Hackers Target Systems Such As PS4 Around 34,000 Times a Day

Hosing down the firewall

People were particularly hostile towards Sony during the dark days of the PlayStation Network hack a couple of years ago – but a new report from cyber security firm Kaspersky Lab has outlined just how much strain the platform holder’s constantly under.

Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 Being Launched Off the PSN Store

Marvel vs. Capcom 2 taking a fist to the face, too

It seems that Capcom has been unable to break the mounting combo of comic book character licensing fees. As part of a pretty nonchalant blog post, the Japanese publisher has revealed that both Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 and Marvel vs. Capcom 2 will be leaving the PlaySt

You Don't Have As Many PSN Trophies As This Guy

Hakoom hits Level 100

Trophies are a curious part of the PlayStation experience. As much as we enjoy the thrill of unlocking a brand new trinket, they can sometimes feel a little bit like hard work. One person who’s transformed the grind into a day job is Hakoom, the world’s leading pursuer of small PNG pictures. And he’s just hit another...

A-Men 2 (PlayStation Network - Vita)

Pray before playing

The A-Men have returned to challenge your deductive skills in another set of devilishly difficult combat scenarios.

Seasonal cyborg

ToeJam & Earl creator Greg Johnson’s bonkers intergalactic excursion Doki-Doki Universe takes centre stage on the North American PlayStation Store this week.

Review: Putty Squad (PlayStation 4)

Putty Squad (PlayStation 4)

Killer Carrots and Crazy Cats

Back in the nineties, the eventually unreleased Amiga version of Putty Squad was praised by the press for its varied level shapes, consistent game logic, and “masterful” animation. Jump forward 15 years, and we no longer get excited by shapes (unless they’re naughty shapes and you’re a member of Reddit), or game...

flOw (PlayStation 4)

Go with the flOw

Before flower and Journey, there was flOw. Swimming onto the PlayStation 3 in 2007, this trailblazing title from thatgamecompany was one of several games that paved the way for the thriving indie scene found on consoles today. Six years later, it’s fitting that the release has washed up on the PlayStation 4 as part of its own...

Rainbow Moon (PlayStation Network - Vita)

Richer than a pot of gold

Lore has it that leprechauns leave pots of gold at the end of a rainbow. Seeking out the end of the colourful arch will bestow vast riches upon the adventurer – the reward for a dangerous and long journey, where the goal is often hidden from sight.

Animal magic
