Game of the Month: What Were the Best PlayStation Games of August 2015?

What Were the Best PlayStation Games of August 2015?

Dumb teenagers, space battles, pirates, and raptures

Time certainly flies, as evidenced by the fact that it's somehow September. Yeah, we don't understand it either, but we suppose that we have to go ahead and announce August's Game of the Month anyway. Leading steadily into the holiday rush that's about to hit Push Square Towers like a freight...

Store Update: 1st September 2015 (North America)

1st September 2015 (North America)

The phantom pain

Another week, another gigantic update on the North American PlayStation Store. Of course, you already knew that because we're a little late posting the content drop – but just in case you missed it, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is the highlight this time. It's not, by any stretch, the only game on the itinerary, though,...

1st September 2015 (Europe)

The drop

Kept you waiting, huh? Oh, we've already used that one? Alright, we'll quit recycling that quote and get to the point: Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is without doubt the biggest new arrival in this week's European PlayStation Store update. That should tell you a little about the magnitude of the sequel, as Mad Max, Grow Home, and Sup

London's Looking Lavely In Assassin's Creed Syndicate's Newest Gameplay Trailer

Mmmm, smog

Ah, London. An enjoyable city if you can withstand the crowds, the stinky public transport, and the complete lack of decent manners from anyone who isn't being paid in tips, and we dare say that it's looking rather fetching in Assassin's Creed Syndicate's latest arty trailer. Indeed, you can tell that we're getting closer to the game's...

Star Wars Battlefront Beta Soars to PS4 Next Month

In a galaxy not so far away

Can't wait for your first taste of Star Wars Battlefront? There's good news for you, then, because the first-person shooter will be landing a PlayStation 4 beta in early October. The developer's keeping many of the major details under wraps for the time being, but we do know that it'll feature three modes and will be...

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided's Getting Torn Apart for Its Ridiculous Pre-Order Strategy

YouTube trailers blasted

We feel a bit sorry for the team at Eidos Montreal - the studio behind Deus Ex: Mankind Divided. They're creating what looks to be another solid entry in the franchise, but the game's been overshadowed by its recently revealed pre-order strategy. For those that are out of the loop, publisher Square Enix is adopting a...

News: Here's Mad Max's Huge Open World Map From End to End

Here's Mad Max's Huge Open World Map From End to End

That's a lot of dust

Mad Max has had the misfortune of releasing on the same day as one of the most highly anticipated titles of 2015, and although we doubt that it'll be able to outperform Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain when it comes to sales, it still looks like a decent enough open world romp all the same. And, as with any game that's...

Journey's Getting a PS4 Collector's Edition Next Month

Chirp like you mean it

If you're yet to wrap yourself in some lovely robes and head out into the desert, you may well be interested in Journey: Collector's Edition, which is releasing next month on the 2nd October. Much like the PlayStation 3 version, the upcoming PlayStation 4 re-release will include Journey, Flower, and flOw. thatgamecompany's...

Dragon Ball XenoVerse 2 Probably Exists, But We Don't Think This Is Evidence

What does the scouter say?

So, according to the above image, which appeared on the forums of areajugones.es, Dragon Ball XenoVerse 2 is in the works, and it's releasing next year. The picture has already made the rounds on sites like NeoGAF, but we're sceptical to say the least. Now, while we think that a sequel to Dragon Ball XenoVerse is almost...

News: There's a Silent Hills Easter Egg in Metal Gear Solid 5

There's a Silent Hills Easter Egg in Metal Gear Solid 5

But of course

Once upon a time, before Konami imploded, Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima was working on Silent Hills in addition to The Phantom Pain. It makes sense, then, that there would be some references to the survival horror, and its PlayStation 4 playable teaser, in the open world espionage escapade. And our friend Arekkz Gaming has...

Japan's Getting Yet Another Limited Edition PS4

Fit for a prince

Adding to the copious amount of limited edition consoles already available in Japan is a newly announced Arslan: The Warriors of Legend PlayStation 4, which is based upon the upcoming hack and slash title from Dynasty Warriors developer Omega Force. Perhaps it's not worth getting too excited over, though, as the machine's simply...

Rumour: XCOM: Enemy Unknown Plus May Be Crash Landing on Vita

XCOM: Enemy Unknown Plus May Be Crash Landing on Vita

XCOM: Release date unknown

Strategy lovers rejoice, as the ESRB has recently passed down a 'mature' rating for XCOM: Enemy Unknown Plus on PlayStation Vita. The as yet unannounced game will presumably be a port of Firaxis Games' popular intergalactic strategy game. For our money, this type of title is exactly the sort of experience the system was...

Dragon's Dogma Online Proves to Be Hot Stuff in Japan at Launch

Forged in flame

Dragon's Dogma Online seems to have had a promising start in Japan, as it was reportedly downloaded over 700,000 times during its first day on the market. Impressive numbers for sure, but there are a few factors that we have to take into account before declaring it the next big thing in the Land of the Rising Sun. For starters,...

UK Sales Charts: Until Dawn Spooks the Second Spot

Shock scare

Considering ten days ago virtually everyone expected Until Dawn to flop, the Supermassive Games developed schlock horror has enjoyed something of a surprise turnaround. The game entered the UK sales charts this week in second, just one spot behind Gears of War: Ultimate Edition – which is obviously both cheaper and based upon an...

News: NUK3TOWN Returns in Call of Duty: Black Ops III on PS4

NUK3TOWN Returns in Call of Duty: Black Ops III on PS4

More like Puketown, eh?

We're not going to deny that Nuketown was one of the more memorable maps in Call of Duty: Black Ops, but is it really so good that it needs to be remade in each new Treyarch title? Well, the developer clearly thinks so, as it's announced that NUK3TOWN will be available with Call of Duty: Black Ops III pre-orders on the...

News: Activision Demands Your Milk Money with Deadpool PS4 Port

Activision Demands Your Milk Money with Deadpool PS4 Port

Dead cool?

Deadpool was never a particularly good game to begin with, but with a new movie on the horizon, Activision clearly sees value in re-releasing the ageing PlayStation 3 title on the PlayStation 4 – and its $49.99 asking price is the punch line. The title will be available on Sony's new-gen system from 17th November, according to a tweet...

Mad Max PS4 Reviews Hit the Highway

Wasteland or waste of space?

Mad Max has been in development so long that God of War II director Cory Barlog joined developer Avalanche Studios after the completion of the aforementioned PlayStation 2 sequel to work on it. He's since held various other roles in the industry, and not too long ago returned to Sony Santa Monica to work on some kind...

Uncharted 4: A Thief's End Will Get Story DLC on PS4

Drake's fortune

Much like The Last of Us before it, Uncharted 4: A Thief's End will get a story expansion. Buried in the game's release date reveal, Sony has confirmed that pre-orders for the Digital Deluxe Edition on the PlayStation Store will include access to the Uncharted 4 Triple Pack, which will include "future access to the first-ever,...

PS4 Exclusive Uncharted 4 Discovers a Confirmed Release Date and Snags a Collector's Edition

A thief's beginning

So much for a quiet bank holiday Monday here in the UK. Sony's gone ahead and announced a confirmed release date for upcoming blockbuster Uncharted 4: A Thief's End, as well as an obligatory collector's edition. Drake's latest will launch in both Europe and North America on the 18th March 2016 - which doesn't seem too far away...
