19th November 2014 (Europe)

Super love

Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it’s the European PlayStation Store update, which is absolutely bursting with big games. Among the highlights this week are Grand Theft Auto V, Dragon Age: Inquisition, and, er, Rugby 15. Oh alright, maybe not the last one, then – but you get the overarching idea. PlayStation 4: Dragon Age:...

PS4 Passes One Million Sales Milestone in Germany

Pole position

It may well have been severely supply constrained at launch, but the PlayStation 4 has already passed the one million sales milestone in Germany, leaving its competitors in the dust. According to SCEE, the number was crossed on 21st October, putting its next-gen platform in “pole position”. Given the region, we reckon that the...

Angry Murray

Costume Quest 2 has arrived just in time for Hallowe’en – on the PlayStation 3 at least. Sigh. Double Fine’s dress-‘em-up is just one of many delayed releases to deploy on the European PlayStation Store this week, with Nidhogg and Pier Solar HD also on the menu. Assassin’s Creed Unity is the obvious highlight, but this...

Lara Croft Plunders a New PS4 Price Point for Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition in Europe

A Lara savings

If you were outraged at the idea of Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition being sold at full price earlier in the year, then perhaps this week’s European PlayStation Store Deal of the Week discount will make Lara Croft’s spruced up escapade a little more palatable to you. Square Enix has slashed the PlayStation 4 re-release’s price...

All outta gum

There are a few unexpected surprises included as part of this week’s European PlayStation Store update. While the inescapable Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare is the obvious headline addition, there’ll be plenty more guns for you to toy with in Duke Nukem 3D: Megaton Edition on the PS3 and Vita. Also worth mentioning is the...

Injustice, inFAMOUS: First Light, and More Coming Soon to PlayStation Plus on PS4

You've been heard

Sony’s heard your pleas regarding PlayStation Plus and finally seems ready to power up the service now that the PlayStation 4 is a year or so old. Writing on the European PlayStation Blog, the platform holder has confirmed the next-gen lineup for December and January – and while there are still a couple of (great) indie games...

Late to the party

As with its North American counterpart, this European PlayStation Store update is absolutely bursting with new releases – but there’s one irritating absentee for this editor. Indeed, where the heck is Costume Quest 2? A game designed around Hallowe’en should arrive before said event, and if your humble host doesn’t get his...

Break the rules

The early bird always catches the worm, so we guess that we’ll be forced to feed on scraps for posting the European PlayStation Store update so darn late in the day. We’d blame the delay on traffic, but, well, that’s not strictly true. Either way, a rival saying states that you’re better late than never – and we happen to...

The raunchy, the creepy, and the creative

This week's selection is leaving us spoiled, and we haven't even hit November yet. If you're eager to gear up ready for some pre-Hallowe'en thrills, there's The Evil Within and Lone Survivor: The Director’s Cut. Meanwhile, if you're looking to live life on the wild side, then you can play with just the...

Are You Good Enough? The PlayStation League Launches This Week in Spain

Gaming just got serious

Venture into any video game message board, and you’ll realise that people already take this industry way too seriously. Still, in order to instil a little more anger into an already quite hostile pastime, Sony has revealed the Official PlayStation League in Spain – an eSports-esque competitive ladder for those with...

No Wei

As is the case in North America, it’s a big week for the European PlayStation Store as well. Highlights include, of course, Alien: Isolation and DriveClub – but there’s also a little title called Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition supposedly set to deploy this Friday, too. No, we had no idea that it was out so soon either.

This Enormous PS4 Bundle Is Bordering on Parody

Chuck everything in

In addition to wiping the floor with Microsoft's abhorrent used games policies, Sony’s strategy for the latest generation seems to have centred on one very simple tactic: bundle everything. The platform holder has announced a dizzying number of hardware packages over the past 12 months, and this set available in Germany is the...

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

How low can you go?

Everyone loves an impulse purchase, but the sheer number of savings on the PlayStation Store these days is getting out of hand. Not long after discounting a number of smaller PlayStation 4 titles, Sony has announced that it’s cutting the price of a bunch of PlayStation 3 and Vita releases, too. All available from today in...

Sony Shutting the Door on PlayStation Home Next Year

Eviction notice

Sony is locking the front door on PlayStation Home — and swallowing the key. The divisive virtual world, which has been in beta since the hazy days of 2008, will officially close on 31st March, 2015 in Europe. At the time of typing, there's no official word on the future of the platform in North America, but given that this was a...
