Import-ant news

Bandai Namco has recently released a new gameplay trailer for an upcoming PlayStation Vita exclusive based on the anime series Sword Art Online.

Going global

Indie games have become an enormous part of the PlayStation brand.

January 2014 - Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition

One more treasure for Lara

For once, January was a relatively quiet month here at Push Square in terms of reviews. With no real blockbusters bursting onto the PlayStation scene, last month's vote was always going to be a tricky one, as we had to round up titles that some of our staff had never even heard of.
