Official PlayStation Application Hits The iTunes / Android Marketplace

As previously announced, Sony's launched a free "Official PlayStation Application" for iTunes and Android

SCEE Deploys Enormous Christmas Sale On European PlayStation Store

It's Christmas -- or so the neighbours' irritatingly chirpy festive lights are trying to tell us

Of course, we all know that the best thing about Christmas (aside from it being over) are the ridiculous sales. When else can you get Naughty Bear for £3.99 from GAME? (Don't do it.) Digital sales are probably the best kind because there's no physical stock. Publishers can slash prices however and..

Official PlayStation App Announced For iPhone & Android

Little bit weird this one

Sony's announced a set of official PlayStation Apps for..

PlayStation 3 Browser Gets Awesome New Landing Page, Not Compatible With 720p

We always thought 720p was a super popular screen resolution

Seeing as like only three games actually support the full 1080p resolution (and you know, the difference isn't all that noticeable on average TVs), we assumed there were millions of users worldwide playing their games in 720p. According to Sony's statistics though, only 2% of people using the PlayStation 3's browser are doing so in 720p..

Are Studio Liverpool Working On More Wipeout?

If there's one thing you need to know about us, it's that we love the Wipeout franchise

It's possibly our favourite on PlayStation, special. There's something unique about the games visual style and the culture surrounding it. Wipeout defined PlayStation when it launched in the mid-90s.
