Lots of people thought that Diablo 3 wouldn't have been possible on consoles and it proved the best version of the title. Now it's time to see if the same holds true of last year's breakout role-playing game Divinity: Original Sin in the form of an Enhanced Edition. The decidedly old-school RPG's ...

Well, this is kind of surprising: the Xbox One lead console sales last month. I say it's surprising because there wasn't an exclusive game that launched for the system, nor was there a new bundle deal going at the time, either. Regardless, it's good news and something that Redmond hasn't seen in a...

Case in point: the firm's announced that it's bringing subscriptions for the PlayStation Now game-streaming service...

Some say surrealism was the most influential art movement of the past century and, perhaps unsurprisingly, it's had an effect on video game developers too. The games you'll find below weren't made by Salvador Dalí or M.C. Escher, but the influence those mind-bending artists had is unmistakab...

The '90s are back in style, in more ways than one. Kill Screen has revealed that Marilyn Manson released his latest album (The Pale Emperor) on the black CDs used for original PlayStation games, made in the same Sony plant.

It's a PlayStation Vita that you can connect to your TV, but that doesn't mean you should automatically go out and buy one.

Mortal Kombat is synonymous with violence -- hell, it's baked into the franchise's name. But despite how increasingly gruesome the series has become with each successive release throughout its 23-year history, it hasn't lost sight of keeping the tone light as a counterbalance. Whether that's a hea...

PlayStation Home, Sony's answer to the Second Life question no one asked, was never where the company's heart lived.
