  • Store Update 29th October 2014 (Europe)

    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...

  • News So, This PS4 Bundle Includes an Oddsock Plushie

    Day zero

    Sony’s deployed more PlayStation 4 hardware bundles than PlayStation Network server status updates this year, but this UK GAME mega pack simply has to be the pick of the bunch. Comprising a 500GB Jet Black console, two DualShock 4 controllers, a PlayStati

  • Store Update 22nd October 2014 (Europe)

    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...

  • News Sony Deploys Deadly Hallowe'en Discounts for PS4, PS3, and Vita in Europe

    Avoids using Sunset Overdrive's font

    It’s getting colder and the nights are drawing in, which means that it must be time for Hallowe’en. An excuse for supermarkets to offload themed pastries and piles of plastic tat, we’d argue that the spookiest day of the year rivals most religious holidays in pure commercial terms. With that in mind,...

  • Store Update 15th October 2014 (Europe)

    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...

  • News 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...

  • News LittleBigPlanet 3 Swoops into European Stores a Week Late

    Knit to worry

    LittleBigPlanet 3 looks and plays amazingly, but poor little Sackboy must be cowering in absolute terror at the prospect of releasing in November. The game had originally been set to deploy on 19th November in Europe – the same week as Dragon Age: Inquisition, Far Cry 4,

  • Store Update 8th October 2014 (Europe)

    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.

  • News 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...

  • Store Update 1st October 2014 (Europe)

    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

  • News Fight the Urge to Fritter Your Finances in European PSN Sale

    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...

  • News 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...

  • News Sony Drives Down the Price of DriveClub's Full Game Upgrade

    Squashed into the tarmac

    DriveClub’s free PlayStation Plus download has caused more controversy than a steak dinner in a vegetarian restaurant at times, but Sony finally appears to have come good on the deal. In addition to pledging two additional PlayStation 4 giveaways during the week of the complimentary title’s release, the platform holder...

  • Store Update 24th September 2014 (Europe)

    Ballin'

    No prizes for guessing the biggest new release on the European PlayStation Store this week – it’s FIFA 15. EA Sports’ soccer sim will deploy at various points over the coming days depending on where you live, so check your local release schedule for more information. It’s joined this week by a handful of hot arrivals, including the...

  • News Smaller PS4 Titles Discounted in European PlayStation Store Sale

    Buy a bargain

    We appreciate that some of you aren’t overly keen on the smaller titles available for the PlayStation 4, but what if we told you that you could pick them up for less than a Meal Deal from Boots? Sony’s launched a new European promotion that sees many of the next-gen system’s indie titles reduced – some of them selling for...

  • News Sony Pulls Down the PS4's PlayStation Plus Paywall for One Weekend

    Free to play

    Once upon a time, it was free to play multiplayer games on Sony’s flagship home console – but the PlayStation 4 has changed all of that. The platform holder sneakily announced during its E3 2013 press conference that you’ll need to pay in order to play its next-gen system online, and considering the popularity of PlayStation...

  • News Sony's Smallest Ever System Will Play 700 Games at Launch

    PlayStation TV tunes in from next month

    Software lineups for new hardware launches are often a subject of much scrutiny, but the PlayStation TV is bucking the trend with an enormous roster of 700 or so titles available on day one. The miniscule microconsole will play a wealth of PlayStation Vita, PlayStation Portable, and PSone Classics out of the...

  • News Still Want a White PS4? You'll Be Able to Get One with DriveClub

    Mega bundle also set to race away with your cash

    Sony’s strategy with the PlayStation 4 appears to revolve around bundling everything, so it’s no surprise to see the firm use up any remaining Glacier White models by packaging them with DriveClub. Starting from 8th October in Europe, you’ll be able to buy an icy console alongside Evolution...

  • Store Update 17th September 2014 (Europe)

    What the Flock?

    It’s a huge week on the PlayStation Store for fans of less high profile games. Many of you may still be busy searching for legendary loot in Destiny, but if Bungie’s next big thing didn’t tickle your fancy, why not give Anomaly 2, KickBeat, or Flockers a try? Interesting aside: Plants vs. Zombi

  • Store Update 10th September 2014 (Europe)

    You look like you've seen a Ghost

    Destiny’s out so we can finally stop talking about it, right? Wrong. Now that Bungie’s epic sci-fi shooter has fired its way onto physical and digital store shelves, we’re spending all of our time uncovering its secrets so that we can stuff your eyes with more articles than they can handle. Fortunately,...

  • News This Is How Sony's Greeting the Xbox One in Tier 2 Territories

    The tortoise and the hare

    Sony’s sold a serious number of PlayStation 4 consoles since the system’s launch in November last year – a respectable 10 million units to be precise – but it’s had a free run at the market in many regions. While the Xbox One is already available in key countries such as the USA and the UK, it’s only just...

  • Store Update 3rd September 2014 (Europe)

    Where the bloody hell is Minecraft PS4?

    Well, it's time to take a seat and a deep breath, because we've got some bad news for all you block lovers out there. Contrary to what PlayStation France said in the early hours of the morning, Minecraft on PS4 is nowhere to be found in today's European PlayStation Store update. Still, it has to be close, and...

  • News Minecraft Finally Builds Its Way onto European PS4s Later Today

    Can you dig it

    Rejoice, European block lovers, for today is finally the day that Minecraft digs its way onto the PlayStation 4. The title — barring another last minute delay — should emerge on the PlayStation Store after its usual weekly update. The good news comes via Twitter, where PlayStation France confirmed that develop

  • News PS4 Shooter Velocity 2X Flies for Free in September PS Plus Update

    PS All-Stars, Joe Danger, and more up for grabs

    If you’re in the market for a new PlayStation 4 game to keep you occupied while you wait patiently for Destiny’s release next month, then you may want to take note of Sony’s latest PlayStation Network sale. While there aren’t a great number of discounted next-gen releases to pick from, Watch Dogs at £39.99 with an extra 10...

  • Store Update 27th August 2014 (Europe)

    Seeing neon

    As is the case in North America, there’s a metric ton to look forward to on the European PlayStation Store this week. Fetch leads the way in Sucker Punch’s 80s infused superhero spin-off inFAMOUS: First Light, but there’s also Metro Redux and

  • News 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 –...

  • Store Update 20th August 2014 (Europe)

    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.

  • Store Update 13th August 2014 (Europe)

    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...

  • Gamescom 2014 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? Evolution Studios has taken to the European PlayStation Blog today to announce a DriveClub special edition, which will be available at launch in the Old World from 8th October...

  • News 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...

  • News 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...

  • Store Update 6th August 2014 (Europe)

    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.

  • News Tons of PS4 Titles Discounted in European Summer Sale

    Feeling the heat

    As promised, Sony has revealed the second round of Summer Sale savings – and this time, the heat is focused solely on the PlayStation 4. While none of these discounts go as low as you may be used to on the PlayStation 3 or Vita, it’s probably worth remembering that the next-gen console

  • News 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...

  • News Not Bought a PS4 Yet? This The Last of Us Remastered Bundle May Tempt You

    Ellie of an entry point

    While many have been swift to criticise the PlayStation 4’s first full year on the market, we reckon that Sony’s done an admirable job of beating the content drought and keeping a steady stream of software on store shelves. Only last month it collaborated closely with Ubisoft for the release of Watch Dogs, and it still...

    With the gluttony of blockbusters set to be revealed imminently at E3 2014, it's going to be hell waiting until Christmas and beyond to actually play them. Fortunately, Sony's aiming to ease your impatience with a sizeable sale on the European PlayStation Store. This focuses on titles from last year's big show, so if you missed...

    Producing perfection

    Being a detective isn’t easy at the best of times, but we suspect that it’s a teensy bit more difficult when you’re dead. That’s the predicament that Ronan O’Connor faces in Murdered: Soul Suspect, the supernatural thriller from Square Enix. While ghosts are at the forefront of this week’s European PlayStation Store...

    K.O.

    With the surprise announcement that BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma would be available on the European PlayStation Store this week, it was met with mixed emotions due to the lack of a retail release. Fans of the franchise raised concern over what would happen to the game's promotional characters, and the answer is not great. The sequel has been...

    Surprise attack

    With BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma's PlayStation 3 release in North America last month, and the announcement of its impending arrival on the Vita overseas, it's understandable why European fans of this frantic fighting franchise have been worried by the radio silence. However, you can finally put those sleepless nights to rest, as Arc...
