Review: OlliOlli (PlayStation Network - Vita)

OlliOlli (PlayStation Network - Vita)

Cool boarder

Once at the apex of industry excitement, the extreme sports genre’s popularity has faded faster than the artwork on an abused skateboard. Now a pastime for Hanson imitating teenage misfits, the days of earnestly discussing kickflips over a curry in the office canteen have long faded. British indie Roll7’s hoping to turn back the...

You'll Be Able to Share Your Sinister Side with the World in Deception IV

Broadcast your brutality

The real appeal of gaming is that it offers unmatchable escapism, allowing you to perform feats that you may not otherwise get to experience in the real world. These may range from lifting the FA Cup in FIFA 14 to helming a pirate’s ship in Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag – or, in the case of upcoming PlayStation 3 and...

inFAMOUS: Second Son Star Delsin Rowe Doesn't Look Quite As Dislikeable in Burlap

Cute and conduit

Delsin Rowe, the hero of upcoming PlayStation 4 exclusive inFAMOUS: Second Son, may have rubbed some folks up the wrong way with his trendy headwear and arrogant attitude – but it’s hard to hate the superhero when he’s masquerading as a Sackboy key ring.

UK Sales Charts: FIFA 14 Flaunts Its Consistency with Lengthy Spell at Summit

Top of the league

There’s not an ounce of Manchester United in EA Sports' soccer simulation FIFA 14 – after all, the multiformat release actually seems capable of stringing a couple of good results together.

Japanese Sales Charts: PS Vita Keeps Plodding Along

Handheld keeping its head above water

The holidays have come to a conclusion in Japan, but the PlayStation Vita has held on fairly well. Naturally, it couldn’t sustain its stellar performance from the week prior, but the portable platform still managed to shift just shy of 30,000 units – and that’s without any major software releases to back...

Can UK's Broadband Cope with PlayStation Now?

Bandwidth bottleneck

With the recent announcement of the PlayStation Now cloud streaming service, the question that has been lingering in the air is whether our broadband connections can actually handle it.

Puyo Puyo Tetris May Just Be the Coolest Crossover Ever

No, really

Forget about Ubisoft’s promise of a next-gen Tetris for the PlayStation 4, as there’s only one puzzler that you’re going to want to splash out on this year.

Sony says it's still winning in North America

Vita Exclusive Toukiden: The Age of Demons Summons a Four Minute Animated Trailer

Get a slice of this

Sometimes there's no better way to begin a game than to barrage the player with a nicely animated movie – preferably one that's backed by some catchy Japanese rock. Unfortunately the latter isn't used here, but Tecmo Koei has seen fit to release a whole four minute animation for its upcoming oni-slaying adventure Toukiden:...

15th January 2014 (Europe)

Nothing to see here

There’s always hope that the European PlayStation Store update will drag out an unexpected release, but this week’s refresh is even slower than the one in North America. Highlights include middling PlayStation 3 port Assassin’s Creed Liberation HD, and, well, that’s honestly about it. Catch you next time, we guess...
