There's a flaw in Sony's PlayStation Network "Welcome Back" package that was always going to occur
While Sony's offering a pretty compelling selection of games, the hardcore fans are likely to be the ones that miss out — mainly because they'll already own the choices. Still, think outside of the hardcore circle and Sony's "Welcome Back"...
We're downloading all 15GB of the DC Universe Online beta as we type
The MMO stress-test has been released for PlayStation Plus subscribers in Europe today (that's all of you) and will run right through the holiday season. The download's handled in two parts — a fairly tiny client followed by a whopping 15GB download. It's handled similarly to the MAG beta, the main difference being that the..
C'mon - no matter what you think of the PSP, $9
99 for games such as Patapon 2, Loco Roco 2 and Syphon Filter: Logan's Shadow are super-bargains. Other "Favourites" include Ape Escape: On The Loose, SOCOM: Fireteam Bravo and Twisted Metal: Head On. Sony'll also be offering American gamers a three-game incentive to buy a new PSPgo, including LittleBigPlanet PSP, Ratchet & Clank: Size..
There's something a little iffy about Uncharted 2: Among Thieves' denial of Best Game during last night's video game BAFTAs
Despite beating everything to win four gongs at last night's awards show, Batman: Arkham Asylum managed to walk away with the Best Game gong — despite being beaten by Uncharted 2 in numerous other characters. Don't get us...
ELSPA's confirmed that Modern Warfare 2 was the biggest selling game for the Playstation 3 in 2009
The news comes shortly after Modern Warfare 2 was announced as the biggest game of the year by ELSPA, raking in sales of £67million in just one week. The game's now pulled in over $1billion. Sitting next to Modern Warfare 2 in the Playstation 3's...
If you were quick enough to pick up that £150 PSPgo from HMV yesterday, you should consider yourself happy as Larry [who is Larry? - ed]
Sony just announced via the Playstation Blog that Europeans who own a PSPgo can pick up a free game as a Holiday present from Sony. All you need to do is jump onto the Playstation Store through your PSP, download...

Word up to one and all, we'll be taking a trip back in time to the Renaissance this week
Will you? PushSquare's Playstation Pick Of The Week: Assassin's Creed II (EU/USA) Ubisoft's biggest new IP of the generation returns for a second dose in the renaissance period this week across Europe and the US. Looks like Ubisoft have really stepped up the...
We know what you're thinking
You're thinking, "Do-do-do-doo-doo." That's ok though, we are too. SCEE have confirmed to CVG this morning that the PSP version of LittleBigPlanet will hit UK PSPs this November 20th. Yo, that's not far away folks.
Would you like to dress your Sackboy up as Nathan Drake, Chloe Frazer, some dudes from Motorstorm, the Helghast or
.. a tank? You're totally going to need to preorder LittleBigPlanet PSP from GameStop then. We really hope these costumes get released commercially too because, well, a Sackboy Drake is just too much for us to resist.
We've been playing Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars today
But you know what's exciting — having a PSPgo with both Chinatown Wars and LittleBigPlanet on the same system. Amazing. Still... That has very little to do with this story. We just wanted to say, once again, just how awesome Chinatown Wars is. 'Cos it rocks. A recent LittleBigWorkshop post...
com</a> have discovered a little tid-bit as part of a TGS fact sheet — LittleBigPlanet PSP is due to release in the East this December. We're still listed as an "autumn" release here in Europe, hopefully Sony can provide a few more concrete details over the coming months.
Sackboy's looking just as charming as ever in these newly released screens from LittleBigPlanet PSP
This scene depicted in the new set over at Joystiq shows Sackboy taking to the stage and demanding applause. It's all so charming. Oh Sackboy, you make us swoon.
For us, the selling point of LittleBigPlanet PSP is being able to create levels on the move
For some it will probably be participating in multiplayer sessions of LBP while in the garden or something. We're afraid if your someone looking forward to the latter, LittleBigPlanet PSP will not support online multiplayer. "It's the one thing we've...
We're more likely to make levels on our Playstation Portable with LittleBigPlanet PSP if we're being totally honest
The fact that you can play the PSP anywhere, means we're likely to sit hunched over our shiny PSP Go's on the train working on wonderful concoctions on the way to work. So it's pretty much amazing that Studio Cambridge and Media Molecule have managed to squash pretty much the entirety..
The week of another massive games convention is upon us
Sony are scheduled to show up at the event next week and deliver a press conference on Tuesday 18th at 7:00PM CET. But what can we reasonably expect from the event? We look past the hype to deliver our expectations for Sony at GamesCom 2009. PS3 Slim With so many rumours in the Playstation 3...
It's about bloody time
Many of us were waiting for this to happen around the time of LittleBigPlanet's release last year. It didn't quite happen then, but now it's about to. Sony have secured a deal with Impact International to put Sackboy, erm, everywhere — plush items, bean toys, bobbleheads, mugs, bags; you name it - it's coming. In what is probably a smart move to make Sackboy the new..
Siliconera have discovered an option within LittleBigPlanet PSP that hints at purchasable download levels for the new portable platformer
Downloadable levels are one of the more requested additions to the already well supported LittleBigPlanet PS3 title, so it would make sense to build that functionality into the PSP title. But only if there are...
The Playstation 3 version of LittleBigPlanet comes with 50 story levels on the disc
LittleBigPlanet PSP will have 30. That's quite a substantial total when you consider the difference in size of the medium the games are delivered on - one on Blu-Ray, the other UMD/digital download. Assuming the game garners a rather hardcore audience (and we think it's actually going to be better building levels on..
As expected, LittleBigPlanet PSP will talk to the Playstation 3 iteration of LittleBigPlanet to unlock "bonus content"
There are no details on exactly what that content is yet, but we're hoping it's like, a PSP Go outfit for Sackboy or something. Sony are apparently going to plough a "multi-million marketing campaign" behind the game - which makes sense given the PSP Go's launch later..
Above is a video of the PSP Go running Gran Turismo PSP courtesy of our friends over at Fase Extra
Is there anything more beautiful? We're not quite sure. The PSP Go has really grown on us as a piece of hardware over the past few weeks. We can't wait to get our hands on the system this October. After the jump is some more Go footage, this time...
The jewel in Sony's crown last year was LittleBigPlanet
With the "Play. Create. Share" mandate we've probably spent more time coming back to LittleBigPlanet than any other game. There's always something new to do, and you can't say that about many games. Having said that - creation can be time consuming. It's something I'd probably enjoy doing more in the car or train that sitting at home..
