While you could spend all those pennies you've saved on buying more chocolate (and I wouldn't blame you, really) Sony have decided to give Playstation 3 and Vita owners a chance to bag a saving or two during the Easter holiday. As always, PS+ subscribers get a little chopped off the top for an extra saving. Notable offers include those for Battlefield 4, the Mass Effect trilogy, Hotline Miami (a cross-buy purchase, which is nice), and the first season of The Walking Dead. Take a gander at the entire list of offers by hitting the jump.
The PSN Summer Festival Sale is heating up thanks to a truly whopping new update, as listed on the EU PlayStation Blog. It is utterly, stonkingly huge.
As with most PSN promotions, though, it's a very mixed bag in terms of actual savings - you'll want to review games on a case by case basis. The trial & unlock games are probably your best bet, with the likes of Joe Danger 2, All Zombies Must Die, Burn Zombie Burn and the brilliant Dogfight 1942 bundle available for chump change.
We've got the whole shebang after the break - and I've picked out the prices for you because I'm nice like that.Click here to read more...
The PlayStation Store is currently playing host to PS2 and Naughty Dog promotions, but Sony has announced that their Summer Festival Sale kicks off today. Quentin Tarantino's Django Unchained is now available to rent for £0.99, while an annual Music Unlimited pass will set you back a (questionable) £59.99 or £49.99 for PS Plus subscribers. It's cheaper than Spotify Premium, I suppose.
In terms of games, however, the first deal will go live on Friday, seeing Tomb Raider reduced to £16.99. Other deals will break cover over the coming weeks, so we'll keep an eye out.
Sony have kicked off their PSOne sale over on the Playstation Store. Available from now until July 10th, there'll be slashed prices for the likes of Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, Metal Gear Solid, Tomb Raider, Silent Hill, and Resident Evil 1, 2, and 3.
Remember, Playstation Plus subscribers will get an extra 10% off.Click here to read more...
I love Playstation Plus. It floats my boat by offering up a monthly carousel of exceptional games all for the price of £35 a year. Seriously, if you have a Playstation device and you don't have PS Plus rectify this folly immediately.
Anyway, come June three more games will swap in to be downloaded for nothing, and those three games happen to be some of the best around: ICO HD, Shadow of the Colossus HD, and Demon's Souls. If you just want to buy them outright, though, they're discounted from today in the Knights and Witches sale.Click here to check out the full sale listings >>
The Playstation Store is getting some sweet GTA-related discounts this week that include all of the games from GTA 3 onwards, not mention the Episodes for GTA IV, and even some price slashing for the fantastic PSP titles.
Hit the jump for the full list of discounts, and remember PS Plus subscribers get a further 10% off of everything.Click here to read more...
Sony have announced plans for some hefty PSN maintenance on Monday 15th April, with separate times depending on where you're basedClick here to read more...
Sony have revised their maintenance plans for today. The PSN will now be down for longer, from earlier in the day. Yay.Click here to read more...
Sony has announced the return of their "12 Deals Of Christmas" promotion, which will deliver twelve 48 hour-long promotions from December 1st.
You now know as much as we do. Keep your eyes fixed on the PlayStation Blog post for daily updates from Saturday, or trust us to do it for you.
The official Playstation Blog has announced that when the Playstation Store updates in a short while, PS3 users will be able to make some mighty fine savings on all things related to Grand Theft Auto IV. The biggest saving obviously comes in the form of the Complete Edition, but if you already own the base game you can still save a fair enough getting the more enjoyable Episodes. As usual, PS Plus subscribers get their 10% off the listed sale price. We’ve got the full list after the jump.Click here to read more...
This week's PlayStation Store update finally brings us Counter-Strike: GO.
Instead, we have the new expansion for Portal 2, In Motion, that features a motion-controlled campaign compatible with the PlayStation Move. PS Plus members can get a 30% discount. New games include Of Orcs And Men and a complete Saints Row package, alongside Black Ops: Declassified for the PS Vita. Early reports suggest that you should avoid Nihilistic's portable Call Of Duty title like the plague, and for the sake of full disclosure, review code hasn't been made available to us (danger!).
Either way, as always, we have the lean update and prices after the break - thanks to the latest post on the PlayStation Blog.Click here to read more...
PSN is holding a spooktacular Halloween sale, which starts tomorrow in Europe as part of the weekly PlayStation Store update.
We've rounded up the entire list of promotions below, but we reckon that the smartest bargains are the Dead Island GOTY Edition for £11.99 (with a 10% Plus discount), I Am Alive for £7.99 (again, less for Plus subscribers) and BG&E HD for £4.25. House Of The Dead 3 and 4 will also be reduced to silly prices.
As mentioned, the promotion kicks off tomorrow and will end on November 7th. Let us know what you buy!Click here to read more...
After an embarrassing setback, Sony has announced that the newly-redesigned PLayStation Store interface is "now live in all EU territories" The new front end promised easier searching, intuitive browsing and larger icons, but met with a number of crippling issues including an inability to distinguish between regular members and Plus subscribers.
Hopefully all of the creases have now been ironed out.
This week's PlayStation Store update brings good news all round. The Walking Dead: Episode 4 - Around Every Corner is now available to download, so if you've been following the series, Matt's 8/10 review explains why you probably should.
The PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale public beta kicks off today for PS Plus members, while Vita owners can get involved at leisure. Plus subscribers can also get their hands on The Unfinished Swan and, if you're a fan of flight sims, a bundle pack of Dogfight 1942 and its two expansions for £7.99 provides a great value proposition. [thanks for the tip, ODB]
I'd also like to point out that you can download a PSP bundle pack of Half Minute Hero and Blazing Souls Accelate to your Vita for £10.99, which is much better value than netting them separately. Note that Accelate is a bit of a mixed bag, though. As always, the full update is available on the EU PlayStation Blog or condensed after the break.Click here to read more...
Sony are deploying an all-new PlayStation Store user interface as part of today's update, which should make the marketplace much more intuitive to navigate.
UPDATE: Sony have temporarily reverted back to the old design to address some major launch day issues, such as slow browsing speeds, wallet problems and an inability to distinguish between regular and PlayStation Plus members. "We look forward to introducing the new look store to the UK market shortly," said the company in a short statement.Click here to read more...
It's that time again, folks! The PlayStation Network will be offline for scheduled maintenance this coming Monday.
Expect services to be down from 13:00 BST on October 15th through until 02:00 BST on Tuesday morning. As per usual, users will be unable to access the PlayStation Store, Account Management, Account Registration, or play online. Trophies will still be operational, however, and will update on users' profiles once the PSN is operational again.
Starting today, Sony will release monthly best-selling charts for the PlayStation Store: both for PSN trial & unlock titles, full PS3 games, PS Vita downloads and PSOne classics. We've often wondered how well download titles fare on Sony's online marketplace, and this should give us a fascinating (or interminably dull) insight into the inner workings of Sony's marketplace.
We'll naturally link to our reviews when appropriate, and call out anything we find interesting, pleasing or bizarre.Click here to read more...
Sony's PS3 Essentials line, which sees a whole bunch of classic PS3 games hit the PSN Store at a discounted rate, arrive today. There are a bunch of newer titles such as Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood priced at £15.99, with some older games like LBP and the original Uncharted comingg it at £9.99.
Frankly, we rather think it's a little underwhelming, with the complete lack of retail outlay not reflected in pricing for games that have gone considerably lower than this before.Check out the full list after the jump >>>
Counter-Strike: Global Offensive has failed to materialise on the European PlayStation Network for a third week running, with the latest episode of Telltale's Walking Dead series also notably absent despite a US release. Sony still offers no reason for the delay, which has increasingly attracted some angry backlash from PS3 owners. Several US titles are currently outstanding for Europe, including Dyad and Closure, while Trine 2 took several months to clear certification. Please can we spend our money on some nice things, Sony?
Actually, yes. Despite its glaring omissions, this week's PlayStation Store Update does provide a fantastic value PS Minis bundle from Beatshapers (which includes the brilliant Canabalt, Wizorb and others for £4.99), Zen Pinball 2, standalone HD versions of Metal Gear Solid 2 and Snake Eater alongside an extensive retro sale. More details on the EU PlayStation Blog.
