  • Store Update 25th August 2015 (Europe)

    The motherload

    Good grief, we don't think that European PlayStation Store updates get much bigger than this. There are no less than 15 new PlayStation 4 games out this week, and while they're not all as equally exciting, one can't argue with such an immensely impressive haul. We've rounded up all of the goods below, but do let us know what you'll be...

  • Store Update 11th August 2015 (Europe)

    Baaaaa

    We still haven't got used to the European PlayStation Store update coming before the North American one, but there's no time to dwell as we've got new releases to list. Let's not beat around the privet bush: Everybody's Gone to the Rapture is the big'un this time. Honourable mentions must go to Goat Simulator and Gauntlet: Slayer Edition,...

  • Store Update 4th August 2015 (Europe)

    The calm before the storm

    Barring a few downloadable titles, it's slim pickings this week on the European PlayStation Store. Galak-Z is the headline PlayStation 4 act, while Submerged also sloshes onto Sony's latest console, but other than that, there really isn't much to write home about. In fact, this is probably one of the smallest updates that...

    It may have taken a while, but Senran Kagura Estival Versus finally has a European release date. The brawler, which features female ninja smashing the absolute snot out of each other, will launch on PlayStation 4 and Vita in the first quarter of 2016.

  • News It Looks Like the Lighter, Less Power Hungry PS4 Has Arrived in Europe

    CUH-1200 could pave the path for a price drop

    While the first revision of the PlayStation 4 isn't quite the slim model that many of you may have had in mind, it does appear to be rolling out in Europe at last. The slightly lighter, less power hungry appliance has been spotted in GAME stores around the UK by a handful of forum posters, suggesting...

  • News Even More PS4, PS3, and Vita Titles Discounted on the EU PlayStation Store

New deals are going to be available today in Europe, and there are a range of PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and Vita titles on offer. This week's biggest sale comes in the...

  • News Sony Steps Up Its Champions League Sponsorship

    They are the champions

    One of the reasons that PlayStation is such a big presence in Europe is because the brand is a major partner of the Champions League, arguably the biggest club football tournament in the world. And it's been announced that Sony Computer Entertainment Europe is extending its partnership with the competition for three...

  • Store Update 21st July 2015 (Europe)

    One last voyage

    There's a spot of animal magic on the European PlayStation Store this week, as Tembo the Badass Elephant and Hatoful Boyfriend await your attention. They'll have to wait, though, as Journey's the highlight this time around. Thatgamecompany's ethereal adventure has taken its sweet time floating onto the PlayStation 4, but is finally...

    One in Vermillion

    Are you ready for Rebel One on your PlayStation 4?

  • Store Update 14th July 2015 (Europe)

    Take your pick

    Oh right, Sony's still doing that weird thing where it posts the European PlayStation Store update on Tuesday, but a ton of the content doesn't actually release until later in the week. We forgot this time SCEE, but we'll be back next week and we'll be on time, so stick that in your pipe and smoke it. PS4 Games: Arcade Archives...

  • Store Update 7th July 2015 (Europe)

    Day early friend

    Well this is all rather new, isn't it? The European PlayStation Store historically doesn't update until Wednesday, but with more and more games dropping on a Tuesday, it seems like Sony's decided to share the lineup for the Old World a little earlier. It's worth noting that not every game is out today, but most are. The question is:...

  • Store Update 1st July 2015 (Europe)

    Ready sweat go

    If you didn't already know, it's been a scorching couple of days for us here in the UK. We've had to deal with melting editors, sticky office chairs, and, of course, combusting consoles. Now we don't know about you, but that usually means it's a good time to close the curtains, slap the air conditioning on, and play some games...

  • News The PS4 Is Absolutely Destroying The Competition in Europe

    Welcome to the Old World

    Sony's always done incredibly well in Europe with its home consoles - that much we know - but we didn't realise just how well its latest system, the PlayStation 4, is doing over here in the Old World. "Well, we have market leadership in every country in Europe, and have very significant market leadership in continental...

    Sorry for the delay

    Oh, right – the European PlayStation Store update. Yeah, embarrassingly we forgot to post this yesterday, but it's been a darn busy week. These kinds of things are better late than never, though, right? Well, that's certainly what we hope. PS4 Games: The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited £54.99/€69.99/AU$99.95 LEGO...

  • News Sony Hasn't Quite Grasped This Flash Sale Thing in Europe

    Bloodborne's price plunges for a few days

    Not only is the weather bad and the fast food worse here in the UK, but we also have to sit and watch idly as our American friends indulge in some outrageous PlayStation Network Flash Sales from time to time. The good news is that SCEE is starting to learn about the benefits of last-minute discounts; the bad...

  • Store Update 3rd June 2015 (Europe)

    Last minute

    E3 hype! E3 hype! E3 hype! So busy has today been that we almost, almost forgot about the European PlayStation Store update.

We'll just get down to business, then: Ultra Street Fighter IV is the biggest new arrival this time, but you may want to think twi

  • News Sony Hypes PS4 as the World's Most Powerful Console in Commercial

    Strong as an ox

    Similarly to yesterday's best games montage, Sony has dropped a new European commercial boasting that the PlayStation 4 is the world's most powerful console. It includes footage of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, Bloodborne, and Batman: Arkham Knight, so it's clearly trying to capitalise on current releases. To be fair, the format does...

  • News Are We About to See More Simultaneous PlayStation Store Launches?

    Wait no more

    We've noticed a change on the PlayStation Store of late. It used to be in the days of yore that games and add-on packs deployed on Tuesday in North America and Wednesday in Europe. Sony set up this schedule eons ago, and it's remained more or less unchanged in the years since. However, we've started to see more and more content launch...

  • Store Update 20th May 2015 (Europe)

    House of (white) Wolves

    This week's European PlayStation Store update certainly isn't the biggest in recent memory, but it's packing some massive releases.

  • News The Order: 1886 Ain't Commanding Antique Prices on the PS4

    Exclusive is Europe's latest Deal of the Week

    Since an early age, this author has found the very idea of 'antiques' baffling. Call us common, but it strikes us that the industry simply peddles old tat under a more appealing name in order to make it seem more valuable; who wants a grotty old table when you can buy a brand new one alongside some...

  • Store Update 13th May 2015 (Europe)

    Tasty stuff

    If you like indie games, you're in luck this week, as there are a lot of them being added as part of the European PlayStation Store update. Nom Nom Galaxy, Lost Orbit, and Toren are perhaps the biggest names in that department – but a quick shout out to Schrodinger's Cat, too. Of

  • News PS4's Crushing the Competition in Germany by Some Margin

    No contest

    We know that competition between the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One is tight in territories such as the UK and the United States – but in Germany, it's practically non-existent. According to a report by BÖRSE ONLINE, the Japanese giant is outselling its rival by a ratio of more than 4:1 – and despite pricing promotions by Microsoft,...

  • News PlayStation Plus Subscribers Suddenly Losing Access to Accounts

    Trouble, trouble, trouble

    Rest assured: if the PlayStation Network's going to break, Sony will make damned sure that it happens on a Bank Holiday weekend. Don't worry, the service is definitely still online – but a not-so insignificant number of European premium members are reporting this weekend that their PlayStation Plus account on the...

  • Store Update 29th April 2015 (Europe)

    Shattered times

    As was the case over the Atlantic, there are a ton of PlayStation 4 titles out to tempt you in this week's European PlayStation Store update. The highlights include Broken Age, Project Root, and Tropico 5 – but honourable mentions must go to late comers Paperbound and Rack N Ruin.

  • News Shovel Knight Ploughs a Path to EU PlayStation Platforms

    Spade in the USA

    It may have only been a day overdue, but let's be honest: Shovel Knight shouldn't have been late in the first place.

  • Store Update 22nd April 2015 (Europe)

    Tonight's the knight

    We're running out of spade-related puns, so let us just say things straight: Shovel Knight is out on the European PlayStation Store this week. There's a fairly healthy roster of software for PlayStation owners to sink their teeth into actually, with LA Cops and Assassin's Creed Chronicles: China also part of the roster. Basement...

  • Store Update 15th April 2015 (Europe)

    Meet your murderer

    Consider this a catch-up edition of the weekly European PlayStation Store update. Yes, the likes of Mortal Kombat X may be headlining, but it's long overdue titles such as Costume Quest 2 and Home that caught our eye. Both of these released in North America many months ago, so it's nice to see SCEE finally back up to date. Now,...

  • News PS4 Releases Reduced in Latest Round of EU Sales

    Cash back

    You like LEGO, right? Of course you do – only Mega Bloks fanboys shun the famous Danish bricks.

That includes LEGO Batman 3: Beyond...

  • News Costume Quest 2 Gets a Timely European Release Date

    A trick and a treat

    After spending, oh, just the eight months in SCEE quality assurance hell, Costume Quest 2 is finally ready for, er, Hallowe'en. The game's already available on the PlayStation 3 in Europe, but missed the Holiday of Horrors by some margin on the PlayStation 4. There's no word as to why the game was delayed – maybe it couldn't...

  • Store Update 8th April 2015 (Europe)

    Calm before the carnage

    Bastion, Stealth Inc 2: A Game of Clones, Tower of Guns – it's raining good indie games. There are no retail releases available as part of this week's European PlayStation Store update – well, unless you ignore the PlayStation 3 version of RIDE – but there's enough good stuff elsewhere to tide you over until Mortal...

  • Store Update 1st April 2015 (Europe)

    If you've already got the Platinum Trophy in Bloodborne like our very own Dan Carter (!!!), then you may be looking for a new challenge.

  • Store Update 31st March 2015 (North America)

    Super mother lode

    Another week, another absolutely enormous North American PlayStation Store update.

    Insert tired baseball pun here

    Do you know what Europeans love just as much as peanut butter and jelly sandwiches? Er, baseball of course.

  • Store Update 25th March 2015 (Europe)

    Take your pick

    We want to draw attention to all of the other good stuff on the PlayStation Store this week, but let's be honest: Bloodborne's the one that's going to be getting the majority of you hot under the collar. That's not to say that there's a shortage of content elsewhere, of course, with new Life Is Strange and Game of Thrones episodes out...
