Dalton tries not to die

Until Dawn has been one of 2015's biggest sleeper hits, and has proved particularly popular on sites like Twitch.

#4TheFappers

We all like to twiddle our joysticks for entertainment – but when it comes to the PlayStation 4, the majority of us have our hands firmly on the DualShock 4. One saucy shopper had a very different piece of equipment between his fingers, though – as he was caught choking the chicken in front of the console in an electronics store...

PS4 Is Reeling in First-Person Shooter Fans, Says Sony

Switching sides

While games like Call of Duty always sold well on the PlayStation 3, it was never truly considered the home of the franchise. A combination of the controller and PlayStation Network really prevented Sony from making any meaningful in-roads in the first-person shooter space. The platform holder has made it a mission to change that...

Life in Push Square Towers revolves around sifting through the shite in press releases and proof reading dozens of articles a day, so we're definitely jealous of this particular PlayStation 4 player's daily routine.

Play and peace

Sony hosted another press conference overnight – but this one definitely wasn't intended for the Western market.

Er, Avatars Are Coming to the PS4's PlayStation Store Next Week

Yay?

If we were Sony, we wouldn't have publicised this. Almost two years after the system's launch, you'll be able to buy non-stock avatars from the PlayStation 4 version of the PlayStation Store.

Sony Doesn't Want to Show You Too Much of The Last Guardian

It'll spoil it, apparently

The Last Guardian has gone dark again. The game was re-revealed to a rapturous response at E3 2015, but it was absent at both the Tokyo Game Show and Paris Games Week.
