What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 41

Neon pie

We’re teetering on the precipice of gameageddon. Our super secret review document is filled with titles, reviewers have been assigned, and Push Square Towers is awash with complaints regarding the length of certain releases. Anybody would think that we’d entered the third circle of Hell or something. Still, with such animation behind...

Store Preview: DriveClub, Alien: Isolation, NBA 2K15, PlayStation Plus Freebies

DriveClub, Alien: Isolation, NBA 2K15, PlayStation Plus Freebies

It's full of stars

PlayStation Store updates can be dreadfully disappointing affairs. You wait all week for them to come around, only to find that there’s nothing in the lineup that you want to buy. We’re confident that that won’t be the case this coming Tuesday, however, as Sony has compiled one of the most exciting software rosters in...

Reaction: EGX London Hammers Another Nail in PS Vita's Coffin

EGX London Hammers Another Nail in PS Vita's Coffin

Dead too soon

Sony managed to squeeze a double-decker bus onto its booth at EGX London last week, but we didn’t spot a single PlayStation Vita. The flailing format has been largely ignored at the platform holder’s various press conferences this year, but has always enjoyed a strong showfloor presence, with titles such as Freedom Wars and

What Do the PlayStation Vita's First Themes Look Like?

Suits you, sir

Unlike the PlayStation 4, the PlayStation Vita has always been relatively customisable. Straight out of the box, Sony allowed you to personalise the platform’s bubbly user interface with different colours and pictures – but that functionality’s evolved today. As part of the portable’s v3.30 firmware update, the company has...

Firmware Update 3.30 Brightens Up PS Vita with Themes

Dream theme

Want to know what’s better than first-party games? Themes, of course! Sony may have more or less pulled the plug on internal PlayStation Vita development, but at least it’s released a new firmware update that promises to bring a slew of pretty patterns to your favourite portable. Beginning today, you’ll be able to

DriveClub, Dust, and Spelunky Free for PS4 in October PS Plus Update

Batman: Arkham Asylum, Pix the Cat, and more up for grabs

Hold onto your hats, folks – it’s the monthly PlayStation Plus update for October. Always a momentous occasion – whether you’re a fan of Sony’s recent giveaways or not – this month is definitely the largest in some time. That’s partly due to the headline addition: DriveClub:...

Store Update: 1st October 2014 (Europe)

1st October 2014 (Europe)

Wiped out

As is often the case, this week’s European PlayStation Store update isn’t quite as exciting as its North American counterpart. That doesn’t mean that there’s not a ton to look forward to, though, as Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor, Futuridium EP Deluxe, and Natural Doctrine all take centre stage. The full lin

Fight the Urge to Fritter Your Finances in European PSN Sale

How low can you go?

Everyone loves an impulse purchase, but the sheer number of savings on the PlayStation Store these days is getting out of hand. Not long after discounting a number of smaller PlayStation 4 titles, Sony has announced that it’s cutting the price of a bunch of PlayStation 3 and Vita releases, too. All available from today in...

Store Update: 30th September 2014 (North America)

30th September 2014 (North America)

Lord of the updates

Yes, the holiday rush has arrived. This week’s North American PlayStation Store update is so big, we’re not entirely sure if the online plaza will be able to cope with it all. In addition to heavy hitters such as Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor and Persona 4 Arena Ultimax, there are also biggies like Sherlock Holmes: Crimes...

UK Sales Charts: FIFA 15 Kicks Destiny Off the Top

Got some balls

That didn’t last long, did it? To be fair, a quick glance at the release calendar would have told you that Destiny wouldn’t be dominating the UK sales charts forever – especially with FIFA 15 looming on the horizon. And, unsurprisingly, it’s the soccer simulation that’s knocked Bungie’s first-person shooter off the top,...

What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 40

Pad it out

I don’t care if Monday’s blue, Tuesday’s grey and Wednesday, too; Thursday, I don’t care about you – it’s Saturday, I’m in love. Alright, we lazily adapted the lyrics, but you get the idea, right? Unlike ordinary editions of What Are You Playing, this has been organised extremely early, because much of the Push Square team...

OlliOlli 2 Brings Skateboarding Shenanigans to PS4 and Vita in 2015

This is not a drill

OlliOlli is one of the PlayStation Vita's hidden gems; a game so infectiously addictive that it should probably be outlawed. So with this in mind, we're delighted - if slightly concerned - to report that the indie darling will be receiving a sequel. Set to launch on PlayStation 4 and Vita in March 2015, the game is officially...

Store Update: 24th September 2014 (Europe)

24th September 2014 (Europe)

Ballin'

No prizes for guessing the biggest new release on the European PlayStation Store this week – it’s FIFA 15. EA Sports’ soccer sim will deploy at various points over the coming days depending on where you live, so check your local release schedule for more information. It’s joined this week by a handful of hot arrivals, including the...

23rd September 2014 (North America)

Back of the net

We’ll resist the temptation to overload Push Square’s homepage with thumbnails of football players, so instead we’ll focus on some of the other games that are joining FIFA 15 on the PlayStation Store this week. Top mentions include Ar Nosurge: Ode to an Unborn Star, Flockers, and CastleStorm: Definitive Edition – but we’ll...
