A realm reborn

There’s a free Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn trial for PlayStation 4 available as part of this month’s European PlayStation Store update, which has this editor shivering in the corner of a dark room, muttering “must resist” in a deranged fashion. Also up for grabs is Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris, which certainly...

A Lara games to get through

There’s no rest for the wicked, and Lara Croft’s got time for one last crusade before Christmas. The daring diva’s teaming up with a few friends this time, though, with Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris set to revisit the co-operative blueprints laid by Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light a few years ago. The...

PSN Offline as Sony's Servers Are Struck with DDoS Attack

No scheduled maintenance planned

Sony may be basking in the glory of a successful PlayStation Experience showing, but its engineers back home are fighting fires as we type. Right now, the PlayStation Network is facing some connection issues, with Lizard Squad claiming responsibility for the outage. The group has been attacking gaming services for...

Back to business

Wait a minute – today’s big PlayStation birthday bonanza is way too exciting for us to be posting the North American PlayStation Store update like normal, isn’t it? Yes, but we suspect that the majority of you visit this site for the usual gaming news, so we suppose that we better oblige. Here it goes. PS4 Games: The Crew...

Burlap brilliance

LittleBigPlanet 3 finally arrives as part of this week’s European PlayStation Store update – although you’ll have to wait until Friday to play it in the UK. It’s joined by a handful of lower profile titles, including Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions, Aqua Kitty: Milk Mine Defender DX, and the outrageously expensive

Different dimension

A much more condensed North American PlayStation Store update this week, but that doesn’t mean that it isn’t packing some worthwhile additions. Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions is arguably the highlight this time, but Tales from the Borderlands: Episode One – Zer0 Sum has been securing some seriously high review scores, too...

Round up, round up

And in the blink of an eye, that’s the last of the big new releases until The Crew next month. Don’t think that the PlayStation Store’s going to become a barren wasteland in the days leading up to Thanksgiving, though, as Sony is keeping it well supplied with a couple of smaller releases – like the PlayStation 4 version of...

Super love

Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it’s the European PlayStation Store update, which is absolutely bursting with big games. Among the highlights this week are Grand Theft Auto V, Dragon Age: Inquisition, and, er, Rugby 15. Oh alright, maybe not the last one, then – but you get the overarching idea. PlayStation 4: Dragon Age:...

Tiny Troopers: Joint Ops (PlayStation 3)

Military mishap

Tiny Troopers: Joint Ops combines the best features and missions from its mobile counterparts, packaging the popular smartphone series’ first two titles together for PlayStation platforms. Does this port march onto Sony’s systems with success, though – or is it an overpriced clone doing the console rounds? The game definitely...

Ever Wanted to Know Why You Can't Change Your PSN Name?

Shawn Layden to the rescue

The inability of PlayStation Network users to change their online names is undoubtedly one of the most philosophically important dilemmas of the modern age. It feels like a strange and slightly archaic policy, whichever way you slice it. Thankfully, in a recent interview, SCEA president Shawn 'E3 Yawn' Layden explained...

Angry Murray

Costume Quest 2 has arrived just in time for Hallowe’en – on the PlayStation 3 at least. Sigh. Double Fine’s dress-‘em-up is just one of many delayed releases to deploy on the European PlayStation Store this week, with Nidhogg and Pier Solar HD also on the menu. Assassin’s Creed Unity is the obvious highlight, but this...

Dream weaver

Assassin’s Creed Unity isn’t exactly sneaking onto the North American PlayStation Store this week – more crashing into it like a cannon ball. Ubisoft’s latest and (not so) greatest is available now on the PlayStation 4, and it’s being flanked by spin-off Assassin’s Creed Rogue on last-gen hardware. Meanwhile, the toys are...

Viva la revolution

... And in early November, the blockbusters did rise, and they marched onto the PlayStation Store demanding that the innocent people spend their money, with spears and other fearsome instruments poised above their heads. Ahem. Seriously, though, this is where things start to get silly – or amazing – for all three of Sony’s...
