Media Molecule Hoping to Reveal Major PS4 Game in 2015

"The silence is killing me"

Media Molecule's papery Vita port Tearaway Unfolded may be its only officially announced PlayStation 4 project, but it's been busy working on a second title ever since the release of LittleBigPlanet 2 some time ago.

Precious

2014's Game of the Year winner perhaps comes as a surprise, given that we weren't all that confident in its success when it was originally unveiled.

2014's Most Memorable PlayStation Music

Sounds good

The music that we hear in games plays an integral part in our enjoyment of the experience.
