    Stop press

    While the big stories of 2013 are looming larger than a professional basketball player, we’re still not quite finished looking to the past.

  • Feature The Twelve Stories That Shook PlayStation in 2012 - Part One

    On the Richter scale

    If you’re reading this then you successfully survived the Mayan’s reported apocalyptic prediction, Christmas dinner, and yet another lousy New Year’s Eve party.

    Hit discs

    Pocket rockets

    Motion in the ocean

    With new console launches hogging the headlines harder than Kristen Stewart and Harry Styles, the PlayStation Move was pushed to the sidelines slightly in 2012. But while the motion peripheral may have been left howling for attention louder than a member of The Wanted, it still managed to muster a selection box of software worth...

  • Game of the Year Best PlayStation Minis Game of 2012

    Mini marvels

    If this year proves to be the last for Sony’s short-lived PlayStation Minis initiative, then at least the platform holder can boast that the service bowed out with a bang. Sure, the selection of bite-sized blockbusters may have struggled to fill the bottom layer of a cheap box of chocolates, but slim pickings are satisfactory when...
