  • Talking Point What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 191

    In the thick of it

    We’re in the thick of it now. There’s practically a major new game release every week through until the holidays, so you better be prepared for the onslaught – and the insane expenditure, of course. Much of our team is on assignment at the moment, and if they’re not, you can guarantee they're doing thumb exercises ahead of...

    Review Semispheres

    Puzzles: A Tale of Two Thumbs

    Semispheres, an indie puzzler from Vivid Helix, may have found its home on the PlayStation Vita with this recently released port. The game has been available on the PlayStation 4 since February, but the short running time and simple controls feel like a much better match for Sony’s “legacy” handheld. In...

  • Japanese Sales Charts Shadow of War Somehow Manages to Conquer the Top Spot

    Power of the ring?

    Well, we're not sure we saw this one coming. Middle-earth: Shadow of War has claimed the top spot of the Japanese hardware charts, despite shifting only 20,000 copies on PlayStation 4. In other words, this has been a really poor week for new releases. Indeed, traditionally styled role-playing game Lost Sphear absolutely...

  • News PS4, Vita Strategy JRPG Summon Night 6 Finally Has a Release Date in North America

    Europe coming soon

    It feels like Summon Night 6: Lost Borders has been floating around for ages. A strategy role-playing game with visual novel elements, it was announced for Western localisation back in the summer of 2016. Since then, confirmed release dates have been hard to come by. For a time, the title was due out in February of this...

  • News PS4's Sale of Dead Discounts Horror Games on NA PlayStation Store

    Your wallet's already dead

    Sony’s selling off some horror content ahead of Hallowe’en on the North American PlayStation Store, with PlayStation Plus members able to save on games such as Layers of Fear ($7.99), Murdered: Soul Suspect ($5.99), and Resident Evil 7 ($29.99). There are also savings on titles like Outlast

  • Store Update 17th October 2017 (Europe)

    Gran Turismo! South Park! PlayStation VR!

    Wow! This is a huge PlayStation Store update for a variety of reasons. The headliner is obviously Gran Turismo Sport, but we can’t possibly forget South Park: The Fractured But Whole which is a huge new arrival as well. PlayStation VR is also enjoying a great week: The Invisible Hours, Raw Data, and No...

  • UK Sales Charts The Evil Within 2 Suffers Shocking Launch

    Shadow of War can't stop FIFA 18

    The Evil Within 2 has sold less than a quarter of its predecessor’s physical launch total, making its commercial performance unquestionably the scariest thing about the survival horror sequel. The game – which we rather liked – will now be banking on Hallowe’en hype to make up the difference. It’s not the...

  • Talking Point What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 190

    War of the reds

    The editors of this very site are at war this weekend, and no, it's not because Sammy still hasn't played Persona 5. It's Liverpool vs. Manchester United, which means that bragging rights will be on the line for months to come. If you're reading this before the match, offer prayer. If you're reading afterwards, hope that the...

  • Japanese Sales Charts Dragon's Dogma Lands in Top 10, and That's About It

    Not so hot

    We hope that you like articles made of nothing, because that's what you're about to get. The latest Japanese sales charts have been released, and there's bugger all happening in the Land of the Rising Sun. Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen entered in seventh place on PlayStation 4, but it only shifted around 12,000 copies. Barely worth a...

  • Store Update 10th October 2017 (Europe)

    An avalanche

    Yup, we’re back to bonkers European PlayStation Store updates again. This week sees 28 new games arrive on Sony’s plaza, including big name sequels like Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor and The Evil Within 2. To be honest, even the Vita is having a good week, which should tell you all you need to know. PS4 Games: GT Sport...

  • UK Sales Charts FIFA 18 Tightens Its Grip on Championship Spot

    Title challenge

    Yeah, very few games would have been able to dethrone FIFA 18 in its second week on the UK sales charts, as it posted numbers that most games would be proud of in their first week on sale. Xbox One exclusive Forza Motorsport 7 was the only title to really threaten the soccer sim’s crown, and it saw its sales dip compared to its...

  • Talking Point What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 189

    On the agenda

    Well, this is it, then: the start of silly season. You better hope your backlog has been appropriately cleared, because there are a lot of games coming out over the next eight weeks, and regardless of which ones you choose, you’re going to need a lot of free time to play them all. Sammy Barker, Editor: I’ll be patiently waiting...

  • PlayStation Store Sales Charts Destiny 2 Doesn't Disappoint

    But still can't topple FIFA 18 in Europe

    With Destiny 2 sales down at retail, Bungie’s sequel needed to put in a big performance on the PlayStation Store – and, well, it topped the PlayStation Store sales charts for North America in September. But in Europe it was toppled by an even bigger brand: FIFA 18 shot straight to the number one in the...

  • Japanese Sales Charts Trails of Cold Steel III and FIFA 18 Lead the Charge on PS4

    Variety

    The latest Japanese software charts are in, and two PlayStation 4 titles are at the top. The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel III entered in first place, selling around 87,000 copies. That's not a bad showing for a sequel in a somewhat niche series. Meanwhile, FIFA 18 sprinted into second, shifting 56,000 copies. Most popular...

  • News PS4 Exclusives Heavily Discounted in EU PlayStation Store Sale

    Save on PS3, Vita, PS2, and PSone titles, too

    Sony’s leading with PlayStation exclusives in the latest European PlayStation Store sale – and this promotion covers a lot of ground. Whether it’s new-ish blockbusters like Horizon: Zero Dawn (£24.99), Ratchet & Clank (£11.99), and WipEout Omega Collection (£12.99) or remasters such as...

  • News October's Free PlayStation Plus Games Are Available Now

    Phantom pain

    October’s excellent roster of free PlayStation Plus games are available now in Europe – and should deploy in North America shortly. In case you missed the memo, the headline arrival this month is none other than Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain – an absolutely superb PlayStation 4 freebie. It’s accompanied by Amnesia:...

  • Game of the Month Top 4 PlayStation Games of September 2017

    Killer bears, lost light, super sequels, and a classic returns

    September was another good month for PlayStation gaming, making our staff vote a rather tense affair. Things are only going to get more and more heated as we move into the final few months of the year, so let's take the time to appreciate the relative calm before the storm. Bronze...

  • Store Update 3rd October 2017 (Europe)

    Calm before the storm

    Hold the phone – it’s a relatively quiet European PlayStation Store update. Well, to be clear there’s lots of stuff, but there aren’t the multitude of heavy hitters that we’ve become accustomed to in recent months. Highlights this week include, like, Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen and Battle Chasers: Nightwar. PS4...

  • UK Sales Charts FIFA 18 Bundles Do the Business for PS4

    Sony commands 60 per cent of sales

    Sony commanded a dizzying 60 per cent of launch FIFA 18 sales after snagging marketing rights to the soccer simulation. Last year it managed 53 per cent, so it’s actually improved its share of the spoils year-over-year. However, it’s worth noting that sales of the footie favourite are actually down 25 per cent...
