    You're too late

    It’s strange that Sony hasn’t officially said anything about the PlayStation 4’s pre-order scenario in Europe.

    Nothing to see here

    We were hoping that this week’s European PlayStation Store update would offer something of merit after last week’s shambles, but it turns out that the games industry really is on vacation.
