Good news and bad news
Nintendo tends to be the best source for PlayStation sales information in Europe – and its latest financial report has delivered once again.

Best served cold
This week’s European PlayStation Store update can’t quite match the dizzying heights of its North American counterpart, but it’s still a bubbling pot of must-have content.
