Poll: Would You Sell Back Your Digital PS4 Games for PSN Credit?

Would You Sell Back Your Digital PS4 Games for PSN Credit?

Trade and untested

There's a Microsoft survey doing the rounds that proposes the idea of "selling back" digital games for store credit. In the questionnaire, it hypothesises a potential scenario where you could essentially relinquish rights to any of the non-physical games stored on your hard drive in return for 10 per cent of the purchase price...

UK Sales Charts: The Division Causes UFC 2 to Submit

Twisted its arm

The Division is very much the flavour of the month, so it's no surprise to see it fend off EA Sports UFC 2 in the latest UK sales chart, which finished in second. The sequel bettered sales of its predecessor by 53 per cent, but that wasn't anywhere near enough to overcome Ubisoft's looter shooter. Further down, Call of Duty: Black...

PlayStation VR, Supercharged PS4 Rumours, Cross-Network Play

Phew

This was arguably the biggest week of the PlayStation year so far, with GDC 2016 bringing PlayStation VR date and price details. That news was accompanied by rumours of supercharged PlayStation 4 console, as well as Microsoft's decision to enable cross-platform play.

What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 110

Hearth fire

It's the weekend, it's almost Easter, and the evenings are getting lighter all of the time: the summer is coming, folks. Alas, it's still too cold to go outside and do sociable things, so we'll be spending all of our time with our PlayStation platforms of choice. The eternal question is: what will we be playing?

Count Down to Zero Time Dilemma's 28th June Vita Release

Tick tock

Isn't there a Muse song where Matt Bellamy wails about time running out? Never was a fan, but your host can't get that track out of his head now. Anyway, as promised, Aksys Games has announced that the third entry in the Zero Escape series, Zero Time Dilemma, will launch on the PlayStation Vita from 28th June in North America and Europe...

Japanese Sales Charts: The Division Puts a Bullet in the Competition on PS4

Critical hit

Tom Clancy's The Division has started life impressively well in Japan, topping the software charts on PlayStation 4. Ubisoft's role-playing shooter hybrid sold through a very healthy 80,703 copies, which was more than enough to place it above the likes of The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD. Elsewhere, the new Summon Night game...

Almost Every Big PS4 Game Discounted in Gigantic EU PSN Sale

Better than a chocolate egg

"It just keeps going", editor Sammy Barker remarked upon checking out the EU PlayStation Store's gigantic Easter sale - and he's not wrong. Spread across PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and Vita, the amount of discounted games seems endless - but at least that means you're more likely to find something that tickles your...

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...

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.

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.

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...
