Difficult decisions

You may need to pinch yourself, but Sony has released a second PlayStation 4 commercial for the North American market.

Tripping over content

Where to even start? This week’s North American PlayStation Store update is so outrageously enormous that we doubt that we’ll be able to do it justice in under 75 words. Highlights include a bunch of PS4 pre-orders, the re-release of Enslaved: Odyssey to the West (seriously, you should play it), and a little game called,...
