Really Reus

There's no breakout of every version of FIFA 17 in this week's North American PlayStation Store update, so it looks positively teensy compared to its European counterpart. Darkest Dungeon and XCOM 2 are pretty big releases, though. Decent restock, we reckon. PS4 Games: ARCADE ARCHIVES CONTRA $7.99 DARKEST DUNGEON (CROSS-BUY) $24.99...

Don't get us wrong, this is a busy European PlayStation Store update, but it's padded by about a billion different versions of FIFA 17, which makes it look larger than it is. PS4...

Free the freebies

The price has gone up in North America, but few could be disappointed with September 2016's selection of free PlayStation Plus games.

Your Destiny

Destiny: Rise of Iron takes top billing on the European PlayStation Store this week, bringing ample incentive for you to return to Bungie's sci-fi universe. It's been joined by a bunch of lower-profile titles, including Dear Esther, The Bunker, and Virginia – all of which are at the very least worth a look. PS4 Games: TRIALS OF THE...

So many PlayStation 4 games. Although, to be fair, this week's European PlayStation Store update is padded by à la carte remaster compilations and about a billion different versions of NHL 17.
