Yu Suzuki: I'm Ready to Create Shenmue III Should the Right Circumstances Arise

Veteran raring to go

Much like protagonist Ryo Hazuki’s neverending quest for revengeance, SEGA legend Yu Suzuki will seemingly never give up on the fight for Shenmue III. Asked yet again about the overdue sequel during an event in beautiful Barcelona last week, the Super Hang-On designer declared that he’s ready to make the game whenever the...

What the Heck Is a PocketStation?

Lifting the lid on Japan's best PlayStation accessory

Back in the mists of time, when Tamagotchi was still a thing and we were all wondering if SEGA’s Dreamcast was really going to turn things around for the ailing hardware company, Sony took the Sonic the Hedgehog maker's new Visual Memory Unit concept – a portable memory card with a built-in...

Shuhei Yoshida Doesn't Understand People Who Don't Like Indie Games

Neither do we

If the last two E3s are anything to go by, Sony's continued efforts to court indie developers are paying off. What's more, the Japanese giant seems pretty chuffed with this outcome, as Worldwide Studios president Shuhei Yoshida stated in a recent interview. "Almost every week you see an indie game coming out digitally on PS4. Some of...

One spicy meatball

Games bring all of the boys and girls to the PlayStation Store, and there’s plenty to look forward to as part of this week’s European refresh.

1st July 2014 (North America)

Quick, catch up

July has somehow already arrived with gusto – and Sony has deployed a brand new batch of PlayStation Store goodies to celebrate. Yes, we’re a little late with North America’s latest update, but sports organisers will insist on running the World Cup and Wimbledon at the same time. Thank heavens this only happens once every four...

This guy must be "Heavy Metal"

Koei Tecmo Europe was evil last week with its obvious tease of an upcoming announcement. Thankfully, we didn't have to wait long to find out that we were right on the mark and that Ar Nosurge: Ode to an Unborn Star will be seeing a physical and digital release for the PlayStation 3 in Europe on 26th September. While...

Just About Every Japanese Game You Can Think of Has Been Discounted in This Massive EU PSN Sale

Gifts from the East

Fancy nabbing some great Japanese games for your PlayStation 3 or Vita? Kicking off today in Europe, the PlayStation Store is discounting a frankly ridiculous amount of Eastern titles.

Talking Point: Should More Games Emulate PS4 Exclusive inFAMOUS: Second Son's Photo Mode?

Should More Games Emulate PS4 Exclusive inFAMOUS: Second Son's Photo Mode?

Say cheese

You could never accuse Seattle-based first-party studio Sucker Punch of not listening to its fans. Many berated the first entry in its superhero series inFAMOUS for the obnoxious personality of supporting star Zeke, and so it spent the entirety of the PlayStation 3 title’s sequel trying to redeem the character – a measure which...

This Is What Grand Theft Auto V Would Look Like in Real Life

As seen on PS3

The stars of Grand Theft Auto V may not be the most savoury people on the planet, but we’d be lying if we said that we didn’t want to step into their shoes for a day or two. It seems that Spanish filmmaker Zapruder Pictures had a similar temptation to masquerade as Michael, Franklin, and Trevor, too, as it’s put together this...

Are The Walking Dead and The Wolf Among Us Coming to PS4 Before Christmas?

It's about Clemen-time

You could never accuse Telltale Games of not working hard enough. The supremely talented developer, which recently announced Borderlands and Game of Thrones projects, is also bringing its two most popular zombie and werewolf themed franchises to the PlayStation 4. We were already aware of the ports, but new
