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

    Take a deep breath and get ready to complain: the September PlayStation Plus update has been revealed.

  • News PS4 Faves Watch Dogs and Sniper Elite III Discounted in European PSN Sale

    Count the pennies

    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.

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Store Update 4th June 2014 (Europe)

    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...

  • News BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma's US Pre-Order Characters Are Paid DLC in Europe

    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.

    Jack Tretton doesn't even have a console yet

    Sony has broken virtually every system sales record in history with the PlayStation 4, but that’s not stopped some people from pondering whether it’s attempting to increase demand by holding back stock. Unsurprisingly, SCEA president Jack Tretton has rubbished such claims, stating that the...

  • News What's New on PS4? The Social Feed Has Been Switched Back On

    Connected consoles

    There’s a lot to like about the PlayStation 4, but one of its strongest assets is how social it is.

  • News Why Are Digital PS4 Games So Expensive in the UK?

    Price barrier

    Sony may have done right by consumers with regards to physical media on the PlayStation 4, but that doesn’t mean that it’s a priority on the next generation system.
