DriveClub Special Edition Lines Up at Launch in Europe

Podium position

And we’re underway. Gamescom 2014 hasn’t technically started yet, but you didn’t think that you’d have to wait for the news to start rolling, did you? Evolution Studios has taken to the European PlayStation Blog today to announce a DriveClub special edition, which will be available at launch in the Old World from 8th October...

Talking Point: What Are Your Hopes and Fears for PS4 and Vita at Gamescom 2014?

What Are Your Hopes and Fears for PS4 and Vita at Gamescom 2014?

Panic presentations

Every convention comes with a combination of excitement and trepidation. Sony’s always had a decent presence at Gamescom, so we’re expecting nothing less this year – but with the event being livestreamed all around the world, there’s always the worry that it could drop a Powers-esque press conference clanger and let...

Rumour: PS4 Interface Images Show Folders, Improved Trophy Notifications, and More

PS4 Interface Images Show Folders, Improved Trophy Notifications, and More

Sadly, they're probably fake

There’s nothing like a good ol’ fashioned leak to shake you out of a groggy Sunday morning. In truth, this looks fake, so don’t expect it to be officially unveiled at Gamescom 2014 next week – but we kind of wished that it would be. The shots show an enhanced PlayStation 4 user interface, including folders,...

Can't Find a Multiplayer Match in The Last of Us on PS4? This Patch Should Help

Netcode remastered

Naughty Dog may have plotted an almost flawless transition to the PlayStation 4, but it did mess up one aspect of The Last of Us in converting it to Sony’s next-gen console. Since launch, there have been many complaints regarding the title’s multiplayer matchmaking, which functions, but, well, not as well as it should. In...

Music Management Sim BigFest Will Also Headline on PS4

Next-gen encore

We thought that PlayStation Vita music management simulation BigFest was taking an extraordinarily long time to develop – but now we know why. Sony XDev Europe has taken to the PlayStation Blog to confirm that the title – which sees you run a Glastonbury-esque festival from hiring the bands to placing the porta potties – will...

What Does PlayStation Vita Firmware Update 3.18 Do?

As if you need telling

There’ll be no danger of your PlayStation Vita ever tumbling off your coffee table again, as Sony has released a new stability update for the diminutive device. Available right now – and mandatory, we’re afraid – the patch doesn’t appear to change anything about the handheld’s user experience. Speculation...

Something's Coming in Sony's Second Gamescom 2014 Teaser of the Day

An axe to grind

Sony’s in full on hype mode ahead of its Gamescom 2014 press conference next week – it’s just a shame that it’s releasing some pretty poor promotional trailers to lead into the event. Alright, this one isn’t anywhere near as bad as this afternoon’s hypnotherapy session, but two teasers in one day is probably a little bit...

Sony's Gamescom 2014 Teaser Trailers Are Getting Worse

Is this some kind of hypnotherapy?

With the games industry getting ready to descend upon Germany ahead of next week’s Gamescom 2014 convention, Sony is starting to hype up its annual media briefing. A few days ago it deployed a teaser trailer for what appeared to be Until Dawn, but now it’s gone with something a little more vanilla to count down...

Sony: We Want to Make PS4 Players Feel Special

All part of being the best place to play

Sony wants you to feel special for selecting the PlayStation 4 over the handful of other systems on the market. Cheery third-party chief Adam Boyes revealed the tidbit in an interview with Game Informer magazine, pointing to the platform holder’s co-marketing partnership with Bungie’s first-person shooter...

Feature: What Went Wrong with PlayStation Mobile?

What Went Wrong with PlayStation Mobile?

Totally immobile

Sony’s smartphone strategy seemed so, well, smart a few years ago. While the PlayStation Vita was flagging, the format holder appeared to have a long-term plan in PlayStation Mobile – a compartmentalised plaza offering semi-curated content on PlayStation-certified platforms. The idea was to step away from the poor quality...
