  • Store Update 1st May 2018 (Europe)

    Battlezone

    It’s surely not May already? That’s what our clock computer says. Anyway, it’s Tuesday so it’s time for another European PlayStation Store update. Highlights this time include the non-PlayStation VR arcade tank title Battlezone: Gold Edition and the long-awaited sequel Super Mega Baseball 2. PS4 Games: BUNNY MUST DIE! CHELSEA...

  • UK Sales Charts God of War Fights Off the Competition for Another Week

    No.1 once more

    God of War set a record as the fastest selling game in the series, debuting at the top of the weekly UK boxed chart. In its second week on sale, it's stayed put, fending off Far Cry 5 in second and Nintendo Labo, which debuts in third with its Variety Pack. According to GamesIndustry.biz, God of War saw a sales dip of ju

  • Talking Point What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 217

    God of more?

    Another week, another instalment of WAYP. For those of you who are new to the site, this is where the Push Square team come together to share everything they’re planning to play over the next couple of days – and we encourage you to do the same in the comments section. Let’s get into it. Glen Fox, Guides Editor: I had a...

  • News May PlayStation Plus Games Announced

    Another good month?

    Yep, it's that time of the month again. Sony has unveiled which games PlayStation Plus subscribers will be getting in May 2018, and in our opinion, it's a solid selection. On PlayStation 4, you're getting Beyond: Two Souls and Rayman Legends. Elsewhere, PlayStation 3 users can, er, look forward to Risen 3: Titan Lords and...

  • Japanese Sales Charts God of War Debuts in Second Place on PS4

    PS4 numbers still low

    God of War enjoyed a semi-decent opening in Japan, moving roughly 46,000 copies and landing in second place. We weren't expecting it to do crazy numbers, but we perhaps thought that it would get a little closer to 100,000. It was beaten out by the newly released Nintendo Labo Variety Kit, which isn't a huge surprise. Things...

  • News Big in Japan Sale Hits European PlayStation Store

    Tokyo look at these deals

    Over on the North American PS Store, the Golden Week sale has started, discounting a bunch of Japanese games by up to 60%. Now, the European Store has its own version, named Big in Japan. The titles on offer are much the same, though there are some additions; Shadow of the Colossus, Gravity Rush 2, and Tekken 7 all appear...

  • News PS4 Golden Week Sales Knock Up to 60 Per Cent Off Japanese Games

    Weeb dream

    Japan’s traditional Golden Week celebration gets underway this weekend, and Sony’s starting the celebrations early on the North American PlayStation Store with a slew of sales. As you’d expect, these mostly encompass Japanese titles, with PlayStation Plus subscribers netting up to 60 per cent off titles like Persona 5 ($26.99 with...

    When will May 2018's PlayStation Plus lineup be revealed?

    What’s the May 2018 PlayStation Plus lineup? And when will the May 2018 PS Plus update be announced? Another month tiptoes towards a swift conclusion, and we’re here with all of the latest PS+ rumours and speculation. When will May 2018’s free PS Plus games be announced?: Assuming...

  • News March 2018 NPD: PS4 Tops Hardware Charts as MLB Registers Record

    Home run

    Sony maintained its position atop the United States hardware charts with another impressive NPD result, outselling all other consoles in the month of March 2018. The console was buoyed by the release of MLB The Show 18, which set a franchise record during its launch month. However, Far Cry 5 unsurprisingly swept aside all competition,...

  • News Of Course There's a Final Fantasy XV Skin Pack for Minecraft

    We expected it sooner

    A Final Fantasy XV skin pack for Minecraft? But of course. The pack's available on the PlayStation Store now, coming in at £2.49 in the UK and $4.55 in North America. Square Enix's adventure joins the likes of Mass Effect and Skyrim when it comes to Minecraft add-ons. The more the merrier, we suppose. Given Final Fantasy XV's...

  • UK Sales Charts God of War Sets New Series Record

    And so does Yakuza

    The new God of War game is the series’ fastest selling entry in the UK – and that’s despite data tracking only a couple of days’ worth of physical sales. In terms of purely boxed units, it outsold God of War III by 35 per cent, but it’s worth remembering that digital sales have increased dramatically in recent years, so...

  • Talking Point What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 216

    The god father

    There’s only one game on Push Square’s lips this week, and it’s the outstanding God of War. With the title finally available worldwide, virtually all of us are beginning our adventures in Midgard this weekend. We may as well name this issue ‘God of War Edition’. Robert Ramsey, Deputy Editor: Inevitably, I will be playing...

  • Japanese Sales Charts PS4 Falls Further as Japan Suffers Seriously Slow Week

    Monster Hunter finally at 2 million

    Every now and again, the Japanese sales charts enter a slump and there's barely anything to talk about. Unfortunately, that can be said of the latest figures, which make for some yawn-inducing reading. On the software side of things, a Compile Heart title named Death end re;Quest entered the top five on...

  • Store Update 17th April 2018 (Europe)

    Norse for wear

    It’s a quiet week on the European PlayStation Store update, presumably as everything attempts to get out of the way of the only release that matters: God of War. But what’s this? SEGA delayed Yakuza 6 into the same week? Well, that was stupid. Which will you be playing first? PS4 Games: Virry VR with Drozdov 16th April VRFC...

  • UK Sales Charts Far Cry 5 Starts a Cult at Summit

    Little else going on

    Another desperately slow week for the British games industry concludes with Far Cry 5 at the top of the UK sales charts. This is its third consecutive spell at the summit, which would be nearing a Ubisoft record if God of War wasn’t waiting in the wings to steal its place. Elsewhere, the only other thing of note is Gran...

  • Talking Point What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 215

    The song of life

    The sun is shining, the weather is sweet, yeah. Makes us want to… Shut the curtains and play video games? That is how the ol’ Bob Marley song goes, right? Anyway, you know what time it is – it’s WAYP time. Sammy Barker, Editor: I’m still playing God of War, a game which still holds many secrets for me to discover...

  • News Fate/Extella Link Brings More Anime Hack and Slashing to PS4, Vita in the West This Winter

    It must be fate

    Okay, hands up if you played Fate/Extella: The Umbral Star. We're guessing that's not many of you, but those of you who did get the chance to play the 2017 hack and slash action game may be happy to know that the sequel is heading West later this year. Based on the Fate series that spans manga, anime, and a whole bunch of...

  • Japanese Sales Charts Far Cry 5 Breaks 100k, PS4 Drops Off

    Quiet on the Eastern front

    There's not much happening in the latest Japanese sales charts. A total lack of new software means that we're left analysing what's already there, and we suppose the biggest news is that Far Cry 5 has broken through 100,000 copies on PlayStation 4. That's not a bad result for Ubisoft. Elsewhere, Monster Hunter: World is...

  • Store Update 10th April 2018 (Europe)

    Virtual Rick-ality

    There are lots of little things to look forward to this week, as acclaimed platformer Owlboy is joined by Rick & Morty: Virtual Rick-ality on the PlayStation 4. Other highlights include Extinction, Regalia: Of Men and Monarchs, and Time Carnage. What are you buyin’? PS4 Games: Extinction 10th April Extinction: Deluxe...

  • PlayStation Store Sales Charts Far Cry 5 Finds the Holy Ground on PS4

    Top seller in NA and EU

    Far Cry 5 is the fastest selling game in the series, and it's been doing well in the physical charts, but what about its performance on digital storefronts? Well, Sony has detailed March's sales charts, and Ubisoft's open world shooter sits atop both the North American and European charts. Also performing well in both regi

  • UK Sales Charts Far Cry 5 Is No.1 for Second Week Running

    A quiet week

    The latest weekly UK chart is in, and, well, not a whole lot has changed. Ubisoft's Far Cry 5, the fastest selling title in the franchise, is still top of the pile. In fact, the top three hasn't changed; FIFA 18 and Sea of Thieves remain in second and third place respectively. A lack of notable new releases means the chart is largely...

  • Talking Point What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 214

    WAYP to go

    Have there really been 214 issues of WAYP? That’s almost four years’ worth of this recurring feature now – an impressive run, for sure! The premise has remained the same since the very beginning: we tell you what we’re playing; you tell us what you’re playing. Let’s dance! Sammy Barker, Editor: I guess the angry skinhead is...

  • Japanese Sales Charts Far Cry 5 Outsells Ni no Kuni II, Valkyria Chronicles 4 on PS4

    Times are changing

    The latest Japanese sales charts make for some surprisingly interesting reading. Numerous PlayStation titles have entered the top ten, with the latest Super Robot Wars game taking the number one spot. It shifted around 89,300 copies on PlayStation 4. The Vita version entered in third. Impressively, Far Cry 5 followed close behind...

  • Game of the Month Top 4 PlayStation Games of March 2018

    Cars, guns, jailbreaks, and higgledies

    As is usually the case, March was quite a busy month for PlayStation. EA actually decided to remaster a game, Ni no Kuni II finally launched, and the Ubisoft open world factory pumped out another vast adventure packed with enemy camps and hilarious bugs. Needless to say, our internal Game of the Month...

  • UK Sales Charts Far Cry 5 Is No.1, Biggest UK Launch Week in Franchise's History

    Rise up

    Far Cry 5 is Ubisoft's latest blockbuster release, and it's doing pretty well for itself so far. It debuts in the top position of the weekly chart, and has enjoyed the biggest launch in Far Cry's history -- in the UK, anyway. We're yet to see if this kind of success holds true elsewhere, but we imagine we'll see a similar story in North...
