Surprise! Persona 5 is Coming to PS4 After All

Plus, get a quick look at the game's cast

Ever since its initial reveal, Persona fans have been clawing at developer Atlus for a PlayStation 4 port of Persona 5. At first, the upcoming Japanese RPG was confirmed as a PS3 exclusive. Of course, that's no longer the case, as a new trailer that was shown at Sony's pre-Tokyo Game Show conference...

Push Rewind: September's PlayStation Plus Offering, More PSN Downtime, and Saints Row on PS4

September's PlayStation Plus Offering, More PSN Downtime, and Saints Row on PS4

A mixed bag

It's been a rather straightforward week here at Push Square. We've had a fair few reviews, a little bit of bad news, and a look at September's all important PlayStation Plus update. The week ahead is perhaps more important, as we gaze forward to Sony's pre-Tokyo Game Show conference and next month's big releases, but it's always nice...

Video: Watch as We Take a Trip Back in Time to Round-Up Gamescom 2014 and Its Game of the Show

Watch as We Take a Trip Back in Time to Round-Up Gamescom 2014 and Its Game of the Show

Oh the memories

Ah, good old Gamescom 2014. Remember when it divided the gaming community because of its supposed focus on smaller games? We thought that you would. Anyway, we know that it's a bit late, but madcap Video Editor Ben Potter would still love for you to watch his typically mental round-up video. As you may remember, the newly announced...

What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 36

All night long

Ah, the weekend – that quiet period where real work is cancelled in favour of household chores. Assuming that you get a break from doing the cooking, cleaning, and fixing that wonky shelf in your bathroom, then you’ll probably be investing it in front of your favourite PlayStation format. Here’s what we’re going to be up to...

News: Phew, Dragon Age: Inquisition's Multiplayer Will Not Affect the Single Player Story

Phew, Dragon Age: Inquisition's Multiplayer Will Not Affect the Single Player Story

Thank the Maker

We remember the negative commotion that surrounded Mass Effect 3's co-op mode all too well, and so we were a little worried about whether or not Dragon Age: Inquisition's newly announced multiplayer would have any effect on the single player story, if only so we didn't have to wade through countless hate-filled forum posts...

News: Saints Row: Gat Out of Hell is Coming to PS4, and It's, Er, a Standalone Expansion Pack

Saints Row: Gat Out of Hell is Coming to PS4, and It's, Er, a Standalone Expansion Pack

Gone when the morning comes

Well, we didn't see that one coming. As you've no doubt heard, publisher Deep Silver released a Saints Row teaser image over Twitter earlier today, and with developer Volition hosting a panel at this year's PAX convention this evening, it seemed all but assured that the crazy sandbox franchise would be making an...

Talking Point: Is Indie Becoming a Defunct, Dirty Word?

Is Indie Becoming a Defunct, Dirty Word?

Term worm

Indie is the video game equivalent of Marmite: a sector of the medium so divisive that it’s simultaneously culpable of both dismay and delight. The very website that you’re reading is evidence of that, but we’re not alone: scuffles and skirmishes more heated than the format wars themselves can be attributed to the increasingly...

Review: The Walking Dead: Season 2, Episode 5 - No Going Back (PlayStation Network)

The Walking Dead: Season 2, Episode 5 - No Going Back (PlayStation Network)

The long and winding road

Back in July, when Telltale’s critically acclaimed The Wolf Among Us wrapped up its first season, The Walking Dead was only at its halfway point – but the developer has raced to Season Two’s finale since then. As those of you that are familiar with the series will already know, this second set of episodes puts you...

Metal Slug 3 Runs and Guns Its Way onto the PS4, PS3, and Vita

Pixel perfect port

No self-respecting videogame console would be complete without at least a handful of Metal Slug ports to its name, so we're happy to report that Metal Slug 3 will be arriving on all three of Sony's super systems later this year. Recently announced on the PlayStation Blog, the bombastic port will apparently come packed with some...

Review: Tales of Xillia 2 (PlayStation 3)

Tales of Xillia 2 (PlayStation 3)

Cat scratch Ludger

Tales of Xillia 2 is the sequel to last year's successful Tales of Xillia on the PlayStation 3. Much like the previous game, it’s charming, wonderful, and rewarding all at the same time. The worlds of Rieze Maxia and Elympios return as well as most of the gameplay from the original, and being the 14th title in the Tales series,...

Sound the good news klaxon: Mega Man X4 and Mega Man X5, both of which originally released on the PSone, are coming to modern consoles this September. The PlayStation 3 and PS Vita will both be getting the much-loved pair in a move that's sure to delight Capcom fans and masochists the world over. Surprisingly, the release dates,...

Got a 12GB PS3? Sorry, You Can't Play Grand Theft Auto Online Anymore

Unlucky number 12

If you've got a 12GB PlayStation 3, then we've got some bad news for you. As if it wasn't bad enough that your console has barely enough room to download a decent collection of movies, or that you can only install a few games at a time before running out of space, it's now been revealed that Grand Theft Auto Online will no longer...

You'll Get These Extras for Purchasing Destiny on PS4

Just to sweeten the sale

It feels like we’ve been writing about Destiny for an eternity now, so thank heavens it’s due out in a couple of weeks. In order to pad out the time while you wait, Activision has released a new trailer showing off the title’s PlayStation exclusive content, which will remain restricted to Sony’s machines until Fall...

Yay, PSN's Delayed Scheduled Maintenance Returns Today

Don't worry, you'll be able to play online

We suppose that we should give Sony credit for delaying the PlayStation Network’s previously planned maintenance after Sunday’s outage – even if it was only for a few days. The platform holder has announced that Monday’s postponed preservation period will now take place later today in both

News: LEGO Batman 3 Travels Beyond Gotham from 11th November

LEGO Batman 3 Travels Beyond Gotham from 11th November

Beyond Gotham, Before Christmas

The LEGO series may not be the world's most innovative, but it reliably serves up a satisfying, kid-friendly portion of brick-bashing and exploration. Later this year, LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham is scheduled to appear on the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and Vita – and it's now been confirmed when we'll be getting...

News: Here's Dragon Age: Inquisition's Inevitable Co-Op Trailer

Here's Dragon Age: Inquisition's Inevitable Co-Op Trailer

One for all

Any fan of Dragon Age: Origin's deadly rogue Leliana will no doubt be excited to hear her ask for your help in Dragon Age: Inquisition's freshly announced co-op mode, so we suppose that's a pretty effective way to begin this multiplayer focused trailer. It's not a long one, only clocking in at about a minute and a half, but we do get a...

Review: Risen 3: Titan Lords (PlayStation 3)

Risen 3: Titan Lords (PlayStation 3)

Roll with it

For any series to make it to a third entry is quite an achievement, especially when it’s a perennial underachiever like the Risen games. After leaning heavily into the more piratical aspects for its first sequel, developer Piranha Bytes has doubled down on this approach for Risen 3: Titan Lords, letting you once again sail the high...
