God of War is getting a New Game+ mode

Coming "at a later date".

Sony has revealed, during its PlayStation E3 showcase, that God of War will be getting a New Game+ mode in a future update - as apparently requested by many fans.

God of War sales flatten Nintendo Labo's debut

PlayStation 4 exclusive God of War remains in the UK chart top spot again this week, despite the debut of two Nintendo Labo packs.

Labo, Nintendo Switch's new papercraft accessory system, landed in third place behind God of War and Far Cry 5 for its main £60 Variety Kit, and in 20th place for its £70 robot kit.

It's hard to judge how well Labo has done in comparison to expectations. It's an expensive kit (much of which will be taken up by the cost of the physical Switch game cartridge) but the range feels like one designed to sell continuously over time (and especially over Christmas). For something intended to have a slow sales burn, then, it is off to a decent start.

Upcoming PS4 exclusives God of War, Detroit and Spider-Man currently unavailable to pre-order from Amazon

UPDATE 20/4/18: God of War launches today and is now available to buy from Amazon, despite the retailer closing pre-orders for the game earlier this week.

Other upcoming PlayStation 4 exclusives like Detroit and Spider-Man remain unavailable to pre-order, with no explanation given.

Whatever the beef is with PlayStation and Amazon, it appears to relate to the pre-ordering of games only. Happily, we haven't heard any reports that pre-orders sent in before Amazon shut them down were not received as expected.

Sony unveils God of War limited edition custom PlayStation 4 Pro

Sony has revealed that a new God of War themed custom PS4 Pro will be launching on April 20th, the same day that Kratos' makes his highly anticipated return on the console.

As is usually the case with Sony's custom PlayStation 4 efforts, it's probably fair to say that the bold, limited edition design won't be to everyone's taste - but your mileage may vary:

Sony is calling the design "Leviathan Grey", and it's apparently inspired by Kratos' in-game axe. A purchase will get you the custom 1TB PS4 Pro console itself, alongside a matching Dualshock 4 wireless controller, and a physical copy of the God of War Day One Edition.

Art allegedly from Sony Santa Monica's cancelled sci-fi PS4 IP emerges

Art allegedly from Sony Santa Monica's cancelled sci-fi PS4 IP emerges

Explore alien worlds where humanoids ride bareback on a kind of unicorn.

In 2014, God of War developer Sony Santa Monica suffered layoffs when a new PS4 IP it was working on was cancelled following years of work. The game was rumoured to be sci-fi-themed but largely remained a mystery.

Now, however, thanks to a gallery of concept art allegedly from the cancelled project, we have a better idea of what the game was about. The images show an idea not a million miles away from James Cameron's Avatar film(s). A gadget-laden human species explores an alien world where fantastical beast roam land and sea. There's a mysterious humanoid species too, riding bareback on hulking unicorn-like beast, brandishing spears. Clearly there's a kind of magic in the air.

The pictures belong to the leader of the concept art team who worked on the project for nearly three years. They were found on the person's personal website by nerdleaks but have since been removed from what I can see. The pictures are, however, preserved on Imgur.
