You'll Be Getting Tons of Free DLC with PS4 Exclusive DriveClub

Tracks, cars, features

Ever since its announcement approximately 18 months ago, Evolution Studios has pitched DriveClub as an ever evolving package, rather than a traditional game. Now, less than four weeks away from release, the Runcorn-based developer has outlined the title’s post-launch content schedule – and it’s pretty impressive to see...

PS4 May Not Be At the Foot of the Japanese Hardware Charts for Much Longer

There's a new flop in town

Japan may still be considered something of a gaming mecca among some, but its importance in the console space is slowly declining.

Sony: We're Treating Destiny Like a First-Party Release

Platform holder going hard on Bungie's next big thing

Wow, the PlayStation 4 Is Utterly on Fire in the UK

Stores would stick Sony’s latest releases right to the back of their video game sections, and newspaper promotions would always...

Themes Aren't Just Coming to PS4, They're Coming to Vita, Too

Not bad

There's no doubt that the PlayStation 4 is in desperate need of some customisation options, but the PS Vita, meanwhile, is actually doing okay in that regard. The system allows you to group and move content around via its touchscreen, and you're able to set any photo that you have saved on the console as a background. Nevertheless, Sony's...
