Push Rewind: Call of Duty: Black Ops III, Silent Hills, The Elder Scrolls Online

Call of Duty: Black Ops III, Silent Hills, The Elder Scrolls Online

Mixed feelings

Don't pull that face. Yes, we know Push Rewind is very much a Sunday night staple – but this weekend was an abnormally busy one for everyone in the office, so cut us some slack. It goes without saying, then, that there's a lot to recap in this week's feature, including the announcement of Call of Duty: Black Ops III. Are you...

News: Woohoo! The Simpsons are Bringing a Lot of Yellow to Minecraft on PS4, PS3, Vita

Woohoo! The Simpsons are Bringing a Lot of Yellow to Minecraft on PS4, PS3, Vita

Mmmm, pixelated blocks

Fans of The Simpsons may well be drooling like a starved Homer right about now, with the announcement that Minecraft's getting a rather large set of character skins based on the animated comedy. The DLC pack will be bringing its yellowy charm to PlayStation platforms this week, and it'll set you back £3.29. While the show...

Rumour: Call of Duty: Black Ops III Will Skip PS3

Call of Duty: Black Ops III Will Skip PS3

First screenshots sneak out

The ageing PlayStation 3 may have just got another nail embedded into its coffin, as it sounds like Call of Duty: Black Ops III will be skipping last-gen systems, and focusing on the latest round of hardware, such as the PlayStation 4. An early article from Mashable – which includes the handful of screenshots embedded...

Fan of Final Fantasy XIV? This Trailer Is Definitely the Best Thing You'll See Today

Ultimate finish

In what has to be one of the best joke trailers we've seen in a long time, Square Enix has slapped the cast of Final Fantasy XIV Online: A Realm Reborn into a Street Fighter-esque brawl, and released the madness in the form of the video that we've embedded. The fake trailer was shown during a recent Japanese live event regarding the...

What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 65

Blood and thunder

Issue 65, already? Blimey, the weeks just fly by, don't they? We're now approaching a couple of quiet weeks on Planet PlayStation, so there's never been a better time to put a dent into your backlog. But will it be older games padding out your itinerary this week, or are you still working through more recent releases? Here's what...

A Heck of a Lot of People Still Like Destiny, Reef Reveal Stream Attracted Over 137,000 Concurrent Viewers

The tower that refuses to fall

For all the online hate that Destiny gets, you'd think that it'd be a somewhat unpopular game. On the contrary, and as history has so often taught us, the most popular entertainment almost always comes under the most fire, and this is true of Bungie's sci-fi shooter, too, which is still being enjoyed religiously by...

Call of Duty: Black Ops III Teases a New Race of Super Soldier

(Bionic) arms race

Well, this could be interesting. Activision's dropped a new teaser trailer for Call of Duty: Black Ops III – curiously, it's popped up on a Sony YouTube account first – which outlines the sequel's premise. In it, we're introduced to a variety of biological enhancements, all of which culminate in a faux-United States official...

News: Shovel Knight Ploughs a Path to EU PlayStation Platforms

Shovel Knight Ploughs a Path to EU PlayStation Platforms

Spade in the USA

It may have only been a day overdue, but let's be honest: Shovel Knight shouldn't have been late in the first place. Fortunately, we can all take solace in the news that Yacht Club Games' critically acclaimed side-scroller is finally available in Europe – apparently it managed to break free from SCEE's infamous QA limbo, which...

The Curious Case of Head Transplants and Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain

Head case

If we assume that Hideo Kojima really is being pushed out of Konami, and his employment status isn't just a big viral marketing move, then the luminary may find his role at the company that little more untenable today. Dr Sergio Canavero, a controversial medical professional vying to complete the world's first ever head transplant, has...

Live: Explore Destiny's New Social Space in House of Wolves Right Here

Explore Destiny's New Social Space in House of Wolves Right Here

Enter the Reef, for real this time

Destiny players will already know of the Reef; a location that appears on the game's map only to house a couple of story cutscenes and nothing more. The shooter's next slice of DLC, House of Wolves, will open this area up, however, and you'll have a chance to see the DLC's new social space in all of its glory later...

Feature: What Do You Mean You've Never Played... Trash Panic?

What Do You Mean You've Never Played... Trash Panic?

To bin or not to bin

Trash Panic is rubbish in the best possible way. A concept tossed out by Japan Studio when the PlayStation 3 was about as popular as a bin man in a hoarder's back room, the barmy release sees you playing Tetris with debris. It sounds simple enough, but it's harder than controlling your gag reflexes while washing in a bath...

Sorry Europe, You're Not Getting Shovel Knight Today

SCEE strikes back

Costume Quest 2 is finally out in Europe six months after the holiday that it was produced to promote, so what are you whinging about? Oh, that's right: Shovel Knight, which everyone expected to be part of today's European PlayStation Store update, is actually not due out in the Old World until, er, tomorrow. Maybe. Why? We're...

Japanese Sales Charts: PS4 Manages to Cling to the Top Spot Despite Another Drop

Hangin' on in there

Despite the fact that we thought the PlayStation 4 would finally be knocked from its perch at the top last week, Sony's sleek home console actually managed to seize another victory, even though sales have slipped again, this time by around 2000 units. Of course, this is still only possible because of the fact that New 3DS...

Store Update: 22nd April 2015 (Europe)

22nd April 2015 (Europe)

Tonight's the knight

We're running out of spade-related puns, so let us just say things straight: Shovel Knight is out on the European PlayStation Store this week. There's a fairly healthy roster of software for PlayStation owners to sink their teeth into actually, with LA Cops and Assassin's Creed Chronicles: China also part of the roster. Basement...

Adventure Time Investigates PS4, PS3 This Fall

Ooo

There's been a selection of less-than-stellar Adventure Time tie-ins released on PlayStation platforms over the years, but the forthcoming Adventure Time: Finn and Jake Investigations aims to take the popular Cartoon Network series in an all-new direction. Indeed, this outing's shunning the isometric exploits of its immediate predecessor in...
