  • News This Isn't Your First Look at a PlayStation All-Stars Sequel

    Rubbish

    Whether or not PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale was a good game is up for debate, but should there ever be a successor, it would be fascinating to see what direction Sony took. There's been a bizarre amount of chatter about the series online of late, with a sequel supposedly leaking on 4Chan (hint: it was fake) and now artwork arriving on...

  • News Kat Cosplays as 2B in Gravity Rush 2 Next Week

    Flying blind

    Gravity Rush 2's blonde bombshell Kat will be borrowing the threads from fellow blonde bombshell 2B next week as free DLC.

  • News PS4's Biggest Games Score Even Bigger Discounts in Europe

    60 per cent off blockbusters

    The Easter sale has now ended, which means that it's time for another PlayStation Store sale in Europe. Sony's knocking up to 60 per cent off some of the PlayStation 4's biggest games, like Destiny: The Collection, Rocket League, Titanfall 2, and Star Wars Battlefront. There are a bunch of LEGO games up for grabs at low...

  • News Sony Shares Surge Ahead of Predicted Best Profit in 20 Years

    Holding out for a Hirai

    Sony is expected to record its best profit in two decades this week, which has caused the company's shares to surge. The firm's stock closed 3.84 per cent higher in Japan amid chatter that the organisation may be on the verge of reporting its strongest profit since 1998. The organisation recently indicated that its upcoming...

    Step on the gas

    Kick, punch, it's all on your iPhone – or at least it will be if you download this official PaRappa the Rapper sticker pack. Sony's released the set of digital graphics to coincide with PlayStation's most popular pooch coming to the PlayStation 4. If you want to give someone nightmares, we recommend repeatedly sending them pictures...

  • News Days Gone Dev Sony Bend Moving to New Digs After Rapid Expansion

    Studio has more than doubled in size

    As work on Days Gone continues, Sony Bend is growing at a rapid pace. A report published by Oregon newspaper The Bulletin notes that the infamously low-profile firm is to occupy a new office this fall, as it begins to outgrow its current digs. Apparently, the studio has expanded from 45 to 103 employees recently,...

  • Talking Point What Free May 2017 PlayStation Plus Games Are You After?

    Gimme the goods

    T'is that time of the month yet again where we ask you to ponder which PlayStation Plus freebies you want in May 2017. We're expecting the lineup to be revealed this coming Wednesday (26th April) ahead of a 2nd May roll out. Unfortunately the release schedule's currently looking quite barren on that day, so your guess is as good as...

  • News Sony Set to Smash Forecasts as Kaz Hirai's Recovery Mission Continues

    Back on track

    Sony may not be the giant that it used to be, but former PlayStation president and current CEO Kaz Hirai's recovery mission cannot be understated. There was a time not too long ago where the company was making loss after loss after loss; now preliminary reports suggest that it's about to smash its fiscal year forecasts by a significant...

  • News Everybody's Golf Ditches Hot Shots Moniker for Western Release

    Clap your hands

    Thank heavens for that! The Hot Shots series has always been a nightmare from a database perspective because rarely do its games ever have the same name across regions. It would appear that Sony's realised that's not the best approach for search engine optimisation, though, as it's decided to name the new PlayStation 4 entry...

  • News New Hot Shots Golf Putts Out Closed Beta on 26th May

    A links in time

    New Hot Shots Golf's online game world seems like the sort of thing that could collapse on launch day, so it's a good thing that developer Clap Hanz is planning a closed beta for the arcade golfing release. Set to run between 26th May and 28th May in Japan only, you'll need to download a "ticket" from the PlayStation Store in order...

  • News Ex-Quantic Dream Employees Reference Unannounced PS4 Project

    Prior to Detroit's announcement

    Oh FFS! There's a strong rumour doing the rounds that Quantic Dream is busy beavering away on a second PlayStation 4 project in addition to Detroit: Become Human – except it's the flakiest piece of reporting we've seen in some time. While it wouldn't exactly be shocking to learn that the French outfit is prototyping...

  • News Scheduled PlayStation Network Maintenance Returns Next Week

    But it shouldn't really affect you

    People like to complain, but there's no doubt that the PlayStation Network has improved a lot these past couple of years. There hasn't been a proper outage in months, and things generally feel much more stable these days than they did at the start of the generation. Still, maintenance is required if an online...

  • News So, You Can Become a Character in Drawn to Death

    Sony launches new competition

    It seems a lot of people loathe Drawn to Death, but we really like it – or at least, this author did anyway. If you're one of those that doesn't enjoy the hand-sketched third-person shooter, then you may want to quietly toodle out of this thread before tediously reminding us how "terrible" it is in the comments...

  • News PlayStation VR Exclusive Farpoint Travels to a Mad, Mad World

    Sony's sci-fi shooter seems much deeper than expected

    We've played Farpoint a fair few times now and really enjoyed the PlayStation VR exclusive shooter, but we never really expected it to have much in the way of story. This new trailer has exceeded our expectations, then, as it sets the scene on a dangerous journey to a different planet. It's…...

    It's around this time of the year that work likely starts in earnest for the impending E3 2017, and Worldwide Studios president Shuhei Yoshida is currently in the UK visiting some of the European studios. And according to Twitter scuttlebutt, he's spent the day at Sony XDev Europe, checking out some of the conduit...

  • News Horizon: Zero Dawn Patch 1.13 Cleans Up Remaining Complaints

    Background music support incorporated

    One thing that's perhaps gone unmentioned with regards to Horizon: Zero Dawn is just how polished the experience was at launch. We reviewed the game using unpatched pre-release code – a rarity these days – and we didn't encounter any bugs, glitches, or meaningful gripes. When you consider that the open world...

  • News Sony's Bringing the 1TB PS4 Slim to the United States

    Small chassis, huge HDD

    It's been available in Europe for quite some time now, but Sony's announced that the 1TB PlayStation 4 Slim is launching in the United States this month. Obviously this is identical to the system already available in the US, it just comes with a bigger internal HDD and carries an MSRP of $299.99. There's more information on...

  • Hands On Behind the Wheel of Gran Turismo Sport

    On track?

    Are we allowed to write about this? Gran Turismo Sport's closed beta agreement terms specifically stipulate that the server stress test can't be talked about, but video platforms are filled with footage and public forums are chatting pretty openly about the racer. Hmm, for the purposes of this hands on preview, let's just pretend that...

  • News Sony to Shut Kill Strain Servers Less Than a Year After Launch

    Sports Champions, ModNation Racers, and more to also get the chop

    Call it a hunch, but we don't think Sony San Diego's asymmetric MOBA Kill Strain quite worked out as intended. You may recall the platform holder laying off the portion of the team that worked on the free-to-play foray last September, and now it's announced its intention to close the...

  • News Gravity Rush 2's Free 2B Costume Is NieRly Perfect

    YoRHa android now

    As promised, Sony has teamed up with Square Enix to add a 2B costume to Kat's wardrobe in Gravity Rush 2 – and the results are great. The mash-up with NieR Automata was announced as part of a commemoration stream in Japan overnight, and you can get a little glimpse of gameplay featuring the new threads

  • News Hour-Long Dutch Documentary Explores the Making of Horizon: Zero Dawn

    Watch it now

    Horizon: Zero Dawn has obviously been a big deal for PlayStation, but it's perhaps easy to overlook just how important the release is for Holland as well. Guerrilla Games is far and away the largest studio in the Netherlands, and not only does the PlayStation 4 exclusive's critical and commercial success reflect well on the company, but...

    Review StarBlood Arena

    Lost in space

    Overwatch in virtual reality is not a bad pitch on paper, but it's one that struggles in practice. StarBlood Arena has its heart in the right place, and developer White Moon Dreams has actually put together a moderately entertaining first-person shooter here, but with PlayStation VR being such a niche proposition, the game's never...

  • News PSN Flash Sale Brings Down Dozens of Prices on NA PlayStation Store

    Reductions remastered

    It's officially the Easter weekend which can only mean one thing: there's a Flash Sale on the North American PlayStation Store. This one's got a bit of a remaster theme, as it focuses on old classics that have been spruced up for the PlayStation 4. Some highlights include Ape Escape 2 for $3.99, The Last of Us Remastered for...

  • News PS4's Run Halted by Nintendo Switch Launch in March NPD

    But Sony's system stays strong

    As expected, the launch of the Nintendo Switch has (temporarily?) dethroned the PlayStation 4 from the top of the United States hardware charts. Sony's system had been sitting pretty for several months in a row, but it was never going to overcome the release of its rival's new handheld-cum-console, which performed...

  • News Horizon: Zero Dawn Is Free with the PS4 Pro This Easter

    In the UK at least

    Sony's looking to shift some hardware this Easter weekend, as it's announced that at select retailers in the UK you'll be able to get a free copy of Horizon: Zero Dawn with the PlayStation 4 Pro. This is a time limited deal – with the offer set to expire on 23rd April stock withstanding – so you may want to get a move on if...

  • Soapbox Sony Should Pinch the Nintendo Direct Format

    Sammy reckons there's mileage in Nintendo's marketing

    I did something I rarely do this week: I watched a Nintendo Direct. To be honest, I have a weird relationship with the Big N's pre-recorded events: I've watched the E3 ones before and I've always felt that, for everything they gain in pacing and structure, they lack the kind of energy that you...

  • News Horizon: Zero Dawn Battles to Top of PlayStation Store Charts

    But only in Europe

    You can be sure it's a slow news day when we report on the PlayStation Store charts, but maybe this is something you'd like to see us cover more regularly?

Check your emails to see if you've got in, which will take you to a webpage including a code and additional information on the server stress test itself. The client weighs in at...

  • Poll Should Sony Be Looking to Add Refunds to PSN?

    Cash back

    This is an article that we've had on the backburner for a while now, but Microsoft has somewhat forced our hand. One of the big features on Steam for quite a while has been its ability to allow you to get a refund on digital purchases. The terms of service state that, as long as you don't abuse the system, you're eligible to request a...

  • News Watch As Two of PlayStation's Most Prominent Names Chat Candidly

    Neil Druckmann and Hermen Hulst get together

    This is actually a brilliant little video: Sony put Guerrilla Games' managing director Hermen Hulst and Naughty Dog's creative director Neil Druckmann in an up-market coffee shop and filmed them chatting for 25 minutes. The conversation mostly centres around Horizon: Zero Dawn, but it does deviate to...

  • News PS4 Firmware Update 4.55 Puts in Shock Appearance

    But what does it do?

    It's a PlayStation 4 firmware update day – but not one of the good ones. Sony's sneakily launched system software v4.55 today, which improves the stability of your console. In other words, it's bringing some behind-the-scenes bug fixes and not a lot else. The patch weighs in at just 339.9MB so shouldn't take long to...

  • Deals The Best External Hard Drives for PS4

    Increase your console's capacity with a USB HDD

    Sony added external hard drive (HDD) support to the PlayStation 4 recently, meaning that you can now easily increase the capacity of your console without needing to open it and replace its internal hard drive. The system supports drives of up to 8TB, but you do need to ensure that you plump up for a...

  • Hands On StarBlood Arena Brings Loot Boxes to PlayStation VR

    Overwatch in virtual reality?

    There's nothing really wrong with StarBlood Arena, but ever since its announcement at PSX 2016, we haven't been able to resist the urge to roll our eyes. It's just one of those games that doesn't appear to have any identity of its own – and that's despite its likeable space cowboy façade. Cockpit shooters are dime a...

  • News Good God, WipEout Omega Collection Is Looking Glorious on PS4 Pro

    Gotta go fast

    German channel Inside PlayStation's got a little more pre-release footage for you to feast your eyes on, this time from WipEout Omega Collection.

  • News Horizon: Zero Dawn 2 Will Likely Have Way, Way More Machines

    And will enhance your bond with Aloy

    Guerrilla Games seems pretty open that more Horizon: Zero Dawn is on the way, and while it sounds like an expansion pack is in the works, it's also been chatting with Game Informer about a full-blown sequel. Firstly, narrative director John Gonzalez hinted that we can expect the bond between players and...

  • News Everyone's Saying Uncharted: The Lost Legacy Is 10 Hours Long

    But it's a bit misleading

    Bloody hell, the standard of games websites gets worse, doesn't it? Over the weekend, an interview with Naughty Dog's Arne Meyer got picked up by dozens of bigger sites, all because reporters without reading comprehension assumed spin-off Uncharted: The Lost Legacy will be 10 hours or longer. Ironically, the director of...

    Mid-gen battlegrounds

    Sony released the PlayStation 4 Pro last year, and it's a good iterative console.

The manufacturer's goal was never to change...

  • News There's One Xbox Scorpio Feature PS4 Pro Needs to Steal Soon

    Universal supersampling

    Sony's decision to allow developers to do whatever they want to with the PlayStation 4 Pro certainly has its benefits: it puts less pressure on already taxed teams and it gives studios more freedom to explore what they feel is best for their game. But there is a catch: with so many different approaches, a few games don't take...

    Xbox's premium console Project Scorpio has been a source of conversation ever since a 90 second trailer outed the device at E3 2016 almost 12 months ago. With manufacturer Microsoft saying very little about the system since, it's become a bit of a fan's fancy – there's been so much speculation on enthusiast forums like NeoGAF...

    How is this even possible?

    Polyphony Digital may take an age to make a game, but you know what they say: greatness awaits. If you thought that Gran Turismo Sport's recreation of Brands Hatch was spectacular, then wait until you feast your eyes on its Nurburgring. This is obviously replay footage so the visuals are turned up to eleven, but even at...

  • News Drawn to Death's Trophies Compose an Angsty Short Story

    Emo

    Drawn to Death is nothing if not bursting with personality, and its Trophies are no different. Each of its 28 trinkets forms part of a short story, which we assume has been ripped from the pages of the protagonist's sketchbook – which is, of course, where the game takes place. Here are some excerpts: "Amy keeps looking at me and smiling...

  • News FFS! Sony's E3 2017 Press Conference Schedule Hasn't Leaked

    Stop believing everything you read

    We've noticed that there's a screen-grabbed spreadsheet doing the rounds purporting to contain the secrets of Sony's rapidly approaching E3 2017 press conference. The problem is that it's merely an updated prediction by a NeoGAF user, and absolutely not a leak in any way shape or form. Why are we posting this...

  • News PlayStation Presents a Ton of Games from the China Hero Project

    Including the promising Lost Soul Aside

    As you probably already know, China is a fledgling market for console gaming, but PlayStation is trying to cultivate a market by working with local developers to create home-grown content.

  • News Horizon: Zero Dawn Still Looks Amazing in Pixel Art

    Focus on this

    Horizon: Zero Dawn is hands-down one of the best looking video games ever released, but what if it opted for an almost Game Boy Advance-esque aesthetic? That's what this mock-up by Japanese artist Toyaken21 aims to illustrate – and it's got us drooling over some kind of side-scroller starring Aloy as a result. What do you reckon?...

  • News Finally Some Direct-Feed Footage of Gran Turismo Sport's PS4 Beta

    Holy moly

    We've been posting about Gran Turismo Sport's recently released PlayStation 4 beta for a few days now, but most of the footage has come courtesy of compressed livestreams. Finally, a YouTube user has taken the time to whip out their capture card and grab a few minutes of footage running in 1080p at 60 frames-per-second, though. And the...

  • News Don't Forget About Gravity Rush 2's Free DLC

    Raven's time to shine

    Poor, poor Gravity Rush: it really is the black sheep of Sony's first-party. We'd forgotten all about Gravity Rush 2's side-story until a poster here on Push Square mentioned it, prompting us to think it may have been delayed. Not true: it's just arrived with so little fanfare that you may be forgiven for forgetting all about...

  • News Don't Expect to Bump into Drake in Uncharted: The Lost Legacy

    He's too busy playing Crash Bandicoot

    Considering his story's over, we always thought a Nathan Drake cameo would be kinda crummy should it occur in Uncharted: The Lost Legacy, and fortunately developer Naughty Dog's ruled out the possibility. Speaking with the PlayStation Blog, writer Josh Scherr had the following to say regarding the potential...

  • News Uncharted: The Lost Legacy Will Have the Largest Area in the Series

    An Indian adventure

    Uncharted's still a hyper-linear game, but there were signs in A Thief's End that Naughty Dog wanted to blow out the scale of the release. And it's going to go one bigger in spin-off The Lost Legacy, confirming in a PlayStation Blog post that it's included the largest area in the series' history in the standalone story. "The...

  • News It's Almost April and Uncharted 4 Is Still Winning Awards

    And rightly so

    We've noticed that it's become cool to hate Uncharted 4: A Thief's End in some circles, but that's not stopping it from scooping up awards like they're going out of fashion. Naughty Dog's sequel netted another gong this weekend, taking home the coveted Game of the Year accolade from the 2017 SXSW Gaming Awards. It beat out Dishonored...

  • News Gran Turismo Sport Is Sounding So Much Better Now

    Va va voom

    That delay to Gran Turismo Sport seems to have done the game the world of good. Not only does its beta look absolutely mind-blowing from a visual perspective, but those who got in have been commentating on how much better the sound is, too. Obviously long-time fans will know that the franchise has been criticised for its vacuum cleaner...

  • News This Guy Didn't Understand MLB The Show 17's Commercial

    Strike three

    If there's one popular exclusive that no one ever talks about, it's Sony San Diego's uber-popular MLB The Show 17. The series sells gangbusters year-after-year in the United States, but no one bats an eyelid – and that looks likely to reoccur with the latest instalment. Still, we can't help but feel that the platform holder could...

  • News We Can't Stop Thinking About This Fixed MLB 17 Glitch

    Strong trypophobia trigger warning

    It's a funny old world, isn't it? You've got franchises like Resident Evil, Silent Hill, and Siren all striving to create the most gruesome enemies in gaming, but Sony San Diego has stumbled upon what is surely the most harrowing character model we've ever seen by accident. Below you'll see a glitch that the team...

  • News Gran Turismo Sport's Really Looking Great in Beta

    One hour of PS4 footage

    It was supposed to release last year so it's no surprise to see Gran Turismo Sport's beta looking more polished than a showroom supercar.

  • News Ubisoft Games Join DOOM in Latest EU PlayStation Store Sale

    Not all doom and gloom

    The latest PlayStation Store sale is going in hard on Ubisoft's back catalogue, with everything from golden oldie Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag to relative newcomer For Honor selling for cheap. Well, we say cheap, but admittedly, some of these reduced prices aren't that great. Still, if you've had your eye on Watch Dogs 2 or...

  • News Sony Is Finally Killing Off the PS3 in Japan

    It's been available for over a decade

    Ah, the PlayStation 3. The last-gen machine launched over a decade ago in Japan, and even after the PlayStation 4 hit the market, it was still shifting units. Over the last couple of years, however, things have slowed dramatically; once the PS4 hit its stride in the East, PS3 sales fell off a cliff. With that in...

  • News Is Emma Stone Going to Star in Death Stranding?

    "That's a lovely rumour"

    At this point, we can probably safely say that Hideo Kojima has been given a blank cheque by Sony to make Death Stranding. The auteur not only has one of the most stylish indie game offices in the universe, but he's also busy snapping up hot Hollywood talent like Norman Reedus and Mads Mikkelsen to star in the game. And one...
