  • News PlayStation Chief Shawn Layden Doesn't Enjoy Gaming Exec Fame

    Meme streak

    They get turned into superheroes in GIFs and some even idolise them, but it’s important to remember that gaming executives are exactly that: gaming executives. They’re hired to make difficult (and, honestly, often boring) business decisions – not act like rock stars. And in a wide-ranging interview with Polygon, current PlayStation...

  • News June 2017 PlayStation Plus Games Announced

    A nice bit of variety

    Sony has revealed your PlayStation Plus titles for June 2017, and as it turns out, the recent leak was correct. Indeed, PlayStation 4's looking at a strong offering with Life Is Strange and Killing Floor 2 leading the way. That's not bad at all, is it? Both are quite highly rated, and they each present something completely...

  • News PlayStation E3 2017 Experience Registration Doesn't Go to Plan

    Registration crashes

    Our condolences to those of you who tried to register for theatre tickets for this year’s PlayStation E3 2017 Experience. As is often the case with these kind of things, Sony has been forced to pull the website where fans were supposed to apply for free tickets as it completely buckled under demand. It’s unclear exactly...

  • News Sony Has a Frightening Amount of E3 2017 Booth Space

    Over 40,000 square feet of floor space

    Sony is not shying away from E3 2017 in the slightest. Floor plans are live for the Los Angeles convention, and the platform holder has reserved a terrifying 43,500 square feet of floor space, which eclipses every other company in attendance. The manufacturer will be next door to a very roomy Nintendo booth...

  • News Zut! You'll Have to Beat Zico Twice for WipEout Omega Collection's Platinum

    You are already dead

    We don’t know who the heck Zico is, but we do know he has God-like reflexes. The bane of every WipEout player’s life has returned with not one but two Trophies in the upcoming WipEout Omega Collection. Spare a thought for all of those DualShock 4s that will be thrown to the floor and promptly stamped to smithereens in...

  • News PS4 Firmware Update 4.70 Is Available to Download Now

    Steady as she goes

    This latest PlayStation 4 software update may have appeared out of nowhere, but we'd recommend not getting too excited. As many of you will probably have already guessed, firmware 4.70 simply promises better stability and performance. It weighs in at around 340MB, and you'll need to download it in order to make use of your...

  • Reaction Remembering PS3 - The Console That Wouldn't Quit

    Two steps forward, one step back

    The PlayStation 3 showed two sides to Sony. At launch, the device was nothing short of a disaster: overpriced, over-engineered, and out-of-touch with consumers’ wants and needs, it was the manifestation of a decade’s worth of hubris – the product of a company who thought that it could do no wrong. But three...

  • News Sony Says Goodbye to the PS3 After 10 Years on the Market

    So long, old friend

    Sony has announced that PlayStation 3 production has ended in Japan, which essentially means that the console is done and dusted. Back in March, the company said that the end would soon be coming, and now it's put the final nail in the coffin. The PS3 launched over a decade ago in its homeland; it'll be 11 years old this...

  • Rumour Bloodborne Developer Collaborating with Sony on Aztec RPG

    Or so the rumours say

    Have you heard the rumour about Phantom Wail? This is apparently the latest collaboration between Sony and From Software, ruling out a direct successor to Bloodborne. The story seems to originate from a Reddit post, but it references a “notorious” leaker who isn’t named, so already we’re in sketchy ter

  • News Watch Sony's E3 2017 in Cinemas for Tons of Free Goodies

    Tickets available for free this week

    Good news, the PlayStation E3 Experience is making a comeback, meaning that you’ll be able to watch Sony’s media briefing live in movie theatres yet again this year. A whopping 85 cinemas are taking part in the initiative, and while this does mean that there’ll be a bit of travel involved for some of you,...

  • News Gold PS4 Slim to Bring a Bit of Bling to Retail

    Always believe in your soul

    If you’re the kind of person who likes a bit of bling then this gold 1TB PlayStation 4 Slim may be right up your alley. This photograph appeared on Reddit earlier this evening and looks pretty darn legitimate from where we’re sitting, though there’s not much additional information to go along with the snap...

  • Hands On Has Everybody's Golf on PS4 Been Worth the Wait?

    Hyperlinks

    How long does it take to make an Everybody’s Golf game for the PlayStation 4? A bloody long time, apparently – it’s been three years since Clap Hanz’s new-gen debut was announced, and we’ve still got to wait until the end of August to play it properly. Fortunately, there’s an online beta ongoing at the moment, and we’ve been...

  • Rumour June 2017's PlayStation Plus Lineup Looks Very Strong

    Fingers crossed

    Rumour has it that the fantastic Life Is Strange and the underrated Killing Floor 2 will be the two free PlayStation 4 games with PlayStation Plus in June 2017. The speculation comes courtesy of PlayStation Turkey’s official Twitter account, and while we’d caution against getting too excited just yet, it’d be a very agreeable...

  • News Microsoft's Mixer Could End Up Being Beamed to PlayStation

    Twitch must be twitching in its boots

    Microsoft wants to switch Twitch users to its own Mixer platform, and it’s open to bringing the app to PlayStation if that will help its cause. For those of you who don’t know, the streaming site formerly known as Beam is basically an alternative to more popular games broadcasting destinations – it’s the...

  • News German Retailer Lists God Of War Collector's Edition for €199

    Shields confirmed?

    We've learned very little of the upcoming God of War ever since its debut at E3 last year, but a listing for a Collector's Edition of the game on a German retailer's website may just shed some new light on things. Take all of this with a grain of salt of course, but what's listed here could be noteworthy. The package is listed at...

  • Soapbox Why Did Sony Ditch Two of the Best Games of the Year?

    Sammy's worried about Sony's portfolio

    PlayStation’s enjoying one of the most prolific periods in its history. The start to 2017 has seen the release of several high-profile first-party games, like Gravity Rush 2 and Horizon: Zero Dawn. But being a glass half-empty kinda guy, I feel it could have been even better: what the heck happened with What...

  • News A New PlayStation Vita? The Ridiculously Stupid E3 Rumours Have Begun

    God help us

    Dear oh dear, where to even begin? There are currently rumours floating around the 'net that suggest Sony is planning on unveiling a brand new portable console at E3 next month. Supposedly, this new device will go toe to toe with the Nintendo Switch, because yes, that's a totally logical market for Sony to pursue. Now, these kinds of...

  • News Grab Some PlayStation Goodies from the New UK Gear Store

    Merch mania

    Once upon time, Sony cut the ribbon on the PlayStation Gear store in the UK – and then swiftly shut up shop. Now it’s back! Live in Britain – as well as France and Germany – the outlet is home to a cavalcade of branded goods, allowing you to bear the logo of your corporate overlords on your hoodie as well as your heart...

  • News WipEout Omega Collection's Soundtrack Will Make Your Ears Bleed

    Not literally, of course

    Electronic music has been part of WipEout’s DNA since its inception; the game used to pop up in UK clubs during the PSone days. Apparently. We were too young to be licking WKD off a stripper’s abs back then, and now it seems we’re too old to recognise half of the songs on re-release WipEout Omega Collection’s...
