News: Ask Shuhei Yoshida Anything in Special PlayStation Experience Panel

Ask Shuhei Yoshida Anything in Special PlayStation Experience Panel

Where are all the exclusives?

“How do you cope with being badgered on Twitter by irritated fans 24/7?” That’s probably what we’d ask Sony Worldwide Studios suit Shuhei Yoshida given half the chance – and you’ll have an opportunity to pit your own queries to the popular president as part of the upcoming PlayStation Experience event in...

Sketchcross for PS Vita Looks Like a Game You May Already Like

Picture perfect

Innovation is overrated. Alright, maybe that’s a bit too much – but, look, sometimes there’s comfort to be found in things that are familiar. It’s the reason that associate editor Robert Ramsey rarely eats anything other than Margherita pizza, for example – and also why this author has been wearing the same tracksuit...

Review: Race the Sun (PlayStation 4)

Race the Sun (PlayStation 4)

Flight to freedom

Race the Sun is a very simple game. That isn't meant as a criticism – indeed, the title's focus is arguably its greatest asset. After a successful Kickstarter, this unique take on a popular genre has made its way onto Sony's systems with almost non-existent fanfare. But, do its straightforward systems make for a satisfying...

Duke Nukem 3D: Megaton Edition Comes and Gets Some in January

See you in Hell

Duke Nukem 3D: Megaton Edition temporarily launched in Europe earlier this week, but the port must have been all out of gum, as it’s since been removed from the PlayStation 3 and Vita storefronts. In truth, this is likely just another example of SCEE’s incompetence – we’re still waiting for Costume Quest 2, by the way –...

Store Update: 5th November 2014 (Europe)

5th November 2014 (Europe)

All outta gum

There are a few unexpected surprises included as part of this week’s European PlayStation Store update. While the inescapable Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare is the obvious headline addition, there’ll be plenty more guns for you to toy with in Duke Nukem 3D: Megaton Edition on the PS3 and Vita. Also worth mentioning is the...

Feature: Say Hello to Two of Sony's Aussie PS4 Indies

Say Hello to Two of Sony's Aussie PS4 Indies

They come from the land down under

Sony loves indies. It’s a slogan which, for better or worse, has come to shape the Japanese giant’s business strategy in recent months. These smaller experiences have been used to plug holes in the inevitable first year software drought, while also seeing a mini-renaissance on PlayStation Plus’ Instant Game...

Store Update: 4th November 2014 (North America)

4th November 2014 (North America)

Spacey ace

There may be more games in this North American PlayStation Store update than you can shake a stick at, but, let’s be honest, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare is the real highlight. Sledgehammer Games’ first-person shooter is looking hot to trot, and is available now on both the PS4 and PS3. Don’t worry if futuristic warfare’s not...

Out This Week: Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth, and More

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth, and More

War changes

After a short hiatus, Out This Week has returned to help you plan out your gaming time. This week is significant as it sees the arrival of Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare for the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 – the latest instalment in Activision’s blockbuster first-person brand. We’re also due the pitter-patter of a fresh...

Review: Minutes (PlayStation 4)

Minutes (PlayStation 4)

Bullet heaven

Minutes’ key art may draw comparisons to Countdown, but in Channel 4 game show terms, this is way more Rachel Riley than Des O’Connor. An energetic arcade experience, this blistering bullet hell-inspired escapade is a real breath of fresh air. And while it may not silence the anti-indie crowd, it’s a shining example of how good...

News: There Are Almost Eight Million PlayStation Plus Subscribers Globally

There Are Almost Eight Million PlayStation Plus Subscribers Globally

Level up

PlayStation Plus is a funny service. Largely unprecedented as a value proposition, it’s hard to shake the feeling that some of the premium membership’s more outrageous offerings have come back to bite it in the bottom. While the platform holder has been giving away critically acclaimed PlayStation 4 games like Velocity 2X and Dust: An...

What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 44

Day disbeliever

Surely, surely it’s not WAYP time already? The clock on this writer’s PC toolbar says that it’s Saturday, but these articles come around so quickly that we’re struggling to believe it. That said, there’s Premier League on the television and we did spot James Martin on BBC One this morning, so we’re pretty confident that...

Review: Freedom Wars (PlayStation Vita)

Freedom Wars (PlayStation Vita)

Grind and punishment

Easily one of the PlayStation Vita's most anticipated titles, Freedom Wars plops you into a dystopian future that's full of typically stylish teens and giant mechanical beasts, and tasks you with whittling down a one million year sentence of service to your not-so-lovely community. For many owners of Sony's portable console, a...

Sony's Still Bleeding Money, But PS4's in Beast Mode

Marathon sprint

The reason behind Microsoft’s temporary Xbox One price drop is looking clearer by the minute: Sony has now shipped 13.5 million PlayStation 4 consoles worldwide – and it hasn’t even been out a year yet. The company added 3.3 million units to the system’s total tally in the quarter spanning July to September, boosting game...

Slick PS4 Shooter Resogun Will Save the Last Humans on Vita

System seller

Housemarque’s throwback arcade shooter Resogun is so good that we’d quite like to have a playable version augmented into our eyelids, but seeing as that’s not physically possible, we’ll settle for a PlayStation Vita version instead. Fortunately, it sounds like the Finnish indie is working on just that, assuming that comments...

Guerrilla, Naughty Dog, Sucker Punch, and Many More Will Be at PlayStation Experience

Project Morpheus, No Man's Sky surprises, and panels planned

PlayStation Experience is approaching faster than a freight train filled with hype, and Sony has started to hint at the kind of things that you can expect to see during the December show. Writing on the PlayStation Blog, the platform holder has deployed a delicious list detailing some of...
