News: Japan's Holding Back the PlayStation 4

Japan's Holding Back the PlayStation 4

"We're jealous of Europe and US for the high rate of PS4 sales"

While the PlayStation 4 is breaking sales records all over the globe, Japan is proving a particularly tough nut to crack. With the nation becoming increasingly enamoured with smartphones, Sony's really finding it difficult to get consumers to pay attention to its new console. And one...

News: Japanese Sales Charts: The PS4 Is Stuck in a Real Rut

Japanese Sales Charts: The PS4 Is Stuck in a Real Rut

Sales are down once again

We'd recommend getting used to how these charts look, because the PlayStation 4's going nowhere in Japan as long as there's a distinct lack of exclusive software hitting Sony's latest home console. The new-gen machine tallied up sales of just 14,619 units last week. You can compare the prior week's sales charts through...

Commander Cherry's Puzzled Journey (PS4)

Review: Yasai Ninja (PS4)

Yasai Ninja (PS4)

​Like being forced to eat your greens

Yasai Ninja is a hack-and-slash game set in feudal Japan, where the two controllable characters are vegetables. You heard it correctly: an onion seeking revenge from his former sensei, and a hungry broccoli. No matter how many different ways you say it, it doesn't get any less weird. That's okay, right? A game...

Review: Actual Sunlight (PS Vita)

Actual Sunlight (PS Vita)

Actually depressing

Depression is a fairly common mood disorder that, despite its frequency, is still not considered a serious issue by many.

Actual Sunlight by Will O'Neill is a short, interactive,...

The Reviews Were Wrong, You Can Run in Everybody's Gone to the Rapture

Leg it

Oh dear, we're not sure who to blame on this one. Everybody's Gone to the Rapture got a slew of great reviews yesterday, but many critics were quick to call out the slow pace of the game. The title sees you exploring a deserted Shropshire with seemingly no way to speed up your movement speed, and as a result, reviewers have been slowly...
