Store Update: 27th January 2015 (North America)

27th January 2015 (North America)

Manny, oh man

This week's North American PlayStation Store update is all about the addition of two new titles: Dying Light and Grim Fandango Remastered. The heavy hitters have some company in Life Is Strange (out on Friday) and the verbose Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth2: Sisters Generation – but we suspect that it's the aforementioned that will...

What Will You Be Spending Your 10 Per Cent PSN Discount On?

Decisions, decisions

When you really stop and think about it, Sony's "apology" for the PlayStation Network outage over Christmas is a bit of a marketing masterstroke. While the company gets to look like it's doing right by its consumers, we'd be shocked if it didn't see an enormous spike in sales when the offer goes into effect from 09:00AM local...

Winged and wonderful

We may be looking at the content pipeline for a different continent, but the highlights in this week's European PlayStation Store update are identical to those in yesterday's North American refresh. That means that Citizens of Earth, Resident Evil, and Saints Row: Gat Out of Hell are all vying for your attention. The question...

Citizens of Spencer Mansion

If the past couple of weeks have been a little light on the PlayStation Store, then today's North American update is a concrete block in comparison. In addition to smaller gems like Splice and Citizens of Earth, it's also packing heavy hitters like Resident Evil and Saints Row: Gat Out of Hell. Let's-a-go! PS4 Games:...

Act surprised

Another day, another chance to find out 2014 sales data. This time it's quite interesting, though, as Sony has shared lists of the best selling titles on the PlayStation Network. In North America, Destiny blasted the competition and landed in first place on PS4, while in Europe, Minecraft dug its way to victory on every single console...

Dead kings

Parts of the UK are snowed in today, so it's a good job that you don't need to go outside to shop at the PlayStation Store. To be fair, this week's shelf refresh doesn't have a whole lot to shout about, with Joe Danger 2: The Movie and add-on packs for Assassin's Creed Unity and Far Cry 4 being the only real highlights. Do you see...

Sweet 'n' tasty

We're now well into January, but the PlayStation Store is yet to wake from its post-Christmas slumber. That's ok, though, because this week is all about quality over quantity – and with Joe Danger 2: The Movie, Fat Princess: Piece of Cake, and, er, Brandish: The Dark Revenant in the pipeline, who could possibly argue? Here's what...

Back to business

We'd only just gotten used to writing '2014' in the title of these articles, so goodness knows how we're going to deal with the New Year. Fortunately, we don't have a whole let else to think about with this particular story, as meaningful content is thin on the ground. With just a handful of new titles available in this North...

Sony Extends PlayStation Plus Subs Due to Xmas PSN Outage

Playing nice

The venom pointed at the PlayStation Network is always at its peak when the service is offline, as everyone tends to go back to their business when functionality is restored. That said, there's no denying that the platform's recent holiday outage was unfortunate, and even though a faction of cyber attackers may be to blame, Sony's come...

Review: Cosmophony (PlayStation 3)

Cosmophony (PlayStation 3)

Hell in a halfpipe

Cosmophony is a rhythmic shooter for the PlayStation 3 which has you guiding a craft as it flies through a wire frame halfpipe packed full of geometric shapes. These are either obstacles to avoid or targets to blast and each of the five stages available are set to a thumping drum and bass soundtrack from French producer and DJ,...
