The tale of No Mans Sky and how it became one of the biggest cluster-messes in recent gaming history is a long and winding one. One that was alluded to in my previous article on the hacking of Hello Games email accounts.

Keep your eyes on the PlayStation Store’s offerings next Tuesday, since they’ll most probably turn out quite different from this week’s offerings! Along with the usual suspects like The Walking Dead, Resident Evil and Castlevania, maybe you’ll find a few other unexpected surprises.
