The Playstation Portable is still a thing you know! If you have one hidden in the back of a drawer or somewhere else it really shouldn't be then I expect you to get it out, dust it off and inject some life into it for only £1 delivered.
I've made my point quite clear. It's LittleBigPlanet, it's a quid and it's delivered to your front door. You can't really ask for more than that.
Starting today you can make some pretty good savings on Star Wars games on your PlayStation consoles. The majority of discounts are on the PS3,PSP & Playstation Vita but there are some savings for PS4 owners on the Star Wars pinball tables.
Sony have revealed their latest PSN deals of the week for PS4, PS3 and PS Vita. Rockstar fans are in for a treat, since most of their entire legacy of games have been slashed down to size.
For example, all of the PS3 Grand Theft Auto games are between 65-80% off, including GTA V, GTA IV and all the DLC, while Red Dead Redemption and L.A. Noire are both a fiver apiece. Meanwhile the superb PSP games are also ridiculously cheap, such as Vice City Stories and The Warriors.
PS4 owners also shouldn't miss Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition for only £9.49! Get all the deals and links below, and a tip of the cap to jaystan for beating me to it on HUKD.Click here to read more...
In addition to the sweet Final Fantasy deals we posted earlier, you can also pick up another pair of RPG classics for just £3.59 each on PSN. Suikoden and Suikoden 2 are only £3.99 each, but using today's discount code you can chip them down to £3.59. Note: the code will only work once, so make sure you're happy with your basket's contents before applying it.
Fancy playing the very first Final Fantasy title? Well, now's your chance as the latest PSN sale combined with today's discount code sees many of the originals going for just £3.60 for a download to your Vita or PSP. Note: the code will only work once, so make sure you're happy with your basket's contents before applying it.
The games may have aged a little harshly over the years, but for £3.60 we think Final Fantasy fans will get a kick out of seeing where it all began. The game was originally called Final Fantasy as it was set to be the company's final game before they went of business. However, it sold exceptionally well and the rest is history as they say.
Thanks to FantasyDeals.
Happy 20th Birthday, PlayStation. We figured that we'd take a trip down memory lane, reminisce about some of our favourite PlayStation memories, and ask our readers to do the same.
When it comes to standout memories of the Playstation brand, there are two that come to mind. The first was when I was 14 and still primarily a PC gamer. The last console I had bought was a Sega Mega Drive, so I had yet to dive into the new-fangled craze that was Playstation, but all that was to change just a week before Christmas. You see, I had just bought Men In Black: The Video Game on PC, but my machine wasn’t having any joy running it well enough to play. My best friend Paul had come round to see if we could fix it, but neither of us were as clued up on troubleshooting PCs as we are now. As such, and I couldn’t tell you what he did, Paul tinkered with something that bricked the computer. I was distraught – not being able to play my new MiB game was bad enough, but now I couldn’t play even play Civilization II. Then, in a sign of true friendship (or more likely though a horrific feeling of guilt), Paul loaned me his PSone and his copy of Metal Gear Solid over Christmas.
There was a catch, though – he forgot to give me a memory card.
So there I was experiencing a game like none I had played before, and I had to do it in one extended session. If anything, the lack of save game facility heightened the tension despite the fact you could press continue upon dying. It meant that every action I made couldn’t be undone. It was glorious and terrifying in equal measure (especially the Psycho Mantis bit) but ultimately it showed me that home consoles were capable of delivering gaming experiences that could match or even supersede those found on PC. While I didn’t purchase another console until the PS2, that Christmas with the PSone changed everything for me as a gamer, and it was all thanks to Metal Gear Solid.Click here to read more...
Hold onto your hats, retronauts, because this week's PSN sale is all about catching up with the classics. From new takes on legendary games like Okami HD, Superfrog HD and Metal Gear Solid 2 HD to genuine golden oldies like G-Police and Bishi Bashi Special, there's a whole host of discounted nostalgia on sale. Remember that the PS1 games will be compatible with PS3 or Vita.

Rising Star Games turn ten this year, marking a decade of bringing niche Japanese games to the US and Europe. So what better way to celebrate than a whole host of sales on multiple platforms? A number of 3DS titles will be discounted next week -- I've already scheduled the post (details on HUKD) -- but today PS3 and PS Vita owners can reap the benefits on a number of cult classics.
Speaking of cult classics, Deadly Premonition is probably the cream of the crop at £8.99. Love it or hate it, this mechanically flawed gem still delivers one of the best storylines to ever grace a videogame. So says Mr Lester. Other highlights include Sorcery Saga: Curse Of The Great Curry God for £8.99 on Vita and Half-Minute Hero at £2.99 on PSP (Vita compatible). I've linked to our reviews, so do check them out if you want to know more.

The third tutorial infomercial for PES 2014 details how players have faith of the heart, and go where their hearts will take them. They've got faith to believe; they can do anything. Before I start spouting more Rod Stewart lyrics, let's get this train back on track by explaining that this year's PES offering will feature the new 'Heart' system, which makes player motivation and personality a key part of the game.Click here to read more...
Sony has discounted several PSP (and hence Vita-compatible) games on the PlayStation Network. Look closely and you'll find some killer deals here, such as £3.99 for the sensationally-rebuilt Final Fantasy Tactics: War Of Lions. In fact, SRPG fans should get on that right now. It's brilliant.
We've got the rest of the sale after the break, which you can purchase directly from the SEN website. What're you buyin', stranger?Click here to read more...

One for the import fans: NIS America will release stylish PSN SHMUP Black Rock Shooter on April 26th. Based on a single character design by renowned artist Huke, and voiced by the synthetic diva Hatsune Miku, this PSP title certainly looks like a bit of a beast from the East. Though our robotic protagonist does look a bit chilly. Trailer and details after the break.Click here to read more...

Platform: PSP | PS Vita [PSN, £11.99]
Publisher: XSEED Games
The original Corpse Party is an odd little proposition. Halfway between adventure game, visual novel, psychological horror experience and exploitative murder pornography, this bizarre PSP download managed to grimly captivate its players with deep inter-character relationships and shocking acts of violence visited upon helpless minors. Many of us soldiered through it, braving several frustrating gameplay sections and a constantly-building feeling of disgust, out of a desperate need to save the cast of terrified students trapped in a nightmare world... or occasionally out of perverse curiosity. Finding all of the horrific multiple 'wrong endings' became a sadistic addiction in and of itself, as was exploring the secret behind the cursed, hellish Heavenly Host high school.
So let me ask you a question. Are you a fan of Corpse Party? Did you emotionally connect with the characters, from the tragic relationship between Naomi and Seiko to the deliciously disturbed Morishige? Would you like to spend more time with them?
If you answered 'yes' to all of the above, you'll probably get a massive kick out of Book Of Shadows. Otherwise there's nothing for you here.

Why throw one sale when you can throw two? Rather than stopping with racing-related deals, Sony has also kicked off an extra promotion to celebrate the colourful roster of PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale.
The Jak and Daxter Trilogy edition appears to be £10.99, which seems incredibly cheap to us. £6.49 for Uncharted and inFamous isn't too bad either, while a host of Fat Princess deals will give you unfettered and inexpensive access to the portly royal.
Here we go again: deets and prices after the break or on the EU PlayStation Blog. Let us know if there are any more smart bargains we should be shouting about from the virtual rooftops!Click here to read more...
One of the highlights of being one of the few people still to own a PSP is that games for it are dirt cheap. Dissidia: Final Fantasy is a cracking little title that delivers some sublime fan-service, and it's in stock at GAME and available for under a fiver, saving you a couple of quid on the nearest competition.

I built a Sausagemobile.
It's a work in progress. As you can see by the screenshot, the tracking is a little off. Aesthetically speaking, Sausagemobile v.0.5 isn't exactly a Pagani Zonda. But halfway through LittleBigPlanet Vita's campaign, I was gripped by the desire to create my own vehicle... so with a little ingenuity, a three way switch, a motorised bolt, some salami and a few basic tutorials, I was able to design a tastier way to travel. Having almost no experience in the editing side of the original LittleBigPlanet or its sequel, I'm actually rather chuffed.
Which is the point, really, and just the tip of the iceberg. LittleBigPlanet's Vita offering provides the same addictive Playing, Creating and Sharing aspects of its predecessors, yet somehow manages to pack even more content onto a handheld platform thanks to the most advanced editing tools in franchise history.Click here to read more...
The PlayStation Store Summer Sale has reached its final week, folks, meaning that we've got one last content update for you.

As always, hit the jump or browse through to the EU PlayStation Blog for more details - and let us know what you bought!
Note that several of last week's deals expire tomorrow, so don't miss out. We've included them below.Click here to read more...
