So, the PSP Almost Matched the Vita's Sales in USA Last Month

The end is nigh

Step out of a New York subway station and you’ll no longer be greeted by a religious zealot with a sandwich board, but instead a dedicated handheld decrier. “Portable consoles are dead,” they’ll scream, pointing to pictures of the PlayStation Vita with a big red line drawn through it. And they may be right, as NPD data has...

Can You Believe That Sony Still Makes PlayStation Portables?

Probably not for much longer, though

Sony’s first foray into the handheld space endured a premature demise in the UK and North America, but up until recently, the PlayStation Portable remained a popular option in the platform holder’s native Japan. However, with the system’s successor the PlayStation Vita emerging as an increasingly viable...

Game of the Month: January 2014 - Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition

January 2014 - Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition

One more treasure for Lara

For once, January was a relatively quiet month here at Push Square in terms of reviews. With no real blockbusters bursting onto the PlayStation scene, last month's vote was always going to be a tricky one, as we had to round up titles that some of our staff had never even heard of. But as they say, the show must go on...

Streetkix Freestyle Aims to Kick the PSP Back into Life

Having a ball

It may no longer be Sony’s flagship handheld format, but that’s not stopping the PlayStation Portable from securing some new software this week.

Sony Slips Out of Profitability, Adjusts Annual Profits Forecast

Holding out for a Hirai

Sony’s brief period of profitability came to a cruel conclusion with its second quarter financial report earlier today, as it posted a net loss of ¥19.3 billion ($197 million) for the period spanning July to September.

Bat to the beginning

Much like its North American counterpart, this week’s European PlayStation Store update is similarly stacked with noteworthy content. Highlights include Batman: Arkham Origins, the re-release of Enslaved: Odyssey to the West, and God of War: Ascension. There’s also

25th September 2013 (Europe)

Alive and kicking

There’s plenty of meat on the latest European PlayStation Store update’s bones. In addition to FIFA 14 on virtually every platform under the sun, there’s also the overdue arrival of Ratchet: Gladiator to look forward to. Elsewhere, free-to-play brawler Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate: Core Fighters is on hand to keep you...

24th September 2013 (North America)

Spherical balls

There’s plenty of football on offer as part of this week’s North American PlayStation Store update – but not the kind that our friends over the Atlantic may expect. FIFA 14 and PES 2014: Pro Evolution Soccer are both out now, and that means that there’s nary a shoulder pad or helmet in sight. Other new additions include the...

Review: Elminage Original (PlayStation Portable)

Elminage Original (PlayStation Portable)

Classic dungeon crawling

Elminage Original harks back to the early days of dungeon crawlers. It's an RPG that revels in simplicity, yet cloaks it in a shroud of ill-explained character classes and nonlinear progression. It very much looks and feels like its 80s and 90s ancestors, such as the Wizardry series and early Dragon Quests. It imitates the...
