Sony's Really Got E3 2016 Leaks on Lockdown

It's oh so quiet

Nothing. There's just nothing. This time last year we'd stumbled upon a domain name for Horizon: Zero Dawn, newspaper The Guardian was running a story on – ahem – The Last Guardian, and there were other bits and bobs flying around. But this year, the Sony camp is on serious lockdown. There's just nothing leaking at all. To be...

Crash Bandicoot's Probably Going to Be in Skylanders: Imaginators

FFS

Crushing disappointment, readers – crushing. It looks like all of the Crash Bandicoot teasing is going to come down to this: a PlayStation 4 version of Skylanders: Imaginators including the iconic character. We reported earlier in the week that a special edition featuring the 'Coot had been spotted on a Singaporean website, but we didn't...

What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 121

The calm before the E3 2016 storm

Everything that possibly could have gone wrong went wrong this week, but it's going to take the onset of another Ice Age to prevent us from covering E3 2016 to the extent that you expect. Before the big show gets underway, though, there's just enough time for our weekly edition of WAYP. Let's get this over with...

On every gaming screen and VR

Oh, great. As we mentally prepare ourselves for a week of exorbitantly late night streams, industry icon Geoff Keighley has revealed that we can look forward to one more on 1st December, when The Game Awards will return.

Reaction: Sony Was Right to Reveal PS4K Prior to E3 2016

Sony Was Right to Reveal PS4K Prior to E3 2016

Now we can look forward to the show

The big question on Push Square's lips this week was whether Sony would reveal PlayStation 4K at E3 2016. We came to the conclusion that the manufacturer would have to chat about the souped-up system – after all, it would be embarrassing to watch the organisation deflect every question about the appliance...

Gran Turismo Sport's Epic E3 2016 Trailer Runs Rings Around Its Reveal

Much better

This is more like it. Gran Turismo Sport's reveal trailer was pretty darn disappointing to say the least, but Polyphony Digital's come good with this feature length E3 2016 clip. The video's designed to showcase all of the PlayStation 4 exclusive racer's headline features, including its immaculate attention to detail, e-sports angle,...

Snow way

Brit actor Kit Harington, best known for his portrayal as Jon Snow in the award-winning Game of Thrones, will assume the role of the villain in Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare – marking a departure for the type of characters that the London-based performer usually plays.

You're in for a Rough Time in PS4 RPG The Technomancer

Bad guys aplenty in new trailer

The Technomancer is out later this month, and it's dug up an E3 trailer to remind you of that fact. The action role-playing game, which takes place on dusty old Mars, certainly has potential - but has developer Spiders been able to overcome the problems that were so apparent in its last release, Bound by Flame? Only...

Why Isn't the PS4K Going to Be at E3 2016?

Sony's hanging tight for now

Sony's confirmed a "high-end" version of the PlayStation 4, which is codenamed Neo – but which we're calling PS4K because, let's be honest, it's a fantastic moniker. But the console – which will offer enhanced experiences for hardcore gamers – will not be at E3 2016. Why is that? Well, here's what Andrew House...

PS4K Will Be 'More Expensive' Than Existing Model

Well, duh

Sony has confirmed that the new PlayStation 4K – which it's revealed is in development – will retail at a "more expensive" price than the original console. The devices will be sold in tandem, so you can expect it to adopt a basic and premium price model. Currently, the PS4 sells for around $349.99. While the platform holder's not co

That Card Game Based on The Witcher's Probably Going to Be a Big Deal

Hearth-pwned

This week we brought you news of Gwent, a leaked card game based upon The Witcher's universe. While our very own gravel chopped editor Robert Ramsey maintained hope that it may end up on consoles, this author assumed that it would be a smartphone thing. Whichever of us turns out to be correct, it seems that the game's going to be a big...

May 2016 NPD: Uncharted 4 Helps US Industry Swing Upwards

No comment from Sony again

After April 2016's desperately dire NPD report, the US industry has rebounded in May, with total physical spend up four per cent year-over-year – raking in a handsome $528.6 million. While hardware and accessories declined yet again (by 10 per cent and two per cent respectively), it was software that propelled the...

Worse than Shawn Layden's shirt

Not like this – please, not like this! While your humble host was warring with faulty pre-E3 2016 hardware, a Singapore-based retailer named Qisahn has been busy listing a PlayStation 4 exclusive version of Skylanders: Imaginators – which will supposedly include Crash Bandicoot.
