Rumour: PS4 Interface Images Show Folders, Improved Trophy Notifications, and More

PS4 Interface Images Show Folders, Improved Trophy Notifications, and More

Sadly, they're probably fake

There’s nothing like a good ol’ fashioned leak to shake you out of a groggy Sunday morning. In truth, this looks fake, so don’t expect it to be officially unveiled at Gamescom 2014 next week – but we kind of wished that it would be. The shots show an enhanced PlayStation 4 user interface, including folders,...

Can't Find a Multiplayer Match in The Last of Us on PS4? This Patch Should Help

Netcode remastered

Naughty Dog may have plotted an almost flawless transition to the PlayStation 4, but it did mess up one aspect of The Last of Us in converting it to Sony’s next-gen console. Since launch, there have been many complaints regarding the title’s multiplayer matchmaking, which functions, but, well, not as well as it should. In...

Music Management Sim BigFest Will Also Headline on PS4

Next-gen encore

We thought that PlayStation Vita music management simulation BigFest was taking an extraordinarily long time to develop – but now we know why. Sony XDev Europe has taken to the PlayStation Blog to confirm that the title – which sees you run a Glastonbury-esque festival from hiring the bands to placing the porta potties – will...

What Does PlayStation Vita Firmware Update 3.18 Do?

As if you need telling

There’ll be no danger of your PlayStation Vita ever tumbling off your coffee table again, as Sony has released a new stability update for the diminutive device. Available right now – and mandatory, we’re afraid – the patch doesn’t appear to change anything about the handheld’s user experience. Speculation...

Something's Coming in Sony's Second Gamescom 2014 Teaser of the Day

An axe to grind

Sony’s in full on hype mode ahead of its Gamescom 2014 press conference next week – it’s just a shame that it’s releasing some pretty poor promotional trailers to lead into the event. Alright, this one isn’t anywhere near as bad as this afternoon’s hypnotherapy session, but two teasers in one day is probably a little bit...

Sony's Gamescom 2014 Teaser Trailers Are Getting Worse

Is this some kind of hypnotherapy?

With the games industry getting ready to descend upon Germany ahead of next week’s Gamescom 2014 convention, Sony is starting to hype up its annual media briefing. A few days ago it deployed a teaser trailer for what appeared to be Until Dawn, but now it’s gone with something a little more vanilla to count down...

Sony: We Want to Make PS4 Players Feel Special

All part of being the best place to play

Sony wants you to feel special for selecting the PlayStation 4 over the handful of other systems on the market. Cheery third-party chief Adam Boyes revealed the tidbit in an interview with Game Informer magazine, pointing to the platform holder’s co-marketing partnership with Bungie’s first-person shooter...

Feature: What Went Wrong with PlayStation Mobile?

What Went Wrong with PlayStation Mobile?

Totally immobile

Sony’s smartphone strategy seemed so, well, smart a few years ago. While the PlayStation Vita was flagging, the format holder appeared to have a long-term plan in PlayStation Mobile – a compartmentalised plaza offering semi-curated content on PlayStation-certified platforms. The idea was to step away from the poor quality...

You'll Need to Take Out a Loan to Afford This Hat DLC for The Last of Us

Hats off

Some days video game news runs so thick and fast that the highly trained team of journalistic monkeys here at Push Square Towers can barely keep up with it all. Other days – like when a huge European industry event is in just under a week's time, for instance – there's so little happening that we're forced to cover stories that some...

Snow Joke! Sony Seemingly Teases Until Dawn PS4 Re-Reveal for GamesCom

Arms get cold in February air

Until Dawn became the poster child for Sony’s ill-fated PlayStation Move motion controller when it was first announced, which just goes to show how long the teen horror title has spent in hiding since being unveiled. As suspected, a leaked GamesCom 2014 lineup last week confirmed the release for the PlayStation 4 –...

Why You Should Try The Last of Us Remastered's Multiplayer Mode on PS4

Endure and survive

Naughty Dog’s not half bad at multiplayer modes. When it was announced that Uncharted 2: Among Thieves would be entering the competitive arena, there was outrage among fans of the original outing – after all, this was a series that prided itself on its plot rather than its gunplay. However, the title’s acrobatic action...
