Sony Yanks The Interview Amid Intensifying Threats

Firm has no plans for future release

We’re pretty sure that only Sony could spend approximately $40 million on a movie that has to be scrapped a week before release because of intensifying threats.

These Farming Simulator Peripherals Better Come to PS4

Raking it in

Giants Software’s curiously compelling Farming Simulator franchise may be the most authentic agricultural experience on the market barn none, but it would be a whole lot better with some tractor apparatus to really pull in the punters.

Wait, the PS4's Not Dead in Japan After All?

Signs of life

With smartphones and dedicated handhelds ruling the roost in Japan, it’s been a difficult first year for the PlayStation 4 in its home nation.

Secret Ponchos (PlayStation 4)

All hat, no cattle

Secret Ponchos is a Spaghetti Western-themed multiplayer game that, at the point of its arrival on the PlayStation 4, is also available to play through the Early Access programme on Steam.

Disgaea 5 Takes a Tense Tactical Turn Exclusively on Western PS4s in 2015

Grid-based grief

Tactical Japanese RPG Disgaea 5 – which, confusingly, is actually the sixth game in the franchise – was announced at Sony's pre-Tokyo Game Show conference earlier in the year. However, as it was a Japanese event, only an Eastern release date was announced, leaving the usual black cloud over the possibility of a Western launch...

Loadout Is Your Latest Free PS4 Download

Give it a whirl

When the PlayStation 4 launched last year, it played host to a bevy of free-to-play titles – but the trickle of complimentary content has been a little slower over the past six or so months.

Rollers of the Realm (PlayStation 4)

They see me rollin'

There are some unusual mash-ups of game genres out there that are either smashing successes or faltering failures. There are RPG third-person shooters like Mass Effect, hack-‘n’-slash action RPGs such as Darksiders II, and then there’s something like Destiny, an MMORPG open world first-person…well, you get the gist of...
