Review: Sketchcross (PlayStation Vita)

Sketchcross (PlayStation Vita)

Sketchy

Nonograms are an eclectic sort of puzzle. Mostly being a spin on sudoku with a hint of crosswords, the objective is to essentially create pixel art of animals, people, shapes, or anything that you can think of by filling in specific squares of a grid. You accomplish this by logically analysing numbers that correspond with rows and columns,...

Sony: PlayStation Vita Is a Legacy Platform

Gulp

It's perhaps an indictment of the current state of the PlayStation Vita in the Western world that we haven't really found the need to write an update on the device for some time. While there was hope of the format's fortunes turning around 18 or so months ago, the platform's fate has remained unchanged for a while now. And while it continues...

Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes PS4 Fronts Bumper June PS Plus Lineup

Skulls of the Shogun, Super Exploding Zoo, Call of Juarez

As promised, Sony has revealed June's roster of free PlayStation Plus titles – and there might not be quite as many pitchforks in the comments this time. Top of the list is Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes for the PlayStation 4, a short title oozing with blockbuster production values...

27th May 2015 (Europe)

Goods to go

How are we supposed to effectively copy and paste the European PlayStation Store update when you keep changing the layout Sony? Oh right, that's not your concern – fair enough. We'll just get down to business, then: Ultra Street Fighter IV is the biggest new arrival this time, but you may want to think twi

Japanese Sales Charts: Console Sales Remain Pretty Terrible, But Witcher 3 PS4 Takes Top Spot

Get in, Geralt

The old saying goes that things will get worse before they get better, and that's hopefully what's happening with Japan's hardware market. Once again, last week was pretty dismal for hardware sales, as not a single console made it past the 20,000 mark. The PlayStation 4 saw a slight increase, jumping from 11,489 to 12,096 units, but...

Samurai Warriors Chronicles 3 Skewers a Digital Only Western Release Date on PS Vita

Like lambs to the slaughter

Spin-off hack and slasher Samurai Warriors Chronicles 3 has nabbed a release date on Vita, and the good news is that you don't have too long to wait. The portable samurai slaughter simulator will launch on the 24th June in Europe, and we would assume that a North American date will also hover around a similar time...

Sword Art Online Fans Are Going to Be Incredibly Happy With Bandai Namco

Not one, but two titles heading West

It's always the case; you wait for one game to show up, and then two come along at once. Publisher Bandai Namco has announced that it's bringing Sword Art Online: Lost Song, and Sword Art Online Re: Hollow Fragment West this year. The latter, which is an enhanced port of the original Vita title, will launch...

26th May 2015 (North America)

Round and round and round

Hello everyone! Your ordinary host has been out for much of the day, but has returned just in time for the easiest post of the week: the North American PlayStation Store update. This one's actually moderately meaty, with the likes of Ultra Street Fighter IV and the handheld port of Octodad: Dadliest Catch up for grabs...

Sony's launching a new initiative in North America with this week's PlayStation Store update which will reward members of its premium service.

What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 69

Cry us a Rivia

It's the end of another lively week here at Push Square Towers, which means that it's time for your regular dose of WAYP. We've been beating The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt drum pretty hard here of late, but we've got a sneaking suspicion that you'll be doing something similar in the comments section. Prove us right below. Sammy Barker,...

Talking Point: What Freebies Would You Like in June's PlayStation Plus Update?

What Freebies Would You Like in June's PlayStation Plus Update?

Take your pick

If all goes to plan, June's big PlayStation Plus update should be announced at some point next week. Indeed, the content will likely roll out on 2nd June in North America and 3rd June in Europe, so we'd expect Sony to outline the offering on this coming Wednesday or Thursday – although it has left things until the last minute in...

Japanese Game Sales Hit a Whole New Low Last Week

The beginning of the end

Japan may be responsible for our love affair with video games, but the country is quickly going off the consoles that it helped to popularise. You may remember the dire Media Create figures that we posted earlier in the week – well, they are worse than you think. Much worse. According to the organisation, last week's...
