    Stocking fillers

    We were going to produce a bog-standard buyer’s guide this Christmas, but we figured that we’d be re-treading old ground. After all, you can peruse what we think is hot on PlayStation courtesy of our nifty games page, and chances are you already have an idea what software you’d like Santa to lug down your chimney anyway...

  • Feature The Birth of a Legend - 20 Years of PlayStation

    Two decades ago Sony launched the PlayStation in Japan. Here's the story

    Hell hath no fury like a Japanese tech giant scorned – as the saying doesn't go – but when Nintendo left Sony at the altar following a passionate yet brief engagement which almost saw the two joining forces to create an all-in-one SNES CD-ROM system, few would have believed...

  • Feature Cyber Monday 2014 Deals - Every PS4, PS3, and PlayStation Vita Sale

    Last minute lightning discounts

    Cyber Monday is essentially Black Friday’s less exciting other half. The emphasis on online sales means that there are no amazing images of people brawling over cut-price games consoles – and the discounts themselves tend to be less interesting as well. That doesn’t mean that the savings should be ignored...

  • Feature Black Friday 2014 Deals - Every PS4, PS3, and PlayStation Vita Sale

    What are the best doorbusters?

    Much like Christmas, the build-up to Black Friday has been unbearable at times.

Still, if you play your cards right, there are bargains to be found – and we've...

  • News PlayStation Boss Gets Punished for All of E3's Boring Bits This Year

    This is for Powers

    Regardless of whether or not you liked the content, Sony’s big Gamescom 2014 press conference was much better paced than its E3 2014 one. The folks at SCEE cut out all of the fat, and peppered the organisation’s media briefing in Cologne with trailers, announcements, and very little corporate gobbledygook. SCEA boss Shawn...

  • News MLB 12 The Show Video Takes a Swing

    It's out of here!

    Sony promises far more robust Move features for MLB 12 The Show, and now it's released fresh video footage showing a tiny bit of what to expect. The game is certainly looking better than ever, with enhanced physics, animation and presentation bringing it up a notch on last year's already excellent MLB 11 The Show. Can it improve on...

  • Review PlayStation Vita Hardware

    The good, the bad and the proprietary

    When Sony's PSP successor was announced last year, it was met with a lot of excitement and anticipation. This fervour was readily apparent at last year's E3 trade show in Los Angeles with extremely lengthy lines to play the system at Sony's booth.

And while I had a wealth of questions about how the unit would feel and...

  • News Check Out Move Games on the Go with Official PlayStation App

    On iOS or Android

    We've all been there: you're in a shop and you need the latest information about the games in front of you.

  • News Take a Behind the Scenes Look at TV Superstars

    Spare yourself the pain of playing it

    TV Superstars may not be the greatest party game on the PS3, but it's still interesting to hear Cambridge Studio discuss how the title came into being, what made the cut and what didn't.

  • News Happy 15th Birthday in Europe, PlayStation

    Brand hits the moderately-sized 1-5

    Well, it's a belated birthday: the first ever PlayStation was launched in Europe on September 29th, 1995. In the days before motion control, even before full analogue control, the PSX was still one of the most exciting console launches in history. Crushing Sega's Saturn console – though that's a story for...
