Video: Rewatch Sony's Best Ever E3 Press Conference Right Here

Rewatch Sony's Best Ever E3 Press Conference Right Here

An hour and a half of wonder

Isn't it a great time of the year to be Push Square's resident video person? E3 leaks footage like nothing else in gaming, but the highlights are obviously the publisher press conferences. This year's Los Angeles expo was home to what we have dubbed Sony's best ever presser, and your humble host has embedded it in this...

E3 2015: Bizarre PS4 Exclusive The Tomorrow Children Blasts Off in Autumn 

Bizarre PS4 Exclusive The Tomorrow Children Blasts Off in Autumn 

Tomorrow Never Dies

The Tomorrow Children is one of the PlayStation 4's strangest exclusives, and a classic example of how the Japanese giant is committed to supporting totally unique experiences. Unique being the strongly operative word here, though, as we're still not entirely sure what the game is actually about. At any rate, the tantalizing...

E3 2015: Almost Half PS4 Owners Never Had a PS3

Almost Half PS4 Owners Never Had a PS3

Changing minds

At this point, we can probably all accept that the PlayStation 3 had problems. It was ultimately a great console, don't get us wrong – but Sony really misfired with the architecture and price, prompting it to lose ground against a very aggressive Xbox 360. With the PlayStation 4, however, the Japanese giant's got back to its...

E3 2015: Sony's Been Borrowing Ideas from Oculus, Says Yoshida

Sony's Been Borrowing Ideas from Oculus, Says Yoshida

Both products will be launching "very, very soon"

Sony's biggest fear for Project Morpheus isn't that it will be outdone by the Oculus Rift; rather, the company is more concerned that virtual reality may never catch on. That's according to Shuhei Yoshida, the president of Sony's Worldwide Studios, who spoke to Polygon earlier today. "We know each...

News: The Batman: Arkham Knight PS4 Is Particularly Pretty

The Batman: Arkham Knight PS4 Is Particularly Pretty

Slick in silver

Some of the official custom PlayStation 4 consoles have been pretty bad if you ask this author, but the Batman: Arkham Knight one bucks that trend. Sony's deployed an unboxing for the brand new bundle, and while it's a little overproduced, it should sell you on the system if you've been sitting indecisively on the fence. We've...

E3 2015: PS4 Exclusive Dreams Is More Flexible Than LittleBigPlanet

PS4 Exclusive Dreams Is More Flexible Than LittleBigPlanet

Play, create, share

What is Dreams? Media Molecule isn't really telling us a whole lot about the PlayStation 4 exclusive right now, but Shuhei Yoshida has answers. Chatting on a GameSpot stream with the Kinda Funny crew, the Worldwide Studios president delved into a little more detail about the mysterious project – and promised more information...

Round Up: Your Ultimate Guide to All of E3 2015's Biggest News, Trailers, and Announcements

Your Ultimate Guide to All of E3 2015's Biggest News, Trailers, and Announcements

What a week that was

Can you believe it? E3 2015 just about done after almost a solid week of hectic coverage. For us, it's time for a break, but for you, the next couple of weeks are going to seem decidedly drab in comparison - perhaps even boring. Still, this year's Los Angeles-based expo proved to be well worth the fuss, granting us five big...

E3 2015: Nintendo Doesn't Have High Hopes for Project Morpheus

Nintendo Doesn't Have High Hopes for Project Morpheus

"It's not fun"

Make no mistake, virtual reality is big at this year's E3. Sony may have cunningly glossed over Project Morpheus during its press conference, but it's pushing the headset in its booth in a big way. In fact, with even Microsoft joining the race in various different ways, Nintendo's the only current console maker to not have something...

E3 2015: What's Going on with Gravity Rush 2?

What's Going on with Gravity Rush 2?

Come, come, kitty, kitty

Gravity Rush is one of this author's favourite new franchises of the past five years. Kat's inaugural outing on the PlayStation Vita may not have been perfect, but it had enough personality and gameplay nuance to make it a property worth investing in. It's a shame, then, that following the announcement of a sequel a few...

Weirdness: Man Arrested for Robbery with DualShock 2

Man Arrested for Robbery with DualShock 2

Sigh

While we were all getting giddy over The Last Guardian, one Brazilian man was attempting a robbery – with a DualShock 2. The perpetrator – arrested for the second time in four months – was caught wielding a cordless PlayStation 2 controller, pretending that it was a weapon. He was also found to be in possession of stolen money and a...

E3 2015: Dreams Is Clearly PS4's Craziest Exclusive Ever

Dreams Is Clearly PS4's Craziest Exclusive Ever

Dream a dream

Dreams is the kind of game that, truthfully, you'd only ever find on a PlayStation platform. The fact that Sony has allowed Media Molecule to spend the past four or so years working on a title that can't even be easily explained is a testament to the creativity that courses through the company as a whole. Still, it would be nice to...

E3 2015: The Last Guardian Explores the Relationship Between People and Animals

The Last Guardian Explores the Relationship Between People and Animals

Based Ueda

Love it or loathe it, games like The Last Guardian just don't get made. This a blockbuster title in every sense of word, and it clearly has a colossal budget behind it. So, in a year where Ubisoft's big reveal was a Ghost Recon reboot that looked almost identical to its still-in-development The Division, it's refreshing to learn about...

News: Sony: Backward Compatibility Is a Requested Feature, But Not Greatly Used

Sony: Backward Compatibility Is  a Requested Feature, But Not Greatly Used

That's one angle

Sony has no plans to add backward compatibility to the PlayStation 4, as it doesn't believe that the feature is particularly greatly used. Speaking with MCV at E3 2015, SCEE gaffer Jim Ryan explained that the Japanese giant has opted to invest its resources into other areas of its console – even though it admits that the Xbox...
