News: No Fair! Japan's Getting The Unfinished Swan on PS4 and Vita Next Week

No Fair! Japan's Getting The Unfinished Swan on PS4 and Vita Next Week

Still not finished, apparently

You may recall a rumour that was floating about the internet late last year which suggested that PlayStation 3 classic The Unfinished Swan would be recklessly flinging paint onto the PlayStation 4. The speculations were soon shot down, but we've kept our fingers crossed ever since. Apparently all our appendage-based...

Killzone: Mercenary Prepares for PlayStation TV with Patch

Show stopper

We’re not entirely sure why Sony’s opted to delay the PlayStation TV for a month in Europe, but those of you in North America will be able to wrap your hands around the nifty little microconsole starting from tomorrow. And in order to celebrate that momentous occasion, Guerrilla Cambridge has deployed a timely patch for Killzone:...

News: DriveClub Dev Considering Compensation Options for Disastrous Launch

DriveClub Dev Considering Compensation Options for Disastrous Launch

Company had 'confidence' in servers

DriveClub actually performed pretty well in this week’s UK sales charts update, meaning that the racer sold reasonably at retail. That makes its launch issues all the more problematic, because, potentially, thousands of people are stuck with a game that doesn’t work as advertised. This has prompted game...

Snow Joke! Standalone White PS4 Coming to UK Next Week

Winter wonderbox

Personally, we quite like the idea of all of our home entertainment appliances being the same colour (black), but if you don’t suffer from a pesky case of OCD, then you may be tempted by the white PlayStation 4 console. Previously, this was only available alongside Destiny or DriveClub, but, as promised by Worldwide Studios...

Feature: Why Do Next-Gen Games Keep Disappointing?

Why Do Next-Gen Games Keep Disappointing?

PS poor

DriveClub, one of Sony’s big exclusive PlayStation 4 games, launched this week to a largely lukewarm reception. Evolution Studios’ hotly anticipated racing title had been paraded as one of the first must-have next-gen releases, only for a string of middling reviews to siphon any fuel out of its tank. The critical response, as a whole,...

PlayStation Experience Pledges a Peek into the Future of PS4

Breathe slowly

This came out of nowhere, didn’t it? Sony has announced a two-day community event in Las Vegas named PlayStation Experience, which promises to offer an “exclusive first look at what’s coming next in 2015”. This could just mean that the platform holder’s going to allow attendees to get some hands-on time with the likes of...

Uncharted 4: A Thief's End Update Incoming 'Really Soon'

Nate for it

Sony’s not totally done for the year yet. In an interview with Game Crate, Evan Wells, the big cheese at Naughty Dog, has hinted that we’ll be seeing more of its PlayStation 4 exclusive Uncharted: A Thief’s End “really soon”. These comments mirror those made by creative director Neil Druckmann prior

Oh No! Sony Has Even Bungled DriveClub's Box

Proof is in the pudding

As the editor of a relatively popular PlayStation website, typos are this author’s immortal enemy. However, we pump out such a vast amount of content every day that any embarrassing slip-ups fortunately get buried in a matter of hours – but that’s not the case when you’re in charge of producing the text on the back...

Whoa, LittleBigPlanet 3 Features a Seriously Star-Studded Voice Cast

Fry and Laurie reunited

The LittleBigPlanet franchise was already leading the pack when it came to narration, thanks to Stephen Fry's dulcet voiceovers. However, there's always room for improvement, and in the franchise's newest entry that improvement comes in the form of a fully voice-acted adventure. What's more, the recently revealed cast members...

Round Up: DriveClub PS4 Reviews Target Pole Position

DriveClub PS4 Reviews Target Pole Position

Low on gas

At least everyone can agree that it looks pretty, right? The first batch of DriveClub reviews have crossed the finish line – and, well, it’s all looking a teensy bit mixed. Despite spending an extra 12 or so months in the tuning shop, Evolution Studios’ next-gen racer appears to have fallen somewhat short of a podium place, with...
