News: PS4, PS3, and Vita Indies Discounted in North American PlayStation Store Flash Sale

PS4, PS3, and Vita Indies Discounted in North American PlayStation Store Flash Sale

Stop press

Don't use your 10 per cent off voucher just yet, as Sony has launched a PlayStation Store Flash Sale in North America to coincide with the promotion. This is live now, and will run until 09:00AM PST on 26th January, so if you pair it with the aforementioned apology offer, you could get some serious bang for your buck this weekend. Who...

This Is What a Slim PS4 Could Look Like, We Suppose

Fake photos emerge

If you ever see a 'leak' on the Internet that pairs an off-screen image with the word 'confidential', then you can be pretty confident that it's a fake. As such, these so-called PlayStation 4 Slim pictures that have been doing the rounds this morning are 99.9 per cent certain to be a hoax – but they still give us something to...

Poll: What Will You Be Spending Your 10 Per Cent PSN Discount On?

What Will You Be Spending Your 10 Per Cent PSN Discount On?

Decisions, decisions

When you really stop and think about it, Sony's "apology" for the PlayStation Network outage over Christmas is a bit of a marketing masterstroke. While the company gets to look like it's doing right by its consumers, we'd be shocked if it didn't see an enormous spike in sales when the offer goes into effect from 09:00AM local...

Opinion: Why You Shouldn't Write Off PS4 Racer DriveClub

Why You Shouldn't Write Off PS4 Racer DriveClub

Back on track

In many ways, Evolution Studios got lucky. DriveClub's launch was an unmitigated disaster, but the developer was able to quietly solve many of the title's issues while a much bigger storm gathered around games like Assassin's Creed Unity. Once that had cleared, the Runcorn-based developer responded with a rain cloud of its own, and...

Sony Bend: Our PS4 Game Is Going to Blow People Away

Will push next-gen system somewhere it's never been before

We've known that Uncharted: Golden Abyss developer Sony Bend has been working on a PlayStation 4 title for some time, but it sounds like the project is about to go into full production. As part of a recruitment feature on Gamasutra, the first-party outfit has revealed a little more about...

You'll Get the Touch, You'll Get the Powers from 10th March

Sony's comic book adaptation nears

You probably won't need a particularly long memory to remember Sony's press conference derailing Powers segment at a recent E3, but you may be pleased to learn that the platform holder has followed through with the project. While Microsoft has already scrapped its entire television division, the Japanese giant's...

Oh No, the Terrible PS4 Themes Have Arrived

Dressed to unimpress

It was only a matter of time, wasn't it? Much like the avatars section, a quick peek in the PlayStation 3's virtual shop will reveal a flood of bad themes, from buttered corn right the way through to crispy bacon. As such, it was inevitable that the awful designs would hit Sony's next-gen device in time – and with today's

Be Prepared for Bloodborne with This PS4 Controls Video

Instructional entertainment

They do trailers a little differently in Japan. While the West is all about attention grabbing set-pieces, the people overseas are much more content to sit through seven minutes of input options. This video, then, will get you up to speed with all of the different DualShock 4 commands on offer in PlayStation 4 exclusive...

These PlayStation Experience Attendees Are Hyped for The Order: 1886 on PS4

Lycan it

While this certainly isn't the worst marketing blunder that we've seen for The Order: 1886 thus far, we don't reckon that it's going to do the PlayStation 4 exclusive any favours. Shot at PlayStation Experience, the embedded video is essentially one of those awful audience reaction trailers that terribad b-movies employ when their budget...

This Is What a Remake of the Worst Jak & Daxter Would Look Like

Panic stations

Not even Naughty Dog likes Jak II: Renegade, and for good reason – it's absolutely atrocious. As such, we're not entirely sure why budding Australian artist Jordan Stewart-Herlihy has decided to remake the divisive second instalment, but his work is still worth sharing – even if the sight of those sliding electrical traps makes us...

Review: Fat Princess: Piece of Cake (PlayStation Vita)

Fat Princess: Piece of Cake (PlayStation Vita)

Royal fumble

You can't have your cake and eat it with free-to-play. The model's non-existent entry fee tends to pave the way for intrusive money making schemes, and in Fat Princess: Piece of Cake, it actually spoils what could be a mighty fine slice of iced sponge. Similar in concept to GungHo's uber-popular Puzzle & Dragons, this regal spin-off...
