Simon's Personal PlayStation Picks

OMG!

Every year the Push Square Team gets together to vote for the site's PlayStation Game of the Year. While we usually keep these polls secret, we're putting the spotlight on some of our authors this holiday so that they can highlight some of their personal favourites from 2015. Today it's the turn of Simon Fitzgerald, where variety rules the...

22nd December 2015 (North America)

Worked up over fireworks

One more for the road? G'wan, then. It's the last North American PlayStation Store update of the year, which means that… Well, Fantavision is the highlight. But hey, everyone likes fireworks around New Year time, and this PlayStation 2 launch title's got 'em in spades. The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel is also out...

Store Update: 22nd December 2015 (Europe)

22nd December 2015 (Europe)

The last noel

"It's almost Christmas," we hear you scream. That don't mean that the European PlayStation Store's taking time off, though. The highlight this week is probably Fantavision – the PlayStation 2 launch title which is now available on the PlayStation 4. Also twinkling in the corner of our eye are Hatoful Boyfriend: Holiday Star and...

Kojima Picks PlayStation, PS4's Report Card, and Sony's 2016

One more time

It's been a quiet week on the site as we prepare our Game of the Year coverage, but one big story did hit the headlines over the past seven days: Hideo Kojima has formed a new studio and is partnering with PlayStation to develop his first post-Konami title. This is the last edition of Push Rewind until 2016, but don't worry, because...

Point Your Pickaxes at an Hour of Dragon Quest Builders PS4 Gameplay

Bricks and mortar

Square Enix must be rubbing its paws in anticipation of the release of Dragon Quest Builders in Japan next month, because Minecraft: PS Vita Edition's success in the nation has proven that there's a market for block busters in the East – the genre just needs a little old-school RPG brand power to take it to the next level...

Attackers Threaten to Take PSN Offline Again This Christmas

Bah humbug

There'll be very little Christmas cheer for the unfortunate band of technicians tasked with keeping the PlayStation Network online this month, as attackers have threatened to bring Sony's service to its knees over the all-important holiday break. A group named Phantom Squad has already successfully unsettled Xbox Live this evening, and...

Review: Yakuza 5 (PS3)

Yakuza 5 (PS3)

Gangster's paradise

Should the long awaited Yakuza 5 prove to be the PlayStation 3's swan song, there couldn't be a more fitting release. Like the last-gen system itself, the latest instalment in SEGA's seedy soap opera is occasionally convoluted and slow to get started, but it's deeply entertaining all the same. It may have taken series protagonist...

Japanese Sales Charts: Gravity Rush Features as PS4 and Vita Enjoy Holiday Bump

Mixed up world

15th December 2015 (Europe)

Let 'er rip

'Tis the season to play your backlog so there's not much new on the European PlayStation Store this week. The biggest arrivals include Assassin's Creed Syndicate's beefy Jack the Ripper add-on and PaRappa the Rapper 2, which is launching as a PlayStation 2 port on the PlayStation 4. There's also some free DriveClub content and a ton of...

Tales of Berseria Spins An All-New Yarn in 2016 on PS4, PS3

But only in Japan for now

Before we get to the subject at hand, we have a tale of our own to share: office weeaboo Robert Ramsey has taken some time off, so forgive us if we don't grasp the anime intricacies of this Tales of Berseria trailer. The game, which is due out on the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 in Japan next year, will see you assume...

Looks Like Star Wars 1313 May Happen After All

Not being sarlacc-stic

If you're a Star Wars fan, you probably remember the Star Wars 1313 trailer – largely because it was excellent. It promised a grittier, more action-adventure based Star Wars game, not unlike Uncharted, and many people were pretty excited for it, considering it explored Boba Fett's past, something that hadn't really been...
