News: When the Heck Is PS4 Firmware Update 2.00 Deploying?

When the Heck Is PS4 Firmware Update 2.00 Deploying?

Soon, it seems

In reality, it hasn’t been that long since the PlayStation 4’s hotly anticipated 2.00 firmware update was announced – but that hasn’t stopped us from yearning at the prospect of the functionality enhancing digital download. Fortunately, platform holder Sony stresses that it’s not far away now, so you won’t have too much...

Yes! PSone Title Vib Ribbon Is Rockin' and Rollin' onto the PS Store

Fashionably late

Remember when, for a few fleeting seconds, it seemed like new SCEA president Shawn Layden was going to say something interesting during Sony’s big E3 press conference this year? The animated executive seemed to segue into a segment about legendary PSone release Vib Ribbon – only to drop the title as quickly as he touched upon...

Listen to Us Discuss the PS4's Biggest Upcoming Games

Pod thing

One of the biggest requests for Push Square both internally and externally is some kind of podcast, but it’s been on the backburner for some time now. However, at EGX London last week, we decided to give the idea a go, in order to catalogue both our experiences on the show floor – and also see if the concept would actually, y'know,...

Don't Crash Your Car in DriveClub on PlayStation 4

Over and out of the race

We wished that we could pad out slow news days with pictures of kittens chasing their tails, but unfortunately the company directors may have something to say about that. Fortunately, we can fill out the evening with DriveClub clips, like the one embedded below. Thank you Evolution Studios for giving us something to write...

PS4 Takes the Gadget of the Year Gong at the T3 Awards

Brushes aside iPhone 5S and Xbox One

There’s a good chance that you’re reading this website because you love PlayStation, but let’s not pretend that there aren’t dozens of other snazzy gizmos out there. The market is practically flooded with nifty appliances these days, which perhaps makes the PlayStation 4’s success at the T3 Awards all...

Our Three Favourite PS4 Games from EGX London 2014

The final word

The ballot papers have been collected, counted, rigged, re-counted, and revealed – and Alien: Isolation has won this year’s official EGX London 2014 game of the show. We’re contrary kittens here at Push Square, though, and we reckon that the British gaming public’s got its favourite PlayStation 4 titles in the wrong order...

First Impressions: Squeezing the Cheeks of LittleBigPlanet 3 on PS4

Squeezing the Cheeks of LittleBigPlanet 3 on PS4

Sack joy

Like a cuddly toy that’s slipped down the side of a forgetful infant’s bed, there’s a sense that LittleBigPlanet 3 is getting overlooked. Caught among the onslaught of holiday releases, Sackboy and his band of burlap buddies have failed to catch the interest of the robotic hordes fawning over annualised outings such as Call of Duty:...

Forget That Awesome UK PS4 Package, This One Is Better

Impulse purchase

There has never been a better time to buy a PlayStation 4 in the UK. Retailers are competing for your custom ahead of the busy Christmas shopping season, and prices are getting slashed like there’s no tomorrow. There are also some great unofficial bundles doing the rounds, like the one that we spotted at GAME earlier in the week...

Rumour: 14GB Will Be Enough to Contain the Cuteness of PS4 Exclusive LittleBigPlanet 3

14GB Will Be Enough to Contain the Cuteness of PS4 Exclusive LittleBigPlanet 3

PS Move compatibility also on the cards

A little like DriveClub, the upcoming LittleBigPlanet 3 is one of those titles that we want nestling on our PlayStation 4’s hard drive. Sony’s exclusive lineup this year seems built around pickup and play experiences that will have long legs, and Sackboy’s latest errand looks particularly likely to...

Reaction: EGX London Hammers Another Nail in PS Vita's Coffin

EGX London Hammers Another Nail in PS Vita's Coffin

Dead too soon

Sony managed to squeeze a double-decker bus onto its booth at EGX London last week, but we didn’t spot a single PlayStation Vita. The flailing format has been largely ignored at the platform holder’s various press conferences this year, but has always enjoyed a strong showfloor presence, with titles such as Freedom Wars and

This Enormous PS4 Bundle Is Bordering on Parody

Chuck everything in

In addition to wiping the floor with Microsoft's abhorrent used games policies, Sony’s strategy for the latest generation seems to have centred on one very simple tactic: bundle everything. The platform holder has announced a dizzying number of hardware packages over the past 12 months, and this set available in Germany is the...

News: What Do the PlayStation Vita's First Themes Look Like?

What Do the PlayStation Vita's First Themes Look Like?

Suits you, sir

Unlike the PlayStation 4, the PlayStation Vita has always been relatively customisable. Straight out of the box, Sony allowed you to personalise the platform’s bubbly user interface with different colours and pictures – but that functionality’s evolved today. As part of the portable’s v3.30 firmware update, the company has...

Sony: The Last Guardian Development Couldn't Be Better

"That might be a bit of an exaggeration"

At this point, we’re convinced that the inevitable documentary detailing the production of The Last Guardian will be better than any game that Team ICO actually manage to ship. As part of an interview with Japanese publication Famitsu, Sony Worldwide Studios gaffer Shuhei Yoshida reiterated that the long...

Firmware Update 3.30 Brightens Up PS Vita with Themes

Dream theme

Want to know what’s better than first-party games? Themes, of course! Sony may have more or less pulled the plug on internal PlayStation Vita development, but at least it’s released a new firmware update that promises to bring a slew of pretty patterns to your favourite portable. Beginning today, you’ll be able to

What Do You Get in DriveClub: PS Plus Edition on PS4?

Fast and furious

DriveClub: PS Plus Edition is undoubtedly the highlight of October’s massive PlayStation Plus update, but you may be pondering what the free PlayStation 4 download actually includes. As the name indicates, this isn’t the full version of Evolution Studios’ next-gen racer, but a cut down copy designed to give you a taste of...

Sigh! Even Sony Can't Resist Ruffling Fanboy Feathers

Not this again

Virtually all video game trailers include carefully selected press quotes, but this DriveClub clip just couldn’t resist fuelling the fanboy flames. At one point in the 90-second promo embedded below, the platform holder points out that Evolution Studios’ next-gen racer is the PlayStation 4’s purported 'Forza killer'. Granted,...
