Stop the Press, PSN Will Be Undergoing Maintenance This Week

Gasp

Believe it or not, the PlayStation Network is undergoing maintenance later this week, and as per usual, it seems to be of the standard sort.

The service will be impacted on 15th January, and the maintenance will last four hours, from 17:00PM GMT to...

You Need to Complete Quick-Time Events in Yakuza Zero to Answer Telephones

New video is NSFW

It's not often that we watch a 19-minute trailer for a game and are left gob-smacked by a mere 60 seconds of it, but that's what's happened with Yakuza Zero's latest video. As you've probably guessed from the headline, series protagonist Kazuma Kiryu will have to complete a quick-time event to properly answer a telephone, and...

Fight the Dying Light with New Book Based on Techland's PS4 Game

Reader beware

Transmedia storytelling always seems forced, but there's just enough plot in properties like Mass Effect and The Elder Scrolls to make it work. Polish developer Techland isn't exactly best known for its storytelling, but that hasn't stopped Warner Bros from going all-in and commissioning a novel based on its forthcoming parkour-'em-up,...

Hats Off to Mortal Kombat X's Latest Kombatant, Kung Lao

Bowled over

Mortal Kombat's resident hat model will be switching out his smooth headgear for something a little more rugged in the forthcoming Mortal Kombat X. Ed Boon, the gravel voiced veteran behind the franchise, has tweeted out a high-res image of Kung Lao from the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 sequel, and he's sporting a spiky sombrero as...

Payday 2: Crimewave Edition May Say Heist to PS4 in April

On the rob

Re-releases are all the rage right now, but this one is so low-profile that we'd forgotten it was even happening in the first place. PSU reports that Best Buy has slapped a 21st April release date on Payday 2: Crimewave Edition, the PlayStation 4 update of Overkill Software's acclaimed robbery simulator. That's a Tuesday so could be...

Dead or Alive 5: Last Round's New Diva Is Dressed Exactly as You'd Expect

Saved by the bell

We're guessing that it was a late Friday afternoon when Team Ninja decided upon Dead or Alive 5: Last Round's new character. "Before we head home, guys, we just need to come up with a bonus brawler to make our forthcoming PlayStation 4 re-release look like real value," one executive likely said, sitting around a large table...

Rock Band Reboots with Foo Fighters, Arctic Monkeys DLC This Week

R U Sure?

Dust off those putrid plastic instruments: Rock Band is back. We're not referring to a sequel, of course – not yet, anyway – but brand new DLC for the series, which brings an end to an incredible 21 month hiatus. Harmonix famously stopped supporting Rock Band 3 and Rock Band Blitz almost two years ago, but, like a rockstar that's run...

Just What the Heck Is Media Molecule Making for PS4?

New video includes some clues

We get spoon-fed quite a lot of information on a daily basis here at Push Square Towers, but the best part about the job is piecing together press releases, statements, and other tidbits in order to form an impression of the industry as it stands. One thing that we can't figure out, however, is what the heck Media...

Rumour: Could The Elder Scrolls Online Be Adventuring onto PS4 Next Month?

Could The Elder Scrolls Online Be Adventuring onto PS4 Next Month?

By the Nine

The Elder Scrolls Online's console appearance is pretty much the stuff of myth and legend at this point, but given that it's now 2015, we reckon news of its current state must be on the way. Word from the Gods may come sooner than we thought, though, because the MMO has been spotted on the Microsoft Store, complete with a release date...

Rumour: You Won't Need PlayStation Plus to Play PS4 Online This Weekend

You Won't Need PlayStation Plus to Play PS4 Online This Weekend

For the savers

Sony's sold a staggering 18.5 million PlayStation 4 consoles to date, but it only has 10.9 million active PlayStation Plus subscribers. This means that almost half of the system's owners are currently without online multiplayer, and we suspect that this is a trend that the Japanese giant would very much like to change. Fortunately,...

Journey PS4 Developer Nearing the Peak of Production Mountain

Sing if you're winning

One game that was conspicuous in its absence before Christmas last year was Journey. Sony officially announced the PlayStation 4 port at GamesCom in August, which put an end to a series of hushed chirps regarding the re-release. However, while its contemporary The Unfinished Swan came and went in late October, there was no...
