Sorry Europe, You're Not Getting Shovel Knight Today

SCEE strikes back

Costume Quest 2 is finally out in Europe six months after the holiday that it was produced to promote, so what are you whinging about? Oh, that's right: Shovel Knight, which everyone expected to be part of today's European PlayStation Store update, is actually not due out in the Old World until, er, tomorrow. Maybe. Why? We're...

Japanese Sales Charts: PS4 Manages to Cling to the Top Spot Despite Another Drop

Hangin' on in there

Despite the fact that we thought the PlayStation 4 would finally be knocked from its perch at the top last week, Sony's sleek home console actually managed to seize another victory, even though sales have slipped again, this time by around 2000 units. Of course, this is still only possible because of the fact that New 3DS...

Tonight's the knight

We're running out of spade-related puns, so let us just say things straight: Shovel Knight is out on the European PlayStation Store this week.

Sony's Finally Doing Some Maintenance on PS4's Messaging Utility

Snail mail

Messages on the PlayStation 4 have gotten faster of late, but they're still not as immediate as they should be. Fortunately, platform holder Sony has announced some cross-platform maintenance on the PlayStation Network's communications module, which will run – in the UK at least – from 05:00AM BST until 08:00AM BST on Wednesday,...

Digging Deep with Shovel Knight Developer Yacht Club Games

Knight to see you

Since the release of Shovel Knight, developer Yacht Club Games has been lavished with nothing but love for how well it's refined old-school goodness – in fact, some fans have even said that the 2D platformer has set a new standard for indies. We got in touch with the team's David D'Angelo to talk about bringing the title to...

New digs

And that's officially it: the big, blockbuster retail releases are taking a break for a few weeks – it's a good thing that there's tons of PlayStation Network stuff in the pipeline, huh? This week's a particularly good one for digital downloads, if only because Shovel Knight is part of the roster. We've been looking forward to Yacht...

People Are Going Ape Over This PS Vita Trademark

But it's probably nothing

Hype's a funny thing: it often leads people to jump to outrageous (and incorrect) conclusions. Take this PlayStation Vita hardware trademark, which some people seem to think is a new handheld revision. It was filed by Sony Computer Entertainment on 1st April, and spotted on a Twitter account which automatically posts fresh...

Fans' Dreams Come True as Amnesia: Memories Hits the Vita This Summer

They didn't forget

It topped the polls of "What female dating-sim do you want to be localised?" when Aksys Games conducted surveys after Hakuoki's release, and now fans get what they have been wishing for. Amnesia: Memories is coming digitally to the PlayStation Vita this summer, and will mark the first time that Idea Factory has released a dating...

Hyperdimension Neptunia U Clears a Path to PS Vita in May

Action unleashed

If it wasn't for NepNep and friends, the PlayStation Vita probably wouldn't command a retail store presence at all. Fortunately, the forthcoming Hyperdimension Neptunia U: Action Unleashed will put a brand new box on store shelves next month, as Idea Factory International readies yet another entry in the uber-niche series.

Brighten Up Your Day With Persona 4: Dancing All Night's Brand New Trailer

Friday night disco

Persona 4: Dancing All Night looks ridiculous, to put it mildly. The mystery solving gang of the original role-playing game are back to solve yet more mysteries, but this time, they'll be strutting their stuff and dancing the night away to get the job done. Tying a somewhat serious storyline into gameplay that involves pulling...
