13th March 2014 (North America)

Better late than never

We feel like we’ve travelled back in time.

PlayStation Gold Wireless Stereo Headset - Sound Buy

Gold standard

Having recently graduated with a distinction from the school of Turtle Beach, this editor was not especially looking forward to another battle of wits against a pair of humble headphones.

A Pattern Is Emerging with Tales of Zestiria's Newest Teammate

Holy heck

When Bandai Namco announced that the third party member in PlayStation 3 exclusive RPG Tales of Zestiria was an invisible spirit, it definitely caught us off-guard.

Groan, Naughty Dog's The Last of Us Movie Is Just a Retelling of the Game's Story

Wait, seriously?

In news that makes absolutely no sense at all, prolific Naughty Dog penman Neil Druckmann has revealed that the recently announced cinematic adaptation of The Last of Us is actually just a straight retelling of the story told in the main game. "It’s an adaptation of the story of The Last of Us," the staffer stated. "As far as...

Japanese Sales Charts: Soul Sacrifice Delta Breathes Life Back into PS Vita

PlayStation 4 starting to slip

It may not be setting the sales charts alight, but the PlayStation Vita is continuing to sell reasonably well in its native Japan.

12th March 2014 (Europe)

In reverse

Well, this is strange. Normally, we don’t learn about the contents of the European PlayStation Store update until at least a day after the North American refresh, but due to some technical issues over the pond, it’s the old world that’s seizing the opportunity to go first. Sadly, this week’s highlights are already available in the...

Titan what?

Activision has taken aim at the European PlayStation Store, launching a plethora of discounts on the perennial Call of Duty franchise.
