The Invizimals Put Up a Fresh Fight on PlayStation Vita This Month

Hide and seek

It doesn’t feel like that long since the last major Invizimals outing launched in Europe, but already the sequel has apparated into sight. A huge success in its native Spain, Invizimals: The Resistance is set to launch on Sony’s handheld system on 29th October, and will plot the return of Brian Blessed’s brilliant beard. Who...

Yes! PSone Title Vib Ribbon Is Rockin' and Rollin' onto the PS Store

Fashionably late

Remember when, for a few fleeting seconds, it seemed like new SCEA president Shawn Layden was going to say something interesting during Sony’s big E3 press conference this year? The animated executive seemed to segue into a segment about legendary PSone release Vib Ribbon – only to drop the title as quickly as he touched upon...

UK Sales Charts: None Shall Pass FIFA 15, As Shadow of Mordor Enters in Second

Lord of the league

FIFA 15 fought off its first big competitor for the title this week, remaining at the summit of the UK sales charts – despite the excellent Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor deploying on Friday. The Lord of the Rings spin-off entered in second, netting the biggest ever British launch for a game based on the fantasy franchise. The...

Review: Futuridium EP Deluxe (PlayStation 4)

Futuridium EP Deluxe (PlayStation 4)

Spacecubes

The work of a space pilot is never done – and in Futuridium EP Deluxe, you'll learn this firsthand. This retro themed shooter attempts to combine classic genre tropes with modern sensibilities, while also providing a cacophony of visual and sonic stimulation. But does this ship reach warp speed, or could it have used a bit longer in the...

What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 41

Neon pie

We’re teetering on the precipice of gameageddon. Our super secret review document is filled with titles, reviewers have been assigned, and Push Square Towers is awash with complaints regarding the length of certain releases. Anybody would think that we’d entered the third circle of Hell or something. Still, with such animation behind...

DriveClub, Alien: Isolation, NBA 2K15, PlayStation Plus Freebies

It's full of stars

PlayStation Store updates can be dreadfully disappointing affairs. You wait all week for them to come around, only to find that there’s nothing in the lineup that you want to buy. We’re confident that that won’t be the case this coming Tuesday, however, as Sony has compiled one of the most exciting software rosters in...

Reaction: EGX London Hammers Another Nail in PS Vita's Coffin

EGX London Hammers Another Nail in PS Vita's Coffin

Dead too soon

Sony managed to squeeze a double-decker bus onto its booth at EGX London last week, but we didn’t spot a single PlayStation Vita. The flailing format has been largely ignored at the platform holder’s various press conferences this year, but has always enjoyed a strong showfloor presence, with titles such as Freedom Wars and

News: What Do the PlayStation Vita's First Themes Look Like?

What Do the PlayStation Vita's First Themes Look Like?

Suits you, sir

Unlike the PlayStation 4, the PlayStation Vita has always been relatively customisable. Straight out of the box, Sony allowed you to personalise the platform’s bubbly user interface with different colours and pictures – but that functionality’s evolved today. As part of the portable’s v3.30 firmware update, the company has...

Firmware Update 3.30 Brightens Up PS Vita with Themes

Dream theme

Want to know what’s better than first-party games? Themes, of course! Sony may have more or less pulled the plug on internal PlayStation Vita development, but at least it’s released a new firmware update that promises to bring a slew of pretty patterns to your favourite portable. Beginning today, you’ll be able to

DriveClub, Dust, and Spelunky Free for PS4 in October PS Plus Update

Batman: Arkham Asylum, Pix the Cat, and more up for grabs

Hold onto your hats, folks – it’s the monthly PlayStation Plus update for October. Always a momentous occasion – whether you’re a fan of Sony’s recent giveaways or not – this month is definitely the largest in some time. That’s partly due to the headline addition: DriveClub:...

Store Update: 1st October 2014 (Europe)

1st October 2014 (Europe)

Wiped out

As is often the case, this week’s European PlayStation Store update isn’t quite as exciting as its North American counterpart. That doesn’t mean that there’s not a ton to look forward to, though, as Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor, Futuridium EP Deluxe, and Natural Doctrine all take centre stage. The full lin

Fight the Urge to Fritter Your Finances in European PSN Sale

How low can you go?

Everyone loves an impulse purchase, but the sheer number of savings on the PlayStation Store these days is getting out of hand. Not long after discounting a number of smaller PlayStation 4 titles, Sony has announced that it’s cutting the price of a bunch of PlayStation 3 and Vita releases, too. All available from today in...

Store Update: 30th September 2014 (North America)

30th September 2014 (North America)

Lord of the updates

Yes, the holiday rush has arrived. This week’s North American PlayStation Store update is so big, we’re not entirely sure if the online plaza will be able to cope with it all. In addition to heavy hitters such as Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor and Persona 4 Arena Ultimax, there are also biggies like Sherlock Holmes: Crimes...

UK Sales Charts: FIFA 15 Kicks Destiny Off the Top

Got some balls

That didn’t last long, did it? To be fair, a quick glance at the release calendar would have told you that Destiny wouldn’t be dominating the UK sales charts forever – especially with FIFA 15 looming on the horizon. And, unsurprisingly, it’s the soccer simulation that’s knocked Bungie’s first-person shooter off the top,...
