    Open beta on the way

    Hands up if you want to play Uncharted 4: A Thief's End, then? How about giving it a go this very weekend? Yeah, we thought that may pique your interest.

  • Talking Point Why Did We All Tune Out of PlayStation TV?

    Change the channel

    When the PlayStation TV was announced, this author was on holiday. It was poor editorial director Damien McFerran that was left to man the fort during an explosive Tokyo Game Show press conference, which also played host to the reveal of the PlayStation Vita Slim. It was big, big news at the time, with

  • News Sony Switches Off PlayStation TV Shipments in Japan

    Tuned out

    Sony's pushed the power button on PlayStation TV in Japan, with an update on its website stressing that it's no longer shipping the microconsole to local retailers. The failed format is still available from some stores, of course, but the platform holder will not be replenishing inventory once current stocks run out. In other words, it's...

  • News Move Over Power Glove! Sony Patents PlayStation VR Mittens

    Everything else is child's play

    They do say that everything comes full-circle eventually, so if PlayStation VR is merely a next-gen Virtual Boy, then we suppose that it makes sense for Sony to be planning a Power Glove alternative, too. A patent filed by SCEA shortly after the announcement of Project Morpheus in 2014 suggests that the company's at...

  • News Critics' Picks Go Cheap in NA PlayStation Store Sale

    PlayStation Plus subscribers save big

  • News Naughty Dog Started Uncharted 4's Story Again

    Plot changed 100 per cent

    Naughty Dog re-worked Uncharted 4: A Thief's End's story "100 per cent", according to creative director Neil Druckmann. Many of you may remember Amy Hennig's unceremonious exit from the Californian company a few years back; this resulted in the story being re-written, actors changing, and what seemed like an exodus from...

  • News PS4 Fans Are So Mad at PlayStation Plus They're Making Parodies

    Has it really got that bad?

    PlayStation Plus members are fed up of pixel art platformers – even though, y'know, you all just voted Broforce in as one of your March freebies. Nevertheless, so unenthused about the Instant Game Collection is the PlayStation 4 community right now that it's started making parody videos. Cue this "hilarious" take on...

  • News You Can Now Search for PS4 Communities

    No excuses not to join Push Square's now

    Well, then – who says Sony doesn't listen to feedback? The PlayStation 4 communities feature bizarrely launched without a search button last year, meaning that you had to follow a convoluted process to find the groups that you wanted to join. Now, though, the platform holder has added a search button,...

  • News PS4 Remains the Best Place to Play, Says Sony

    Any arguments?

    Sony's dropped a new chest-pumping trailer for Spring 2016, reiterating that the PlayStation 4 remains the best place to play. The clip centres on console exclusive games like Street Fighter V, Uncharted 4: A Thief's End, and MLB 16: The Show, before re-iterating that all Call of Duty: Black Ops III map packs can be played on the...

    Supersonic

The developer said that more details will follow soon, including who it's partnering with and what...

  • News It Hasn't Taken Long for Naughty Dog to Release Another Uncharted 4 Trailer

    Whoops

    In a rather bizarre story earlier today, some Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag concept art managed to pop up in the latest Uncharted 4: A Thief's End trailer. After it was pointed out by a Ubisoft employee, people began to assume that Naughty Dog may have nicked the picture and been caught red handed. As it turns out, that assumption might...

  • News So, Uncharted 4 Has Apparently Stolen Some Assassin's Creed Artwork

    A thief's end

    Hmmmm, what's all this, then? In case you missed it, a new Uncharted 4: A Thief's End trailer was revealed today, and it's really bloody good - so you should go check it out through here. However, good trailer or not, it seems as though developer Naughty Dog may have been, well, a bit naughty. There's a part in the video where the...

  • News Your PlayStation Plus Games for March Have Been Revealed

    Bang for your buck

    Wow, March's PlayStation Plus lineup is looking pretty explosive. Alongside the bombastic Broforce, which was voted into the selection by PlayStation 4 users, you'll be getting the rather good Galak-Z on Sony's newest system. As long as you like blowing things up, that's not too bad, right? Meanwhile, PS3 players can look...

  • News PSN Down For Maintenance Early Next Month

    Don't panic

    Did you read "PSN Down" in the headline and immediately think "not again"? Well we've got good news for you, as Sony's network hasn't taken another tumble offline - at least, not as far as we're aware. No, this is actually just a quick heads up that the service will be undergoing maintenance early next month. On the 2nd March, the...

    New story trailer sizzles

  • News PlayStation VR's Price and Release Date May Be Incoming

    Save the date

    With both the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive already (extortionately) priced, all eyes are on Sony and its PlayStation VR headset. Fortunately, we may be learning a little more about the accessory imminently, as the platform holder is inviting press to a special event on 15th March in San Francisco. The date coincides with the Game...

  • News Sony's Teasing an Uncharted 4 Reveal This Afternoon

    More valuable than gold

    Get your tickets ready, because the hype train is about to leave the station. Kicking things off over on Twitter, the official PlayStation account has teased some sort of Uncharted 4: A Thief's End reveal that's happening later this afternoon. How exciting. Whatever's coming our way, it'll blast onto the 'net at 14:00PM...

  • Book Review Console Wars - A Sony, Nintendo, and SEGA Love Triangle

    Serious business

    Console wars have a bad name. We're not condoning the craziness that occurs on social media and message boards from time to time, but there's a competitive edge to any industry that can be entertaining when viewed from the inside – and video games are no different. Console Wars, a fly-on-the-wall insight into the skirmish for...

  • News PlayStation VR Will Dominate Space if Less Than $500, Says Pachter

    But will it be?

    While there are three different high-profile virtual reality headsets scheduled to launch this year, it doesn't feel like they're necessarily in competition. That's not to say that Sony, HTC, and Oculus don't want you to buy their own particular solution, but the trio of manufacturers seem to be acutely aware that their biggest...

  • News Your PS4 PlayStation Plus Freebie for March Has Been Decided

    Bromance

    Hell yeah, bro, one of your PlayStation Plus titles for March has been decided by democracy. The most recent Vote to Play poll has just come to a close, and the winner is somewhat unsurprising, considering that it's been comfortably in the lead since voting began. In case you missed it, the three titles vying for your vote were Assault...

  • News Watch Five Seconds of Every PSone Game Released in the US

    Are you sitting comfortably?

    How's this for a trip down memory lane? To celebrate the 20th Anniversary of PlayStation – a celebration that we must stress seems to be lasting a decade – Game Rave TV has compiled five seconds of footage from every PSone game released at US retail. It's a gigantic hunk of a video weighing in at over two hours, so...

  • Feature Happy 4th Birthday, PlayStation Vita

    Yes, it's still here

    Four years ago today, on the 22nd February 2012, Sony bestowed upon the Western world its newest handheld gaming system: the PlayStation Vita. Originally marketed as something of a home console in the palm of your hands, it's safe to say that the sleek little machine hasn't quite lived up to its potential - but for once, we're...

  • News PS4 Architect Mark Cerny Proves His Genius By Platinuming The Witness

    Are you on the same intellectual plane?

    Anyone who earns the Platinum in Jonathan Blow's brilliant The Witness deserves an honorary PhD. Mark Cerny, the architect behind the PlayStation 4, is the latest to 100 per cent the release, following in the footsteps of our very own Simon Fitzgerald. Better order the gowns, guys – it's graduation time...

  • News The Walking Dead: Michonne Passes on Platinum Trophy

    Pot luck

    Those of you hoping to swell the size of your Trophy cabinet with another easy Telltale Platinum may be disappointed to learn that mini-series The Walking Dead: Michonne will ship without a silvery-blue pot. As with previous entries in the series, you'll earn trinkets for working your way through the story, but the three episode runtime was...

  • News So, That Other VR Headset Will Cost You $800

    Ouch

    This story's not really PlayStation related, but it's relevant to the virtual reality discussion, so we're just putting it out there: HTC's Vive will retail for a cool $799.99 when it starts shipping in April 2016. Assuming that you've got enough kidneys to sell, pre-orders will begin at 10:00AM ET on 29th February. This obviously makes the...

  • News Bloodborne Art Book Will Keep You Awake at Night

    Hunter's dream

    Bloodborne has one of the most consistently grotesque gothic art styles that can be found on the PlayStation 4, but if you want to explore the warped imaginations of the From Software design team that brought it all to life, then this official art book may be for you. It's currently available for pre-order on
