The Witness leads the games coming to the PlayStation Store on 26th January 2016.
No releases for the PlayStation 3 or PlayStation Vita this week, but the quality of the PlayStation 4 line-up looks more than enough to compensate.
The big release of the week is seven years in the making. The Witness comes from acclaimed game designer Jonathan Blow and has some work to do if it’s to best his earlier masterpiece, Braid.
The Internet has been moaning about the price of the game over the past few days but early impressions have been overwhelmingly positive and with 40+ hours of gameplay on offer, let’s hope such grumbles are misguided.
