Free the freebies

The price has gone up in North America, but few could be disappointed with September 2016's selection of free PlayStation Plus games.

Japanese Sales Charts: PS4 Numbers Skyrocket Thanks to Slim Release and Persona 5

That's more like it

Remember last week when we speculated that the PlayStation 4 would probably jump back to around the 20,000 mark and continue to stay there?

Your Destiny

Destiny: Rise of Iron takes top billing on the European PlayStation Store this week, bringing ample incentive for you to return to Bungie's sci-fi universe.

Iron rising

The nights are drawing in and the skies have turned a subtle shade of grey; the summer's officially over and it's time to start thinking about investing in a new woolly jumper or three.

To the hockey

So many PlayStation 4 games. Although, to be fair, this week's European PlayStation Store update is padded by à la carte remaster compilations and about a billion different versions of NHL 17. Does anyone even want the standard version on this side of the Atlantic? PS4 Games: EA Sports FIFA 17 demo 13th September Dead Rising Triple...
