People Are Going Ape Over This PS Vita Trademark

But it's probably nothing

Hype's a funny thing: it often leads people to jump to outrageous (and incorrect) conclusions.

MLB 15 The Show (PlayStation 4)

Infield home run

It's hard to believe that MLB The Show is now celebrating its 10th anniversary. Despite dominating every other baseball title for the majority of these years, Sony's series has never shown complacency. Instead, it's aged like a fine wine, and gotten better with each new release. When booting up MLB 15 The Show, there's nothing here...

'Appy now?

Does anyone even watch television "live" anymore?

Housemarque's Alienation Will Test Your Teamwork

Out of this world

It's hard not to be hyped for a Housemarque title – but we wished that the Finnish outfit had provided some new footage alongside its latest Alienation progress report, as everything that it's describing screams Helldivers to us.

Looks Like Korea's Getting Some PS4 Greatest Hits

The essentials

We suppose that the PlayStation 4's just about old enough to command a Greatest Hits label, and it looks like that's exactly what it'll be getting in South Korea from 22nd April.

Even Xbox's Boss Is Impressed by Bloodborne's PS4 Sales

Hunter's dream

In a move that's been no way orchestrated by Microsoft's marketing team, Phil 'One of Us' Spencer has congratulated Sony on the success of Bloodborne, which has already surpassed one million sales globally.
