  • Poll Are You Happy with July 2017's Free PlayStation Plus Games?

    Hit or miss?

    If you look back on the lineup for 2017 so far, PlayStation Plus has been pretty strong. Okay, so it’s still falling short of those PlayStation 3 glory years, but there’s been a decent mix of some very good games. And July 2017 is looking like the best lineup yet, with excellent PlayStation 4 exclusive Until Dawn the standout game...

  • News PSN Accounts Struck by Mass PayPal Chargeback

    Here's how you can find out if you're affected

    PayPal has launched a mass chargeback on what’s purported to be “thousands” of PlayStation Network transactions, putting many accounts in danger. The cause of the returned payments is unclear, but it means that many profiles are now technically in “debt”, which typically triggers Sony’s...

  • Japanese Sales Charts PS4 Back on Top with Several New Releases

    Final Fantasy XIV targets software summit

    The low stock Nintendo Switch situation has opened the door for the PlayStation 4 to return to the top of the Japanese hardware charts – albeit with relatively unimpressive figures all told. Combined sales of the PS4 Slim and PS4 Pro propelled Sony’s console back to the summit, with several lower-profile...

  • News July 2017 PlayStation Plus Games Announced

    And it's a phenomenal one

    The big PlayStation Plus update for July 2017 is in – and it’s an outstanding month. The headliner this time is Until Dawn, one of the best exclusives released on the PlayStation 4 to date, and a must-play if you haven’t tried it already.

  • Store Update 27th June 2017 (Europe)

    Crash bash

    This week plots the return of a PlayStation icon: Micro Machines. Oh alright, while World Series from Codemasters looks promising, we’re obviously referring to Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy. This is actually a crazy week for new releases, with Valkyria Revolution, The Golf Club 2, and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered all vying...

  • UK Sales Charts Gran Theft Auto V Steals Back Top Spot

    You're a Rockstar

    There’s just no stopping Grand Theft Auto V, which has robbed back the UK sales charts summit for the 13th time since its release. To be fair, this was a very slow week, with Dead by Daylight being the best new arrival in 16th position. Final Fantasy XIV: Stormblood debuted in 23rd place, and that’s all she wrote really. The...

  • Talking Point What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 174

    Feet up

    E3 2017 is a distant memory and the temperatures have dipped to a somewhat more agreeable level (at least here in the UK, anyway) so it’s time to settle down for some serious gaming. With the release schedule slowly starting to thin ahead of the summer months, we have the distinct feeling that backlogs are going to take centre stage over...

  • Japanese Sales Charts All's Quiet on the PlayStation Front

    Summertime snoozefest

    Bad news if you thought the Japanese sales charts were about to get interesting, because for the millionth week running, there's bugger all happening as far as PlayStation's concerned. There are no new PlayStation 4 releases in the top 20, with Tekken 7 the only current-gen release remaining in the top five. Bandai Namco's...

    Injustice 2 leads software chart

    After being overthrown by the Nintendo Switch for a couple of months, stock shortages have opened the door and allowed the PlayStation 4 to reclaim its crown at the summit of the United States hardware charts.

  • Talking Point What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 173

    Post-show play sesssions

The summer months may be in full swing, but the PlayStation 4 gaming calendar ain’t looking any quieter. Here’s what we’re playing this weekened. Robert Ramsey, Associate Editor: After weeks of...

  • Podcast Episode 26 - Was E3 2017 a Show to Remember?

    Or has the game changed?

    Somehow it's E3 again, which apparently means all the news about video games!

While we touch on stuff seen...

  • Japanese Sales Charts Read the E3 2017 News Instead

    Another slow week

    The Japanese sales charts are out, and as has been the case for several weeks now, there’s naff all going on apart from the Nintendo Switch getting a trickle of stock. PlayStation 4 sales are in the gutter, but it’s just a dry spell for the entire industry at the moment; expect sales to perk up across the board when Dragon...

  • Japanese Sales Charts Tekken 7 Juggles Its Way to Number 1

    Tekken it higher

    Well, there's only one worthwhile story to extract from the latest Japanese sales charts. Soaring straight to the top of the software list, Tekken 7 shifted 58,736 copies on PlayStation 4 during its debut. Certainly not an amount worth shouting about, but it's worth remembering that the series has traditionally moved more units in...
