Store Update: 3rd February 2015 (North America)

3rd February 2015 (North America)

Plus one

The weekly North American PlayStation Store update is an institution here at Push Square Towers, as we pop on our favourite Britney Spears record, and set to work formatting the most tedious article in existence. Fortunately, there's some top-notch stuff to look forward to this time, including Apotheon, Game of Thrones: Episode 2, and all...

Out This Week: Apotheon, Game of Thrones: Episode 2, PlayStation Plus Freebies

Apotheon, Game of Thrones: Episode 2, PlayStation Plus Freebies

Please be excited

Admit it: you thought that we were going to miss this edition of Out This Week, didn't you? We've been pretty steadfast with our New Year's Resolutions so far, but the absence of Push Rewind on Sunday – in lieu of a timely Dying Light review – means that we've broken our personal promise, which is to be a bit more consistent...

Tesco's Selling Off the PlayStation Vita for £49

Cheaper than a digital copy of Dying Light

Board up your bunkers because it seems like UK supermarket Tesco is dumping the PlayStation Vita like a hot potato. With the console becoming nicher by the day, the retail giant is clearly fed up of the format filling up its store rooms, and has cut the console's price to just £49.00 ($74). Sadly, this...

You May Want to Skip This Senran Kagura Estival Versus Video if You're at Work

Booby trap

Senran Kagura is not exactly known for its subtlety, and this trailer for the forthcoming PlayStation 4 and Vita escapade Senran Kagura Estival Versus is no different. In addition to some seriously NSFW semi-nude ninjas, you'll get a decent glimpse at the game itself, including its 25 playable characters – and tantalising threads. For...

UK Sales Charts: There Ain't Nothing to See Here

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare back on top

Dying Light should, by right, have given the UK sales charts a bit of shake up this week, but seeing as it only released digitally in Europe last Wednesday, brace yourselves for a familiar top ten. Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare did manage to strong arm Grand Theft Auto V from the summit, following a...

What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 54

Every day and night, babe

Ah, the weekend – that pleasant period of the week where we get to hang up our work clothes, and sit around playing games in our pants. Oh, and when we say 'pants', we mean the British definition of the word, and not the oddball American meaning. Is that enough padding for this opening paragraph? Yeah, looks good –...

Anime Fighter Dengeki Bunko: Fighting Climax is Punching West on Vita and PS3

Manga mayhem

The Vita is no stranger to Japanese games, much to the delight of many anime and manga enthusiasts. Adding to the now bulging library, SEGA has announced that 2-D brawler Dengeki Bunko: Fighting Climax is coming West. It's a colourful and fast fighter that features characters from a Japanese publication of the same name, and as such,...

You're Not Sick of LEGO Games, Are You?

Jurassic World, Marvel's Avengers, and more on the way

While the likes of Call of Duty and Assassin's Creed frequently get lambasted for being annualised, Warner Bros seems to have gotten away with milking LEGO like a particularly profitable cash cow. Last year saw the release of four fresh toy-based adaptations, and we'll be getting a further...

Set Sail with Four Brand New One Piece: Pirate Warriors 3 Character Trailers

A new challenger

Ah, Warriors games. Thanks to their often massive character rosters, there are plenty of excuses to swamp fans in videos and screenshots, and we've got four such trailers for you today. Showcasing the movesets of returning fighters Smoker, Buggy, and Mihawk, along with newcomer Tashigi, there's plenty of footage to heighten those...

Sony Tempting Fate with Friday 13th New York Event

Will announce new PlayStation initiative

PlayStation MVPs are essentially Sony super fans who get invited to various internal events as a reward for being top-tier consumers. They're also occasionally privy to information that they're not supposed to publicly share – like this email that popped up on NeoGAF earlier this evening. We suspect that a...

28th January 2015 (Europe)

The strange life

There's plenty to look forward to on the European PlayStation Store this week, with rotting flesh and troubled teenagers the headline arrivals. That's right, both Dying Light and Life Is Strange will be available to download this week, with Grim Fandango Remastered, Baboon, and

Sony also pulling the plug on YouTube

This isn't going to do anything to reassure people that the PlayStation Vita is alive and well. Sony has announced this morning that it will be discontinuing support for the YouTube, Maps, and Near applications on its flagship handheld soon. The video streaming software will be delisted from the PlayStation...

27th January 2015 (North America)

Manny, oh man

This week's North American PlayStation Store update is all about the addition of two new titles: Dying Light and Grim Fandango Remastered. The heavy hitters have some company in Life Is Strange (out on Friday) and the verbose Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth2: Sisters Generation – but we suspect that it's the aforementioned that will...

Review: Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth2: Sisters Generation (PlayStation Vita)

Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth2: Sisters Generation (PlayStation Vita)

A real mouthful

We all know the dreaded curse of video game sequels. Studios will often find themselves with a hit on their hands, and in a feeble attempt to recreate gold, will instead serve up a horrible mess of lost potential. Japanese role-playing game Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth2: Sisters Generation steers clear of this trap, instead...

UK Sales Charts: Saints Row Misses Out on Four More Years

Voted out

Saints Row IV: Re-Elected & Gat Out of Hell missed out on the presidency spot in this week's UK sales charts, clawing its way into fourth position overall. Grand Theft Auto V was instead sworn into the White House, completing a third term at the summit of the British best sellers list, while Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare and FIFA 15...
