Ratchet and clanger

Someone may want to get SCEA boss Shawn Layden on the blower, as Sony appears to have forgotten that Insomniac Games is working for the guys in green these days.

Five Frightfully Bad PlayStation 3 Games

Scarier than Silent Hill

We could have pricked our fingertip and penned a feature about some of the greatest horror games in this space, but there are genuinely more terrifying titles on the PlayStation 3 than Dead Space, Resident Evil 5, and F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin.

Company mistakenly posts PS4 exclusive on its Facebook page

Remember to tip the container upside down

Every meal tastes better with a hearty dollop of mayonnaise on the side, but as much as we love the taste of the egg-based condiment, we’re not sure whether we could stomach a full game about the rich, creamy sauce.

Give PlayStation Themed Gift Cards This Christmas

Santa's sack-boy
