Watch the Sony PlayStation Pre-TGS 2014 Press Conference Right Here

It's PS4 and Vita's time to shine in Japan

There ain’t no party like a PlayStation party – and the best thing about Sony is that there’s very little delay between shows. Hot on the heels of its Gamescom presentation less than a month ago, the platform holder’s set to invade Tokyo for an event dedicated to its Japanese fans. Join us from...

News: A Brand New Entry in the Beloved Ys Series is Coming to PS4 and Vita in 2015

A Brand New Entry in the Beloved Ys Series is Coming to PS4 and Vita in 2015

Oh Ysssssss!

Ys is a funny old series. The most recent one to come out in the west was Memories of Celceta on Vita, to which we gave a very positive review, but there have been plenty of entries which missed Europe entirely. And while it remains a hopelessly niche property over here in the west, in Japan it's a major franchise. Running since 1987,...

Review: Disgaea 4: A Promise Revisited (PlayStation Vita)

Disgaea 4: A Promise Revisited (PlayStation Vita)

On the move, dood!

When someone mentions “hardcore gaming,” your mind probably either springs towards the image of an overweight shut-in with poor hygiene and an obsession with the evils of Call of Duty or, failing that, one of those Korean chaps who inexplicably play Starcraft for six weeks straight. You probably don’t think about a cutesy...

Themes Aren't Just Coming to PS4, They're Coming to Vita, Too

Not bad

There's no doubt that the PlayStation 4 is in desperate need of some customisation options, but the PS Vita, meanwhile, is actually doing okay in that regard. The system allows you to group and move content around via its touchscreen, and you're able to set any photo that you have saved on the console as a background. Nevertheless, Sony's...

God Eater 2: Rage Burst Will, Er, Burst onto The PS4 and Vita in Japan

Everybody calm down

In the middle of a rather packed Tokyo Game Show pre-conference this morning, Sony announced that upgraded port God Eater 2: Rage Burst will be coming to the PlayStation 4 and Vita in Japan. While it's still a little unclear how much of the game will be new, we think it's safe to assume that it will be similar to God Eater Burst,...

Push Rewind: September's PlayStation Plus Offering, More PSN Downtime, and Saints Row on PS4

September's PlayStation Plus Offering, More PSN Downtime, and Saints Row on PS4

A mixed bag

It's been a rather straightforward week here at Push Square. We've had a fair few reviews, a little bit of bad news, and a look at September's all important PlayStation Plus update. The week ahead is perhaps more important, as we gaze forward to Sony's pre-Tokyo Game Show conference and next month's big releases, but it's always nice...

Bizarre Vita Exclusive Murasaki Baby Will Give You Adorable Nightmares

Terrifying toddler

If that disturbing baby-thing lurking in P.T.'s bathroom wasn't enough to scare you, perhaps the titular character from Murasaki Baby will. The baffling PlayStation Vita exclusive's nefarious newborn seems to be the bizarre lovechild of David Lynch and Tim Burton, and also happens to be a perfect example of the title's incredibly...

Watch as We Take a Trip Back in Time to Round-Up Gamescom 2014 and Its Game of the Show

Oh the memories

Ah, good old Gamescom 2014. Remember when it divided the gaming community because of its supposed focus on smaller games? We thought that you would. Anyway, we know that it's a bit late, but madcap Video Editor Ben Potter would still love for you to watch his typically mental round-up video. As you may remember, the newly announced...

What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 36

All night long

Ah, the weekend – that quiet period where real work is cancelled in favour of household chores. Assuming that you get a break from doing the cooking, cleaning, and fixing that wonky shelf in your bathroom, then you’ll probably be investing it in front of your favourite PlayStation format. Here’s what we’re going to be up to...

Talking Point: Is Indie Becoming a Defunct, Dirty Word?

Is Indie Becoming a Defunct, Dirty Word?

Term worm

Indie is the video game equivalent of Marmite: a sector of the medium so divisive that it’s simultaneously culpable of both dismay and delight. The very website that you’re reading is evidence of that, but we’re not alone: scuffles and skirmishes more heated than the format wars themselves can be attributed to the increasingly...

Salt and Sanctuary Shakes Some Gorgeous Action onto PS4 and Vita

Taking Sanctuary on PlayStation

Having only just covered Dust: An Elysian Tail, here we have a game from another prominent Xbox 360 developer coming to the PlayStation 4 – and the PlayStation Vita, too. Even more excitingly, this is a completely new and original game, rather than a port. Salt and Sanctuary comes from Ska Studios – a team best...

Metal Slug 3 Runs and Guns Its Way onto the PS4, PS3, and Vita

Pixel perfect port

No self-respecting videogame console would be complete without at least a handful of Metal Slug ports to its name, so we're happy to report that Metal Slug 3 will be arriving on all three of Sony's super systems later this year. Recently announced on the PlayStation Blog, the bombastic port will apparently come packed with some...

Ascension: Chronicle of the Godslayer Bringing Deck Building to PS Vita

Play your cards right

Playdek is pretty prolific when it comes to tabletop game conversions on iOS. The San Diego studio has released plenty of titles across Apple's range of iPhones and iPads, and now it's branching out onto the PlayStation Vita. Ascension: Chronicle of the Godslayer is a popular deck building game, which the firm has already...

Mega Man X4 and X5 Coming to PS3 and PS Vita Next Month

That's mega, man

Sound the good news klaxon: Mega Man X4 and Mega Man X5, both of which originally released on the PSone, are coming to modern consoles this September. The PlayStation 3 and PS Vita will both be getting the much-loved pair in a move that's sure to delight Capcom fans and masochists the world over. Surprisingly, the release dates,...

News: Yay, PSN's Delayed Scheduled Maintenance Returns Today

Yay, PSN's Delayed Scheduled Maintenance Returns Today

Don't worry, you'll be able to play online

We suppose that we should give Sony credit for delaying the PlayStation Network’s previously planned maintenance after Sunday’s outage – even if it was only for a few days. The platform holder has announced that Monday’s postponed preservation period will now take place later today in both
