Want to Play PSone Games on PS4? Sorry, You're Gonna Need Your Old Consoles

Starting over

If our very own Jamie O’Neill’s recent roster of retro reviews have got you frothing at the mouth over some old-school gaming, then you’re going to want to keep your classic consoles hooked up. Revealed as part of yesterday’s colossal PlayStation Blog post, Sony has stated that the PlayStation 4 will not be backward compatible...

PlayStation, This Is Very Much Your Life

For the players since 1995

If last week’s ‘Perfect Day’ commercial didn’t get you suitably hyped for the release of the PlayStation 4 next month, then this PlayStation Access video should do the trick. Dubbed ‘For the Players’, the poignant clip depicts almost two decades’ worth of PlayStation gaming from the perspective of a London...

A real stinker

Excuse the misleading sub headline – this is actually an excellent North American PlayStation Store update. Instead, we’re referring to the release of Orc Attack: Flatulent Rebellion, which promises a “fart-filled romp” where “fun-loving Orcs battle pollution loving Humans in a humorous fantasy setting”. Hmm. Less smelly...

Overcast edition

Prop up your umbrellas, because this week’s North American PlayStation Store update features a drizzling of new content. First and foremost is Rain, the quirky stealth adventure from Japan Studio. It’s joined by Flashback, the modern day remake of Paul Cuisset’s classic, and the awkwardly dubbed Die! Die! Die!. Are you ready...

Spherical balls

There’s plenty of football on offer as part of this week’s North American PlayStation Store update – but not the kind that our friends over the Atlantic may expect. FIFA 14 and PES 2014: Pro Evolution Soccer are both out now, and that means that there’s nary a shoulder pad or helmet in sight. Other new additions include the...

Three's a crowd

The entire industry has gone on holiday in order to give you ample opportunity to play Grand Theft Auto V. Granted, there are a couple of new releases available as part of this week’s North American PlayStation Store update – Hot Wheels: World’s Best Driver, anyone? – but, let's be honest, there’s only really one game that...

Games galore

There are so many new titles available as part of this week’s North American PlayStation Store update that we don’t really know where to start. In addition to a cavalcade of fresh retail releases – including Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, Lost Planet 3, and Killer Is Dead – there are also some smaller titles vying for your...

Spyro to Shadow Fall

Do you remember when games were little more than a collection of polygons and grainy textures? There’s a good chance that you grew up during the PSone era, then, which means that you’ve been lucky enough to live through the technical progression of the PlayStation brand since its very inception. For those of you that have...

Royal flush

This week’s North American PlayStation Store update is an absolute corker. In addition to the hotly anticipated Vanillaware brawler Dragon’s Crown, there’s also the brilliant Tales of Xillia vying for your attention. Other goodies include Ibb and Obb and new Soul Sacrifice DLC. Let's do this. Pre-Orders: NHL 14 ($59.99)

Dance with death

Sony’s hoping to brighten up your week with a couple of doozies as part of the latest North American PlayStation Store refresh. Cloudberry Kingdom and PixelJunk Monsters: Ultimate HD both scored highly in our reviews, meaning that there’s no excuse for not adding the titles to your PSN basket as we type. It’s also worth noting...

PLAYtime

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. However, the platform holder’s latest digital initiative is not the only highlight, with Dynasty Warriors 8, Doodle God, and Kung Fu Rabbit also fleshing out a surprisingl

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? We’re waffling in order to fill out words because there’s nothing really of note in this week’s North American PlayStation Store update. We suppose that Coconut...

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 highlight, though, has to be the Jak & Daxter Collection, which is out now for the PlayStation Vita. PSN: Dungeons & Dragons...

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. Other debuts include Limbo on the PlayStation Vita, alongside a couple of free applications for the portable platform. Shall we get down to...

This week’s European PlayStation Store update is quite the varied feast. Just some of the highlights on offer at the gaming buffet are Wonderbook: Diggs Nightcrawler, Fuse, and The HD Adventures of Rotating Octopus Character. Elsewhere, Quell Memento is also up for grabs, while shameless impostor
