Future plc wins pitch for the Official PlayStation Magazine UK

International special-interest media group, Future plc, has announced today that it has won the pitch to publish the Official PlayStation Magazine for the UK license. Having worked with Sony Computer Entertainment Europe for over a decade (since 1995), Future is delighted to be continuing their relationship and fortifying the Official PlayStation portfolio in preparation of the PS3's launch.

By next month, the Official PlayStation Magazine will launch with a special PS3 preview issue. But of course, while the focus would be on the next-gen console, the PSP and PS2 markets remain to be well-covered to cater to its markets. For the first issue of the magazine, you will be given the ultimate and exclusive guide to the PS3, thanks to the team's unparalleled access to it and its launch games.

Abby deserves to be number 1.

He was created to appease the poison colored haired employees at Naughty Dog and their fantasy of hating all of their fathers for lack thereof. This was the worst case of a company that was in charge of a media hating their own fans.

Streamers would straight up be reported or even banned for letting Abby die in the boss fight while playing as a fake female that has a man's motion capture.

Abby as a human wouldn't exist in a ruined world with that musculature because there wouldn't be enough available protein in the world to maintain all that manly muscle mass unless cannibalism was Introduced.

Abby wasn't just terrible for the games narrative but in totality with the media reputation included. If that wasn't so tarnished the fans would have already gotten a 3rd game in the once loved series.

And with that flat chest having Abby as the main character would title the Game The Last of Us Tranz 3 Parts removed

Would love PlayStation Home 2 on PS5 with seamless transitions between different areas.

-Foxtrot1d 11h ago

Yeah, although I’m worried if it does come back idiots will say it’s jumping on the metaverae trend not realising it did this years ago

zeuanimals1d 1h ago

They'd have a hard time doing that if it's called Playstation Home 2. That raises the question of what the first one was.

You’ll enjoy life much more if you stop worrying about what other people think :)

...in VR2 would be awesome as well.

Godmars2901d 2h ago

Given you're talking about online speeds and connectivity, not the PS5 itself, you're not escaping loading screens.

Tacoboto1d 1h ago

SSD speeds so quick you could open a door in PS Home to walk your Avatar through a portal to launch a game.

They could do something like Peach's Castle in Mario 64 and your library of titles are the portraits

ChiefofLoliPolice1d ago

Agreed wholeheartedly. Playstation Home was amazing!

ThEusAisPoisonous21h ago

You’re being silly. It was stupid as shit.

Second Life did that before everyone.

it really was.

miss it.
it had alot of potential.

Inverno1d 2h ago

There's still IMVU and Second Life but they're not quite like PS Home. Btw folks the Home restoration project is still going and they have brought Home back online through the PS3 emulator. So if y'all interested in goin back HOME there's that.

Yui_Suzumiya16h ago

I'm interested! I was wondering if that project was still live or not.

Elda1d 2h ago

If he praises it why did Sony shut the app down.

Jin_Sakai1d 1h ago

He just said it was ahead of its time. Super slow HDD made it awful when traversing areas.

OptimusDK17h ago

It was trash 🗑️ and it still is. Walking around to go into stores etc is cringe and makes no sense at all. The hype around metaverse is totally overblown

Jin_Sakai16h ago(Edited 16h ago)


You don’t speak for everyone. Many people enjoyed it. But I do agree with the Metaverse being overblown.

__SteakDeck__12h ago

@OptimusDK You don’t know what you’re talking about. This was a good place to meet people.

As good as it was It missed the opportunity of becoming huge... Imagine if just eat or similar and you could order food from within checking out menus of local restaurants, Or items direct from Amazon etc whilst in shop in game checking out the items in real time, or even clothes from your favourite shops. The thing could have been Enormous ! I realise it could be dangerous in over spending but hell kids max out parents cards on fortnite, just need to keep control of them.
