15th March 2016 (North America)

Para-on

As in Europe, it's EA Sports UFC 2 and Salt and Sanctuary that are the headline new additions to the North American PlayStation Store this week – though those of you over the Atlantic also have Bubble Bobble to keep you entertained. Other additions include the Paragon Early Access pack, as well as Senran Kagura Estival Versus, too. PS4...

15th March 2016 (Europe)

Tale of the tape

It's the quietest week on the European PlayStation Store in a long, long time – but that doesn't mean the plaza's pulling any punches. EA Sports UFC 2 is arguably the biggest new arrival, but the hotly anticipated Salt & Sanctuary is also out today. This week also sees the arrival of Paragon's early access option, which is...

News: Hollow Realization Is Shaping Up to Be the Best Sword Art Online Game Yet

Hollow Realization Is Shaping Up to Be the Best Sword Art Online Game Yet

Fingers crossed

Going by what we've seen of Sword Art Online: Hollow Realization so far, this could potentially be the best game that the property has spawned. While Sword Art Online Re: Hollow Fragment and Sword Art Online: Lost Song are both enjoyable role-playing adventures, they certainly aren't perfect, so we're hoping that this upcoming...

Push Rewind: The Division, Hitman PS4, and Uncharted 4

The Division, Hitman PS4, and Uncharted 4

The big guns

This was a big week for new releases, with both The Division and Hitman arriving on the PlayStation 4. Just like the rest of the press, we weren't able to get our hands on Ubisoft Massive's Manhattan-based shooter until launch day, so those waiting for a review can anticipate one once we've fully put it through its paces. You'll find...

Review: SwapQuest (PS Vita)

SwapQuest (PS Vita)

Swapsies

SwapQuest is a re-adapted mobile game which consists of a heady mix of both puzzles and role-playing elements that go together like strawberries and cream. The story is set in a peaceful kingdom called Aventana, a realm named after a magical sword which was once used to save its people from a terrifying evil known as the Horde. This threat...

What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 109

Growing pains

And thus marks the end to a clumsy week, where your humble host has messed up his elbow and pulled a muscle in his neck. The weekend brings the promise of rest and relaxation – or at least it would if we didn't have a handful of previews to write ahead of their embargo lifting next week. FML. Sammy Barker, Editor: I've barely...

News: February 2016 NPD: PS4 Extends Its Lead as US Sales Shrink

February 2016 NPD: PS4 Extends Its Lead as US Sales Shrink

Sony's system up year-over-year yet again

We suppose that these NPD reports are starting to get a little bittersweet. As has been the case since launch, the PlayStation 4 is really thriving in the United States, and it's once again managed to register yet another consecutive month of growth. But while the graphs at Sony keep pointing upwards, the...

Episode 2 - The Return

Guess who's back?

So, a little over a week ago, Ben Potter and myself posted the very first Push Square Podcast, which you can listen to here if you haven't already. You guys seemed to like it and the feedback received has been fantastically positive, for which we're incredibly grateful. Mushy stuff aside, the podcast has been formally g

8th March 2016 (North America)

Urban chaos

We're a little late posting the North American PlayStation Store update, but we're sure that you'll forgive us this transgression as we were busy protecting Manhattan from looters. The big new release this week, then, is The Division – but it's been accompanied by a whole host of hot digital downloads. Let's get stuck in. PS4 Games:...

Japanese Sales Charts: Gundam Breaks into the Top Spot as PS4 and Vita Lead the Way

Meching up the numbers

Ah, nothing like a good Gundam game to shake up the Japanese hardware and software charts, eh? Gundam Breaker 3 blasted into first and second place on PlayStation 4 and Vita respectively, selling through a reasonably impressive 141,219 copies in total - now we just need to hope that the mech-'em-up has found enough success...

8th March 2016 (Europe)

A big week for PS4

There are a fair few PlayStation 4 games hitting the PlayStation Store this week in Europe. The headliner here is obviously Tom Clancy's The Division, but there's a nice amount of variety elsewhere, with PlayStation Plus Vote to Play nominees Action Henk and Assault Android Cactus adding some flavour. What's more, Hitman, Samurai...

The big question

A week of experimentation concludes with something very familiar – it's WAYP time. For those of you who are near – we could probably use a recap every over 100 issues – this is the article where we all come together to discuss what we're planning to play over the course of the weekend.
