      Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty review: excellent expansion enhances an overhauled game / TheGuardian · 11:57

    CD Projekt RED; PC, PS5, Xbox
    The stylish RPG has undergone a radical transformation, and the expansion starring Idris Elba makes the best of the game’s new features

    Like a Night City gangster after a botched cyberware installation, Cyberpunk 2077 emerged from development as a half-finished pariah. When it was released in the dismal winter of 2020, the game’s stunning virtual metropolis and cinematic storytelling were spoiled by its fundamental inability to satisfy as an RPG. Its open world lacked dynamism and didn’t reward exploration. Its progression systems were tedious and uninspired. It had more bugs than a dead Netrunner. The PlayStation 4 version barely worked at all.

    Given that Polish developer CD Projekt RED built one of the best games in existence with The Witcher 3 , Cyberpunk was a comparative disappointment and the studio took a reputational pounding. Yet CD Projekt was known for improving its games post-release and in this regard, we were assured, Cyberpunk would be no different.

      Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 preview: hands-on with the web-slinging duo / TheGuardian · 7 days ago - 15:00

    PlayStation 5
    The storytelling is superb but Peter Parker and Miles Morales’s vastly expanded New York playground steals the show as you soar from one jaw-dropping encounter to the next in this fully fledged sequel

    Few games did more to sell PlayStation 4s, than the original Marvel’s Spider-Man . Swinging its way into Sony’s E3 2017 press conference and then dominating the charts on its release the following year, this surprisingly slick licensed offering was an unashamedly cinematic adventure, the cutscene-heavy formula setting the tone for the bombastic single-player blockbusters that defined the PS4 era. Now, six years later, all eyes are on the webslinger to repeat the trick for PlayStation 5.

    At a recent demo event in London, I pick up the controller and send our quip-happy hero hurtling fearlessly across a shiny Manhattan – and initially it seems as if very little has changed. There is Peter Parker, now rocking a black symbiote suit being pursued across Manhattan by the hired goons of big-game hunter Kraven, and my brain happily switches to acrobatic autopilot, pummelling henchmen and swooping between skyscrapers as if it were 2018 again.

      Sony wants up to $40 more per year for PlayStation Plus subscriptions / ArsTechnica · Wednesday, 30 August - 20:29 · 1 minute

    In a blog post announcing its latest monthly PlayStation Plus games, like sandbox playground Saints Row and 1980s mecha co-op shooter Generation Zero, a Sony director "also wanted to let you know that starting September 6, we will be increasing the price for PlayStation Plus 12-month subscriptions," across all levels. The move comes just two months after Microsoft similarly raised prices on its Game Pass subscriptions .

    The new prices take effect September 6 and, Sony's Adam Michel, director of content acquisition and operations, says the increase will "enable us to continue bringing high-quality games and value-added benefits" to Plus subscribers. If you have a current multi-month subscription, the new prices won't take effect until your next renewal data that occurs after November 6. Making any changes to your plan after September 6, however, will incur the new pricing. That gives subscribers about a week's time to stick another year or more onto their membership at current pricing.

    PlayStation Plus' new prices are $80 per year for Essential (formerly $60), $135 for Extra (from $100), and $160 for Premium (from $120). All of these prices are notably below Microsoft's Game Pass prices , though Microsoft makes its first-party games, like the upcoming Starfield , available on day one through that service, and only Sony's Premium plan offers the kind of large library of games that compares to Game Pass. PlayStation Plus is not an easy subscription to understand —so much so that we were compelled to make our own explainer —but the company has been clear that it's not planning to put its own games on its own service at launch.
