News: PSN Offline for Some as the Weekend Arrives

PSN Offline for Some as the Weekend Arrives

Down and out

That massive Flash Sale must have overwhelmed Sony's servers, as the PlayStation Network is currently offline. While we're seeing plenty of complaints around the web, not everyone here at Push Square Towers is affected, so hopefully this is a minor hiccup, rather than a full-scale outage.

Final Fantasy X's 'To Zanarkand' PS4 Theme Is One of the Best on PSN

Insert soft piano music here

An iconic piece of Final Fantasy history, Final Fantasy X's opening cutscene still sends shivers up the spines of many, over a decade after its initial release. As the memorable To Zanarkand tune twinkles along in the background, main character Tidus gets up and walks away from a campfire, while the rest of the party...

Store Update: 15th April 2015 (Europe)

15th April 2015 (Europe)

Meet your murderer

Consider this a catch-up edition of the weekly European PlayStation Store update. Yes, the likes of Mortal Kombat X may be headlining, but it's long overdue titles such as Costume Quest 2 and Home that caught our eye. Both of these released in North America many months ago, so it's nice to see SCEE finally back up to date. Now,...

14th April 2015 (North America)

Late to the party

We may be late posting the North American PlayStation Store update – but that doesn't mean that the content's changed. Your interest in this article may have, however, so we're pondering whether it's worth putting any effort into this pre-amble at all. In fact, we could probably post this video of a slipping Buckingham Palace...

Second go

If you've already got the Platinum Trophy in Bloodborne like our very own Dan Carter (!!!), then you may be looking for a new challenge. Fortunately, the fine folks over at Bandai Namco have brought forward the release of Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin, and it's part of this week's meaty PlayStation Store update. Also up for grabs...

Super mother lode

Another week, another absolutely enormous North American PlayStation Store update. The fiscal year ain't over yet we guess, so you can look forward to the likes of Axiom Verge, MLB 15 The Show, and, er, Run Sackboy! Run!. C'mon now – don't get pretending like you weren't excited for that one. PS4 Games: Axiom Verge (Cross Buy...

Is PSN Down in Europe? You'll Be Able to Find Out for Yourself Soon

Thanks Sony

Just the other week, North America got its very own PlayStation Network status page, which allows users to check whether or not the service is fully up and running.

Poll: What Do You Think of the New PSN Logo?

What Do You Think of the New PSN Logo?

Iconic pop

Those darned PlayStation Network outage articles have clearly left Sony scarred, as it's done away with the service's old logo. For the past ten or so years, it's employed the purple sphere symbol, but today's batch of firmware updates rendered the icon obsolete. You'll now find a much more contemporary circle on your PlayStation 4,...

Social gaming

25th March 2015 (Europe)

Take your pick

We want to draw attention to all of the other good stuff on the PlayStation Store this week, but let's be honest: Bloodborne's the one that's going to be getting the majority of you hot under the collar. That's not to say that there's a shortage of content elsewhere, of course, with new Life Is Strange and Game of Thrones episodes out...
