A different direction

Very few people earnestly enjoy change. This author gets the jitters if Chart-Track’s weekly UK sales data isn’t ready to write about first thing on a Monday morning, and don’t even mention routine rupturing Bank Holidays. It was little wonder, then, that the web was awash with cynicism last year when Nintendo opted to...

Batman: Arkham Knight's Little Details the Focus of Developer Rocksteady's Detective Vision

Obsessive compulsive detective

July's PlayStation Plus PS4 Freebies May include Strider and TowerFall Ascension

Destiny's Extra PS4 and PS3 Content Will Only Be Exclusive Till Next Year

Jumping jive

Timed exclusive content is a lot like the lottery: it's a constant source of bitterness, until you're on the receiving end. So, it's with great care that we report on recent rumours that the promised extra features on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 for hotly anticipated shooter Destiny will only be exclusive until next year. According...

You'll Play as This Trendy Man in PS4 Shooter Far Cry 4

Just your average psychopath

Protagonists often play a big part in new game announcements, but it’s perhaps telling that Ubisoft has opted to wait until after Far Cry 4’s big coming out party to introduce you to Ajay Ghale – the character that you’ll be playing as in the forthcoming PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 first-person shooter...

PS4 Stock Situation Has Prompted Lost Sales, Sony Laments

Console's still selling very well, though

No one could accuse the PlayStation 4 of getting off to a slow start.
