    There is a God

    Atlus fans have had it rough in Europe over the past few years.

    Sony may be days away from deploying the PlayStation 4 Pro, but that hasn't stopped it from announcing a trio of new PS4 Slim bundles. The 1TB packs set to deploy this November will each include a copy of Uncharted 4: A Thief's End, though you will get a couple of extra games on top depending on which you select. The...

  • Store Update 25th October 2016 (Europe)

    All the fun of the fair

    These PlayStation Store updates get more ridiculous by the week. There are no less than 37 new PlayStation 4 games launching as part of today's European restock, though there are some bundles and duplicates padding that number out a touch. Still… What?! These are crazy times, readers. PS4 Games: Farming Simulator 17 –...

  • Store Update 18th October 2016 (Europe)

    Bat and battlefield

    There are no prizes for guessing the highlight on the European PlayStation Store this week – and, no, it's not Batman: Return to Arkham. (Yes, that's actually out today!) No, top billing this time goes to Battlefield 1. Are you planning to pick up the World War I shooter? PS4 Games: World of Final Fantasy Dungeon Demo (Not in...

  • News Uncharted PS4 Remasters Are Releasing Separately at Retail in Spain

    Fair enough

    Earlier this month, Sony revealed that it'd be releasing the Uncharted PlayStation 4 remasters separately on the PlayStation Store in November. As it turns out, though, the trilogy of enhanced PlayStation 3 titles are actually heading to retail - in Spain, anyway. Each game will sell for €19.95, and you'll be able to pick them up...

  • Store Update 11th October 2016 (Europe)

    The biggest ever?

    This must be some kind of record! Sony's dropped the European PlayStation Store update, and between PlayStation VR and a slew of holiday heavy hitters, this has to be the largest refresh ever. This author's been writing about PlayStation for eons now, but can't ever remember this many titles dropping in the same week. PS4 Games:...

  • News October Sale Hits EU PlayStation Store, Get Half Off on Loads of PS4 Games

    Uncharted, Odin Sphere, and more

    It's time once again for a hefty sale over on the European PlayStation Store, this time to coincide with, er, the fact that it's October, we guess. The featured discounts will last until the 19th of this month, so you've got a fair amount of time to weigh up your desires while looking worryingly at your wallet. On...

  • Store Update 4th October 2016 (Europe)

    An offer you can't refuse?

    It's a gangster's paradise on the European PlayStation Store this week, as Mafia III is undoubtedly the biggest new addition. It's joined by stealth title Aragami, motorcycle sim RIDE 2, cutesy platformer Shu, and a demo for Outlast 2. Not a bad selection at all, eh? PS4 Games: Dead Synchronicity: Tomorrow Comes...

  • Store Update 27th September 2016 (Europe)

    Back of the net

    Stock up on baked beans, say goodbye to your loved ones, plump your favourite cushion – the Christmas rush is here. Well, technically not quite actually. Don't get us wrong, this is a busy European PlayStation Store update, but it's padded by about a billion different versions of FIFA 17, which makes it look larger than it is. PS4...

  • Store Update 20th September 2016 (Europe)

    Your Destiny

    Destiny: Rise of Iron takes top billing on the European PlayStation Store this week, bringing ample incentive for you to return to Bungie's sci-fi universe. It's been joined by a bunch of lower-profile titles, including Dear Esther, The Bunker, and Virginia – all of which are at the very least worth a look. PS4 Games: TRIALS OF THE...

  • Store Update 13th September 2016 (Europe)

    To the hockey

    So many PlayStation 4 games. Although, to be fair, this week's European PlayStation Store update is padded by à la carte remaster compilations and about a billion different versions of NHL 17. Does anyone even want the standard version on this side of the Atlantic? PS4 Games: EA Sports FIFA 17 demo 13th September Dead Rising Triple...

  • Store Update 6th September 2016 (Europe)

    Those PS4 games just keep on coming

    This week's European PlayStation Store update is a reasonably large one, with twenty new PS4 titles hitting the digital shelves either today or a little later this week. Highlights include eerily wacky The Tomorrow Children, ancient MMO Star Trek Online, and the weirdly promising Virginia. See anything that takes...

  • Store Update 30th August 2016 (Europe)

    Are you sitting comfortably?

    Where are those people that say the PlayStation 4 has no games? Just get a whiff of this week's lineup – it's over 15 titles strong! And it's not all rubbish either – the likes of Resident Evil 4, God Eater 2: Rage Burst, and Hue are all top names. Plus, there's the Battlefield 1 open beta to look forward to. PS4...

  • News PlayStation Plus Price Won't Increase in Europe

    That's a Plus

    Fresh from the news that PlayStation Plus will cost a little more in North America starting 22nd September, Sony has told Game Reactor that it has no plans to increase the subscription's price here in Europe. The platform holder did, however, alter the price of the quarterly and monthly payment

  • News Retro PS4 Releases Go Cheap in Massive European PlayStation Store Sale

    What's old is new again

    Sony's digging out its DayGlo and going retro on the PlayStation Store this week, as a host of classic PlayStation 4 games have been discounted. Starting today in Europe, you'll be able to grab dozens of PS2 Classics like Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas and PaRappa the Rapper 2 at discounted price points, as well as several...

  • Store Update 23rd August 2016 (Europe)

    Amadeus, ama-Deus Ex

    Phew! A big week on the European PlayStation Store this time is headlined by Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, which is out today. It's joined by Playdead's incredible Inside, as well as the likes of Worms W.M.D and the new beta version of Ni-Oh. Plenty to get your teeth stuck into, then, but what are you buying? PS4 Games: Deus Ex:...

  • News PS4's Completely Crushing the Competition in Germany

    Sony's got almost 70 per cent market share

    As we've written so many times already, Sony's dominance this generation can't be attributed solely to favourable policies or press conference clangers – it's the legwork that it's invested into Europe over the years that's doing the business. New figures coming out of Germany show that the PlayStation...

  • Store Update 16th August 2016 (Europe)

    Dance the night away

    Now that No Man's Sky is out, the summer lull is back until Deus Ex: Mankind Divided rolls around. There are some decent titles in this week's European PlayStation Store update, though – Bound and Grow Up being more than worthy of mention. There's the new episode of Hitman to look forward to, too. PS4 Games: Bound 16th...

  • Store Update 9th August 2016 (Europe)

    No man's hai

    We feel a bit sorry for everything else on the PlayStation Store this week, as nothing's going to get the same amount of attention as No Man's Sky. The likes of [email protected] and Fahrenheit do deserve a look, though – and Bears Can't Drift?! has us intrigued, too. PS4 Games: [email protected] 9th August Battleship 12th August Transformers: Fall of...

  • News Persona 5's European Release Date Will Make Fans Very Happy Indeed

    We can hardly believe it

    Persona 5 is launching in North America on the 14th February 2017, and it'll be launching on that same day in Europe. Yep, you read that right - Europe won't have to wait for an Atlus game. It's like all of our dreams have come true. And we've got Deep Silver to thank. The publisher announced that it was stepping in to...

  • Store Update 2nd August 2016 (Europe)

    Water lot of great content

    Too many games, too little time: the PlayStation 4 is awash with exciting additions this week, with Batman and Abzu being the highlights. We must spare a moment for multiplayer favourites Tricky Towers and Overcooked, too – the former of which is free with PlayStation Plus. PS4 Games: Dead Island Retro Revenge 1st...

  • News PS4 Sizzles This Summer with Hot EU PlayStation Store Deals

    Lots of low prices

    Sony's been doing pretty well with PlayStation Store discounts this year, and this four week European Summer Sale is decent. It spans all three PlayStation platforms, of course, but it's the PlayStation 4 offers that you'll probably be most interested in – and FIFA 16 at £15.99, Bloodborne at £19.99, and Mortal Kombat X at...
