What PS4 Firmware Update 4.0 Features Do You Want?

Folders? PSone Classics? External HDD support?

Sony sprung the smallest slither of PlayStation 4 firmware update v4.00 news this week, confirming that a beta for the big update will commence next month – but stopping short of announcing any features. It's been quite a while since we last got a major system software refresh for the Japanese...

Feelin' hot, hot, hot

As scorching temperatures here in the UK continue to melt away our productivity, we're not sure that we can even be arsed playing games this weekend. That said, those of you from more tropical climes may be better equipped to cope with the apocalyptic temperatures, so do let us know what you're playing in the comments section...

Time out

With the Great Weekend of Sport over, it's time for the Great Weekend of Gaming – at least that's what we're dubbing it here at Push Square Towers. There may not be many major titles deploying at the moment, but there are some decent offers on the PlayStation Store – and we've all got backlogs to bust. Here's what we're playing. Kell...

Is Sony Scared of Xbox's Scorpio?

Neo way

Microsoft jumped feet first into the iterative hardware space at E3 2016, announcing Project Scorpio for… Well, the end of 2017! Sony, on the other hand, opted to keep the PlayStation 4K closer to its chest, confirming that it is working on an upgraded console, but refusing to share specifics until the platform is officially announced...

Is It Time for PSone Classics on PS4?

Old-school

This week saw the release of two PlayStation 2 titles on the PlayStation 4: The Warriors and Metal Slug Anthology. The two articles that we wrote confirming these releases went on to become among the most viewed on the website over the past seven days, proving that there's pent-up demand for these retro re-releases.

Backlog busters

You can always tell it's summer, not because the sun is shining outside, but because WAYP is filled with people playing old games. That's certainly the case this time, as the people of Push Square Towers casually go about busting their backlogs. Alex Stinton, Reviewer: There's something to be said for returning to a game well after...

Celebrate good times

E3 2016 is over, which means that it's time to stop thinking about games on the horizon, and start playing the ones in your backlog. With the summer drought slowly starting to take hold, there's plenty of variety among our team's responses this week – and we expect a similar story in the comments section below. Ben Tarrant,...

Did Sony PlayStation's E3 2016 Press Conference Deliver?

Livin' on hype

And with Days Gone, the E3 2016 press conferences have concluded. For many of you reading this website, Sony's show will have been your most anticipated – but did it deliver? Last year, the platform holder served up arguably the greatest showcase of all time, and it attempted to match that with God of War, Horizon: Zero Dawn,...

Did Ubisoft's E3 2016 Press Conference Impress You?

Ubiquitous software

Ubisoft's unquestionably one of gaming's juggernauts, but did its press conference at E3 2016 impress? The publisher led with some of its biggest upcoming titles – Watch Dogs 2, Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Wildlands, and For Honor – but it also showcased South Park The Fractured but Whole and a new extreme sports title called...

Did Bethesda Bring the Big Guns to E3 2016?

All of the Fallout

This year marked only the second ever Bethesda press conference, but already the organisation feels like part of the E3 furniture. Its media briefing earlier today centred on the likes of Dishonored 2 and Fallout 4 DLC, but it also included announcements of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition and Prey, too. But what did...

Did EA's E3 2016 Press Conference Entertain You?

Electronic arts or wet farts?

And with that, the first E3 2016 press conference is under our belts. Never one to follow trends, EA did things a little differently this year, opting to hold its own event aligned with E3 – but technically not part of the convention. Its briefing was a bit predictable, though, focusing on the likes of Mass Effect...

The calm before the E3 2016 storm

Everything that possibly could have gone wrong went wrong this week, but it's going to take the onset of another Ice Age to prevent us from covering E3 2016 to the extent that you expect. Before the big show gets underway, though, there's just enough time for our weekly edition of WAYP. Let's get this over with...
