Deep in the harsh wilds of a new realm and beleaguered with grief, Kratos will begin a new journey alongside his son Atreus. God of War has returned.

Developed by the passionate team at Santa Monica Studio, God of War follows Kratos and Atreus on a harrowing quest towards the highest mountain in the realm. With new weapons and new abilities to wield against the deadly denizens of the world, God of War embraces an intimate, skill-based combat system.

For a full list of new games coming to PlayStation next week, read on. And enjoy The Drop!

    PS5 better have Backwards Compatibility given that Xbox is going to have it, they’ve made a big announcement.
    PlayStation is the first to have Backwards Compatibility so since both the PS5 and PS4 both have AMD architecture, then they should be easily compatible.

ACA Sengoku 3 when??

    April 13th, 6:25 pm

    the ACA NeoGeo release on PS4 in the US is delayed compare to the XB1 and PS4 in Japan and Europe. The PS4 in the US come out weeks and months later. I do not know or understand why.

    Elk_mistral said:

    April 13th, 6:58 pm

    Well Europe having the same delay now. Since Hamster corps start Arcade Archives for Nintendo Switch with game from Nintendo… The PS4 ACA outside japan seem dead for a while…

Yakuza is the only one I’d be interested in if I wasn’t broke.

Super excited for God of War! Any idea if/when Dark Souls Remaster will be available for pre-order?

The power button on my PS4 no longer works and I can not enter Safe Mode any more, my PS4 is accumulating a lot of errors and I want to rebuild the database. Please Sony, I beg you, put a way to enter Safe Mode through an option in the PS4 menu. PLEEEASEEE!

Yakuza 6 and GOW for me.

I’d like to know if the italian digital edition of God of War will have the original language option.

Yakuza 6 and God of War are the only games that matter this week.


April 14th, 7:13 am

I don’t understand how Lacrosse and Cricket games get made, and we can’t get a Disc Golf game. There are so many possible sponsors and manufactures, and courses that could make one great game. Or here’s a idea, Everybody’s Golf could have a expansion.

Yep, just like a lot of you here – God of War and Yakuza 6 for me too! And Sword of Ditto next week. Awesome times for gaming.

So on Friday everyone is going to get a Platinum lol

I’ve never played a GoW game but from what I understand the frame rate is awful in “4K” and the game lacks VR support so this seems like a terrible entry to start with.

    God-Of-Lyf said:

    Your right, you shouldnt watse your time and money. (End Sarcasm) Having played them all myself i’d gladly buy 2-3 copies while only playing 1. I have the collectors addition pre ordered from day one because aside from the multiplayer aspect (which was still good) the series has NEVER let me down. Peole deciding not to buy a game based on 4k is just beyond silly to me. Look, I would love to have it in VR as well, but no way would I miss out on the game because of that…!

    Dr_Awesome81 said:

    April 15th, 1:18 pm

    Oh trust me I’m not going to waste my time and money. Fact is I probably have one of the older titles attached to my account from PS+ and would probably start there if I were really interested in the series. When it comes to the PS4 though no VR means no sale these days. I have a nice 4K TV but I do all my gaming on PSVR or Switch in handheld mode, it’s just a matter of preference. Is it too much to ask for games claiming to be 4K to actually be 4K and run at a steady 30FPS? Apparently when it comes to PS4 Pro it is.

    TJ_Solo said:

    April 15th, 5:10 pm

    The question is whether the framerate hurts the gameplay? The numerous reviews of the game say “no”. The framerate in one mode is a neg to some but hardly ruins the game.

I audibly gasped when I saw Phantom Trigger on here. People thought something went down. Can’t believe it is coming to PS4! YES!!!

cusman said:

Wow, a totally unexpected sequel to one of my favorite Shark movies is about to come out and the trailer looks decent.

I’ll be watching Deep Blue Sea 2 this week. Oh and I’ll also be playing the new God of War.

Deep Blue Sea 2 picture on text that says “Walking Dead Finale”??

I think it’s pretty obvious that this coming week will be dominated by sales of Yakuza 6 and God of War (2018).
I can’t wait for those 2. I’ve had them on preorder.

I am also waiting for Yakuza Kiwami 2, and I hope we get a Kiwami 3, Kiwami 4, and Kiwami 5 soon s well on the PS4 (on disc).

Also hope that they are considering to do a PS4 remaster collection consisting of:
– God of War
– God of War II
– God of War III
– God of War Ascension
– God of War Chains of Olympus
– God of War Ghost of Sparta
I’ve posted about this on the PlayStation YouTube videos. I wonder if anyone noticed yet?
With God of War (2018) coming in a few days, it would be nice for long time fans and new gamers to be able to experience/re-experience the original 6 games with updated graphic; even if it’s release through multiple game discs.
Maybe do it like ‘God of War Saga Collection’ on the PS3 and have God of War 1 & 2 on 1 disc, God of War 3 on 1 disc, God of War Ascenion on 1 disc, and then God of War Ghost of Sparta & Chains of Olympus on 1 disc.

    You realize God of War 3 remastered for PS4 has been available for quite a while, right?

It’s a shame that God of War’s launch will be overshadowed by yet another great addition in the Casey Powell Lacrosse Franchise!

Guys sony DOES NOT want you to know that if you go to you can get free games and ps+ subscription for at least a month. No surveys! Many people won’t try and miss out!

When are we going to get real VR games instead of these $29.99 demos? Far Point, Resident Evil 7 and Until Dawn Rush of blood are the only good story line and long game play games. It boggles my mind that the PSVR has been out a year and 7 months and only 3 real good games exist. Sad! Where are Time Cop Time Crisis Ninja Assault ETC? Full games!
