Game of the Year: Best PS3 Games of 2014

Best PS3 Games of 2014

Antiques roadshow

It's been a funny year for the PlayStation 3. While the system has received plenty of support in 2014, it feels like the attention of the industry has moved on. Cross-generation titles like Destiny and Far Cry 4 have all been advertised with the PlayStation 4 in mind, and sales have taken a tumble as a consequence. Despite what...

Which PS4 Games Are You Most Looking Forward to in 2015?

Thinking ahead

We love navel gazing as much as the next person here at Push Square Towers, which is why we've compiled seven features on our favourite 2014 PlayStation forays. However, in an industry that's constantly moving forwards, it's hard not to look ahead as well. That's why we've pulled our team together one last time to discuss our most...

Handheld highfliers

Hello everyone – we trust you all had a very Merry Thursday. As you may have noticed elsewhere on the site, we'll be filling the next week's news void with oodles of articles on the Best PlayStation Games of 2014 – and this Video Editor has been busy preparing some videos for those of you that don't like to read. Watch on for...

Best PS Vita Games of 2014

The whole world in your hands

For a format that's struggled in an age of smartphones and tablet games, the PlayStation Vita has carved out a committed niche of core gamers who love the handheld to death. We get a lot of requests here at Push Square, but number one with a bullet is more coverage for the Japanese giant's miniscule machine – and...

Post Pictures of Your PlayStation Pressies

"OMG! It's a PlayStation 4"

Christmas is a time of sharing, seasonal goodwill, and – let's be honest – plenty of presents. As you read this, we're guessing that there's a carpet of discarded wrapping paper beneath your feet, and an infectious grin plastered upon your face. The question is: which gift prompted your Nintendo 64 moment this year,...

Play another day

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas – which is handy, because when you read this, the big day will have arrived. Before you get back to peeling potatoes and opening presents, though, we just wanted to take advantage of the season to leave you a message thanking you for all of your support in 2014. Push Square...

Boxing Day 2014 Deals - Every PS4, PS3, and PlayStation Vita Sale

Lightning discounts for the freshly flush

If the chaos on Black Friday wasn't enough to put you off discount days for life, then you may be pondering what promotions await this Boxing Day. Typically reserved for retailers in the UK and Canada, this holiday has lessened in importance in recent years, with more people preferring to watch sport on...

PlayStation Gifts, Tidbits, and Destiny DLC

Seasonal cheer

And so the sun has set on the last week before Christmas. To say that it’s been a quiet seven days on Push Square would be a lie, as it’s been uncharacteristically busy for mid-December. That said, while we’ve been huffing and puffing at the number of press releases assaulting our inbox, there aren’t many major highlights...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...
