News: So, Does Destiny Look Any Good on the PS3?

So, Does Destiny Look Any Good on the PS3?

Judge for yourself

While the PlayStation 3 may command a much larger install base than the PlayStation 4, there’s no doubt that gaming mindshare has switched to Sony’s next-gen machine. As such, it’s pretty easy to forget that Destiny is even releasing on the Japanese giant’s age-old hardware in the first place – let alone that you can...

News: PSN Offline for Some as Bungie Deploys Destiny Beta Codes for PS4

PSN Offline for Some as Bungie Deploys Destiny Beta Codes for PS4

What the heck does 'E-820001F7' mean?

We’ve been sat waiting for our Destiny beta code to appear all day, so it’s not exactly surprising that the PlayStation Network has collapsed mere moments after the first batch have gone out. Sony’s online status page notes that it’s “currently experiencing high volume and users may experience issues...

Weirdness: Beat the Heat with Media Molecule's Innovative Arctic Facebreeze

Beat the Heat with Media Molecule's Innovative Arctic Facebreeze

#Coolvolution

The downright debilitating temperatures here in the UK are showing no signs of coming to an end – just like the current video game drought. Seemingly discontent with both the weather and the absolute dearth of industry news, Sony first-party Media Molecule has announced its latest innovation: Arctic Facebreeze. This is a real doozy,...

Globe Trotting Uncharted Movie to Start Production 'Very Early Next Year'

"It's going to honour the mythology of the game"

Nathan Drake’s big screen debut is very much back on track, with production set to start early next year. The cinematic adaptation of Naughty Dog’s blockbuster Uncharted brand has been on and off more times than a hazard light over the past few years, but director Seth Gordon – who’s known...

Hooah! Call of Duty Reloads with Explosive PS4, PS3, and Vita Discounts

Oscar mike

Call of Duty is a series that rarely ever goes on sale, so you should thank the war economy for these savings. Spanning various instalments across all three PlayStation platforms, these discounts encompass pretty much the entire property – well, aside from brand black sheep Call of Duty: World at War anyway. Honestly, there have been...

Already Own The Last of Us? You Won't Be Getting a Discount to Upgrade to PS4

At least you know it's not a hack job

You didn’t think that we were going to sign off without one final The Last of Us Remastered story, did you? As part of today’s big blowout, Sony has confirmed that there’ll be no discount for existing owners of Naughty Dog’s survival horror opus looking to upgrade to the PlayStation 4 version – despite...

Vibrant Vita Brawler Phantom Breaker: Battle Grounds Picks a Fight with Western Territories

Girl power

There’s enough doom on Planet PlayStation Vita to keep id Software in business until the sun implodes, but that doesn’t mean that the handheld is dead yet. In fact, 5pb has quietly announced that the system’s mere days away from receiving a secret smash: pixelated punch-‘em-up Phantom Breaker: Battle Grounds. Originally...

Talking Point: Why PS4's Christmas Offering Is Much Cleverer Than You Think

Why PS4's Christmas Offering Is Much Cleverer Than You Think

An excellent excuse

We’ve written so much about the PlayStation 4’s holiday lineup that we’re beginning to sound a little bit like a Skrillex record that has bass drops so heavy that the needle gets caught in its cavernous grooves. Much like the PlayStation 3 before it, there’s a narrative developing that Sony’s next-gen super machine is...

Review: The Ratchet & Clank Trilogy (PlayStation Vita)

The Ratchet & Clank Trilogy (PlayStation Vita)

Screw loose

If the well of original PlayStation Vita content is drying up, then its fountain of high-definition re-releases is overflowing. The Ratchet & Clank Trilogy is the latest in a long line of PlayStation 2 compilations to nonchalantly sidle onto Sony’s struggling handheld system, following closely in the slipstream of the God of War...

Store Update: 16th July 2014 (Europe)

16th July 2014 (Europe)

Something good

Much like its North American counterpart, this week’s European PlayStation Store update has a nice summer feel; in other words, there’s so little on offer that you may actually be forced to head outside and enjoy the warm weather. If that’s a frightening prospect for you, there are a few worthwhile additions this week, including...

Yes, Dark Souls II Is Getting DLC, and Yes, You Are Probably Going to Die a Lot

It does look gorgeous, though

If trudging all the way through Dark Souls II wasn't enough pain for you, and you feel the burning desire to indulge in yet more masochistic torture, never fear, as new details have emerged regarding From Software's plans for the title's DLC. Most notably, the developer released a slew of screenshots for the first part...

Who Would Win Wednesdays: Teddie vs. Kuma

Teddie vs. Kuma

Round 21

Ah, good old Who Would Win Wednesdays – a feature where we pit two PlayStation personalities against each other and ask you how you think that the battle would unfold. Last time around, we had our first ever group match between the Payday Gang and the GTA V Gang. Perhaps surprisingly, it turned out to be an incredibly close contest, but...

Store Update: 15th July 2014 (North America)

15th July 2014 (North America)

Bloodlust

We hope that you haven’t cleared your backlog yet, because there’s not a whole lot to get excited about in this week’s North American PlayStation Store update. Gory twin-stick shooter Crimsonland is arguably the most noteworthy addition, while artsy sidescroller Abyss Odyssey is also up for grabs. We’re convinced that the latter...

The Last of Us Remastered Will Replenish PS4's Stamina with More Add-Ons

DualShock 4's light bar will have a part to play

As we’ve already established, The Last of Us Remastered is not your ordinary re-release. Not only has the port been handled internally by award-winning developer Naughty Dog, but it’s also arguably the most important PlayStation 4 exclusive of the year. As such, it’s no surprise to see the...
