PS4 Firmware Update 1.7.2 Available For Download Now, PS3 Update 4.60 Coming Soon

Both "improve system software stability during use of some features"

If you turn on your beloved PS4 today you'll be prompted to download and install firmware package 1.7.2 — the latest update for Sony's popular next-gen home console. Owners of Sony's previous domestic system needn't feel left out, either — the PS3 is getting firmware update...

Review: Battle Princess of Arcadias (PlayStation Network)

Battle Princess of Arcadias (PlayStation Network)

Such a peach

Being a princess is overrated. You’ll soon wear out your waving hand, you have to speak to poor people (which even poor people hate doing), and the occasional gifted helicopter from the in-laws does little to take the edge off. Being a battle princess, alternatively, is a completely different affair. It means you get to go out and hit...

You'll Be Able to Test Your Skills in Naruto: Ninja Storm Revolution's Japanese Demo Next Week

Is Mecha Naruto worth the hype?

Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Revolution is slated for a Western release this September, but no doubt some of you ninjutsu enthusiasts are finding the wait near impossible. Thankfully, much like a team's dedicated medical ninja, help is close at hand. Next week, those with a Japanese PSN account will be able...

Push Rewind: E3's Best PS4 Games, Vita's AAA Doom, and Lots and Lots of Destiny

E3's Best PS4 Games, Vita's AAA Doom, and Lots and Lots of Destiny

The E3 hangover edition

It's been a relatively quiet week here at Push Square. The E3 rush is finally over, although we can't help but feel like a little part of us is missing because of its absence. Nevertheless, we tried to make sure that the past week was still packed full of content to keep you entertained during this Summer gaming lull, even...

Talking Point: Should Sony Ditch E3 Stage Shows Like Nintendo?

Should Sony Ditch E3 Stage Shows Like Nintendo?

A different direction

Very few people earnestly enjoy change. This author gets the jitters if Chart-Track’s weekly UK sales data isn’t ready to write about first thing on a Monday morning, and don’t even mention routine rupturing Bank Holidays. It was little wonder, then, that the web was awash with cynicism last year when Nintendo opted to...

Rumour: Destiny's Extra PS4 and PS3 Content Will Only Be Exclusive Till Next Year

Destiny's Extra PS4 and PS3 Content Will Only Be Exclusive Till Next Year

Jumping jive

Timed exclusive content is a lot like the lottery: it's a constant source of bitterness, until you're on the receiving end. So, it's with great care that we report on recent rumours that the promised extra features on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 for hotly anticipated shooter Destiny will only be exclusive until next year. According...

You'll Play as This Trendy Man in PS4 Shooter Far Cry 4

Just your average psychopath

Protagonists often play a big part in new game announcements, but it’s perhaps telling that Ubisoft has opted to wait until after Far Cry 4’s big coming out party to introduce you to Ajay Ghale – the character that you’ll be playing as in the forthcoming PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 first-person shooter...

Internet Singing Sensation Performs an Encore in Hatsune Miku Project Diva F 2nd

No one hit wonder

Even if you've never heard of Japanese virtual singing sensation Hatsune Miku, you'll have heard her without knowing it. Bringing even more catchy, rhythm action exclusively to the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita, she returns with her fellow digital idols in the sequel Hatsune Miku: Project Diva F 2nd. Having reached worldwide...

Grand Theft Auto V's Long Awaited Online Bank Heists Won't Break Free Just Yet

Held in custody

For many, Grand Theft Auto V's online world has been the source of a lot of mayhem-fuelled fun since the game launched last year, but for others, it's been something of a disappointment despite Rockstar's consistent post-release support. Unfortunately, those who were looking forward to robbing banks with a group of friends back in...

18th June 2014 (Europe)

On your bike

Assuming that you like bikes, there’s a lot to get excited about in this week’s European PlayStation Store update. You’ll be able to pick between pedals or petrol in Tour de France 2014 and MotoGP 14, both of which will be available on the PS4 and PS3. Assuming that you like exercise of another kind, EA Sports UFC will also enter...

Relive a Classic Adventure with Another World on PS4, PS3, and Vita Next Week

A world apart

It seems that Sony systems are the new home for classic adventure games. Last week during E3 we learned that Grim Fandango, Tim Schafer's excursion into the murky world of noir, will be coming to the PlayStation 4 and Vita. And now, we've been given a release date for Another World, the quirky sci-fi title that originally launched back...

First and foremost, you can now pre-order Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare for your platform of choice, with PlayStation-themed goodies up for grabs if you register...

Who Would Win Wednesdays: Patapon Army vs. Third Colossus Gaius

Patapon Army vs. Third Colossus Gaius

Round 19

The E3 rush is finally over, and so it's time for another instalment of Who Would Win Wednesdays, a feature where we take two PlayStation personalities and imagine them kicking the snot out of each other. The week before the biggest event in gaming, we hosted a fight between raspy voiced generic protagonist Aiden Pearce and gritty gunman...

Review: NASCAR '14 (PlayStation 3)

NASCAR '14 (PlayStation 3)

Go daddy

NASCAR ’14 sets out its stock racing stall right from the starting line. Rather than bombard you with heavily edited footage of a Go Daddy branded bar of soap on wheels, it instead tempts you in with a Buzz-esque quiz on Jeff Gordon’s past performances in the Sprint Cup series. It’s these nuggets of trivia that link the racer’s...
