Nice shot

The sun may be extracting every ounce of liquid from your body, but that’s not stopping Sony from pumping out some refreshment in the form of several new PlayStation 3 and Vita games. The real highlights this week include the excellent Stealth Inc: A Clone in the Dark, Zeno Clash 2, and the console re-release of Hot Shots Golf: W

June NPD: The Last of Us Conquers Charts, Sneaks Up on God of War III's Record

Ellie of a performance

Naughty Dog has well and truly hammered a nail in the coffin of comments suggesting that new franchises struggle at the end of a generation.

The lineup of this year’s PlayStation Store PLAY promotion takes centre stage in North America this week, with all four titles available for pre-order.

Alphabetical animals

Quick, someone give the studio behind Aabs Animals a copy of Letterland – doesn't the developer know that it goes Annie Apple, then Bouncy Ben, then Clever Cat?

Jak's back

There’s a ton of great content available as part of this week’s North American PlayStation Store refresh, including Dungeons & Dragons: Chronicles of Mystara HD and the intriguing Storm.

The one we nearly forgot

We sort of forgot about the weekly PlayStation Store update amidst the E3 2013 madness. Fortunately, we remembered in the nick of time – while we were eating a bowl of strawberries as it happens. It’s a good job that it jumped to the front of our mind, too, as this is a surprisingly good one, with The Last of Us, Tekken...

Don't forget

Capcom’s likeable action adventure Remember Me may be the biggest new addition to this week’s North American PlayStation Store update – but it’s by no means the only noteworthy arrival.
