You'll Be Seeing More of The Order: 1886 and Bloodborne at The Game Awards

The Keigh to success

It's going to be a big week for news here at Push Square, with two major events looming large enough on the horizon to make our news team collectively shake in its boots. The first of these – the Geoff Keighley-funded The Game Awards – promises to be nothing if not an interesting affair. The usually boisterous spruiker has...

Rumour: Sony's About to Get Really Aggressive in China

Sony's About to Get Really Aggressive in China

Business development

Considering that PlayStation is already enormous in Japan and most of Asia, it was strange to see Sony allow the Xbox One to deploy in China first. Microsoft’s machine launched in the potentially lucrative region earlier in the year, and there’s been very little word from its rival when the PlayStation 4 will follow in its...

Just What the Heck Is PS4's EMAGON?

Shrugs

... And so it begins. We already expected the bulk of this week to be riddled with teaser trailers and subtle hints, but we didn’t anticipate that we’d be stumped as soon as Monday evening. Scratching our collective heads we are, though, as the Spanish PlayStation Blog has uploaded a video for “PlayStation's best hidden secret”. The...

The Weather Looks Frightful in This Uncharted 4 Concept Art

Summer holiday

Speculation suggests that we’ll be getting our second proper taste of Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End at either The Game Awards or PlayStation Experience next week – but if that still seems too far away, then Naughty Dog concept artist Eytan Zana has cooked up a treat in the form of a brand new piece of concept art for the...

See, the Console Wars Don't Have to Be Mean

Just slimy instead

War never changes – unless, of course, they’re console wars. Ever since Sony dropped its anti-DRM bomb at E3 last year, both the Japanese giant and Microsoft have learned that the best way to ingratiate themselves to potential consumers is to act like their best friend. Every press conference now concludes with a message of...

Cut price chaos

Sony hasn’t forgotten about Europe.

Even more excitingly, the manufacturer hasn’t ignored the PlayStation Vita, so there’s something for...
