Get Festive with the PS4's Best Multiplayer Games This Holiday

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. Some of us like to snuggle up with an engrossing single player story, a world away from the freezing cold air outside, but we reckon that it's worth considering a more social approach this winter. Indeed, the...

Opinion: Why Sony Will Drop the PS4's Price if Necessary

Why Sony Will Drop the PS4's Price if Necessary

Loss leader

Sony is not in the best of shape. It’s a fact that gamers appear to be fixated on, as the firm shuffles from one red number to the next. With a flagging television business and an increasingly irrelevant cellphone arm, the PlayStation 4 is one of the few products in the Japanese giant

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 May Not Have Enough PS4 Stock in Europe This Holiday

Sell out

Regular readers may recall our obsession with PlayStation 4 stock last Christmas. Sony’s next-gen system was a smash hit at launch, and we were busy scouting out UK and US stores in order to provide you with as much information as possible on fresh supply.

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. The platform holder has teamed up with a slew of American retailers in order to prepare some last minute PlayStation 4 bundles, and they’re pretty decent if you’re in the market for a machine. Amazon’s offer...

PS4 Surpasses One Million Unit Milestone in France

Pour les joueurs

There’s no doubt that the French appreciate the finer things; snails, frogs’ legs, and now the PlayStation 4 are all an important part of the nation’s daily life. Writing on Twitter earlier today, PlayStation France confirmed that the next-gen console has now exceeded one million units in the region, making it the third...

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...

Bloodborne's New Randomly Generated Dungeons Look Ridiculously Difficult

A roguish roguelike

As promised earlier in the week, we've been treated to a slew of shiny screenshots of upcoming PlayStation 4 exclusive Bloodborne, and boy howdy does it look good. These particular snaps show off the Chalice Dungeon, a horrifying new feature which has been created specifically for the chronically masochistic. Put simply,

Weirdness: Sony Yanks The Interview Amid Intensifying Threats

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. The firm announced yesterday that it’s ditching all 25th December release plans for its latest flick The Interview, after a hacking group named the...

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...

Chill Out with LittleBigPlanet 3's Frozen Costume Pack for PS4, PS3

Pretty cool

Despite its name indicating otherwise, Frozen is hot stuff right now, so it’s no surprise to see Sony team up with Disney to launch a selection of LittleBigPlanet 3 costumes based upon the ridiculously popular feature film. Available as part of this week’s PlayStation Store update, you’ll be able to dress Sackboy up as Elsa,...

10 PlayStation Gifts That Need to Be on Your Christmas List

Stocking fillers

We were going to produce a bog-standard buyer’s guide this Christmas, but we figured that we’d be re-treading old ground. After all, you can peruse what we think is hot on PlayStation courtesy of our nifty games page, and chances are you already have an idea what software you’d like Santa to lug down your chimney anyway...

Giggle Through Eight Minutes of PS4 Horror Until Dawn

Turn off the TV

Until Dawn received a rapturous response at PlayStation Experience last week. While the jury may still have been out on this David Cage-esque survival horror escapade, any concerns seemed to fade away with the spontaneous crowd engagement during Sony’s keynote. At the conference, though, we only got to see a couple of minutes of...

You'll Be Hearing More About PS4 Exclusive Bloodborne's New Enemies Soon

Christmas comes early

Christmas may be the most wonderful time of the year, but it also happens to be one of the slowest when it comes to video game news. All of the major events have already happened, and all of the major games have already released, which leaves us in the unenviable and peculiar position of not always having material to cover...
