  • Talking Point What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 152

    A-WAYP we go

    We may have a new website, but the old favourites remain. WAYP is one of the longest running features here at Push Square, so despite the fancy new framework, we're not changing a damn thing about it. Regular readers should know the drill by now: we reveal our gaming schedule, before handing the microphone to you in the comments section...

  • News US PlayStation Store Flash Sale Plunges Prices on PS4

    PS3 and Vita also join the party

    You may have a new president now, but that ain't stopping Sony from posting some great deals on the US PlayStation Store. The platform holder's launched a pretty tasty January Flash Sale on the American plaza today, with offers spanning everything from Hitman Go ($3.19) through to Lords of the Fallen ($3.99)...

  • Japanese Sales Charts Kingdom Hearts and Danganronpa Race to the Top

    PS4 still king of hardware

    It's taken quite a few weeks, but PlayStation's finally managed to get a couple of titles to the top of the Japanese software charts. The ridiculously named Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue jumped straight into first place with sales of 137,797 copies. Not a huge amount, but certainly a solid opening. Behind...

    The only opinions that matter

We took some time to enjoy Christmas and New Years but now we're back and ready to fill your ears with all the latest and greatest from the land of PlayStation via the Push Square Podcast.

  • Store Update 17th January 2017 (Europe)

    It's a big one

    We're midway through January and the European PlayStation Store is back in full force. Oh boy, is it back. There's a metric ton of new titles out over the next few days, including Gravity Rush 2, The Flame in the Flood, and 2064: Read Only Memories. There are also some Atari compilations and a firefighting simulation. Variety is the...

  • News UK Sales Charts: Grand Theft Auto V Hijacks the Top Spot

    Rockstar energy

    Can you believe this? Grand Theft Auto V, the game which first released all the way back in 2013, is currently top of the UK sales charts in 2017. The popular open world affair managed to steal this week's crown from Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare – a truly amazing achievement. Familiar faces FIFA 17 and Battlefield 1 rounded out...

  • Talking Point What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 151

    Switch it up

    An exciting week comes to an end, with the Nintendo Switch now a known quantity. Of course, that's a topic of discussion for Nintendo Life and not necessarily Push Square. We've had a busy week as well, though, reviewing the likes of Gravity Rush 2 – and let me tell you, we're crunching really hard on a number of January's big titles...

  • Japanese Sales Charts PS4 Keeps a Healthy Lead as Final Fantasy XV Nears 1 Million

    Fantasy's almost a reality

    There's not too much going on in the latest Japanese hardware and software charts, but it's nice to see both the PlayStation 4 and Vita ticking along rather nicely. Sony's current-gen console has enjoyed a relatively healthy run of late, and it's sold another 78,927 units last week. Given that the PS4 averaged around...

  • News Dead or Alive 5: Last Round's Free-to-Play Version Punches Through 8 Million Downloads

    And fiesty boxer Mila's free until February

    Publisher Koei Tecmo has announced that Dead or Alive: Last Round's free-to-play package, named Core Fighters, has been downloaded over 8 million times worldwide. The game's available across multiple platforms including PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3, but it still seems like a pretty healthy number to...

  • Store Update 10th January 2017 (Europe)

    We go again

    Disaster averted! We almost popped a big fat '2016' in that headline, but it is of course a new year now. Naturally, the gaming industry is just starting to stumble out of its Christmas-induced slumber, but there's some good stuff on the European PlayStation Store this week in the form of a Tales of Berseria demo and Hatsune Miku:...

  • News UK Sales Charts: Ain't No Stopping the Call of Duty

    Nothin' to see here

    It may be a New Year, but some things never change: Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare has remained at the top of the UK sales charts for the… We've lost count, but it's been a long time now. The game fought off fierce competition from the usual suspects, with FIFA 17 and Grand Theft Auto V coming in just behind. Battlefield 1,...

  • Talking Point What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 150

    A massive milestone

    It's a milestone issue of WAYP this week, mysteriously coinciding with Ashley Young's 150th appearance for Manchester United. Must be fate, eh? Anyway. It's the end of the first week back at work, and we sincerely hope it's been a slow one for you. How will you be spending the first full weekend of 2017? Sammy Barker, Editor: I...

  • Japanese Sales Charts PS4 Ends 2016 On Top

    Last but not least

    The final Japanese hardware and software charts of 2016 are in, and the PlayStation 4 has reclaimed its place at the top of the former. Sony's current-gen console jumped Nintendo's New 3DS LL, shifting a relatively healthy 73,421 units. That means the PS4 manged to sell through almost 1.8 million units in Japan last year. Not an...

  • News UK Sales Charts: Infinite Success for Call of Duty on PS4

    Price cuts do the business

    Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare has spent practically the entirety of the Christmas period at the top of the UK sales charts. Activision may have needed to slash the price of its latest first-person shooter as low as £19.99 across the country, but it's done the trick, as the title managed to top the British best sellers...
