What Did You Think of Sony's Pre-Tokyo Game Show Conference?

Rate all those lovely games

Sony's pre-Tokyo Game Show press conference has come and gone, and although we hauled ourselves out of bed rather early in the morning, we're finding it hard to say that it wasn't worth it. After today's showing, we're becoming convinced that Sony has finally nailed the pacing of its pressers. The games just kept coming,...

Watch the Sony PlayStation Pre-TGS 2014 Press Conference Right Here

It's PS4 and Vita's time to shine in Japan

There ain’t no party like a PlayStation party – and the best thing about Sony is that there’s very little delay between shows. Hot on the heels of its Gamescom presentation less than a month ago, the platform holder’s set to invade Tokyo for an event dedicated to its Japanese fans. Join us from...

News: A Brand New Entry in the Beloved Ys Series is Coming to PS4 and Vita in 2015

A Brand New Entry in the Beloved Ys Series is Coming to PS4 and Vita in 2015

Oh Ysssssss!

Ys is a funny old series. The most recent one to come out in the west was Memories of Celceta on Vita, to which we gave a very positive review, but there have been plenty of entries which missed Europe entirely. And while it remains a hopelessly niche property over here in the west, in Japan it's a major franchise. Running since 1987,...

Splat Giant Bugs on PS4 With Earth Defense Force 4.1: The Shadow of New Despair

Get off my planet

Earth Defense Force is one of the those franchises that clicks because of its simplistic, focused nature. Our planet is in danger, we grab guns, we shoot absolutely everything within a five mile radius, and we get a bigger gun as a reward for our services. It knows that it's a daft game, and it doesn't strive for anything other...

Study With a Virtual Reality Schoolgirl on PS4, Thanks to Tekken Team and Project Morpheus

Oh, Harada...

Project Morpheus is exciting tech for PlayStation 4. The potential, the possibilities — its only limit is the imagination of the developers working with it. And, well, if you're Katsuhiro Harada, head of the Tekken development team, then a virtual reality headset brings only one thing to mind: a schoolgirl. That's right, Summer...

Control The Tides of Battle With Bladestorm: The Hundred Year War & Nightmare on PS4

You and what army

We've heard fans voice their complaints on the forums that there aren't enough real time strategy games on the PlayStation 4, and it seems Koei Tecmo was thinking the same thing with the announcement of Bladestorm: The Hundred Year War and Nightmare. Coming before the end of 2014 in Japan, it's the sequel to the franchise that...

Get Your First Look at Dead of Alive 5: Last Round on PS4 Right Here, Right Now

Let's rock

It was only yesterday we reported that Dead or Alive 5: Last Round was making the jump to Sony's next-gen console, and now we've got the official trailer to prove it. Admittedly, it's only a short video, but if you're interested, chances are that you've already played one of the game's many incarnations on the PlayStation 3. Even so,...

A Brand New Everybody's Golf Title Will Be Teeing Up on PS4

PlayStation fore

During its pre-TGS conference this morning, Sony announced that it will be bringing a new Everybody's Golf game to the PlayStation 4. The long-running franchise - known as Hot Shots Golf in North America - is renowned for its lighthearted take on the traditionally serious sport. Speaking during the presser, affable executive Shuhei...

Get Your Hands Dirty With Yakuza Zero's PS4 Gameplay Trailer

Blast from the past

Sega was ready to tease us with more than just pictures of Yakuza Zero during Sony's pre-Tokyo Game Show conference earlier today. Coming to the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 during Spring 2015 in Japan, the title's set prior to the events of the first game. Staring a fresh faced Kazuma Kiryu who's working his way up the...

Disgaea 5 Brings Tense and Tough Tactics to Japanese PS4s in 2015

Wait your turn

If you feel like the PlayStation 4 is a bit lacking when it comes to tactical RPGs, never fear, as the always solid Disgaea franchise will soon be hitting Sony's super system. Officially announced during the platform holder's pre-TGS conference, there is very little known about the new title, except that it exists. However, we did...

Dragon Quest Meets Dynasty Warriors in PS4's Dragon Quest Heroes

Musou for life

It seems like an eternity since we had a Dragon Quest game on a PlayStation platform, but that's all changing next year — in Japan, at least. Announced at Sony's pre-Tokyo Game Show conference earlier today, Dragon Quest Heroes is a collaboration between Square Enix and Omega Force — the developer behind the Warriors games. In...

God Eater 2: Rage Burst Will, Er, Burst onto The PS4 and Vita in Japan

Everybody calm down

In the middle of a rather packed Tokyo Game Show pre-conference this morning, Sony announced that upgraded port God Eater 2: Rage Burst will be coming to the PlayStation 4 and Vita in Japan. While it's still a little unclear how much of the game will be new, we think it's safe to assume that it will be similar to God Eater Burst,...

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...

Dead or Alive 5: Last Round is Smashing Its Way onto PS4

We know what you're thinking

Stop those dirty thoughts right this instant. Yes, Dead or Alive 5: Last Round is coming to the PlayStation 4, and no, we don't know if it'll feature, er, improved physics. The fighter's already gone through several incarnations on the PS3, but with a port to Sony's newest console, it should look better than ever, and...

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...

Watch as God of War Dev Santa Monica Studio Relocates to a Brand New Office

A new beginning

Whoever though that changing buildings could be such an emotional process? As you may recall, Sony Santa Monica - the studio behind the God of War series, as well as several other smaller delights - has been going through a bit of a transformation of late. First, the developer gave its logo a much needed redesign, and now it's moved...
