  • Store Update 16th August 2016 (Europe)

    Dance the night away

    Now that No Man's Sky is out, the summer lull is back until Deus Ex: Mankind Divided rolls around. There are some decent titles in this week's European PlayStation Store update, though – Bound and Grow Up being more than worthy of mention. There's the new episode of Hitman to look forward to, too. PS4 Games: Bound 16th...

  • News PES 2017 Partners with Liverpool FC

    Worth the Mané

    After FIFA announced that apparent "football team" Manchester United would be the official partners of FIFA 17, football fans far and wide have been in justified disgust that such a team would be allowed to be associated with the FIFA brand. Well look no further, because PES 2017 has announced an

  • News UK Sales Charts: No Man's Sky Is Sony's Second Biggest PS4 Launch Ever

    Sky's the limit

    Wait, what? No Man's Sky has become Sony's second biggest PlayStation 4 launch of all time, with only Uncharted 4: A Thief's End performing better during its first week in Britain. The game outsold Bloodborne to become the fastest selling new intellectual property published by the platform holder, and was fifth on the list of new...

  • Push Rewind No Man's Sky, PlayStation Meeting 2016, PS4K

    A busy one

    It was an enormously busy week here at Push Square Towers – despite the fact that we only published one measly review. Features led the charge this time, as we covered everything No Man's Sky, and even found time to build some hype for Sony's PlayStation Meeting presser, which will take place on 7th September. Reviews: No Man's...

    Grim up north

    This episode, Tarrant's off sunning himself, so associate editor Robert Ramsey steps in as co-host. Also, we discuss the Top 5 PS4K Reveals Sony Must Make at PlayStation Meeting 2016. Our super-duper special guest this week is the reviewer Stephen Tailby who stops in to discuss the divisive, ambitious, and multiplayer-less (?) No...

  • Talking Point What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 130

    Ready, set, go

    The athletics is finally underway at Rio 2016, and despite an unoccupied stadium, we're really looking forward to seeing some medals being won on the track. Sticking with the sport, the Premier League season also gets underway this weekend. Not an enormous amount of time for video games, then – but here's what we're playing all the...

  • News FIFA 17 Becomes the Official Video Game Partner of Manchester United

    #FIFA17IsRed

    Love it or loathe it, Manchester United is a commercial juggernaut – that much was evidenced by the sponsor-laden red carpet that was rolled out for Paul Pogba this week. And if you wondered why fictional footballer Alex Hunter signs for the Red Devils in FIFA 17's forthcoming story mode, then this may explain a thing or two: EA...

  • Japanese Sales Charts PS4 Numbers Drop as New Dynasty Warriors Game Bombs

    Please save us, Persona 5

    Dear oh dear, the latest Japanese sales charts don't make for particularly pleasant reading for PlayStation enthusiasts. For the first time in months, PS4 numbers dropped below the 20,000 mark, with Sony's current-gen console selling through just 16,469 units. Simply put, the likes of Persona 5 and Final Fantasy XV can't...

  • Game of the Month Top 4 PlayStation Games of July 2016

    Pixels, satsumas, warring China, and giant men with horns

    Oh dear, July's Game of the Month article's a bit late, isn't it? Your humble host completely forgot about our prestigious award not once but twice in the space of about four days. That's surely some sort of new record? In any case, we're here now, and after a pretty close staff vote, we've...

  • Store Update 9th August 2016 (North America)

    Space ace

    No Man's Sky is out on the North American PlayStation Store this week – did you know? Oh, you did – okay, then let's focus on some of the less publicised releases, like Indigo Prophecy which is available as a PS2 Classic. There's also [email protected] and Transformers: Fall of Cybertron to look forward to this time, in addition to some Bad...

  • Store Update 9th August 2016 (Europe)

    No man's hai

    We feel a bit sorry for everything else on the PlayStation Store this week, as nothing's going to get the same amount of attention as No Man's Sky. The likes of [email protected] and Fahrenheit do deserve a look, though – and Bears Can't Drift?! has us intrigued, too. PS4 Games: [email protected] 9th August Battleship 12th August Transformers: Fall of...

  • News Persona 5's European Release Date Will Make Fans Very Happy Indeed

    We can hardly believe it

    Persona 5 is launching in North America on the 14th February 2017, and it'll be launching on that same day in Europe. Yep, you read that right - Europe won't have to wait for an Atlus game. It's like all of our dreams have come true. And we've got Deep Silver to thank. The publisher announced that it was stepping in to...

  • News UK Sales Charts: Grand Theft Auto V Assumes the Throne

    Franklin amazing

    A sign of how slow the UK games industry is this summer: Grand Theft Auto V has reassumed its position at the top of the charts for the first time since March 2015. The game's been in the list for 150 weeks now, and this is its ninth number one. It was, however, a close-run contest between Rockstar's open world adventure and...

  • Push Rewind No Man's Sky, Red Dead Redemption 2, PS4 Firmware 4.00

    Back in time

    A fairly busy week again here at Push Square Towers, as the build up to the hotly anticipated No Man's Sky intensified, while we reviewed a handful of big games such as ABZU and [email protected] We put out a ton of feature coverage, while there were rumours regarding Red Dead Redemption 2 yet again. Reviews:

  • Talking Point What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 129

    The greatest show on Earth

    The Olympics are now officially underway, which means it's time to learn about nations that you never knew existed and watch sports that would never get primetime coverage under normal circumstances. You either love it or you hate it, but there's no denying that there's something special about the globe getting together...

  • Japanese Sales Charts Toukiden 2 Slays Its Way Into Top 5 on PS4, Vita

    Demon hunting sequel has a decent start

    Would you believe it - we've actually got something worth writing about when it comes to the latest Japanese sales charts. Toukiden 2 entered the software charts in fourth and fifth place on Vita and PlayStation 4 respectively, but neither version sold especially well, racking up around 100,000 units between...

    Water lot of great content

    Too many games, too little time: the PlayStation 4 is awash with exciting additions this week, with Batman and Abzu being the highlights.

  • News DOOM, Fallout 4 Lead Big Bethesda PSN Sale in North America

    Fallout 4's season pass is going cheaper, too

    There's a sale on Bethesda titles and downloadable content happening right now on the North American PlayStation Store, covering the company's catalogue on both PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4. Obvious standouts include discounts on current-gen games like DOOM, Fallout 4, Wolfenstein: The New Order,...

  • Round Up Batman PS4 Reviews Reveal the Telltale Title We Deserve

    Much ado about Bruce

    There was a time when a new Telltale title was an event, but given how prolific the publisher's been with its episodic output of late, its Batman series has been met by murmurs rather than fervour. That said, we love the studio's style of game, and a tale that promises to spotlight Bruce Wayne as much as the Caped Crusader...

  • News UK Sales Charts: Uncharted 4 Sales Increase 94 Per Cent

    Up and at 'em

    With the school holidays underway, Sony's pumped a ton more cash into Uncharted 4: A Thief's End here in the UK, widely advertising a special price promotion. The game dropped to £34.99 temporarily – though you could get it even cheaper at some stores – and that prompted a 94 per cent surge in sales. It still wasn't enough to...

  • News Dragon's Crown Pulled From European PlayStation Store

    Atlus takes the crown back

    Japanese fantasy brawler Dragon's Crown has been pulled the European PlayStation Store less than 24 hours after it was announced that the game would be part of the 'Big in Japan' discount sale. According to NIS America's Twitter account, the PlayStation 3 and Vita game was removed due to the expiration of the publishing...

  • News Your July PlayStation Plus Games Have Been Revealed

  • News BlazBlue: Central Fiction Confirmed for Europe in 2016

    Fact over fiction

    Publisher PQube has confirmed that it's bringing BlazBlue: Central Fiction to Europe in the fourth quarter of 2016 - and it's brought a swell new trailer along to prove it. Oh, and it's also made sure to mention that the brawler will be arriving on both PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3, much to the relief of all 12 people who are...

  • Japanese Sales Charts PS4 Refuses to Fall Despite Nintendo Software Dominance

    PS4 sales actually increase

    The PlayStation 4 is suffering from a real software drought in Japan right now, but Sony's latest console just refuses to budge from the top of the hardware charts. PS4 sales actually increased by around 2000 units despite the fact that the dismal Umbrella Corps was the only current-gen entry in the top ten - and even...

  • News Latest EU PlayStation Store Sale Cuts Prices on a Crazy Amount of Japanese Games

    Street Fighter, Final Fantasy, Dark Souls, and more

    Wow, this is probably one of the most impressive sales we've seen on the European PlayStation Store in quite some time.

  • Store Update 28th June 2016 (North America)

    God bleater

    It's another decent weekly update for the North American PlayStation Store, as anticipated Japanese role-playing game Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness launches on Sony's latest console alongside The Technomancer and the current-gen port of Resident Evil 5. Unlike Europe, however, you lucky buggers get God Eater Resurrection. Bah!...

  • Store Update 28th June 2016 (Europe)

    PS4 galore

    It's another reasonably hefty PlayStation Store update this week, with a bunch of new titles up for grabs on PlayStation 4. Western role-playing game The Technomancer joins Japanese role-playing game Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness, while Prison Architect also makes an escape. Are you buying anything? Show us your shopping list in...

  • News Bungie Abandons Destiny Content on PS3

    The end of Trials and Banner

    Bungie has laid out its future plans for Destiny on PlayStation 3, which includes the permanent cancellations of Trials of Osiris and Iron Banner. As we previously covered, Destiny's next expansion - Rise of Iron - won't be coming to PlayStation 3, but according to Troubleshooter pages on

  • News UK Sales Charts: DOOM Keeps Up the Slaughter as Rocket League Boosts into Top 10

    Football crazy

    DOOM has managed to retain its place at the top of the UK software charts, much to the disappointment of FIFA 16, which, we imagine in part thanks to Euro 2016, has been steadily moving towards the summit. Sales of id Software's shooter actually declined rather sharply, but the drop wasn't enough to knock the game from its...

  • Talking Point What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 123

    Backlog busters

    You can always tell it's summer, not because the sun is shining outside, but because WAYP is filled with people playing old games. That's certainly the case this time, as the people of Push Square Towers casually go about busting their backlogs. Alex Stinton, Reviewer: There's something to be said for returning to a game well after...

  • Talking Point What July PlayStation Plus Free Games Do You Want?

    Instant Game Collection options

    It's that time again: your free PlayStation Plus games for July are about a week away from being announced. But after a strong month including NBA 2K16 and Gone Home, what goodies could Sony offer to top it? Are you yearning for more major AAA titles, or is it a couple of indie outings that you crave? New releases...

  • News Sony Could End Up Paying Millions to Angry Linux Fans

    Nerds

    Remember when you could install Linux on a PlayStation 3? If you answered "vaguely" to the previous question, then you may be eligible to compensation – well, $9 to be precise. For the past six years, Sony's been battling a class action lawsuit, which proposed that the platform holder wronged up to 10 million owners by removing the...

  • Japanese Sales Charts PS4 Returns to Top Spot Despite Distinct Lack of New Games

    Here we are again

    It's been another incredibly quiet week for PlayStation in Japan as only one new title, Root Letter, released on Sony's latest system - and those sales figures aren't even worth mentioning. As you'd expect, Dragon Quest Heroes II remains the PS4's most popular release for the third week running, while Overwatch also stuck around...

  • News Homefront: The Revolution Leads Latest EU PlayStation Store Sale

    Loads of EA titles up for grabs, too

    It feels like Homefront: The Revolution only just released, but that hasn't stopped the predictably bland sandbox shooter from being the PlayStation Store's latest Deal of the Week. You can save if from forced occupation for as low as £29.99. Yeah, not the best of highlighted discounts, is it? Fortunately, EA...

  • Store Update 21st June 2016 (North America)

    Mighty update

    There's no rest for the wicked. Just a week removed from Sony's E3 2016 press conference, and the PlayStation Store is back with yet another major update. There's tons to look forward to here, from Mighty No. 9 and Grand Kingdom to Umbrella Corps. Let's get to it. PS4 Games: Asemblance $9.99 Deadlight: Director's Cut $19.99 Drawful...

  • Store Update 21st June 2016 (Europe)

    Mighty meat feast

    'Tis the week after E3 2016 and we're supposed to be slap bang in the middle of the summer lull, but there are no signs of any software shortages on the PlayStation Store, that's for sure. This week sees the arrival of a dozen or so new PlayStation 4 titles, including Umbrella Corps, Pac-Man 256, and Mighty No. 9. PS4 Games:...

  • Podcast Episode 9 - E3 2016 Special

    All the announcements, all the opinions

    So, apparently one of the largest gaming conventions of the year took place last week? Ben Potter and myself have never heard of it so we decided to bring you a super special episode of the Push Square Podcast to discuss Sony's conference in depth. We then skim over EA, Ubisoft, and Bethesda's only to wrap...

  • News UK Sales Charts: DOOM for Overwatch as id's Shooter Claims Throne

    Hell hath no fury

    Retail promotions have propelled DOOM to the top of the UK sales charts, ending Overwatch's spell at the summit. Uncharted 4: A Thief's End moved up into third, while FIFA 16 and Grand Theft Auto V enjoyed boosts as well. Mirror's Edge Catalyst subsequently dropped into sixth, as Call of Duty: Black Ops III, the Euro 20

  • Push Rewind The E3 2016 Highlights Edition

    Everything you need to know

    E3's over for another year. It wasn't exactly a vintage event, but it had more than enough to prove that the future's bright for the PlayStation 4. Between a cavalcade of first-party software announcements, and a decent selection of third-party titles, there's lots to look forward to over the next 18 months and beyond...

  • Talking Point What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 122

    Celebrate good times

    E3 2016 is over, which means that it's time to stop thinking about games on the horizon, and start playing the ones in your backlog. With the summer drought slowly starting to take hold, there's plenty of variety among our team's responses this week – and we expect a similar story in the comments section below. Ben Tarrant,...

  • Japanese Sales Charts PS4 Slips to Second Place as New Software Dries Up

    Sony loses pole position for first time in weeks

    Apologies for diverting your attention away from the E3 hype, but we've got to cover the latest Japanese sales charts. We're not really sure why we're bothering, though, as there really isn't much to talk about on the PlayStation front. Sony's home console dropped to second place in the hardware...

  • E3 2016 Persona 5 Looks Utterly Brilliant in New PS4 Gameplay

    Wowza

    There are promising looking games... And then there's Persona 5, which somehow looks better and better every time that we lay our eyes on it. Thanks to almost nine minutes of off-screen gameplay captured by IGN at E3 2016, we've got our best look yet and the role-playing release. Again, it just looks superb. The style, the confidence -...

  • E3 2016 Persona 5 Won't Have a Japanese Voice Option in the West

    Dub snubbed

    Bad news if you're a fan of original Japanese voice work: Persona 5 will only feature English voice acting here in the West, with no option to change it. Not a massive surprise, perhaps, seeing as both Persona 3 and Persona 4 didn't have an optional Japanese dub either, but a slight disappointment nonetheless. However, we reckon it's...

  • Store Update 14th June 2016 (Europe)

    Biohazard

    PlayStation 2 classic Siren is just one of several new titles available as part of the European PlayStation Store update today. Other highlights include Grand Kingdom, Catlateral Damage, and the Resident Evil 7 demo which launched overnight.

  • News Set Sail with Loads of Tales of Berseria PS4 Gameplay

    Combos ahoy

    With E3 2016 in full swing, it can be easier to miss stories that are developing outside of gaming's biggest annual event - but we've managed to track down a load of new Tales of Berseria gameplay regardless. The action role-playing game's looking pretty good, and you can find almost 20 minutes of it in the videos that we've embedded...

  • News UK Sales Charts: Mirror's Edge Catalyst Can't Outrun Overwatch

    Uncharted 4 drops into fourth

    Mirror's Edge Catalyst couldn't outpace Overwatch in this week's UK sales charts, meaning that Blizzard's popular first-person shooter has secured a third week at the summit. Uncharted 4: A Thief's End dropped down into fourth this time, but it remains the best-selling individual game, which is some feat given that...
