Feature: Five Possible PS4 Virtual Reality Experiences to Whet Your Appetite

Five Possible PS4 Virtual Reality Experiences to Whet Your Appetite

Different dimension

Sony’s rumoured virtual reality headset may be the worst kept secret in the video game industry. While the platform holder’s yet to publicly acknowledge the oft-discussed device, it’s been a source of insider excitement for over six months now. We first heard about the Oculus Rift-inspired accessory way back in September,...

Hardware Review: PlayStation Gold Wireless Stereo Headset - Sound Buy

PlayStation Gold Wireless Stereo Headset - Sound Buy

Gold standard

Having recently graduated with a distinction from the school of Turtle Beach, this editor was not especially looking forward to another battle of wits against a pair of humble headphones. The elaborately named Ear Force PX4 peripheral garnered a glowing appraisal in the sound quality portion of our recent review, but was ultim

Live from PlayStation Is PS4's Secret Killer App

Stream machine

As a part of the media that trades primarily in words, I’m told that my role will be redundant soon. Reading is still a popular means of acquiring information, but gaming is a visual medium, and improving broadband speeds are making video a much more viable option. This can be evidenced all over the Internet, where broadcasters...

What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 23

Zombies ahoy

It's evident from the Push Square staff blurbs below that now is definitely a good time to be a PlayStation gamer. Whether you're an RPG, shooter, puzzle, visual novel, or action-adventure fan, there's something for everyone this weekend. Of course, this isn't a one way street, so don't forget to let us know which titles you'll be...

Game of the Month: February 2014 - Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc

February 2014 - Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc

Despair wins again

There may not have been too many releases to get our sweaty hands on last month, but February still proved to provide a much stronger lineup than January's rather weak offering, as a number of games walked away with some high scores. Of course, the presence of such highly praised titles meant that our staff vote was always going...

Who Would Win Wednesdays: Morrigan vs. Bayonetta

Morrigan vs. Bayonetta

Round six

Push Square staff watched in horror during last week's Who Would Win Wednesdays as Wei Shen spin-kicked favourite Kazuma Kiryu right around the chops. As such, we thought that it would be best to step away from the testosterone of sweaty men and put forward a duel between two female characters. As always, we'll provide you with...

Guide: Slaying for Beginners in Toukiden: The Age of Demons on PS Vita

Slaying for Beginners in Toukiden: The Age of Demons on PS Vita

Slay school

Greetings wannabe Slayers, and welcome to what will hopefully be a helpful beginner's guide to Tecmo Koei's Oni slaughtering simulator. As we stated in our review, Toukiden: The Age of Demons may not be quite as demanding as titles of a similar nature like Capcom's Monster Hunter series, but there are still quite a few mechanics to...

Poll: Is Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes Worth the Price on PS4?

Is Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes Worth the Price on PS4?

Much more than a packet of cigs

Few franchises are big enough to fashion a furore out of demos, but Metal Gear Solid has always existed among the select few properties that can. When a clever Konami opted to bundle the opening moments of Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty with new property Zone of the Enders, many purchased the latter just to see...

Who Would Win Wednesdays: Wei Shen vs. Kazuma Kiryu

Wei Shen vs. Kazuma Kiryu

Round five

After last week's Who Would Win Wednesdays saw Kratos absolutely devastate Dante by the feature's biggest margin of victory yet, we thought that it would be best to reel in the fighters somewhat and have ourselves a duel between two mortals. As always, we'll provide a helpful dollop of information regarding the combatants, a poll where...

Talking Point: Should Sony Respond to Microsoft's UK Xbox One Price Cut?

Should Sony Respond to Microsoft's UK Xbox One Price Cut?

Incredible crisis

You’ve got to hand it to Microsoft, it knows how to react quickly. The Redmond-based manufacturer has been flip-flopping between Xbox One strategies faster than Usain Bolt in sandals, starting all the way back at E3 where the company controversially defended its abhorrent digital rights management policies – only to yank them...

Hands On: Traversing the Trenches of PS4 Shooter Wolfenstein: The New Order

Traversing the Trenches of PS4 Shooter Wolfenstein: The New Order

Führious

1981 saw the release of Castle Wolfenstein, a very early Commodore 64 top-down stealth action title that found you angrily taking down the entire Nazi war machine singlehandedly via a series of small, pixelated rooms. Now, some thirty years after the series’ inception, Swedish studio MachineGames is looking to continue the veteran...

PS4 Sales, System Launches, and Strider

Play and peace out

As the sun sets on another busy week at Push Square towers, we’re taking this opportunity to recap all of the biggest stories from the past seven days. There’s never a dull moment in the so-called PlayStation Nation, but the last few days have been especially action packed, with the PlayStation 4 launching in Japan and The...

What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 22

Back to school

Guess what? There are only 305 days until Christmas! More importantly, though, there are only ten days until everyone's favourite time of the year – Pancake Day. Here at Push Square, we're all about forward-thinking, and that's exactly why we're letting you in on our gaming plans for the weekend. But in between your sudden rush to...
