  • Store Update 30th September 2014 (North America)

    Lord of the updates

    Yes, the holiday rush has arrived. This week’s North American PlayStation Store update is so big, we’re not entirely sure if the online plaza will be able to cope with it all. In addition to heavy hitters such as Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor and Persona 4 Arena Ultimax, there are also biggies like Sherlock Holmes: Crimes...

    Ballin'

    No prizes for guessing the biggest new release on the European PlayStation Store this week – it’s FIFA 15. EA Sports’ soccer sim will deploy at various points over the coming days depending on where you live, so check your local release schedule for more information. It’s joined this week by a handful of hot arrivals, including the...

  • Store Update 23rd September 2014 (North America)

    Back of the net

    We’ll resist the temptation to overload Push Square’s homepage with thumbnails of football players, so instead we’ll focus on some of the other games that are joining FIFA 15 on the PlayStation Store this week. Top mentions include Ar Nosurge: Ode to an Unborn Star, Flockers, and CastleStorm: Definitive Edition – but we’ll...

  • News Destiny Servers Go Offline as the Group Who Took Down the PSN Strike Again

    What are you playing this weekend?

    Here we go again. The infamous Lizard Squad group are apparently taking credit for attacking Destiny's servers, using DDoS attacks to cut players' connections to the game. If you were planning on blasting through the sci-fi shooter this weekend with some friends, it's certainly not an ideal situation. Developer...

    There’s nothing quite as exciting as the weekly PlayStation Store update, so we’re back to give you a cheeky taste of what’s coming to North America this coming Tuesday. The highlight for many will undoubtedly be FIFA 15, which, alongside Madden NFL 15, appears to be EA’s only real heavy hitter of the...

    Perhaps in an attempt to celebrate the Singapore Grand Prix, Sony has launched a racing game flash sale on the North American PlayStation Store.

  • Store Update 17th September 2014 (Europe)

    What the Flock?

    It’s a huge week on the PlayStation Store for fans of less high profile games. Many of you may still be busy searching for legendary loot in Destiny, but if Bungie’s next big thing didn’t tickle your fancy, why not give Anomaly 2, KickBeat, or Flockers a try? Interesting aside: Plants vs. Zombi

    Back to business

    The latest North American PlayStation Store update is a real humdinger, so we’re shunning the slow coach that we used last week, and jumping aboard a Concorde to bring you the full lineup this time. Highlights include strategy title Anomaly 2, endless runner, er, Run Like Hell, and weird-‘em-up

    Balloon fright

    Murasaki Baby made this typically composed critic want to toss his figurative toys out of the pram, and that’s never a good sign.

  • Game of the Month August 2014 - Metro Redux

    Tunnel of love

    It's Game of the Month time once again here at Push Square, and what a busy month for games it was in August.

Back in July, we crowned The Last of Us Remastered as the best release of the Summer month,...

Contrary to what PlayStation France said in the early hours of the morning, Minecraft on PS4 is nowhere to be found in today's European PlayStation Store update. Still, it has to be close, and...

The statistic is actually rather impressive when you stop to think about it. It was only at Gamescom that

As those of you that are familiar with the series will already know, this second set of episodes puts you...
