PlayStation Games on Steam, Starfield Rumours

Today: Thanks to the ZeniMax acquisition, Microsoft is publishing two PlayStation 5 exclusives — Katy Perry x Pokémon collaboration finally unveiled — Hades is finally coming to PlayStation 4

PlayStation Studios page live on Steam

Uncharted and God of War could see a PC release

Steam now features a dedicated curated page for PlayStation Studios, listing all the PC versions of formerly exclusive PlayStation games.

You can find the page by following links from the top of the Days Gone, Helldivers and Horizon: Zero Dawn store pages. At the moment, there are just three games listed and 21 DLC offerings.

Vanguard: Days Gone hits Steam this week, and Sony has hinted that many more of their first-party games will appear on PC after Horizon: Zero Dawn's considerable success.

More to come: The page listed 41 items at first, which means quite a few products are hidden. Since DLC is counted, 24 items appear on the curated page at the moment. Could we see Uncharted and God of War? 

According to the Guinness Book of World Records 2018: Gamers Edition, who is the most popular game character to cosplay?

a) Phoenix Wright
b) Junko Enoshima
c) Ivy
d) Mario

The answer will be revealed at the bottom of today's issue. Join up with our community on Twitter and Facebook to discuss what the answer could be.

Woody and Buzz couldn’t make the party

Concept art from Kingdom Hearts shows that Toy Story was supposed to be an important part of the game, with an entire world based on Andy’s toys. Someone must have changed their minds big time because none of it appeared in the series.

Kingdom Hearts III would eventually include Toy Story

There’s plenty of little details for Disney and Square fans, though: Kathryn Beaumont reprised her roles as Alice from Alice in Wonderland and Wendy from Peter Pan, while some Gummi Block Blueprints are named after Final Fantasy characters.

Starfield to be “exclusive to Xbox and PC”

Leaks have been surfacing for Starfield lately

Jeff Grubb of GameBeat claims that Bethesda's upcoming sci-fi RPG Starfield is “exclusive to Xbox and PC. Period.”

The future of Bethesda's upcoming games has been up in the air since Microsoft acquired ZeniMax Media and the entire Bethesda Softworks catalogue. Ahead of the acquisition, the line was that games would be released on the platforms they were originally announced for.

Microsoft on PlayStation: That means Deathloop and Ghostwire: Tokyo will remain PlayStation 5 exclusives even though they will technically be published by Microsoft – but don't be surprised if future games from Bethesda Softworks eschews PlayStation.

Better on Xbox: Xbox CFO Tim Stuart added that they will take a “either first or better or best” on Xbox approach, which could mean timed rather than total exclusivity. Grubb expects to see Starfield at E3 in June, and believes it will be out sometime next year.

  • Xbox Insiders get their first taste of Dolby Vision as the feature rolls out on Xbox Series X/S this week
  • Try out Knockout City in free trial on May 21st featuring 10 days of competitive dodgebrawl
  • The P25 Official Music Store has launched featuring Pokémon 25th anniversary merchandise and Katy Perry’s ‘Electric’
  • Hades rated for PlayStation 4 by Korean Game Rating and Administration Committee with Take-Two attached as publisher, but the listing has since been removed
  • Disco Elysium: The Final Cut finally goes on sale in Australia with an R18+ certification thanks to depictions of drug use in the game

According to the Guinness Book of World Records 2018: Gamers Edition, who is the most popular game character to cosplay?

I’d also dress like her if I could find those boots in my size.

ANSWER: Junko Enoshima!

Danganronpa isn’t exactly the kind of game you expect to find in Guinness Book of World Records, but according to the 2018 gamer’s edition, a Danganronpa character is the most popular subject of cosplay.

The website, which catalogues cosplay photography, features almost 8,000 photos of cosplayers dressed as Junko Enoshima, the villain from Danganronpa. However, there’s more to cosplay culture than just one website, so it’s not really solid evidence that the Ultimate Fashionista is the face of cosplay. But hey, there’s no denying that Ultimate Despair is a stylish look.
