We’ve been playing GTA V since it was released on the PS3 over 2 years ago. It’s been out on the PS4 now for over a year and the game is better than ever.

LittleBigPlanet 3

Sackboy has brought a bunch of new friends with him for the 3rd LittleBigPlanet outing. It’s been around a while now but this is one of those essential titles that everyone should own. Ideal for creative players and it can also be picked up rather cheaply too.
