Because it's a PSP title, many people are writing off Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker as some kind of spin-off saga
Not true, Hideo Kojima has been keen to emphasise over and over, this is the real deal. Over on Twitter, the Kojima Productions head honcho wrote:PW is going to be released as a portable game, but it is a TRUE MGS game in the saga, not a spin-off. Of course, we have put a lot of..
Final Fantasy XIII has shot straight to the top of the UK sales charts, with the PS3 version of the game managing 54% of the sales
Not the hugest of discrepancies between the SKUs, but it's often rare a PS3 multiplatform game outsells its XBOX 360 rival - particularly when Microsoft have broken the metaphorical bank marketing the game exclusive to their platform. Most exciting for us about this..
Naughty Dog's president Evan Wells has told Joystiq that there is a lot of story to tell in the Uncharted universe, and he'd love some of that story to hit the Playstation Portable
Speaking this week at GDC, Wells said:"I think it would be fantastic to see the game (move) onto a handheld system," Wells told Joystiq. "Each one of the episodes is sort of like a standalone thing and I..

What to say about FIFA World Cup 2010 - it's a FIFA game designed to cash-in on this year's World Cup
The difference being - FIFA games are actually properly amazing these days, suggesting even if it's only a small enhancement over FIFA 10, it's still going to be really fun. Plus this trailer has amazing music. Makes us feel all summery, despite the freezing temperatures outside.
It's a really crazy month here in the PushSquare office
Game-a-geddon is in full swing and no sooner are we done with one game, than we have to move on and get to work on another. Still, at least you're not going to be bored this month, as not only is there lots to talk about, there's lots to play. So let's get started with what's releasing this...

"Bu-Bu-But Heavy Rain sucks because it's not going to sell
" It may be a comment you've read on a message board somewhere. Well those people are not only stupid, but they're also officially wrong: Heavy Rain just topped the UK sales charts. As in — outsold every other video game in the UK in the past seven days. We thought it was "destined for failure" oh message board source of..
If, like us, you're madly excited about ogling ridiculously hot polygonal characters on your PSP while riding the train — you're in luck. Tecmo's announced that Dead Or Alive: Paradise is coming to Europe on April 2nd. Wahey!
The Japanese software chart is surprising on two counts this week
Firstly, apparently people are still way into Resident Evil. Despite essentially being a re-release of a year old game, Resident Evil 5: Gold Edition (Alternative Edition in Japan) has debuted top of the Japanese software charts selling a whopping 143,339 copies. The PSP's God Eater occupied the second spot. But most interestingly,..
Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker is a Playstation Portable title
It has no "number". But apparently there was a time when the game did. Look at this logo. It's an old one that was posted on Kojima Productions' developers blog by Jiro Oishi. It says "Metal Gear Solid 5" on it. As we all know, the number was dropped before the E3 reveal. But if you ever wanted more proof that -..
Update @ 11:18GMT: In light of further press releases and what-not we're actually really bloody confused
But what we understand is that Sony Computer Entertainment will become SNE, then the Playstation business will be separated back out into a new company called, erm, Sony Computer Entertainment. Ridiculous, right? That's what appears to be the...
Remember the PSP? Yeah, there's not been so much great content on the system early this year, but it had a rip-roaring lineup in 2009
Sony's Rob Dyer reckons players shouldn't worry, as the PSP will be getting a pretty "robust" lineup in 2010. He told IndustryGamers:I think we had a great lineup last year, said Dyer. The biggest...
It's finally that week folks
The week the rain falls. Heavily. That's right guys, Quantic Dream's major innovation Heavy Rain is due out this week, and you'll finally be able to get to the bottom of who actually is the Origami Killer. Hooray. PushSquare's Playstation Pick: Heavy Rain A shoe-in for our pick of the week, Heavy Rain is not just our...
It's no secret: we love Half-Minute Hero (like, lovvvvvvve)
So, consider us extremely tempted by these excellent "official" shirts designed by Bag Of Bees. They're available now. If you're nerdy (like us) you should probably buy one. ... We kinda just did.
Another week and another shooter has taken the crown from Ubisoft's current Wii phenomenom, Just Dance
Amazingly for Rebellion, Aliens vs Predator has become the fastest-selling game in 2010, topping last week's record holder, Bioshock 2 (now in third). Of course, they're both gonna get crushed by Battlefield: Bad Company 2. Either way, big congrats to SEGA and Rebellion, though we do have an issue..
This week's Japanese hardware chart looks vaguely similar to the week before it
The Playstation Portable still tops the charts, with the PSPgo in dead last at the other end of the spectrum. Somewhere in the middle is the Playstation 3, with some Nintendo platforms above it and the XBOX 360 far below it. Check the numbers after the jump. PSP - 39,293 Wii - 37,501 Nintendo DSi LL -..
Look, we're just as bemused as you are
Monster Hunter is a game we just don't get. But Japanese folk love it, and they love it best on the PSP. Sure Monster Hunter Tri fared fine on the Wii, but can you imagine the numbers a PSP version would do? The PSP has practically become a viable platform because of Monster Hunter. It'd be earth-shattering we tell you. Cue the frontcover from the latest issue..
It's another week in PushSquare HQ, and things are really starting to get hectic
Our pile of games just keeps getting bigger and bigger, demanding more and more of our attention. We wish the sun would come out and give us the energy we crave to actually be able to play these games. PushSquare's Playstation Pick Of The Week: Aliens vs. Predator...
Following the announcement of Street Fighter IV for iPhone yesterday, whispers have been murmered regarding a Playstation Portable version -- arguably the superior platform for a game in the vein of Street Fighter
Might just happen. In a Japanese blog-post by SFIV's project manager Natsuki Shiozawa, the Capcom employee expresses her (and her colleagues) desire to bring the title to the PSP. Make it..
Apparently Bioshock is still a big deal, as Bioshock 2 has shot straight to the top of the UK charts, removing previous leader Mass Effect 2
Interestingly, after a slew of price-cuts (and perhaps that Playstation 3 patch), Bayonetta has re-entered the charts in number 10 (up from 36). Elsewhere, Fifa 10 and Modern Warfare 2 are still strong propositions. Check out the full list after the jump..
The Playstation Portable once again topped the Japanese hardware charts this month

The Call Of Duty title in development is believed to be set in Vietnam, and is being developed by Activision's secondary CoD team Treyarch. Robomodo confirmed they are...
Half-Minute Hero is brilliant
The most off-putting thing about any RPG is the blank canvas at the start. A mountain of literature and 50 hours of your life lay in front of you, and you ask yourself "Is this going to be worth it?" Half-Minute Hero does away with the doubt, condensing each "universe" into 30-seconds. A cross...
EA has really dropped a bomb of information at the moment
We don't know if we can keep up. The latest little snippet? Spore is coming to consoles in Q1 2011. There are no real details on the console versions yet. The announcement comes after The Sims 3 was confirmed for consoles this Holiday. There are a ton of other tentative EA release dates through here, too.
EA dropped some big names at their financial call last night, detailing the planned release windows for a host of killer franchises over the next 12 months or so
Amongst the big Summer titles, EA's announced that their big, futuristic reboot Medal Of Honor is due between July and September 2010. That means you can expect a huge push at this year's E3. Medal Of Honor will be followed by another huge..
EA's announced that the Playstation version of The Sims 3 is due to release this Christmas

Very little change this week in the UK's all-formats chart, with Mass Effect 2 still holding the top-spot
Visceral Games' reimagining of Dante's Inferno entered fairly strongly at number four this week, knocking Sony's MAG to a respectable seventh. By the way, why did Ubisoft moan about Avatar's sales? It's been in the top ten for months now. Granted we've seen a few special offers on the game at..
Check it out
We knew Beaterator was cool when we reviewed it, but we never expected anyone to actually record and produce a full album-esque mixtape on the thing. But that's totally what DJ Kiva has done, using his PSP to loops samples and beats on his record BTR8ION. You can listen to the mixtape here, it's actually pretty cool. PushSquare's very own Sammy had a go at mixing his own tune
Who said the Gran Turismo franchise carries no weight these days?
Sony and Polyphony have just announced that Gran Turismo PSP, launched last Winter, has shifted over 1.8million copies. That's a startling number for a PSP game without "Monster Hunter" in the title. Polyphony's also released the worldwide sales for each Gran Turismo game below. Prepare to have your mind blown: Gran..

Square Enix has announced that they are working on five unannounced titles at the moment
They also announced that at least two of them are set to launch in 2010. No mention of whether that's just Japan or worldwide. We reckon the titles are Final Fantasy XV, Final Fantasy XVI, Final Fantasy XVII, Final Fantasy XVIII... You get the idea. What else could they be, eh? Well probably a lot actually but,..
EA are on assault with Dante's Inferno
In fact, they're about to promote their product on the Super Bowl, one of the US' biggest sporting events. Because this is such a big deal (an estimated $2.5million is being spent on each spot) EA's decided to release some screens from the advert. They're CGI. Interestingly, according to Kotaku the CBS are not too thrilled with the advertisement's tagline..
As much as we think Dante's Inferno looks to be a decent hack and slash title, we've always wondered why they're putting a God Of War inspired title up against well, the real thing
With Dante's Inferno due this week in Europe (next week in the US) and the real deal God Of War III coming just a month after that - it seems like commercial suicide right? EA think not, as they're planning to drop an..
It's a new month again, and that means more video game releases
In fact, February brings a whole host of anticipated Playstation 3 content, including Heavy Rain. But if you need something to tide you over until then, fear not, there's a decent amount of content to pick from this week. PushSquare's Playstation Pick Of The Week: Dante's Inferno So,...

Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker has been delayed
Director Hideo Kojima is pretty gutted about that. He wrote on his blog:I always preach to the staff, You must not have a delay after a release date has been announced. There is no greater crime as a game developer.Official announcement of a release date is nothing less than a promise to fans and business partners. In other words, a release..
We were kind of worried about MAG's sales
Oh, there are plenty of people playing the game to make the servers active, and the actual game is worthy of 4/4 on this very website — but if the initial sales were bad then, yo, it might mean less post-support from the folks at Zipper. Which is where MAG is likely to thrive. So it's pleasing to see MAG enter the UK sales charts at number four. Sure, the..
In a quote that could be misconstrued as a little arrogant, Sony's director of hardware marketing John Koller has told the Wall Street Journal that devices like the iPad are great for sales of the PSP
The iPad was announced by Apple this week, and is essentially an inflated iPod Touch, capable of supporting the numerous millions of Apps on the iTunes Store.Apples entrance into the portable..
Konami's announced that Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker has been pushed back a month in Japan
The game was originally due on March 18th in the country, but it'll now land on April 29th. That delay, however, will not affect the Western release in May.
According to a report from Nikkei (through the lovely folks at Reuters), Sony are expected to announce a profit of ¥100 billion ($1
1 billion) for the period of October through December 2009. It'll basically be the first profit Sony has posted in what seems like an age. The profit's believed to come from improved Playstation 3 sales (the Slim model...

If you're still not sure playing an RPG in order 30-seconds is for you, then perhaps you'd be interested in a demo for Rising Star's Half-Minute Hero

Of which there is some. Namely multiplayer action in the form of Zipper's MAG. PushSquare's Playstation Pick Of The Week: MAG Public opinion has been mixed for Zipper's MAG, but whether it ends up being a huge success or colossal failure, its scope and ambition is great...
Can anyone think of any other songs aside from those by Lady GaGa that use the lyric "just dance" as a central theme? We're racking our brains here in the PushSquare office but nothing's coming
Answers on a postcard merci beaucoup. Yep, if the overly obvious post-title didn't give it away, we can confirm that Wii-title Just Dance has beaten Modern Warfare 2 to the UK charts top-spot for the second..
When you've got an IP as rich as the Metal Gear universe, it surprises me that anyone truly understands the fiction
We guess though, if anyone has a semblance of an idea about what's going on - it would be creator Hideo Kojima. Thus it's no surprise to hear Kojima tell Official Playstation Magazine that, "Not so many ideas come from the other staff." In fact, the video game legend..
.. But, yo, if you were looking for something mind-blowing then perhaps set yourself up for disappointment right now; the games listed by the ESRB for release on the American Playstation Store include: Extreme Pinball, Hi-Octane, and Sim Theme Park. There you go.
Supervillain Studios have released a few new screens for Fat Princess: Fistful Of Cake, the upcoming PSP iteration of the popular PSN multiplayer title

Only serving to fuel our obsession with Asian pop-music, Nana Mizuki - the voice of the Costa Rican chick Paz Ortega Andrade in Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker - has topped the Japanese pop charts with Phantom Minds
The single moved 54,000 copies last week. It's like a breakneck ballad with an all-over-the-place bassline and lots of filtered drum fills. Hear it after the jump.
Riddle us this
Given the possibility of exclusive brand characters appearing in the relevant SKUs of Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing emerged from a leaked Sony document, we'd assumed there would have been an announcement for a racing Sackboy or Ratchet by now. Curiously, announcements for Mii compatibility in the Nintendo Wii version of the game...
Hey look, it's that time of the week again: Mon-day
Despite us incessantly rambling that, yo, this is the busiest first quarter of game releases like, erm, ever, there's not much to pick from here.

Come on guys
Dance. After nine weeks, Modern Warfare 2 has finally been knocked off the top of the British sales charts which means — we get to say something interesting in this post for once. Like quoting Lady GaGa lyrics. That's right folks, of all the games to topple Infinity Ward's shooter, the Wii's Just Dance has done the impossible. On red wine. So what else's going down on the floor?..

The craftily entitled Monsters (Probably) Stole My Princess! is an upwards scrolling platformer, in which players control a aristocratic demon named "The Duke". The game is set to push what's possible...
Maybe next time, we'll drop the clue
But our little game still won't be much fun, yo. It's too obvious. At this stage we're starting to believe that even when something huge, like, say, Final Fantasy XIII or God Of War III launches; Modern Warfare 2 will still be sitting atop the British sales charts. It'll probably still be there in 2011. By which time we'll have run out of funny comments to write..

With our thinking caps firmly on, here's our list of predictions for the year...
Remember that advertisement with a PSP-4000 logo we told you about? Yeah, that was a mistake
