Final Fantasy XIV's Fantastic PS4 Theme Is Now Available and Free in Europe

A theme reborn

The PlayStation 4 doesn't have a great selection of themes. The official Destiny one isn't too bad, and there are a couple of other additions to the PlayStation Store that are nice enough, but there's nothing available that we'd consider essential downloads. That's changed today, however, as the fantastic Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm...

Are There Any Remasters You Still Want to See on PS4?

Harder, better, faster, stronger

“Oh dear, are they talking about remastered games again?" we hear you scream. “I want new games, not remasters!" Don't worry – we hear you. In truth, we'd be the first to admit that we're a bit sick of learning about last-gen re-releases – but we'd also be lying if we said that we've truly had our fill of...

UK Sales Charts: There Ain't Nothing to See Here

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare back on top

Dying Light should, by right, have given the UK sales charts a bit of shake up this week, but seeing as it only released digitally in Europe last Wednesday, brace yourselves for a familiar top ten. Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare did manage to strong arm Grand Theft Auto V from the summit, following a...

Just looking at the engagement on our articles, you guys really want a new Crash Bandicoot for the Japanese giant's next-gen machine, but that's locked behind various legal tangles.

Fighting Game Champs Duke It Out in PS4 Console Exclusive Street Fighter V

Ken you feel the hype?

Street Fighter V is clearly a long way away from being finished, but Capcom is taking an interesting approach with the game, allowing pros to get hands-on time with an early version of the sequel – before presumably grilling them for feedback thereafter.

The Witcher 3 Will Likely Carve Out a Considerable Chunk of Your PS4's Hard Drive

Not quite witchcraft

One of the biggest complaints people have with the PlayStation 4 is that even when you grab a physical copy of a game, your console's hard drive is still going to take a beating thanks to sometimes massive data install sizes, and it looks like that isn't about to change any time soon. Indeed, if you haven't swapped out your...

What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 54

Every day and night, babe

Ah, the weekend – that pleasant period of the week where we get to hang up our work clothes, and sit around playing games in our pants. Oh, and when we say 'pants', we mean the British definition of the word, and not the oddball American meaning. Is that enough padding for this opening paragraph? Yeah, looks good –...

Metal Gear Rising to Serve Up a Second Dose of Revengeance on PS4?

Raiden you wait and see?

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance may have been borderline incomprehensible at points – seriously, what the heck happened during that final boss fight? – but it was yet another outstanding action game from Japanese developer Platinum Games. And, during the Taipei Game Show overnight, Sony has hinted that a sequel to the...

Bloodborne's PS4 Bundle Will Inaugurate Newcomers

Cry baby

If you've ever tried out for a college or university sports team, then you'll know a thing or two about the inauguration process – namely that it separates the men from the boys. And we like to think of this forthcoming Bloodborne bundle in a similar way, as it should introduce PlayStation 4 newcomers to the world of next-gen with a bit...

With the output of developer Telltale Games starting to get a teensy bit predictable, though, we're really curious to see French developer DONTNOD's take on the format. We've got a reviewer whizzing through episode...
