Don't Own a PS Vita? You Must Buy This Brilliant Bundle

Uncharted, Tearaway, and more included in the box

There’s enough doom and gloom surrounding the PlayStation Vita to make a Thomas Hardy novel look uplifting by comparison, but that doesn’t mean that the system has suddenly transformed into a waste of space. In fact, despite the negativity, we’re still enjoying the device as much as ever –...

Name's Spy, CounterSpy

It’s all espionage and beating bad guys over the head with clubs on the PlayStation 4 this week, with CounterSpy and Hotline Miami both deploying as cross-buy releases. Other new arrivals include vibrant platformer The Last Tinker: City of Colours and weedy third-person shooter Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare.

Beware the Unknown

While we are busy typing like a bunch of monkeys for Gamescom, you can already get your hands on one of the event's announcements. Ready to scare you silly is the PlayStation 4 demo of P.T., a horror title that Sony (and a certain Hideo Kojima) wants you to experience yourselves rather than ruin the surprise. You can also hit the...

DriveClub Special Edition Lines Up at Launch in Europe

Podium position

And we’re underway. Gamescom 2014 hasn’t technically started yet, but you didn’t think that you’d have to wait for the news to start rolling, did you?

Akiba's Trip: Undead & Undressed Bares All on PS4 in Europe Next Year

Leaving us hanging

It's safe to say that Akiba's Trip: Undead & Undressed has caught our attention with its reckless stripping and bizarre plot involving sun shy vampires. While coming to the PlayStation 3 and Vita this August in North America and October in Europe, those of you in the US will need to wait until later this year to sample this...

This Senran Kagura Shinovi Versus Trailer Is Not Safe for Work

You've been warned

Marvelous Entertainment’s ridiculously risqué PlayStation Vita action game Senran Kagura Shinovi Versus is bouncing its way to Europe this October. The title – which is essentially a more revealing Dynasty Warriors alternative – includes a ton of characters, online multiplayer, and some of the most inappropriate outfits...

Don't go breaking my chart

It’s the sizeable roster of free PlayStation Plus titles that are likely to keep you occupied this week, with the European PlayStation Store update playing host to new Instant Game Collection arrivals Metrico and Road Not Taken.

Plenty of PS4 Discounts Coming to Europe Next Week

More than 25 titles getting reduced

In truth, the first round of the European PlayStation Store’s highly publicised Summer Sale is somewhat disappointing. Yes, there are a few deals worthy of note, but the whole promotion is bloated with games that have been discounted dozens of times before. Don’t lose hope just yet, though, as a bunch of...

Big break

Make no mistake: The Last of Us Remastered is the big new addition to the European PlayStation Store this week. Alas, we’re running out of Joel and Ellie flavoured thumbnail images at this point, so we figured that we better rack up a Pure Pool picture instead. Chalk it up to variety. Sorry.

As promised, Sony has revealed the selection of free PlayStation Plus titles that will be gracing your PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and Vita in August.

Mass exoddus

Ever had one of those days where every single thing except the sky caving in goes wrong – and then, just to top it all off, your office chair falls to bits? Yeah, us neither – but the bit about the seat was true. So, here we are, writing the European PlayStation Store update on our hands and knees. No, there aren’t any suitable...

Hurrah, Vita JRPG Freedom Wars Will Be Getting a Full Physical Release in Europe

For the players

In the words of William Wallace: "They may take our lives, but they'll never take our Freedom Wars physical copies!" Indeed, after a few weeks of petitioning, Sony has finally decided that PlayStation Vita JRPG Freedom Wars will be getting a full retail release in Europe. The title was unpopularly planned to be a digital only title,...

Sony Taints Vita Exclusive Oreshika: Tainted Bloodlines with Download Requirement

Tainted move

Just like fellow first-party release Freedom Wars, you’ll need a roomy PlayStation Vita memory card in order to play Oreshika: Tainted Bloodlines in Europe, as Sony has revealed that the title will only be available as a digital download in the region. There’s no word on a North American cartridge just yet, but seeing as the former...

Something good

Much like its North American counterpart, this week’s European PlayStation Store update has a nice summer feel; in other words, there’s so little on offer that you may actually be forced to head outside and enjoy the warm weather. If that’s a frightening prospect for you, there are a few worthwhile additions this week, including...
