  • Store Update 5th January 2016 (Europe)

    Back in business

    It's the first European PlayStation Store update of the year, which means that we're nervously eyeing the date in the headline to ensure that we don't write '2015'. To be fair, it's a decent refresh, too, with Hardware: Rivals and Amplitude all on the docket. What will you be celebrating the onset of the new year with? PS4 Games:...

  • Store Update 22nd December 2015 (Europe)

    The last noel

    "It's almost Christmas," we hear you scream. That don't mean that the European PlayStation Store's taking time off, though. The highlight this week is probably Fantavision – the PlayStation 2 launch title which is now available on the PlayStation 4. Also twinkling in the corner of our eye are Hatoful Boyfriend: Holiday Star and...

    A surprisingly big one

    Lots to see and do on the European PlayStation Store this week, as Sony beats the winter blues with some big new releases.

    How low can you go?

    You didn't think that North America was going to get all of the fun, did you? As promised, Sony has rolled out Europe's gigantic Black Friday PlayStation Store sale – and there are some PlayStation 4 humdingers among its ranks. For example, you'll be able to snag a digital copy of

    Waster land

    We don't really need to tell you what's new on the European PlayStation Store this week, do we? Okay, maybe we do: Fallout 4. But while Bethesda's colossal role-playing release will certainly be catching the most attention, it's worth pointing out that there are other games – like Sword Art Online: Lost Song, for starters – available...

  • News We Wished Our PS4 Life Was This Wonderful

    Here to make you go

    Life in Push Square Towers revolves around sifting through the shite in press releases and proof reading dozens of articles a day, so we're definitely jealous of this particular PlayStation 4 player's daily routine. Sony's new European TV ad is absolutely crammed with brand references, with everything from Street Fighter V to...

  • Store Update 27th October 2015 (Europe)

    Dropping in

    Sony's deployed the European PlayStation Store update for 27th October, which we have the sneaking suspicion doesn't include absolutely everything set to be released. Rumours are that DriveClub's bikes expansion will also drop today, so keep an eye on today's press conference for more on that.

  • News Most of Rock Band 4's Legacy DLC Delayed in Europe

    Bum note

    European PlayStation players haven't had the best relationship with Sony in recent times, mainly due to late Store Updates and PlayStation Plus releases.

  • Store Update 13th October 2015 (Europe)

    Buyers be aware

    It's insanity on the European PlayStation Store this week – and we're not referring to Goosebumps' wince-inducing £54.99 price point. No, we're more referencing the sheer volume of content, which spans everything from Minecraft: Story Mode all the way through to The Talos Principle and

  • Store Update 6th October 2015 (Europe)

    New releases rolling out

    It's an absolutely gigantic week on the European PlayStation Store, with Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection obviously at the front of all our minds.

  • Store Update 30th September 2015 (Europe)

    Epic bail

    Sony puts less effort into these European PlayStation Store update posts with each passing week – but then we suppose it is a thankless task, seeing as they're always followed by a stream of frustrating comments. Either way, Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5 is the biggie this week. It apparently sucks. PS4 Games: Arcade Archives Moon...

  • News Thought-Provoking Vita Title Actual Sunlight Finally Gets a European Release Date

    Not too long to wait, either

    Actual Sunlight is a strange little game that deals with depression and other life issues.

If you've found yourself intrigued by this rather bleak yet...

    Back of the net

    European PlayStation Store update cliché #112: it's a humdinger of a week on Sony's virtual plaza.

PS4 Games: EA SPORTS FIFA 16 (Out 22/09/15, varies by...

  • News The Best Games Are on PS4, Sony Commercial Claims

    Hard to argue, honestly

    Considering how popular the PlayStation 4 has become, it was always going to get some stick. The system's been breaking sales records left and right, and we reckon that's clouded the judgement of some when it comes to the sheer variety of software available on the device. But events like today's pre-TGS press conference go...

  • Store Update 15th September 2015 (Europe)

    Return of the king

    We really must stop introducing these Store Update posts with clichés like "it's a big week on the PlayStation Store" – but this tends to be a universal truth at the minute. Destiny: The Taken King is obviously the major attraction this time, but a mention must go to PES 2016: Pro Evolution Soccer, too. What's caught your eye?...

To be totally honest, we can't spy that many good deals, but at least you can add to your PlayStation 3...

  • News This EU DriveClub Deal Is An Absolute Steal

    Cheap and cheerful

    We have no hesitation saying that DriveClub is one of the best games on the PlayStation 4 these days, but if the launch issues put you off then there's never been a better time to pick it up. Sony's currently selling the main game alongside its Season Pass for a mind bogglingly cheap £15.99 on the European PlayStation Store –...

  • News Killzone: Shadow Fall's PS4 Price Shot to Pieces on EU PlayStation Store

    Helgasp

    Killzone: Shadow Fall sure has its critics, but there are things to enjoy about this PlayStation 4 exclusive shooter. And if you haven't got around to the launch title just yet, Sony's discounted it on the European PlayStation Store this week, brining the price of entry down to just £11.99. That's not bad, and with the Season Pass selling...

  • Store Update 1st September 2015 (North America)

    The phantom pain

    Another week, another gigantic update on the North American PlayStation Store. Of course, you already knew that because we're a little late posting the content drop – but just in case you missed it, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is the highlight this time. It's not, by any stretch, the only game on the itinerary, though,...

Alright, we'll quit recycling that quote and get to the point: Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is without doubt the biggest new arrival in this week's European PlayStation Store update. That should tell you a little about the magnitude of the sequel, as Mad Max, Grow Home, and Sup

  • News PGA Tour PS4's Price Putt Down in EU PlayStation Store Sale

    Cost of LEGO games also crumbled

    With no release date or information attached to Sony's own Hot Shots Golf sequel, we're gagging for a good gold game on the PlayStation 4. Unfortunately, the recently released Rory McIlroy PGA Tour hit a bit of a bogey – but we'd happily take it for a swing at the right price. Fortunately, then, EA Sports has...

  • Store Update 25th August 2015 (Europe)

    The motherload

    Good grief, we don't think that European PlayStation Store updates get much bigger than this. There are no less than 15 new PlayStation 4 games out this week, and while they're not all as equally exciting, one can't argue with such an immensely impressive haul. We've rounded up all of the goods below, but do let us know what you'll be...

  • Store Update 18th August 2015 (Europe)

    Dead loud

    It's a colossal week on the European PlayStation Store this time – especially for the PlayStation 4.

    There's no doubt about it: the Dark Lord has had SCEE in a Force Choke this morning.

    The calm before the storm

    Barring a few downloadable titles, it's slim pickings this week on the European PlayStation Store.

In fact, this is probably one of the smallest updates that...

    While the first revision of the PlayStation 4 isn't quite the slim model that many of you may have had in mind, it does appear to be rolling out in Europe at last.

    Well this is all rather new, isn't it? The European PlayStation Store historically doesn't update until Wednesday, but with more and more games dropping on a Tuesday, it seems like Sony's decided to share the lineup for the Old World a little earlier.

    Similarly to yesterday's best games montage, Sony has dropped a new European commercial boasting that the PlayStation 4 is the world's most powerful console.

Don't worry, the service is definitely still online – but a not-so insignificant number of European premium members are reporting this weekend that their PlayStation Plus account on the...

  • Store Update 29th April 2015 (Europe)

    Shattered times

    As was the case over the Atlantic, there are a ton of PlayStation 4 titles out to tempt you in this week's European PlayStation Store update. The highlights include Broken Age, Project Root, and Tropico 5 – but honourable mentions must go to late comers Paperbound and Rack N Ruin.

  • News Big PS4 Games Discounted in Latest European Sale

    What are yer buyin'?

    Is your backlog looking a little light? Well, now it's time to do something about it. Sony's set to release an impressive roster of sales on the European PlayStation Store later today, and the savings extend to some real humdingers. How about, for example, scoring Watch Dogs for just £15.99 – or Trials Fusion for the even...

  • News Shovel Knight Ploughs a Path to EU PlayStation Platforms

    Spade in the USA

    It may have only been a day overdue, but let's be honest: Shovel Knight shouldn't have been late in the first place. Fortunately, we can all take solace in the news that Yacht Club Games' critically acclaimed side-scroller is finally available in Europe – apparently it managed to break free from SCEE's infamous QA limbo, which...

  • News Sorry Europe, You're Not Getting Shovel Knight Today

    SCEE strikes back

    Costume Quest 2 is finally out in Europe six months after the holiday that it was produced to promote, so what are you whinging about? Oh, that's right: Shovel Knight, which everyone expected to be part of today's European PlayStation Store update, is actually not due out in the Old World until, er, tomorrow. Maybe. Why? We're...

  • Store Update 22nd April 2015 (Europe)

    Tonight's the knight

    We're running out of spade-related puns, so let us just say things straight: Shovel Knight is out on the European PlayStation Store this week. There's a fairly healthy roster of software for PlayStation owners to sink their teeth into actually, with LA Cops and Assassin's Creed Chronicles: China also part of the roster. Basement...

  • Store Update 15th April 2015 (Europe)

    Meet your murderer

    Consider this a catch-up edition of the weekly European PlayStation Store update. Yes, the likes of Mortal Kombat X may be headlining, but it's long overdue titles such as Costume Quest 2 and Home that caught our eye. Both of these released in North America many months ago, so it's nice to see SCEE finally back up to date. Now,...

  • News PS4 Releases Reduced in Latest Round of EU Sales

    Cash back

    You like LEGO, right? Of course you do – only Mega Bloks fanboys shun the famous Danish bricks. Assuming that you don't fall into the latter category, then you're going to have a field day over the next couple of weeks, as practically every entry in Traveller's Tales' popular series is up for sale. That includes LEGO Batman 3: Beyond...

  • News Costume Quest 2 Gets a Timely European Release Date

    A trick and a treat

    After spending, oh, just the eight months in SCEE quality assurance hell, Costume Quest 2 is finally ready for, er, Hallowe'en. The game's already available on the PlayStation 3 in Europe, but missed the Holiday of Horrors by some margin on the PlayStation 4. There's no word as to why the game was delayed – maybe it couldn't...

  • Store Update 8th April 2015 (Europe)

    Calm before the carnage

    Bastion, Stealth Inc 2: A Game of Clones, Tower of Guns – it's raining good indie games. There are no retail releases available as part of this week's European PlayStation Store update – well, unless you ignore the PlayStation 3 version of RIDE – but there's enough good stuff elsewhere to tide you over until Mortal...

  • Store Update 1st April 2015 (Europe)

    Second go

    If you've already got the Platinum Trophy in Bloodborne like our very own Dan Carter (!!!), then you may be looking for a new challenge. Fortunately, the fine folks over at Bandai Namco have brought forward the release of Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin, and it's part of this week's meaty PlayStation Store update. Also up for grabs...

  • Store Update 31st March 2015 (North America)

    Super mother lode

    Another week, another absolutely enormous North American PlayStation Store update. The fiscal year ain't over yet we guess, so you can look forward to the likes of Axiom Verge, MLB 15 The Show, and, er, Run Sackboy! Run!. C'mon now – don't get pretending like you weren't excited for that one. PS4 Games: Axiom Verge (Cross Buy...

  • News Super Mega Baseball Hits a Homerun on PS4, PS3 in Europe

    Insert tired baseball pun here

    Do you know what Europeans love just as much as peanut butter and jelly sandwiches? Er, baseball of course. In fact, we love it so much on these ancient shores that we've not only got MLB 15 The Show to look forward to this week, but also Super Mega Baseball, the surprisingly good arcade title from Metalhead Software...

  • Store Update 25th March 2015 (Europe)

    Take your pick

    We want to draw attention to all of the other good stuff on the PlayStation Store this week, but let's be honest: Bloodborne's the one that's going to be getting the majority of you hot under the collar. That's not to say that there's a shortage of content elsewhere, of course, with new Life Is Strange and Game of Thrones episodes out...

  • News Mass Effect 3 Is Free for European PlayStation Plus Members Right Now

    Reaper what you sow

    You may have already stuffed your PlayStation 3 away in a dusty cupboard, but no one can grumble at free games. Mass Effect 3 is currently flying free for PlayStation Plus subscribers on the European PlayStation Store. This looks like a mistake to us, as it's clearly

  • Store Update 18th March 2015 (Europe)

    Daylight robbery

    The cops of Battlefield Hardline should forget about the gang wars and turn their attention to the daylight robbery occurring on the PlayStation Store, as EA's flogging one version of the first-person shooter for £104.99. Even considering the extortionate prices on Sony's online plaza, that seems especially expensive. We think that...

  • News Gut Some God of War Discounts Starting Today on the EU PlayStation Store

    Plus a few PS4 deals

    This week's European PlayStation Store deals are of the bloody kind, as the God of War franchise rips apart its pricing – preferably in horrifically violent fashion. Celebrating the property's 10th anniversary, most of Kratos' adventures are on sale, and you can get further price reductions if you're a PlayStation Plus...

  • Store Update 11th March 2015 (Europe)

    Gaming selection box

    It's very rare that we have a week where there's something for just about everyone, but with Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number and Flame Over maintaining an indie presence, DmC: Definitive Edition and The Evil Within: The Assignment catering to the more mainstream market, and

  • Store Update 4th March 2015 (Europe)

    Just the tip

    It's Wednesday, which can only mean one thing: it's European PlayStation Store update day. Y'know, next time that you're perusing one of these posts, spare a thought for this author, who struggles to come up with introductions to these articles every week. Highlights this time include OlliOlli 2: Welcome to Olliwood, Helldivers, and the...
