Something's Coming in Sony's Second Gamescom 2014 Teaser of the Day

An axe to grind

Sony’s in full on hype mode ahead of its Gamescom 2014 press conference next week – it’s just a shame that it’s releasing some pretty poor promotional trailers to lead into the event. Alright, this one isn’t anywhere near as bad as this afternoon’s hypnotherapy session, but two teasers in one day is probably a little bit...

Sony's Gamescom 2014 Teaser Trailers Are Getting Worse

Is this some kind of hypnotherapy?

With the games industry getting ready to descend upon Germany ahead of next week’s Gamescom 2014 convention, Sony is starting to hype up its annual media briefing. A few days ago it deployed a teaser trailer for what appeared to be Until Dawn, but now it’s gone with something a little more vanilla to count down...

Sony: We Want to Make PS4 Players Feel Special

All part of being the best place to play

Sony wants you to feel special for selecting the PlayStation 4 over the handful of other systems on the market. Cheery third-party chief Adam Boyes revealed the tidbit in an interview with Game Informer magazine, pointing to the platform holder’s co-marketing partnership with Bungie’s first-person shooter...

Feature: What Went Wrong with PlayStation Mobile?

What Went Wrong with PlayStation Mobile?

Totally immobile

Sony’s smartphone strategy seemed so, well, smart a few years ago. While the PlayStation Vita was flagging, the format holder appeared to have a long-term plan in PlayStation Mobile – a compartmentalised plaza offering semi-curated content on PlayStation-certified platforms. The idea was to step away from the poor quality...

You'll Need to Take Out a Loan to Afford This Hat DLC for The Last of Us

Hats off

Some days video game news runs so thick and fast that the highly trained team of journalistic monkeys here at Push Square Towers can barely keep up with it all. Other days – like when a huge European industry event is in just under a week's time, for instance – there's so little happening that we're forced to cover stories that some...

Snow Joke! Sony Seemingly Teases Until Dawn PS4 Re-Reveal for GamesCom

Arms get cold in February air

Until Dawn became the poster child for Sony’s ill-fated PlayStation Move motion controller when it was first announced, which just goes to show how long the teen horror title has spent in hiding since being unveiled. As suspected, a leaked GamesCom 2014 lineup last week confirmed the release for the PlayStation 4 –...

Why You Should Try The Last of Us Remastered's Multiplayer Mode on PS4

Endure and survive

Naughty Dog’s not half bad at multiplayer modes. When it was announced that Uncharted 2: Among Thieves would be entering the competitive arena, there was outrage among fans of the original outing – after all, this was a series that prided itself on its plot rather than its gunplay. However, the title’s acrobatic action...

That Rainbow PS4 Raised a Truckload of Money for Charity

Heartwarming hardware

You may remember a story that we ran a few days ago about a decidedly colourful PlayStation 4 with an important message. Dubbed the 'GayStation 4', this colourful custom SKU was constructed to coincide with the Stockholm Pride festival, and was planned to be auctioned off in order to raise money for Swedish charity RFSL. Well,...

UK Sales Charts: The Last of Us Remastered Stumbles Upon Fifth Biggest Launch of the Year

All of that foraging paid off

Naughty Dog’s hard work porting re-release The Last of Us Remastered to the PlayStation 4 wasn’t for nothing, as the next-gen escapade has attained the fifth biggest launch of the year in the UK – an impressive feat considering that 90 per cent of the nation’s living it up in Alicante right now. It also secured...

Review: The Last of Us Remastered (PlayStation 4)

The Last of Us Remastered (PlayStation 4)

About a girl

Success comes with scepticism. From the second that first-party outfit Naughty Dog’s survival horror experiment The Last of Us was compared favourably to cinematic masterpiece Citizen Kane, the release was always going to have to convince a jaded jury of cynics that it was worthy of such watershed acclaim. Its legacy will probably...

Call of Duty company adopts veterans

The over publicised exodus at Naughty Dog is showing no signs of slowing, as two studio strays have found a new home at Call of Duty: Ghosts developer Infinity Ward. Jacob Minkoff and Taylor Kurosaki, both notable names at the Californian company, will assume the design director and narrative director positions...
