  • Poll Is Final Fantasy IX the Best Final Fantasy?

    The one and only

    With Final Fantasy IX's PlayStation 4 port making waves earlier this week when it was announced and released all within the space of a few hours, now's as good a time as any to roll out this inevitable poll. Originally launching on the PSone at the very end of the console's life, Final Fantasy IX is considered by many to be the...

  • Poll Are You Looking Forward to Tokyo Game Show 2017?

    Beast of the East

    If you're anything like this particular author, then you love your Japanese games. For as long as we dare to remember, the Tokyo Game Show -- essentially Japan's version of E3 -- has been a good indicator of how the nation's video game industry is doing. From Sony to Koei Tecmo and Square Enix to Bandi Namco, all the big...

  • Game of the Month Top 4 PlayStation Games of August 2017

    Treasures, hedgehogs, paranoia, and a lot of reading

    Wowza, August was one stacked month for PlayStation gaming. We reviewed more games last month than any other month in 2017 so far, and there were actually so many quality releases that our nominees list for Game of the Month was the biggest we've ever had. Okay, so some titles didn't exactly prove...

  • Poll Are You Enjoying Destiny 2?

    Super sequel or disappointment?

    You knew this poll was coming. Destiny 2 has been out for a couple of days now, and although that's not really enough time to form a complete opinion of the game, we'd like to know what you think of it so far. Is it everything that you hoped it would be, or has it been a disappointing experience? As far as we're...

  • Feature The Promising PS4 Games of September 2017

    Another big one

    Now that we're a decent way into the second half of 2017, we find ourselves cautiously looking towards the holiday rush. But before we get into the big three of October, November, and December, we first have to stop and admire the promising games of September. As with August, there's a lot to choose from next month, as evidenced by...

  • Poll Are You Loving Uncharted: The Lost Legacy on PS4?

    Indian summer

    Despite being developed in less than a year, we believe there’s a case to be made for Uncharted: The Lost Legacy being the best in the series. While the stakes aren’t anywhere near as high as they were in Nathan Drake’s last ever adventure, there’s no doubt that Chloe and Nadine’s outing has a much better mix of mechanics –...

  • Poll Should Sony Allow EA Access on PS4?

    Changing minds

    Back in 2014 when EA Access was announced, Sony said that it didn’t think the service represented value for money. An annual subscription like PlayStation Plus, the optional membership includes admission to a vault of games which can be downloaded and played as part of a subscription, and also unlocks early access to new rel

  • Poll Is Persona 5 the Best Persona Game?

    Now it's personal

    Now that Persona 5 has been out for a good few months, we thought it was about time to ask the ultimate question: is it the best Persona game? Atlus' latest entry in the role-playing series was met with universal critical acclaim and it's safe to say that gamers went absolutely nuts for it. It quickly became the best selling title...

  • Poll 1 Year Later, What Are Your Thoughts on No Man's Sky?

    Sky's the limit

    No Man's Sky first launched one year ago yesterday. Or the day before, depending on your region. After years of hype, the sci-fi exploration title was met with a rather lukewarm reception. Reviews were mixed, as was player opinion, but the game did secure a hardcore following. For a while, developer Hello Games went dark, but it...

  • Feature The Promising PS4 Games of August 2017

    Summer never ends

    Last week, the editorial staff here at Push Square sat down to work out our coverage schedule for August, and as we ran through the month's release dates, we couldn't quite believe our eyes. Usually, August is a relatively quiet summer month with most publishers gearing up for September and beyond. This year, however, August...

  • Poll Are You a Fan of More Games Releasing in the Summer?

    Summer lovin'

    Click through here and take a look at the August release schedule if you haven't already. It's ridiculous. But it wasn't always like this. Not all that long ago, the summer months used to be a guaranteed quiet period. The summer gaming drought was a very real thing, with most publishers opting to launch their titles either in...

  • Game of the Month Top 4 PlayStation Games of July 2017

    Judges, trials, and hot stuff

    This summer has just flown by, hasn't it? We're now sitting pretty in August, but we can't possibly forget the gaming goodness that came our way last month. July certainly wasn't the strongest period we've ever seen, but our internal staff vote to decide our Game of the Month was still a close call. Feast your eyes...

  • Poll Should Sony Make a PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale Sequel?

    And what kind of game should it be?

    Thanks to some flaky fakes, PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale is back in the headlines. There's no sign that Sony's going to revive the mascot mash-up on the PlayStation 4, but the renewed interest invites an interesting question: should it? And if your answer to that is a resounding yes, then what direction...

  • Feature The Promising PS4 Games of May 2017

    Maybe, maybe not

    Hmmmm. On paper, May doesn't look like an especially amazing month, but with the way 2017 is going so far, we wouldn't be surprised to see it offer up a few surprise hits. As always, we're here to let you know what we think are the most promising PlayStation 4 titles of next month, so let's dive straight in, shall we? PREY:...

  • Poll Are You Happy with May 2017's PlayStation Plus Games?

    Is it really such a strong month?

    With news having slowed to a crawl as the industry preps itself ahead of E3 this summer, it's only fitting that we end the week with a quick and easy poll. It's been a while since we polled you lot on the quality of PlayStation Plus and its 'free' games, but we reckon May's selection is actually one of the more...

  • Poll Should Sony Be Looking to Add Refunds to PSN?

    Cash back

    This is an article that we've had on the backburner for a while now, but Microsoft has somewhat forced our hand. One of the big features on Steam for quite a while has been its ability to allow you to get a refund on digital purchases. The terms of service state that, as long as you don't abuse the system, you're eligible to request a...

  • Poll Has Persona 5 Been Worth the Hype?

    Now it's personal

    Persona 5 launched just a few days ago, so naturally, we want to know what you lot think of it so far. Atlus' role-playing game is currently the third highest rated PlayStation 4 release ever on Metacritic, sitting at a supremely impressive metascore of 94. According to the press, the years upon years of waiting have been well...

  • Feature The Promising PS4 Games of April 2017

    Nothing foolish about it

    We've said it multiple times but we'll go ahead and say it again: the PlayStation 4 has had a seriously good year so far. Sure, there have been one or two disappointments, but for the most part, we've been hit with a tidal wave of quality current-gen gaming. April may not have be bursting at the seams with blockbusters, but...

  • Game of the Month Top 4 PlayStation Games of March 2017

    Robot dinosaurs, giant demons, more robots, and truth bullets

    March has been another great month for Sony's current-gen console, a machine which seems to be keen on completely stripping us of our free time. Back at the end of February, we were forced to point out that PlayStation 4 exclusive Horizon: Zero Dawn would be, if anything, featured in this...

  • Poll Are You Enjoying Mass Effect: Andromeda?

    Star wars

    Another Friday, another poll. With Mass Effect: Andromeda now sitting comfortably inside many a PlayStation 4, it's time for us to ask what you think of the game so far. From what we can tell, opinions seem to be very split on BioWare's latest release; some veteran fans love it, others think it's a huge disappointment, and we've seen...

  • Poll Has the Mass Effect: Andromeda Backlash Put You Off the Game?

    Deep space, deeper trouble?

    This has really blown up, hasn't it? Arguably the biggest story of the week, Mass Effect: Andromeda has some rather terrible animations - we're talking worse than usual BioWare animations kind of terrible. Naturally, the gaming sphere is currently flooded with gifs, videos, and clips of the game's shoddy human faces and...

  • Poll What Are Your Thoughts on PS4 Firmware Update 4.50?

    Beast mode engaged

    PlayStation 4 firmware update 4.50 has been out for a couple of days now, and the general consensus around the 'net seems to be that it's a solid improvement. We could easily start ranting on about what features are included and all that, but it'd be much easier to simply direct you through to our full round up, which you can find...

  • Feature The Promising PS4 Games of March 2017

    Another big month incoming

    A fantastic start to the year for the PlayStation 4 looks set to continue in March, which, on the face of it, looks like another really strong month for Sony's current-gen console. There's a good variety of titles on offer, from blockbusters to niche Japanese collections, and there are even a few promising little digital...

  • Poll Will Your PS4 Gather Dust Now the Nintendo Switch Is Out?

    Will you be switching things up?

    You may not have noticed, but the Nintendo Switch is dominating gaming headlines right now, to the point where non-Ninty news is especially hard to come by. Seeing as it's Friday, though, we thought that we'd crack out another community poll - this time to try and get a handle on what the PlayStation faithful think...

    Brave new world

    The reviews are out, the scores are in, and the launch trailer is here; it's almost time to get your sweaty hands on Horizon: Zero Dawn - or is it?

    Crashtastic or Crash and burn?

    In case you missed yesterday's news, Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy now has a confirmed release date; it's set to launch for PlayStation 4 on the 30th June. Now that we know when the remade package is coming, though, we've started questioning just how excited we are for the return of everyone's favourite furry mascot...

  • Poll Are You Enjoying Nioh on PS4?

    Go Team Ninja go

    Nioh launched earlier this week, and after a pre-release period consisting of an alpha, a beta, and a playable trial, expectations were set reasonably high for the PlayStation 4 exclusive. The good news is that the internet seems to like it; the title has received a lot of praise from critics, and there's plenty of positive buzz...

  • Poll Has PS4 Pro's Boost Mode Tempted You to Upgrade?

    Unleash the Beast

    Sony tried its best to cover up PlayStation 4 Pro's new Boost Mode, but the Internet never sleeps on exciting features and it leaked. The added option essentially unlocks the supercharged system's additional horsepower for use in unpatched games, resulting in small but noticeable performance upgrades. While an NDA means that we c

  • Poll What PS4 Firmware 4.50 Feature are You Most Looking Forward To?

    A lot to choose from

  • Poll Has Your PS4 Started to Run a Little Slower Lately?

    The great lag epidemic

    Here's a thing: is your PlayStation 4 running slower than you remember? We're not talking about a crippling sluggishness – you may want to contact Sony about that – but a subtle lag when you're browsing through the home menu or trying to boot apps? It's never been 100 per cent perfect, but we've definitely noticed a few...

  • Feature The Promising PS4 Games of February 2017

    Who needs Valentine's Day?

    Following on from a truly beastly January, February on PlayStation 4 is looking suitably strong for Sony's system.

Nioh (PS4 Exclusive): Release date:...

  • Poll Should Resident Evil Remain First-Person for Now?

    The million dollar question

    For many ardent fans, Resident Evil 7: Biohazard's switch to first-person proved a bigger fright than the game itself – but as reviews proved this week, the change works better than it has any right to. Even those that enjoyed Resident Evil 6 would struggle to argue against the staleness that Capcom's flagship franchise...

The long awaited sci-fi sequel lands on PlayStation 4 on the 21st March in North America and the 23rd March in Europe - but are you hyped for BioWare's big release? Our problem with Andromeda is that, up to this point, it's...

  • Poll What Was Your Favourite PlayStation Game of 2016?

    The choice is yours

    We've already picked Uncharted 4: A Thief's End as our Game of the Year. Our awesome forum members also picked Naughty Dog's opus as Game of the Year. But now, as we attempt to pad out our content schedule one more time before work begins in earnest again,

  • Feature The Promising PS4 Games of January 2017

    Starting right

    Holy cow it's 2017 already - where the heck did that year go? Bemusement aside, we're now facing 12 more months of games, and boy does this year look packed from where we're sitting. January may not be flaunting too many blockbusters on PlayStation 4, but if you're a fan of Japan's output, you're going to have to keep a very close...

  • Poll Who Is the Best Final Fantasy Protagonist?

    Let's settle this

    You know, we had concerns about Noctis as a likeable character before Final Fantasy XV released, but now that we've finished the game and had time to think about it, we reckon Noct's actually a pretty good protagonist. But how does the immaculately groomed lead stand up to the heroes of Final Fantasy's past? Well, that's what...

  • Feature What Do Longtime Final Fantasy Fans Think of Final Fantasy XV?

    And how highly do they rate it?

    Now that Final Fantasy XV has been out for a couple of weeks, we here at Push Square have had some time to gather our thoughts on Square Enix's long-awaited blockbuster. By most accounts, the game's a good one - we gave it an 8/10 in our review - but how do longtime fans of the series feel about Noctis and the...

  • Poll Does The Last Guardian Dazzle After a Decade?

    Believe in a Trico

    Can you believe it? The Last Guardian, after a torturous spate of delays, is finally available globally.

But does it still dazzle after a decade of development? We...

  • Poll Decide Push Square's PSX 2016 Game of the Show

    The best of a good bunch

    There were a lot of games shown during Sony's PlayStation Experience 2016 press conference.

  • Poll Take the Push Square PlayStation Experience 2016 Community Quiz

    Place your bets

    Sony's bringing the PlayStation Meeting back for another year, as the Japanese company prepares its fan-driven event and stage presentation for the 3rd December. Always a tough show to predict, the PlayStation Experience isn't quite E3, so we tend to expect more niche titles and specific announcements to hog the limelight rather...

  • Poll Are You Buying Final Fantasy XV?

    In with the boys

    Final Fantasy XV launches tomorrow on PlayStation 4, which, when you stop and think about it, is a bit mental.

Has the ridiculous...

  • Poll What Do You Think of Watch Dogs 2 on PS4?

    Top dog or dog turd?

    Watch Dogs 2 is out on PlayStation 4, and according to our very own Matt Adcock, it's supposed to be pretty darn good. The sandbox sequel is a lot more colourful than its rather dreary predecessor, with Ubisoft trying extra hard to pump some character into proceedings. But now that we've had our say - review score pending - we...

    Going Pro

    Predictable Friday polls are one of our specialities at this point, so here we are once again, asking you lot to share your opinion on the latest happenings from the PlayStation Nation .

    Is it hot stuff?

    Ah, trusty old Destiny - a game that's pretty much the perfect fodder for a Friday poll such as this. The shooter's latest expansion, Rise of Iron, launched earlier this week on PlayStation 4, and its brand new six-player Raid is releasing later today. Judging by the amount of buzz that the DLC has generated around the 'net, it's...

  • Poll Should the PS4 Pro Have a UHD Blu-ray Player?

    A moment of clarity

    Sony took a bath on the PlayStation 3 just to get Blu-ray into as many homes as possible, so it's strange to see the company ignore the fledgling Ultra High-Definition Blu-ray format a decade later. Times have changed since the turbulent days of 2006, of course: streaming is, for many, their primary means of consuming media now...

Still, we can at least push...

    You knew this was coming

    Aaaaand here we are. It's been roughly two days since the PlayStation 4 Pro was announced at Sony's PlayStation Meeting, and it's reasonably safe to say that opinions are divided. For some, the Pro is exactly what they expected, while others are a little disappointed that it isn't something more. Naturally, this means that...
