Consider Mortal Kombat X your first essential fighting game of the new generation of consoles. It's best enjoyed with local friends thanks to the easily memorised combos and buckets of gory X-Ray moves and finishers. The story and lengthy Tower options will pad out the single-player experience, but the online match ups are reserved for the more hardcore player.
PSN will be down briefly next week on August 18th for some planned maintenance. This is a regular thing for Sony, but a necessary nuisance we feel in order to avoid larger outages, oddly slow downloads or security breaches that have become an all too familiar conversation while discussing Sony's network.Click here to read more...
We're getting multiple reports that PSN is down again and gamers who are online are reporting downloads taking much longer than usual.
The main issues seem to be affecting Europe, although that could be because other areas of the world like the West coast of the USA are still in bed. Take a look at this map to see the most recent spread of outages.Click here to read more...

[Update] It seems we got the wrong end of the stick regarding Playstation's Tweet yesterday that stated 'Snooker expansion comes to Hustle Kings this week, and it's free to play', the Snooker Exhibition Pack is £3.99 to purchase.

Some nice people at Sheffield's Hallam University have put their heads together to bring us a nice puzzle game for just 99p on the PS4. Resembling Tetris, you will need to put back together the islands of PieceFall to restore the monuments. As always I think we should always support developers and especially ones that are so close to us so for 99p this game is a no brainer for me.
The US Playstation store has just started a flash sale which includes some great prices. Borderlands: The Handsome Collection on PS4 can be yours for just £19.23 and the Mass Effect Trilogy games starting from just £2.88 for PS3. Full prices are listed below.

You can get Terraria for as little as £4.20 on Vita and £5.80 on PS4, while the likes of Life Is Strange, Aeternoblade, Final Horizon and the legendary Frozen Synapse Prime are all on offer.

[UPDATE] 22:00: PSN is now showing as 'All Services are up and running'
It seems to be a growing trend does this situation, whenever there is a public holiday in the US we can always expect the Playstation Network to also take one. Unfortunately the Playstation Network is currently down with all services apart from 'PlayStation®Vue' showing a red light status.
Sony have responded to the issue with a Tweet letting us all know that they are aware of the situation and are investigating it.
We're aware that PSN is experiencing connectivity issues. Thank you for your patience as we investigate. http://t.co/0H0knwwmPY

As it's Friday night and the PSN is down you may as well take to Twitter with the rest of the angry mob and share your own personal feelings, or you could tell us below in a more calmer fashion. Your choice.
Starting today we’ll have four weeks of rotating discounts on great digital games, across PS4, PS3 and PS Vita. This week kicks off with remastered cult classic Grim Fandango, and Ubisoft’s artful RPG, Child of Light along others. I should also add that everything has a PS Plus discount attached, stretching your coin even further.
You’ll only have one week to grab these discounts before we swap in a fresh load, so delaying is not in your best interest.

Have you noticed that PSN downloads are taking longer than usual? We certainly have -- what with DriveClub's PS+ Edition and the monstrous Elder Scrolls Online patch taking an age -- and we're not alone.
It turns out that many European PS4 owners have reported slow download speeds and Sony are actively investigating the issue.Click here to read more...
Remember the classic 2002 Japanese RPG title Suikoden III? It's heading to the Playstation Store tomorrow for its first ever UK release. Great news.

Three Batman games for only £10.79 seems like a bit of a no brainer to us. The Batman Arkham Collection consists of:
If you're really good you have about four days to get these all played and completed before the Arkham Knight next Tuesday. I must point out that £10.79 is purely on the assumption you hold an active PS+ subscription, otherwise it is £11.99.
The date has now been set. Atoi and Iota are coming to the Playstation 4 platform on 11th of September in the UK (9th for the rest of Europe).
"We are very excited to announce that Tearaway Unfolded will be launching across Europe on 9th September (and 11th September in the UK). Hooray!"
Whats more, if you decide to pre order Tearaway Unfolded now (and possibly for some time in the future) you will be entitled to two additional DLC packs!Click here to read more...
We all like getting something for nothing and you'll soon have another chance to do so. PayPal are about to bring back their amazing PSN promotion, which lets you make £50 worth of PSN purchases for £40. Effectively giving you a free tenner to spend on games, DLC and entertainment in the process!
How does it work? Just click this link and follow the instructions, starting June 16th. Basically, so long as you spend £50 on PSN in a single transaction, you'll get a tenner knocked off if you activate the coupon on your PayPal account, then check out with PayPal.
As far as I know the £10 saving can be applied to PSN wallet top-ups, PlayStation Plus subscriptions, games and downloadable content. Thanks to anlygi for the tip!

The latest PSN sale offers some seriously high percentage discounts, but seeing as many prices start off absurdly high, they're often not particularly great deals. That said, there are a few that we feel are worth highlighting, as they're cheaper than their physical counterparts.
You'll need a PS Plus subscription to get these hot discounts, but if your subscription lapses in the future, you'll still get to keep these games.Click here to read more...
