Galak-Z is the headline PlayStation 4 act, while Submerged also sloshes onto Sony's latest console, but other than that, there really isn't much to write home about. In fact, this is probably one of the smallest updates that...

PlayStation Now Subscriptions Shrunk Down to PS Vita

Not entirely forgotten

PlayStation Now has proven to be something of an anti-climax we suppose.

Galak-Z, Submerged, AeternoBlade

Out of this world

It's hardly a vintage week for new releases in the PlayStation Nation, with all eyes pointed purposefully at Gamescom 2015 rather than Sony's storefront.
