What the Heck Is a PocketStation?

Lifting the lid on Japan's best PlayStation accessory

Back in the mists of time, when Tamagotchi was still a thing and we were all wondering if SEGA’s Dreamcast was really going to turn things around for the ailing hardware company, Sony took the Sonic the Hedgehog maker's new Visual Memory Unit concept – a portable memory card with a built-in...

Shuhei Yoshida Doesn't Understand People Who Don't Like Indie Games

Neither do we

If the last two E3s are anything to go by, Sony's continued efforts to court indie developers are paying off. What's more, the Japanese giant seems pretty chuffed with this outcome, as Worldwide Studios president Shuhei Yoshida stated in a recent interview. "Almost every week you see an indie game coming out digitally on PS4. Some of...

Just About Every Japanese Game You Can Think of Has Been Discounted in This Massive EU PSN Sale

Gifts from the East

Fancy nabbing some great Japanese games for your PlayStation 3 or Vita? Kicking off today in Europe, the PlayStation Store is discounting a frankly ridiculous amount of Eastern titles.

Talking Point: Should More Games Emulate PS4 Exclusive inFAMOUS: Second Son's Photo Mode?

Should More Games Emulate PS4 Exclusive inFAMOUS: Second Son's Photo Mode?

Say cheese

You could never accuse Seattle-based first-party studio Sucker Punch of not listening to its fans. Many berated the first entry in its superhero series inFAMOUS for the obnoxious personality of supporting star Zeke, and so it spent the entirety of the PlayStation 3 title’s sequel trying to redeem the character – a measure which...

Freedom Wars' English Story Trailer Will Leave You With a Raised Eyebrow

Living is a crime

If you didn't quite find yourself captivated by last week's 12 minutes of Japanese Freedom Wars gameplay, perhaps this three minute English trailer will do the trick. Thanks to the magic of subtitles, you can finally wrap your head around the handheld title's seemingly bonkers plot. Focusing on the release's cast of colourful...

Not Bought a PS4 Yet? This The Last of Us Remastered Bundle May Tempt You

Ellie of an entry point

While many have been swift to criticise the PlayStation 4’s first full year on the market, we reckon that Sony’s done an admirable job of beating the content drought and keeping a steady stream of software on store shelves. Only last month it collaborated closely with Ubisoft for the release of Watch Dogs, and it still...

PS4's First Gran Turismo Game Will Be Stuck at the Start Line for a Little While Yet

Off the mark

This editor’s gaming news engine has been stationary for a few days now, so what better way to remove the rust than with a cheeky post about Gran Turismo 7? It would appear that the industry’s still very much in first gear following the excitement of E3 2014 earlier in the month, but speaking with Eurogamer.net at the Goodwood...

PS4 Exclusive The Order: 1886 Features Nerve-Rackingly Realistic Werewolves

At the end of our lycnathrope

You may recall a particularly gruesome trailer for The Order: 1886 from this year's E3. The gory clip debuted during Sony's super slick press conference, and showed off the title's reimagining of 1800s London, complete with historically accurate werewolf infestation. Luckily for us, the Japanese giant has recently...

Does This New Project Morpheus Trailer Sell You On Sony's Virtual Reality Headset?

It's incredible, apparently

Sony's virtual reality headset Project Morpheus may be a nifty piece of tech, but its value is incredibly hard to demonstrate. After all, there's nothing particularly exciting about watching someone with a clunky set of goggles strapped to their face wildly waving their arms about. It's the sort of thing that
