News: Looks Like Korea's Getting Some PS4 Greatest Hits

Looks Like Korea's Getting Some PS4 Greatest Hits

The essentials

We suppose that the PlayStation 4's just about old enough to command a Greatest Hits label, and it looks like that's exactly what it'll be getting in South Korea from 22nd April. We can't read the region's moon language, so we apologise for any errors in advance, but it seems like the cut-price releases will retail for ₩27,800...

DLC Review: Dragon Ball XenoVerse's GT Pack 2 Unleashes the Evil

Dragon Ball XenoVerse's GT Pack 2 Unleashes the Evil

Hot and cold

Dragon Ball XenoVerse's second slice of DLC carries on the Dragon Ball GT theme from the first pack, adding two new characters from the aforementioned animated series. As with GT Pack 1, however, GT Pack 2 isn't a simple character add-on – it's another bundle of XenoVerse content that expands the existing release with new skills,...

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Ascends with New PS4, PS3 DLC from 30th April

The big grapple

Microsoft's period of timed exclusivity is almost over, which means that Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare's second expansion, Ascendance, will deploy imminently on the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3. Due out on 30th April, the pack includes four new maps, the Infection episode of the spin-off Exo Zombies co-op sub-saga, and a brand...

Meet the Man Who's Helping Students Publish PS4, Vita Games

"I want my students to be the next big indie developers"

With the emphasis on exclusives, marketing deals, and services, we rarely take the time to think about gaming at a grass roots level. Trailers and reviews command the majority of our traffic here at Push Square, so it's perhaps easy to overlook all of the effort that goes into schools and...

What Do You Mean You've Never Played... Transformers: War for Cybertron?

Cullen your name

Video games are quite the unpredictable bunch. Dark horses like Batman: Arkham Asylum and Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor will come out of nowhere as surprising Game of the Year contenders, while shocking letdowns such as Assassin's Creed Unity and The Order: 1886 will leave gamers pondering where their promise and potential went...

Store Update: 15th April 2015 (Europe)

15th April 2015 (Europe)

Meet your murderer

Consider this a catch-up edition of the weekly European PlayStation Store update. Yes, the likes of Mortal Kombat X may be headlining, but it's long overdue titles such as Costume Quest 2 and Home that caught our eye. Both of these released in North America many months ago, so it's nice to see SCEE finally back up to date. Now,...

News: Japanese Sales Charts: PS4 Endures Another Hefty Slip, But Still Comes Out on Top

Japanese Sales Charts: PS4 Endures Another Hefty Slip, But Still Comes Out on Top

Technically, at least

Yep, it's really happening: the PlayStation 4's recent dominance of the Japanese hardware charts is without doubt coming to a close, but even a weighty drop of about 10,000 sales hasn't been enough to knock Sony's home console off the top spot. You can compare last week's Japanese charts through here Selling through 17,855...

You Can Finally Watch Taylor Swift Videos on PS4, PS3

Everything has changed

Spotify may be missing Taylor Swift's back catalogue, but Vevo will fill that Blank Space. The music video streaming service – owned and maintained by Sony Music Entertainment, Universal Music Group, and Google – will be launching on the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 in Europe later today, bringing its massive library...

PS4 Releases Reduced in Latest Round of EU Sales

Cash back

You like LEGO, right? Of course you do – only Mega Bloks fanboys shun the famous Danish bricks. Assuming that you don't fall into the latter category, then you're going to have a field day over the next couple of weeks, as practically every entry in Traveller's Tales' popular series is up for sale. That includes LEGO Batman 3: Beyond...

Metro Redux Shows a Thirst for the Apocalypse with Over 1.5 Million Copies Sold

Take that, mutants

A collection that contains remastered versions of both Metro: 2033 and Metro Last Light, Metro Redux is a pretty meaty package, and we'd argue one of the best shooters on the PlayStation 4. It's quite nice, then, that the post-apocalyptic romp has sold over 1.5 million copies worldwide. The news comes via Deep Silver, and,...

14th April 2015 (North America)

Late to the party

We may be late posting the North American PlayStation Store update – but that doesn't mean that the content's changed. Your interest in this article may have, however, so we're pondering whether it's worth putting any effort into this pre-amble at all. In fact, we could probably post this video of a slipping Buckingham Palace...

Screenshots and a Teaser Trailer Give You a Glimpse of Star Ocean 5 on PS4

Look to the stars

We knew that it wouldn't be long before Square Enix started running the media tap with regards to Star Ocean 5: Integrity and Faithlessness. As such, the publisher's released two pretty looking screenshots and one teaser trailer for the upcoming sci-fi role-playing game. The pictures mostly give an idea of what sort of...

Even Xbox's Boss Is Impressed by Bloodborne's PS4 Sales

Hunter's dream

In a move that's been no way orchestrated by Microsoft's marketing team, Phil 'One of Us' Spencer has congratulated Sony on the success of Bloodborne, which has already surpassed one million sales globally. To be fair to the Xbox chief, he did at least acknowledge that people would raise eyebrows at the message – so there's that...

Costume Quest 2 Gets a Timely European Release Date

A trick and a treat

After spending, oh, just the eight months in SCEE quality assurance hell, Costume Quest 2 is finally ready for, er, Hallowe'en. The game's already available on the PlayStation 3 in Europe, but missed the Holiday of Horrors by some margin on the PlayStation 4. There's no word as to why the game was delayed – maybe it couldn't...

First Impressions: Taking One on the Chin in Mortal Kombat X on PS4

Taking One on the Chin in Mortal Kombat X on PS4

You make me larrrf, Kitana

Mortal Kombat X is genuinely funny. You can bombard us with Johnny Cage-esque green orbs in the comments all you like, but there's no way that developer NetherRealm built this game with a straight face. And that's a good thing. The amount of tomfoolery on display at times is outrageous – and it's bettered only by the...

Destiny's New Patch Detailed, Gets Suspend and Resume Improvements on PS4

That'll do nicely

You can say what you like about Destiny, but Bungie's been quite impressive with its post-release support. The title's next big patch will soon be live, and the developer's detailed exactly what's going to be in it. In addition to being able to wear helmets in the Tower and the ability to tweak colour blind and audio settings,...

News: Bloodborne Patch Will Bust Up Bad Load Times Soon

Bloodborne Patch Will Bust Up Bad Load Times Soon

Various other fixes pledged

If there's one problem that we'd point at Bloodborne – aside from those dreaded Defiled Chalice dungeons – it's the long load times. Sure, you can pretty much run from one end of the world to the other without ever seeing a stumbling block – grotesque enemies aside – but having to travel to and from the Hunter's...

Watch As We Recap March 2015's Best PS4, PS3, and Vita Games

The good blood

And now that Bloodborne's out of the way, it's back to your regularly scheduled slice of Game of the Month video goodness – in which your humble host talks Bloodborne. We let the good blood guide us this time out, as we get to the bottom of the PlayStation 4 exclusive's plot – and compare it to election debates. Both make about as...

Bloodborne Sales Are Off to a Bloody Good Start

Blood echoes retrieved

Can you smell the iron? According to Sony, PlayStation 4 exclusive Bloodborne had sold over one million copies by the 5th April, which means that the brilliantly gothic adventure hit that sales milestone after just over a week on the market. To put this feat into perspective, it took Dark Souls II, a multiplatform title,...

That Terrible Teaser Trailer? That Is Guitar Hero Live

Launching on PS4, PS3 this year

Well, this is all unexpected, isn't it? Activision released an atrocious teaser trailer for Guitar Hero Live yesterday, the next entry in its dormant shredding series – but we thought that it was just a mood piece. Actually, it turns out that British developer FreeStyleGames is making a full motion video game –...

Sony's Showing Shadow of the Beast in London Today

Alienation also on display

One game that we often get queried about here on Push Square is Shadow of the Beast: has it been cancelled? Heavy Spectrum's take on Psygnosis' classic is hotly anticipated among some of our older readers, and for good reason – the original Reflections releases were among some of the most visually impressive for their...
