Sniper Elite III (PlayStation 4)

Boom headshot

It’s ironic that so soon after the release of Valiant Hearts: The Great War, another title with a very different outlook on war has stealthily marched onto the PlayStation 4.

Not Bought a PS4 Yet? This The Last of Us Remastered Bundle May Tempt You

Ellie of an entry point

While many have been swift to criticise the PlayStation 4’s first full year on the market, we reckon that Sony’s done an admirable job of beating the content drought and keeping a steady stream of software on store shelves. Only last month it collaborated closely with Ubisoft for the release of Watch Dogs, and it still...

PS4 Firmware Updates, Valiant Hearts, and July's PS Plus Freebies

A good catch up

Push Rewind was conceived as a means to keep you up to date with the weekly happenings on Planet PlayStation, but seeing as this editor’s been holidaying as far away from computer screens as humanly possible over the past seven or so days, this should prove a really rather resourceful recap for your humble host, too. We’re...

Who Wears Short Shorts? Er, Octodad in This Free PS4 DLC

Got the squids

Octodad: Dadliest Catch developer Young Horses understands that you can never have too much fun parading around vibrant environments as a cephalopod in disguise – and so it’s confirmed that freshly caught DLC is in the works for the zany PlayStation 4 indie.

PS4's First Gran Turismo Game Will Be Stuck at the Start Line for a Little While Yet

Off the mark

This editor’s gaming news engine has been stationary for a few days now, so what better way to remove the rust than with a cheeky post about Gran Turismo 7? It would appear that the industry’s still very much in first gear following the excitement of E3 2014 earlier in the month, but speaking with Eurogamer.net at the Goodwood...

Here's Every Trophy You'll Be Able to Earn in Upcoming PS4 Shooter Destiny

Spoilers, probably

We all play games for different reasons. Some of us like to get lost in grand and intricate stories, while others are much more interested in rock-solid gameplay. Perhaps the most peculiar breed of gamer, though, is the one that plays purely for the trophies. If you fall into this latter category, we're pleased to share with you...

Review: Atelier Rorona Plus: The Alchemist of Arland (PlayStation Network - Vita)

Atelier Rorona Plus: The Alchemist of Arland (PlayStation Network - Vita)

Mix it up

Shop keepers are an important part of almost every RPG, but they very rarely get the attention that they deserve. They focus a bunch of effort into putting together a nice collection of weapons and potions, and do they even get a spot in the final cutscene? Were they even asked? In Atelier Rorona Plus: The Alchemist of Arland, you’re...

Tales of Xillia 2 is only a couple of months away, and as you'd expect, publisher Bandai Namco is starting to throw out numerous trailers that detail the title's party members. Today, we start with the JRPG's two main characters: Ludger and Elle. As you can tell, it's probably best that protagonist Ludger is taking responsibility for...

Still Curious about No Man's Sky on PS4? This Video Should Answer a Lot of Your Questions

Space age

It stole the show at E3 along with our Best Game of E3 award, but that hasn't stopped Sony from releasing a rather lengthy trailer that sheds a lot of light on No Man's Sky finer points. The seven minute video covers development of the game, how tiny studio Hello Games got the hype ball rolling, and how the developer has reacted to all...
