The former is heading to PlayStation platforms for the...

  • UK Sales Charts Titanfall 2 Fails to Make an Impact on PS4

    FPS flops

    Despite being billed as one of the best shooter campaigns in years, Titanfall 2 has struggled to make an impact on the UK sales charts – even with the franchise making its PlayStation 4 debut. Early estimates show that the title struggled to sell half of what the original managed on the Xbox One alone, though the tracking period does...

  • Push Rewind PlayStation Plus, Dragon Ball XenoVerse 2, Skyrim

    A wonderful weeb

    The news has definitely dried up lately as new releases take centre stage, but a hack on No Man's Sky developer Hello Games' servers certainly made for some entertaining stories this week. Elsewhere, we've mostly just been reviewing everything that's coming out – we're thick in the busy Christmas period right now, folks...

  • Talking Point What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 141

    Time for change

    The clocks are changing here in the UK, which means that life's about to get approximately 3.23 per cent more depressing starting Saturday evening. It's a good thing that there's PlayStation to keep us pre-occupied from the miserable mire that this existence involves, eh? Sammy Barker, Editor: I've been yanked back into the real...

    Horror never looked so cute

As our heroine's adventure beginss, it's clear from the offset that the town is haunted, and she must go on her quest without being caught by the many ghosts that roam the streets...

  • News November's Free PlayStation Plus Games include Everybody's Gone to the Rapture on PS4

    The Deadly Tower of Monsters! DiRT 3! Costume Quest 2!

It'll be accompanied by stylish isometric shooter The Deadly Tower of Monsters on the PlayStation 4. Meanwhile,...

  • Japanese Sales Charts Battlefield 1 Blasts into First Place on PS4

    Sony's console still on top

    Battlefield 1's debut is the big talking point of the latest Japanese sales charts, with EA's World War shooter claiming the top spot of the software list. The historical foray sold through a relatively impressive 113,081 copies on PlayStation 4. Aside from NBA 2K17 entering in sixth, though, it's been another quiet...

  • Store Update 25th October 2016 (North America)

    What are you Tethered to?

    It's nice to see Sony keeping the PlayStation Store well stocked with PlayStation VR content now that the headset's out. This week sees the arrival of two new titles: Tethered and Windlands – both of which are pretty good. Sherlock Holmes: The Devil's Daughter is finally out in the US this time, too. PS4 Games: Buck...

  • News PSN Down as Engineers Work to Resolve Issues

    Offline and out

    We thought that Sony was on top of these PlayStation Network outages, but a major DDoS attack seems to have unsettled the firm's good run of form. The service is down again this morning, with the platform holder reporting that engineers are on the case as we type. Offline time has been kept to a minimum of late, so there's a good...

  • Store Update 25th October 2016 (Europe)

    All the fun of the fair

    These PlayStation Store updates get more ridiculous by the week. There are no less than 37 new PlayStation 4 games launching as part of today's European restock, though there are some bundles and duplicates padding that number out a touch. Still… What?! These are crazy times, readers. PS4 Games: Farming Simulator 17 –...

  • UK Sales Charts Battlefield 1 Beats Out Combined Week One Sales of Predecessors

    Battlefield won

    Battlefield 1 launched strongly in the UK, outselling the combined week one tally of both Battlefield 4 and Battlefield Hardline. While this is impressive, it's perhaps worth remembering that Battlefield 4's sales got off to a slightly slower start than usual due to it launching prior to the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One...

  • Push Rewind Red Dead Redemption 2, Battlefield 1, Nintendo Switch

    The ol' West

    Red Dead Redemption 2 dominated the headlines on Push Square this week – though there was a bigger industry-wide story in the form of the upcoming Nintendo Switch. Other headlines included the completion of The Last Guardian – at long last! Reviews: Battlefield 1 - 8/10 While you probably know whether you'll enjoy B

  • Talking Point What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 140

    Cobbled together

    The weekend has arrived, which means that it's time for your weekly dose of WAYP. With the holiday season in full swing, much of our team are too busy beavering away on reviews to bring you witty asides, but we're sure that you'll make up for their absence in the comments section. Jacob Hull, Reviewer: This one snuck up on me a...

  • Talking Point What November 2016 PlayStation Plus Games Do You Want?

    Take your pick

    We're not quite sure how it's happened, but apparently it's already approaching November. That means, the depressingly dark nights and cold weather are drawing ever-near here at Push Square Towers – but there's salvation in the form of the impending PlayStation Plus update. So, after the excellent October update which included...

  • News Another Friday, Another Case of PSN Being Down

    What, again?

    Eh? Is this a regular occurrence now or something? The PlayStation Network is once again having issues on a Friday, although they don't seem to be impacting everyone. We're online just fine here at Push Square, but we're seeing reports of service outages all over the web - and Sony has even acknowledged the problem on social media...

  • News Berserk and the Band of the Hawk Gets Down and Dirty in Vita Gameplay

    Puck-sized slasher

    As is the case with most of Koei Tecmo's output these days, Berserk and the Band of the Hawk will be arriving on both PlayStation 4 and Vita here in the West when it launches early next year. But even though we've already been buried by loads of current-gen gameplay, we're yet to really see any handheld footage. Fortunately for...

  • Video What Does the Nintendo Switch Mean for PlayStation?

    Changing things up

    Is the Nintendo Switch going to go up against the PlayStation 4, or is it attempting to carve out a niche all for itself? Does this really spell the end for the Vita – and potentially Sony's time in the handheld space? And are there any similarities between the House of Mario's new machine and the PlayStation maker's past...

  • Reaction Nintendo Switch Knocks the Final Nail in PS Vita's Coffin

    Game over

    The PlayStation Vita was already on its last legs, but Nintendo just delivered a swift upper-cut to its bloodied jaw. The legendary manufacturer's new Switch hybrid – great name, but it's going to take some getting used to – feels like the final form of a concept that both it and Sony have been exploring for years; the latter has let...

  • Podcast Episode 16 - PlayStation VR Review

    And Mafia III gets patted down

    So, PlayStation VR is now out in the wild, and Potter's finally got his hands on a unit, so we cut to the chase this episode and knuckle down to discuss – well, attempt to – just how the headset stacks up. We also ask the important questions: should you buy one and if you do, what games are worth your time? The...

  • Japanese Sales Charts Tomb Raider Leaps into the Top 5 as PS4 Stays Strong

    Only one VR title makes it into top 20

    Rise of the Tomb Raider jumped straight into the top five of the latest Japanese software charts on PlayStation 4, selling through 21,152 copies in second place. Not a huge amount, but it's really the only new PlayStation entry worth talking about. Well, aside from PlayStation VR Worlds, which sold through...

  • News Halloween PlayStation Store Sale Is More Treat than Trick on PS4, PS3, Vita

    Bloodborne, Fallout 4, Until Dawn, and more

    Halloween's just around the corner, so it's no surprise that Sony's unveiled this year's spooky PlayStation Store sale. A ton of games across PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and Vita have all had their prices slashed. The seasonal sale will last until the 2nd November, so you've got a decent amount of time...

  • Store Update 18th October 2016 (Europe)

    Bat and battlefield

    There are no prizes for guessing the highlight on the European PlayStation Store this week – and, no, it's not Batman: Return to Arkham. (Yes, that's actually out today!) No, top billing this time goes to Battlefield 1. Are you planning to pick up the World War I shooter? PS4 Games: World of Final Fantasy Dungeon Demo (Not in...

  • News Berserk and the Band of the Hawk's Opening Movie Is Full of Blood and Guts

    As you'd expect

    Publisher Koei Tecmo has slapped Berserk and the Band of the Hawk's opening movie up on YouTube, and it's a pretty good watch. Clocking in at almost two minutes, we suppose that it's a decent little introduction to the world of Berserk and its dark fantasy tone. Plus, that bit where Guts chucks his sword straight into Zodd's face?...

  • News World of Final Fantasy Demo Is Out Now on PS4, Vita

    What a world

    Want an early look at World of Final Fantasy? If so, you'd do well to hop onto the PlayStation Store right now and seek out the game's newly released demo.

  • Talking Point What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 139

    VR you ready?

    The majority of Push Square Towers will be avoiding the real-world this weekend, as we strap ourselves into Sony's virtual reality world via PlayStation VR. With such a gigantic launch offering, there are tons of titles for us to work our way through, so it's goodbye sunlight from us. Sammy Barker, Editor: I'm playing Ace Banana...

  • News 7 Minutes of Berserk Gameplay Slices Up a Storm on PS4

    Keep on carving

    The Japanese PlayStation Blog has released around seven minutes of gameplay footage from Berserk and the Band of the Hawk, which launches in the Land of the Rising Sun later this month. Featuring a Golden Age Guts, the video goes over all of his available actions, including charged combos, timely parries, and special attacks. All...

  • Japanese Sales Charts PS4 Enjoys Another Week at the Top

    Holding steady

    Unless you really like Monster Hunter spin-offs, there's not really much to talk about when it comes to the latest Japanese sales charts. Capcom's new Nintendo 3DS title unsurprisingly topped the software list, while the only fresh PlayStation release to make the top 20 was BlazBlue: Central Fiction. The stylish fighting game sequel...
