Sean Bean will be killed off again, this time as Hitman 2’s first elusive target

Tom Phillips News Editor @tomphillipsEG Everyone knows Sean Bean dies in (almost) every film he’s in. But now you’ll get to kill him yourself – as the first Elusive Target in Hitman 2. Better known as Boromir, Sharpe or poor old Ned Stark, Sean Bean will appear in Hitman 2 as a former MI5 agent – in a very knowing nod to his classic role as 006 in GoldenEye. “I even managed to make them think I’d been blown up,” Trevelyn – sorry, Bean – says in the trailer below:…

Japanese Sales Charts: Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Is a Huge Hit on PS4

Last week’s number one, Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, slipped to third, while Marvel’s Spider-Man remains in the top ten, and is now closing…

Rumour: Red Dead Redemption 2 Physical Copy May Come with Two Discs on PS4

Please insert disc 2 by Stephen Tailby 10 hours ago We know that Red Dead Redemption 2’s install size is pretty huge, but what does that mean for people who buy the game physically? Discs these days usually just load the game onto the hard drive, but at about 100GB, will one Blu-Ray be enough? According to this image of the Japanese box art, it isn’t. The back of the box seems to indicate that the physical version of Rockstar’s Western epic will come with two Blu-Rays — presumably one…

Microsoft currently seems to be on a mission to make every single game Xbox backwards compatible. Which is great news for us, really, as creatures of nostalgia. The latest games to be made backwards compatible are those in the Crysis series – including the original, and sequels Crysis 2 and 3. The first two science fiction shooters by Crytek were released on Xbox 360 in 2011, with Crysis 3 following in 2013, and focus on military personnel in nanosuits (exoskeletons) who are sent to undertake missions for the United States…

PS4 Firmware Update 6.02 Released, ‘Improves System Performance’

Sony has released a new firmware update for PS4, taking it to version 6.02. This mandatory update is available to download now, and weighs in at 447.4MB, which won’t trouble most connections these days. But what does update 6.02 do? Well, the official wording from Sony is its usual statement: “This system software update improves system performance.” However, it’s entirely possible that this small patch fixes the infamous PSN message problem, where users are sent messages the PS4 can’t read, forcing it into a crash loop. The platform holder hasn’t…
