New Dragon Quest Builders PS4 Trailer Tells You Everything You Need to Know

Handyman

Despite its cute and colourful appearance, it's safe to say that Dragon Quest Builders offers a lot of depth through its crafting system, which allows you to build... Well, just about anything within reason. With the game launching next month, Square Enix has knocked together a '101' trailer, which covers fundamentals such as crafting,...

Sony Hasn't Forgotten About the PS Vita Entirely

New colours incoming overseas

The PlayStation Vita put in an appearance at Sony's TGS 2016 press conference today – albeit a rather fleeting one.

UK Sales Charts: Overwatch Is Still Unbeatable as Uncharted Stretches Its Legs

Tracer on top

Sony must be really, really satisfied with Uncharted 4: A Thief's End. The game's been a constant in the UK top ten since its release, and it's remained in seventh this week. No Man's Sky, another first-party game, is also doing incredibly well for itself – despite the poor word of mouth. It's finished up in eighth this week. But...

What Are You Playing This Weekend - Issue 134

The waiting game

Wow, 134 issues of What Are You Playing and this is maybe... The third or fourth time that Overlord Barker hasn't put it together? That's some dedication right there, but enough waffling - it's time to find out what we're going to be playing on this rather grey but warm UK weekend. Robert Ramsey, Associate Editor: It's taken me...

Toukiden 2's Open World Oni Slaying Confirmed for North America and Europe

The bigger they are

Toukiden 2, the sequel to the rather good Toukiden: Kiwami, has been confirmed for a Western release by publisher Koei Tecmo. The title's been available in Japan since July. Due to launch in Europe and North America in 2017, the demon-slaying series goes open world with its latest instalment, featuring large environments that...

Japanese Sales Charts: PS4 Flatlines as Slim Model Nears

The Witcher 3's back, though

As you'd expect, PlayStation 4 sales are plummeting in Japan ahead of the Slim's imminent arrival. Sony's system sold through just 1828 units last week as the standard PS4 model is slowly phased out to make room for its sleeker sibling. Meanwhile, on the software side of things, there's no really too much to see. The...

6th September 2016 (North America)

Tomorrow, tomorrow

Not a bad update for the North American PlayStation Store this week, with The Tomorrow Children finally, finally launching on PlayStation 4. It releases alongside super old MMO Star Trek Online and Japanese role-playing game sequel Trials of Cold Steel II. Are you nabbing anything in particular? Splash some cash in the comments...

New Berserk PS4 Trailer Shows Why You Don't Mess with Nosferatu Zodd

He's a monster

Nosferatu Zodd lives for the thrill of battle, and that's pretty clear to see in Berserk's latest gameplay trailer. Indeed, Zodd's the star of this one as we see him make mincemeat out of his enemies in both his human and demon forms. It's still unclear how transformations actually work - we're unsure if they're just temporary or if...

PSN Down For Third Time in Two Weeks

Let's hope it's another blip

Uh oh, the PlayStation Network seems to be down again. Over the last couple of weeks, there have been two widely reported outages - although neither has lasted more than a few hours, thankfully. With any luck, this latest downtime will be a similar story. Weighing in with our own experience, we currently can't connect...

6th September 2016 (Europe)

Those PS4 games just keep on coming

This week's European PlayStation Store update is a reasonably large one, with twenty new PS4 titles hitting the digital shelves either today or a little later this week. Highlights include eerily wacky The Tomorrow Children, ancient MMO Star Trek Online, and the weirdly promising Virginia. See anything that takes...

World of Final Fantasy Goes Anime with Its Latest Trailer

Breaking limits

World of Final Fantasy has looked pretty good for a while now, and it continues to do so with a brand new trailer from PAX West. While it's not the longest clip in the world, we get a quick peek at some gameplay along with a glance at a fully animated battle sequence, which features Cloud, Squall, and Tidus in their chibi forms...

What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 133

Are you Red E?

It's the calm before the storm – and not just because we've had a couple of days of hot weather here in the UK. No, we're referring to the fact that the next time we write a WAYP, we'll all know what the PS4K – or Neo – actually is. Exciting stuff, eh? Let's hope it doesn't leak on NeoGAF before Andy House hits the stage...

Sony Reveals Extensive Tokyo Game Show 2016 Line Up

Not long now

Okay, so maybe the Tokyo Game Show doesn't quite bring in the hits like E3 or even Gamescom, but all the same, it's a big event for those primarily interested in what Japan has to offer. With this year's show now only a couple of weeks away, publishers are starting to ramp up the hype by announcing what they have in store - and Sony's...

PSN Down for Some as Web Rages Over Connection Issues

Offline and out

Battlefield 1's servers may be a bit more functional today, but Sony's aren't it seems. While not everyone appears to be affected, reports are swirling that PlayStation Network is having a few hiccups – despite the platform holder failing to comment at the time of typing. Most likely this is just a temporary blip, as was the case...

PlayStation Now Review - The State of Cloud Gaming in 2016

Stream machine

PlayStation Now has been a fixture in the Sony furniture for some time now, and that's left it a little misunderstood. In absence of true backward compatibility on the PlayStation 4, many see it as a solution for PlayStation 3 gameplay on the Japanese giant's new-gen machine. But, as its recent release on the PC testifies, the...
