Geek chic

Want a tip regarding the inner workings of the Push Square hive mind? If we start trotting out clothes or accessories, then you can guarantee that it’s a slow news day. Yes, we’ve had the Minecraft acquisition which is a big deal, but this author’s spent the day trying to work it all out. The two scrapped articles and several hours...

Sony CEO Kaz Hirai Is Happy with the PS4's Success, But Wants to Do More in Japan

Hip hip Hirai

When he's not taking buckets of icy water to the head, Kazuo Hirai is fulfilling the presumably important role of Sony CEO. In a recent interview, the gaffer spoke about the PlayStation 4's remarkable success. What's more, the big-wig stated that the company learned a lot from the PlayStation 3, and that it has carried these lessons...

TGS 2014: What Will Sony Be Live Streaming in Japan This Week?

What Will Sony Be Live Streaming in Japan This Week?

Make a date

Wait, it’s the Tokyo Game Show this week? We’ve been so busy concentrating our efforts on Destiny that we’d forgotten that gaming’s biggest convention in the East was scheduled to start this week. Fortunately, we’re not exactly expecting any more megatons from the Japanese giant, but the platform holder has lined up an...

News: UK Sales Charts: Destiny Rocket Jumps into Podium Position

UK Sales Charts: Destiny Rocket Jumps into Podium Position

Strong showing from Activision's new super series

It would have been a bigger surprise this week if Destiny had failed to land in the top spot, but, as expected, it’s rocketed straight to the summit. The next big game from Bungie sold best on the PlayStation 4, and also smashed new intellectual property records in the process. As a result,...

Unsurprisingly, Destiny Sold Best on PS4 in the UK

And it's the biggest thing since sliced bread

The critical reception may be a boiling pot of piping hot and lukewarm, but that hasn’t stopped Destiny from achieving the biggest new intellectual property launch in the UK, brushing aside Watch Dogs, which was the previous record holder. Unsurprisingly, the PlayStation 4 version sold best on British...

Annihilate the Competition in Magicka 2's Sing-a-Long Contest

Disco, disco, good, good

While E3 was brimming with more gaming goodness than you could fit into a picnic hamper, a trailer that left a lasting impression on this writer was the announcement of Magicka 2 on the PlayStation 4. Not only did it mock its own character's unemployment since the original title, but also the downsides of its iconic friendly...

Free PS4 DriveClub Taster Will Come in Addition to Usual PlayStation Plus Allocation

October update will be extra special

You may have a few concerns with the quality of PlayStation Plus right now, but Sony’s aiming to shepherd you into the holiday season in style this October with a bumper update – including the hotly anticipated DriveClub PS Plus Edition sampler. While this doesn’t represent the full release, developer...

One Day, You May Be Able to Play Every PlayStation Game That Matters with PlayStation Now

On demand

Enthusiasm in PlayStation Now has plummeted since Sony’s beta pricing scheme was revealed, but while there’s tweaking to be done, it’s clear that the online streaming service represents a big portion of the platform holder’s future. Indeed, it’s unlikely to happen any time soon, but we can see a day where the Japanese giant’s...

Talking Point: What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 38

What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 38

A date with Destiny

You’re witnessing Push Square history here. For the first time ever, every single staff writer but one will be playing the same game – way to send this editor’s obsessive compulsive disorder into disarray, Jamie. And what is that game, we hear you ask? Here’s a clue: it’s got really bored talking cubes in it. Sammy...

News: Zombie Apocalypse Sim Dying Light Lumbers onto PS4 and PS3 in January

Zombie Apocalypse Sim Dying Light Lumbers onto PS4 and PS3 in January

Brainsss

In theory, Dying Light should be a fantastic game. It takes endless zombie hordes and combines them with Mirror's Edge-esque parkour mechanics. However, the game is being developed by Techland – the studio behind the thoroughly ordinary Dead Island series – so we're reserving our judgement for the time being. At any rate, the open...

Round Up: Destiny PS4 Reviews Shoot for the Moon

Destiny PS4 Reviews Shoot for the Moon

Your Venus

The industry hasn’t been quite as eager to rush out Destiny reviews as quickly as we expected, which is good to see. That said, with the campaign purportedly taking about 10 hours to complete – leaving ample time to experience the Crucible and a few Strikes – critiques are beginning to appear for Bungie’s next big thing. We’ll...

Wow! Sony Gaffer Kaz Hirai Knows How to Take a Bucket of Icy Water

Wet and smiles

Kaz Hirai may be a shrewd businessman, but he’s also quite a fun character. The current Sony chief executive – who worked his way up through the ranks at PlayStation – has taken the ice bucket challenge after being nominated by brand founder Ken Kutaragi, and, unsurprisingly, he deals with the arctic drenching like a boss...

News: Wait, There Are More Unannounced PS4 Titles Due This Year?

Wait, There Are More Unannounced PS4 Titles Due This Year?

Sony certainly thinks so

Isn’t that just typical? We spend the best part of the afternoon penning an article on the PlayStation 4’s borderline bonkers November lineup, and then an additional unannounced title gets teased. Referenced in an MCV advertisement, which lists all of the retail releases due out on the next-gen machine this year, a...

Feature: No Games November - PS4's Lineup Is Starting to Look Silly

No Games November - PS4's Lineup Is Starting to Look Silly

Are you insane?

No new system launch would be complete without barbed comments about the quality of the box’s lineup. It’s something that both the PlayStation 3 and Vita have gone through, as well as rival formats such as the Nintendo Wii U and 3DS. We’ve always felt that the PlayStation 4 has been unfairly treated in this instance, as...

Grand Theft Auto V PS4 Hijacks the Next-Gen on 18th November

Los Santos looks even better

The best thing about Rockstar – aside from its award winning games – is the manner in which it goes about announcing them. While other publishers pre-empt reporters with Twitter teasers and cryptic press releases, the Grand Theft Auto V developer prefers to nonchalantly drop bombs – usually when we expect them...

Destiny's PS4 Launch Proves PSN Isn't Tied Together with String

Sony's servers survive

And breathe again. By penning this article we’re all too aware that we’re foreshadowing the kind of outage that would rival 2011’s widely publicised hack attack, but at the time of writing we can say with confidence that the PlayStation Network is fine. For websites such as this – the kind that break traffic records...

Sony: PS Vita's Remarkably Resilient, and Won't Fade Away

Just don't expect any more first-party blockbusters

It may seem like Sony’s placed the PlayStation Vita in a bag of rocks and tossed it in the Thames, but SCEUK boss Fergal Gara insists that that’s not the case. Despite the portable device failing to appear during the format holder’s E3 and Gamescom press conferences, the company insists...
