  • News The EU PlayStation Store's Summer Sale Gets a Few More Tempting Deals

    Ignore the sun

    More games have been added to the PlayStation Store's summer sale in Europe, and we'd dare say that some of these new discounts are actually pretty good. The Vita arguably comes off best this time around, with Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc and Danganronpa 2; Goodbye Despair leading the charge. The superb Persona 4 Golden is on...

    Review Actual Sunlight

    Actually depressing

    Depression is a fairly common mood disorder that, despite its frequency, is still not considered a serious issue by many. Sadly, some people think that a simple attitude change will fix all of the ailments; that it's a self-inflicted state of mind. This is simply not true. Actual Sunlight by Will O'Neill is a short, interactive,...

  • Store Update 11th August 2015 (North America)

    Master of the universe

    Ready for a humongous North American PlayStation Store update? Good, because that's exactly what Sony's got in store. Highlights obviously include Everybody's Gone to the Rapture and Goat Simulator, but Toy Soldiers: War Chest and Gauntlet: Slayer Edition are also in with a shout. And then there's... Nope, we've run out of...

  • Store Update 11th August 2015 (Europe)

    Baaaaa

    We still haven't got used to the European PlayStation Store update coming before the North American one, but there's no time to dwell as we've got new releases to list. Let's not beat around the privet bush: Everybody's Gone to the Rapture is the big'un this time. Honourable mentions must go to Goat Simulator and Gauntlet: Slayer Edition,...

  • Game of the Month The Best PlayStation Games of July 2015

    Indies, indies, indies, and more indies

    July was a pretty dreary month for new releases, as evidenced by the list of nominees that we scraped together just days ago. With no heavy hitting blockbusters lining store shelves, it fell to several indie games to pick up the slack, and thankfully, four of them answered the call. May this be remembered as...

  • News Sony Wants You to Win an Ungodly Amount of PlayStation Goods

    Are you game?

    Ever wanted to own a mountain of PlayStation goods? Oh, you already do. Well, for those of you who aren't lucky enough to have acquired multiple limited edition PlayStation 4 consoles, dozens of games, memorabilia, and accessories, Sony has got a pretty great competition for you. Dubbed the Fully Loaded Turbo Charged contest, those...

  • Out This Week Everybody's Gone to the Rapture, Goat Simulator, Gauntlet: Slayer Edition

    Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons, Actual Sunlight, TorqueL, and more

    The excitement of Gamescom 2015 may have subsided, but that's okay, because there are about a billion new PlayStation games due out this week. Alright, we're exaggerating a teensy bit, but considering that it's the summer, such an enormous roster of new software is practically...

  • UK Sales Charts A Rare Change at the Summit

    Blast from the past

    Xbox One exclusive Rare Replay shot straight to the top of the UK sales charts in a desperately slow summer week, securing the legendary British developer's first number one since Banjo-Kazooie all the way back in 1998. Elsewhere, last week's frontrunner LEGO Jurassic World moved down into second, while Batman: Arkham Knight,...

  • Push Rewind Gamescom 2015, Mafia III, and PlayStation Plus

    Dull Deutschland

    What is historically one of the busiest weeks in the PlayStation gaming calendar turned out to be a bit of a damp squib, with Sony's presence at Gamescom 2015 spanning everything but a press conference. We did manage to mine the event for plenty of PlayStation 4 headlines, but our attention is already turning to the Tokyo Game...

  • Talking Point What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 79

    Inner smile

    The Premier League season is back underway, so that means that this author will be spending the next ten or so months composing WAYP with half an eye on the BBC text updates. Of course, this article isn't about football, but the PlayStation games that will be keeping you company all weekend. Here's what our team are up to. Sammy Barker,...

  • News Gal Gun: Double Peace Plans on Bringing Its Risqué Pheremone Business West on PS4 and Vita

    Careful now

    If you've ever seen footage of Gal Gun: Double Peace, then you'll know why we put the word 'risqué' in the headline. The shoot-'em-up sees you blast away infatuated schoolgirls with the power of love against colourful backdrops, and for some, it's bound to be one step too far into the realm of weird, but at least we're seeing an...

    Review J-Stars Victory VS+

    Star-crossed

    J-Stars Victory VS+ is actually quite a snug fit on the PlayStation Vita. The bite-sized battles feel like they're just the right size for a quick spot of portable play, and the graphics arguably look crisper than they do on the big screen. This is the same game that you can get on the PlayStation 4, which we've already covered in more...

  • Japanese Sales Charts Nothing to See Here, Go Back to Gamescom News

    Off you go

    Imagine writing a story about the Japanese hardware and software charts on a day when every game under the sun is getting Gamescom 2015 coverage. An atrocious process for all those involved, we're sure that you'll agree, but we do this every week, so we suppose that we're bound by duty. So, what's happening in Japan? The answer: bugger...

  • News Mighty No. 9 Misfires, Delayed Until 2016

    Not so mega, man

    Mighty No. 9 will indeed say nein to its previously planned 15th September release, as Comcept has confirmed in a since pulled forum post that the Mega Man-esque escapade has been delayed. The news follows the conclusion of creator Keiji Inafune's failed Red Ash Kickstarter – we're sure there's absolutely no connec

There are currently no details on how the game plays, but we do know that it's being developed by Omega Force - the studio behind the Warriors games. It's not like it's got much else going on, right? In any...

  • News PS4 Games Limbo to Lower Prices in Sizzling NA Summer Sale

    How low can you go?

    It's getting hot in here, so loosen up your PlayStation Network wallet: Sony's big Summer Sale is set to make you sweat for another week, with a slew of North American savings certain to have you dancing in your underpants.

  • Store Update 4th August 2015 (North America)

    Submerge yourself in the PlayStation Store

    As in Europe, this week's North American PlayStation Store update is a little on the light side – although the likes of Submerged and Galak-Z should hold your attention until some of the heavier hitters arrive a little later in the month. There's also the continuation of Sony's scorching summer sale, so...

  • Store Update 4th August 2015 (Europe)

    The calm before the storm

    Barring a few downloadable titles, it's slim pickings this week on the European PlayStation Store. 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...

  • News Europe, Download Your PlayStation Plus Freebies Now

    Get 'em while they're hot

    Today may mark the onset of Gamescom 2015 insanity, but it's also the beginning of a new month for PlayStation Plus members. Sony's updated the Instant Game Collection in Europe today, and you can download all of the latest goodies direct from the PlayStation Store's browser-based client. Things aren't quite up-to-date on...

  • News PlayStation Now Subscriptions Shrunk Down to PS Vita

    Not entirely forgotten

    PlayStation Now has proven to be something of an anti-climax we suppose. Don't get us wrong, the technology is impressive, but Sony's struggled to stumble upon a business model that makes sense for both the company and consumers, and that's dampened the enthusiasm for the service somewhat. Plus, that whole backwards...

  • Out This Week 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. Still, there are a handful of smaller digital downloads vying for your attention in the guise of Galak-Z and Submerged. The question is: what are you buyin'? Pick of the Week:...

  • Push Rewind PlayStation Plus Freebies, PS4 Vote to Play, and Dragon Quest XI

    Take your pick

    Sorry for the tardiness with Push Rewind this week, readers – your humble host started Life Is Strange: Episode 4 on Sunday evening, and it was longer than expected. Holy crap, right? Anyway, we know that you demand your regularly scheduled recap, so here it is a few hours late. To be honest, it was a bit of a quiet one again –...

  • UK Sales Charts PS4 Hardware Promotions Spur Software Sales

    Like hot cakes

    Sony's proving a particularly fierce competitor in the UK, as it refuses to let Microsoft get a foothold. You may have seen our story last week on the PlayStation 4's success in Britain, but the Japanese giant's not resting on its laurels. It launched a series of new bundles over the weekend, which spurred PlayStation software up the...

  • News Gravity Rush Testers Requested on Reddit

    Kat's got the cream

    Could there be Gravity Rush news around the corner?

While the post seems suspect, a legit company named

  • Talking Point What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 78

    Bring on the Bratwurst

    It's the calm before the storm otherwise known as Gamescom 2015, although Sony's press conference absence has left us pondering just how busy we're going to be over the coming days. With the likes of Mafia III and Horizon: Zero Dawn all lined up, though, we're sure that it's going to be a good one – even if it does feel like...

  • Rumour Mighty No. 9 May Say Nein to 2015 Release

    Mighty blunder
