In news that has me quite literally jumping out of my seat with excitement, a Fast and Furious x Jurassic Park crossover is a very real possibility. Fast and Furious 9 director Justin Lin and star Michelle Rodriguez caused absolute chaos in a recent interview with Collider when he said he wouldn’t rule…
A system update to the PS5 has fixed a long-running issue with Samsung TVs that stopped the console from running 4K 120Hz visuals in HDR.
Yoshiyuki Tomino is an anime legend. At his age, you might think he’s checked out, retired, and is taking it easy. You’d be wrong.
When one of my Nintendo Switch Joy-Cons began drifting I wasn’t terribly concerned. After the 2019 class action lawsuit where Nintendo of America supposedly agreed to free repairs for all Joy-Con controllers in perpetuity without a proof of purchase, I naturally assumed Nintendo Australia would follow suit.
The PS5’s hard drive is pretty tiny, and you can’t move PS5 games to a portable SSD drive yet. Fortunately, you can store and play PS4 games on an external drive — and if you want to save as much of the PS5’s precious ultra-high speed space as possible, then you’ll need a portable SSD.
As part of Backlog month, I wanted to reach deep into the collection and talk about one of the greatest video games of all time, one that nailed everything it set out to do so well that even 27 years later it remains as fun and relevant as it was when it first dropped.
New Pokemon Snap is only a fortnight away, and there’s still tons of questions to answer about the revamped on-rails photography experience. Fortunately, Nintendo answered a ton of those this morning. The company published a six-plus minute trailer earlier this morning covering just about everything you’ll want to know from New…
It’s no secret that Twitch has a problem with viewbots, which are fake viewers that artificially inflate streamers’ numbers. They’ve been part of the ecosystem for years, both as a means of making streamers look more popular than they are and, more recently, a tool trolls use maliciously to try…
Steam’s refund policy can be hugely beneficial if you’ve stumbled onto a game you don’t love, but for developers of short games it presents a major risk.
There’s an common narrative among gaming forums and fans that says the success of one game is often detrimental to the hopes of another. In 2021, that massive hit is Valheim, the Viking-themed survival simulator that abandons many of the orthoxodies around survival games. So it’s normal for people to look at Valheim’s success and fear what that means for other survival games. And that’s true enough for Icarus, the PvE sci-fi survival adventure from DayZ creator Dean Hall. But in an hour-long chat with the Kiwi creator, Hall explained that Valheim’s stratospheric success actually validates some of Icarus’ ideas.
After debuting last year, Destiny 2’s limited-time Guardian Games event is returning on April 20, alongside a super neat tennis ball Ghost.
I’m not sure I’ve ever encountered a character creator as aggressively bland as the one in Outriders. All the faces are minor variations on Beefy Woodsman. Hair colours range from black to dull brown. Every decal is an unobtrusive scar, except for a lone chrome eyebrow implant that may as…
Skate City, the artful street skating game from Alto’s Odyssey creators Snowman, finally makes the leap from Apple Arcade to PC and console next month, bringing its chill lo-fi beats and dreamy rides to PlayStations, Xboxens, Switch, and PC on May 6.
It’s been 3 years since We Happy Few was banned, but someone has filed an FOI request about it, according to the official discloure log.
I am very much developing a thing for more responsible video game packaging, and so this blog by Sony on how they’re cutting down on plastics in their PlayStation boxes was pretty interesting reading.

On March 14, Ludwig Ahgren started a stream with no set end date. Last night, an entire month later, it finally ended.
Overwatch League Homestands are back, kinda. Today, the Overwatch League announced Homestands — live match events — will be returning during the 2021 season, but only in China.
One of the golden rules of gaming: There’s always a discount. And being one of Australia’s biggest retailers JB Hi-Fi has plenty of bargains, including Death Stranding for $19, Borderlands 3 for $19, Spider-Man for $19, Red Dead Redemption 2 on sale, a disc version of Final Fantasy VII Remake for $29, and if you’re willing to take the plunge now, Cyberpunk 2077 on Sony consoles.
The latest PS5 update finally allows players to move games to an extended storage device. So how can you make the most of it?
The PS3’s life is coming to an end, so if you’re going to store the console away you might as well load it up with the console’s greatest hits.
We talk about game development a lot here on Kotaku Australia, but it’s pretty rare that we get a chance to show off what the very early stage of development looks like. And it’s even rarer when those early stages also involve … Mark Bonanno from Aunty Donna?
Persona games and spin-offs, name a more iconic duo.

After a year and a half of noncommittal colours like grey, turquoise, bad mayonnaise yellow, and coral, Nintendo gives us a Switch Lite that’s confident enough to call itself blue, even though it’s sort of purplish, depending on your eyes and/or display settings.
There are backlogs, and there are theoretical backlogs. Those games you never bought, but heard about, thought about getting, and then never did for whatever reason. I’m finding this fallow period for big game releases an excellent opportunity to reach into that pile of potential purchases, and grab something I…
The first major update for the PlayStation 5 console is due to land on Wednesday, April 14, and among the additions and improvements to the console are the ability to keep games on USB storage, new social features, and changes to the PlayStation app.
You can never have too many portable drives on hand. Having a spare drive that you can use for a quick back up is always handy. While a hard disk drive will give you more space for a cheaper price, its mechanical nature means that it will wear down over…
Nintendo got its start making playing cards. Sega began making amusement machines for the US military. And Taito? It was the first company to distil vodka in Japan.
Let me tell you about an emotional rollercoaster I’ve been on for the past eight months. It’s a cautionary tale, about the perils of obsessing over PC hardware, but also one of celebration, a triumph against the odds.
