The Last of Us 2 Will Explore the Depths of Despair on PS4

Ex-employee outs forthcoming exclusive

The Last of Us was not only a critical smash, but it was also a gigantic commercial success for Sony, moving over seven million copies on the PlayStation 3 alone. Naughty Dog was probably always going to have to build some form of sequel, then – and if the Linked In profile of one soon-to-be very sheepish...

PS4's Price Drops to $329 at Walmart Ahead of the Holidays

Ready! Fight

Whether this is a case of Walmart trying to drive foot traffic to its stores, or Sony realising that it needs to respond if it wants to maintain its dwindling North American lead, the PlayStation 4 has dropped to $329.00 at the aforementioned outlet.

Quality time

The holidays are almost here, and for many of you reading this, that means a lot of free time to fill with gaming goodness.

PS4 Exclusive The Order: 1886 Attracts the Worst Trailers

And this one's particularly bad

It’s a good thing that The Order: 1886’s premise is so strong, because Sony’s done a pretty atrocious job of selling Ready at Dawn’s inaugural PlayStation 4 project so far. This brand new video produced by Sony Japan attempts to spoof a BBC News broadcast – but ends up looking like a high school student’s...

Sony's Fighting Back with Some Big US PS4 Bundles

Cut price consoles

Sony got its ass kicked in the last NPD report – but it doesn’t seem especially keen on taking another beating.

Review: Resogun (PlayStation Network - Vita)

Resogun (PlayStation Network - Vita)

Pocket rocket

Housemarque’s cylindrical shooter Resogun is still one of the major highlights in the PlayStation 4’s library. Its simplistic mechanics epitomise the very idea of pick-up-and-play, while its flashy visuals and smooth performance make it something of a showcase for Sony’s next-gen hardware. The title’s oft-requested PlayStation...

Sony Yanks The Interview Amid Intensifying Threats

Firm has no plans for future release

We’re pretty sure that only Sony could spend approximately $40 million on a movie that has to be scrapped a week before release because of intensifying threats.

Wait, the PS4's Not Dead in Japan After All?

Signs of life

With smartphones and dedicated handhelds ruling the roost in Japan, it’s been a difficult first year for the PlayStation 4 in its home nation. While the device definitely hasn’t flopped in Sony’s domestic territory, it’s struggled to make its mark, with multiformat titles selling better on the PlayStation 3 – and the next-gen...
