  • News PlayStation Plus October Includes Resident Evil and Transformers on PS4

    That's more like it

    October looks to be a really solid month for PlayStation Plus. Sony has revealed that subscribers will be getting Resident Evil and Transformers: Devastation on PlayStation 4 - that's two great games right off the bat for the current-gen console. Elsewhere, the Vita selection includes interesting indie Actual Sunlight and...

  • Japanese Sales Charts PS4 Tops Hardware as Lifetime Numbers Pass Wii U

    Up and over

    Following the PlayStation 4's emphatic return to the top of the charts thanks to the introduction of the new Slim model, Sony's current-gen console hit another milestone last week when it surpassed the Wii U's lifetime sales in Japan. To date, Nintendo's console has shifted 3,265,329 units, while the PS4 has now sold through 3,267,243...

  • News Former Sony Exec Jack Tretton Details What Went Wrong with the PS3's Launch

    "The most difficult launch you could imagine"

    Briefly thinking back to past Sony press conferences, it's hard not to miss Jack Tretton and his cheeky little smile. The former president and CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment America, Tretton left the company in 2014, but that hasn't stopped him from talking about the PlayStation 3 and its troubled...

  • Store Update 27th September 2016 (North America)

    Really Reus

    There's no breakout of every version of FIFA 17 in this week's North American PlayStation Store update, so it looks positively teensy compared to its European counterpart. Darkest Dungeon and XCOM 2 are pretty big releases, though. Decent restock, we reckon. PS4 Games: ARCADE ARCHIVES CONTRA $7.99 DARKEST DUNGEON (CROSS-BUY) $24.99...

  • Store Update 27th September 2016 (Europe)

    Back of the net

    Stock up on baked beans, say goodbye to your loved ones, plump your favourite cushion – the Christmas rush is here. Well, technically not quite actually. Don't get us wrong, this is a busy European PlayStation Store update, but it's padded by about a billion different versions of FIFA 17, which makes it look larger than it is. PS4...

  • UK Sales Charts BioShock: The Collection Is Still the Big Daddy

    Ayn achievement

    A lack of new releases mean that BioShock: The Collection maintained its place at the summit of the UK sales charts this week, fending off PES 2017: Pro Evolution Soccer for a second term. Destiny: The Collection was the only new entry in fourth, with most fans of that series locked into the PlayStation Store these days. Overwatch...

  • Talking Point What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 136

    Short and sweet

    We're on location this week, so you're getting the shortest WAYP in the history of the feature. That's okay, though, because we're sure that you'll have ample insight to stack into the comments. You know the drill: let us know what you're playing down below. Jacob Hull, Reviewer: It's a Premier League weekend, so just you try and...

  • Talking Point What October PlayStation Plus Games Do You Want?

    Free the freebies

    The price has gone up in North America, but few could be disappointed with September 2016's selection of free PlayStation Plus games. Between the excellent Journey and the agreeable Lords of the Fallen, the PlayStation 4 alone played host to two really worthwhile downloads last time out. But now it's time to starting thinking...

  • Reminder PlayStation Plus Prices Increase in North America Tomorrow

    You've been warned

    A friendly reminder for all of you with active PlayStation Plus subscriptions: the price of the service will increase in the United States and Canada starting tomorrow. You won't be charged any extra money until your membership lapses, but we figured that it was worth positing a subtle reminder should you be due to be charged...

  • Japanese Sales Charts PS4 Numbers Skyrocket Thanks to Slim Release and Persona 5

    That's more like it

    Remember last week when we speculated that the PlayStation 4 would probably jump back to around the 20,000 mark and continue to stay there? Well, it turns out that we underestimated the Power of PlayStation, as it were. With the help of the newly released Slim model, sales of Sony's current-gen console absolutely skyrocketed,...

  • News Persona 5 Is the Fastest Selling Persona Game in 20 Years

    Tops latest Japanese charts on PS4

    Persona 5's opening week sales are in, and they're looking pretty good - especially if you're a company named Atlus. The highly anticipated title, which launched in Japan on the 15th September, topped the country's latest software charts on PlayStation 4, while second place was snatched up by the PlayStation 3...

  • Store Update 20th September 2016 (North America)

    Iron-ic

    Time to trade in all of your Strange Coins for Destiny: Rise of Iron – if only they were a legitimate currency, eh? Those of you not obsessed with Bungie's latest will probably want to know what else is on offer this week, with Dear Esther: Landmark Edition and The Bunker being obvious choices. PS4 Games: Dear Esther Landmark...

  • Store Update 20th September 2016 (Europe)

    Your Destiny

    Destiny: Rise of Iron takes top billing on the European PlayStation Store this week, bringing ample incentive for you to return to Bungie's sci-fi universe. It's been joined by a bunch of lower-profile titles, including Dear Esther, The Bunker, and Virginia – all of which are at the very least worth a look. PS4 Games: TRIALS OF THE...

  • UK Sales Charts BioShock: The Collection Gets Wet at the Summit

    Splicer to see you, to see you Splicer

    2K Games asked you to kindly purchase BioShock: The Collection on the PlayStation 4, and you responded diligently, with the title topping the all-formats charts in the UK this week. The critically acclaimed PES 2017: Pro Evolution Soccer kicked off in second, and scored over 70 per cent of its sales on Sony's...

  • Talking Point What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 135

    Iron rising

    The nights are drawing in and the skies have turned a subtle shade of grey; the summer's officially over and it's time to start thinking about investing in a new woolly jumper or three. The good news is that while the sun goes on annual leave, games are beginning to release, and while we're not quite in the thick of the silly season just...

  • News August 2016 NPD: Madden NFL 17, No Man's Sky Top Software Charts

    Hello, games

    Oh look, it's the NPD report. You may have noticed that we skipped coverage of this over the past couple of months. Apologies for that, but the NPD has changed the way it makes this information available. We used to get platform ordering for software sales and all sorts of other intel, but that can only be accessed by paying members...

  • News Download All of Battlefield 4's Expansions Free on PS4

    Get all five packs without paying a penny

    Battlefield 4's been on sale for some stupidly low prices on the PlayStation Store lately, and if you want to really take advantage of the title's deep discounts, then you'll probably want to nab all of its DLC for free. EA has made all five (!) of the outing's expansions complimentary on the PlayStation 4...

  • Japanese Sales Charts PS4 Hits Rock Bottom as Slim Approaches

    One more time

    The PlayStation 4 Slim launches tomorrow in Japan alongside Persona 5, meaning that regular PlayStation 4 sales have fallen off a cliff. The current-gen console managed to shift just 560 units last week, with the PlayStation 3 actually selling more than double that. All eyes are now on next Wednesday's charts, as they'll feature the...

  • Store Update 13th September 2016 (North America)

    Rapturous

    Whoops, we're a little bit late with this – would you kindly read it anyway? Remasters rule the roost in this week's North American PlayStation Store update, with BioShock: The Collection and the trio of Dead Rising titles taking top billing. There's also a new PS2 Classic in the form of Hot Shots Tennis. PS4 Games: BIOSHOCK: THE...

  • Store Update 13th September 2016 (Europe)

    To the hockey

    So many PlayStation 4 games. Although, to be fair, this week's European PlayStation Store update is padded by à la carte remaster compilations and about a billion different versions of NHL 17. Does anyone even want the standard version on this side of the Atlantic? PS4 Games: EA Sports FIFA 17 demo 13th September Dead Rising Triple...

  • UK Sales Charts Overwatch Is Still Unbeatable as Uncharted Stretches Its Legs

    Tracer on top

    Sony must be really, really satisfied with Uncharted 4: A Thief's End. The game's been a constant in the UK top ten since its release, and it's remained in seventh this week. No Man's Sky, another first-party game, is also doing incredibly well for itself – despite the poor word of mouth. It's finished up in eighth this week. But...

  • Game of the Month Top 4 PlayStation Games of August 2016

    Robot limbs, scary dogs, virtual girls, and fish

    See, this is what happens when you remember to organise the staff Game of the Month vote too early. Your humble host put the internal poll together before September had even begun, and now here we are, over a week later, and the damn article is only just being written. Still, we can at least push...

  • Talking Point What Are You Playing This Weekend - Issue 134

    The waiting game

    Wow, 134 issues of What Are You Playing and this is maybe... The third or fourth time that Overlord Barker hasn't put it together? That's some dedication right there, but enough waffling - it's time to find out what we're going to be playing on this rather grey but warm UK weekend. Robert Ramsey, Associate Editor: It's taken me...

  • Japanese Sales Charts PS4 Flatlines as Slim Model Nears

    The Witcher 3's back, though

    As you'd expect, PlayStation 4 sales are plummeting in Japan ahead of the Slim's imminent arrival. Sony's system sold through just 1828 units last week as the standard PS4 model is slowly phased out to make room for its sleeker sibling. Meanwhile, on the software side of things, there's no really too much to see. The...
