This Christmas Gift Is the PS4 Equivalent of Coal

Stone the crows

If you reckon that you had a rough Christmas trying to connect to the PlayStation Network, then spare a thought for Igor Baksht's poor 13-year-old niece, who almost received a box of rocks for the big day.

Season's Greetings from PlayStation's Premium Developers

They wish you a Merry Christmas

Christmas wouldn't be the same without more greetings cards than you know what to do with. Waltzing wintery streets with a square of cardboard that won't fit in your pocket is what the holidays are all about, so it kind of makes sense for game developers to acknowledge their fans with bits and pieces of custom art...

Blood Sport Is Probably the Worst Kickstarter Idea Ever

Bloody hell

It takes a special kind of Kickstarter campaign to make this author feel squeamish, but as your humble host taps out this story, let it be known that his skin has turned a subtle shade of green. Blood Sport is quite possibly the most mind bogglingly terrible idea in the history of crowd funding – and it’s no surprise that the drive...

There Are Only Ten of These Knack Statues in the World

Cerny you want one

Incredibly, it’s been a year since Knack first attacked the PlayStation 4 as a launch title – and in order to commemorate the occasion, Japan Studio has prepared ten ultra-rare statues, which will be given away at Sony’s forthcoming PlayStation Experience event. The trophy itself shows the titular hero standing alongside...

What if the PS4 Was a Really Nifty Laptop?

Forget your MacBook Air

There are people that don’t have much spare time – and others that have way too much. One such talented individual is Ed Zarick, a self-taught engineer who may have abnormal amounts of free time, but is at least putting it to good use. Having previously designed the Xbook – a portable Xbox 360 for those out of the...

This Woman Likes Silent Hill Way More Than You Do

No argument here

This particular author may be penning this article while proudly wearing a Pyramid Head t-shirt – we kid you not – but we’ll happily concede that there are much bigger Silent Hill fans in the world. One such person is Whitney Chavis, who’s just won the Guinness World Record for the biggest – and probably only – Silent...

These PS4 Sneakers Are Sublime

"Please could you not step on my dunks?"

Confession: this editor purchased a pair of Air Jordans a few years ago. As has become a parody for some parts of popular culture, they never get worn – primarily because they cost an arm and a leg. Fortunately, they weren’t as expensive as these custom PlayStation 4 sneakers, which will set you back...

PlayStation Boss Gets Punished for All of E3's Boring Bits This Year

This is for Powers

Regardless of whether or not you liked the content, Sony’s big Gamescom 2014 press conference was much better paced than its E3 2014 one. The folks at SCEE cut out all of the fat, and peppered the organisation’s media briefing in Cologne with trailers, announcements, and very little corporate gobbledygook. SCEA boss Shawn...
