What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 18

Snow isn't falling, all around us

The holidays are coming, and that can only mean one thing – it's time to grab your favourite Christmas sweater (you know, the one that your Nan knitted for you), hold a yummy mince pie in one hand, and pick up your DualShock with the other. This weekend, here at Push Square towers, we'll be busy Trophy hunting and...

Is PlayStation Plus Helping or Hindering the PS Vita?

Playing the waiting game

Speculation seeping out of this week’s NPD sales report suggests that Media Molecule’s universally acclaimed PlayStation Vita exclusive Tearaway sold around 14,000 copies in North America during its release window. That number is heartbreaking for a title that not only came close to a 10/10 on this site, but also...

PS4 Proves That Consoles Are Alive and Kicking

On the pulse

We relish bad news like a kitten does catnip. As a species, it’s deep coded into our genetic makeup to pay utmost attention to the darkest parts of life and brush the positives under the carpet. Newspapers lead with murders rather than acts of bravery, television bulletins push cheerful clips to the tail-end of their schedules, and...

Greatness comes to those that wait

The wait for the PlayStation 4 has been especially difficult for Europe. Those of you living in North America were able to snatch the next generation system two weeks ago, meaning that folks in the UK, France, and Germany have been left twiddling their thumbs for almost 14 days. No more, though, as the console...

Greatness arrives

There’s not a whole lot of girth to this week’s edition of ‘What Are You Playing This Weekend’, we’re afraid. We wanted to put together a big PlayStation 4 launch special for you, but didn’t consider that most of our North American team would be too busy actually experiencing greatness to take part. As for our European...

Greatness beckons

The wait has almost come to an end. At the time of writing, we are mere hours away from the PlayStation 4’s launch in North America.

If the impending next generation felt like a far away dream when you lurched out of bed this morning, then today’s initial roster of hardware and software reviews should have shaken you out of your slumber.

Is a Big Reveal Likely During Sony's PS4 Launch Livestream?

Dropping bombs

We’ve lost count of PlayStation press conferences this year. Ordinarily the platform holder commits three big events to the gaming calendar – E3, GamesCom, and TGS, of course – but this year it’s eschewed that trend in favour of quite literally a half-dozen media briefings or more. The latest in its long line of livestreams...

That means that this is your final opportunity to clear out your backlog before the next generation officially begins. In order to celebrate the occasion, we’ve compiled a...
