Blizzard Sounds the Klaxon on Overwatch Olympics Outfits

Ready, steady, go

We wondered when the Rio 2016 Olympic Games were going to cameo in a game – and we're not referring to a certain potty-mouthed Wii U release.

B-A-N-A-N-A-S

As the great Gwen Stefani once sang: "This s*it is bananas. B-A-N-A-N-A-S." And we suppose that Ape Escape 2 is a bit bananas, seeing as it sees you attempt to scoop up monkeys with a futuristic fishing net. The second game in the series launched on the PlayStation 4 last night as part of Sony's PS2 Classics initiative, where it will...

With the school holidays underway, Sony's pumped a ton more cash into Uncharted 4: A Thief's End here in the UK, widely advertising a special price promotion.
