Patapon Army vs. Third Colossus Gaius

Round 19

The E3 rush is finally over, and so it's time for another instalment of Who Would Win Wednesdays, a feature where we take two PlayStation personalities and imagine them kicking the snot out of each other.

Producing perfection

Being a detective isn’t easy at the best of times, but we suspect that it’s a teensy bit more difficult when you’re dead. That’s the predicament that Ronan O’Connor faces in Murdered: Soul Suspect, the supernatural thriller from Square Enix. While ghosts are at the forefront of this week’s European PlayStation Store...

Neverland

Yes, feel free to point and laugh at us like The Simpsons character Nelson – we know that we’re extremely late.

What Are Your Favourite PlayStation Easter Eggs?

Sunny side up

We all know that Easter eggs are at their absolute best when they’re big, brown, and made out of chocolate. However, just because you can’t beat a sugary oval filled with Cadbury’s finest fondant, doesn’t mean that the tasty treats stashed inside video games aren’t also entertaining. We took a look back at 12 of the very...

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

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...
