PS4 Report Card - How Has Sony's Format Fared in 2015?

Constructive criticism

It's the end of term, and that means that its report card time. It's been two years since the PlayStation 4 launched, and the heady days of Jack Tretton's big E3 2013 beatdown are now a distant memory. But while Sony can attribute a chunk of its new-gen system's success to those pre-release pounces, has the manufacturer kept...

What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 97

Deck the fools

Apparently it's already 12th December, which means that many of you are probably just realising that you have Christmas gifts to buy and decorations to assemble. Gulp. There's still time to get all of that sorted, though, so we recommend shirking your responsibilities and sitting pretty with your PlayStation platform of choice...

High five

Well would you look at that, it's already time for another issue of Push Share. We've once again cobbled together some of our staff to find out what they've been playing, subsequently pestering them for their favourite PlayStation 4 screenshots.

Why the PS4's Share Button Is the Greatest Innovation of This Generation

Antisocial editor Sammy Barker gets social

I've returned to the familiar hearth of the PlayStation 3 to review Yakuza 5 which released this week. Reacquainting myself with the last-gen format always proves a wake-up call each and every time that I go back to it: the Trophy syncing system, the patching process, the slow downloads – I'm not sure...

We Launch Our Limit Breaks on Episodic Final Fantasy VII Remake Reports

Squaaaaaaaare!

So, Final Fantasy VII Remake isn't going to be one game. The news rocked the very foundation of the Push Square office earlier today, but even though we're still reeling from the shock, we've managed to get editors Sammy Barker and Robert Ramsey together to have a good old rant about the whole thing. You can read their bewildered,...

Your Ultimate PlayStation Experience 2015 Recap

And the rest of the week that was

Well, that was a pretty intensive week. Not only did we stay up late for The Game Awards 2015, but this weekend also brought PlayStation Experience 2015 – and about a trillion PlayStation 4 and Vita announcements with it. Because it's been such an action packed week we've decided to do Push Rewind a little...

PSX 2015's Presser Brings the PS4 Goods Despite Poor Pacing and Pants Finale

Did the Japanese giant deliver?

Sony's only just getting started with its PlayStation Experience event, but the keynote is the clear highlight for those not in attendance at the show. This year's presser brought with it a solid two hours of trailers, announcements, and executives in branded t-shirts. But did it deliver? We asked editors Sammy...

Did PlayStation Experience 2015 Meet Your Expectations?

Fan fest

While PlayStation Experience 2015 is only just getting started for attendees, the keynote is now over. Sony used its last big show of the year to show some more Final Fantasy VII Remake, announce Ni no Kuni 2, and reveal that a lot of games are out today. It's also worth remembering that the first batch of PlayStation 2 titles will be...

Press conference appetisers

What Time Is Sony's PlayStation Experience 2015 Press Conference?

Set your alarms

The last big press conference of the year is prompting mild jubilation here at Push Square Towers, as it means that we can finally get a bit of rest before things start all over again with CES 2016 in January. Groan. Anyway, PlayStation Experience is cool because it's way more casual than other events – SCEA boss Shawn Layden...

Taking Cover in Uncharted 4's Multiplayer Beta on PS4

Irresistible relic?

Few things in life derive more pleasure than the following: sex, chocolate, matching with other players in the Uncharted 4: A Thief's End multiplayer beta on the PlayStation 4. Despite being a rather cynical promotional ploy, Naughty Dog's server stress test is living up to its namesake, as you'll spend more time staring at...

Can you beat the PlayStation Experience?

Heck yes, it's that time again.

What Was Announced at The Game Awards 2015?

Show stoppers

As was the case last year, The Game Awards 2015 proved a well-intentioned event, with a handful of decent reveals and some pleasant little featurettes. Credit must go to Geoff Keighley, who's managed to transform this show from a cringe-fest on Spike TV into something that gamers can generally be relatively satisfied with. Of course,...

An experience to remember

PlayStation Experience returns this weekend, and Sony's lined up one final keynote to celebrate.
