Arya sure?

SingStar Frozen to Let It Go on PS4, PS3

Cool stuff

You know that you’re getting old when you haven’t got a clue what kids are into anymore, and the chilling success of Frozen has somewhat passed this editor by.

Review: Crash Bandicoot (PSone)

Crash Bandicoot (PSone)

Marsupial madness

At one time, Crash Bandicoot was the face of the PlayStation brand, but through licensing headaches and the creation of other characters, the spunky star hasn’t quite gone on to fill the role of Nintendo’s Mario or Microsoft’s Master Chief. However, the hero’s titular game remains a signature PlayStation classic that served...

You'll Be Seeing More of The Order: 1886 and Bloodborne at The Game Awards

The Keigh to success

It's going to be a big week for news here at Push Square, with two major events looming large enough on the horizon to make our news team collectively shake in its boots.

Rumour: Sony's About to Get Really Aggressive in China

Sony's About to Get Really Aggressive in China

Business development
