Ever Wanted to Know Why You Can't Change Your PSN Name?

Shawn Layden to the rescue

The inability of PlayStation Network users to change their online names is undoubtedly one of the most philosophically important dilemmas of the modern age. It feels like a strange and slightly archaic policy, whichever way you slice it. Thankfully, in a recent interview, SCEA president Shawn 'E3 Yawn' Layden explained...

Grand Theft Auto V PS4's Launch Patch Will Steal a Load of Your Bandwidth

Hand it over

Very few retailers seem to abide by street dates these days, so it’s no surprise to see Grand Theft Auto V’s next-gen port already being streamed around the web. This early access means that information about the game is also beginning to trickle out – including details about the size of its day one patch. According to an image...

Assassin's Creed Unity PS4 Patch Squashes Several Big Bugs

No improvements to performance, though

It occurred to us earlier this evening that Ubisoft could, in theory, blame Assassin’s Creed Unity’s various bugs and glitches on a fault in the Animus – providing it with the perfect plot device to explain away the title’s terrible launch. Fortunately, the French firm isn’t doing that, and is instead...

What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 46

Everybody loves good Neighbours

We’re in the eye of the storm. Next week marks the release of the last few big holiday titles, and then it’s back to relative silence until the New Year. As such, this is another condensed issue of WAYP from our staff’s point of view – but we bet that you’ve got lots to talk about in the comments section...

Evolution Studios Prepares Free Apologetic DriveClub DLC

PS4 exclusive's Season Pass extended

When a game launch goes as badly as DriveClub, the best that a developer can do is try to atone for the problems as diligently and as quickly as possible. While we’d perhaps argue that Evolution Studios shouldn’t be in this position in the first place, at least it’s trying to make things up to its fans. And...

Happy Birthday to You, PlayStation 4

Party like it's your birthday

Apparently, today marks the anniversary of the PlayStation 4’s release in North America, which means that you should probably take a moment to toast your super system – all to the backdrop of 50 Cent’s infectious In Da Club. Seriously, though, has it really been a year already? This particular author

Aiming for 1080p and 60fps

If you thought that 2014 couldn't possibly fit another PlayStation 4 beta, MMO shooter Planetside 2 is here to prove you wrong. Speaking with Eurogamer.net, the game's creative director Matt Higby confirmed that a test will be hitting the super system by the end of the year. As for the title itself, Higby said his team is...

Grand Theft Auto V Heists to Raid PS4, PS3 Following Next-Gen Launch

Daylight robbery

Well, it may have taken an incredible seven months, but Grand Theft Auto V’s online multiplayer mode will finally be getting its hotly anticipated Heists shortly after the title’s PlayStation 4 release. Don’t worry if you’re sticking with the PlayStation 3 version of the game, as both of Sony’s systems will be furnished...

Forget Assassin's Creed, Alien: Isolation's Recent Patch Causes Game Breaking Bugs

Oh dear

When it comes to video game glitches, it never rains, but it pours. No doubt you've already seen the David Lynch-inspired monstrosities pouring out of the recently released bug-fest Assassin's Creed: Unity. Well, now reports are emerging that the PlayStation 4 version of Alien: Isolation is experiencing some glitches of its own – albeit of...

Is This Gaming's Most Disappointing Ever Year?

Down for the count

If this is next-gen, then we wished that greatness would have waited until it was ready. We were going to pen this article a little later in the month – the release schedule is still stacked with several other blockbuster titles – but with the Assassin’s Creed Unity saga still a sour taste on the industry’s lips, we’ve...

Ubisoft's Aware That Arno Can Fall Through the Floor in Assassin's Creed Unity on PS4

Animus issues

Assassin’s Creed Unity is busted. You can play the game, for sure – but it’s not a particularly pleasant experience a lot of the time. If our ghastly glitches roundup didn’t already get that point across, then know that during a co-op session with associate editor Robert Ramsey last night, this author’s game slipped into a...

PlayStation Vue Is Sony's Very Own TV, TV, TV Service

Fuses live, on-demand, and catch-up television

It’s been rumoured for what feels like an eternity, but Sony has finally officially unveiled PlayStation Vue today – a cloud-based television service which will allow you to cut the cord on your cable or satellite box, and watch live or on-demand content on your PlayStation 4 or PlayStation 3. A...

Four of Assassin's Creed Unity's Most Gloriously Ghastly PS4 Glitches

Temp scar

No one deserves to be singled out for their appearance, and Ubisoft clearly believes passionately in that sentiment. Recognising that the Hunchback of Notre Dame has been persecuted for centuries based on his unusual exterior, the French firm has decided that the ugly individual deserves some company – and so these Assassin’s Creed...

12th November 2014 (Europe)

Angry Murray

Costume Quest 2 has arrived just in time for Hallowe’en – on the PlayStation 3 at least. Sigh. Double Fine’s dress-‘em-up is just one of many delayed releases to deploy on the European PlayStation Store this week, with Nidhogg and Pier Solar HD also on the menu. Assassin’s Creed Unity is the obvious highlight, but this...

Black Friday PS4 Bundles Leaked at Walmart, Best Buy, Target

Deals of the decade

We can now probably safely assume that Sony’s big Black Friday push in the United States will revolve around Grand Theft Auto V and The Last of Us: Remastered.
