What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 98

Yes, we're late

No, we will not miss a week. Sorry about the delayed article, y'all – your humble host had some holiday plans today, so we're well aware that this is hours later than it should be. But love is certainly not over, as this author has scaled to the top of the esoteric brick puzzle named life and delivered you your regularly scheduled...

World of Final Fantasy Lands Cute and Colourful PS4, Vita Trailer

D'aww

Square Enix's cutesy role-playing spin-off World of Final Fantasy has fashioned an all-new trailer out of the ongoing Jump Festa 2015, showing off more familiar faces in chibi form. In the clip, we get a glimpse of Faris Scherwiz, Yuna, and Sherlotta. And yes, we totally stole that information from elsewhere. Duh! This honestly looks like a...

Attackers Threaten to Take PSN Offline Again This Christmas

Bah humbug

There'll be very little Christmas cheer for the unfortunate band of technicians tasked with keeping the PlayStation Network online this month, as attackers have threatened to bring Sony's service to its knees over the all-important holiday break. A group named Phantom Squad has already successfully unsettled Xbox Live this evening, and...

Japanese Sales Charts: Gravity Rush Features as PS4 and Vita Enjoy Holiday Bump

Mixed up world

Nintendo enjoyed its usual seasonal boost in the latest Media Create report, with both the Wii U and 3DS dominating the Japanese hardware and software charts. Despite this, it was a good week for the PlayStation 4 and Vita, with both systems selling over 35,000 units apiece. Gravity Rush Remastered was the headline new release,...

15th December 2015 (North America)

Chop, chop

PaRappa the Rapper 2 hits the North American PlayStation Store this week, ready to teach you to believe in your dreams. The popular PlayStation 2 title has been ported to the PlayStation 4 as part of Sony's new emulation initiative, which means that you can expect upgraded visuals and Trophy support.

15th December 2015 (Europe)

Let 'er rip

'Tis the season to play your backlog so there's not much new on the European PlayStation Store this week. The biggest arrivals include Assassin's Creed Syndicate's beefy Jack the Ripper add-on and PaRappa the Rapper 2, which is launching as a PlayStation 2 port on the PlayStation 4. There's also some free DriveClub content and a ton of...

What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 97

Deck the fools

Apparently it's already 12th December, which means that many of you are probably just realising that you have Christmas gifts to buy and decorations to assemble. Gulp. There's still time to get all of that sorted, though, so we recommend shirking your responsibilities and sitting pretty with your PlayStation platform of choice...

Store Update: 8th December 2015 (North America)

8th December 2015 (North America)

Late, late, late

Alright, excuses time. So, the North American PlayStation Store update was not only posted late this week, but it also happened to go live the same time this author booted up Yakuza 5 – and if you'd been waiting, like, three years to play the brawler, then you'd skip on the already delayed software selection, too. Better late than...

Store Update: 8th December 2015 (Europe)

8th December 2015 (Europe)

A surprisingly big one

Lots to see and do on the European PlayStation Store this week, as Sony beats the winter blues with some big new releases. Headlining the digital plaza this week are Final Fantasy VII and Fat Princess Adventures – both released during PlayStation Experience 2015 – but they've been accompanied by the likes of Yakuza 5 (!

News: UK Sales Charts: Just Cause 3 Blows a Hole in the Top Five

UK Sales Charts: Just Cause 3 Blows a Hole in the Top Five

Marvellous Medici

Just Cause 3 tethered a landmine to fourth position in this week's UK sales charts – and pulled them both together. Avalanche Studios' open world adventure appears to have got off to a flying start, but it couldn't topple FIFA 16, Call of Duty: Black Ops III, or Star Wars Battlefront – all three of which remained glued to the...

Push Rewind: Your Ultimate PlayStation Experience 2015 Recap

Your Ultimate PlayStation Experience 2015 Recap

And the rest of the week that was

Well, that was a pretty intensive week. Not only did we stay up late for The Game Awards 2015, but this weekend also brought PlayStation Experience 2015 – and about a trillion PlayStation 4 and Vita announcements with it. Because it's been such an action packed week we've decided to do Push Rewind a little...
