Sony: The Best Is Yet to Come on the PlayStation 4

Have a little patience

It’s been a funny old year for the PlayStation 4. After an extraordinary 2013 for the PlayStation 3, the past twelve months have seemed like a bit of a disappointment – but when you consider the sheer wealth of top titles that have deployed in 2014, it’s hard to call it a wash out. SCEUK boss Fergal Gara is proud of...

Preview: Is PS4 Exclusive The Order: 1886 a Revolution or a Relic?

Is PS4 Exclusive The Order: 1886 a Revolution or a Relic?

Lycan it

The Order: 1886 may be set in the late 19th century, but its presentation is anything but ancient. Ready at Dawn’s inaugural home console escapade is not only the best looking game on the PlayStation 4, but we’d argue that it’s some way ahead of the best looking PC titles, too. Granted, it’s not running in 4K resolution, and has...

Store Update: 10th December 2014 (Europe)

10th December 2014 (Europe)

A realm reborn

There’s a free Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn trial for PlayStation 4 available as part of this month’s European PlayStation Store update, which has this editor shivering in the corner of a dark room, muttering “must resist” in a deranged fashion. Also up for grabs is Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris, which certainly...

These Multiplayer DLC Executions for The Last of Us Are Skipping the PS3

Memory madness

The Last of Us is getting some downloadable extras for its underrated multiplayer mode, including new weapons, skills, items, outfits, gestures, and special executions. In truth, this isn't terribly interesting news, but there is one slight quirk: a selection of the extras won't be making it to the PlayStation 3 version of the game...

News: Yes, Lara Croft Will Likely Still Climb onto PS4 in Rise of the Tomb Raider

Yes, Lara Croft Will Likely Still Climb onto PS4 in Rise of the Tomb Raider

Exclusive antics

We daresay that that recent Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End demo may have prompted you to forget about poor Lara Croft – after all, the recent Tomb Raider reboot, while thoroughly enjoyable, was very derivative of Nathan Drake’s primary PlayStation 3 escapades. However, the forthcoming Rise of Tomb Raider has been brought back to...

9th December 2014 (North America)

A Lara games to get through

There’s no rest for the wicked, and Lara Croft’s got time for one last crusade before Christmas. The daring diva’s teaming up with a few friends this time, though, with Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris set to revisit the co-operative blueprints laid by Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light a few years ago. The...

Review: Game of Thrones: Episode 1 - Iron from Ice (PlayStation 4)

Game of Thrones: Episode 1 - Iron from Ice (PlayStation 4)

Game of the North

Telltale Games has been busy. The studio has already released episodes for three different series throughout 2014, and the premiere instalment of Game of Thrones marks the fourth and final one of the year. Deploying such a wealth of content – this is the company’s tenth outing in 12 months – could stretch any team thin, but...

Review: Teslagrad (PlayStation 4)

Teslagrad (PlayStation 4)

Fatal attraction

Teslagrad’s opening scene is bold, beautiful, and utterly beguiling, cleverly drawing you into its world, without wasting a single second on needless exposition. Unfortunately – while certainly a lot of fun – the rest of the game fails to live up to the lofty precedent set by this prologue. It’s a shame, as hidden just below...

Are You PS4's Best Player? Sony Wants You to Prove It

Test your limits

You want to be the very best, right – like no one ever was? Well, now’s the time to prove yourself. Sony’s running a multiplayer contest here in the UK, with a series of challenges putting your proficiency with a DualShock 4 to the test. There are tons of prizes up for grabs, with brand new PlayStation TVs and PlayStation...

News: Don't Have Destiny's First Expansion? Then You're Locked Out of Some Existing Content

Don't Have Destiny's First Expansion? Then You're Locked Out of Some Existing Content

Isn't that nice

There isn't much that gets this usually calm and collected associate editor riled up, but Bungie's latest move with Destiny's The Dark Below expansion pack – which released earlier today – has everyone in the Push Square office clambering for safety from this author's outrage. Indeed, upon booting up the sci-fi shooter just...

Review: Akiba's Trip: Undead & Undressed (PlayStation 4)

Akiba's Trip: Undead & Undressed (PlayStation 4)

Take off your pants and jacket

Welcome back to the land of the undead and undressed, where you are a modern day vampire roaming the streets of Akihabara, stripping others of their finest threads. Akiba’s Trip: Undead & Undressed has been doing the rounds on Sony’s systems for a while now, finally arriving on the PlayStation 4 following a...

Review: Speakeasy (PlayStation 4)

Speakeasy (PlayStation 4)

Don't lose your head

Speakeasy is what happens when you take a great idea, strip it of all but the very bare essentials necessary for it to work, and then release it at about ten times its worth and hope that people buy it based on the premise alone. If it were free-to-play, you’d feel ripped off. This game isn’t just bad, it’s insultingly...

Destiny Discounted on PS4, PS3 in European Christmas Deals

The last Guardian

Sony’s big European Christmas countdown is continuing in earnest, this time with discounts for the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 versions of first-person shooter Destiny. Don’t expect to be saving too much cash, though, as the Guardian Edition will be dropping down to £54.99 on both formats, while the vanilla release will...
