News Snatch: Tales of Zestiria, Free SSX And PlayStation 5

Greetings, first Snatch of the year then and with it a surprising lack of videos (and news, actually) so let’s start with a load of screenshots for Tales of Zestiria which is coming to PS3 to the franchise’s 20th anniversary.

Sony are going to have a little rest and then start thinking about the PlayStation 5 according PlayStation Software Product Development Head, Scott Rohde, who spoke to MTV and said:

“As soon as you launch a new console you have to take a breather, there’s gonna be a couple of years where we’re just enhancing this machine and making it as great as it can be. And of course very soon, we’ll start thinking about what we’ll do next. That’s the culture at Sony. We always have to do something that’s bigger and better than what’s already been done.”

Almost makes me want to buy an Xbox… 1533354_10153767016635160_1002152736_n

Looks like there will be at least two rally games coming from the Codies…

The PS3 version of SSX is now available for free for Xperia smartphones, but only Xperia phones. It does a little check to see what sort of phone you have which obviously you cannot get round and certainly should not consult Google to find a way around the checks. All clear? Do not do that. That would be naughty.

A developer diary for the newly announced survival horror game, Alien: Isolation, showing why they chose to only include a singular Xenomorph.

This is a poster for the forthcoming live action Street Fighter series, Assassin’s Fist. Ken has lovely long blonde hair and is played by Holly Willoughby by the looks of it. In a recent survey, the most useful talent gained by journalists working in video games is the ability to get the correct number of S’s in the word “assassin’s” – as we have to type it almost every friggin day. streetfighter_assassinsfist

And Finally, a new video by Rayman (and seemingly Pokémon) fan, Snoop Lion.


  1. The last guardian to be a PS5 launch title, you heard it here first!

    • Let’s be realistic about this… PS6 beta.

      • You’re being silly. It’ll be out on the PSHolo Bacon.

  2. My first bit of snatch this year & it hasn’t even cost me a drink. Cheers TC

  3. I’ll have that SSX on my Super Sony Xperia thankyouverymuch.

    • I downloaded it Sunday but havent played it yet. Let me know what its like

    • I tried it on my Xperia S and got ‘Sorry SSX is only available for Free on Sony Xperia Z1 and Xperia Z Ultra.’ Always the same crap when anything is free for ‘Xperia devices’.
