What Are December 2014's Free PlayStation Plus Games?

Christmas cheer

Thanksgiving is right around the corner for our American readers, but we suspect that the quality of December’s forthcoming PlayStation Plus update will determine just how thankful we’re all feeling come tomorrow morning. Silliness aside, Sony has unveiled this month’s free game refresh a little earlier than usual, presumably...

First Impressions: Enlisting in The Tomorrow Children, PS4's Great Social Experiment

Enlisting in The Tomorrow Children, PS4's Great Social Experiment

Off to work we go

The Tomorrow Children is the type of title that you’d only ever find on PlayStation. We’re not referring to the fact that Sony’s footing the bill of this Q-Games developed curiosity – or the vaguely disingenuous PR sound bites that tend to filter out of first-party outfits from time-to-time – but the mere notion that...

PS4 Exclusive The Order: 1886 Has More Than Pretty Visuals

All about that bass

As our very own Graham Banas will inform you, there’s more to a game’s presentation than its looks. Sound is something that often goes underappreciated in this visual driven industry, but it’s the glue that holds everything together. Seeing as The Order: 1886 is aiming to be the complete cinematic experience, then, its...

Injustice, Secret Ponchos, and Hitman Headline December's PlayStation Plus Lineup

Deadly Premonition, Titan Attacks, and more up for grabs

After some pretty strong criticism last month, Sony’s got a much better PlayStation Plus lineup prepared for December. The platform holder already pre-emptively announced the PlayStation 4 titles, but just in case you missed them, you’ll be able to download Injustice: Gods Among Us and

Oops, Sony Will Be Compensating Vita Early Adopters for Misleading Marketing

Never stop paying

You may recall that a few years back, Sony was embroiled in a legal minefield over its marketing of the PlayStation Vita. If you're interested, and have a head for legal mumbo-jumbo, you can take a look at the US Federal Trade Commission's original charges through here. For the rest of you, though, the basic gist is that the...

David Jaffe's New Game Will Be Revealed at PlayStation Experience

God of War maker returns

We knew that David Jaffe wouldn’t be able to stay away for long. The veteran PlayStation employee – who’s behind some of the platform holder’s biggest properties, including God of War and Twisted Metal – looks set to reveal his latest project at Sony’s forthcoming PlayStation Experience fan event. Of course, th

There Are Only Ten of These Knack Statues in the World

Cerny you want one

Incredibly, it’s been a year since Knack first attacked the PlayStation 4 as a launch title – and in order to commemorate the occasion, Japan Studio has prepared ten ultra-rare statues, which will be given away at Sony’s forthcoming PlayStation Experience event. The trophy itself shows the titular hero standing alongside...

Five Reasons Why You Should Buy a PS4 This Holiday

Perfect moment

We’re often guilty of forgetting that not everyone owns a PlayStation 4 yet. While there’s no doubt that Sony’s next-gen system has raced out of the gates like an American shopper looking for a decent deal on Black Friday, the Japanese giant has only shipped a total of 13.5 million units to date. That means that

Listen to This Gorgeous Acapella Cover of The Last of Us' Main Theme

Clicker along

While much praise is lavished over the gameplay and story of Naughty Dog's survival horror opus The Last of Us, comparatively little is said about its soundtrack. Indeed, the harrowing melodies composer Gustavo Santaolalla created for the game go a long way to making it the memorable and emotional experience that it is. Thankfully,...

Big Blockbusters Sell Best on the PlayStation 4 in the UK

Grand Theft Auto V and Far Cry 4 perform strongest on Sony's system

The previous generation was a long one for Sony, so we suspect that it’s starting to enjoy being back on top again. While the PlayStation 4 has been performing outrageously well all year in the UK, the next-gen device confirmed its status as the King of Consoles this week by...

News: PS4 Exclusive The Order: 1886 to Secure New Gameplay at PlayStation Experience

PS4 Exclusive The Order: 1886 to Secure New Gameplay at PlayStation Experience

London's calling

Let’s be honest: Sony’s done a pretty terrible job promoting forthcoming PlayStation 4 exclusive The Order: 1886 so far. After an impressive unveiling, the company’s recycled a pretty bland demo, which has been doing the rounds at virtually every gaming convention under the sun for months now. Even developer

Ooh Matron! This PS4 Remote Play Ad Is All a Bit Saucy

Carry on playing

Don’t take your temperature after watching this bizarre Belgian commercial for the PlayStation 4 and Vita, as there may be some inaccuracies in the results that you record. It would appear that Sony hasn't forgotten about its portable platform in Europe – and is quite literally, ahem, bringing out the big guns to help sell the...
