Sony's Considering a European PlayStation Experience Event

PS I Love EU

PlayStation Experience has been an enormous success. The first event was more of an experiment really, but it went from strength-to-strength in 2015, suggesting that the US version will return again in December.

Koei Tecmo's Berserk Game Won't Get an 18+ Rating

Bloody hell

Let's face it, Koei Tecmo isn't known for dabbling in overly violent or decidedly mature games, so it's no wonder that Berserk fans have been pondering the publisher's position on Berserk, the upcoming action title that's based on the manga and anime property.

PS4 Firmware Update 3.55 Doesn't Appear to Do Much

Oh well

PlayStation 4 firmware update v3.55 is available now, but it probably doesn't do much.

Perhaps it may pave the way for the eventual...
