With hopes of starting over

I understand where Polygon scribe Colin Campbell is coming from when he says that he won’t be playing the recently announced PlayStation 4 conversion of thatgamecompany’s seminal spiritual adventure, Journey. Like the author in question, I too haven’t booted the game since a gloomy morning in

How Many PlayStation Predictions Did We Get Correct at Gamescom 2014?

Keeping score

One thing that we’ve always been keen to maintain here at Push Square Towers is that our predictions always remain realistic. Every site under the sun likes to make a press conference prophecy prior to a big gaming convention – after all, the build up is a large part of the fun – but we’ve never been a fan of those misleading...

Gamescom 2014: The Last Guardian Still Exists, But You Won't Be Seeing It Anytime Soon

The Last Guardian Still Exists, But You Won't Be Seeing It Anytime Soon

The saga continues

It wouldn't be a major videogame industry event without a Sony executive making an offhand remark about The Last Guardian. This time, vice president of Sony Worldwide Studios Europe Michael Denny was on hand to make sure that we know the title is still very much a part of the Japanese giant's long term strategy. "There are no new...

Gamescom 2014: How Does PS4 Firmware Update 2.00's Share Play Feature Work?

How Does PS4 Firmware Update 2.00's Share Play Feature Work?

Honestly, like magic

To date, the social aspects of the PlayStation 4 have all been based upon existing concepts. Placing the share button on the DualShock 4 was undoubtedly a stroke of genius, but there’s nothing especially original about uploading gameplay clips to Facebook or broadcasting live on Twitch. However, with firmware update v2.00,...

Gamescom 2014: Rockstar Wants Grand Theft Auto V PS4 to Blow You Away

Rockstar Wants Grand Theft Auto V PS4 to Blow You Away

"Nothing but the very best will satisfy Rockstar"

Grand Theft Auto V was no slouch on the PlayStation 3. The title had its visual flaws for sure, but it still largely pushed the boundaries of what’s possible on Sony’s previous generation machine. However, the PlayStation 4 port will take things to the next level – and Take-Two boss Strauss...

Gamescom 2014: PS4 Titles to Take Centre Stage at the Tokyo Game Show

PS4 Titles to Take Centre Stage at the Tokyo Game Show

Japanese centric software a very important point

Sony’s shifting PlayStation 4 consoles at a record breaking rate, but in Japan, the format is a bit of a flop right now. That’s because, unlike in Europe and North America, the market doesn’t feel that there’s enough content to justify its existence, which means that it’s getting heavily...

Gamescom 2014: PS4 Exclusive The Tomorrow Children Doesn't Look Like PixelJunk

PS4 Exclusive The Tomorrow Children Doesn't Look Like PixelJunk

It's really complicated, though

Sony’s press conference at Gamescom 2014 centred very much on the weird and wonderful, and the platform holder picked a doozy to kick things off. The Tomorrow Children is the latest title from Kyoto-based PixelJunk creator Q-Games, and marks the developer’s return to 3D games – a point which industry veteran...

PlayStation TV Changes the Channel from 14th October

Europe forced to wait until 14th November

PlayStation TV, the teensy PlayStation Vita-based microconsole that launched in Japan last year, will tune in to North American flat screens from 14th October, manufacturer Sony has announced. Those of you in Europe will need to wait a little longer to pick up a signal, as broadcasting won’t begin in the...

We recap all of the big PS4 announcements

It’s not always easy to watch video game press conferences in their entirety.

Gamescom 2014: PlayStation Vita Largely Ignored During Sony's Show

PlayStation Vita Largely Ignored During Sony's Show

Missing in action

It’s rare for us to write a story about what wasn’t announced during a PlayStation press conference – after all, we typically have our work cut out just trying to cover what was announced. However, the PlayStation Vita’s complete lack of presence during the Japanese giant’s Gamescom 2014 media briefing today definitely...

Gamescom 2014: The PS4 Has Sold a Staggering 10 Million Units Since Launch

The PS4 Has Sold a Staggering 10 Million Units Since Launch

Greatness sells

During its Gamescom conference today, Sony revealed that the PlayStation 4 has sold a flabbergasting ten million units worldwide since its launch last year. The Japanese giant also noted that 30 million pieces of software have been purchased by consumers in that time. To be honest, we've run out of ways to express how impressive...

Reaction: PS4's Variety Shines at Gamescom 2014, but Sony's Presser Lacked a Show Stopper

PS4's Variety Shines at Gamescom 2014, but Sony's Presser Lacked a Show Stopper

On closer reflection

Sony usually marches into Gamescom unobstructed. The platform holder has been holding press conferences in Cologne for as long as we’ve been running this website, even revealing the PlayStation 3 Slim – the redesign which would eventually reverse its flagging format’s fortunes – at the event some five years ago. In...

Gamescom 2014: In PS4 Exclusive DriveClub, It Pays to Drive Together

In PS4 Exclusive DriveClub, It Pays to Drive Together

Vroom vroom

DriveClub has seen its fair share of delays over the past year, but it's very likely been worth the wait, as Evolution Studios seems more confident about its drop-dead gorgeous game than ever before. With vehicles that we swear look real and slick-looking racing mechanics, we're pretty revved up to play the game for ourselves, and Sony's...

Gamescom 2014: PS4's inFAMOUS: First Light Recharges with Battle Arenas

PS4's inFAMOUS: First Light Recharges with Battle Arenas

Curdun Cay is kinda cra'y

inFAMOUS: First Light may not be attaining quite the same publicity as Sony’s other first-party titles right now, but it sounds like a seriously meaty slice of side content. In addition to a four hour single player campaign that plots the return of street savvy conduit Fetch, it will also boast Battle Arenas with a...

Gamescom 2014: RIME Still Looks Utterly Resplendent on PS4

RIME Still Looks Utterly Resplendent on PS4

New trailer is tasty

RIME raised the roof during Sony’s Gamescom press conference last year, and while it didn’t have quite the same impact on this occasion – it’s a known quantity, after all – it’s still looking ridiculously pretty on the PlayStation 4. Developed by Spanish studio Tequila Works, the release evokes memories of ICO, with...

Gamescom 2014: Nikola Tesla Supercharges PS4 Exclusive The Order: 1886

Nikola Tesla Supercharges PS4 Exclusive The Order: 1886

Playing with power

When it was first announced, Ready at Dawn promised that it would fuse real-world history with fiction in PlayStation 4 exclusive The Order: 1886, and it revealed part of how it intends to do that prior to Sony’s big Gamescom 2014 press conference earlier today – by implementing Nikola Tesla into the fiction.
