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. This PlayStation 4 reimagining by Polish developer Flying Wild Hog, however, aims to drag the original into the next generation – without forgetting any of the late 90s tropes that...

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...

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...

The First of November's Free PS4 PlayStation Plus Games Won't Appeal to Everyone

Dry your eyes

They’ve not all been great, but we’ve really enjoyed a lot of the free titles made available through PlayStation Plus on the PlayStation 4. The likes of Velocity 2X, Pix the Cat, and Outlast are all outstanding games – and they’re titles that this editor would have purchased anyway if Sony hadn’t had the good grace to throw...

You'll Be Able to Play Dead or Alive 5 for Free on PS4

Complimentary combat

Dead or Alive 5 is a bit like one of those adult hotlines: expensive but strangely enjoyable. With more downloadable costumes than an Ann Summers storeroom, Koei Tecmo has announced that a free version of PlayStation 4 port Dead or Alive 5: Last Round will release on Sony’s next-gen system. Much like the PlayStation 3’s...

Oh Sony, Did You Really Have to Use Sunset Overdrive's Font for Your Sale?

Ratchet and clanger

Someone may want to get SCEA boss Shawn Layden on the blower, as Sony appears to have forgotten that Insomniac Games is working for the guys in green these days. The platform holder launched the first instalment in its Hallowe’en sale earlier today – and acknowledged the occasion with an image employing Xbox One exclusive...

21st October 2014 (North America)

Bring the bleat back

Have mercy upon us, great gaming gods, for we cannot cope with the software overload that you’re subjecting us to. This week’s North American PlayStation Store update may be light on heavy hitters, but it more than makes up for any shortcomings in sheer girth. Highlights include Samurai Warriors 4, The Legend of Korra, and

Great British Bust Off

If asparagus is an aphrodisiac, then Marvelous must have been chomping down the spring vegetable by the plateful when it conceived Senran Kagura Bon Appétit!. More or less Cooking Mama with ninja chefs, this rhythmic PlayStation Vita release sees you matching button inputs in order prepare a delicious dish for the depraved...

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Will Hold a Hefty Hunk of Your PS4's Hard Drive Hostage

You'll need lots of Spacey

The PlayStation 4 may come packed with 500GB of internal storage, but if you're like us, and enjoy indulging in as many games as possible, this probably isn't enough room. Joining a recent cavalcade of absurdly large downloads, Call of Duty's latest annual outing will hold approximately 43GB of your PS4's hard drive space...

Wild Season Is the PS4 and Vita Harvest Moon That You've Been Hankering For

Farmyard fun

We love shooting space marines in the cranium as much as the next gamer, but sometimes we need a little respite. Quickfire Games hopes to serve up just that with Wild Season, an agricultural adventure due out on the PlayStation 4 and Vita in 2015. Inspired by the likes of Harvest Moon, the title will see you assume the role of a...

Choo choo

Are those the screeching wheels of an approaching hype train that we can hear on the horizon? We’ve attempted to play down Sony’s impending PlayStation Experience event – after all, excitement often leads to bitter disappointment – but SCEA chief Scott Rohde doesn’t appear to be on the same page as us. Speaking on the latest...

Will Tom Clancy's The Division Deliver on the PS4?

Massive expectations

Ubisoft sure knows how to make a splash. Tom Clancy’s The Division, much like Watch Dogs before it, dropped jaws at E3 2013, when it was announced for the PlayStation 4. The game – an open world third-person shooter with strong role-playing influences – not only promised to drag the industry into the next generation with...
