  • Store Update 31st May 2016 (North America)

    (Burn) out of bounds

    Dangerous Golf arrives on the PlayStation 4 this week – or should that be PlayStation Fore?! It's joined by some proper badass birdies, including Oxenfree and The Witcher III: Wild Hunt – Blood and Wine. If you don't fancy sipping on either of those then there's quite literally a dozen other releases vying for your attention...

  • Store Update 31st May 2016 (Europe)

    Better late than never

  • News Your June PlayStation Plus Games Have Been Revealed

    NBA 2K16 and Gone Home confirmed

    We hope that you're in the mood for shootin' some hoops, because NBA 2K16 is dribbling into June's PlayStation Plus selection. And, as previously rumoured, indie darling Gone Home will be joining the basketball sim on PlayStation 4. Not a bad combination, we suppose? Meanwhile, PlayStation 3 users can look forward...

  • UK Sales Charts Overwatch Bumps Uncharted 4 from Summit

    Almost 50 per cent of physical sales on PS4

    Channelling its best Reinhardt impression, Overwatch has swatted Uncharted 4: A Thief's End from the top of the UK sales charts. Naughty Dog's impressive action adventure was frozen in second place by Mei, while the popular FPS used Widowmaker's rifle to get a good view from the summit. Word of mouth...

  • News Akiba's Beat Strips Off in Famitsu This Week

    Beat off

    Stripping sim Akiba's Trip was an oddity worthy of attention when it released on various PlayStation formats a few years back, so Akiba's Beat should draw some interest this week. Acquire's teasing a full reveal in this week's Famitsu magazine, with a teaser website also counting down to a 2nd June reveal. While the name hints at some...

    Ils sont les meilleurs

    Champions League final day has arrived, which means that we're hours away from seeing two cagey Spanish teams cancel each other out for 90 minutes. That's not stopped the British contingent of Push Square Towers from feeling giddy, though, with Euro 2016 mere weeks away as well. Toss in the Olympics and Wimbledon, too, and who...

  • News Rock Those Blocks, Dragon Quest Builders Is Heading West This Year on PS4, Vita

    Building a bridge to your heart

    Phew. For a minute there, we were beginning to doubt that Dragon Quest Builders would ever sail overseas, but Square Enix has delivered some good news. The clearly Minecraft-inspired role-playing release will be heading West later this year on both PlayStation 4 and PS Vita. We bet that you're relieved to hear that,...

  • News Even Mighty No. 9's Developer Thinks the Latest Trailer Is Trash

    "Unforgivable"

    This is a story that just keeps getting better and better. After more delays than we care to remember and countless promotional cock-ups, Mighty No. 9 isn't exactly in the best shape leading up to its launch next month on the 21st June. Yesterday, publisher Deep Silver released this trailer, which went down really, really badly with...

  • News Behold the Mighty No.9 Trailer People Are Tearing to Bits

    "Cry like an anime fan on prom night"

    Mighty No.9's been stuck between a rock(man) and a hard place for as long as we can remember, and its situation doesn't seem to be improving, even as we near its 21st June release date. The crowdfunded sidescroller looks as rough as ever in its newest trailer, and the 800 dislikes that sit on its YouTube page...

  • Japanese Sales Charts Uncharted 4 Holds on to the Top Spot for Second Week Running

    Drake's moderate fortune

    Anyone who's played an Uncharted game will know of Nathan Drake's insane ability to grip even the smallest environmental outcrop, but rather than hanging on for dear life, Uncharted 4: A Thief's End is actually enjoying its time at the top of the Japanese software charts for the second week in a row. The PlayStation 4...

  • Store Update 24th May 2016 (North America)

    Gin blossoms

    The biggest new addition to the North American PlayStation Store this week? It's not Overwatch, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants in Manhattan, or Downwell – it's the addition of Hey Jealousy to the Rock Band 4 store. Love that song. PS4 Games: Crazy Strike Bowling EX (Out 5/25) $12.99 Downwell (Cross Buy) $4.99 Dungeons...

  • News Toukiden 2's Looking Sharp in New PS4 Gameplay Trailer

    Demonic dismemberment

    There's something incredibly satisfying about lopping off the limbs of giant demons in Toukiden, and we're glad that Toukiden 2's new trailer seems to agree with us. Full of hacks, slashes, and weird, powerful spirit hands, the action role-playing title's fresh video's full of new gameplay clips. Due out later this year on...

  • Store Update 24th May 2016 (Europe)

    Be a hero

    It's not the biggest European PlayStation Store update ever this time, but there are still some big names vying for your attention.

    Ah, June – one of those months where its first day happens to be a Wednesday.

  • UK Sales Charts Uncharted 4 Clings on to Top Spot

    Gold

    Sony's enjoying a real strong spell at the top of the UK sales charts, as Uncharted 4: A Thief's End is the latest title from the publisher to enjoy successive weeks at the summit. Sales for Nate Drake's latest did drop sharply after its record breaking launch, meaning that DOOM was clipping at its heels – but Naughty Dog's outstanding...

  • Push Rewind Sony E3 Presser Timing, DOOM, Shadow of the Beast

    Gran Turismo Sport! Homefront: The Revolution! More!

    This week was overshadowed by the dread that Sony announcing its E3 2016 press conference onset. It's another late one here at Push Square Towers, but at least it'll be all over soon. Amid panic attacks, we reviewed old-school revivals DOOM and Shadow of the Beast, interviewed one of the writers...

    Hoooo, boy – is that the end of another week? It means that we're one step closer to E3, which is both terrifying and exciting all at the same time. Still, we should probably make the most of these final moments of quiet while we can, and what better way to enjoy the silence than with some games? Here's what we're...

  • News NA PSN Flash Sale Asks You to Surrender Your Wallet

    Give it up

    Online speculation had suggested that Sony may roll out a Flash Sale on the North American PlayStation Store this week, and it's turned out to be true. While it's yet to be officially confirmed on the PlayStation Blog, the discounts are live right now and ready to be taken advantage of. The question is: is your wallet up to the task?...

  • Poll Which Uncharted Game Is the Best?

    Draaaaake!

    We bet that some of you saw this one coming. Naughty Dog's hardly put a foot wrong with Nathan Drake, the luckiest man alive and protagonist of the Uncharted series. Although Uncharted: Drake's Fortune didn't quite set the world alight when it launched back in 2007, we're not sure that anyone could have anticipated the runaway success...

  • Japanese Sales Charts Uncharted 4 Climbs Above the Competition

    PS4 sticks to the top, too

    Uncharted 4: A Thief's End has enjoyed reasonably healthy opening sales in Japan, claiming the top spot on the software charts and selling through 128,725 copies. While not a huge amount, it's a good start for the PlayStation 4 exclusive, and we'd wager that it'll stick around in the top 20 for a couple of weeks at...

    If you were lucky enough to nab a Grand Kingdom beta code earlier this month, then you'll know that Spike Chunsoft's role-playing release certainly has potential.

    Rise up

    It's an absolutely massive week on the North American PlayStation Store, with the PlayStation 4 fronting the charge.

    Beast feast

    If you're a PlayStation 4 owner, then prepare to rejoice: this week's roster of new digital releases is frankly frightening. Shadow of the Beast and Valkyria Chronicles Remastered are the obvious highlights, but special mention must be reserved for Kinetica and Wild Arms 3. There's also Homefront: The Revolution due out later this week...

  • News Dragon Quest Heroes II's Opening Movie Is a Real Charmer

    Heroic effort

    If there's one thing that the Dragon Quest series has always had, it's bucketloads of charm - and there's plenty of that on show in Dragon Quest Heroes II's opening cutscene. Square Enix has put the movie online for us all to enjoy before the hack and slash title launches later this month in Japan, and we've embedded it below. The...

  • UK Sales Charts Uncharted 4 Smashes Predecessor's Sales on PS4

    Draking it in

    With some inevitability, Uncharted 4: A Thief's End has become the fastest selling entry in Naughty Dog's popular action adventure series to date in the UK, with sales of the PlayStation 4 exclusive bettering those of PlayStation 3 predecessor Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception by 66 per cent.

  • News April 2016 NPD: Dark Souls III, Ratchet & Clank, MLB 16 The Show Up Top for PS4

    Update: PS4 was best selling console

    Sony slumped to a shock defeat in April 2015's unexpected NPD sales report, but this year all three major console manufacturers have declined to comment on hardware numbers. Whatever the reason for that, the manufacturer can take heart from some pretty outstanding software performers – including Ratchet &...

  • Japanese Sales Charts PS4 Still Top Despite a Total Lack of New Games

    Zzzzzzz

    It's been a boring few weeks for the Japanese hardware and software charts, and we're afraid that there's no excitement to be found this time around, either. PlayStation 4 sales dropped by about 4000 units, but Sony's latest system still managed to stick to the top spot - that is, if you don't count New 3DS and New 3DS LL numbers as one...

  • Store Update 10th May 2016 (North America)

    Uncharted territory

    It's a smaller North American PlayStation Store update this time, but no less lacking in blockbusters. Uncharted 4: A Thief's End is the undeniable highlight, but a special mention must be reserved for DOOM. Someone will probably be interested in that new Neptunia game, too. Maybe? PS4 Games: Uncharted 4: A Thief's End $59.99...

  • Store Update 10th May 2016 (Europe)

    One last time

    It's the very definition of a short but sweet week on the European PlayStation Store this time, with a little game called… Well, Uncharted 4: A Thief's End available. That's right, Naughty Dog's opus is finally out now, and it's not the only blockbuster in this update. Indeed, first-person shooter DOOM is also due out on Friday. What...

  • UK Sales Charts Battleborn Reaches Number One, But...

    Ratchet & Clank still best selling individual game

    We're not entirely sure how, but Battleborn has managed to top the UK sales charts. There is a big "but" that simply must follow this sentence, however, as Ratchet & Clank was still the best-selling game of the week in terms of individual units. What does this mean, then? Basically, the only...

  • Push Rewind Uncharted 4, Call of Duty, Battlefield 1, Persona 5

    All of the blockbusters

    It was AAA week on Push Square this time, as we reviewed arguably the most anticipated PlayStation 4 game yet in Uncharted 4: A Thief's End and also covered the reveals of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare and Battlefield 1. Elsewhere, Persona 5 got a Japanese release date for good measure – a busy one all around, then...

    A bit of inside baseball: your humble host is horrible at organising WAYP every week.

This time it's finally come to bite this shamed...

  • Japanese Sales Charts PS4 Still Number One After a Slow Few Weeks

    King of the hill

    The gaming market's been relatively quiet in Japan over the last few weeks as far as PlayStation goes, but despite a lack of new, blockbuster software, Sony's latest machine has remained at the top of the hardware charts - and that was the case again last week. The only new PS4 title worth mentioning is Konami's fun looking...

  • Game of the Month Top 4 PlayStation Games of April 2016

    A lot of aliens, agents, and Ashen Ones

    March was an unusually quiet month for new releases, but don't worry: April appears to have picked up the slack.

  • Store Update 3rd May 2016 (Europe)

    Battletorn

    There are a decent amount of new releases hitting the European PlayStation Store this week, but we're not sure if they'll be to everyone's liking - mostly because Battleborn is the one title that we'd single out as a highlight, despite there being no hype whatsoever surrounding its launch. Anyway, peruse what's up for grabs, then tell us...

  • UK Sales Charts Ratchet & Clank Stays Top for a Second Week

    Crank it up

    There ain't no budging Ratchet & Clank from the summit of the UK sales charts, as it's scored a second successive week at the top following its first ever number one last time. The game's sales only dipped by 50 per cent compared to its launch week, which is really rather impressive – games tend to drop off in sales quickly...

    The saga continues

    Mighty No. 9, also known as Kickstarter Mega Man: The Eternal Struggle, supposedly has a release date.

    The April showers are particularly unpredictable at Push Square Towers right now, which means that we have an excellent excuse not to brave the outdoors – after all, no one likes getting wet if they can help it.

    It's not out here in the West for quite a while yet, but Sword Art Online: Hollow Realization continues to look like the best PlayStation title that the popular property has spawned, at least, as far as we're concerned.

    Another dungeon crawling role-playing game from Japanese developer Experience, Ray Gigant is a good entry point to an often complex genre, boasting streamlined mechanics, an enjoyable story, and decent cast of characters.
