Actually, Helldivers Isn't One of Your Free PS Plus Games in March

Shot down

Contrary to popular, and largely logical, opinion, chaotic co-op shooter Helldivers won't actually be one of your free PlayStation Plus games next month. The downloadable title is slated for release on the 3rd and 4th of March in North America and Europe respectively, which understandably led to many believing that it would be available...

Technically, the PlayStation Vita reached toddler status over the weekend – but seeing as the folks at Sony have only just returned to the office, we'll forgive them this belated birthday gift. In order to celebrate the handheld's third anniversary in North America, the platform holder has prepared a bevy of free gifts and...

Sony Suggests It Will Be Streamlining Its Day One PS4 Patches

"We're going to tighten up"

Want to know the worst thing about the PlayStation 3? You'd put in a disc, and then proceed to twiddle your thumbs while you waited for it to install. Fortunately, the PlayStation 4 solves many of these issues, but it's introduced a new one in its place: the dreaded day one patch. These are getting bigger and bigger as...

Resogun: Defenders (PlayStation 4)

Offence is the best form of defence

Goodbye doesn't always have to be the saddest word – it can be explosive, too. Resogun: Defenders marks the last of the post-launch expansions for Housemarque's critically acclaimed PlayStation 4 shoot-'em-up, and, perhaps unsurprisingly, it's something of a humdinger. Packing two brand new modes – Protector...

Hustle Kings (PlayStation 4)

Worth a shot

There were no shortage of pub games on the PlayStation 3 by the end of its tenure as Sony's flagship format, and the PlayStation 4 is picking off right where its predecessor left off. Following the release of VooFoo Studios' pretty Pure Pool last year, the Japanese giant has decided to port Hustle Kings – ironically, also originally...

Next PS4 Firmware Update Is Not Too Far Out, Says Sony

Already overdue

It's been months since PlayStation 4 firmware update v2.00 added some significant features – and bugs – to Sony's next-gen system. Since then, we've had several stability updates, but nothing particularly meaty to sink our teeth into.

The Order: 1886's 256 Page Strategy Guide Is Pure Gold

Push square

We're not ones to kick a game when it's down – after all, we really like parts of Ready at Dawn's inaugural PlayStation 4 exclusive – but The Order: 1886 is probably the last title on the planet that needed a 256 page strategy guide. Still, that's exactly what Brady Games has produced, and it's already proving a hit in some hardcore...
