  • Round Up TMNT: Mutants in Manhattan Gets Deep Panned by Critics

    This isn't what we ordered

    After the enjoyable jaunt that is Transformers: Devastation, we had reasonably high hopes for Platinum Games' take on Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, but it's not looking good for the mean green fighting machines. There are a few reviews dotted around the web right now, and the majority of them aren't exactly positive. So,...

  • Japanese Sales Charts Uncharted 4 Holds on to the Top Spot for Second Week Running

    Drake's moderate fortune

    Anyone who's played an Uncharted game will know of Nathan Drake's insane ability to grip even the smallest environmental outcrop, but rather than hanging on for dear life, Uncharted 4: A Thief's End is actually enjoying its time at the top of the Japanese software charts for the second week in a row. The PlayStation 4...

  • Store Update 24th May 2016 (North America)

    Gin blossoms

    The biggest new addition to the North American PlayStation Store this week? It's not Overwatch, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants in Manhattan, or Downwell – it's the addition of Hey Jealousy to the Rock Band 4 store. Love that song.

    Cow-a-bomba

    Heroes in a half-shell? More like heroes at half the framerate, huh? Digital Foundry has released some hands-on impressions of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants in Manhattan – and they're not particularly positive. We've been told that review code isn't quite ready to go yet, so this is the best that you're getting for now. So,...

  • Store Update 24th May 2016 (Europe)

PS4 Games:...

A loving re-release of one of the finest PS3 exclusives, this new offering is accompanied by the first western release of the game's excellent soundtrack, composed by the...

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

    Pick your perfect lineup

    Ah, June – one of those months where its first day happens to be a Wednesday. This means that we're not entirely sure whether the latest PlayStation Plus update will be announced later this week or next week, but you can bet your bottom dollar that we'll be pestering disgruntled PlayStation employees trying to find out...

  • UK Sales Charts Uncharted 4 Clings on to Top Spot

    Gold

    Sony's enjoying a real strong spell at the top of the UK sales charts, as Uncharted 4: A Thief's End is the latest title from the publisher to enjoy successive weeks at the summit. Sales for Nate Drake's latest did drop sharply after its record breaking launch, meaning that DOOM was clipping at its heels – but Naughty Dog's outstanding...

  • Push Rewind Sony E3 Presser Timing, DOOM, Shadow of the Beast

    Gran Turismo Sport! Homefront: The Revolution! More!

    This week was overshadowed by the dread that Sony announcing its E3 2016 press conference onset. It's another late one here at Push Square Towers, but at least it'll be all over soon. Amid panic attacks, we reviewed old-school revivals DOOM and Shadow of the Beast, interviewed one of the writers...

    Waiting for Overwatch edition

    Hoooo, boy – is that the end of another week? It means that we're one step closer to E3, which is both terrifying and exciting all at the same time. Still, we should probably make the most of these final moments of quiet while we can, and what better way to enjoy the silence than with some games? Here's what we're...

  • News NA PSN Flash Sale Asks You to Surrender Your Wallet

    Give it up

    Online speculation had suggested that Sony may roll out a Flash Sale on the North American PlayStation Store this week, and it's turned out to be true. While it's yet to be officially confirmed on the PlayStation Blog, the discounts are live right now and ready to be taken advantage of. The question is: is your wallet up to the task?...

  • Poll Which Uncharted Game Is the Best?

    Draaaaake!

    We bet that some of you saw this one coming. Naughty Dog's hardly put a foot wrong with Nathan Drake, the luckiest man alive and protagonist of the Uncharted series. Although Uncharted: Drake's Fortune didn't quite set the world alight when it launched back in 2007, we're not sure that anyone could have anticipated the runaway success...

  • Rumour Here's an Early Glimpse of Destiny's Next Expansion

    Ironing things out

    Destiny's upcoming expansion, of which we've known very little about until now, appears to have leaked. The add-on's key artwork appeared on Reddit overnight, and sources familiar with Bungie have apparently confirmed to Kotaku that it's legitimate. As you can see from the above image, the expansi

  • Japanese Sales Charts Uncharted 4 Climbs Above the Competition

    PS4 sticks to the top, too

    Uncharted 4: A Thief's End has enjoyed reasonably healthy opening sales in Japan, claiming the top spot on the software charts and selling through 128,725 copies. While not a huge amount, it's a good start for the PlayStation 4 exclusive, and we'd wager that it'll stick around in the top 20 for a couple of weeks at...

  • News May Madness Sale Brings Big Discounts to PS4 in Europe

    The Witcher 3, The Elder Scrolls Online, and more

For example, if you're looking for a meaty role-playing game to keep you busy this summer, you may want to check...

  • Store Update 17th May 2016 (North America)

    Rise up

    It's an absolutely massive week on the North American PlayStation Store, with the PlayStation 4 fronting the charge.

    Beast feast

    If you're a PlayStation 4 owner, then prepare to rejoice: this week's roster of new digital releases is frankly frightening.

There's also Homefront: The Revolution due out later this week...

  • News Dragon Quest Heroes II's Opening Movie Is a Real Charmer

    Heroic effort

    If there's one thing that the Dragon Quest series has always had, it's bucketloads of charm - and there's plenty of that on show in Dragon Quest Heroes II's opening cutscene. Square Enix has put the movie online for us all to enjoy before the hack and slash title launches later this month in Japan, and we've embedded it below. The...

  • UK Sales Charts Uncharted 4 Smashes Predecessor's Sales on PS4

    Draking it in

    With some inevitability, Uncharted 4: A Thief's End has become the fastest selling entry in Naughty Dog's popular action adventure series to date in the UK, with sales of the PlayStation 4 exclusive bettering those of PlayStation 3 predecessor Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception by 66 per cent. That puts the game in a very handsome...

  • Talking Point What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 117

    A thief's DOOM

    This week saw the release of Uncharted 4: A Thief's End and DOOM, so you can guarantee that this edition of WAYP will be dominated by the two hottest additions to the PlayStation 4's library. *Reads Ramsey's entry*. Oh, for f***'s sake... Sammy Barker, Editor: I'll be playing DOOM this weekend, I guess. I've got to be brutally...

  • News April 2016 NPD: Dark Souls III, Ratchet & Clank, MLB 16 The Show Up Top for PS4

    Update: PS4 was best selling console

    Sony slumped to a shock defeat in April 2015's unexpected NPD sales report, but this year all three major console manufacturers have declined to comment on hardware numbers. Whatever the reason for that, the manufacturer can take heart from some pretty outstanding software performers – including Ratchet &...

  • Japanese Sales Charts PS4 Still Top Despite a Total Lack of New Games

    Zzzzzzz

    It's been a boring few weeks for the Japanese hardware and software charts, and we're afraid that there's no excitement to be found this time around, either. PlayStation 4 sales dropped by about 4000 units, but Sony's latest system still managed to stick to the top spot - that is, if you don't count New 3DS and New 3DS LL numbers as one...

  • Store Update 10th May 2016 (North America)

    Uncharted territory

    It's a smaller North American PlayStation Store update this time, but no less lacking in blockbusters. Uncharted 4: A Thief's End is the undeniable highlight, but a special mention must be reserved for DOOM. Someone will probably be interested in that new Neptunia game, too. Maybe? PS4 Games: Uncharted 4: A Thief's End $59.99...

  • Store Update 10th May 2016 (Europe)

    One last time

    It's the very definition of a short but sweet week on the European PlayStation Store this time, with a little game called… Well, Uncharted 4: A Thief's End available. That's right, Naughty Dog's opus is finally out now, and it's not the only blockbuster in this update. Indeed, first-person shooter DOOM is also due out on Friday. What...

  • UK Sales Charts Battleborn Reaches Number One, But...

    Ratchet & Clank still best selling individual game

    We're not entirely sure how, but Battleborn has managed to top the UK sales charts. There is a big "but" that simply must follow this sentence, however, as Ratchet & Clank was still the best-selling game of the week in terms of individual units. What does this mean, then? Basically, the only...

  • Push Rewind Uncharted 4, Call of Duty, Battlefield 1, Persona 5

    All of the blockbusters

Elsewhere, Persona 5 got a Japanese release date for good measure – a busy one all around, then...

  • Talking Point What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 116

    Overwatch and out

    A bit of inside baseball: your humble host is horrible at organising WAYP every week. Despite the feature being in its 116th instalment, you could probably count on one hand the number of times this editor has contacted his team on time in order to solicit entries for the article. This time it's finally come to bite this shamed...

    Shooter has almost 30 million users

  • Japanese Sales Charts PS4 Still Number One After a Slow Few Weeks

    King of the hill

    The gaming market's been relatively quiet in Japan over the last few weeks as far as PlayStation goes, but despite a lack of new, blockbuster software, Sony's latest machine has remained at the top of the hardware charts - and that was the case again last week. The only new PS4 title worth mentioning is Konami's fun looking...

  • News Persona 5 Will Be Sneaking into E3 2016

    Could we get a Western release date?

    Admittedly, there's not much in this story right now, but according to Atlus' Persona 5 live broadcast, the game will be at E3 2016 in some capacity. Whether this means it'll show up at Sony's press conference or not, we'll just have to wait and see. If you haven't already seen the news, the role-playing title...

    Battle yield

    Is your trigger finger quivering in anticipation for Battlefield's planned reveal this week?

Not bad at...

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

    A lot of aliens, agents, and Ashen Ones

    March was an unusually quiet month for new releases, but don't worry: April appears to have picked up the slack. The Push Square team was hard at work last month, penning all sorts of critiques for various blockbuster titles – and as a result, our list of nominees for April's Game of the Month was the...

  • Store Update 3rd May 2016 (Europe)

    Battletorn

    There are a decent amount of new releases hitting the European PlayStation Store this week, but we're not sure if they'll be to everyone's liking - mostly because Battleborn is the one title that we'd single out as a highlight, despite there being no hype whatsoever surrounding its launch. Anyway, peruse what's up for grabs, then tell us...

  • UK Sales Charts Ratchet & Clank Stays Top for a Second Week

    Crank it up

    There ain't no budging Ratchet & Clank from the summit of the UK sales charts, as it's scored a second successive week at the top following its first ever number one last time. The game's sales only dipped by 50 per cent compared to its launch week, which is really rather impressive – games tend to drop off in sales quickly...
