PSN Offline for Some as the Weekend Arrives

Down and out

That massive Flash Sale must have overwhelmed Sony's servers, as the PlayStation Network is currently offline. While we're seeing plenty of complaints around the web, not everyone here at Push Square Towers is affected, so hopefully this is a minor hiccup, rather than a full-scale outage.

Sony's Seemingly Forming a Fresh First-Party Studio for Project Morpheus

Time for something completely different

Project Morpheus certainly has plenty of promise, but if it stands any chance of succeeding, it will need Sony's full support. The organisation must provide the peripheral with a steady stream of bespoke software, so it's perhaps a good thing that it's seemingly creating a new first-party studio to do just...

PS4, PS3, Vita Prices Plunge in Fab NA Flash Sale

Everything under a fiver

It's the weekend, so we're guessing that you're in the market for some cut price PlayStation Network software. Sony's back in North America with another quite frankly outrageous Flash Sale, spanning the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and Vita.

How Does The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Look and Run on PS4?

Witching business

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has been bathed in critical acclaim over the last week or so, but one question that continues to pop up around the web concerns the game's performance on the PlayStation 4.

There Aren't Enough The Witcher 3 PS4 Videos on This Site, So Have Another One

Broken record

Associate editor Robert Ramsey's usual The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt video posting services have been temporarily revoked while he actually, y'know, plays the game for your critical consumption. This leaves fussy fantasy game hater Sammy Barker to regurgitate yet another YouTube video from the release and post it for your perusal pleasure...

DiRT Rally May Yet Get Stuck in the PS4's Mud

"It's something we should be looking to do"

Codemasters, the firm best known for racing games such as GRID, is a bit of a British institution, so it's positively peculiar that it's still yet to release a PlayStation 4 title. The company will be hitting the new-gen starting grid with F1 2015 a little later this year, but the organisation also seems...

Final Fantasy X's 'To Zanarkand' PS4 Theme Is One of the Best on PSN

Insert soft piano music here

An iconic piece of Final Fantasy history, Final Fantasy X's opening cutscene still sends shivers up the spines of many, over a decade after its initial release.

April 2015 NPD: PS4 Slumps to Shock Defeat

Xbox One brushes PS4 aside

Well, well, well – this is unexpected. We reported on the PlayStation 3's failure to top the NPD charts for many years, but we've already fallen into a pattern where we expect the PlayStation 4 to lead. However, the numbers coming out of the United States for April 2015 may wake both Sony and ourselves up, as the Xbox...

The Witcher 3's Latest and Possibly Last Trailer Is a Bit of a Masterpiece

By the light of the moon

We rag on CG trailers as much as anyone else, but we can usually forgive them when they've been preceded by more gameplay than our brain capacity can handle. As such, we're not too fussed that CD Projekt Red's let The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt's new CG trailer loose. Plus, it's pretty bloody good. In truth, the video actually...
