Grand Theft Auto V PS4 Scores Stealth Stability Patch

More stable than Trevor

Rockstar Games is pushing out patches for Grand Theft Auto V at a record setting pace.

All about that bass

As our very own Graham Banas will inform you, there’s more to a game’s presentation than its looks. Sound is something that often goes underappreciated in this visual driven industry, but it’s the glue that holds everything together.

Christmas cheer

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...

25th November 2014 (North America)

Different dimension

A much more condensed North American PlayStation Store update this week, but that doesn’t mean that it isn’t packing some worthwhile additions.

Grand Theft Auto V (PlayStation 4)

It's Always Sunny in Los Santos

A return trip to Los Santos on the PlayStation 4 was inevitable, given Grand Theft Auto V's gigantic success on Sony's previous home console.
