psHot off the Gamescom conference floor, Sony has announced that their upcoming Playstation 4 console is slated for Australian and New Zealand release on November 29th of this year. The highly anticipated next-gen gaming console from the Japanese giants will release simultaneously alongside other European countries.

But the news doesn’t end there! Sony took the time to reveal that their portable counterpart; the PS Vita, will be receiving a price cut in several locations around the world including North America and Europe. It is unclear at this point if Australia is included in the price slashing, but more on it as it comes.

Polyphony Digital’s upcoming project Gran Turismo 6 will see a worldwide release on December 6 available exclusively for the Playstation 3.

In partnership with Sony, Twitch had recently announced on their official blog that Twitch streaming services will be available on the Playstation 4 system. The article stresses the user friendliness of the console’s Twitch functionality, making streaming on your selected Twitch account as easy as pressing the Share button on the PS4′s Dual Shock 4 controller. Not only that, but a Twitch-branded viewing app will also be available to download, opening up a brand new audience of gamers to create or be part of streaming experiences even while on the console.

Over the space of this year and the last, gaming has taken quite the zany trip to bizarro land. We’re still not out of the woods regarding COVID-induced delays, units of next gen consoles are currently outselling the games available on said platforms and to garnish, remasters of games thought to never see the light of day again are slated for release. Among them is a reworking of Square Enix’s cult classic from 2010: NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139. While the decision to re-release the original game makes logical sense due to NieR Automata‘s overwhelming critical and financ...

2020 was not a great year, but you’re probably well aware of that. It was a year that many of us struggled to get through, and saw the world adapting to a new normal in record breaking time. For us here at New Game Plus, we were unable to film out of our studio space at RMIT due to the pandemic. However, thanks to the ingenuity of our team, we were able to quickly and easily adapt the show to work recording from our homes. Up until we’d filmed our Game of the Year episode, we hadn’t filmed a television show in the same space together in over 9 months.  Even amongst the un...

The end of a console generation usually means annualised sports games get put into a holding pattern: The graphics are touched up, the physics get tweaked, the stats get adjusted, nothing more. It’s rare for a new mode to be introduced or for major quality of life improvements to be made. Even so, F1 2020 goes above and beyond in these regards. The marquee feature added to F1 2020 is the My Team mode. Instead of transplanting yourself into one of the existing teams, as was the case with previous games, My Team has you create an 11th team to compete with the rest of the field and serve as it...

With 2020 continuing to be a year of surprises, Microsoft have finally come out and detailed a crucial bit of Xbox Series X launch information: the console will be launching sometime in November 2020.

In a statement on the Xbox News blog, Microsoft weren’t ready to give an exact date for the launch of their fourth console, or even a price, but were happy to tout that even without Halo Infinite launching this year, there’s still plenty of reasons to invest in a...
