PlayStation Now Streams to UK Shores This Spring

Register for the private beta now

It's already grim here in muggy old England, but things are about to get a lot more cloudy.

Watch a Japanese Actor Desperately Try to Survive in PS4 Exclusive Bloodborne 

Just believe

From what we can tell, this newest Japanese promotion for upcoming action role-playing game Bloodborne sees celebrities tackle the tough-as-nails title for our entertainment. Better them than us, we say. It's up to Nobuaki Kaneko, an actor and apparently a rock drummer, to survive an early segment of the game, and surprisingly, he...

The Last Guardian Lives to See Yet Another Day

Yawn

Fumito Ueda, creator of PlayStation classics like ICO and Shadow of the Colossus, must be seriously fed up. If we roll our eyes at every piece of vague The Last Guardian information these days, imagine what it must be like having worked on the title for almost a decade. We suspect that he's sick of the sight of that darned cat bird creature –...

PS4 Exclusive Everybody's Gone to the Rapture Slow Walks Through Shropshire

Village people

It's a bit odd watching this 13 minute video for Everybody's Gone to the Rapture just a few weeks after The Order: 1886 was panned. Don't get us wrong, Ready at Dawn's debut PlayStation 4 release had bigger problems than prolonged walking segments – but this slow shuffle through Shropshire doesn't look particularly riveting, does...

PlayStation Plus Won't Be Needed for PS4 Multiplayer This Weekend

Free to play

Sony's latched onto an incredible revenue stream with PlayStation Plus, but it's got to lock people into the subscription service to keep the cash flowing. It's already doing a decent job of that by giving away great games on a monthly basis as part of the membership, but it's also trying to show people what they're missing by holding...

Some People Are Already Getting Battered by Bloodborne on PS4

An early beating

From Software's hotly anticipated PlayStation 4 exclusive Bloodborne has already started to sink its claws into some (un)lucky gamers, as retailers in Toronto have begun selling the game early. Posting on the PlayStation Trophies forum, user rmchiva925 proudly uploaded some shots of his copy, which isn't due out until next week...

Is Port Specialist Bluepoint Working on an Uncharted Collection for PS4?

Master Thief Collection

Even we're starting to get sick of PlayStation 4 re-releases now, but we'd happily put aside our port fatigue for an Uncharted Collection on Sony's latest machine. There have been rumours regarding upgraded versions of Nathan Drake's previous escapades for a while now, and with sequel Uncharted 4: A Thief's End delayed, it'

PS4 Exclusive Bloodborne's Launch Trailer Will Send a Shiver Down Your Spine

Title also goes gold

Brrrr - did anyone else feel that chill? No? Well you might after watching Bloodborne's launch trailer. With the game just under two weeks away, we can practically smell the iron. Bloodborne's producer thinks that shields might be 'crap' Featuring some rather nightmarish imagery and a good lump of gameplay, we reckon that the...

This Bloodborne PS4 Is Sadly Not for Sale

But it should be

There are so many personalised PlayStation 4s available in Japan that it's hard to keep count, but this Bloodborne console is a real museum piece. Sony was flaunting the one-of-a-kind system in Japan earlier today, where it held a special event for From Software's forthcoming foray. The game's now gone gold, by the way...

The Order: 1886 Is Pushed Aside by Dying Light and Dragon Ball XenoVerse in February's PSN Charts

The undead won't die

Despite launching back in January, zombie hack-'em-up Dying Light managed to hold onto the top sales spot on the North American PlayStation Store through February. While there wasn't much new to see on the PS3 and Vita fronts, with Minecraft, Grand Theft Auto V, and Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment all sitting pretty, the PS4...

Why Will PS4 Firmware Update 2.50 Restrict Trophy Removal to Titles at 0 Per Cent?

"It's the only way to maintain the sanctity of Trophies"

If you're a smidgen obsessive compulsive like this particular editor, then you'll hate having any Trophies on your profile that aren't at 100 per cent. Given that the majority of Platinum Trophies require 30 hour days to achieve, however, your humble host has had to get used to the idea of...
