Grand Theft Auto V PS4 Reviews Extort Super High Scores

Franklin amazing

We already know that Grand Theft Auto V is amazing, so there was never any real danger of it deploying on the PlayStation 4 with poor review scores – unless, of course, it winded up being broken like every other major next-gen launch of late.

UK Sales Charts: Assassin's Creed Unity Sails Past Black Flag's Launch Sales

Advanced Warfare still on top

There’s a great game in Assassin’s Creed Unity, but it’s obfuscated by bad bugs and glitches. To be fair, Ubisoft is working hard to fix things, and that’s already resulted in one major PlayStation 4 patch. However, upper-management won’t be too worried about the backlash to the game, as it’s outsold the...

Grand Theft Auto V’s pre-load has gone live on the PlayStation 4 prior to the re-release’s launch next week, but a handful of users are complaining about problems tied to the early download.

Ever Wanted to Know Why You Can't Change Your PSN Name?

Shawn Layden to the rescue

The inability of PlayStation Network users to change their online names is undoubtedly one of the most philosophically important dilemmas of the modern age.

Assassin's Creed Unity PS4 Patch Squashes Several Big Bugs

No improvements to performance, though

It occurred to us earlier this evening that Ubisoft could, in theory, blame Assassin’s Creed Unity’s various bugs and glitches on a fault in the Animus – providing it with the perfect plot device to explain away the title’s terrible launch.
