Sony Looking into PaRappa the Rapper Release on PSN

You gotta believe

Vib Ribbon’s recent release on the PlayStation Network has proven that new SCEA boss Shawn Layden has his heart in the right place. While he may not yet have a commanding stage presence like his predecessor Jack Tretton, the suit certainly knows PlayStation through and through, having previously worked with the firm in both...

News: PlayStation Experience Attendees to Spend a Night Under No Man's Sky

PlayStation Experience Attendees to Spend a Night Under No Man's Sky

Pictor right moment

While there are some negative connotations surrounding the word indie at the moment, teensy British studio Hello Games seems to have largely escaped criticism with the amazing looking No Man’s Sky. In fact, given the enthusiasm surrounding the release right now, it's hard to believe that it's being built by a team of ten or...

PS4 Passes One Million Sales Milestone in Germany

Pole position

It may well have been severely supply constrained at launch, but the PlayStation 4 has already passed the one million sales milestone in Germany, leaving its competitors in the dust. According to SCEE, the number was crossed on 21st October, putting its next-gen platform in “pole position”. Given the region, we reckon that the...

PlayStation Experience Is Perfectly Timed for Developers to Have Something New to Show

Choo choo

We’re still not quite sure what to expect from Sony’s forthcoming PlayStation Experience fan event. While we initially warned you to temper your expectations for big announcements, all of the chatter leading up to the convention has suggested that you may want to keep your eyes and ears open for some sizeable reveals during the show...

What Does PS4 Racer DriveClub's v1.07 Patch Do?

Lots of things

Doesn’t time fly when your game’s broken? Evolution Studios is already onto patch v1.07 for its PlayStation 4 exclusive racer DriveClub, but this does more than tweak the title’s busted online connectivity. The first new feature included as part of this update is Photo Mode, which will allow you to take snaps of your...

Review: LittleBigPlanet 3 (PlayStation 4)

LittleBigPlanet 3 (PlayStation 4)

Dream weaver

Reviewing a LittleBigPlanet game at launch is a little like rating The Beatles’ entire catalogue based on everything up to Rubber Soul: the pieces are in place, but the real magic is yet to come. A community centric sequel such as this deserves time to properly mature, but expectations demand that we put pen to paper now. The question...

Weirdness: What if PS4 Launch Hero Knack Was a Character in Killzone?

What if PS4 Launch Hero Knack Was a Character in Killzone?

Stahl-wart

It’s been ten years since this fresh faced editor first read about PlayStation 2’s supposed ‘Halo killer’ Killzone in one of the many gaming magazines around at the time. The series hasn’t gone on to become quite the commercial juggernaut that many predicted, but it’s still carved out a sizeable fanbase for itself, with each...

Ever Wanted to Know Why You Can't Change Your PSN Name?

Shawn Layden to the rescue

The inability of PlayStation Network users to change their online names is undoubtedly one of the most philosophically important dilemmas of the modern age. It feels like a strange and slightly archaic policy, whichever way you slice it. Thankfully, in a recent interview, SCEA president Shawn 'E3 Yawn' Layden explained...

Evolution Studios Prepares Free Apologetic DriveClub DLC

PS4 exclusive's Season Pass extended

When a game launch goes as badly as DriveClub, the best that a developer can do is try to atone for the problems as diligently and as quickly as possible. While we’d perhaps argue that Evolution Studios shouldn’t be in this position in the first place, at least it’s trying to make things up to its fans. And...

News: Happy Birthday to You, PlayStation 4

Happy Birthday to You, PlayStation 4

Party like it's your birthday

Apparently, today marks the anniversary of the PlayStation 4’s release in North America, which means that you should probably take a moment to toast your super system – all to the backdrop of 50 Cent’s infectious In Da Club. Seriously, though, has it really been a year already? This particular author

Talking Point: Is This Gaming's Most Disappointing Ever Year?

Is This Gaming's Most Disappointing Ever Year?

Down for the count

If this is next-gen, then we wished that greatness would have waited until it was ready. We were going to pen this article a little later in the month – the release schedule is still stacked with several other blockbuster titles – but with the Assassin’s Creed Unity saga still a sour taste on the industry’s lips, we’ve...
