Hearts on fire

What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 76

Let's go round again

And just like that, it's the weekend. To be honest, your humble host is feeling a bit drained after the excitement – and subsequent late night – of the Shenmue III Kickstarter, so you'll find no witty comments within this drawn out pre-amble.

Ar nosurge Plus (PS Vita)

Passionate beats

The PlayStation Vita has a formidable catalogue of Japanese role-playing games that always seems to be expanding, but it's fairly easy to make the argument that Ar nosurge Plus is one of the better additions.

PlayStation Mobile Officially Ends Distribution Tomorrow

A rather short chapter

Just a friendly reminder: no more PlayStation Mobile games will be released after tomorrow, and you won't be able to purchase any existing ones. Sony's failed mobile platform was announced to be coming to an end a while back, but given that we thought its last game, Oh, Deer!, was good enough to warrant some attention, we...

14th July 2015 (Europe)

Take your pick

Oh right, Sony's still doing that weird thing where it posts the European PlayStation Store update on Tuesday, but a ton of the content doesn't actually release until later in the week. We forgot this time SCEE, but we'll be back next week and we'll be on time, so stick that in your pipe and smoke it. PS4 Games: Arcade Archives...

Godspeed

It's a surprisingly big week for new releases here on Planet PlayStation, as the industry is rocked from its post-E3 hangover with a series of noteworthy new titles.

The Witcher 3 PS4 Patches, Rocket League, And Not a Whole Lot Else

Say what you want

If the industry was ever going to take a week off, it picked the right one. Push Square Towers has been too busy perched in front of the tennis to talk about video games – but given the overall winners, this author kinda wished that he hadn't bothered. In all seriousness, it's been a quiet few days on Planet PlayStation. Still,...

Sony Wants to Amplify Indie Scene in Japan

Bold goals

Indie games represent a gigantic part of the market in Europe and North America right now, but they're less popular in Japan. We're starting to see developers like Yu Suzuki, Keiji Inafune, and Koji Igarashi break away from big publishers in order to go it alone, but these examples are rare.
