Round Up: Alien: Isolation PS4 Reviews Hold Their Breath

Alien: Isolation PS4 Reviews Hold Their Breath

Don't make a sound

You’d think that it would be easy to make a game about eight-foot aliens stomping around spaceships. However, if the abysmal Aliens: Colonial Marines taught us anything, it’s that it’s not so straightforward at all. Fortunately, the Creative Assembly has been quietly attempting to write a few wrongs behind its...

First Impressions: Squeezing the Cheeks of LittleBigPlanet 3 on PS4

Squeezing the Cheeks of LittleBigPlanet 3 on PS4

Sack joy

Like a cuddly toy that’s slipped down the side of a forgetful infant’s bed, there’s a sense that LittleBigPlanet 3 is getting overlooked. Caught among the onslaught of holiday releases, Sackboy and his band of burlap buddies have failed to catch the interest of the robotic hordes fawning over annualised outings such as Call of Duty:...

Forget That Awesome UK PS4 Package, This One Is Better

Impulse purchase

There has never been a better time to buy a PlayStation 4 in the UK. Retailers are competing for your custom ahead of the busy Christmas shopping season, and prices are getting slashed like there’s no tomorrow. There are also some great unofficial bundles doing the rounds, like the one that we spotted at GAME earlier in the week...

Rumour: 14GB Will Be Enough to Contain the Cuteness of PS4 Exclusive LittleBigPlanet 3

14GB Will Be Enough to Contain the Cuteness of PS4 Exclusive LittleBigPlanet 3

PS Move compatibility also on the cards

A little like DriveClub, the upcoming LittleBigPlanet 3 is one of those titles that we want nestling on our PlayStation 4’s hard drive. Sony’s exclusive lineup this year seems built around pickup and play experiences that will have long legs, and Sackboy’s latest errand looks particularly likely to...

PlayStation Home May Live on the PlayStation 4 Yet

Another brick in the wall

PlayStation Home is being boarded up. Sony announced late last week that it will be evicting residents from its ambitious virtual world, and dismantling the servers like an old block of flats. For many of us, it’s an opportunity to point and laugh at the service’s protracted lifespan – but this move is going to...

EGX London Hammers Another Nail in PS Vita's Coffin

Dead too soon

Sony managed to squeeze a double-decker bus onto its booth at EGX London last week, but we didn’t spot a single PlayStation Vita. The flailing format has been largely ignored at the platform holder’s various press conferences this year, but has always enjoyed a strong showfloor presence, with titles such as Freedom Wars and

This Enormous PS4 Bundle Is Bordering on Parody

Chuck everything in

In addition to wiping the floor with Microsoft's abhorrent used games policies, Sony’s strategy for the latest generation seems to have centred on one very simple tactic: bundle everything. The platform holder has announced a dizzying number of hardware packages over the past 12 months, and this set available in Germany is the...

Telltale's The Walking Dead, Er, Walks onto PS4 on 24th October

It's about Clemen-time

The Walking Dead has seemingly been shambling onto the PlayStation 4 for months now. However, after an almost endless run of rumours, developer Telltale Games has confirmed that the title will be launching for the super system on 24th October. To be clear, both seasons will be released separately, in digital and

What Do the PlayStation Vita's First Themes Look Like?

Suits you, sir

Unlike the PlayStation 4, the PlayStation Vita has always been relatively customisable. Straight out of the box, Sony allowed you to personalise the platform’s bubbly user interface with different colours and pictures – but that functionality’s evolved today. As part of the portable’s v3.30 firmware update, the company has...

Sony: The Last Guardian Development Couldn't Be Better

"That might be a bit of an exaggeration"

At this point, we’re convinced that the inevitable documentary detailing the production of The Last Guardian will be better than any game that Team ICO actually manage to ship. As part of an interview with Japanese publication Famitsu, Sony Worldwide Studios gaffer Shuhei Yoshida reiterated that the long...

Firmware Update 3.30 Brightens Up PS Vita with Themes

Dream theme

Want to know what’s better than first-party games? Themes, of course! Sony may have more or less pulled the plug on internal PlayStation Vita development, but at least it’s released a new firmware update that promises to bring a slew of pretty patterns to your favourite portable. Beginning today, you’ll be able to

The boys are back in town

Phew, we just about managed to catch this one. At 12PM BST, Square Enix will be live streaming an extended Tokyo Game Show presentation which will feature Final Fantasy XV and Final Fantasy Type 0 HD. Sounds good, doesn't it? The only problem, though, is that we're completely unsure how 'extended' the showing will actually...

What Do You Get in DriveClub: PS Plus Edition on PS4?

Fast and furious

DriveClub: PS Plus Edition is undoubtedly the highlight of October’s massive PlayStation Plus update, but you may be pondering what the free PlayStation 4 download actually includes. As the name indicates, this isn’t the full version of Evolution Studios’ next-gen racer, but a cut down copy designed to give you a taste of...

Sigh! Even Sony Can't Resist Ruffling Fanboy Feathers

Not this again

Virtually all video game trailers include carefully selected press quotes, but this DriveClub clip just couldn’t resist fuelling the fanboy flames. At one point in the 90-second promo embedded below, the platform holder points out that Evolution Studios’ next-gen racer is the PlayStation 4’s purported 'Forza killer'. Granted,...
