  • Soapbox Sony Should Pinch the Nintendo Direct Format

    Sammy reckons there's mileage in Nintendo's marketing

    I did something I rarely do this week: I watched a Nintendo Direct. To be honest, I have a weird relationship with the Big N's pre-recorded events: I've watched the E3 ones before and I've always felt that, for everything they gain in pacing and structure, they lack the kind of energy that you...

  • 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...

  • News PlayStation Congratulates Nintendo on Zelda Success

    Claims it's an "amazing time for gaming"

    In the latest edition of advertising disguised as a pat on the back, PlayStation UK has publicly congratulated Nintendo on the success of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

  • News PSN's Raking in More Cash Than the Entirety of Nintendo

    It's true

    Remember the days when Sony perpetually felt like one flop away from financial catastrophe? This author does – after all, Push Square was founded during some dark times for the Japanese manufacturer. The company's doing much, much better under the leadership of Kaz Hirai, however, and PlayStation especially is in a positive place. One...

  • News Nintendo's NX Probably Won't Be Compatible with the PS4

    Despite what you may have heard

    Embrace the nonsense because alongside that dumb-as-a-Jim-Carrey-and-Jeff-Daniels-double-act survey that's leaked, the silly circus has well and truly erected a tent on top of the as of yet unannounced Nintendo NX. Reports around the web earlier this morning suggested that the House of Mario's new piece of...

  • News PlayStation Pays Its Respects to Nintendo's Satoru Iwata

    Rest in peace

    There are days for debate and discussion – and then there are days for respect and reflection. Nintendo confirmed the premature passing of CEO Satoru Iwata overnight, and while he spent his entire career at the House of Mario, his incredible influence can be felt across the entire industry at large. As a consequence, many of...

  • News Take a Closer Look at the Nintendo PlayStation

    True treasure

    You've all seen – and angrily commented on – our story about the Nintendo PlayStation, but how would you like to take a closer look at the cancelled console? The prototype platform's owner, Dan Diebold, has uploaded a video on YouTube showing off the disc-based device, which was conceived as part of a poisoned partnership between...

  • News Oh Look, It's a Nintendo PlayStation Console

    You what

    Fridays are usually pretty quiet when it comes to games journalism, probably because everyone just wants to start the weekend early and, actually, you know, play some video games for once. Apparently, though, a poster over on ASSEMbler didn't get the memo, as they've revealed the existence of an actual Nintendo PlayStation console that...

    Smashin' stuff

    We already know that Sony's been trying to make a Super Mario movie, but what we didn't previously know is that it wants to make a Super Smash Bros flick, too. Uncovered by Ars Technica as part of the Japanese giant's now infamous emails hack, there are multiple references to Nintendo's mascot mash-up, with the firm apparentl

  • Weirdness Nintendo's Better at Promoting the Vita Than Sony

    Well, someone needs to do a decent job

    We all drop the odd clanger from time to time – Watch Dogs footage, anyone? – but its better when a giant corporation does it. Indeed, this latest hiccup by Nintendo is especially humorous – as it’s somehow managed to post a PlayStation Vita video while attempting to promote our sister site Nintendo...
