News: Plenty of PS4 Titles Discounted in NA Extended Play Sale

Plenty of PS4 Titles Discounted in NA Extended Play Sale

Never stop playing

If your wallet's still recovering from last week's Flash Sale, then you may want to give your browser's back button a great big prod before reading on: Sony has announced another PlayStation Store sale in North America. This one has an Extended Play theme, meaning that it centres on Season Passes, and various double packs. The...

Store Update: 19th May 2015 (North America)

19th May 2015 (North America)

Crop circles

Don't make us type out the name of CD Projekt Red's latest game again – we must be approaching triple figures by now. Instead, we'll spotlight some of the smaller titles available as part of this week's North American PlayStation Store update... Like Farming Simulator 15. The rest of the office won't let your host write it too much,...

Out This Week: The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, Destiny: House of Wolves, Farming Simulator 15

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, Destiny: House of Wolves, Farming Simulator 15

On the scent

If your name's not The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, then you may be asking yourself why you weren't delayed into next week. Seriously, it's hard to see anything breaking through the hype that's currently circling CD Projekt Red's open world escapade like a (white) wolf. To be fair, though, there's something for everyone here, from the...

Store Preview: The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, Farming Simulator 15, and More

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, Farming Simulator 15, and More

Beware the big bad wolf

It's certainly not the biggest PlayStation Store update next week, but it may just have a little something for everyone. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is undoubtedly the hot new arrival, and if you didn't know already, that'll be available on the PlayStation 4. We intend to have lots more coverage of Geralt of Rivia's adventure...

Talking Point: What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 68

What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 68

Brilliance in brevity

A short but sweet edition of WAYP this week, as the bulk of the team's busy with various review assignments. Even though we're technically in the "lull" before E3, there's still tons of software deploying on the PlayStation 4 – partly due to those all-important indie titles that Sony has signed up. Will the smaller digital...

News: PSN Offline for Some as the Weekend Arrives

PSN Offline for Some as the Weekend Arrives

Down and out

That massive Flash Sale must have overwhelmed Sony's servers, as the PlayStation Network is currently offline. While we're seeing plenty of complaints around the web, not everyone here at Push Square Towers is affected, so hopefully this is a minor hiccup, rather than a full-scale outage. Follow us on Twitter for up-to-the-minute PSN...

News: PS4, PS3, Vita Prices Plunge in Fab NA Flash Sale

PS4, PS3, Vita Prices Plunge in Fab NA Flash Sale

Everything under a fiver

It's the weekend, so we're guessing that you're in the market for some cut price PlayStation Network software. Sony's back in North America with another quite frankly outrageous Flash Sale, spanning the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and Vita. Most of the games available will set you back just $4.80, like the Mass Effect...

News: April 2015 NPD: PS4 Slumps to Shock Defeat

April 2015 NPD: PS4 Slumps to Shock Defeat

Xbox One brushes PS4 aside

Well, well, well – this is unexpected. We reported on the PlayStation 3's failure to top the NPD charts for many years, but we've already fallen into a pattern where we expect the PlayStation 4 to lead. However, the numbers coming out of the United States for April 2015 may wake both Sony and ourselves up, as the Xbox...

News: Sci-Fi JRPG Lost Dimension Entrusts Us with a Western Release Date and Free DLC

Sci-Fi JRPG Lost Dimension Entrusts Us with a Western Release Date and Free DLC

No betrayal here

If you'll recall, we wrote about PlayStation 3 and Vita title Lost Dimension a little while back, and exclaimed that it seemed to have the makings of an interesting role-playing game. Atlus' creation sees you team up with a bunch of stylish teens, and as the plot progresses, you'll need to decide who's an enemy, and who isn't...

News: Badland: Game of the Year Edition Brings Yet More Quirky Platforming to PS4, PS3, and Vita

Badland: Game of the Year Edition Brings Yet More Quirky Platforming to PS4, PS3, and Vita

How many's that now?

We've completely lost count of how many side scrolling platformers are available on PlayStation platforms. With the advent of the PS4 and its keen indie initiative, it feels like we get about ten platforming-puzzler hybrids pushed onto the PlayStation Store every week. Lo and behold, here we have, of course, the announcement of...

News: Japanese Sales Charts: Vita Overtakes PS4 as Not a Single New-Gen Title Enters Top 20

Japanese Sales Charts: Vita Overtakes PS4 as Not a Single New-Gen Title Enters Top 20

Ouch

The PlayStation 4's steadily slipping down the Japanese charts, as it suffered another sales drop last week. Sony's latest console shifted 15,992 units as it fell into third place, behind the New 3DS LL and the PS Vita. The latter continues to escape store shelves at a solid rate, though, selling through 17,273 units. You can compare the...

Store Update: 13th May 2015 (Europe)

13th May 2015 (Europe)

Tasty stuff

If you like indie games, you're in luck this week, as there are a lot of them being added as part of the European PlayStation Store update. Nom Nom Galaxy, Lost Orbit, and Toren are perhaps the biggest names in that department – but a quick shout out to Schrodinger's Cat, too. Of

Store Update: 12th May 2015 (North America)

12th May 2015 (North America)

We go again

People say that the PlayStation 4 has no games, but we often look at the North American PlayStation Store update and weep. Our review planning document can't keep up with all the new arrivals, and when you take a look at the sheer scale of new releases available in this week's refresh, you may be able to appreciate why. Of course, it's...

Out This Week: Final Fantasy X|X-2 PS4, The Last of Us: Left Behind, Double Dragon

Final Fantasy X|X-2 PS4, The Last of Us: Left Behind, Double Dragon

Yuna you want it

It's a bit of a filler week here on Planet PlayStation, as a storm labelled The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt lurks on the horizon. There's no doubt that CD Projekt RED's hotly anticipated role-playing release is the title that's on everyone's lips, and so proceedings are looking a little light this time out. To be fair, though, there's no...

News: UK Sales Charts: Project CARS Roars to Pole Position on PS4

UK Sales Charts: Project CARS Roars to Pole Position on PS4

Racing ahead

Crowd funded racing game Project CARS has pulled ahead of the pack, scoring the first simulation podium position since GRID 2 all the way back in 2013. The title sold best on the PlayStation 4 – which is not especially surprising considering the lack of similar games on Sony's system – and finished in front of familiar favourites...
