Talking Point: What One Game Do You Always Come Back To?

What One Game Do You Always Come Back To?

The one and only

Addiction is a strong word, but that's how many would describe their need to play one single game time and time again. A title that you've never really been able to put down, something that your mind always wanders back to, whether it's because you're bored and unsure of what to play, or because you simply enjoy it so much. It may...

Japanese Sales Charts: PlayStation 4 and Bloodborne Slaughter the Competition 

The hunt is over

The PlayStation 4 is basking in the blood of its enemies right now, as it's managed to top the Japanese hardware charts for the fifth week in a row. A slew of big software releases have kept Sony's system in first place, although that momentum could be slowing down soon now that the big hitters have passed by. Still, Bloodborne...

There Was No Place Quite Like PlayStation Home

Memories of Sony's madcap virtual world

There's a big 'To Let' sign in the Home Plaza today, and the remnants of makeshift toilet paper streamers scattered about its tufts of unkempt grass.

April's PlayStation Plus Freebies Include Tower of Guns, Never Alone on PS4

Killzone Mercenary, Dishonored, and more

PlayStation Plus – on a Tuesday afternoon? To say that today's update has caught us by surprise is an understatement, but heck, we installed a big 'Stop Press' button in Push Square Towers for a reason. The lineup, then: Tower of Guns, the fast-paced first-person shooter, and Never Alone will both be free...

You'll Finally Be Able to Transfer Your Dead or Alive 5 DLC to Last Round Next Month

Train wreck

Dead or Alive 5: Last Round has faced numerous problems since it launched last month.

Insert tired baseball pun here

Do you know what Europeans love just as much as peanut butter and jelly sandwiches? Er, baseball of course. In fact, we love it so much on these ancient shores that we've not only got MLB 15 The Show to look forward to this week, but also Super Mega Baseball, the surprisingly good arcade title from Metalhead Software...
