News: Sorry PS3, Sony Says PS4 Is Very Much the Focus Now

Sorry PS3, Sony Says PS4 Is Very Much the Focus Now

New-gen format is the future

The switch in Sony's focus to the PlayStation 4 has been much more dramatic than in generations past. Those of you with strong memories may recall the PlayStation 2 selling almost 50 million units once it had been succeeded, but the PlayStation 3 has fallen away in almost all territories outside of Asia. This is...

Sci-Fi JRPG Lost Dimension Entrusts Us with a Western Release Date and Free DLC

No betrayal here

If you'll recall, we wrote about PlayStation 3 and Vita title Lost Dimension a little while back, and exclaimed that it seemed to have the makings of an interesting role-playing game. Atlus' creation sees you team up with a bunch of stylish teens, and as the plot progresses, you'll need to decide who's an enemy, and who isn't...

Badland: Game of the Year Edition Brings Yet More Quirky Platforming to PS4, PS3, and Vita

How many's that now?

We've completely lost count of how many side scrolling platformers are available on PlayStation platforms. With the advent of the PS4 and its keen indie initiative, it feels like we get about ten platforming-puzzler hybrids pushed onto the PlayStation Store every week. Lo and behold, here we have, of course, the announcement of...

Hella Good News! Life Is Strange: Episode 3 Launches Next Week

For reals

If the fantasy setting of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt isn't whetting your whistle, then you may be more tempted to tour Arcadia Bay from 19th May instead. Square Enix has announced that the third episode in its divisive high school series Life Is Strange will debut next week on the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3. If you've already stumped...

Japanese Sales Charts: Vita Overtakes PS4 as Not a Single New-Gen Title Enters Top 20

Ouch

The PlayStation 4's steadily slipping down the Japanese charts, as it suffered another sales drop last week. Sony's latest console shifted 15,992 units as it fell into third place, behind the New 3DS LL and the PS Vita. The latter continues to escape store shelves at a solid rate, though, selling through 17,273 units. You can compare the...

13th May 2015 (Europe)

Tasty stuff

If you like indie games, you're in luck this week, as there are a lot of them being added as part of the European PlayStation Store update. Nom Nom Galaxy, Lost Orbit, and Toren are perhaps the biggest names in that department – but a quick shout out to Schrodinger's Cat, too. Of

PS3 Owners, It's Time to Upgrade to the PS4

Ubisoft's moving on

There are still lots of people clinging to the fact that the PlayStation 3 has a much larger install base than the PlayStation 4, but the reality is that there are many, many more active users on Sony's super machine. Ubisoft thinks so anyway, as it's ditching development on last-gen systems – well, aside from the odd casual...

Store Update: 12th May 2015 (North America)

12th May 2015 (North America)

We go again

People say that the PlayStation 4 has no games, but we often look at the North American PlayStation Store update and weep. Our review planning document can't keep up with all the new arrivals, and when you take a look at the sheer scale of new releases available in this week's refresh, you may be able to appreciate why. Of course, it's...

PlayStation Exclusive Persona 5's Nabbed a Release Window, and It's Looking Promising

Pray for Europe

It's arguably not a point that's being made as much as it should be, but Persona 5 is a big deal for PlayStation. The Japanese role-playing game series is on the very cusp of becoming a smash hit, with Persona 4 being a critical and commercial success not just in Japan, but over here in the West, too. If you still haven't seen...

Out This Week: Final Fantasy X|X-2 PS4, The Last of Us: Left Behind, Double Dragon

Final Fantasy X|X-2 PS4, The Last of Us: Left Behind, Double Dragon

Yuna you want it

It's a bit of a filler week here on Planet PlayStation, as a storm labelled The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt lurks on the horizon. There's no doubt that CD Projekt RED's hotly anticipated role-playing release is the title that's on everyone's lips, and so proceedings are looking a little light this time out. To be fair, though, there's no...

LEGO Dimensions' Toy Sets Are More Tempting Than the Game

A price to pay

The world really doesn't need another toys-to-life title, but we have to admit that these LEGO Dimensions add-ons are pretty darn tempting. As previously rumoured, the likes of Portal 2, Doctor Who, and The Simpsons will be joining the post-release party – and these first shots of the sets have us strangely tempted. The Valve...

Insert Björk lyrics here

We're not going to give you a reason to assemble with pitchforks outside Push Square Towers: we're going to play this article safe. Under-fire director Hideo Kojima has revealed an action figure for Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain based upon controversial character Quiet. According to the ousted executive, the toy...

UK Sales Charts: Project CARS Roars to Pole Position on PS4

Racing ahead

Crowd funded racing game Project CARS has pulled ahead of the pack, scoring the first simulation podium position since GRID 2 all the way back in 2013. The title sold best on the PlayStation 4 – which is not especially surprising considering the lack of similar games on Sony's system – and finished in front of familiar favourites...

Geralt the grey

This week will be remembered as the one in which The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt fever set in. Associate editor Robert Ramsey has been uploading every video and image under the sun, and much to this author's amazement, you lot keep darn well clicking on them. Sony also sent a few ripples through the industry by announcing that it won't be...

What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 67

Red faced

Whoops! This author totally forgot about WAYP this week, meaning that he was forced to send an embarrassed email to the rest of the team this morning, begging for submissions. Fortunately, a handful of scribes followed through, which means our weekend feature is still yet to miss a week. This is impressive form considering how forgetful...
