Which PS4 Games Are You Most Looking Forward to in 2015?

Thinking ahead

We love navel gazing as much as the next person here at Push Square Towers, which is why we've compiled seven features on our favourite 2014 PlayStation forays. However, in an industry that's constantly moving forwards, it's hard not to look ahead as well. That's why we've pulled our team together one last time to discuss our most...

Best PS Vita Games of 2014

The whole world in your hands

For a format that's struggled in an age of smartphones and tablet games, the PlayStation Vita has carved out a committed niche of core gamers who love the handheld to death. We get a lot of requests here at Push Square, but number one with a bullet is more coverage for the Japanese giant's miniscule machine – and...

Season's Greetings from PlayStation's Premium Developers

They wish you a Merry Christmas

Christmas wouldn't be the same without more greetings cards than you know what to do with. Waltzing wintery streets with a square of cardboard that won't fit in your pocket is what the holidays are all about, so it kind of makes sense for game developers to acknowledge their fans with bits and pieces of custom art...

PS4 Exclusive The Order: 1886 Wishes You a Silent Night

Panic on the streets of London

Sony's done a pretty terrible job of promoting The Order: 1886 so far, but this brand new Christmas trailer has really got us in the mood. Set to a haunting rendition of Silent Night, the seasonal clip shows off several unseen sequences from the game – and the imagery in the video really suits the harrowing audio...

PS4's Worst Game Crawls Out of the Basement as Brawl

The dark below

Hands up if you remember Basement Crawl? The curious Bomberman-inspired PlayStation 4 exclusive from Bloober Team attained a reasonable amount of attention due to it being one of the first next-gen titles to deploy in 2014. The final product left a lot to be desired, however, prompting it to earn a miserable Metascore of just 27. Not...

We know that companies change their minds all of the time, but this is insane.

Clearly sensing dollar signs from all of the free...

The platform holder has put the lid on things today, announcing that for the next 48 hours, Far Cry 4 will be available for as low as £39.99 on...

Actually, PS4 Had the Most Great Games This Year

Don't shoot the messenger

There's an image from Nintendo doing the rounds that claims that the Wii U had the most great games this year. It uses a combination of Metascore and user score from aggregation website Metacritic to draw its conclusion, which struck us as an unusual fusion of information. Perhaps this is because the aforementioned...
