Kotaku covers all sorts of things that float in the orbit of video games and internet culture, but if you just want to read about the games themselves, this is where to come. All of our games news, features, reviews and more live here.

Photographer Danny Passarella has travelled the world collecting old arcade machines, bringing them home to the UK where he can take these stunning images of them. They're like brilliant old arcade posters, if the world hadn't stopped making arcade posters.
There's a lot on the way in today's new 1.7 update for PS4. As well as the end of HDCP and all the video related stuff there's a ton of new features and options including the much requested ability to dim the DualShock light.
