LittleBigPlanet Smashes 7 Million Stages Milestone

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

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...

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...

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...

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...

Japanese Sales Charts: White Vita Boosts Numbers

Woah ho ho ho

The release of the crystal white PlayStation Vita in Japan didn’t do a lot to improve the ailing system’s sales, but it did push the platform back above the 22k units threshold. The handheld was actually the second best selling console of the week, with Nintendo’s 3DS way out in the lead. Pokémon continued its rule of the...

4th July 2012 (Europe)

Over the rainbow moon

It’s a fairly light week in terms of new PlayStation Network content for Europe. SideQuest Studios' ambitious strategy RPG Rainbow Moon leads the charge, and is joined by the Game of the Year edition of Dead Island and digital board game conversion Dungeon Twister. Sadly, there’s no sign of The Walking Dead: Episode 2 just...

3rd July 2012 (North America)

Be brave

It’s a big week for retail releases on the North American PlayStation Store, with no less than six full Blu-ray games squished down into digestible digital form. Spec Ops: The Line leads the charge, while The Adventures of TinTin and Sonic Generations hop along for the ride. Native PSN releases include Bellator MMO Onslaught and

Sony Announces Duo of New PSP Titles for Kids

Licensed fun

Believe it or not, the PSP continues to sell reasonably well in pockets of Europe. Games such as Invizimals have given the handheld a new lease of life amongst younger users, and Sony’s hoping to capitalise on that with the announcement of a duo of new children’s focused games. First up is Phineas and Ferb: Across the Second...

Japanese Sales Charts: PlayStation Vita Dips Again

Boing boing

Last week’s exceptional PlayStation Vita performance was a one-off it seems. With the excitement surrounding Persona 4: The Golden now restored to a reasonable level, the handheld plunged to just 13k units. Not horrific, but far from exceptional either. One hypothesis for the Vita’s relatively sluggish week centres on the imminent...
