There’s a bit of a drawback to having a 4K console like the Playstation 4 Pro or Xbox One X; you have to have a 4K TV in order to get the full experience. However, there is a way for you to optimize your Playstation 4 Pro games without a 4K TV. 4K TVs are, of course, the best way to get the full experience out of a premium console. However, considering that a 4K TV is around as expensive as a video game console already, and gamers might have a perfectly serviceable TV already, it’s likely that gamers won’t spring for one unless they’re either already in the market for a new TV, or really want to experience the best possible graphics. However, there’s another, cheaper solution to optimize your Playstation 4 Pro games even without a 4K TV. The upcoming 5.50 update that’s coming to the Playstation 4 and Playstation 4 Pro introduces multi-sampling, which will allow players to display their games at a higher resolution. This can take games that have … [Read more...] about Here’s How You Can Optimize Your Playstation 4 Pro Games Without A 4K TV

Homebrew PlayStation 4 development on older consoles is finally happening, which has in turn led to the arrival of pirated software and a way to run more of the PS2 game library on Sony's modern console. The floodgates opened earlier in the month with an exploit that allowed for low-level system access on the console, albeit restricted to consoles operating with system software 4.05. This automatically limits - severely - the amount of consoles on the open market that can run the exploit, and the vulnerability in the console was patched with firmware 4.06, which arrived way back in November 2016. However, since the exploit was released, there's been a lot of activity and support from hackers, including the arrival of Linux support, full root access to the system via FTP and the arrival last week of PS4HEN - a homebrew enabler. We've now reached the point where package files can be installed on the PS4, and tools are available to decrypt games, which can then be re-packaged and … [Read more...] about PlayStation 4 hacked: pirate software available, more PS2 titles running
A remastered edition of the original Dark Souls has just been announced on Nintendo Direct for all platforms including Nintendo Switch, an announcement that we were crossing fingers for quite some time. Apart from that huge news though, From Software announced the existence of a Dark Souls Trilogy Box Set, which will launch exclusively for PlayStation 4. What does it include though? As expected, the Dark Souls Trilogy Box Set includes all three “sadistic” games, this includes the new Dark Souls Remastered, Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin and Dark Souls III: The Fire Fades Edition, which is the all-in-one version of the game with all the downloadable content. The three games will be housed in a huge Disc case which will also include 6 soundtrack CD with background music from the games, two for each. The best feature of the Dark Souls Trilogy Box Set is the two iron looking bookends which showcase a knight and a bonfire at its two sides. … [Read more...] about Playstation 4 Is Getting An Exclusive Dark Souls Trilogy Box Set, See What It Includes
THQ Nordic has announced that beloved colour-splashing platform sequel de Blob 2 is coming to Xbox One and PlayStation 4 on February 27th. Console owners will receive the same remastered version that released on PC in June last year, which added higher resolutions and graphics options to the original game, alongside upscaled videos and FXAA Anti Aliasing. THQ Nordic has yet to announce if the full list of PC upgrades will make it over to consoles, however. de Blob 2 first released in 2011, and was the multi-platform follow-up to the enjoyable Wii original. It marked the return of the villainous Comrade Black, who was once again set on ridding Prisma City of all its colour. The sequel followed a similar exploratory, colour-restoring formula to its predecessor, albeit with a greater emphasis on platforming this time around. It evens added a number of 2D side-scrolling segments to the first game's strictly 3D design. Additionally, de Blob 2 introduced new moves and transformative … [Read more...] about de Blob 2 is heading to Xbox One and PlayStation 4 in February
