Cast your gaming addled minds back to August 2014 and you might remember (but probably won’t because “addled”) that a chap called Douglas Ladore filed a class-action lawsuit against Sony for allegedly incorrectly advertising Killzone: Shadow Fall. The lawsuit claimed that Sony advertised the game as running in 1080p when in actual fact that resolution only pertained to the single-player portion of the game. The multiplayer side of Shadow Fall actually ran in 960×1080, but used a neat rendering technique called “temporal reprojection” in order to create images indistinguishable from 1080p. Incidentally it took people FOUR MONTHS to figure this out, so clearly Ladore was full of shit.
Luckily Judge Edward Chen of California decided to throw out the case “with prejudice”. That basically means that there is no way for this case to be reopened and no chance of an appeal. Also, everyone is responsible for their own legal fees. It’s kind of like a judge’s way of saying, “You know what? This is bollocks, your claim is bollocks, that tie is bollocks, and I’m done wasting my time listening to your bollocks. Get out.”
Well now in all honesty, I’m wondering why this didn’t happen sooner. A French retailer called CeDe has listedUncharted: The Remastered Trilogy for the PlayStation 4. There’s even a tentative release date of 30 September this year.
This could be a massive hoax. This could be totally legit. There’s no way of telling at the moment. That being said, the timing is pretty good: Uncharted 4 just got delayed to 2016, which gives Sony and Naughty Dog more time to bring new PlayStation owners up to speed via a remastered trilogy of the PlayStation 3 games. The more new fans they generate now, the better Uncharted 4 is going to do.
A remastered and bundled Uncharted collection makes sense, and as we’ve seen in the past with The Last of Us, remastered games for the PlayStation 4 definitely have their place. For now, however, file this under “R” for “Really, Really, Big Rumour.”
If you bought your Playstation Vita before 1 June 2012, you may be eligible for a reward from a class action lawsuit filed against Sony Computer Entertainment America by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) in 2014. The lawsuit accused Sony of false advertising, deceptive advertising, and not selling customers the product and services they thought they would be getting, specifically for the much-rumored Remote Play feature.
Bloodborne is hard! Like, really hard. What did you expect from From Software? Turns out there’s a weird bug of sorts that makes the game easier if you leave the game running for a while.
The oddity was first discovered and shared by Reddit user “meatballz”, who chalked it up to a memory leak issue within the game. Basically, young meatballz decided to marathon the game in one sitting. About 12 hours into his playthrough he noticed boss encounters getting easier and easier. Apparently the bosses’ move sets get smaller the longer the game runs. In some instances the boss fights pretty much bug out, leaving certain of them totally vulnerable to attack.
