Not an enormous one, mind

At long last, the PlayStation 4 has launched in China. The system was due out earlier in the year, but a last-minute delay pushed the machine back until March. There were no similar setbacks earlier today, though, as a modest turnout welcomed the console in the colossal country. Judging by these photos posted on

PSN Finally Has a Status Page in the United States

All systems go

The PlayStation Network has been sturdier than Novak Djokovic's glutes of late, but we've been saying for a while that the worst part of Sony's server woes is the lack of communication from the company in the know.

Daylight robbery

The cops of Battlefield Hardline should forget about the gang wars and turn their attention to the daylight robbery occurring on the PlayStation Store, as EA's flogging one version of the first-person shooter for £104.99.

Review: La-Mulana EX (PlayStation Vita)

La-Mulana EX (PlayStation Vita)

Temple of Doom

Back in the good old days, a game wasn't even considered playable unless it was so hard that you could never actually see beyond the first few levels – that was just how we got our value for money. The late 1980s were a time when men were men – even when they were pre-pubescent or, God forbid, female – and chest hair, flat caps,...
