It's about Clemen-time

The Walking Dead has seemingly been shambling onto the PlayStation 4 for months now.

What Do the PlayStation Vita's First Themes Look Like?

Suits you, sir

Unlike the PlayStation 4, the PlayStation Vita has always been relatively customisable. Straight out of the box, Sony allowed you to personalise the platform’s bubbly user interface with different colours and pictures – but that functionality’s evolved today. As part of the portable’s v3.30 firmware update, the company has...

Sony: The Last Guardian Development Couldn't Be Better

"That might be a bit of an exaggeration"

The boys are back in town

Phew, we just about managed to catch this one. At 12PM BST, Square Enix will be live streaming an extended Tokyo Game Show presentation which will feature Final Fantasy XV and Final Fantasy Type 0 HD. Sounds good, doesn't it? The only problem, though, is that we're completely unsure how 'extended' the showing will actually...

What Do You Get in DriveClub: PS Plus Edition on PS4?

Fast and furious

DriveClub: PS Plus Edition is undoubtedly the highlight of October’s massive PlayStation Plus update, but you may be pondering what the free PlayStation 4 download actually includes.

1st October 2014 (Europe)

Wiped out

As is often the case, this week’s European PlayStation Store update isn’t quite as exciting as its North American counterpart. That doesn’t mean that there’s not a ton to look forward to, though, as Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor, Futuridium EP Deluxe, and Natural Doctrine all take centre stage. The full lin

Logitech left in the lurch

For the longest time PlayStation 4 racer DriveClub seemed like it would never release.

PlayStation Plus Members Will Be Able to Try Battlefield 4 for Free

Sadly, only on PS3

Perhaps in an attempt to claw back some potential consumers after Battlefield 4’s atrocious launch, EA Games has announced an initiative that will allow you to play the afflicted first-person shooter for free on the PlayStation 3 for a week in North America. This will provide you with access to the full game, including its...

Yes, the holiday rush has arrived. This week’s North American PlayStation Store update is so big, we’re not entirely sure if the online plaza will be able to cope with it all.

Antique action

Insomniac Games may have taken a half-step outside of the House of PlayStation, but Sony may have already found the studio’s replacement in Ready at Dawn.
