Badland: Game of the Year Edition Brings Yet More Quirky Platforming to PS4, PS3, and Vita

How many's that now?

We've completely lost count of how many side scrolling platformers are available on PlayStation platforms. With the advent of the PS4 and its keen indie initiative, it feels like we get about ten platforming-puzzler hybrids pushed onto the PlayStation Store every week. Lo and behold, here we have, of course, the announcement of...

Sly Joins the Cast of the Ratchet & Clank Movie

And not the Cooper kind

Sony's continuing to, ahem, ratchet up the budget of the Ratchet & Clank Movie. What originally seemed like a direct-to-video affair seems to get bigger in ambition all of the time, with household names such as Sylvester Stallone, Paul Giamatti, Paul Goodman, and Rosario Dawson now reported to be part of the cast...

Hella Good News! Life Is Strange: Episode 3 Launches Next Week

For reals

If the fantasy setting of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt isn't whetting your whistle, then you may be more tempted to tour Arcadia Bay from 19th May instead. Square Enix has announced that the third episode in its divisive high school series Life Is Strange will debut next week on the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3. If you've already stumped...

Wow, 35 Minutes of Witcher 3 PS4 Footage Takes Us from One Side of the Map to the Other

Leg it

We already know that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is one heck of a big game. The open world map apparently takes a good 20 minutes to travel from one end of it to the other on horseback, and that's without factoring in any strange happenings or tense fights with beasties. However, if you're not quite taken in by the sheer scale of CD Projekt...

Japanese Sales Charts: Vita Overtakes PS4 as Not a Single New-Gen Title Enters Top 20

Ouch

The PlayStation 4's steadily slipping down the Japanese charts, as it suffered another sales drop last week. Sony's latest console shifted 15,992 units as it fell into third place, behind the New 3DS LL and the PS Vita. The latter continues to escape store shelves at a solid rate, though, selling through 17,273 units. You can compare the...

13th May 2015 (Europe)

Tasty stuff

If you like indie games, you're in luck this week, as there are a lot of them being added as part of the European PlayStation Store update. Nom Nom Galaxy, Lost Orbit, and Toren are perhaps the biggest names in that department – but a quick shout out to Schrodinger's Cat, too. Of

The Number of Assassin's Creed Syndicate Special Editions Is Embarrassing

Shakes head

You may need an abacus to keep count of the various special editions that have been announced for Assassin's Creed Syndicate following its reveal yesterday. Ubisoft may have proved that it's learned from Unity's disastrous launch by debuting the title with tons of gameplay, but it's certainly not packing in its convoluted collector's...

Ubisoft's E3 2015 Press Conference Gets a Date and Time

Not too late, thankfully

Well would you look at that, another somewhat reasonably timed E3 2015 press conference. Ubisoft's announced that its presser will begin at 23:00PM BST / 15:00PM PST / 18:00PM EST on the 14th June. That's just a few hours after EA's showcase. You see, we UK writers here at Push Square aren't too bothered by late nights,...

PS3 Owners, It's Time to Upgrade to the PS4

Ubisoft's moving on

There are still lots of people clinging to the fact that the PlayStation 3 has a much larger install base than the PlayStation 4, but the reality is that there are many, many more active users on Sony's super machine. Ubisoft thinks so anyway, as it's ditching development on last-gen systems – well, aside from the odd casual...

CD Projekt Red Reckons It's Already Fixed The Witcher 3's Supposed PS4 Frame Rate Issues

Burn the witch

Another blockbuster release, another rampant and potentially damaging technical discussion echoes across the internet. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt was on the receiving end of a lot of praise yesterday when reviews from around the web went live, but all it took was one mention of the game sporting a supposedly choppy frame rate for...

Review: Toren (PlayStation 4)

Toren (PlayStation 4)

You're Toren us apart

Toren marks the first release by Brazilian developer Swordtales, and is the latest of the smaller indie titles to grace the PlayStation 4. Sony's console seems like a great fit for the foray, too, as it takes a huge helping of inspiration from a PlayStation 2 classic, ICO. Of course, while drawing influence from such an iconic...

12th May 2015 (North America)

We go again

People say that the PlayStation 4 has no games, but we often look at the North American PlayStation Store update and weep. Our review planning document can't keep up with all the new arrivals, and when you take a look at the sheer scale of new releases available in this week's refresh, you may be able to appreciate why. Of course, it's...
