PS4 Firmware Update 2.00 Will Release on 28th October

Stability updates will inevitably follow

Sony said that it wanted to release PlayStation 4 firmware update v2.00 before the biggest games of the year, and it’s held true to that word.

Psyonix Targets the Top of the Rocket League

Rocket power

What is better than football, we hear you cry? Well, football with rocket-powered cars, of course. That's the basic premise of the fast-paced, action sports game Rocket League, currently ambiguously announced for "consoles" in Spring 2015. Coming a little while after the launch of Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars,...

The Unfinished Swan Picks Up Its Paintbrush on PS4 and Vita Next Week

Still not finished

The Unfinished Swan is one of those rare PlayStation 3 titles that scored a 10/10 on this very website – and if you missed out on it the first time around, you’ll be able to sample the imaginitive adventure on the PlayStation 4 and Vita next week.

Blimey, The Last of Us Is Getting a Game of the Year Edition for PS3

Talking Point: Do You Ever Stump Up for Season Passes?

Do You Ever Stump Up for Season Passes?

Chump change

The so-called Season Pass has become the latest way for publishers to extract even more money from cash strapped gamers. What started life as L.A. Noire’s largely innocuous Rockstar Pass – a pre-purchase for several additional cases in the sandbox detective game – has, much like the Online Pass that preceded it, evolved into an...

News: What's the Latest on PS4 Racer DriveClub's Online Issues?

What's the Latest on PS4 Racer DriveClub's Online Issues?

Stuck in first gear

While we don’t doubt that it’s doing everything that it possibly can, we worry that Evolution Studios may have taken a little too long to get DriveClub up and running as intended. Despite high expectations at the start of the month, interest in the PlayStation 4 exclusive racer has plummeted over the past few days –...

Round Up: Shadow Warrior PS4 Reviews Go for the Throat

Shadow Warrior PS4 Reviews Go for the Throat

Blades of steel

Shadow Warrior started life as a 3D Realms developed first-person shooter, so we can understand why your scepticism is already at an all time high.

Does LittleBigPlanet 3 Look Much Better on the PS4?

Simply thread

Considering that we keep conveniently ignoring it, you may have forgotten that LittleBigPlanet 3 is set to gad onto the PlayStation 3 next month, alongside the PlayStation 4. However, with two versions of the same game on store shelves, you may be curious if there are any differences between the duo. Honestly, the answer is not really...

Store Update: 22nd October 2014 (Europe)

22nd October 2014 (Europe)

Break the rules

The early bird always catches the worm, so we guess that we’ll be forced to feed on scraps for posting the European PlayStation Store update so darn late in the day. We’d blame the delay on traffic, but, well, that’s not strictly true. Either way, a rival saying states that you’re better late than never – and we happen to...

The Walking Dead Won't Be Stumbling onto PS4 for Another Week in Europe

The walking delay

You may recall that a few weeks ago Telltale Games' popular The Walking Dead series was finally confirmed to be releasing on the PlayStation 4 after a seemingly endless string of rumours. Well, erm, if you live in Europe, and were planning on spending your weekend playing your way through the title, we've got some bad news. The...
