Having Problems with Your PS4 Controller's Analogue Sticks? These Aluminium Alternatives Should Help

Give us some stick

There’s no denying that the PlayStation 4 controller is an enormous step forward from its predecessor, but early reports did complain about a defect in the DualShock 4’s analogue sticks. While we haven’t encountered the issue ourselves here at Push Square towers, a not insignificant number of early adopters have reported...

Everybody's Gone to the Rapture and Left This Trailer Behind

The end of the world as we know it

It’s been quite a while since we last got a glimpse of Brighton-based developer The Chinese Room’s forthcoming PlayStation 4 exclusive Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture – and it looks like you may have to wait a little while longer for a proper look at the next-gen release. The company’s released a brand...

Sony Says It Won't Ever Force Microtransactions into Its Games

Cough up

Microtransactions are a mainstay in the current console climate, but Sony says that it won’t ever shoehorn the contentious mini-payments into its games. Speaking with GameSpot, software product development head Scott Rohde coolly claimed that the company will only employ the real world purchases where it makes sense – and even then...

What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 29

Short and sweet

Stop the world and let us get off, because everyone at Push Square towers is pretty pooped this weekend.

Is Sleeping Dogs Bringing Upgraded Kung Fu Fighting to the PS4?

No Wei

If a recent listing on online UK retailer ShopTo is anything to go by, an upgraded port of Sleeping Dogs may be on the way for PlayStation 4. The online store has the title touted to launch on 21st November this year, so if it is the real deal, we'll likely be hearing about it in the coming weeks. In truth, we think the open world epic is the...

Push Square's E3 2014 PlayStation Game of the Show - No Man's Sky

Sky's the limit

No Man’s Sky is not a reality television contestant, but it would make a darn good one if it was. Anyone that’s ever watched the X-Factor or America’s Got Talent will know that media mogul Simon Cowell adores a good ‘rags to riches’ story from time to time, and Hello Games’ ambitious sci-fi escapade is a shining example...

Is Final Fantasy Type-0 HD Further into Production Than We Think?

Before or after The Last Guardian?

The legend of Final Fantasy Type-0 HD's localisation stretches as far back as the Japanese release, following the rumours that it had been fully translated and dubbed. Two years later, with the announcement of the PlayStation 4 remake of the PlayStation Portable exclusive, it turns out that they were true. Since...

E3 2014: Why Do PlayStation 4 Games Keep Getting Delayed?

Why Do PlayStation 4 Games Keep Getting Delayed?

Shuhei Yoshida speaks

Back when Sony announced the PlayStation 4, the platform holder declared that the system would offer an easy environment for developers to make games. Marble Madness maker Mark Cerny, who worked as the lead architect on the next-gen super machine, even touched upon the console’s ‘Time to Triangle’, demonstrating how...

What Does E3 2014 Tell Us About the Future of the PlayStation Vita?

Handheld hysteria

Ask a non-gamer to yawn through Sony’s meaty E3 2014 press conference, and they’ll probably come away with the assumption that the Japanese giant is a single console manufacturer. Much like Microsoft before it, the PlayStation 3 barely registered as a blip during its media briefing, and the PlayStation Vita only obtained a...

Fight Alongside Your Favourite Characters in Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment

Immerse yourself

When it was announced that Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment was being released for the PS Vita this summer, the reveal lacked one major detail in particular, and that was the title's storyline.

Free-to-Play MMORPG Kingdoms Under Fire II Brings Insanely Huge Battles to PS4

Begin the march

Massive multilayer online games — or MMOs — often create something of a predicament with the average gamer. Titles like Final Fantasy XIV Online: A Realm Reborn offer robust and polished experiences, but the thought of a monthly subscription fee is usually enough to turn many would-be adventures away. With the advent of the...

This Project Morpheus Minigame May Sell You on PS4's Virtual Reality Headset

Cool boarders

Sony revealed during its E3 2014 press conference that it would have a couple of new Project Morpheus demos on display at its booth, and one of them is called Street Luge. A relatively simple idea, the title sees you lying back on a reclined chair and steering a sled down a busy road. The action takes place from a first-person...
