It's been over a year since the PlayStation 5 was first released. And although it may still be hard to obtain a console thanks to global supply issues, Sony have stepped up to serve current (and future!) PS5 users with new controller colour options. And they're available to buy today! Besides the standard white DualSense and relatively new Midnight Black and Cosmic Red colour ways, Sony have decided to unleash three new colours: Starlight Blue, Nova Pink and Galactic Purple.

The purple one is available first via the PS Store until 10th February - after that it will be available at other retailers and we'll update this page to share the cheapest place to buy it. The blue and pink versions are available to buy today and the cheapest place we've found them is at Zatu Games for £55.79 - it's worth noting there is a £2.99 delivery fee but this still saves you … [Read more...] about The new PS5 DualSense controllers are out now!
If 500 hours of Dying Light 2 somehow doesn't sound like enough for you to sink your teeth into, rest assured there's more where that came from. Techland Games, the studio behind the Dying Light series, is now stating they are "committed" to five years of game support for Dying Light 2: Stay Human following its release on February 4.

This year's Call of Duty could be coming as early as October, as claimed by journalist Tom Henderson, who has built a reputable history of leaking information surrounding Call of Duty and other major franchises. In a tweet on January 13 , Henderson reports of hearing "rumblings" that this fall's Call of Duty game, which is presumed to be a follow-up to Modern Warfare 2019 , could be pushed ahead one month early for an October release. The leaker claims this change would be due to Call of Duty: Vanguard's poor sales. While Vanguard did top the PlayStation Store sales charts in North America and Europe for its November launch, the overall sales were in a bit of a decline over last year's numbers for Black Ops Cold War. Henderson also added that the early launch of Call of Duty 2022 would bring a "big" update to Call of Duty: Warzone shortly after. However, this Warzone report seems to follow suit with past titles, as Raven Software integrated both 2020's Black Ops Cold War … [Read more...] about Call Of Duty 2022 Rumored To Arrive Early Due To Poor Vanguard Sales
