Japanese Sales Charts: PS4 Seems to Have Found a Bit of Stability at the Top

And we're not talking firmware

Yes, the PlayStation 4's numbers have dropped, but not by much. Sony's latest console shifted 22,104 units last week, which is down just 800 from prior figures - not a bad result considering that the machine's been steadily slipping back to its pre-price cut sales until now. The Japanese company will probably be...

PlayStation Plus Subscribers Score Sweet EU PS4 Savings

Cash back

This month's PlayStation Plus lineup isn't looking all that tasty, but the latest wave of European PlayStation Store sales should have you salivating in no time. On the cut-price menu this month are a slew of PlayStation 4 double discounts, which will see you pocketing savings of up to 70 per cent on mouth-watering titles like Saints Row...

3rd November 2015 (North America)

Feeling the need for speed

As was the case in Europe, it's a big week for the PlayStation Store over the pond. Call of Duty: Black Ops III is, of course, the headline attraction – but Need for Speed will be hooning for your attention, too. One other thing worthy of note is the Indivisible prototype beta – this is the latest titl

Review: Superbeat: Xonic (PS Vita)

Superbeat: Xonic (PS Vita)

Gotta go fast

Those familiar with the DJ Max series back in the PlayStation Portable era will immediately recognise this rhythm game. Superbeat: Xonic is the newest addition to the rhythm game genre by developer Nurijoy. Rhythm games are no stranger to the PlayStation Vita, so how does this one fare? As with most music games, buttons get mapped to...

3rd November 2015 (Europe)

Back in black

It's a huge week on the European PlayStation Store, with Call of Duty: Black Ops III and Need for Speed leading the charge. Other highlights include Persona 4: Dancing All Night and Dragon Fin Soup – the latter of which will be free for PlayStation Plus users thro

UK Sales Charts: Assassin's Creed Syndicate Loses Its Halo

While Black Ops III waits in the wings

It would have been an absolute catastrophe if Halo 5: Guardians failed to top the sales charts, but it did – outselling the launch numbers of Assassin's Creed Syndicate by 50 per cent. Of course, it's worth noting that Ubisoft's open world romp through London was the poorest performing entry in the property...

Trick or treat

Boo! We love it when a public holiday happens to coincide with WAYP – even if Hallowe'en isn't technically, y'know, a public holiday. Oh, whatever – 31st October offers the perfect opportunity to settle down with some spooky games. But what will be raising your pulse rate? Freak us out in the comments section below. Sammy Barker,...

Your Free PS4 PlayStation Plus Games for November Include Magicka 2, The Walking Dead

Mass Effect 2! Beyond Good & Evil! Dragon Fin Soup!

As rumoured earlier in the week, your free PlayStation Plus games for November will include The Walking Dead: Season 2 and Magicka 2 – on the PlayStation 4 at least. Bizarrely, the platform holder's yet to confirm the PlayStation 3 and Vita titles in the lineup, but we'll update you the

27th October 2015 (North America)

Better late than never

Alright, we're clearly very late posting the North American PlayStation Store update, but hopefully you can forgive us after the theatrics of the previous evening. Highlights this time include the just announced DriveClub Bikes and WWE 2K16. Yeah, we'll refrain from commenting on the latter in case we get lynched. PS4 Games:...

Japanese Sales Charts: Even with Declining Numbers, PS4 Manages to Stay at the Top

Not-so-steady ground

It's a bit of a hollow victory for the PlayStation 4 in the most recent Japanese hardware charts. Sony's new-gen machine is still sitting pretty at the top, but its numbers continue to fall away without the support of any big software releases. The console's managing to stay above the hallowed 20,000 mark, but it seems as...

27th October 2015 (Europe)

Dropping in

Sony's deployed the European PlayStation Store update for 27th October, which we have the sneaking suspicion doesn't include absolutely everything set to be released. Rumours are that DriveClub's bikes expansion will also drop today, so keep an eye on today's press conference for more on that.

This Is How Dynasty Warriors 8: Empires Looks Running on PS Vita

Lands in your hands

There are a plethora of Warriors titles already available on the Vita, with just about every recent musou release being ported to the portable system at one point or another - and Dynasty Warriors 8: Empires, which launched earlier this year on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3, is adding its forces to the Vita's library next...

UK Sales Charts: Assassin's Creed Syndicate Fails to Outsell Predecessors

London's burning

Assassin's Creed Syndicate has climbed to the top of the UK sales charts – but it may not like what it sees. Perhaps suggesting some serious franchise fatigue, the London-based adventure not only failed to better predecessor Assassin's Creed Unity's first week sales, but also every other major entry in the series. In other words,...

PS4 Predictions for Paris Games Week, The Witcher 3 DLC, and Assassin's Creed Syndicate

November's PS Plus reveal timing, PS4 firmware update surveys, and more

Hear that? That's the calm before the storm, because Paris Games Week is coming. It's been an absolutely agonising wait for Sony to take to the stage again, after it skipped its annual Gamescom press conference. Now the hype train's choo-chooing, and we're giving you front row...

Chatter boxes

Wow, are we really up to Issue 90 already? It only feels like yesterday that we quietly robbed this feature idea from our friends over at Nintendo Life, and it's gone from strength to strength since then. A stat: since Issue One was published on 2nd March 2013 there have been over 4,500 comments on these articles – that's comparable...
