The Last of Us 2 Will Explore the Depths of Despair on PS4

Ex-employee outs forthcoming exclusive

The Last of Us was not only a critical smash, but it was also a gigantic commercial success for Sony, moving over seven million copies on the PlayStation 3 alone. Naughty Dog was probably always going to have to build some form of sequel, then – and if the Linked In profile of one soon-to-be very sheepish...

PS4's Price Drops to $329 at Walmart Ahead of the Holidays

Ready! Fight

Whether this is a case of Walmart trying to drive foot traffic to its stores, or Sony realising that it needs to respond if it wants to maintain its dwindling North American lead, the PlayStation 4 has dropped to $329.00 at the aforementioned outlet. It looks like all of the stock has been allocated at this point, but we figured that...

Dragon Ball Xenoverse's Latest Trailer Shows It Has Real Potential

Such incredible power

Much like Goku and his fellow protectors of Earth, upcoming PS4 and PS3 brawler Dragon Ball Xenoverse has some real potential. The game's latest trailer may be a little corny, but we're liking the look of the title's altered universe, original characters, and most importantly, its combat. Sporting a plot that's directly...

One Piece: Pirate Warriors 3 Will Be Sailing West on PS4, PS3, and Vita

That was fast

Given that we thought One Piece: Pirate Warriors 2 was rather good, we're excited to hear that its sequel, unsurprisingly named One Piece: Pirate Warriors 3, will be heading West. The announcement comes as something of a surprise, as the game isn't out in its native Japan until March. Nevertheless, publisher Bandai Namco has confirmed...

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...

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare PS4, PS3 Enlists for EU Christmas Sale

Scatter shot

Let’s face it: Sony’s big 12 Deals of Christmas initiative has been about as tasty as a plate full of Brussels sprouts. There have been some reasonable offers here and there, but nothing that’s going to set your trousers on fire – and this week is similar, even if there is a loophole that you may not actually be aware of...

Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee HD (PlayStation Network - Vita)

A remastered oddysee

When the Oddworld franchise made the move to 3D, the developer decided that many of the older 2D mechanics needed to come along with it. Saving captured innocents while solving puzzles and farting way more than is funny was still the name of the game, only now there were beautiful, wide environments to explore and a new...

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.

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.

This Dragon Quest Heroes Trailer Is a Real Blast from the Past

Time for Slime

As if the returning faces in this Dragon Quest Heroes trailer weren’t enough, the whole thing reminds us of a PSone-era cut-scene. There’s something about the plain but pretty art style that whisks us back to the early era of polygons – and we mean that in the best possible way, because the title looks great. It’s already...

Tetris Ultimate (PlayStation 4)

From Russia with indifference

The puzzle game used to be the staple of every platform’s portfolio. Be it Tetris, Columns, or Bust-a-Move, no console was complete without a score chasing outing of its own. In an age of Facebook and smartphones, though, those days are long gone, with Tetris the last bastion of a genre that’s largely been left...
