What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 91

Trick or treat

Boo! We love it when a public holiday happens to coincide with WAYP – even if Hallowe'en isn't technically, y'know, a public holiday. Oh, whatever – 31st October offers the perfect opportunity to settle down with some spooky games. But what will be raising your pulse rate? Freak us out in the comments section below.

Your Free PS4 PlayStation Plus Games for November Include Magicka 2, The Walking Dead

Mass Effect 2! Beyond Good & Evil! Dragon Fin Soup!

As rumoured earlier in the week, your free PlayStation Plus games for November will include The Walking Dead: Season 2 and Magicka 2 – on the PlayStation 4 at least. Bizarrely, the platform holder's yet to confirm the PlayStation 3 and Vita titles in the lineup, but we'll update you the

27th October 2015 (North America)

Better late than never

Alright, we're clearly very late posting the North American PlayStation Store update, but hopefully you can forgive us after the theatrics of the previous evening. Highlights this time include the just announced DriveClub Bikes and WWE 2K16. Yeah, we'll refrain from commenting on the latter in case we get lynched. PS4 Games:...

Japanese Sales Charts: Even with Declining Numbers, PS4 Manages to Stay at the Top

Not-so-steady ground

It's a bit of a hollow victory for the PlayStation 4 in the most recent Japanese hardware charts. Sony's new-gen machine is still sitting pretty at the top, but its numbers continue to fall away without the support of any big software releases. The console's managing to stay above the hallowed 20,000 mark, but it seems as...

27th October 2015 (Europe)

Dropping in

Sony's deployed the European PlayStation Store update for 27th October, which we have the sneaking suspicion doesn't include absolutely everything set to be released. Rumours are that DriveClub's bikes expansion will also drop today, so keep an eye on today's press conference for more on that.

UK Sales Charts: Assassin's Creed Syndicate Fails to Outsell Predecessors

London's burning

Assassin's Creed Syndicate has climbed to the top of the UK sales charts – but it may not like what it sees. Perhaps suggesting some serious franchise fatigue, the London-based adventure not only failed to better predecessor Assassin's Creed Unity's first week sales, but also every other major entry in the series. In other words,...

PS4 Predictions for Paris Games Week, The Witcher 3 DLC, and Assassin's Creed Syndicate

November's PS Plus reveal timing, PS4 firmware update surveys, and more

Hear that? That's the calm before the storm, because Paris Games Week is coming. It's been an absolutely agonising wait for Sony to take to the stage again, after it skipped its annual Gamescom press conference. Now the hype train's choo-chooing, and we're giving you front row...

What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 90

Chatter boxes

Wow, are we really up to Issue 90 already? It only feels like yesterday that we quietly robbed this feature idea from our friends over at Nintendo Life, and it's gone from strength to strength since then. A stat: since Issue One was published on 2nd March 2013 there have been over 4,500 comments on these articles – that's comparable...

Call of Duty: Black Ops III Goes Big with Launch Gameplay Trailer

Boom time

Guns! Guns! Guns! Activision has released an all-new gameplay trailer for Call of Duty: Black Ops III, boasting about the fact that the forthcoming foray features "three-games-in-one". We get a glimpse of the campaign, multiplayer, and zombies mode all in this 60 second sizzle piece. The title's due out on the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation...

Arslan: The Warriors of Legend Charges into the Fray with a New PS4 Trailer

War never changes

Already out in its native Japan, Arslan: The Warriors of Legend is slated for release early next year here in the West. The hack and slasher incorporates various battlefield actions into its warfare, as you're able to call upon the might of your army's cavalry, for example, in order to squash the opposition in one well timed...

Activision Should Cancel the PS3 Version of Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5

Scuffed knees

Good news PlayStation 3 owners: Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5 has been delayed. The skateboarding simulation – which, to be fair, wasn't entirely despised in our review – is spending a little more time in the skate shop on last-gen formats, while Activision properly applies some band aids to the PlayStation 4 version. The game was...

PS4's Until Dawn Discounted in Spooky EU Hallowe'en Sale

Boo

If you tend to prefer the 'treat' part of Hallowe'en, then this European PlayStation Store sale should give you a sugar rush. Set to run through the spooky season, Sony has deployed a salvo of discounts across the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and Vita – and the offers extend to relatively recent releases like Until Dawn and

Bloody blighters

The big smoke beckons in Assassin's Creed Syndicate this week, which is the biggest new addition to the PlayStation Store. Of course, it's not the only game vying for your attention, as Overlord: Fellowship of Evil and Primal Carnage: Extinction are also out. And there are new episodes of Life Is Strange and Tales from the...

People Are Having Real Problems Paying with Credit Cards on the PlayStation Store

Invalid info

There are more games launching on the PlayStation Store than ever before, but many people are having problems actually purchasing them. Sony's payment servers have been randomly rendering credit cards invalid for as long as we can remember, but the issue appears to be getting worse – as active threads on various websites testify...
