  • News Katch Gravity Rush PS4 a Week Early

    Free fallin'

    The apple will fall from the tree a little earlier than expected in Europe, as Sony has announced that Gravity Rush Remastered will now release on 2nd February for the PlayStation 4. The platform holder previously revealed that the Vita port would be available from 10th February in the Old World, but it clearly couldn't wait to put it...

  • News Which December PlayStation Plus Games Do You Desire?

    Instant Game Collection anticipation

    Time flies when you're having fun, doesn't it? It doesn't feel like that long since we all bemoaned November's big PlayStation Plus update, but we're expecting Sony to announce December's offering next week, with a release likely to follow on 1st December. The question is: what kind of content do you want?...

  • News PS4 Hit Bloodborne Is Shuhei Yoshida's Pick for Game of the Year

    Praise the moon

    We've started talking about Game of the Year here at Push Square Towers, but we're keeping our plans under wraps for the time being. Geoff Keighley's annual Game Awards ceremony is mere weeks away at this point, though, and we already know the nominees for the most prestigio

  • Feature 5 Reasons the Life of a PS4 Player Is Wonderful

    Playing in wonderland

    Contrary to the brand new commercial, PlayStation 4 players don't dance around their memorabilia laden house to the sound of The Chemical Brothers – it's a lifestyle that we could only dream of. Living with Sony's new-gen system is a step forward from its predecessors, though, and we think that that's what the company is...

  • News Prepare for Your Bandwidth to Die with Big Bloodborne Patch

    9.37GB update attacks your ISP

    It's nice to be talking about Bloodborne again, isn't it? There's always a worry that games that launch earlier in the year get forgotten by the end, but Sony couldn't have timed the title's Old Hunters expansion any better if it wanted the release to win a few awards. And with the add-on now just days away, it's also...

  • News PS2 Games Are Coming to the PS4, Sony Confirms

    Live in your world, play in ours

    That didn't take long, did it? After yesterday's reports, Sony has told Wired that PlayStation 2 games are coming to the PlayStation 4 via emulation. However, while the firm confirmed the feature, it stopped short of sharing any specific details. "We have nothing further to comment at this point in time." See you...

  • News Naughty Dog: Uncharted: Golden Abyss PS4 Not Out of the Question

    Buried treasure

    Uncharted: Golden Abyss, the not-bad black sheep in the exclusive series, could yet come to the PlayStation 4. In an interview with Australian website Finder.com, community strategist Arne Meyer explained that a port of the Vita launch title is "not out of the question" – but ultimately it's not up to Naughty Dog whether it...

  • Talking Point Which PS2 Games Would You Play on PS4?

    The third place

    Assuming a report on Digital Foundry is accurate, you may already have a PlayStation 2 emulator inside your PlayStation 4. The site tested the trio of new Star Wars games that are available as part of the firm's special edition Darth

  • News PlayStation 2 Emulation All But Confirmed for PS4

    And it sounds awesome

    Back when Sony revealed that the Darth Vader PlayStation 4 bundle would include three Star Wars games from the PlayStation 2 era, we assumed that they'd be getting the remaster treatment. While there have been many rumours regarding PS2 emulation on the new-gen system, the promise of Trophy support and improved visuals led us...

  • News Beyond: Two Souls Ghosts to PS4 Next Week

    Aiden know whether to buy it

    David Cage's uneven but interesting adventure Beyond: Two Souls is set to explore the otherworld on PlayStation 4 next week. Available from 24th November in North America and 26th November in Europe, the ambitious escapade will boast a bunch of improvements over its PlayStation 3 brother, including heavily enhanced...

  • News This PS4 Bundle Is for Everyone That Skipped the PS3

    Welcome to the family

    Well, this is… Awkward. Sony's been chastised by many armchair pundits for putting too many resources into remasters – but this new European 1TB PlayStation 4 bundle comes with three of them. It looks like a bad joke at first blush, but the platform holder's clearly looking to capture non-PlayStation 3 owners with this...

  • News PS4 Smashes Two Million Sales Milestone in Japan

    System selling steady overseas

    The perception among gamers is that the PlayStation 4 is flopping in Japan, but while it's certainly not firing on all cylinders in the Eastern nation, it's still doing reasonably well. Today's big Media Create update has revealed that the console has now crossed two million sales in Sony's home territory, which is a...

  • News Prepare to Die with Fresh European PS4 Deals

    Soul searcher

    If you're not exactly feeling the festive cheer yet, then perhaps you may enjoy indulging your masochistic side with Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin, which has been discounted this week on the European PlayStation Store. The punishing but popular game will be available for £19.99 until 25th November, which is cheaper than on...

  • News Sony Reacts to Pleas for Gravity Rush PS4 Retail Release

    Kataclysm

    Credit where credit's due: Sony does listen to what you have to say. There was mild uproar in the PlayStation Nation when SCEA revealed that Gravity Rush Remastered would not be getting a retail release in North America. However, a physical edition popped up for pr

  • News A Huge Happy Birthday to the PS4 on Its Second Birthday

    Party like it's 2013

    Much like a nipper, the PlayStation 4 has been walking the walk for a while, but on its second birthday, it's starting to talk the talk, too. For those of you that don't remember, on this day two years ago, Sony's new-gen system launched in North America. The rest of the world was made to wait a couple of weeks as the Japanese...

  • News PS4 Exclusives Dominate The Game Awards' Most Wanted

    2016 shaping up to be stellar

    Despite the brilliant Bloodborne still being the highest rated exclusive of the year, there's been some dissatisfaction with the PlayStation 4's exclusive offerings since launch. Next year looks set to change that perception once and for all, though, as Sony has assembled a dizzying roster of first-party software –...

  • News Expect More PS4 Games from Naughty Dog After Uncharted 4

    Well, duh

    At the time of typing, the PlayStation 4 is days away from its second birthday. For some reason, though, people are already looking ahead to the next generation. Apparently, there's a concern that Naughty Dog may not have enough time to put another title on the system once Uncharted 4: A Thief's End is done and dusted. It seems like...

  • News Microsoft Parodies PS4's Infamous Game Sharing Video

    5/10

    In backward compatibility, Microsoft's finally got an Xbox One feature that it can shout about it – and it's sure trying its hardest to make a bit of noise. In a new video on the organisation's UK YouTube account, the company has parodied Sony's famous PlayStation 4 game sharing video – although the punch line isn't quite as well executed...

  • News Expect Surprise PS4 Games at PlayStation Experience 2015

    Far Cry Primal! New Hot Shots Golf! Dark Souls III!

    Sony's revealed the lineup of software that will be playable at PlayStation Experience 2015 – but it's still keeping a few titles secret. The list of games is absolutely gigantic, with some unexpected inclusions like New Hot Shots Golf, Resident Evil: Umbrella Corps, and Far Cry Primal. This is...

  • Talking Point Should Sony Build an Elite DualShock 4 Controller for PS4?

    A more joyful joystick

    The announcement of the Xbox One Elite controller at E3 2015 was met with furrowed brows here at Push Square Towers. It wasn't that we thought the controller looked bad – far from it – but we felt that peripherals are already outrageously priced on both new-gen consoles, so who would ever stump up $149.99 for a single...

  • News Is This the Most Glorious PS Vita Design Yet?

    Cor, slimey

    One story that's gone under the radar a little bit is the success of Minecraft: PS Vita Edition in Japan. The game's barely left the Media Create charts since its launch, and has sold almost 400k copies on the handheld in Sony's home nation. There's a market for "building" games in the East, then – and the upcoming Dragon Quest...

  • News You're Going to Want This Gravity Rush PS4 Theme

    Well jel

    Gravity Rush is coming to the PlayStation 4, which is outstanding news. The only downside is that we have to wait until next year in the West to enjoy Kat's remastered adventure, while Japan can look forward to turning Auldnoir upside down in less than a month. And to make matters even worse, those that pre-order in the Eastern region...

  • Rumour Is Sony Bend's PS4 Exclusive Being Readied for PlayStation Experience?

    Better believe it

    The assumption among PlayStation fans is that Sony Bend's unannounced PlayStation 4 exclusive will be revealed at PlayStation Experience next month – and senior technical game designer Eric Jensen may have added a little more fuel to that fire. Writing on Twitter overnight, the veteran employee said: "Hotel booked for PSX. It's...

  • News Friends Pull Together to Buy Burgled Buddy a PS4

    Heart warming

    Being burgled is never a good thing, but it's even worse on the eve of Fallout 4. Sadly, that's exactly what happened to the New Zealander in the video embedded below – but fortunately he's got good friends. After being tricked by his mates into taking a trip to a local electronics store, the barefooted bros announce that they've all...

  • News Watch One of the Stars of Until Dawn Play, Er, Until Dawn

    Dalton tries not to die

    Until Dawn has been one of 2015's biggest sleeper hits, and has proved particularly popular on sites like Twitch. While it's been fun seeing how random people react to the title's many jump scares, though, IGN has managed to convince star Brett Dalton (Mike) to play through a chunk of it on YouTube – and this is the first...

  • News Tour London with Nathan Drake as Your Guide

    Greatness from small beginnings

    There's lots to see and do in London – but the English capital's way better when Nathan Drake's your guide. Three's partnered with Sony to create an "innovative, real-life adventure" whereby various landmarks across the city have been tagged with Nolan North audio clips. With the use of a unique smartphone app,...

  • Weirdness After 40 Years, Sony's Finally Killing Off Betamax

    Cassette decked

    Here's one for our younger readers: before Netflix there were DVDs, and before DVDs there were VHS tapes. But before all of that, in 1975, there were Betamax cassettes. Sony created these as a means to record and playback video, but while the format was considered superior in some regards, it lost a very fierce war against JVC's...

  • News PS4 Firmware Update 3.11 Stabilises Your System

    Stable as a table

    Well then, we haven't had one of these for a while. Sony's rolled out a new firmware update for the PlayStation 4, which is mandatory. The update – numbered v3.11 for those keeping count – offers nothing other than system software stability, but you will need to download it if you want to connect to the PlayStation Network...

  • News PlayStation's Indie Evangelist to Exit Organisation

    Shahid Ahmad leaving after ten years

    Shahid Ahmad has become one of the faces of PlayStation over the past few years – but after a decade working at the company, he's set to embark on a new adventure. The industry veteran served as one of the key figures in SCEE's Strategic Content division, securing titles such as Super Crate Box all the way...

  • Weirdness PS4 Perv Slaps the Salami Over System in Store

    #4TheFappers

    We all like to twiddle our joysticks for entertainment – but when it comes to the PlayStation 4, the majority of us have our hands firmly on the DualShock 4. One saucy shopper had a very different piece of equipment between his fingers, though – as he was caught choking the chicken in front of the console in an electronics store...

  • News Proof PS4 Will Go Below $300 on Black Friday Mounts

    GameStop joins the party

    Pull out your happening GIFs and start counting your cents: the PlayStation 4 will almost certainly go below $300 on Black Friday 2015. Following on from Meijer's leaked flyer, GameStop has now prematurely confirmed that Sony's system will be available for $299.99 with a copy of Uncharted: The

  • News Blimey, Sony's Publishing Helldivers on the PC

    Hell freezes over

    Well, this is potentially huge news: Sony's bringing Helldivers to the PC. The game, which launched as a PlayStation exclusive earlier in the year, will be published by a company called PlayStation Mobile, Inc on the popular plaza. This is a division within SCE that has handled various smartphone spin-offs in the past, too. This...

  • News Sony Not Looking to Profit with PlayStation VR Hardware

    Will make money elsewhere

    Here's some good news for PlayStation VR: Sony has suggested that it's not looking to profit on the initial hardware launch. We've been saying for a while now that if the headset has any shot at succeeding, the platform holder needs to eat the cost on the peripheral – and that's exactly what Worldwide Studios president...

  • News Looks Like PS4 Will Be Going Below $300 on Black Friday

    Greatness awaits

    Sony only just dropped the price of the PlayStation 4, but it looks like the platform holder's planning to play limbo on Black Friday. A leaked Meijer flyer has revealed that the retailer will be selling the new-gen system with Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection for $299.99 – and should you brave the crowds, you'll even get...

  • News PS4 Is Reeling in First-Person Shooter Fans, Says Sony

    Switching sides

    While games like Call of Duty always sold well on the PlayStation 3, it was never truly considered the home of the franchise. A combination of the controller and PlayStation Network really prevented Sony from making any meaningful in-roads in the first-person shooter space. The platform holder has made it a mission to change that...

  • News Sony Ain't Shying Away from Third-Party Partnerships on PS4

    Stronger first-party offering won't change tactics

    Sony's made up for a less than impressive first-party showing in 2015 by partnering with third-party publishers, and the strategy's worked a treat. This month alone the platform holder's threatening to run away with the holidays, thanks to exclusive PlayStation 4 bundles for Call of Duty: Black...

  • News We Wished Our PS4 Life Was This Wonderful

    Here to make you go

    Life in Push Square Towers revolves around sifting through the shite in press releases and proof reading dozens of articles a day, so we're definitely jealous of this particular PlayStation 4 player's daily routine. Sony's new European TV ad is absolutely crammed with brand references, with everything from Street Fighter V to...

  • News PlayStation Plus Subscribers Score Sweet EU PS4 Savings

  • News Dozens of Korean Developers Join the PS4 Party

    Play and peace

    Sony hosted another press conference overnight – but this one definitely wasn't intended for the Western market. The show, held in Busan prior to the G-Star convention, was designed to showcase all of the Korean titles in development for the PlayStation 4. And as is evident from the trailer embedded below, there's a lot for local...

  • News Er, Avatars Are Coming to the PS4's PlayStation Store Next Week

    Yay?

    If we were Sony, we wouldn't have publicised this. Almost two years after the system's launch, you'll be able to buy non-stock avatars from the PlayStation 4 version of the PlayStation Store. Embarrassingly, these icons could only be purchased from the PlayStation 3 edition of the PlayStation Store previously. Absolutely mental, eh? The good...

  • News Your PlayStation Plus Freebies for November Are Out Now

    Bandwidth busters

    It may not be the greatest lineup in PlayStation Plus history, but if you're looking for something new to play, then November's free titles are available in Europe right now. Those of you in North America will have to wait a little while longer for SCEA to catch up, but we expect the Instant Game Collection to update later today...

  • News Sony Doesn't Want to Show You Too Much of The Last Guardian

    It'll spoil it, apparently

    The Last Guardian has gone dark again. The game was re-revealed to a rapturous response at E3 2015, but it was absent at both the Tokyo Game Show and Paris Games Week. This, according to Sony Worldwide Studios boss Shuhei Yoshida, is nothing to worry about – the platform holder's just limiting the title's showings...

  • Feature Push Square's PGW 2015 Game of the Show - Detroit: Become Human

    Quantic dreaming

    David Cage divides opinion like no other developer. When the French auteur took to Sony's slick Paris Games Week 2015 stage earlier this week, the Push Square press conference live chat was awash with cheers and jeers. Some feel that the French director – who's helmed titles like Heavy Rain and Beyond: Two Souls – is...

    Lombax to the future

    Well, this is a sight for sore eyes – Pokitaru's looking absolutely stunning in Ratchet & Clank on the PlayStation 4. The sunny seaside settlement was one of the more memorable locations from the original game, and developer Insomniac Games has done a great job repurposing it for Sony's new-gen system. We see some awesome...
