Attackers Threaten to Take PSN Offline Again This Christmas

Bah humbug

There'll be very little Christmas cheer for the unfortunate band of technicians tasked with keeping the PlayStation Network online this month, as attackers have threatened to bring Sony's service to its knees over the all-important holiday break. A group named Phantom Squad has already successfully unsettled Xbox Live this evening, and...

Review: Yakuza 5 (PS3)

Yakuza 5 (PS3)

Gangster's paradise

Should the long awaited Yakuza 5 prove to be the PlayStation 3's swan song, there couldn't be a more fitting release. Like the last-gen system itself, the latest instalment in SEGA's seedy soap opera is occasionally convoluted and slow to get started, but it's deeply entertaining all the same. It may have taken series protagonist...

Mixed up world

Nintendo enjoyed its usual seasonal boost in the latest Media Create report, with both the Wii U and 3DS dominating the Japanese hardware and software charts.

15th December 2015 (Europe)

Let 'er rip

'Tis the season to play your backlog so there's not much new on the European PlayStation Store this week. The biggest arrivals include Assassin's Creed Syndicate's beefy Jack the Ripper add-on and PaRappa the Rapper 2, which is launching as a PlayStation 2 port on the PlayStation 4.

Tales of Berseria Spins An All-New Yarn in 2016 on PS4, PS3

But only in Japan for now

Before we get to the subject at hand, we have a tale of our own to share: office weeaboo Robert Ramsey has taken some time off, so forgive us if we don't grasp the anime intricacies of this Tales of Berseria trailer. The game, which is due out on the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 in Japan next year, will see you assume...

Looks Like Star Wars 1313 May Happen After All

Not being sarlacc-stic

If you're a Star Wars fan, you probably remember the Star Wars 1313 trailer – largely because it was excellent. It promised a grittier, more action-adventure based Star Wars game, not unlike Uncharted, and many people were pretty excited for it, considering it explored Boba Fett's past, something that hadn't really been...

What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 97

Deck the fools

Apparently it's already 12th December, which means that many of you are probably just realising that you have Christmas gifts to buy and decorations to assemble. Gulp. There's still time to get all of that sorted, though, so we recommend shirking your responsibilities and sitting pretty with your PlayStation platform of choice...

Store Update: 8th December 2015 (North America)

8th December 2015 (North America)

Late, late, late

Alright, excuses time. So, the North American PlayStation Store update was not only posted late this week, but it also happened to go live the same time this author booted up Yakuza 5 – and if you'd been waiting, like, three years to play the brawler, then you'd skip on the already delayed software selection, too. Better late than...

Destiny Patch 2.1.0 Is Jetting onto PS4 Right Now

Zip zip zoom

Guardians rejoice: the day has finally arrived. Destiny's latest patch buffs auto rifles (again), pulse rifles are getting nerfed, and Titan Sunbreaker subclass is being slapped down to Earth - or what's left of it, we suppose. Of course, it's not just about balance changes. Announced at Sony's PlayStation Experience 2015 press...
