A video game show on the box, eh? Not had one of those in a while. But come 5th September on Dave we will - Dara O Briain's Go 8 Bit.

We built a PC with PlayStation Neo's GPU tech

We're months away from the release of PlayStation Neo and as things stand, with a marketing black-out from Sony, it's still unclear what the purpose actually is for this faster, more powerful console. All we have to go on are leaked developer guidelines, which demand feature parity with the existing PlayStation 4. Show More Summary

PlayStation Store summer sale looks surprisingly good

What the heck is Darksiders: Warmastered Edition

NX is different, and different is Nintendo's best option

Earlier this week, we reported that Nintendo NX will be a hybrid portable console, powered by Nvidia's Tegra mobile chipset. We'd heard both elements of this story as isolated rumours before, but suddenly - presumably in the wake of a round of presentations by Nintendo - we were able to corroborate both with multiple reliable sources.

Alan Wake and Quantum Break developer Remedy Entertainment has joined forces with South Korean developer Smilegate to make the story campaign for its impending free-to-play FPS CrossFire 2.

Metal Gear Solid 5 Definitive Edition spotted at various retailers

Someone's hit the Pokémon Go level cap

At last, someone has managed to reach Pokémon Go's level cap of 40. Hitting level 40 is very, very difficult. Pokémon Go's levelling system seriously stretches out the XP needed to climb higher from around level 30 onwards. Then, between levels 39 and 40, you need a whopping 5m XP - a tenth of the full amount it takes to go from zero to 40. Read more…

Will Richard Garriott's Lord British survive the night?

Will Richard Garriott's Lord British survive the night? That's the big question - because history predicts his death. Remember what happened in Ultima Online? Lord British was famously killed on the ramparts of Blackthorn castle by a mere commoner. Show More Summary
