    Marvel's 'Spider-Man' for PlayStation 4 swings to a record-breaking opening

    Spider-Man mania is back. The popular comic-book superhero's recent resurgence has expanded beyond cinemas and into the world of video games, with the wallcrawler's latest self-titled game selling a record 3.3 million copies in the first three days of its release earlier this month. While Sony did not provide an official number, with a retail price of $59.99 for the game the 3.3 million copies translates to roughly $198 million, crushing the $117 million opening weekend box office of the latest solo Spider-Man film, "Spider-Man: Homecoming."

    PlayStation Classic Will Not See Post-Launch Games, Has No PSN Functionality

    With the PlayStation Classic's reveal earlier this week came the confirmation of five of the 20 games to be included in the nostalgic console, as well as what players would be getting for the $99.99 price point. Still, some questions lingered about functionality for the system, and how it might differ from what we've seen in Nintendo's NES and SNES Classic mini consoles. Speaking to IGN via email, a PlayStation spokesperson confirmed that, similarly to those consoles, the initial launch lineup will be the full catalogue for the PlayStation Classic.

    Why Mario Works: Super Mario as Transformative Icon for the Working Class

    Nintendo’s Mario has transcended the realm of character and sits firmly in the realm of icon. Despite his appearance as a simple working man, nevertheless, just as Mario takes different forms throughout his adventure series, he is also a pliable figure of transformation throughout culture in general. Mario is a transformative and easily adaptable figure in the lineage of silent film stars, but Mario echoes them even further as a specifically...

    Not every game needs to sell 500k

    Since Devolver Digital began in 2009, the publisher hasn't been shy about taking risks on indies. By extension, neither has co-founder Nigel Lowrie. Though Devolver started out essentially as the new publisher for Serious Sam after 2K began to focus on other titles, it didn't stay that way for long. After publishing successful HD versions of Croteam's over-the-top shooter series, it tested the waters of indie publishing further by pairing the successful Serious Sam IP with other developers, such as Vlambeer. That connection with Vlambeer was what led Devolver to Dennaton Games and Hotline Miami.

    Video games are an underrated art form

    For those who believe in the distinction between high art and low, video games have long been near the bottom of the pile. Fortunately, that has not stopped some of the world’s great art museums from putting on exhibitions. The Museum of Modern Art, in New York, began acquiring games in 2012 and a year later invited visitors to play some of them in a show called “Applied Design”. The most recent video-games exhibition, “Videogames Design/Play/Disrupt”, takes place at an even grander instituion – the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.

    Alan Wake is being adapted for TV

    Alan Wake, a game that was structured like and inspired by TV shows, is set to become a TV show itself. If nothing else, it at least fits the format better than most games. It’s even got product placement! Peter Calloway has already signed on to be the showrunner and writer, which might be quite good news. Calloway was the executive producer for the exceptional (and exceptionally weird) Legion TV series, as well as writing a couple of episodes. His other credits include the terminally boring Under the Dome and the soapy superhero drama Cloak & Dagger.

    One game folks just can’t stop talking about these days is CD Projekt Red’s upcoming RPG Cyberpunk 2077.

    Sony says you can't have cross-play because PlayStation is the best

    Sony doesn't want you to play with your Xbox or Switch friends, I argued last June. We've known since 2016 that Sony is the only company standing in the way of buddies being able to team up across PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC, since there's no technological limitation. And though Sony has since been shown up by Microsoft and Nintendo, and though Sony enraged the Fortnite community, and though Fallout developer Bethesda has badmouthed Sony about cross-play and threatened to hold another game hostage, and even though PlayStation America CEO Shawn Layden suggested...

    This Land is My Land takes a different view of the Wild West than Red Dead Redemption

    With Red Dead Redemption 2 coming later this year, interest in Wild West games is at a heightened level. So it’s interesting to take a look at a game in development that seems broadly similar to RDR 2, but is taking a very different approach to the subject. This Land is My Land — due out in the first half of next year — is an open-world game set in late 19th century frontier, but it’s played from the point of view of a Native American.

On PlayStation 4, the only platform Blackout is currently live on, Blackout runs at an impressive framerate.

    Microsoft is the right company to build the “Netflix of gaming”

    A few months ago, executives from two of the world’s largest video game publishers suggested that traditional game consoles are on their way out. In separate interviews with Variety, Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot and Electronic Arts CTO Ken Moss both argued that instead of buying expensive hardware to play video games, we’ll stream them onto virtually any device, tapping into remote servers for the requisite computing power. And instead of downloading games or buying them on disc, we’ll subscribe to a vast catalog of titles, all of them instantly accessible. In other words, the future of gaming will look a lot like Netflix.

This year THQ Nordic returned with an all-new demo to showcase the progress they had made and give players a closer look at some of the new features we hadn’t yet seen, and it only looks to be improving in leaps and bounds.

    Wolfenstein 3 is 'absolutely' being made

    The Wolfenstein series numbering scheme is a little messy. Castle Wolfenstein was the first, but the FPS series as we know it started 25 years ago with Wolfenstein 3D. Sequels and reboots led to Wolfenstein—just Wolfenstein—in 2009, after which Bethesda took over and gave us Wolfenstein: The New Order and then Wolfenstein: The Old Blood, neither of which were Wolfenstein 2, which didn't come along until last year. This year, Bethesda revealed Wolfenstein: Youngblood at E3, which in keeping with that complicated tradition is not Wolfenstein 3 but rather a standalone spin-off.
