    Reaper what you sow

    You may have already stuffed your PlayStation 3 away in a dusty cupboard, but no one can grumble at free games. Mass Effect 3 is currently flying free for PlayStation Plus subscribers on the European PlayStation Store. This looks like a mistake to us, as it's clearly

  • Store Update 18th March 2015 (Europe)

    Daylight robbery

    The cops of Battlefield Hardline should forget about the gang wars and turn their attention to the daylight robbery occurring on the PlayStation Store, as EA's flogging one version of the first-person shooter for £104.99. Even considering the extortionate prices on Sony's online plaza, that seems especially expensive. We think that...

  • News Gut Some God of War Discounts Starting Today on the EU PlayStation Store

    Plus a few PS4 deals

    This week's European PlayStation Store deals are of the bloody kind, as the God of War franchise rips apart its pricing – preferably in horrifically violent fashion.

    It's Wednesday, which can only mean one thing: it's European PlayStation Store update day.

    Ayane angry

    And so the Dead or Alive 5: Last Round saga lurches on to round three. After failing to show up on the PlayStation Store in Europe last week, Koei Tecmo confirmed yesterday that the title would be available from Wednesday on the PlayStation 4. What of the PlayStation 3 version, however? Well, that's still in SCEE limbo, according

  • News PS4 Brawler Dead or Alive 5: Last Round Delayed Until Wednesday on EU PS Store

    Slow clap

    We suspect that the folks at Koei Tecmo feel like going all Ryu Hayabusa on Sony's ass right now, as Dead or Alive 5: Last Round has been delayed until Wednesday on the European PlayStation Store. While this doesn't sound so bad in isolation, it's worth noting that the title was due out on Friday, but failed to show up on the PlayStation...

  • News Sony's Sending Free Evolve PS4 Themes to EU PlayStation Plus Members

    Level up your device's dashboard

    PlayStation Plus more or less pays for itself when you look at the free games that get given away on a monthly basis, but the platform holder regularly sends out the odd surprise to engaged members. This Evolve PlayStation 4 theme that's being distributed in Europe is a nice little extra on top of the Instant Game...

You're especially lucky if you're a big

    Here be monsters

    There's a decent amount of variety on the PlayStation Store this week, as four-versus-one shooter Evolve stomps onto the scene along with brilliant blast-'em-up Super Stardust Ultra, which zooms onto the PlayStation 4 for the first time.

    Sony's sales on the European PlayStation Store are getting bigger and better, so it's no surprise to see hundreds of items discounted as part of this week's promotions. The headline offers revolve around Call of Duty, with dozens of games and expansion packs reduced right through February. Fancy nabbing the brilliant Call of Duty:...

  • Store Update 4th February 2015 (Europe)

    Greek tragedy

    There are no major surprises on the European PlayStation Store this week, as the highlights are very much the same as those in yesterday's North American refresh.

  • News Bloodborne's PS4 Bundle Will Inaugurate Newcomers

    Cry baby

    If you've ever tried out for a college or university sports team, then you'll know a thing or two about the inauguration process – namely that it separates the men from the boys. And we like to think of this forthcoming Bloodborne bundle in a similar way, as it should introduce PlayStation 4 newcomers to the world of next-gen with a bit...

  • News Why Has PS4's Dying Light Been Removed from the European PlayStation Store?

    Missing in action

    Between cancellations and last-minute delays, Dying Light hasn't exactly had the smoothest run up to release – but our reviews round-up is filled with messages from disgruntled gamers, asking why the title has been removed from the European PlayStation Store.

  • News PS4, PS3, and Vita Titles Reduced in European PlayStation Store Sale

    Combo breaker

    Sony's big January sale may have expired on the European PlayStation Store, but that's not stopping the manufacturer from following up with a bumper sale focusing on 2K Games' catalogue and various other digital downloads. For starters, you'll be able to acquire a bunch of the aforementioned publisher's wares at up to 80 per cent off,...

    Winged and wonderful

    We may be looking at the content pipeline for a different continent, but the highlights in this week's European PlayStation Store update are identical to those in yesterday's North American refresh. That means that Citizens of Earth, Resident Evil, and Saints Row: Gat Out of Hell are all vying for your attention. The question...

  • News What the Heck's Going on with PlayStation Store Pre-Orders in Europe?

    Pre-load problems

    There are a total of six PlayStation 4 games available to pre-order on the European PlayStation Store right now, two of which have expanded premium options. This compares pretty poorly to North America, where there's at least double that amount. Noticeable absentees include Resident Evil and Grim Fandango, both of which support...

  • Store Update 14th January 2014 (Europe)

    Dead kings

    Parts of the UK are snowed in today, so it's a good job that you don't need to go outside to shop at the PlayStation Store. To be fair, this week's shelf refresh doesn't have a whole lot to shout about, with Joe Danger 2: The Movie and add-on packs for Assassin's Creed Unity and Far Cry 4 being the only real highlights. Do you see...

  • News Far Cry 4 and Freedom Wars Scale Final EU Christmas Sale

    And that's the end of that

    Like the big box perched under your Christmas tree, Sony's big 12 Deals of Christmas initiative promised so much – only to serve up a slew of, frankly, underwhelming offers. The platform holder has put the lid on things today, announcing that for the next 48 hours, Far Cry 4 will be available for as low as £39.99 on...

  • News Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare PS4, PS3 Enlists for EU Christmas Sale

    Scatter shot

    Let’s face it: Sony’s big 12 Deals of Christmas initiative has been about as tasty as a plate full of Brussels sprouts. There have been some reasonable offers here and there, but nothing that’s going to set your trousers on fire – and this week is similar, even if there is a loophole that you may not actually be aware of...

  • News Sony May Not Have Enough PS4 Stock in Europe This Holiday

    Sell out

    Regular readers may recall our obsession with PlayStation 4 stock last Christmas.

Things have, understandably, eased out over the past twelve months – but SCE...

  • Store Update 10th December 2014 (Europe)

    A realm reborn

    There’s a free Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn trial for PlayStation 4 available as part of this month’s European PlayStation Store update, which has this editor shivering in the corner of a dark room, muttering “must resist” in a deranged fashion.

    Classics get cut prices

    PlayStation turns 20 today, meaning that while it’s not old enough to legally drink in most American states, it’s deserving of a darn good birthday bash.

    Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it’s the European PlayStation Store update, which is absolutely bursting with big games. Among the highlights this week are Grand Theft Auto V, Dragon Age: Inquisition, and, er, Rugby 15. Oh alright, maybe not the last one, then – but you get the overarching idea.

    Pole position

    It may well have been severely supply constrained at launch, but the PlayStation 4 has already passed the one million sales milestone in Germany, leaving its competitors in the dust.

    Angry Murray

    Costume Quest 2 has arrived just in time for Hallowe’en – on the PlayStation 3 at least. Sigh. Double Fine’s dress-‘em-up is just one of many delayed releases to deploy on the European PlayStation Store this week, with Nidhogg and Pier Solar HD also on the menu. Assassin’s Creed Unity is the obvious highlight, but this...

    A Lara savings

    If you were outraged at the idea of Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition being sold at full price earlier in the year, then perhaps this week’s European PlayStation Store Deal of the Week discount will make Lara Croft’s spruced up escapade a little more palatable to you. Square Enix has slashed the PlayStation 4 re-release’s price...

    There are a few unexpected surprises included as part of this week’s European PlayStation Store update.

    Late to the party

    As with its North American counterpart, this European PlayStation Store update is absolutely bursting with new releases – but there’s one irritating absentee for this editor.

    Day zero

  • Store Update 22nd October 2014 (Europe)

    Break the rules

    The early bird always catches the worm, so we guess that we’ll be forced to feed on scraps for posting the European PlayStation Store update so darn late in the day. We’d blame the delay on traffic, but, well, that’s not strictly true. Either way, a rival saying states that you’re better late than never – and we happen to...

    Avoids using Sunset Overdrive's font

    It’s getting colder and the nights are drawing in, which means that it must be time for Hallowe’en. An excuse for supermarkets to offload themed pastries and piles of plastic tat, we’d argue that the spookiest day of the year rivals most religious holidays in pure commercial terms. With that in mind,...
