PSN Down for Some Another Day as High Volume Prompts Connection Problems

Offline again

While there have been definite improvements to the PlayStation Network over the past 24 hours or so, it's clear from social media that Sony is still having serious issues getting gamers back online. We can use our PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and Vita without any problems here in the UK, but it would appear that we're among the lucky...

Meet the Man Who Stole Christmas for PS4 Fans

The Grinch would be proud

While the PlayStation Network slowly rolls back out around the globe, the after effects of a recent gaming cyber attack are still looming large. Indeed, some people are still unable to connect on the PlayStation 4, rendering Christmas gifts untouched. Meanwhile, the damage to Sony's reputation has been catastrophic –...

Joy to the World, PSN's No Longer Offline

Most people can now connect

Let's hope that this is the last article that we have to write on this matter: PlayStation Network is finally coming back online across the globe. While not everyone has access yet, we're now able to use our consoles fully – we even tried our luck by purchasing a couple of games from the PlayStation Store, and had zero...

Poor Communication Continues to Be PSN's Biggest Problem

Sammy Barker is sick of Sony's silence

The PlayStation Network has been on and off for three days now, and it's not good enough. I'm confident that Sony is working around the clock to restore the service, and I'm not one of those people that lacks patience, but I am disappointed at the Japanese giant's communication on the matter. At this point,...

Sony Engineers Investigating as PS4 Goes Offline Again

PSN problems proceed

Alright, this is getting boring now. Sony declared earlier today that the PlayStation Network was rolling back out on the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and Vita, and we were able to log in without a hitch for a few hours. However, any hopes of the service returning fully have taken yet another tumble, as the platform holder now...

Log in to your PS4 at last

We're not network engineers. While we have a basic understanding of the Internet and how it works, we're not blessed with the knowledge required to fast-track your connection to the PlayStation Network. Fortunately, some people are, and there's a nifty trick doing the rounds that will apparently help you to log in – even...

This Christmas Gift Is the PS4 Equivalent of Coal

Stone the crows

If you reckon that you had a rough Christmas trying to connect to the PlayStation Network, then spare a thought for Igor Baksht's poor 13-year-old niece, who almost received a box of rocks for the big day. According to the Daily Mail, the aforementioned unfortunate shopper picked up a PlayStation 4 from Wal-Mart, but was sold a box...

Which PS4 Games Are You Most Looking Forward to in 2015?

Thinking ahead

We love navel gazing as much as the next person here at Push Square Towers, which is why we've compiled seven features on our favourite 2014 PlayStation forays. However, in an industry that's constantly moving forwards, it's hard not to look ahead as well. That's why we've pulled our team together one last time to discuss our most...

Season's Greetings from PlayStation's Premium Developers

They wish you a Merry Christmas

Christmas wouldn't be the same without more greetings cards than you know what to do with. Waltzing wintery streets with a square of cardboard that won't fit in your pocket is what the holidays are all about, so it kind of makes sense for game developers to acknowledge their fans with bits and pieces of custom art...

"OMG! It's a PlayStation 4"

Christmas is a time of sharing, seasonal goodwill, and – let's be honest – plenty of presents. As you read this, we're guessing that there's a carpet of discarded wrapping paper beneath your feet, and an infectious grin plastered upon your face.

PS4 Exclusive The Order: 1886 Wishes You a Silent Night

Panic on the streets of London

Sony's done a pretty terrible job of promoting The Order: 1886 so far, but this brand new Christmas trailer has really got us in the mood. Set to a haunting rendition of Silent Night, the seasonal clip shows off several unseen sequences from the game – and the imagery in the video really suits the harrowing audio...

Cheap and cheerful

You sleep when you die is the mantra that Sony appears to be living by.

Sony's Cancelled Movie The Interview Is Out Now, But Not on PSN Yet

Called back

We know that companies change their minds all of the time, but this is insane. Sony previously said that it had no intention of ever releasing The Interview, but it's swiftly reversed that decision, and deployed the controversial flick – a day before its originally intended launch date. Clearly sensing dollar signs from all of the free...
