When the Heck Is PS4 Firmware Update 2.00 Deploying?

Soon, it seems

In reality, it hasn’t been that long since the PlayStation 4’s hotly anticipated 2.00 firmware update was announced – but that hasn’t stopped us from yearning at the prospect of the functionality enhancing digital download. Fortunately, platform holder Sony stresses that it’s not far away now, so you won’t have too much...

Ubisoft Insists That Assassin's Creed Unity Hasn't Been Scaled Back on PS4

Res Misérables

Ubisoft has attempted to still the unrest caused by yesterday’s French Resolution. Some slightly misjudged comments by senior producer Vincent Pontbriand suggested that the publisher had scaled back the PlayStation 4 version of Assassin’s Creed Unity in order to match the specifications of the Xbox One release, but a spokesperson...

Yes! PSone Title Vib Ribbon Is Rockin' and Rollin' onto the PS Store

Fashionably late

Remember when, for a few fleeting seconds, it seemed like new SCEA president Shawn Layden was going to say something interesting during Sony’s big E3 press conference this year? The animated executive seemed to segue into a segment about legendary PSone release Vib Ribbon – only to drop the title as quickly as he touched upon...

Ambitious racer spending a few extra weeks in the workshop

Ubisoft will be taking a little extra time to tinker with its ambitious open world racing release The Crew, as the title has taken a detour into December. The constantly connected ‘CaRPG’ had originally been set to take to the track on 11th November, but will now hit the road on 2nd...

Ubisoft Locks Assassin's Creed Unity's PS4 Resolution to Avoid Debates

Gulp

Either someone at Ubisoft has said something very silly, or there’s some seriously shady stuff going on behind the scenes. Those that have been following the console industry closely over the past year or so will be aware that the PlayStation 4 has showed a significant technical lead over its closest competitor the Xbox One – and that’s...

Sevastopol survivor

As anyone that’s been chased by an eight foot alien will attest, stayin’ alive ain’t as easy as the Bee Gees once made it sound. However, we’ve been sharpening up our stealth skills in Alien: Isolation on the PlayStation 4 of late, and we’ve got some tips to help you to stay safe on the abandoned Sevastopol space...

Listen to Us Discuss the PS4's Biggest Upcoming Games

Pod thing

One of the biggest requests for Push Square both internally and externally is some kind of podcast, but it’s been on the backburner for some time now. However, at EGX London last week, we decided to give the idea a go, in order to catalogue both our experiences on the show floor – and also see if the concept would actually, y'know,...

Weirdness: This Minecraft Remake of P.T. is Almost as Scary as The Original

This Minecraft Remake of P.T. is Almost as Scary as The Original

Block party

It was only a matter of time before a crafty fan remade Hideo Kojima's harrowing P.T. demo in Minecraft, and, as usual, the enterprising community has outdone itself. All of your favourite moments are represented here: the famous looping hallway, the embarrassingly dirty bathroom, and, of course, the lingering sense that downloading this...

Neon pie

We’re teetering on the precipice of gameageddon. Our super secret review document is filled with titles, reviewers have been assigned, and Push Square Towers is awash with complaints regarding the length of certain releases. Anybody would think that we’d entered the third circle of Hell or something. Still, with such animation behind...

DriveClub, Alien: Isolation, NBA 2K15, PlayStation Plus Freebies

It's full of stars

PlayStation Store updates can be dreadfully disappointing affairs. You wait all week for them to come around, only to find that there’s nothing in the lineup that you want to buy. We’re confident that that won’t be the case this coming Tuesday, however, as Sony has compiled one of the most exciting software rosters in...

Yes, You Can Extend Paul Phoenix's Hair in Tekken 7 on PS4

Hair we go

Tekken 7 is still some way away from being released on the PlayStation 4, but Bandai Namco is currently location testing the arcade version around Japan. This pre-release strategy is often employed in the East, as a means for publishers to market their upcoming titles – and also get important feedback on balancing issues and more...

Over and out of the race

We wished that we could pad out slow news days with pictures of kittens chasing their tails, but unfortunately the company directors may have something to say about that. Fortunately, we can fill out the evening with DriveClub clips, like the one embedded below. Thank you Evolution Studios for giving us something to write...

There’s a good chance that you’re reading this website because you love PlayStation, but let’s not pretend that there aren’t dozens of other snazzy gizmos out there. The market is practically flooded with nifty appliances these days, which perhaps makes the PlayStation 4’s success at the T3 Awards all...

Kick the Hobbit with This Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor PS4 Trailer

Looking sharp

Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor is like the little engine that could. While we were certainly excited for the title, its extremely positive reviews have sealed it as one of the must-have games in the already packed month of October. And in order to remind everyone of its existence, developer Monolith Productions has released a nifty new...

Our Three Favourite PS4 Games from EGX London 2014

The final word

The ballot papers have been collected, counted, rigged, re-counted, and revealed – and Alien: Isolation has won this year’s official EGX London 2014 game of the show. We’re contrary kittens here at Push Square, though, and we reckon that the British gaming public’s got its favourite PlayStation 4 titles in the wrong order...

Alien: Isolation PS4 Reviews Hold Their Breath

Don't make a sound

You’d think that it would be easy to make a game about eight-foot aliens stomping around spaceships. However, if the abysmal Aliens: Colonial Marines taught us anything, it’s that it’s not so straightforward at all. Fortunately, the Creative Assembly has been quietly attempting to write a few wrongs behind its...

Squeezing the Cheeks of LittleBigPlanet 3 on PS4

Sack joy

Like a cuddly toy that’s slipped down the side of a forgetful infant’s bed, there’s a sense that LittleBigPlanet 3 is getting overlooked. Caught among the onslaught of holiday releases, Sackboy and his band of burlap buddies have failed to catch the interest of the robotic hordes fawning over annualised outings such as Call of Duty:...

14GB Will Be Enough to Contain the Cuteness of PS4 Exclusive LittleBigPlanet 3

PS Move compatibility also on the cards

A little like DriveClub, the upcoming LittleBigPlanet 3 is one of those titles that we want nestling on our PlayStation 4’s hard drive. Sony’s exclusive lineup this year seems built around pickup and play experiences that will have long legs, and Sackboy’s latest errand looks particularly likely to...

PlayStation Home May Live on the PlayStation 4 Yet

Another brick in the wall

PlayStation Home is being boarded up. Sony announced late last week that it will be evicting residents from its ambitious virtual world, and dismantling the servers like an old block of flats. For many of us, it’s an opportunity to point and laugh at the service’s protracted lifespan – but this move is going to...
