Hideo Kojima reforms Kojima Productions, first title to be PS4 exclusive

After months of seemingly forced silence from Konami, Hideo Kojima has finally reemerged to announce that Kojima Productions has been reformed. The news was confirmed with the opening of a brand new website for the studio, which announces everything in a very Kojima-like manner. In addition to the studio creation, it was also revealed that the team's first game will be backrolled by Sony, and will be a PS4 exclusive as a result. We've got the announcement video, which features a slightly excited Andrew House, for you to watch after the jump.

Say goodbye to infinite caps glitch with Fallout 4 patch 1.02

Quick! Don't let Fallout 4 near an internet connection! The new 1.02 patch has reportedly nixed the infinite caps glitch on PS4, Xbox One and PC. Looks like you're going to have to put in an honest day's work for your funds now.

On the plus side, the new patch does fix a few of the more bothersome glitches. Here are the official patch notes from Bethesda:

Final Fantasy VII Remake will be episodic

A brand new trailer for Final Fantasy VII Remake was unveiled during the PlayStation Experience presentation at the weekend. However, some other news eventually slithered out of Square Enix's office - the game will release in episodic format.

It's a bizarre turn of events, especially as the episodic model isn't usually a fit for RPGs. Square also took a lot of flack for announcing Hitman would be releasing in chunks, so they can expect something of a shit storm here.

Ratchet & Clank demo emphasises remake over remaster

With so many HD upgrades or new-gen remasters, you might be forgiven for overlooking the new Ratchet & Clank. After all you've already bought the game again for the HD trilogy, right? Wrong. This latest Ratchet & Clank isn't a shinier version, it's a proper remake, essentially rebooting the story to sit alongside next year's movie.

New levels, new script, new bosses, new weapons. Essentially the Ratchet game we thought we'd never see after Insomniac ditched Sony to work with EA (Fuse) and Microsoft (Sunset Overdrive). It's ok guys, you can't win 'em all. This brand new gameplay demo from the PlayStation Experience presentation shows that the studio haven't lost their touch. Bring on April 2016.

Don't own the Uncharted Collection? Want to play the Uncharted 4 beta? Here's a handy workaround

We know many of you have picked up Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection (especially after some of those Black Friday deals) but not everyone felt it was worth it. I, for one, have already played all three games and still have my PS3  hooked up (as a Netflix device, pretty much.) So, is it possible to take part in the Uncharted 4 beta that is now ongoing without buying a copy?

Well it turns out you can, but you're going to need a little help.

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided delayed until August 2016

I'm currently using every fiber of my being to not quote Adam Jenson here, because if there was ever a time to do so, it's right now.

This afternoon Eidos Montreal announced that Deus Ex: Mankind Divided has been hit by a six-month delay, and will now release on August 23rd 2016. In an statement posted on the official Deus Ex website, studio head David Anfossi apologised to fans whilst explaining that it was necessary to ensure the game met the expectations of both the community and its creators.

COMPETITION: Win one month EA Access and 10 hour Star Wars: Battlefront trial

[UPDATE: The competition is now closed. Check your email/twitter inboxes to see if you've won!]

Star Wars: Battlefront is almost here, but how would you like to play it even sooner? We have three codes to give away for a month of EA Access on Xbox One.

The highlight of EA's program right now being a free ten hour trial for Star Wars: Battlefront. That's right, you'll be able to download Battlefront as soon as you get a code and play it for ten hours, unlocking new gear, XP and achievements as you go. Then you'll have the option of buying the game via download or your save file will work when you pick up the disc version.

Once you've blitzed 10 hours on that though, you'll want to spend the rest of the month's access downloading a wealth of hot EA content included Dragon Age: Inquisition, Need for Speed Rivals, UFC, Madden 15, FIFA 15 and more.

There are two ways to enter and feel free to try through both (although you'll only win one code).

Nintendo Direct 12.11.15 Highlights | Twilights, Classics and Clouds

Last night’s Nintendo Direct had plenty of news for both 3DS and Wii U owners heading into Christmas, and while we didn’t get all the surprises we were expecting (no mention of Minecraft, for example) there was lots of talk about games coming early next year. The European stream, hosted by Satoru Shibata, kicked off by thanking fans for their kind words over the late Satoru Iwata, and promised that the Nintendo Direct shows would continue “delivering information directly to you.”

And it all kicked off with the HD remake many Zelda fans have been crying out for.

Nintendo Direct returns at 10pm GMT tonight - Find out how to watch it here

We haven't had one in quite some time, and we weren't even sure if they would return at all, but this evening Nintendo are broadcasting a brand new Nintendo Direct with updates on "upcoming Wii U and Nintendo 3DS releases." It's already been stated that there will be no news on the NX or on mobile titles, but that's not to say there won't be anything newsworthy. In fact, rumors are already circulating of one announcement that will be made this evening.

Pricing and dates for Unravel, Alienation, Shadow of the Beast and This War of Mine

Release dates of digital titles are often tricky to lock down, but a few of next year's early highlights have recently appeared for preorder on PSN with a release date and pricing information. They seem oddly specific too, so it's highly likely they're not placeholder preorders. For example, we can assume the Street Fighter V preorder for December 31st is a placeholder given Capcom have confirmed it'll be out later in 2016.

However, titles like Unravel, Alienation, Shadow of the Beast and This War of Mine: The Little Ones seem to have more reasonable looking dates on them. Naturally, as with any game, these are subject to change, but for now, you can preorder them for the following dates and prices.

How Disney Princesses would look in Fallout 4's world

Fallout 4 is set to rampage though our lives this week, but the pop culture invasion is already well under way. Digital artist, Peter Slavik (aka Petarsaur) has turned his talents to giving iconic Disney Princesses a Fallout-style makeover.

We most certainly approve and imagine the modding community will be having a crack at bringing them to the game over the next few months. Take a look at some more images below and be sure to check out his full collection over at Deviant Art.

Overwatch gets Spring 2016 release window, also coming to PS4 & Xbox One

This weekend's Blizzcon didn't have any unexpected surprises (with a number of reveals spoiled in the run up to the event) but we did get confirmation on a number of things. The main one was that Overwatch, Blizzard's upcoming hero shooter, will be getting a Spring 2016 release on PC, PS4 and Xbox One. While many had thought it would be going Free-To-Play, Blizzard confirmed that it will be getting a traditional full-priced retail release, along with a Origins special edition.

Fallout Pip-Boy app is out now for iOS and Android

With just five days away from the release of Fallout 4, Bethesda has release its companion app for the post-apocalyptic RPG. The Fallout Pip-Boy app was released onto the iTunes and Google Play Stores early this morning, and while the app won't do much at this point - it's a companion app, after all - you can nose around some of the options and play one of the mini-games that will be available - Atomic Command (ie. Missile Command.)

Are you excited for the upcoming release? Eager to put your smartphone in your very own Pip-Boy casing when it arrives? Sobbing into the rubber bands you'll be using as an alternative because you couldn't get hold of one? Let us know in the comments!

Prepare for the Warcraft: The Beginning trailer with the teasiest of teasers

Is "teasiest" a word? Probably not, but we'll go with it for now. News emerged yesterday that the first trailer for Warcraft: The Beginning will debut during the opening ceremony of this year's Blizzcon, which takes place on Friday. The first promotional poster accompanied the news, putting lead characters Duratan and Anduin Lothar head-to-head, but this afternoon a teaser video was posted on Twitter. We get quick glimpses of Gryphons, Stormwind, Nagrand, Direwolves, boomsticks, humans and orcs (not necessarily in that order.) See it for yourself after the jump.

It will also have an RRP of £77.99, which may seem excessive at first glance, but it does come with some high-end features.
