Yes, Sony's Readying an Official Grand Theft Auto V PS4 Bundle

This is how you print money

Even the most ardent fan would find it hard to argue with the momentum that Microsoft seemingly has in November, between co-marketing deals on Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare and Assassin’s Creed Unity, as well as its own exclusive games. However, there was always going to be one wildcard in the pre-Christmas battle:...

Doesn't it always?

As is the case with any upcoming industry event, gamers are currently whipping themselves into a major frenzy over the PlayStation Experience event.

News: DriveClub Developer to Roll Out New Game Update to Improve Online Issues

DriveClub Developer to Roll Out New Game Update to Improve Online Issues

"We're working around the clock"

Even though DriveClub’s issues are slowly edging into ‘unacceptable’ territory as far as we’re concerned, we suppose that developer Evolution Studios does at least deserve credit for providing updates on the game’s progress every 24 hours. That’s surely something, right? Sigh. Seriously, though, the...

Are You Good Enough? The PlayStation League Launches This Week in Spain

Gaming just got serious

Venture into any video game message board, and you’ll realise that people already take this industry way too seriously.

Weirdness: What if the PS4 Was a Really Nifty Laptop?

What if the PS4 Was a Really Nifty Laptop?

Forget your MacBook Air

There are people that don’t have much spare time – and others that have way too much. One such talented individual is Ed Zarick, a self-taught engineer who may have abnormal amounts of free time, but is at least putting it to good use. Having previously designed the Xbook – a portable Xbox 360 for those out of the...

What Kind of Levels Are Being Made in the LittleBigPlanet 3 Beta?

Play, create, stare

There’s no doubt that LittleBigPlanet campaigns are always entertaining, but the series’ real longevity comes from its user generated content. Boot up any one of Sackboy’s previous outings – barring, perhaps, black sheep LittleBigPlanet Karting – and we guarantee that you’ll be blown away by some of the levels created...

News: You Won't Be Doing Much Video Streaming on PlayStation TV

You Won't Be Doing Much Video Streaming on PlayStation TV

Turn off

Sony may want to check that it’s not breaking any advertising standards here, as the PlayStation TV seems like a pretty poor video streaming system. Back at E3 2014 earlier in the year, a laborious Shawn Layden monologue mentioned that the diminutive device would host plenty of “video and music streaming services”. As it turns out,...

No Fair! Japan's Getting The Unfinished Swan on PS4 and Vita Next Week

Still not finished, apparently

You may recall a rumour that was floating about the internet late last year which suggested that PlayStation 3 classic The Unfinished Swan would be recklessly flinging paint onto the PlayStation 4. The speculations were soon shot down, but we've kept our fingers crossed ever since. Apparently all our appendage-based...

Killzone: Mercenary Prepares for PlayStation TV with Patch

Show stopper

We’re not entirely sure why Sony’s opted to delay the PlayStation TV for a month in Europe, but those of you in North America will be able to wrap your hands around the nifty little microconsole starting from tomorrow. And in order to celebrate that momentous occasion, Guerrilla Cambridge has deployed a timely patch for Killzone:...

DriveClub Dev Considering Compensation Options for Disastrous Launch

Company had 'confidence' in servers

DriveClub actually performed pretty well in this week’s UK sales charts update, meaning that the racer sold reasonably at retail. That makes its launch issues all the more problematic, because, potentially, thousands of people are stuck with a game that doesn’t work as advertised. This has prompted game...

Snow Joke! Standalone White PS4 Coming to UK Next Week

Winter wonderbox

Personally, we quite like the idea of all of our home entertainment appliances being the same colour (black), but if you don’t suffer from a pesky case of OCD, then you may be tempted by the white PlayStation 4 console. Previously, this was only available alongside Destiny or DriveClub, but, as promised by Worldwide Studios...
