Black Friday 2014 Deals - Every PS4, PS3, and PlayStation Vita Sale

What are the best doorbusters?

Much like Christmas, the build-up to Black Friday has been unbearable at times. Retailers have been teasing PlayStation savings for weeks now, so it’s strange to think that in just over 24 hours, everything will be more or less sold out. Still, if you play your cards right, there are bargains to be found – and...

What Are December 2014's Free PlayStation Plus Games?

Christmas cheer

Thanksgiving is right around the corner for our American readers, but we suspect that the quality of December’s forthcoming PlayStation Plus update will determine just how thankful we’re all feeling come tomorrow morning. Silliness aside, Sony has unveiled this month’s free game refresh a little earlier than usual, presumably...

First Impressions: Enlisting in The Tomorrow Children, PS4's Great Social Experiment

Enlisting in The Tomorrow Children, PS4's Great Social Experiment

Off to work we go

The Tomorrow Children is the type of title that you’d only ever find on PlayStation. We’re not referring to the fact that Sony’s footing the bill of this Q-Games developed curiosity – or the vaguely disingenuous PR sound bites that tend to filter out of first-party outfits from time-to-time – but the mere notion that...

Five Reasons Why You Should Buy a PS4 This Holiday

Perfect moment

We’re often guilty of forgetting that not everyone owns a PlayStation 4 yet. While there’s no doubt that Sony’s next-gen system has raced out of the gates like an American shopper looking for a decent deal on Black Friday, the Japanese giant has only shipped a total of 13.5 million units to date. That means that

Round Up: Tales from the Borderlands PS4, PS3 Reviews Crack a Joke

Tales from the Borderlands PS4, PS3 Reviews Crack a Joke

Apparently not Claptrap

Seeing as Borderlands is about as funny as being slapped around the face with a wet fish, we were always sceptical of Tales from the Borderlands. The latest episodic series from Telltale Games strips out the first-person shooting from Gearbox’s titles – and focuses instead upon the people of Pandora. Sounds like a...

Out This Week: Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions, Aqua Kitty DX, Akiba's Trip PS4

Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions, Aqua Kitty DX, Akiba's Trip PS4

Bizarre creations

After last week’s deluge of tasty titles, you could be forgiven for thinking that this week’s roster of PlayStation releases may be a little thin on the ground – but it’s surprisingly stacked for the days prior to Thanksgiving. Granted, there are no major blockbusters vying for your attention here, but we reckon that the...

Push Rewind: Grand Theft Auto V PS4, Dragon Age: Inquisition, Far Cry 4

Grand Theft Auto V PS4, Dragon Age: Inquisition, Far Cry 4

The big one

If we’re honest, it’s been a pretty slow week for news – but the wealth of fresh releases has more than made up for things. We’ve been busy working our way through dozens of big titles for review this week, and while we’ve still got our final verdict on Grand Theft Auto V to come, we’re going to give ourselves a pat on the...

What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 47

Age of dragons

Well now, there are no shortage of new titles to talk about this weekend, are there? While we still can’t seem to convince associate editor Robert Ramsey to participate in one of these – he’s been playing Dragon Age: Inquisition as if it’s going out of fashion for days now – there’s plenty of variety from the rest of the...

15 Awesome PS4, Vita Indie Games That We Haven't Had Time to Tell You About Yet

Catch up

Not every indie game is amazing, but we very much appreciate the existence of the space. While this week has proven that blockbuster titles are not going anywhere – Grand Theft Auto V! Far Cry 4! LittleBigPlanet 3! Dragon Age: Inquisition! – we like to think of the smaller content as the palette cleansers that prepare you for your...

LittleBigPlanet 3's Stellar Soundtrack Is Already Winning Awards

Prize bubble

Sony’s last major release of the year, LittleBigPlanet 3, is a real gem, dragging Media Molecule’s do-it-yourself series into the future with a laundry list of tweaks and improvements. It’s already winning awards as well, as composer Winifred Phillips has received a Hollywood Music in Media Award for one of her contributions to...

Guide: How to Make Massive Amounts of Money in Grand Theft Auto V PS4

How to Make Massive Amounts of Money in Grand Theft Auto V PS4

Get rich quick

What good is life if you haven’t got a tennis court in your back garden and a fleet of sports cars stored in your garage? Money is what makes the world go around, and while it’s not exactly easy to earn stacks of it in real life, there are no pesky laws in Los Santos – well, none that you need to abide by anyway. While it’s...

Coming Home to Grand Theft Auto V on PS4

The city of sinners

There’s nothing quite like coming home – or so they say. In truth, this editor has spent the last couple of decades living in the exact same sleepy city, so wouldn’t really know what it’s like to return after several years away – but we imagine that it’s a little like playing Grand Theft Auto V on the PlayStation 4...

Out This Week: Grand Theft Auto V PS4, LittleBigPlanet 3, Far Cry 4, Dragon Age, WWE 2K15

Grand Theft Auto V PS4, LittleBigPlanet 3, Far Cry 4, Dragon Age, WWE 2K15

Oh em gee

Hold onto your hats and wallets everyone, because this is the week that you’ve been waiting for. It’s been a disappointing year in general for gaming, but the penultimate Tuesday before Thanksgiving may yet redeem everything. Vying for your attention from tomorrow in North America are a handful of teensy titles, including Grand Theft...

Round Up: Grand Theft Auto V PS4 Reviews Extort Super High Scores

Grand Theft Auto V PS4 Reviews Extort Super High Scores

Franklin amazing

We already know that Grand Theft Auto V is amazing, so there was never any real danger of it deploying on the PlayStation 4 with poor review scores – unless, of course, it winded up being broken like every other major next-gen launch of late. Fortunately, that doesn’t appear to be the case, as critics are already pinning high...

What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 46

Everybody loves good Neighbours

We’re in the eye of the storm. Next week marks the release of the last few big holiday titles, and then it’s back to relative silence until the New Year. As such, this is another condensed issue of WAYP from our staff’s point of view – but we bet that you’ve got lots to talk about in the comments section...

Talking Point: Is This Gaming's Most Disappointing Ever Year?

Is This Gaming's Most Disappointing Ever Year?

Down for the count

If this is next-gen, then we wished that greatness would have waited until it was ready. We were going to pen this article a little later in the month – the release schedule is still stacked with several other blockbuster titles – but with the Assassin’s Creed Unity saga still a sour taste on the industry’s lips, we’ve...

Four of Assassin's Creed Unity's Most Gloriously Ghastly PS4 Glitches

Temp scar

No one deserves to be singled out for their appearance, and Ubisoft clearly believes passionately in that sentiment. Recognising that the Hunchback of Notre Dame has been persecuted for centuries based on his unusual exterior, the French firm has decided that the ugly individual deserves some company – and so these Assassin’s Creed...

First Impressions: How Well Does Assassin's Creed Unity Actually Run on PS4?

How Well Does Assassin's Creed Unity Actually Run on PS4?

Not quite a revolution

We're still working on our full review of Assassin's Creed Unity, but with all of this speculation as to how the game actually looks and runs on the PlayStation 4, we thought that it'd be a good idea to put forward a report on the matter. We're a reasonable way into the sandbox adventure, and by this point, we reckon that...

Assassin's Creed Unity PS4 Reviews Plot a Revolution

Paper tigers

Well, it wouldn’t be a new Ubisoft title without a bit of controversy, would it? Assassin’s Creed Unity has ruffled feathers for all of the wrong reasons over the past six months, with pundits complaining about everything from the game’s lack of female characters all the way through to those infamous parity comments. Along the...
