PS4 Sequel Rise of the Tomb Raider Is Taking Motion Capture to the Next Level

Drake beware

We thoroughly enjoyed Crystal Dynamics’ tense Tomb Raider reboot on both the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4, but in many ways it felt like an Uncharted game with a slightly smaller budget. Fortunately, the developer is pulling out all of the stops with Rise of the Tomb Raider, the release’s recently announced sequel, as it’s...

What Does PlayStation Vita Firmware Update 3.18 Do?

As if you need telling

There’ll be no danger of your PlayStation Vita ever tumbling off your coffee table again, as Sony has released a new stability update for the diminutive device. Available right now – and mandatory, we’re afraid – the patch doesn’t appear to change anything about the handheld’s user experience. Speculation...

Something's Coming in Sony's Second Gamescom 2014 Teaser of the Day

An axe to grind

Sony’s in full on hype mode ahead of its Gamescom 2014 press conference next week – it’s just a shame that it’s releasing some pretty poor promotional trailers to lead into the event. Alright, this one isn’t anywhere near as bad as this afternoon’s hypnotherapy session, but two teasers in one day is probably a little bit...

Sony's Gamescom 2014 Teaser Trailers Are Getting Worse

Is this some kind of hypnotherapy?

With the games industry getting ready to descend upon Germany ahead of next week’s Gamescom 2014 convention, Sony is starting to hype up its annual media briefing. A few days ago it deployed a teaser trailer for what appeared to be Until Dawn, but now it’s gone with something a little more vanilla to count down...

Tactical Vita Title Inner City Kids Takes Turn-Based Strategy to the Streets

Pixel perfect

Inner City Kids seems to be the quintessential PlayStation Vita game. Recently announced on the PlayStation Blog, this raucous indie title sees you playing as a group of, erm, inner city kids that must save their slowly disappearing parents from an alien threat. The gameplay itself is your typical turn-based fare. You'll be offered a...

This Senran Kagura Shinovi Versus Trailer Is Not Safe for Work

You've been warned

Marvelous Entertainment’s ridiculously risqué PlayStation Vita action game Senran Kagura Shinovi Versus is bouncing its way to Europe this October. The title – which is essentially a more revealing Dynasty Warriors alternative – includes a ton of characters, online multiplayer, and some of the most inappropriate outfits...

You'll Do More Than Hack 'n' Slash in Shadow Warrior This September

Just wait until you see the fish

With action games becoming dime a dozen, developers really have to make their titles stand out in the difficult video game market these days. Taking guns, samurai swords, and magic while smushing them all up together into a ball of pure madness, however, sounds pretty awesome. Upcoming title Shadow Warrior will...

Sony: We Want to Make PS4 Players Feel Special

All part of being the best place to play

Sony wants you to feel special for selecting the PlayStation 4 over the handful of other systems on the market.

Unsurprisingly, Metal Gear Solid Still Sells Best on PlayStation Platforms

PS4 version of Ground Zeroes triples Xbox One numbers

Sleeping Dogs Is Kung-Fu Kicking PS4 with All of Its DLC

No Wei

Even though it received a whopping 8/10 here at Push Square, Sleeping Dogs arrived on the PlayStation 3 as a Grand Theft Auto underdog. Following its free offering on PlayStation Plus, however, it quickly became a cult hit that many a gamer – including our staff – punched themselves for not discovering earlier. If you're one of those...

Feature: What Went Wrong with PlayStation Mobile?

What Went Wrong with PlayStation Mobile?

Totally immobile

Sony’s smartphone strategy seemed so, well, smart a few years ago. While the PlayStation Vita was flagging, the format holder appeared to have a long-term plan in PlayStation Mobile – a compartmentalised plaza offering semi-curated content on PlayStation-certified platforms. The idea was to step away from the poor quality...

You'll Need to Take Out a Loan to Afford This Hat DLC for The Last of Us

Hats off

Some days video game news runs so thick and fast that the highly trained team of journalistic monkeys here at Push Square Towers can barely keep up with it all. Other days – like when a huge European industry event is in just under a week's time, for instance – there's so little happening that we're forced to cover stories that some...

Whoa, 10 Million People Have Cringed at Borderlands 2's Bad Jokes

Shut your Claptrap

Borderlands 2 is an enjoyable enough game, but let’s not try and pretend that its obnoxious brand of humour is anywhere close to being comical. Annoying characters and even more irritating voice acting aside, though, the title has now shipped over 10 million copies, which means that a significant portion of people have reached...

You'll Need to Find Your Sea Legs for the Darkest Assassin's Creed to Date

Ubisoft announces this year's PS3 outing

It’s a good thing that the protagonist of Assassin’s Creed: Rogue doesn’t have a ship as leaky as Ubisoft, otherwise he’d be living it up in ol’ Davy Jones’ Locker right now. After months of speculation – and a morning of YouTube copyright claims – the French publisher has finally confirmed...

Grand Theft Auto V Is Still Going to Jump Start Your PS4 This Year

Franklin and upfront

With every game under the sun seemingly getting delayed into next year, you may be forgiven for assuming that Rockstar Games’ silence with regards to the PlayStation 4 version of Grand Theft Auto V may speak volumes. Fortunately, as part of its latest financial report, publishing overlord Take Two has reiterated that the...
