Remember Destructive Racer Cel Damage? It's Coming to PS4, PS3, and Vita

Crash, bang, WTF?!

Some high-definition upgrades you can spot a mile off, but we don’t think that anyone was expecting cult Twisted Metal-esque car combat game Cel Damage to make the jump to Sony’s latest suite of systems. IGN reports that the former PlayStation 2 wreck-‘em-up will launch as a cross-buy title across the PlayStation 4,...

Sony Kicks Off PlayStation Store 'Deal of the Week' Promotion in Europe

FIFA 14 on PS3 and Vita going cheap

Watching former favourites Manchester United slip down the Premier League may be priceless if you’re a Liverpool fan, but it’s getting this disgruntled editor down.

Poll: Is Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes Worth the Price on PS4?

Is Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes Worth the Price on PS4?

Much more than a packet of cigs

Few franchises are big enough to fashion a furore out of demos, but Metal Gear Solid has always existed among the select few properties that can. When a clever Konami opted to bundle the opening moments of Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty with new property Zone of the Enders, many purchased the latter just to see...

Review: Pac-Man Museum (PlayStation Network)

Pac-Man Museum (PlayStation Network)

Pac's the way I like it

Whether you're a ghost-munching veteran or a total newcomer, there's no better way to experience the multiple old-school adventures of Bandai Namco's infamous yellow orb than Pac-Man Museum. Bringing together nine titles that span three different genres, it's difficult not to feel that you're getting plenty of nostalgic...

Japanese Sales Charts: PS4 Sprints Out of the Blocks, Knack Thumps the Summit

Yakuza Ishin performs better on PS3

With popular publication Famitsu already releasing its own PlayStation 4 sales figures for Japan, this week’s Media Create chart isn’t as interesting as it perhaps could be. Nevertheless, the research firm reports that the next-gen system sold 309,154 units during its first two days on the market – a figure...

Who Would Win Wednesdays: Wei Shen vs. Kazuma Kiryu

Wei Shen vs. Kazuma Kiryu

Round five

After last week's Who Would Win Wednesdays saw Kratos absolutely devastate Dante by the feature's biggest margin of victory yet, we thought that it would be best to reel in the fighters somewhat and have ourselves a duel between two mortals. As always, we'll provide a helpful dollop of information regarding the combatants, a poll where...

25th February 2014 (North America)

Steal yourself

We’re going to assume that it’s not easy to rob the North American PlayStation Store, but if it was, you’d easily be able to fill a swag bag full of digital goods. In addition to PlayStation 4 sneak-‘em-up Thief, this week’s update brings Bomberman-esque multiplayer title Basement Crawl, arcade compilation Pac-Man Museum,...

Mobile Suit Fundam

Just when you thought that the Dynasty Warriors news couldn't get any better this year after publisher Tecmo Koei announced that Dynasty Warriors: Xtreme Legends Complete Edtion was heading West in April, the Japanese company goes ahead and throws a vague Summer release date at us for Shin Gundam Musou — or, as it'll be known...

Sorry Europe, You Won't Be Probing Any Bottoms in South Park: The Stick of Truth

Ubisoft cuts content from TV tie-in

A game based on controversial cartoon South Park was never going to toe the line, so it’s unsurprising to learn that South Park: The Stick of Truth has been censored in Europe. BT.com spotted a document suggesting that seven scenes had been removed from the title, which publisher Ubisoft has since confirmed...

Persona 5 Brings Style to Western PS3s in 2015

Personify

Just as the relatively haunting and mysterious image of those empty chairs against that blood red background was starting to slip from memory, Atlus has unveiled Persona 5's official English website. Much like its Japanese counterpart, it states a clear and simple message: the game will be coming to Western PlayStation 3s in 2015. It...

Konami Cuts the Price of Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes on PS4

Still need a degree to decipher it, though

Snapping up a boxed copy on...

Rumour: Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes Star Appearing in New Mortal Kombat?

Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes Star Appearing in New Mortal Kombat?

Finish him

It’s a good thing that 24 lead Kiefer Sutherland has plenty of practice playing Jack Bauer, because the actor may need to call upon his experience portraying the intrepid action hero in order to escape NetherRealm Studios’ in-house ninjas. Despite the developer being pretty silent since the release of superhero brawler Injustice:...
