Sony are looking to build upon strong reception and sales of the first Spiderman game, while also hoping the upcoming Spiderman: No Way Home film will boost cross-promotion for the game.

Spiderman 2 developer Insomniac Games also announced a Marvel: Wolverine game, saying that collaborating with Marvel has been a career highlight for those at the studio.

“What’s so exciting is that our collaboration isn’t ending anytime soon, as today we revealed not one—but TWO—new Marvel titles coming from Insomniac Games: Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 and Marvel’s Wolverine.” they said on the playstation blog.

Also featured in the Sony Showcase was a new trailer for Marvel’s Guardian of the Galaxy. The game will release on the 26th of October.

Lucas Arts and Biotech announced a Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic remake. Well received upon release in 2003, the series has grown a large fanbase. It has spawned sequel series including the MMO Star Wars: The Old Republic.

Sony said in a blog that the game would be a complete rebuild of the original game.

“With Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic – Remake, our hope is to give both series newcomers and long-term fans an experience that can live alongside the very best modern releases,” Sony said.

“We’re rebuilding it from the ground up with the latest tech to match the groundbreaking standard of innovation established by the original, all while staying true to its revered story.”

Sony featured the highly anticipated God of War: Ragnarok with a trailer. Playstation’s Helmut Hulst said that the series would be the finale in the ‘Norse’ saga in the post show interview, and players would see the prophesied end times of Norse mythology.


Ubisoft showed off their Rainbow Six: Siege spinoff Rainbow Six: Extraction, which has received a lukewarm reception from the Siege fanbase so far.

Along with trailers for Deathloop, Gran Turismo 7, Vampire the Masquerade: Bloodhunt, Borderlands spinoff Tiny Tina’s Wonderland, an Alan Wake remake, Horizon Forbidden West, and an Uncharted 4 remake, Sony announced a host of new games to help alleviate what some fans believe are a lack of exclusives for the Playstation 5.

Australian news outlets can be sued for social media comments

Published

In a landmark ruling, Australian media companies will now be held liable for any defamatory comments their users make on their social media posts

The decision is likely to have major impacts on the way news outlets and other organisations post online.

It follows the case of a former teenage prisoner suing Nine Entertainment and News Corp over comments posted under their articles about his treatment whilst behind bars.

Both companies could now face damages.

Experts believe this world-first judgment will have a major influence on jurisdictions right around the globe

Over the four-year legal battle, the media companies both argued that they were not liable because they are not the publishers of the comments.

However, this argument was among many rejected by the Supreme Court of New South Wales, which ruled against the news organisations back in 2019.

This judgment was then upheld by the High Court of Australia this week.
