Poll: What Will You Be Spending Your 10 Per Cent PSN Discount On?

What Will You Be Spending Your 10 Per Cent PSN Discount On?

Decisions, decisions

When you really stop and think about it, Sony's "apology" for the PlayStation Network outage over Christmas is a bit of a marketing masterstroke. While the company gets to look like it's doing right by its consumers, we'd be shocked if it didn't see an enormous spike in sales when the offer goes into effect from 09:00AM local...

Review: Shake Spears! (PlayStation Vita)

Shake Spears! (PlayStation Vita)

Meh-dieval

Free-to-play. Whenever these three words are uttered, it's hard to stifle the shudder that follows when you begin to think about microtransactions, "pay-to-win", and the other deceitful, annoying practices often associated with the whole model. There are the rare few with compelling gameplay and fair microtransactions such as Warframe,...

How Does Toukiden: Kiwami on PS4 Look Compared to the Vita Version?

Porting prowess

It seems like you can't go five minutes these days without seeing some sort of graphics comparison, and while we understand that it all gets a bit tedious, there's plenty of reason for this particular look at the difference between the PlayStation 4 and Vita versions of Toukiden: Kiwami. As you'd expect, the home console edition...

Go Dungeon Crawling in Operation Abyss: New Tokyo Legacy on Vita This April

Save Tokyo again

While the PlayStation Vita may not be seeing much love in the West, release dates for Japanese titles keep rolling in. Helping to pad out an empty month is Operation Abyss: New Tokyo Legacy, a dungeon crawler developed by the same studio behind last year's Demon Gaze. Set to deploy both physically and digitally, the title will be...

21st January 2015 (Europe)

Winged and wonderful

We may be looking at the content pipeline for a different continent, but the highlights in this week's European PlayStation Store update are identical to those in yesterday's North American refresh. That means that Citizens of Earth, Resident Evil, and Saints Row: Gat Out of Hell are all vying for your attention. The question...

Store Update: 20th January 2015 (North America)

20th January 2015 (North America)

Citizens of Spencer Mansion

If the past couple of weeks have been a little light on the PlayStation Store, then today's North American update is a concrete block in comparison. In addition to smaller gems like Splice and Citizens of Earth, it's also packing heavy hitters like Resident Evil and Saints Row: Gat Out of Hell. Let's-a-go! PS4 Games:...

Ex-Wii U Exclusive Scram Kitty DX Purrs onto PS4, Vita Very Soon

Kawaii kitty

Welsh developer Dakko Dakko got its start on PlayStation platforms, producing a couple of critically acclaimed PlayStation Minis which were later ported natively to the PlayStation Vita. However, it dumped Sony for its first major home console project, as Scram Kitty and his Buddy on Rails released as a Wii U exclusive last year. Of...

UK Sales Charts: Grand Theft Auto V Sits Pretty at Summit

Déjà vu

Zzzzz. Forget about the Green Day song Wake Me Up When September Ends, we're writing a new version, and it's called Wake Me Up When the UK Sales Charts Change. There are no surprises in this week's update, with Grand Theft Auto V, FIFA 15, and Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare all finishing at the top. Ubisoft trio Far Cry 4, The Crew, and...

Review: Fat Princess: Piece of Cake (PlayStation Vita)

Fat Princess: Piece of Cake (PlayStation Vita)

Royal fumble

You can't have your cake and eat it with free-to-play. The model's non-existent entry fee tends to pave the way for intrusive money making schemes, and in Fat Princess: Piece of Cake, it actually spoils what could be a mighty fine slice of iced sponge. Similar in concept to GungHo's uber-popular Puzzle & Dragons, this regal spin-off...

What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 52

Running late

Wow! It's been a breakneck, busy, bananas kind of week behind-the-scenes here at Push Square Towers, so apologies if our usual programming schedule has been a bit all over the place. The exciting news is that Monday's bureaucracy paved the way for Friday's exuberance, so this author is sitting here with a renewed sense of enthusiasm...

Destiny and Minecraft Topped 2014's PSN Sales Charts

Act surprised

Another day, another chance to find out 2014 sales data. This time it's quite interesting, though, as Sony has shared lists of the best selling titles on the PlayStation Network. In North America, Destiny blasted the competition and landed in first place on PS4, while in Europe, Minecraft dug its way to victory on every single console...
