Talking Point: Should Sony Ditch PS3, Vita Support for PlayStation Plus?

Should Sony Ditch PS3, Vita Support for PlayStation Plus?

Moving on

Like it or not, the PlayStation 3 and Vita are nearing the end of their lives. That's not to say that either system is irrelevant – this author's been playing the addictive Steamworld Heist on the latter lately – but they're not in their heyday anymore. Sony knows this: it's ceased talking about the PS3 almost entirely, and while it...

What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 128

And relax

The one problem with WAYP is that it comes around too quickly. Your humble host took a glance at the calendar this morning and realised that it's already almost August – we'll be going Christmas shopping in the blink of an eye. Anyway, you know the drill – here's what we're playing this weekend. Sammy Barker, Editor: I've signed up...

People Really Aren't Happy with August's PlayStation Plus Games

Remember to turn caps lock on

PlayStation Plus announcement day is always good for a laugh, but we doubt that anyone who has to handle Sony's social media accounts is smiling right now. Following today's Plus reveal - you can see the full list of August's games through here - PlayStation fans have grabbed their pitchforks and taken a good old stab...

PS4 Sizzles This Summer with Hot EU PlayStation Store Deals

Lots of low prices

Sony's been doing pretty well with PlayStation Store discounts this year, and this four week European Summer Sale is decent. It spans all three PlayStation platforms, of course, but it's the PlayStation 4 offers that you'll probably be most interested in – and FIFA 16 at £15.99, Bloodborne at £19.99, and Mortal Kombat X at...

UK Sales Charts: There's Very Little to See Here

As you were

There's very little to talk about in this week's UK sales charts, we're afraid; LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens topped the best sellers list for a fourth consecutive week – the fourth is clearly with it. Elsewhere, the top ten is packed with typical titles, like FIFA 16, Overwatch, and Grand Theft Auto V. Uncharted 4: A Thief's End...

Feelin' hot, hot, hot

As scorching temperatures here in the UK continue to melt away our productivity, we're not sure that we can even be arsed playing games this weekend. That said, those of you from more tropical climes may be better equipped to cope with the apocalyptic temperatures, so do let us know what you're playing in the comments section...

Review: Mobile Suit Gundam: Extreme VS-Force (PS Vita)

Mobile Suit Gundam: Extreme VS-Force (PS Vita)

Full Bust

The PlayStation Vita has its first Gundam game here in the West, and unfortunately, it's not that great. A spin-off from Japan's super popular Gundam VS series, Mobile Suit Gundam: Extreme VS-Force is essentially a watered-down edition of the arcade action property with a focus on single player content. Directly comparing this portable...

World of Final Fantasy May Be a Spin-Off, But It Definitely Shouldn't Be Ignored

Step aside, Noctis

The more that we see of World of Final Fantasy, the more we begin to think that this cutesy little role-playing release could be one of the property's best products in quite some time. With the game due out near the end of October, it's no surprise that it's currently being overshadowed by Final Fantasy XV, but we'd urge you to...

Toukiden 2's Opening Movie Will Get You in the Mood for Some Demon Slaying

The bigger they are

Koei Tecmo's revealed Toukiden 2's opening CG movie, and it's pretty much exactly what you'd expect. A non-specific main character teams up with the sequel's refreshed cast and they hack a giant Oni to bits in stylish fashion. Hey, at least the video's being true to the game. Still, it's worth a watch if you're looking to...
