why his word has been given any credence. But… doesn’t it make very little sense for Sony to launch a PS5 next year, two years after the PS4 Pro, five years after the PS4, and when the PS4 is doing so well for itself, too?

    According to Michael Goodman, who is the director of digital media strategies at Strategy Analytics, it makes very little sense for that to happen. Which is why he is skeptical that it will. Speaking to We Write things, Goodman said, “My original thought was that you’re going on four year cycles, not two year cycles. I’m skeptical that they will launch a new console in 2018 after a two year time frame. I don’t think it is going to move to a two year cycle. [Sony] still has to pay back R&D. I mean there is a lot of expense that went into building the Pro. Are you going to undercut that market before it has made money?

    “Strategically, launching a new console in 2018 gives you, in all likelihood, the upper hand because you’ll really be able to either equal or usurp Microsoft. If Sony does [launch a new console in 2018], how much improvement are you going to get? Microsoft is already pushing the envelope pretty hard.

    “Let’s just play devil’s advocate and say Sony does push it to 2018. Are they going to be able to leapfrog Scorpio and by how much? Is it going to be enough to make a difference? Scorpio being 40 percent more powerful than Pro is a significant jump. Fast forward a year from now, are you really going to be able to get a 25 percent increase? Are you going to be able to get a 40 percent increase over Scorpio? Probably not.

    “So now begs the question, are you going to basically short Pro in order to gain an equal or small advantage over Scorpio? Oh and by the way, Scorpio will then start to get the price advantage on your anyway…It’s almost like for Sony, you’re damned if you do and you’re damned if you don’t. If you keep riding things, Microsoft has got an advantage on you that they’re going to be pretty merciless about. At least in the next year, there’s not much Sony can do about it.”

    I can’t say I disagree with the line of thinking much- if a PS5 is to come, I don’t see it coming next year. That would be a very foolish move on Sony’s part.
