Store Preview: The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, Farming Simulator 15, and More

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, Farming Simulator 15, and More

Beware the big bad wolf

It's certainly not the biggest PlayStation Store update next week, but it may just have a little something for everyone. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is undoubtedly the hot new arrival, and if you didn't know already, that'll be available on the PlayStation 4. We intend to have lots more coverage of Geralt of Rivia's adventure...

Talking Point: What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 68

What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 68

Brilliance in brevity

A short but sweet edition of WAYP this week, as the bulk of the team's busy with various review assignments. Even though we're technically in the "lull" before E3, there's still tons of software deploying on the PlayStation 4 – partly due to those all-important indie titles that Sony has signed up. Will the smaller digital...

News: Natsuiro High School Is Not the PS4, PS3 Photography Game We Had in Mind

Natsuiro High School Is Not the PS4, PS3 Photography Game We Had in Mind

Looks pants

We could totally go for a new Afrika right about now. Going on Safari, expensive Nikon in hand, may have been an acquired taste on the PlayStation 3 – but it was something wholly different in an industry dominated by shooters and sidescrollers. Natsuiro High School, an open world photography game from D3 Publisher, has potential,...

News: PSN Offline for Some as the Weekend Arrives

PSN Offline for Some as the Weekend Arrives

Down and out

That massive Flash Sale must have overwhelmed Sony's servers, as the PlayStation Network is currently offline. While we're seeing plenty of complaints around the web, not everyone here at Push Square Towers is affected, so hopefully this is a minor hiccup, rather than a full-scale outage. Follow us on Twitter for up-to-the-minute PSN...

PS4, PS3, Vita Prices Plunge in Fab NA Flash Sale

Everything under a fiver

It's the weekend, so we're guessing that you're in the market for some cut price PlayStation Network software. Sony's back in North America with another quite frankly outrageous Flash Sale, spanning the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and Vita. Most of the games available will set you back just $4.80, like the Mass Effect...

April 2015 NPD: PS4 Slumps to Shock Defeat

Xbox One brushes PS4 aside

Well, well, well – this is unexpected. We reported on the PlayStation 3's failure to top the NPD charts for many years, but we've already fallen into a pattern where we expect the PlayStation 4 to lead. However, the numbers coming out of the United States for April 2015 may wake both Sony and ourselves up, as the Xbox...

News: Sorry PS3, Sony Says PS4 Is Very Much the Focus Now

Sorry PS3, Sony Says PS4 Is Very Much the Focus Now

New-gen format is the future

The switch in Sony's focus to the PlayStation 4 has been much more dramatic than in generations past. Those of you with strong memories may recall the PlayStation 2 selling almost 50 million units once it had been succeeded, but the PlayStation 3 has fallen away in almost all territories outside of Asia. This is...

Sci-Fi JRPG Lost Dimension Entrusts Us with a Western Release Date and Free DLC

No betrayal here

If you'll recall, we wrote about PlayStation 3 and Vita title Lost Dimension a little while back, and exclaimed that it seemed to have the makings of an interesting role-playing game. Atlus' creation sees you team up with a bunch of stylish teens, and as the plot progresses, you'll need to decide who's an enemy, and who isn't...

News: Badland: Game of the Year Edition Brings Yet More Quirky Platforming to PS4, PS3, and Vita

Badland: Game of the Year Edition Brings Yet More Quirky Platforming to PS4, PS3, and Vita

How many's that now?

We've completely lost count of how many side scrolling platformers are available on PlayStation platforms. With the advent of the PS4 and its keen indie initiative, it feels like we get about ten platforming-puzzler hybrids pushed onto the PlayStation Store every week. Lo and behold, here we have, of course, the announcement of...

Hella Good News! Life Is Strange: Episode 3 Launches Next Week

For reals

If the fantasy setting of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt isn't whetting your whistle, then you may be more tempted to tour Arcadia Bay from 19th May instead. Square Enix has announced that the third episode in its divisive high school series Life Is Strange will debut next week on the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3. If you've already stumped...

News: Japanese Sales Charts: Vita Overtakes PS4 as Not a Single New-Gen Title Enters Top 20

Japanese Sales Charts: Vita Overtakes PS4 as Not a Single New-Gen Title Enters Top 20

Ouch

The PlayStation 4's steadily slipping down the Japanese charts, as it suffered another sales drop last week. Sony's latest console shifted 15,992 units as it fell into third place, behind the New 3DS LL and the PS Vita. The latter continues to escape store shelves at a solid rate, though, selling through 17,273 units. You can compare the...

Store Update: 13th May 2015 (Europe)

13th May 2015 (Europe)

Tasty stuff

If you like indie games, you're in luck this week, as there are a lot of them being added as part of the European PlayStation Store update. Nom Nom Galaxy, Lost Orbit, and Toren are perhaps the biggest names in that department – but a quick shout out to Schrodinger's Cat, too. Of

PS3 Owners, It's Time to Upgrade to the PS4

Ubisoft's moving on

There are still lots of people clinging to the fact that the PlayStation 3 has a much larger install base than the PlayStation 4, but the reality is that there are many, many more active users on Sony's super machine. Ubisoft thinks so anyway, as it's ditching development on last-gen systems – well, aside from the odd casual...
