Cyberpunk Bartender Action Finds PS Vita at the Bottom of a Bottle

Jar time

There are some games that are easy to describe – and others that aren't. VA-11 HALL-A: Cyberpunk Bartender Action is one of those titles that's so downright bizarre that we don't even know where to start – but we'll try anyway. A self-described "booze-'em-up", this baffling PlayStation Vita title from Sukeban Games marries waifus with...

Cut-price content

A ton of top PlayStation titles have had their digital prices slashed in Europe this week, as Sony's online plaza aims to explore what's big in Japan.

Whispering Willows Has an Out-of-Body Experience on PS4, Vita

Look upon thyself

E3 2015 didn't bring as many of the smaller games as this author was expecting, but we suppose that that's because new ones are announced literally everyday on the PlayStation Blog. Whispering Willows is one such title, which is set to debut on the PlayStation 4 and Vita from 30th June in Europe and North America. It'll launch...

PlayStation Vita Passes 4 Million Units in Japan

Small consolation

There's been very little cause for PlayStation Vita owners to celebrate of late, but Sony's diminutive device has just hit a major milestone in Japan, crossing the 4,000,000 unit threshold. This number takes into account both handheld and PlayStation TV sales, but seeing as they're both built upon the same hardware, we reckon...

Size matters

Steady as a rock

While the PlayStation Vita may be a "legacy" system these days, Sony clearly still sees the need to increase the device's software stability. A new firmware update – numbered v3.52 for those keeping count – deployed overnight, offering no other tangible changes. To grab the download, just head to the Settings bubble and select...

23rd June 2015 (North America)

A surprisingly big one

The calm after the storm? Those ripples you see in the glass of water before you are not from a nearing T-Rex, but from a tidal wave of software instead. Batman: Arkham Knight is obviously the big new arrival this week, but special mentions must go to Devil May Cry 4 and PlanetSide 2, too. What are you buying? PS4 Games:...

Sony: We Aren't Making Vita Games Because of Consumer Expectations

Say what?

Don't hold your breath for any big budget PlayStation Vita games. Sony stopped seriously supporting the handheld long ago, but its executives are getting to a point where they're so blunt it hurts. Speaking to Game Informer, Worldwide Studios president Shuhei Yoshida said that the real reason the Vita isn't being supported is because...

Pump Yourself Up with This PlayStation Montage

Games! Games! Games!

E3 2015's now well over, which means that plenty of post-show padding content is being published – not least on this very site.

So, What Is World of Final Fantasy on PS4 and Vita Exactly?

Final Fantasy for a new generation

When it was first unveiled at Sony's E3 2015 press conference, no one was quite sure what to make of the cutesy World of Final Fantasy. From what we could tell, it seemed to be a more traditional role-playing game, complete with a colourful world and cameos from various Final Fantasy characters and creatures from...

Your Ultimate Guide to All of E3 2015's Biggest News, Trailers, and Announcements

What a week that was

Can you believe it? E3 2015 just about done after almost a solid week of hectic coverage. For us, it's time for a break, but for you, the next couple of weeks are going to seem decidedly drab in comparison - perhaps even boring. Still, this year's Los Angeles-based expo proved to be well worth the fuss, granting us five big...

What's Going on with Gravity Rush 2?

Come, come, kitty, kitty

Gravity Rush is one of this author's favourite new franchises of the past five years. Kat's inaugural outing on the PlayStation Vita may not have been perfect, but it had enough personality and gameplay nuance to make it a property worth investing in. It's a shame, then, that following the announcement of a sequel a few...
