Sounds Like flower's Going to Look Bloomin' Lovely on PS4

Know your roots

Before thatgamecompany changed the industry with a couple of hooded buccaneers, the studio preferred to dabble in botany.

Overcast edition

Prop up your umbrellas, because this week’s North American PlayStation Store update features a drizzling of new content. First and foremost is Rain, the quirky stealth adventure from Japan Studio.

Review: Rain (PlayStation Network)

Rain (PlayStation Network)

Dry your eyes

Rain has the same ethereal quality as ICO. Much like Fumito Ueda’s masterpiece, this is a muted experience, orchestrated only by the sound of running water and composer Yugo Kanno’s twinkly score. It’s also a tale of boy meets girl, where two kindred spirits connect under the starlight of a sodden dream world. The parallels are...

25th September 2013 (Europe)

Alive and kicking

There’s plenty of meat on the latest European PlayStation Store update’s bones. In addition to FIFA 14 on virtually every platform under the sun, there’s also the overdue arrival of Ratchet: Gladiator to look forward to.

24th September 2013 (North America)

Spherical balls

There’s plenty of football on offer as part of this week’s North American PlayStation Store update – but not the kind that our friends over the Atlantic may expect. FIFA 14 and PES 2014: Pro Evolution Soccer are both out now, and that means that there’s nary a shoulder pad or helmet in sight. Other new additions include the...

The free-to-play PlayStation 3 exclusive occurs after an asteroid cluster has collided with the Earth, bringing an end to world order. You play as a mercenary...

American dream

Grand Theft Auto V is the headline new addition on the European PlayStation Store this week, but the sandbox sequel has got a little more competition than its North American counterpart.

Three's a crowd

The entire industry has gone on holiday in order to give you ample opportunity to play Grand Theft Auto V. Granted, there are a couple of new releases available as part of this week’s North American PlayStation Store update – Hot Wheels: World’s Best Driver, anyone? – but, let's be honest, there’s only really one game that...
