What Time Does Sony's TGS 2016 Press Conference Start?

We go again

You may have only just recovered from last week's PlayStation Meeting 2016 press conference, but it's time to do it all over again ahead of the Tokyo Game Show this week. Sony's annual Japanese press conference is always aimed directly at the domestic market in Asia, but fans will want to tune in regardless, as it's sure to hold value...

Five Reveals You Should Anticipate at Sony's TGS 2016 Presser

Predictions for Sony's next big briefing

With last week's PlayStation Meeting being in such close proximity, Sony's annual Tokyo Game Show press conference has been given short shrift. Despite being aimed at the Japanese market, however, these media briefings are usually decent, spotlighting titles a little different to what we've come to expect...

Chapter 4 - Financial Times

Money, it's a gas

I'd been searching for copper among the asteroids hovering in the nothingness for at least an hour. The hyperdrive upgrade I managed to find in the last system required hundreds of the stuff, and I was accumulating it at a snail's pace. After visiting a handful of yellow star systems and knowing full well that the other colours...

Wow, 134 issues of What Are You Playing and this is maybe... The third or fourth time that Overlord Barker hasn't put it together? That's some dedication right there, but enough waffling - it's time to find out what we're going to be playing on this rather grey but warm UK weekend. Robert Ramsey, Associate Editor: It's taken me...

Will You Be Buying a PS4 Pro?

You knew this was coming

Aaaaand here we are. It's been roughly two days since the PlayStation 4 Pro was announced at Sony's PlayStation Meeting, and it's reasonably safe to say that opinions are divided. For some, the Pro is exactly what they expected, while others are a little disappointed that it isn't something more. Naturally, this means that...

Everything You Need to Know About PS4 Pro

All of your questions answered

Sony was always going to have difficulty explaining what the PlayStation 4 Pro is – and, perhaps more importantly, who it's for – during its PlayStation Meeting press conference this week. The console, which represents a kind of half-step for the existing PS4 model, is not intended to blur generations or begin...

It's been an extraordinary long time since the PlayStation 4K – or Neo as its better known – leaked at the Game Developers Conference all the way back in March, but PlayStation Meeting 2016 will finally see Sony reveal the console.

Take a hike

The Laptop system was, on first impressions, a bit of a letdown. One planet with two moons? Is that all you've got for me, Laptop? Pfff. It wasn't all bad, though. I hadn't really seen many moons at that stage, so I was intrigued to see if there were any differences. Perhaps they'd be rockier and less rich in resources. Whatever the...

It's the calm before the storm – and not just because we've had a couple of days of hot weather here in the UK. No, we're referring to the fact that the next time we write a WAYP, we'll all know what the PS4K – or Neo – actually is. Exciting stuff, eh?

We've been lucky enough to play PlayStation VR on several occasions now, and the novelty's yet to wear off.

Stream machine

PlayStation Now has been a fixture in the Sony furniture for some time now, and that's left it a little misunderstood. In absence of true backward compatibility on the PlayStation 4, many see it as a solution for PlayStation 3 gameplay on the Japanese giant's new-gen machine. But, as its recent release on the PC testifies, the...

If you were around for that whole saga with Far Harbor's horrible frame rate issues on PlayStation 4, then you'll know that we here at Push Square take technical performance quite seriously. Fallout 4's previous expansion ran terribly on Sony's console when it launched, constantly dipping below the 20...
