Yakuza as a Live Performance Looks Suitably Mental

The real Dragon of Dojima

A stage show that the editors of this very site would have paid to see purely for the experience, 'Yakuza' obviously ties in to the fantastic action role-playing game series of the same name.

Japanese Sales Charts: PS4 Numbers Remain Reasonable as Uncharted Climbs High

Hanging on in there

There's a cheeky little grin on Nathan Drake's face right now as his Uncharted Collection almost scrambled to the summit of last week's Japanese software charts.

New patch apparently reveals in-game buffs that you can buy

This is how it starts, isn't it? Destiny's newest patch introduced a new, microtransaction-based service that allows you to buy cosmetic items with real money. With 18 fresh emotes on offer - which, to be fair, are actually pretty cool - it all seems rather harmless, but after mining the...

Slime time

We're slap bang in the nucleus of the holiday rush right now, but this week's software lineup isn't brimming with blockbusters – it seems that all of the slightly more niche releases have settled upon the next few days to deploy.

Dragon Quest Builders' Box Art Is a Bit of a Bust

Cheap and cheerful

Dragon Quest Builders is going to sell a frightening number of copies in Japan when it launches early next year on every viable PlayStation platform, but its box art is a bit rubbish.
