News: Season's Greetings from PlayStation's Premium Developers

Season's Greetings from PlayStation's Premium Developers

They wish you a Merry Christmas

Christmas wouldn't be the same without more greetings cards than you know what to do with. Waltzing wintery streets with a square of cardboard that won't fit in your pocket is what the holidays are all about, so it kind of makes sense for game developers to acknowledge their fans with bits and pieces of custom art...

Post Pictures of Your PlayStation Pressies

"OMG! It's a PlayStation 4"

Christmas is a time of sharing, seasonal goodwill, and – let's be honest – plenty of presents. As you read this, we're guessing that there's a carpet of discarded wrapping paper beneath your feet, and an infectious grin plastered upon your face. The question is: which gift prompted your Nintendo 64 moment this year,...

PS4 Exclusive The Order: 1886 Wishes You a Silent Night

Panic on the streets of London

Sony's done a pretty terrible job of promoting The Order: 1886 so far, but this brand new Christmas trailer has really got us in the mood. Set to a haunting rendition of Silent Night, the seasonal clip shows off several unseen sequences from the game – and the imagery in the video really suits the harrowing audio...

Sony's Got One Last PS4, PS3, and Vita Sale in Store for the US PlayStation Store

Cheap and cheerful

You sleep when you die is the mantra that Sony appears to be living by. Despite the holidays being in full swing at this point, the platform holder has launched a final Flash Sale on the US PlayStation Store, which includes a handful of deals on all of the manufacturer's main machines. Highlights include Destiny for $44.99, Dragon...

Sony's Cancelled Movie The Interview Is Out Now, But Not on PSN Yet

Called back

We know that companies change their minds all of the time, but this is insane. Sony previously said that it had no intention of ever releasing The Interview, but it's swiftly reversed that decision, and deployed the controversial flick – a day before its originally intended launch date. Clearly sensing dollar signs from all of the free...

Sony Brings Glad Tidings with Bumper PS4, PS3, Vita EU Sale

Shop 'til you drop

Ho ho ho – and a very Merry Christmas to you. You didn't think that Sony was done celebrating the season with that abysmal 12 Deals of Christmas countdown, did you? Good, because the platform holder has announced its January sale on the PlayStation Blog today, which is set to run through 24th December and into the New Year for...

This UK PS4 Bundle Comes with Four Blockbuster Games

How low can you go?

It's not even Boxing Day yet, but UK retailer GAME is already breaking out the big guns. Despite being historically expensive, the specialist store has been pretty competitive in the hardware space of late – and this £349.99 uber-bundle is one of the best that we've seen so far. It looks like Santa will be arriving early for...

Far Cry 4 and Freedom Wars Scale Final EU Christmas Sale

And that's the end of that

Like the big box perched under your Christmas tree, Sony's big 12 Deals of Christmas initiative promised so much – only to serve up a slew of, frankly, underwhelming offers. The platform holder has put the lid on things today, announcing that for the next 48 hours, Far Cry 4 will be available for as low as £39.99 on...

News: Actually, PS4 Had the Most Great Games This Year

Actually, PS4 Had the Most Great Games This Year

Don't shoot the messenger

There's an image from Nintendo doing the rounds that claims that the Wii U had the most great games this year. It uses a combination of Metascore and user score from aggregation website Metacritic to draw its conclusion, which struck us as an unusual fusion of information. Perhaps this is because the aforementioned...

Uncharted 4: A Thief's End Avoids the Uncanny Valley on PS4

Nate awaits

Just how good is Nathan Drake going to look in PlayStation 4 exclusive Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End? Well, if these high-resolution character model images released by Naughty Dog are anything to go by, pretty bloomin’ amazing. The first shot shows a close-up of the protagonist’s rugged face, complete with pimples, pock marks, and...

PS4's Price Drops to $329 at Walmart Ahead of the Holidays

Ready! Fight

Whether this is a case of Walmart trying to drive foot traffic to its stores, or Sony realising that it needs to respond if it wants to maintain its dwindling North American lead, the PlayStation 4 has dropped to $329.00 at the aforementioned outlet. It looks like all of the stock has been allocated at this point, but we figured that...

The Last of Us 2 Will Explore the Depths of Despair on PS4

Ex-employee outs forthcoming exclusive

The Last of Us was not only a critical smash, but it was also a gigantic commercial success for Sony, moving over seven million copies on the PlayStation 3 alone. Naughty Dog was probably always going to have to build some form of sequel, then – and if the Linked In profile of one soon-to-be very sheepish...

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...
