Set Sail with Four Brand New One Piece: Pirate Warriors 3 Character Trailers

A new challenger

Ah, Warriors games. Thanks to their often massive character rosters, there are plenty of excuses to swamp fans in videos and screenshots, and we've got four such trailers for you today. Showcasing the movesets of returning fighters Smoker, Buggy, and Mihawk, along with newcomer Tashigi, there's plenty of footage to heighten those...

News: Sony Tempting Fate with Friday 13th New York Event

Sony Tempting Fate with Friday 13th New York Event

Will announce new PlayStation initiative

PlayStation MVPs are essentially Sony super fans who get invited to various internal events as a reward for being top-tier consumers. They're also occasionally privy to information that they're not supposed to publicly share – like this email that popped up on NeoGAF earlier this evening. We suspect that a...

28th January 2015 (Europe)

The strange life

There's plenty to look forward to on the European PlayStation Store this week, with rotting flesh and troubled teenagers the headline arrivals. That's right, both Dying Light and Life Is Strange will be available to download this week, with Grim Fandango Remastered, Baboon, and

Sony also pulling the plug on YouTube

This isn't going to do anything to reassure people that the PlayStation Vita is alive and well. Sony has announced this morning that it will be discontinuing support for the YouTube, Maps, and Near applications on its flagship handheld soon. The video streaming software will be delisted from the PlayStation...

Store Update: 27th January 2015 (North America)

27th January 2015 (North America)

Manny, oh man

This week's North American PlayStation Store update is all about the addition of two new titles: Dying Light and Grim Fandango Remastered. The heavy hitters have some company in Life Is Strange (out on Friday) and the verbose Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth2: Sisters Generation – but we suspect that it's the aforementioned that will...

Review: Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth2: Sisters Generation (PlayStation Vita)

Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth2: Sisters Generation (PlayStation Vita)

A real mouthful

We all know the dreaded curse of video game sequels. Studios will often find themselves with a hit on their hands, and in a feeble attempt to recreate gold, will instead serve up a horrible mess of lost potential. Japanese role-playing game Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth2: Sisters Generation steers clear of this trap, instead...

UK Sales Charts: Saints Row Misses Out on Four More Years

Voted out

Saints Row IV: Re-Elected & Gat Out of Hell missed out on the presidency spot in this week's UK sales charts, clawing its way into fourth position overall. Grand Theft Auto V was instead sworn into the White House, completing a third term at the summit of the British best sellers list, while Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare and FIFA 15...

Deep breath time

If the industry's been asleep for a few weeks, then it's finally been shaken from its slumber. This was a huge week in the PlayStation Nation, with big games like Saints Row IV: Re-Elected and Resident Evil hitting the PlayStation Store, as well as huge news regarding Dying Light and PlayStation Plus consuming our virtual column...

Dying Light, Grim Fandango, and Life Is Strange

Spoiled for choice

We did put our series of PlayStation Store previews on hiatus over Christmas, but as with all of the other columns across the site, we're bringing it back with a vengeance. Remember, this is the latest information as shared by the PlayStation Blogcast, which means that the content is subject to change, and primarily applies to...

Grim Fandango Remastered's PS4 and Vita Trophies Pack a Platinum

Manny mad

The inconsistency between digital Trophies goes on, as it's been confirmed that Grim Fandango Remastered will come with a Platinum gong. It looks like the majority of the trinkets will pertain to the plot and specific actions, but there is a nightmarish addition: "Play the whole game with tank controls." The game has, of course, been...

How Many Oni Can You Kill in Toukiden: Kiwami on PS4 and Vita?

Pre-order bonuses uncovered

Having covered games like The Last Guardian and Final Fantasy XV for almost the entire life of this very site, we can't help but smile when a title is officially announced mere months before release. One such game is Toukiden: Kiwami, which was only revealed a week or so ago, but is already closing in on its March launch...

The weeks seem to come and go quicker and quicker, but at least there's your regular dose of WAYP to look forward to on the weekend. Regular readers should already know the drill: this is your forum to talk about all of the games that you'll be playing over the coming days. We've got to be honest, writing these introductions gets harder...

February's PlayStation Plus Freebies Will Be Announced Next Week

Sony teases 'good selection'

It's that time of the month where we all begin building hopelessly unrealistic expectations for the next PlayStation Plus update – all so that we can vent our disgust when the actual offering doesn't come close to matching our pipedreams. Seriously, though, European PlayStation Blog manager Fred Dutton has revealed on...

Don't use your 10 per cent off voucher just yet, as Sony has launched a PlayStation Store Flash Sale in North America to coincide with the promotion. This is live now, and will run until 09:00AM PST on 26th January, so if you pair it with the aforementioned apology offer, you could get some serious bang for your buck this weekend. Who...

What Will You Be Spending Your 10 Per Cent PSN Discount On?

Decisions, decisions

When you really stop and think about it, Sony's "apology" for the PlayStation Network outage over Christmas is a bit of a marketing masterstroke. While the company gets to look like it's doing right by its consumers, we'd be shocked if it didn't see an enormous spike in sales when the offer goes into effect from 09:00AM local...

Shake Spears! (PlayStation Vita)

Meh-dieval

Free-to-play. Whenever these three words are uttered, it's hard to stifle the shudder that follows when you begin to think about microtransactions, "pay-to-win", and the other deceitful, annoying practices often associated with the whole model. There are the rare few with compelling gameplay and fair microtransactions such as Warframe,...

How Does Toukiden: Kiwami on PS4 Look Compared to the Vita Version?

Porting prowess

It seems like you can't go five minutes these days without seeing some sort of graphics comparison, and while we understand that it all gets a bit tedious, there's plenty of reason for this particular look at the difference between the PlayStation 4 and Vita versions of Toukiden: Kiwami. As you'd expect, the home console edition...
