Exclusive: How One Developer Turned a PS Vita into a Virtual Reality Headset

How One Developer Turned a PS Vita into a Virtual Reality Headset

Thinking outside of the box

Beatshapers, the indie outfit behind recent PlayStation 4 streaming interaction title #killallzombies, is a PlayStation stalwart at this point. The small Ukrainian company has released 21 titles across various Sony systems to date, and it’s showing no signs of slowing down. We previously revealed the company’s...

What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 50

The weekend before Christmas

Just because it’s almost Christmas, we’re not pulling the plug on WAYP. This is your last vanilla edition, before we run a seasonal special sometime next week. We’re finalising Game of the Year here behind the scenes, so there may not be too much time for actual playing – but hey, if you can’t put your feet up...

Get Festive with the PS4's Best Multiplayer Games This Holiday

Quality time

The holidays are almost here, and for many of you reading this, that means a lot of free time to fill with gaming goodness. Some of us like to snuggle up with an engrossing single player story, a world away from the freezing cold air outside, but we reckon that it's worth considering a more social approach this winter. Indeed, the...

Exclusive: This PS4 Virtual Reality Title Is About a Man and a Giant Robot

This PS4 Virtual Reality Title Is About a Man and a Giant Robot

A boy and his bot

Sony announced Project Morpheus really early so that developers could experiment with it, and that’s exactly what Ukrainian outfit Beatshapers has been up to. In addition to building its very own virtual reality headset out of the PlayStation Vita, the firm has also been busy beavering away on a title for the Japanese giant’s...

10 PlayStation Gifts That Need to Be on Your Christmas List

Stocking fillers

We were going to produce a bog-standard buyer’s guide this Christmas, but we figured that we’d be re-treading old ground. After all, you can peruse what we think is hot on PlayStation courtesy of our nifty games page, and chances are you already have an idea what software you’d like Santa to lug down your chimney anyway...

Push Rewind: PlayStation Plus, Destiny Gripes, and The Crew

PlayStation Plus, Destiny Gripes, and The Crew

Time traveller's strife

While it may seem like things are settling down here at Push Square towers, there’s actually a tidal wave of activity taking place behind the scenes, as we try to cram the Christmas period with as much content as possible ahead of time. There were a few bits and pieces on the homepage worthy of note this week, though, and...

Soapbox: Destiny's Progression System Is Destroying the Game from the Inside

Destiny's Progression System Is Destroying the Game from the Inside

Robert Ramsey can't take the grind any longer

Despite launching only about three months ago, it feels like we've been discussing Destiny for an eternity. Bungie's sci-fi shooter divided opinion from the word go, and, whether it's because of heightened expectations or general trust in a proven developer, we're still ranting and raving about what's...

What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 49

Blank space

Wait a minute: did we miss a week? We can assure you that WAYP’s absence seven days ago was not intentional – this editor just got swept up in the PlayStation Experience madness, and, er, forgot to email the rest of the team. Don’t worry, though, as we’re back with a vengeance today. Sammy Barker, Editor: I have so many review...

Live: Watch the Capcom Cup Finals Livestream Right Here

Watch the Capcom Cup Finals Livestream Right Here

Keep an eye out for Street Fighter V

We probably wouldn’t ordinarily post video from a fighting game tournament, but the Capcom Cup promises to have a little more than virtual fisticuffs this year. The Japanese publisher states that at some point during the broadcast, it will be debuting live footage of PlayStation 4 sequel Street Fighter V, which...

The Ten Best PS4 Trailers at PlayStation Experience

The final countdown

PlayStation Experience is done and dusted, but Sony’s first fan convention was so surprisingly stacked with content that we’re still kind of catching up. Our very own video extraordinaire Ben Potter has been busy uploading a gazillion gigabytes’ worth of trailers onto our YouTube channel this week, so we thought that it...

Interview: Zoink Games on Resurrecting Zombie Vikings on PS4

Zoink Games on Resurrecting Zombie Vikings on PS4

Norse to meet you

There’s only one thing better than zombies: Zombie Vikings. That also happens to be the name of Stick It to the Man! developer Zoink Games’ latest PlayStation 4 project, which is due out next year on Sony’s next-gen machine. A four-player co-op affair with a “dead funny story”, we caught up with Klaus Lyngeled, the...

Preview: Is PS4 Exclusive The Order: 1886 a Revolution or a Relic?

Is PS4 Exclusive The Order: 1886 a Revolution or a Relic?

Lycan it

The Order: 1886 may be set in the late 19th century, but its presentation is anything but ancient. Ready at Dawn’s inaugural home console escapade is not only the best looking game on the PlayStation 4, but we’d argue that it’s some way ahead of the best looking PC titles, too. Granted, it’s not running in 4K resolution, and has...

Round Up: Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris PS4 Reviews Make Amends

Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris PS4 Reviews Make Amends

Tomb raider

Well, this is it: your consolation prize. Rise of the Tomb Raider isn’t coming to the PlayStation 4 anytime soon – though we can be quietly confident that it’ll hit Sony's system after the Xbox One release – so you’re going to have to make do with Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris for the time being. The sequel to Lara...

Watch Day 2's PlayStation Experience Panels Right Here

Better late than never

This editor’s not afraid to admit that he can be a bit dense from time to time. Your humble host has been scratching his head for the past 24 hours, trying to figure out the best way to present all of this weekend’s PlayStation Experience panels. With the show almost over, though, it’s only just occurred to us that we...

Reaction: PlayStation Experience Keynote Closes the Year with Copious Content

PlayStation Experience Keynote Closes the Year with Copious Content

Are you experienced

Sony’s always been a fan of announcing a new title or two in December, but PlayStation Experience appears to have taken this particular penchant to a whole new level. The platform holder initially hinted that its Las Vegas get together would include a few fresh reveals, and we instantly attempted to temper expectations,...

Talking Point: What Did You Think of Sony's PlayStation Experience Keynote?

What Did You Think of Sony's PlayStation Experience Keynote?

The jury's out

It would have probably been unfair to expect a little too much from Sony’s big PlayStation Experience keynote, as it’s very much an extra on the ordinary convention calendar – but the platform holder still served up a selection of pre-Christmas treats in the form of Uncharted 4: A Thief's End, Final Fantasy VII, Yakuza 5, and...

A press conference for the players

Following the Tokyo Game Show earlier in the year, we never imagined that Sony would have another PlayStation press conference lined up for us – but that’s exactly what it’s mustered with its PlayStation Experience keynote. Expect new information on titles like Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, The Order: 1886,...

The Good Intentioned Game Awards Needs a Little Tightening Up

Games rise fine

It’s so easy to be cynical in this industry: one misstep and we pile on a given publisher or platform holder with a perverse form of glee. Geoff Keighley, the Canadian journalist who both bank rolled and organised last night’s The Game Awards, will have already been aware of this going into his big show – after all, the well...

Are you strapped in and ready for a hectic weekend here on Push Square? Things are kicking off tonight with The Game Awards 2014, which is set to get underway from 18:00PM PST (21:00PM EST or 02:00AM GMT). Expect brand new trailers for PS4 exclusives like The Order: 1886, Bloodborne, and No Man’s Sky during the live stream. There...

Game of the Month: November 2014

November 2014

The big one

2014's busiest month has come and gone, leaving us with heated debates over what should win our coveted Game of the Month award. With blockbusters abound and plenty of great games leaving lasting impressions, it was always going to be a tough one, but at the end of the day, only the final staff vote counts. So, which title took the...
