Yu Suzuki Wants Physical Shenmue III PS4 Discs

Where is the mirror?

Shenmue III could yet get a Blu-ray release on the PlayStation 4, as Yu Suzuki explained during a Twitch livestream overnight that he's eager to make it happen. The veteran developer told fans that he's currently considering ways to get the disc produced, and pleaded patience while he figures out the final details. We reckon...

Talking Point: What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 73

What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 73

SW19

It's been a much tamer week here at Push Square Towers after the intensity of E3 2015. For starters, Robert Ramsey's taken some well deserved days off, which means that we haven't had to hear about the latest Samurai Warriors every six or so minutes. Moreover, there's been a real dearth of big news following last week's tidal wave. Let's hope...

Batman: Arkham Knight's PS4 Leaderboards Are Busted

Gotham's not-so greatest

Batman: Arkham Knight's probably not the first game that you'd think of when it comes to well integrated leaderboards, but we're actually quite fond of the way in which the title keeps track of both your progress through the campaign and your performance in AR Missions. At least we were, until they went offline. Like many,...

PS4, PS3 Versions of Grand Theft Auto V Get a New Radio Station in July

The Lab

The Lab, a Grand Theft Auto V radio station that was PC exclusive, is coming to consoles next month. It consists of songs from the game's original soundtrack, but remixed and repurposed by a slew of musicians from a variety of genres. Basically, if you've ever wanted Freddie Gibbs and Wavves on the same station, this is for you. We're big...

Cyberpunk Bartender Action Finds PS Vita at the Bottom of a Bottle

Jar time

There are some games that are easy to describe – and others that aren't. VA-11 HALL-A: Cyberpunk Bartender Action is one of those titles that's so downright bizarre that we don't even know where to start – but we'll try anyway. A self-described "booze-'em-up", this baffling PlayStation Vita title from Sukeban Games marries waifus with...

PS4, PS3, Vita EU Discounts Discover What's Big in Japan

Cut-price content

A ton of top PlayStation titles have had their digital prices slashed in Europe this week, as Sony's online plaza aims to explore what's big in Japan. Fans of the Dynasty Warriors franchise will be particularly well serviced, as a handful of titles have been cut down to size on the PlayStation 4. A shout must also go to the...

Shenmue III Stretch Goals Extend PS4, PC Sequel's Scope

Betting games, battle systems, and more

After the initial burst of enthusiasm following its announcement, Shenmue III's long awaited Kickstarter campaign has slowed right down. In order for the title to reach its ultimate $10 million target, there's going to need to be another huge surge of interest – and creator Yu Suzuki and crew are...

PS4 Players Are Demanding a Better PSN

#BetterPSN

Ah, you can't beat a bit of people power, can you? For whatever reason, PlayStation 4 owners have started to create a Twitter campaign centred on the idea of a better PlayStation Network – or, er, #BetterPSN if you're into all of that social media nonsense. It's not entirely clear what prompted the movement, but there have been some...

Whispering Willows Has an Out-of-Body Experience on PS4, Vita

Look upon thyself

E3 2015 didn't bring as many of the smaller games as this author was expecting, but we suppose that that's because new ones are announced literally everyday on the PlayStation Blog. Whispering Willows is one such title, which is set to debut on the PlayStation 4 and Vita from 30th June in Europe and North America. It'll launch...

SEGA, Sony Knee Deep in Yakuza 5 Localisation for PS3

Punch out

Yakuza 5 is due out later this year for the PlayStation 3, a whopping three years after its release in Japan. And it looks like Third-Party Productions chief Gio Corsi is getting ready to kickstart the long overdue localisation's marketing campaign, as a new interview has been uploaded to the PlayStation Blog outlining a little more...

News: PlayStation Vita Passes 4 Million Units in Japan

PlayStation Vita Passes 4 Million Units in Japan

Small consolation

There's been very little cause for PlayStation Vita owners to celebrate of late, but Sony's diminutive device has just hit a major milestone in Japan, crossing the 4,000,000 unit threshold. This number takes into account both handheld and PlayStation TV sales, but seeing as they're both built upon the same hardware, we reckon...

Don't Forget to Download Your Free The Witcher 3 DLC on PS4

Available now in Europe and North America

Let's be honest, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt's free DLC hasn't been worth shouting about – but it has kept CD Projekt Red's role-playing game in the news cycle every week. And we're going to play right into the Polish developer's hands by reminding you that there's a new batch of complimentary content...

Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5 Will Let You Create and Share Your Own Parks

Will support up to 20 skaters at once

Robomodo's certainly talking a great game with Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5, so it's a bit of a shame that the title currently looks so low-budget. Due out from 29th September on the PlayStation 4 – a PlayStation 3 version is due out at some point thereafter – the release aims to plot a return to the classic...

Shenmue III Targets $10 Million as Funding Is Clarified

Sony won't see a cent

There's been a bit of a backlash surrounding Shenmue III since its announcement last week, which has been a bit disappointing to see. Ever wondered why we can't have nice things? Well, it's because there'll always be some spiteful people out there looking to scupper them – and Yu Suzuki's crowd funding campaign has been the...
