News: PS4 Will Make PS3's 'Good' Online Experience 'Excellent'

PS4 Will Make PS3's 'Good' Online Experience 'Excellent'

Building blocks

Sony’s next generation console may be launching at a much lower price-point than its predecessor, but SCEE president Jim Ryan reckons that it will improve upon virtually every facet of its current flagship format. However, according to the likeable executive, one area that’s been given the greatest overhaul is the system’s...

News: PayPal Payment Option Added to the PlayStation 3

PayPal Payment Option Added to the PlayStation 3

It's about time

The lack of PayPal support on the PlayStation 3 is one of life’s greatest mysteries. Users have been utilising the online payment service to add funds to their Sony Entertainment Network wallets through the browser-based store for months now, but the service has been curiously absent on the company's black box itself. Any...

Store Update: 30th October 2013 (Europe)

30th October 2013 (Europe)

Day late friend

We’re a teensy bit late to the party with this week’s European PlayStation Store update, but fortunately the content has remained fresh over the past 24 hours. There are a fair few noteworthy arrivals this week, including Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, Battlefield 4, and Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Mirror of Fate HD...

Resogun, Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen, and Soul Sacrifice Front NA PS Plus Update

How do you like it, how do you like it?

It’s true that SCEA has been criticised for its supposedly weak PlayStation Plus lineups in the past, but we doubt that anyone could feel let down by November’s absolutely enormous selection. With the PlayStation 4 set to deploy midway through the month, the company’s latest offering includes free...

News: Head Backstage with Contrast, the PS4's First PS Plus Freebie

Head Backstage with Contrast, the PS4's First PS Plus Freebie

Family affairs

It may lack the big-budget punch of DriveClub, but Canadian indie Compulsion Games’ upcoming Contrast sure seems worth your time all the same. The film noir puzzle platformer is set to deploy next month on the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4, with PlayStation Plus subscribers on the latter system securing the swish excursion for...

Review: Proteus (PlayStation Network)

Proteus (PlayStation Network)

Kaleidoscope eyes

On our journey through Proteus, we witnessed history, mythology, nature, industry, death, ascension, and enlightenment. We experienced all of these things, but there's a chance that you may not, because part of the appeal of the release is that it's entirely subjective. As such, this is one of the most thought-provoking titles on...

Store Update: 29th October 2013 (North America)

29th October 2013 (North America)

Catch of the day

There’s plenty to plunder on Sony’s primary platforms this week, starting with Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag. The seafaring sequel is the definite highlight in the latest North American PlayStation Store update, but it’s accompanied by a competent crew including Proteus, WWE 2K14, and Castlevania: Lords of Shadow –...

OlliOlli's Campaign Will Put Your Skating Skills to the Test

Shove it

Tony Hawk may be weeping into his oversized skateboard peripheral as we type, but that’s not stopping British indie Roll7 from capitalising on the superstar’s video game nosedive. While it may not be garnering as much press as it deserves, OlliOlli is actually one of the more addictive titles that we’ve played on the PlayStation Vita...

News: This Is How You Share Your Games on the PlayStation 4

This Is How You Share Your Games on the PlayStation 4

Step one

Sadly, we’re not blessed with the comic timing of Sony executives Shuhei Yoshida and Adam Boyes, so our PlayStation 4 game sharing update is going to be a little more straight faced than the double act’s hilarious Xbox One troll from earlier in the year. Still, we come bearing new information, so hopefully you can forgive us for the...

BioShock Infinite: Burial at Sea Bubbles to the Surface Next Month

The big daddy

BioShock Infinite’s first major add-on pack Burial at Sea will plunge to the murky depths of Rapture next month, publisher 2K Games has confirmed. The soggy expansion will plot the return of protagonists Booker DeWitt and Elizabeth, albeit in an alternate timeline that’s sure to leave you with a furrowed brow by the time that you...

News: Sony Flinging PAIN onto the PSN for Free

Sony Flinging PAIN onto the PSN for Free

Bring the pain

In 2007, agony was brought upon the PlayStation Network in the form of PAIN, a ludicrous yet hilarious title which enabled you to chuck a human being at buildings, vehicles, and various surrounding landmarks with the objective of causing as much mayhem as possible. At the Brazil Game Show, Sony announced that the injury inducing...

Store Update: 23rd October 2013 (Europe)

23rd October 2013 (Europe)

Bat to the beginning

Much like its North American counterpart, this week’s European PlayStation Store update is similarly stacked with noteworthy content. Highlights include Batman: Arkham Origins, the re-release of Enslaved: Odyssey to the West, and God of War: Ascension. There’s also

Store Update: 22nd October 2013 (North America)

22nd October 2013 (North America)

Tripping over content

Where to even start? This week’s North American PlayStation Store update is so outrageously enormous that we doubt that we’ll be able to do it justice in under 75 words. Highlights include a bunch of PS4 pre-orders, the re-release of Enslaved: Odyssey to the West (seriously, you should play it), and a little game called,...
