Black Friday 2014 Deals - Every PS4, PS3, and PlayStation Vita Sale

What are the best doorbusters?

Much like Christmas, the build-up to Black Friday has been unbearable at times. Retailers have been teasing PlayStation savings for weeks now, so it’s strange to think that in just over 24 hours, everything will be more or less sold out. Still, if you play your cards right, there are bargains to be found – and...

What Are December 2014's Free PlayStation Plus Games?

Christmas cheer

Thanksgiving is right around the corner for our American readers, but we suspect that the quality of December’s forthcoming PlayStation Plus update will determine just how thankful we’re all feeling come tomorrow morning. Silliness aside, Sony has unveiled this month’s free game refresh a little earlier than usual, presumably...

Injustice, Secret Ponchos, and Hitman Headline December's PlayStation Plus Lineup

Deadly Premonition, Titan Attacks, and more up for grabs

After some pretty strong criticism last month, Sony’s got a much better PlayStation Plus lineup prepared for December. The platform holder already pre-emptively announced the PlayStation 4 titles, but just in case you missed them, you’ll be able to download Injustice: Gods Among Us and

Store Update: 26th November 2014 (Europe)

26th November 2014 (Europe)

Burlap brilliance

LittleBigPlanet 3 finally arrives as part of this week’s European PlayStation Store update – although you’ll have to wait until Friday to play it in the UK. It’s joined by a handful of lower profile titles, including Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions, Aqua Kitty: Milk Mine Defender DX, and the outrageously expensive

Oops, Sony Will Be Compensating Vita Early Adopters for Misleading Marketing

Never stop paying

You may recall that a few years back, Sony was embroiled in a legal minefield over its marketing of the PlayStation Vita. If you're interested, and have a head for legal mumbo-jumbo, you can take a look at the US Federal Trade Commission's original charges through here. For the rest of you, though, the basic gist is that the...

Store Update: 25th November 2014 (North America)

25th November 2014 (North America)

Different dimension

A much more condensed North American PlayStation Store update this week, but that doesn’t mean that it isn’t packing some worthwhile additions. Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions is arguably the highlight this time, but Tales from the Borderlands: Episode One – Zer0 Sum has been securing some seriously high review scores, too...

Rumour: David Jaffe's New Game Will Be Revealed at PlayStation Experience

David Jaffe's New Game Will Be Revealed at PlayStation Experience

God of War maker returns

We knew that David Jaffe wouldn’t be able to stay away for long. The veteran PlayStation employee – who’s behind some of the platform holder’s biggest properties, including God of War and Twisted Metal – looks set to reveal his latest project at Sony’s forthcoming PlayStation Experience fan event. Of course, th

Pigeon Dating Sim Hatoful Boyfriend Flaps onto PS4 and Vita Next Year

Woo-ing you

When the visual novel Hatoful Boyfriend was launched in Japan by Hato Moa, many brushed the pigeon hook-up sim aside. Devolver Digital, however, grabbed the bird by the wings – and following a successful launch on Steam earlier in the year, it'll be flying onto the PlayStation 4 and Vita in 2015. This isn't an early April fools' day...

Review: Home (PlayStation 4)

Home (PlayStation 4)

Home is where the heart is

Home is the side-scrolling mystery from one-man indie developer Benjamin Rivers. It’s an intriguing title with some horror elements thrown in for good measure, as well as a ‘choose your own adventure’ narrative. You play as an unnamed man who awakens in a house with nothing but a flashlight. From there, it’s up to...

Out This Week: Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions, Aqua Kitty DX, Akiba's Trip PS4

Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions, Aqua Kitty DX, Akiba's Trip PS4

Bizarre creations

After last week’s deluge of tasty titles, you could be forgiven for thinking that this week’s roster of PlayStation releases may be a little thin on the ground – but it’s surprisingly stacked for the days prior to Thanksgiving. Granted, there are no major blockbusters vying for your attention here, but we reckon that the...

Push Rewind: Grand Theft Auto V PS4, Dragon Age: Inquisition, Far Cry 4

Grand Theft Auto V PS4, Dragon Age: Inquisition, Far Cry 4

The big one

If we’re honest, it’s been a pretty slow week for news – but the wealth of fresh releases has more than made up for things. We’ve been busy working our way through dozens of big titles for review this week, and while we’ve still got our final verdict on Grand Theft Auto V to come, we’re going to give ourselves a pat on the...

Talking Point: What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 47

What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 47

Age of dragons

Well now, there are no shortage of new titles to talk about this weekend, are there? While we still can’t seem to convince associate editor Robert Ramsey to participate in one of these – he’s been playing Dragon Age: Inquisition as if it’s going out of fashion for days now – there’s plenty of variety from the rest of the...

Store Preview: Akiba's Trip PS4, Guilty Gear Demo, Geometry Wars 3

Akiba's Trip PS4, Guilty Gear Demo, Geometry Wars 3

Round up, round up

And in the blink of an eye, that’s the last of the big new releases until The Crew next month. Don’t think that the PlayStation Store’s going to become a barren wasteland in the days leading up to Thanksgiving, though, as Sony is keeping it well supplied with a couple of smaller releases – like the PlayStation 4 version of...

Ooh Matron! This PS4 Remote Play Ad Is All a Bit Saucy

Carry on playing

Don’t take your temperature after watching this bizarre Belgian commercial for the PlayStation 4 and Vita, as there may be some inaccuracies in the results that you record. It would appear that Sony hasn't forgotten about its portable platform in Europe – and is quite literally, ahem, bringing out the big guns to help sell the...

15 Awesome PS4, Vita Indie Games That We Haven't Had Time to Tell You About Yet

Catch up

Not every indie game is amazing, but we very much appreciate the existence of the space. While this week has proven that blockbuster titles are not going anywhere – Grand Theft Auto V! Far Cry 4! LittleBigPlanet 3! Dragon Age: Inquisition! – we like to think of the smaller content as the palette cleansers that prepare you for your...

Killzone: Shadow Fall Fights for Free in Japan's December PlayStation Plus Update

Vekta-ory

PlayStation Plus’ selection of "free" software has been underfire for a little while now, with subscribers dissatisfied with the roster of indie games making up each month’s PlayStation 4 lineup. However, the platform holder has already stressed that this will change starting in December, with superhero brawler Injustice: Gods Among...

Meet the Man Who Makes PlayStation's Amazing Press Kits

Box art

Talking about press kits in a post-Doritosgate era is perhaps a little awkward, but the work of Tim Smith deserves to be appreciated. The Welsh graphic designer and illustrator is behind some of SCEE’s best pre-release packages, which are typically sent to journalists alongside review code prior to a particular PlayStation title’s...
