Push Rewind: PS4 Firmware Update 2.00, Grand Theft Auto V Bundles, NPD Sales

PS4 Firmware Update 2.00, Grand Theft Auto V Bundles, NPD Sales

The evil within

Push Rewind is back from the dead ready to haunt you ahead of Hallowe’en. Actually, this editor was simply too busy to put together this regular feature last week, so unfortunately it had to lay low for a few days. Thankfully, we’re back with a vengeance this time – and with more reviews and features than you can shake a...

Review: Jet Car Stunts (PlayStation Network)

Jet Car Stunts (PlayStation Network)

Trials and error

Jet Car Stunts’ arrival on the PlayStation 3 and Vita marks the popular mobile game’s first foray onto consoles. Historically, adapted smartphone titles end up feeling a little, well, off when they’re converted to consoles – but there are exceptions. The big question, then, is whether Grip Games has managed to make True...

Store Preview: Legend of Korra, Samurai Warriors 4, Just Dance 2015

Legend of Korra, Samurai Warriors 4, Just Dance 2015

Korra, blimey

There’s set to be a spot of animal magic on the PlayStation Store this week, as zany side-scroller Escape Goat 2 bleats aside the competition, and trots onto Sony’s next-gen system. It’ll be joined by fellow curiosity Fluster Cluck, a four-player party game starring chickens in space suits. It’s a jungle out there. If...

What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 43

Sweet talker

Like a particularly aggressive salesman, WAYP refuses to get out of your face. It only feels like a few days ago that this editor was compiling Issue 42, but already Issue 43 is here – we’ll be penning the Christmas special soon. Until then, it’s business as usual: we’ll tell you everything that we’re playing, and then open...

PlayStation's Leading Ladies Get a Little More Affordable in NA PSN Flash Sale

Girl power

You’ll be able to spend some quality time with PlayStation’s most popular female protagonists this weekend – and you won’t have to break your bank balance in the process. Sony’s discounted tons of top titles such as Fat Princess, Mirror’s Edge, and Portal 2 for the next few days only – with some of the prices going seriously...

News: September NPD: Sony Silences Analysts as PS4 Sales Surge

September NPD: Sony Silences Analysts as PS4 Sales Surge

Nine month winning streak rolls on

Michael Pachter appears to enjoy pushing gamers’ buttons, so we doubt that he’ll care too much about the egg on his face right now; either way, his prediction that the PlayStation 4’s winning streak would end in September was, well, wrong. Sony actually managed a ninth month atop the NPD sales charts, with

Store Update: 15th October 2014 (Europe)

15th October 2014 (Europe)

The raunchy, the creepy, and the creative

This week's selection is leaving us spoiled, and we haven't even hit November yet. If you're eager to gear up ready for some pre-Hallowe'en thrills, there's The Evil Within and Lone Survivor: The Director’s Cut. Meanwhile, if you're looking to live life on the wild side, then you can play with just the...

Review: Don't Starve: Giant Edition (PlayStation Network - Vita)

Don't Starve: Giant Edition (PlayStation Network - Vita)

The mysterious beyond

Our review for roguelike survival title Don't Starve and its Reign of Giants expansion discussed the gaming equivalent of Marmite. With its unforgiving, trial-and-error gameplay, it will either leave you in utter frustration, or hook you like fellow crafting sim MineCraft. But with the title now available on the PlayStation...

Store Update: 14th October 2014 (North America)

14th October 2014 (North America)

Take your pick

Has anyone else got a better introductory sentence? These weekly PlayStation Store updates come around so quickly that we feel like a broken record at times. Still, we suppose that complaining about that fact gives us a new lead in to this North American refresh, which hosts the likes of The Evil Within and Borderlands: The...

Out This Week: Borderlands, The Evil Within, Minecraft: PS Vita Edition, Peggle 2

Borderlands, The Evil Within, Minecraft: PS Vita Edition, Peggle 2

Oh my goodness

Holy schnitzel, if you thought that last week’s edition of Out This Week was stacked with an insurmountable number of new releases, then this instalment is in a whole different league. With the summer being comparatively barren for new PlayStation software, we’re not sure why developers big and small have decided to deploy their...

Review: Senran Kagura Shinovi Versus (PlayStation Vita)

Senran Kagura Shinovi Versus (PlayStation Vita)

Well rounded

First impressions count for a lot in this fickle industry. Whether it's art style, design choices, or DLC policies, it's surprisingly easy to lose all interest in a game that doesn't initially match up to your personal preferences. For Senran Kagura Shinovi Versus, this is a big problem, as from the word go, you're bombarded by big,...

No Fair! Japan's Getting The Unfinished Swan on PS4 and Vita Next Week

Still not finished, apparently

You may recall a rumour that was floating about the internet late last year which suggested that PlayStation 3 classic The Unfinished Swan would be recklessly flinging paint onto the PlayStation 4. The speculations were soon shot down, but we've kept our fingers crossed ever since. Apparently all our appendage-based...

Killzone: Mercenary Prepares for PlayStation TV with Patch

Show stopper

We’re not entirely sure why Sony’s opted to delay the PlayStation TV for a month in Europe, but those of you in North America will be able to wrap your hands around the nifty little microconsole starting from tomorrow. And in order to celebrate that momentous occasion, Guerrilla Cambridge has deployed a timely patch for Killzone:...

Fencing Sim Nidhogg Strategically Shuffles onto PS4 and Vita This Week

En garde

If there's one thing Sony's system's are sorely lacking, it's games about fencing that feature giant cosmic worms which devour the inferior player. Luckily, Nidhogg is here to fill that hideously underrepresented niche. The inventive indie joins recent PlayStation Plus freebie Sportsfriends as an example of smaller developers making...

Tales of Hearts R Cuddles Up to PlayStation TV Next Month

Love at first sight

Hotly anticipated PlayStation Vita JRPG Tales of Hearts R is striding gallantly towards its 11th November and 14th November launch in North America and Europe respectively – but there’s one last piece of good news for Bandai Namco to share before the title sticks its sword into store shelves. Indeed, those of you not keen...

What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 42

Chirp, chirp

The songbirds will keep on singing, and we’ll keep on playing video games. With the thrust of the holiday season now in full swing, there’s no shortage of titles to choose from – as is evidenced by the variety outlined by our team of writers below. Of course, with reviews to write and news to report on, there’s no real time to...
