This is it, then: the big show beckons. E3 2016 is right around the corner, and you're probably going to want to know when the press conferences get underway.

Reaction: Sony Was Right to Reveal PS4K Prior to E3 2016

Sony Was Right to Reveal PS4K Prior to E3 2016

Now we can look forward to the show

The big question on Push Square's lips this week was whether Sony would reveal PlayStation 4K at E3 2016. We came to the conclusion that the manufacturer would have to chat about the souped-up system – after all, it would be embarrassing to watch the organisation deflect every question about the appliance...

Blockbusters

Love it or hate it, the time of hype and growing expectations is upon us.

PlayStation 4K - Are You In or Out?

Neo's the time to make up your mind

The rumoured PlayStation 4K may be announced at E3 2016 next week, potentially changing the landscape of consoles forever. With such a seismic shift on the cards, we've pulled together a gaggle of our gobbiest staffers in order ascertain whether this upgraded system is likely to flop or fly. Below you'll find a...

Feature: The 10 Best PS4 Games of 2016 So Far

The 10 Best PS4 Games of 2016 So Far

Off to a flyer

June has already arrived, which means that we're roughly halfway into 2016 already. But what a six months it's been for the PlayStation 4, with Sony's new-gen format really starting to find its feet and amass a compelling selection of games. With the excitement of E3 2016 around the corner, we thought that it would be fun to put...

Talking Point: Will Sony Announce PS4K at E3 2016?

Will Sony Announce PS4K at E3 2016?

Neo or never?

Sony doesn't really announce hardware at E3. There are exceptions: the PlayStation Move was hastily wheeled out a few years ago in reaction to the Kinect, while the ill-fated but kinda awesome PSPgo was also confirmed during one Los Angeles show. But most of its big system reveals tend to occur elsewhere: the PlayStation 4 was...

Video: Has Manhunt Come Dressed to Kill on PS4?

Has Manhunt Come Dressed to Kill on PS4?

Making a murderer

One of the most controversial games of the PlayStation 2 era slipped a noose around the neck of the PlayStation 4 recently, and we figured that it was worth checking out. Manhunt is the latest title to be spruced up for Sony's new-gen system, with Trophies and 1080p visuals added to the very bloody broth. But is it worth...

The Witcher 3: Blood and Wine Mutation Character Builds

Your one-stop mutation station

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt - Blood and Wine allows you to transform Geralt into an almost unstoppable force with the right combinations of mutations and skills. Only available via the huge expansion, mutations are acquired through a quest that you can take on relatively early during your time in Toussaint. Once you've...

Talking Point: Was Sony's E3 2015 Presser Really the Greatest Ever?

Was Sony's E3 2015 Presser Really the Greatest Ever?

Magic moments

Thinking back on it, E3 2015 was a bit of a blur. We were outrageously sceptical ahead of PlayStation's press conference, and if you go back and read our predictions, that's abundantly clear to see. We'd heard on the grapevine that Sony was going to use its media briefing to focus primarily on strategic partnerships with third-party...

Talking Point: Should Sony Leverage PS4's Japanese Game Lineup at E3 2016?

Should Sony Leverage PS4's Japanese Game Lineup at E3 2016?

East wars

E3 is a weird thing. The annual Los Angeles-based convention is attended solely by press and retail, is anticipated mostly by enthusiasts, but is by far the most "mainstream" of all of the gaming shows. Think about it: if Gamescom is eccentric European cuisine, then E3 is a hamburger and fries; if the Tokyo Game Show is Katanagatari ,...

What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 119

Ils sont les meilleurs

Champions League final day has arrived, which means that we're hours away from seeing two cagey Spanish teams cancel each other out for 90 minutes. That's not stopped the British contingent of Push Square Towers from feeling giddy, though, with Euro 2016 mere weeks away as well. Toss in the Olympics and Wimbledon, too, and who...

Poll: Are You Enjoying Overwatch on PS4?

Are You Enjoying Overwatch on PS4?

And who's your favourite character?

Overwatch made a big, big splash earlier this week when it launched on PlayStation 4. The team based shooter from developer-that-can-do-no-wrong Blizzard has already captured the hearts of many a Push Square scribe, but how do you feel about it? Has its accessibility got you addicted? Have you had your Play of...

Round Up: TMNT: Mutants in Manhattan Gets Deep Panned by Critics

TMNT: Mutants in Manhattan Gets Deep Panned by Critics

This isn't what we ordered

After the enjoyable jaunt that is Transformers: Devastation, we had reasonably high hopes for Platinum Games' take on Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, but it's not looking good for the mean green fighting machines. There are a few reviews dotted around the web right now, and the majority of them aren't exactly positive. So,...

Round Up: The Witcher 3: Blood and Wine Reviews Are Overflowing with Praise

The Witcher 3: Blood and Wine Reviews Are Overflowing with Praise

Geralt's done it again, it seems

Last year, we gave The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt a 10/10 in our review, and we gave its first expansion, Hearts of Stone, another 10/10. For weeks now, we've been wondering if the second and final expansion, Blood and Wine, would secure a similar score, making it a perfect run for Geralt of Rivia. As it turns out, we're...
