I only own an Xbox at the moment but like to keep an eye on what's going on with Sony. This game has me excited and seems that I should aim to buy a PS4 before 2016!

If you're going to get a playstation just to play No Man's Sky why not get the PC version when it's released (unless you don't have a PC either)?? That's my plan. I've heard in the past it was supposed to be a timed exclusive for PS4, but now I've seen it stated the release date will be the same.

Same here, PC version for me. But to be frank, it's still not clear to me whether or not this game will end up being boring after a few hours.

Pretty much it :p Both my personal and work laptop aren't exactly top spec. I've been contemplating for a while now and the release of this game convinces me.

Guess that answers that! :) Though I honestly hope the system requirements aren't too high, as my PC isn't exactly a monster machine either...

An excellent point. The concept and execution of the game sound really cool, but it'll be very interesting to find out what playing it actually ends up being like.

I have no doubt that some people will find this game boring.  There isn't a strong narrative in the game so if you need a compelling story to have fun in a game it's probably not for you.  On the other hand if you enjoy running around in Minecraft or playing around in the GTA/Fallout/Elder Scrolls world besides running the story missions then there's a good chance you'll like this game.  I know I personally love open world games and I'm really looking forward to this one but I also know that many people don't like to be just given a world/galaxy to play with and told to do their own thing.  Not every game is going to please everyone.

Explore, fight, trade.  There isn't a specific way to play the game.  Some crazy people might just spend their entire time playing it exploring their starting planet (unlikely, but possible).  In theory you're supposed to work your way to the center of the galaxy but that goal is along the same lines as in theory you're supposed to try to get to the end and defeat the dragon in Minecraft... many will play the game and never even try to get to the center of the galaxy.

Exploration is the main focus as you'll be discovering planets, flora, and fauna that no other person has ever seen before (not even the developers).  In order to explore farther you have to earn credits to upgrade your ship and gear though.  Your ship has a limited jump range at the start, your suit limits what environments you can survive on outside the ship, your weapon limits your mining, combat ability.  You can earn credits by harvesting resources, trading, fighting, logging new creatures, places. etc.  Again there is no specific way to play.  You can play as a pacifist explorer, you could be a pirate, you could be a merchant, etc. etc.

The dev, being an indie, wanted to focus on getting it out for the PS4 and PC for now. Microsoft has stated that if the dev gets it running for Xbox One they would love to have it on their platform too (not just on their Windows platform). Now there is question (rumor) that it will make it on the PS4.

“As we approached our final deadlines, we realized that some key moments needed extra polish to bring them up to our standards,” director Sean Murray wrote on the PlayStation Blog this evening. “I have had to make the tough choice to delay the game for a few weeks to allow us to deliver something special.”

Seeing some of the reactions to the rumour earlier, I think I'll keep my distance from this game until it comes out...

Seriously, death threats for reporting a game being delayed? Those twisted ######ers need to be sorted out.

      Final Fantasy XVI teaser website launched, main characters and setting detailed
      by Namerah Saud Fatmi

      Japanese video game maker Square Enix announced the latest instalment in its decades-old series Final Fantasy at the PlayStation 5 event a little over a month ago. At the time, a teaser trailer for the game was also showcased. However, not much information about the ARPG was disclosed apart from snippets of gameplay and tidbits of the plot here and there.

      Today saw the launch of the official teaser website for Final Fantasy XVI along with further information about the game's key characters, artwork and setting. Square Enix chose to make the announcement through the PlayStation blog. The upcoming title in the Final Fantasy franchise will have a completely new world and set of characters.

      Image via PlayStation Blog The game is set in a land called Valisthea and comprises of six factions, The Grand Duchy of Rosaria, The Holy Empire of Sanbreque, The Kingdom of Waloed, The Dhalmekian Republic, The Iron Kingdom and The Crystalline Dominion. A lot of the lore has been detailed in-depth on the game's teaser website. A small description of the world reads:

      Final Fantasy XVI will focus on the lead protagonist Clive Rosfield and his younger brother Joshua Rosfield, the first and second sons of a prominent family in the game's universe. Clive is a "Shield" who has sworn fealty to protect his younger brother Joshua who is the "Dominant of the Phoenix". This means the younger Rosfield has the ability to transform into a powerful creature called the Pheonix and can wield the powers of an Eikon. As a protector of his brother, Clive has the capability to use some of his brother's Eikon powers as well.

      The third main character in the upcoming PS5 title is Jill Warrick, a young girl who was brought up as a member of the Rosfield family and raised alongside the two brothers. The 12-year old character was adopted as a ward of the affluent family as part of a peace deal between her homeland, the Northern Territories, and Rosaria. She is described to be an innocent, kind and trustworthy confidant to the duo.

      Apart from the three main characters of the next-gen Final Fantasy title, the announcement on the PlayStation blog also named a couple of other Eikons that have already been showcased in the reveal trailer. The names of these Eikons are Titan, Shiva, and Ifrit.

      Final Fantasy XVI is scheduled to arrive on the PlayStation 5 as a timed exclusive. It will launch for the PC platform after an unspecified amount of time has passed. According to the game's producer Naoki Yoshida, the next big announcement about the game will be made in 2021, hinting that the Final Fantasy title will launch sometime next year.

      Sony refreshes the PlayStation app with native store integration, voice chat, and more
      by Jefferson Mangubat

      Sony is rolling out a refreshed PlayStation app today that should improve your gaming experience on the PlayStation 4 and 5. The updated app adds a bunch of new features including a new interface, a native messaging tool, built-in PS Store integration, and more.

      The app's fresh interface will let you view the games your friends are playing via the home screen. You can also see the titles you've recently played along with your Trophy List. In addition, there's an integrated messaging system that lets you communicate with friends from within the app, no need for a separate messaging app like before. That also means PS Messages will be shuttered after this change. That said, the new PS app will contain your older messages.

      In addition, you can shop and browse using the new native PS Store experience as well as remotely download games and add-ons directly to your console. The app includes new capabilities that are PlayStation 5-specific. When the new-generation console rolls out, you will be able to launch games and manage its storage, all via remote access. You can also sign in to the console directly from the app.

      Another feature introduced by the new app is voice chat that lets you chat with up to 15 people. There's also the ability to create party groups and see news updates via the Explore tab.

      The refreshed app will be released today worldwide. It will be available to download on iOS 12.2 or later and Android 6.0 or later.

      No Man's Sky next-gen upgrade brings major improvements to visuals and more
      by Pulasthi Ariyasinghe

      Hello Games today announced its next-generation upgrade plans for No Man's Sky as the Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5 launches inch closer. The free enhancements aren't just on consoles though, as PC version players will also see the graphics upgrades arrive for their systems, though they are recommended for higher-end hardware owners.

      On the graphics side, Hello Games is turning up alien environment details to 11, with higher resolution planet terrain textures, greater draw distances, improved shadows, better detailed geometry, as well as denser grass, flowers, fungi, and rocks. The Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 consoles will be able to play the space title at 4K 60FPS, however, Xbox Series S players will have a choice between "high quality native resolution at 30fps or high performance at 60fps modes."

      According to the developer, warping speeds on the next-gen consoles are up to 10 times faster than on current-gen offerings. 32-player multiplayer support is finally coming to consoles with this upgrade too. Moreover, the base building aspect is being improved to offer larger and more complex structures. The current cross-play capabilities will also be extended to the upcoming Xbox and PlayStation systems.

      Meanwhile, the PlayStation 5 version is receiving some extra goodies utilizing its new technologies such as haptic feedback on the Dual Sense controller, 3D audio, and virtual reality support through PSVR backward compatibility.

      The aptly named No Man's Sky: Next Generation update will be landing in a few weeks to launch alongside the new consoles. The full patch notes for the update can be seen here.

      Sony seeing significant demand for its next-gen console
      by Paul Hill

      Sony has seen significant demand for its PlayStation 5 according to Jim Ryan, the President and CEO of Sony Interactive Entertainment. Retailers have opened pre-orders for the next-gen console and people have rushed to place an order for the device which is set to launch on November 12.

      Speaking to Reuters, Jim Ryan said that demand for the new console during the pre-order period had “been very, very considerable.” In the United States, PS5 consoles sold as well in the first 12 hours as the PlayStation 4 did in the first 12 weeks. One of the reasons for the huge increase in demand could be the fact that people are being forced to stay home more as countries grapple with the coronavirus and are looking for something to fill their time.

      The CEO admitted that not everybody who wants a PS5 will be able to get one on launch day but that the firm is working hard to ensure that people can acquire one around the end of the year.

      While the pandemic might be boosting interest in the PS5, job losses around the world may make it difficult for people to justify the PlayStation 5’s $500 price tag or the $400 for the digital edition. As the economic dust settles during 2021 people’s cash flows could have an impact on console sales in the medium-term.
