News: There Are Still More PlayStation Press Conferences to Come

There Are Still More PlayStation Press Conferences to Come

Even more PS4 and Vita announcements incoming

You didn’t think that Sony’s big Gamescom 2014 press conference represented the last of the year, did you? As you should already have learned by now, the Japanese giant loves a good livestream, and, as such, it’s set to host another one on 1st September ahead of the Tokyo Game Show. This same...

PlayStation Boss Gets Punished for All of E3's Boring Bits This Year

This is for Powers

Regardless of whether or not you liked the content, Sony’s big Gamescom 2014 press conference was much better paced than its E3 2014 one. The folks at SCEE cut out all of the fat, and peppered the organisation’s media briefing in Cologne with trailers, announcements, and very little corporate gobbledygook. SCEA boss Shawn...

PS4 Live Streams Are About to Get a Lot More Interesting

Potentially, anyway

It’s not always easy for a company to predict how consumers will decide to use a particular product, and The Playroom on the PlayStation 4 will definitely have raised a few eyebrows when it started to get used – and, in some instances, abused – by next-gen early adopters. However, recognising the swell of demand for live...

UK Sales Charts: PS4 Exclusive The Last of Us Remastered Endures Another Week

"We are survivors, Tess"

There’s so little change in this week’s UK sales chart that we considered skipping it entirely and digging straight into the good stuff. That wouldn’t be especially professional, though, would it? As such, here’s your weekly British best sellers report: The Last of Us Remastered is still on top. The exclusive title...

Gamescom 2014: Half of Tearaway Unfolded's Content Will Be Brand New on PS4

Half of Tearaway Unfolded's Content Will Be Brand New on PS4

Paper cut

Tearaway Unfolded is a bit of a strange, papery proposition. Presented during Sony’s big Gamescom 2014 press conference as a kind of adaptation for the PlayStation 4, it wasn’t entirely clear whether it will boast brand new content or the exact same puzzles and areas as its PlayStation Vita predecessor. Now, an IGN report straight...

Gamescom 2014: Cringe Through Over 20 Minutes of PS4 Exclusive Until Dawn

Cringe Through Over 20 Minutes of PS4 Exclusive Until Dawn

Avoid if you've got a heart condition

Heavy Rain was packed with some pretty cringe-inducing moments, but they weren’t exactly intentional. In the upcoming PlayStation 4 exclusive Until Dawn, developer Supermassive Games has set out to create an experience inspired by dodgy slasher teen movies – and on the evidence of this 20 minute showing,...

Weirdness: You Did Not Want to Look at PlayStation's Twitch Channel Last Night

You Did Not Want to Look at PlayStation's Twitch Channel Last Night

Think of the children

Trolls are an unfortunate part of the Internet, and something that we all have to learn to deal with. However, filtering out a few comments is easy – but avoiding offensive streams on Twitch is not. Overnight, hackers managed to compromise PlayStation’s official broadcasting account, essentially leading to the creation of...

You'll Be Able to Make Trailers for Your Levels in LittleBigPlanet 3

All through the power of share

Sackboy may have had his nose pushed out a little bit this week due to the announcement of dozens of other PlayStation 4 games, but he’s been waiting patiently for us to provide a little update on, er, LittleBigPlanet 3. So, here we are: it’s looking like a real step forward for the series, partly due to the...

Here's Why I Will Be Playing Journey on PS4

With hopes of starting over

I understand where Polygon scribe Colin Campbell is coming from when he says that he won’t be playing the recently announced PlayStation 4 conversion of thatgamecompany’s seminal spiritual adventure, Journey. Like the author in question, I too haven’t booted the game since a gloomy morning in

Feature: How Many PlayStation Predictions Did We Get Correct at Gamescom 2014?

How Many PlayStation Predictions Did We Get Correct at Gamescom 2014?

Keeping score

One thing that we’ve always been keen to maintain here at Push Square Towers is that our predictions always remain realistic. Every site under the sun likes to make a press conference prophecy prior to a big gaming convention – after all, the build up is a large part of the fun – but we’ve never been a fan of those misleading...

Gamescom 2014: The Last Guardian Still Exists, But You Won't Be Seeing It Anytime Soon

The Last Guardian Still Exists, But You Won't Be Seeing It Anytime Soon

The saga continues

It wouldn't be a major videogame industry event without a Sony executive making an offhand remark about The Last Guardian. This time, vice president of Sony Worldwide Studios Europe Michael Denny was on hand to make sure that we know the title is still very much a part of the Japanese giant's long term strategy. "There are no new...

Gamescom 2014: How Does PS4 Firmware Update 2.00's Share Play Feature Work?

How Does PS4 Firmware Update 2.00's Share Play Feature Work?

Honestly, like magic

To date, the social aspects of the PlayStation 4 have all been based upon existing concepts. Placing the share button on the DualShock 4 was undoubtedly a stroke of genius, but there’s nothing especially original about uploading gameplay clips to Facebook or broadcasting live on Twitch. However, with firmware update v2.00,...

Gamescom 2014: Rockstar Wants Grand Theft Auto V PS4 to Blow You Away

Rockstar Wants Grand Theft Auto V PS4 to Blow You Away

"Nothing but the very best will satisfy Rockstar"

Grand Theft Auto V was no slouch on the PlayStation 3. The title had its visual flaws for sure, but it still largely pushed the boundaries of what’s possible on Sony’s previous generation machine. However, the PlayStation 4 port will take things to the next level – and Take-Two boss Strauss...

Gamescom 2014: PS4 Titles to Take Centre Stage at the Tokyo Game Show

PS4 Titles to Take Centre Stage at the Tokyo Game Show

Japanese centric software a very important point

Sony’s shifting PlayStation 4 consoles at a record breaking rate, but in Japan, the format is a bit of a flop right now. That’s because, unlike in Europe and North America, the market doesn’t feel that there’s enough content to justify its existence, which means that it’s getting heavily...
