Strap it on

The weeks seem to come and go quicker and quicker, but at least there's your regular dose of WAYP to look forward to on the weekend.

Poll: What Will You Be Spending Your 10 Per Cent PSN Discount On?

What Will You Be Spending Your 10 Per Cent PSN Discount On?

Decisions, decisions

When you really stop and think about it, Sony's "apology" for the PlayStation Network outage over Christmas is a bit of a marketing masterstroke. While the company gets to look like it's doing right by its consumers, we'd be shocked if it didn't see an enormous spike in sales when the offer goes into effect from 09:00AM local...

Opinion: Why You Shouldn't Write Off PS4 Racer DriveClub

Why You Shouldn't Write Off PS4 Racer DriveClub

Back on track

In many ways, Evolution Studios got lucky. DriveClub's launch was an unmitigated disaster, but the developer was able to quietly solve many of the title's issues while a much bigger storm gathered around games like Assassin's Creed Unity. Once that had cleared, the Runcorn-based developer responded with a rain cloud of its own, and...

Saints Row: Gat Out of Hell PS4 Reviews Rise Through the Fire and Flames

Rubber Johnny

There's been much ado about review code here at Push Square Towers of late, as our copy of Saints Row: Gat Out of Hell – and, consequently, bundled remaster Saints Row IV: Re-Elected – has seemingly got lost in the post. This means that we've, sadly, been unable to deliver on our New Year's Resolution of improving the timeliness...

What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 52

Running late

Wow! It's been a breakneck, busy, bananas kind of week behind-the-scenes here at Push Square Towers, so apologies if our usual programming schedule has been a bit all over the place. The exciting news is that Monday's bureaucracy paved the way for Friday's exuberance, so this author is sitting here with a renewed sense of enthusiasm...

Is It Now Time for Sony to Consider a $349.99 PS4 Price Promotion?

Talking in circles

Stop us if you've heard this one before. Yes, we're back with another familiar article involving PlayStation 4 price points, console sales, and the exact kind of story that's seemingly become our lifeblood over the past few months. Before you dive into the comments to tell us to fix our broken record, though, hear us out: we're...

Feature: Why the PS4 Is Selling So Extraordinarily Well

Why the PS4 Is Selling So Extraordinarily Well

Secret sauce

There were a few miffed reactions around the web earlier in the week when Sony announced that the PlayStation 4 has now sold a staggering 18.5 million units globally. A slip-up in the November NPD reports, coupled with a lack of truly meaningful exclusives over the holiday period, prompted some to ponder whether the platform holder...

Game of the Year: Platinum Trophy - Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor

Platinum Trophy - Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor

Precious

2014's Game of the Year winner perhaps comes as a surprise, given that we weren't all that confident in its success when it was originally unveiled. Unsure if it was a movie tie-in or simply another in a long line of disappointing Lord of the Rings titles, a slew of intriguing trailers, conference appearances, and developer interviews...

2014's Most Memorable PlayStation Music

Sounds good

The music that we hear in games plays an integral part in our enjoyment of the experience. While this is by no means exclusive to the medium, the interactive nature of games means that the memories linked with certain musical cues can carry more potency than in other types of media. Last year was a hell of a year for game soundtracks,...
