UK Sales Charts: A Rare Change at the Summit

Blast from the past

Xbox One exclusive Rare Replay shot straight to the top of the UK sales charts in a desperately slow summer week, securing the legendary British developer's first number one since Banjo-Kazooie all the way back in 1998. Elsewhere, last week's frontrunner LEGO Jurassic World moved down into second, while Batman: Arkham Knight,...

News: PS4's Need for Speed Reboot Will Be Online Only

PS4's Need for Speed Reboot Will Be Online Only

But why?

We reckon that the new Need for Speed looks pretty darn rad – especially with those so-bad-they're-good full-motion video cut-scenes. However, there is one downside: the game will be playable online only. Speaking with Official Xbox Magazine – yes, we know – executive producer Marcus Nilsson attempted to explain why that's the case,...

Community: Final Fantasy VII Voted Push Square Readers' Greatest Ever Game

Final Fantasy VII Voted Push Square Readers' Greatest Ever Game

Cloud nine

We, along with the rest of the Push Square community, were screaming like little girls when Final Fantasy VII Remake was announced for the PlayStation 4 during Sony's jaw-dropping E3 2015 press conference. It's fitting, then, that little over two months later, the original PSone version of Final Fantasy VII has been voted as Push...

Here Come the Star Wars PS4 Hardware Bundles

May the force be with you

Sony may not have a tentpole exclusive to hang its figurative hat on this holiday, but it has Star Wars instead. Even if it hasn't been announced yet, we all know that there's going to be a Star Wars: Battlefront bundle this Christmas, but while it bides its time before revealing that, it has prepared a special package...

Gamescom 2015: Hellblade Unsheathes Its Sword in PS4 Gameplay Clip

Hellblade Unsheathes Its Sword in PS4 Gameplay Clip

Battles in the brain

Ninja Theory's probably one of the most divisive names in gaming, but we're rather fond of the Cambridge-based studio's portfolio. Hellblade, however, definitely looks like it could do with a lot more time in the oven. Some very early footage from the forthcoming Celtic escapade has battled its way out of Gamescom 2015, and...

News: Is This Redesigned PS4 User Interface an Improvement?

Is This Redesigned PS4 User Interface an Improvement?

Thinking outside the box

We reckon that the PlayStation 4's user interface is pretty darn good, but it could be better. We're not especially fond of the PlayStation Store icon's placement for starters, but the content ribbon can also be a little clunky to navigate. Fortunately, graphic designer Ryan Duncan has dreamed up a solution to that...

Talking Point: What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 79

What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 79

Inner smile

The Premier League season is back underway, so that means that this author will be spending the next ten or so months composing WAYP with half an eye on the BBC text updates. Of course, this article isn't about football, but the PlayStation games that will be keeping you company all weekend. Here's what our team are up to. Sammy Barker,...

News: Gal Gun: Double Peace Plans on Bringing Its Risqué Pheremone Business West on PS4 and Vita

Gal Gun: Double Peace Plans on Bringing Its Risqué Pheremone Business West on PS4 and Vita

Careful now

If you've ever seen footage of Gal Gun: Double Peace, then you'll know why we put the word 'risqué' in the headline. The shoot-'em-up sees you blast away infatuated schoolgirls with the power of love against colourful backdrops, and for some, it's bound to be one step too far into the realm of weird, but at least we're seeing an...

A Boy and His Blob to Eat Magic Beans on PS4

Blobby, blobby

It may surprise some of our American readers, but the NES was never particularly popular in Europe. The console certainly had a presence in these parts, but computers like the Commodore 64 and ZX Spectrum were far more prevalent – especially in the UK. This author did have a friend, however, who had one of the grey boxes, and A...

Gamescom 2015: Proof Star Wars Battlefront Will Be the Biggest Game of the Year

Proof Star Wars Battlefront Will Be the Biggest Game of the Year

The force is with EA

There's a lot of chatter about exclusives at the moment, but the Gamescom 2015 awards provide a small reminder of how little these matter in the grand scheme of things. Star Wars Battlefront will leave this year's German convention with no less than five awards, including Best of Show, Best PS4 Game, Best Online Multiplayer...

Review: Yu-Gi-Oh! Legacy of the Duelist (PS4)

Yu-Gi-Oh! Legacy of the Duelist (PS4)

It's time to d-d-d-d-d-d-d-duel, again

The worldwide phenomenon known as Yu-Gi-Oh! is a strategic battle game originally based on a manga in which players duel with cards. Decks are made of monsters, spells, and traps, and the object of the duel is to reduce your opponent's life points from 8,000 to 0. Each player can customise their deck with forty...

Yakuza 5 May Be the Last PS3 Exclusive You Must Have

Let's all go to Kamurocho

We know that a lot of you love your PlayStation 3, but there's no doubt that the device is on its way out. Several franchises are still launching simultaneously on the last-gen system and the PlayStation 4, of course, but we doubt that there'll be many more exclusives for the machine moving forwards. As such, Yakuza 5 may...

Gamescom 2015: Final Fantasy XV Team in Talks to Use Just Cause 3 Engine Tech

Final Fantasy XV Team in Talks to Use Just Cause 3 Engine Tech

Will this game ever come out?

Final Fantasy XV is releasing next year, according to director Hajime Tabata. However, striding into full development of the release hasn't stopped the team from engaging in new talks with the studio behind Just Cause 3 - another property under Square Enix's umbrella. "What we're going to be talking about is possibly...

The Witcher 3 PS4 Patch 1.08 Promises Performance Fixes, Is 2.8GB, and It's Out Now

Taming the hunt

Here we are downloading yet another update for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. Available now on PlayStation 4, the patch promises dozens of performance, quest, and bug fixes. It's perhaps not the most exciting update that the game's ever received, but it sets the stage nicely for the upcoming New Game Plus downloadable content, which we...
