Final Fantasy III Completes Your Digital Collection Next Week

Catch 'em all

For a franchise wearing the name Final Fantasy, there sure are a lot of entries in the series. Most of those titles are available from the PlayStation Network – but there’s been one major omission for some time now. That’s set to be rectified next week, when Final Fantasy III travels onto the North American digital storefront...

God Eater 2 Bursts onto PlayStation Vita Next Year

Hearty appetite

The Tokyo Game Show has already got off to stellar start for Sony – and, perhaps most importantly, the PlayStation Vita. Publisher Namco Bandai has announced that it will be bringing the Monster Hunter-esque God Eater 2 to the platform holder's new handheld next year. Players will be able to choose between the PSP or Vita versions,...

Vita Firmware v1.80 Adds Touch Controls to PSP Games

New ways to play

The PlayStation Vita’s latest firmware update comes bundled with a bevy of hidden features. Amongst them is the ability to assign touch controls to PSP games. We’re not quite sure what the purpose of this addition is, but we suppose someone will find a use for it. After all, more options are always better than less. You can...

PES 2013 Scores Champions League Themed Metallic Cover

Prestigious

Pre-orders of PES 2013 in North America will come with a UEFA Champions League metallic cover, publisher Konami has revealed. We suppose it’s a bit strange for Europe’s premier club competition to be featured on the front of a US release, but we suspect that anyone buying PES in North America will be familiar with the competition. If...

PES 2013 Secures Licensed Brazilian Teams

Hooray?

Who cares about the Premier League, La Liga and Serie A when you’ve got 20 officially licensed Brazilian teams? That’s the positive attitude Konami’s being forced to adopt for PES 2013, noting that the addition of teams like Corinthians and São Paulo helps to create “the most authentic soccer experience available on the market”...

Dreams can come true

Anyone that’s contributed to LittleBigPlanet’s gigantic 7 million stage roster should give themselves a humongous pat on the back. Go on, get on with it – we’ll wait. Feeling all warm and fuzzy inside? Good, let’s continue. Media Molecule’s revealed on its official blog that the milestone was reached just as

Store Update: 1st August 2012 (Europe)

1st August 2012 (Europe)

Slow and steady

It’s another disappointing week on the European PlayStation Store, with very little to shout about. A demo for Activision’s upcoming Transformers: Fall of Cybertron leads the line, while there’s also the arrival of, er, Rock of Ages and Puddle to look forward to. Let’s-a-go...

Store Update: 31st July 2012 (North America)

31st July 2012 (North America)

Entirely expendable

There’s not a lot to shout about in this week’s North American PlayStation Store update. Ubisoft’s The Expendables 2 tie-in is the biggest new addition, launching Sony’s latest PSN Play initiative. Other arrivals include popular PS2 title War of the Monsters and Growlanser: Wayfarer of Time on PSP. An “unforeseen...

Japanese Sales Charts: PSP Hits a Home Run

Out of the park

There are eight PSP titles on this week’s Japanese sales chart. The ageing handheld proved that there's still life in its elderly legs by outpacing the Vita by a few thousand units. We’re not sure whether that’s a sign of the PSP’s continued relevance, or the dismal state of Sony's latest platform. Still, despite the sheer...

25th July 2012 (Europe)

Brave new world

There’s not a great deal of new arrivals on the European PlayStation Store this week, but quality always trumps quantity. Fresh additions include Disney Pixar’s Brave, LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes and Foosball 2012. The latter is available on both PS3 and Vita for a single fee. Elsewhere, Sony’s searched through the back...

God Eater 2 Is Still in Development for PSP

Yup

It’s been a while since we last got a look at Namco Bandai’s Monster Hunter-inspired handheld sequel, God Eater 2. Many assumed that the title had switched platforms to Vita (or 3DS), but according to a feature in this week’s Famitsu magazine, it’s still in development for PSP. There have been a few changes since the game’s last...

Sony Shuts Down More Classic Online Servers

Unplugged

If you’re still actively engaged in the Eye of Judgment Legends' online multiplayer community, then you might want to think about saying goodbye to your fellow competitors. Following that, we recommend booking an appointment with your local doctor, because you clearly have serious entertainment taste issues. Sony has announced that...

Japanese Sales Charts: Vita Struggles Once Again

Treading water

The PlayStation Vita sold just 11k units in Japan last week, despite a minor resurgence the period prior. The release of the crystal white hardware variation had catapulted the relatively new system beyond recent disappointment, but with no new notable titles on the horizon, the portable plummeted back towards below-par pastures. To...

Magic: The Gathering Apparates Atop June's PSN Charts

Under the spell

It turns out that people are still rather fond of card games. Sony has announced that the wordy Magic: The Gathering – Duels of the Planeswalkers 2013 was summoned to the top of the PlayStation Network sales charts in June. The enchanted title beat out continued competition from Telltale’s massively popular The Walking Dead...
