Finally, We Can Compare PS4 and Xbox One Sales

Sony's way out in the lead

Microsoft stopped reporting Xbox One hardware sales recently, suggesting that its Monthly Active Users metric is more important than its flagship format's install base. Fortunately, an EA investor report and a bit of math has enabled us to, for the first time in a long while, see how the Redmond firm's box is performing in...

Sony's Dropped a Clanger with This Let's Play Lark

Company tries to trademark YouTube term

Sony, why?! The early success of the PlayStation 4 can be assigned to the feel-good factor that the Japanese giant built around the format: the gamer-centric marketing, the agreeable policies, the Jack Tretton smackdown – so why the heck is the company jeapordising that by trying to trademark the popular...

Gravity Rush Remastered (PS4)

Katnip

It's a good thing that ex-PlayStation Vita exclusive Gravity Rush is getting a sequel, because playing PlayStation 4 port Gravity Rush Remastered highlights the untapped potential that this fledgling franchise harbours. Four years removed from its Japanese debut, the upside-down action platformer feels a little lacking in the mission variety...

Sony and Square Enix Are at It Again with Dragon Quest Builders' Marketing

Another brick in the wall

Remember when Sony partnered with Square Enix to cover Shinjuku train station in Dragon Quest Heroes bubble wrap? Japanese commuters were free to pop slimes until their fingers ached, and the result was an advertising campaign worth writing about. And now, with Dragon Quest Builders launching this week in the Land of the...

Evolution, indeed

"What the Dickens!" Push Square boss man Anthony Dickens is sure to exclaim when he reads this article.

The Best Games on PS4 - Winter 2016 Edition

Back for more

It's been six months since we controversially categorised the best games on the PlayStation 4, and a lot has happened since then. Not only have a handful of absentees from last year's 20 strong shortlist won a place in our most active organs, but new releases have also caused us to reconsider the cream of the crop. So, in what we...

PS4 Games Named Most Accessible for People with Disabilities

Good stuff

Gaming is a pastime that anyone can enjoy, but not every release takes into account players with disabilities. While the PlayStation 4 does now allow users to reassign buttons at an operating system level – thus making titles more accessible to everyone – the Able Gamers charity is still eager to recognise those releases that are...
