May PlayStation Plus Content Reveal Coming in the Next Day or Two

Patience is a virtue

Doesn’t time fly when you’re having fun? It doesn’t feel like that long ago since we were reporting on April’s excellent PlayStation Plus lineup, but now May’s content refresh is almost upon us. Responding to a query on the European PlayStation Blog, manager Fred Dutton hinted that the firm's "hoping" to reveal the...

UK Sales Charts: FIFA World Cup Falls to Respawn's FPS

Runners up

Enforcing stereotypes about the British and the beautiful game, there are two soccer simulations in the top five of this week’s UK sales charts. 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil sprinted out of the blocks into second, though it couldn’t topple long-running frontrunner Titanfall. Meanwhile, FIFA 14 landed a Champion’s League spot in...

Talking Point: What Are Your Favourite PlayStation Easter Eggs?

What Are Your Favourite PlayStation Easter Eggs?

Sunny side up

We all know that Easter eggs are at their absolute best when they’re big, brown, and made out of chocolate. However, just because you can’t beat a sugary oval filled with Cadbury’s finest fondant, doesn’t mean that the tasty treats stashed inside video games aren’t also entertaining. We took a look back at 12 of the very...

So, the PSP Almost Matched the Vita's Sales in USA Last Month

The end is nigh

Step out of a New York subway station and you’ll no longer be greeted by a religious zealot with a sandwich board, but instead a dedicated handheld decrier. “Portable consoles are dead,” they’ll scream, pointing to pictures of the PlayStation Vita with a big red line drawn through it. And they may be right, as NPD data has...

Gorgeous Indie Platformer Teslagrad Will Be Electrifying the PS3 and Vita

Tesla? I barely know her

Indie platformers are dime a dozen these days, but very few are as visually striking as Rain Games' stunning title Teslagrad. Taking massive cues from classic Disney, the game's painterly and picturesque panoramas have a very distinct look to them. What's more, the Norwegian developer has painstakingly attempted to...

What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Easter Edition 2

Cracking good time

The long Easter weekend is upon us, which means that this editor will be spending his lie-ins hoping that Jessica Rabbit hops by with a chocolate heart. Curious fantasies aside, it’s been over a year now since we started the ‘What Are You Playing This Weekend’ series, meaning that this is the second Easter Edition that...

Microscopic mechs

Respawn Entertainment’s first-person shooter Titanfall may have stomped all over the PlayStation 4, but there was talk of a PlayStation Vita port before the developer signed with Microsoft.

Alduin vs. Bahamut

Round 11

We're now so far into Who Wins Wednesdays that we've had to start using numbers when it comes to typing out the tagline. We've had ten features leading up to today's duel, with the last battle ending up as a win for everyone's favourite alien, Garrus Vakarian. In an attempt to keep things feeling fresh, we're going to move away from gun...

Review: The Sly Collection (PlayStation Vita)

The Sly Collection (PlayStation Vita)

Anthropomorphic excellence

While the Jak & Daxter and Ratchet & Clank trilogies are widely regarded as the pinnacle of the PlayStation 2’s platforming fare, it’s Sucker Punch’s criminally underrated Sly Cooper series that stole this humble editor’s heart during the early-to-mid 2000s. Depicting the globetrotting antics of a light...

Review: Conception II: Children of the Seven Stars (PlayStation Vita)

Conception II: Children of the Seven Stars (PlayStation Vita)

Born to try

Conception II: Children of the Seven Stars is one of the strangest games that you’ll ever play. Its premise – which, in essence, revolves around mating – provides an odd starting point, but get past this and you’ll find a surprisingly enjoyable excursion that’s only really let down by repetition and some unnecessarily sexual...
