  • Store Update 12th January 2016 (North America)

    Banner update

    Big week on the North American PlayStation Store, as the likes of Gone Home and The Banner Saga drag the PlayStation 4 kicking and screaming into 2016. Assassin's Creed Chronicles: India is also up for grabs this time, while the latest PlayStation 2 classic – Arc the Lad: Twilight of the Spirits – stops by for some...

  • News The Witcher 3 Sweeps Game of the Year Awards on Official PlayStation Blog

    Geralt of here

    Geralt's at it again, adding yet more trophies to his now massive collection. The official PlayStation Blog's Game of the Year winners are in, and it's The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt that's walked away boasting several victories across multiple categories. The post reports that over 600,000 votes were counted, making it the biggest Game...

  • Store Update 12th January 2016 (Europe)

    Where's Gone Home?

    Seeing as Majesco's done a Jennifer Lawrence and decided to stop responding to our emails, we were looking forward to waking up, buying Gone Home, and bringing you a review later today. Unfortunately, SCEE's rained on our parade as the game won't be joining its North American counterpart in the PlayStation Store's abode today...

  • News Not a Hero Takes a Bullet to the Brain on Vita

    Portable version cancelled

    Terrific looking indie slide-'em-up shooter Not a Hero is coming to PlayStation 4 on the 2nd February - as we've literally just reported - but there's some sad news buried under the celebrations. Indeed, the Vita version of the game's been cancelled. The disappointing news comes from developer Roll7's official blog,...

  • News Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 Packs Up Its Swimsuit Until 24th March

    Put on ice

    Koei Tecmo seemingly needs just a little more time to touch up Dead or Alive Xtreme 3's tan lines, as the summer holiday simulator has been delayed on the PlayStation 4 and Vita from 25th February to 24th March in Japan. Remember, there's no Western release date confirmed just yet as the publisher has stressed that it feels the game is...

  • UK Sales Charts Best Sellers, Best Sellers Never Change

    Zzz

    Nothing to see here, folks. The UK sales charts have barely changed for nearing a month now, and that remains true this week, with Call of Duty: Black Ops III on top yet again. FIFA 16 managed to bump Star Wars Battlefront down into third, while Grand Theft Auto V overtook Fallout 4 in fourth. The only real surprise this time is that Battlefield...

  • Push Rewind PSN Downtime, PlayStation VR Price Points, and Mass Effect Hints

    Back to work we go

    It's the first week back in the office, but it's been an absolutely huge few days here at Push Square Towers. In addition to the PlayStation Network going down, Oculus also revealed just how expensive virtual reality's going to be by pricing its Rift, while we also got some teases regarding Mass Effect: Andromeda. Reviews:...

  • Talking Point What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 100

    Triple digits

    We've only gone and reached our 100th edition of WAYP – an occasion that would be worth marking if this author hadn't got in a muddle and assumed that this week's instalment was actually Issue 99. Whoops. Oh well, at least we've got a bumper article this week for you, with virtually every Push Square team member turning out in force...

  • News Whoops, Sony Made a Mistake with Your January PS Plus Games

    War does change

    We sincerely hope that you weren't super excited to play the blockbuster that is Legends of War: Patton's Campaign on your PlayStation Vita this month, as Sony has stated that its inclusion in January's PlayStation Plus game selection was a mistake. Damn and blast, etc. Thankfully, all hope is not lost, as the company has revealed...

  • News PS4 Sells Over 1 Million Units in Japan in 2015

    Could be worse

    Okay, okay, we get that the Japanese console market is in decline - we just posted a story about it, in fact - but Sony will at least feel that something positive has been achieved with the PlayStation 4 in 2015. The company's newest system sold 1.2 million units in Japan last year according to Famitsu's annual hardware and software...

  • News Japan's Console Market Wasn't Too Hot in 2015

    Lowest figures in 26 years

    We all know at this point that Japan's console market has shrunk. We could go on and on about the factors that have lead to such a decline, but let's just cut straight to the chase: 2015 saw the market hit a 26 year low. What this means is that the overall value of the market continued to fall, with it being worth ¥321...

  • Japanese Sales Charts PS4 and Vita Continue Strong Seasonal Performance

    Brothers in arms

    The latest sales charts from the East are in, confirming that the last seven days have once again been pretty darn solid for the Japanese market. As expected of the season, hardware figures continued to enjoy a healthy boost, as PlayStation 4 sales increased to 65,427 units, while Vita managed a very respectable 63,811 units...

  • Store Update 5th January 2016 (Europe)

    Back in business

    It's the first European PlayStation Store update of the year, which means that we're nervously eyeing the date in the headline to ensure that we don't write '2015'. To be fair, it's a decent refresh, too, with Hardware: Rivals and Amplitude all on the docket. What will you be celebrating the onset of the new year with? PS4 Games:...

  • News Sony Pledges Free PlayStation Plus Extensions After PSN Outage

    Reimbursements on the way

    If you'd have asked us to evaluate the state of the PlayStation Network this time last week, we'd have told you that it's improved significantly. Seriously, the service barely went down in 2015, and it was rock solid over Christmas. But the Sony rollercoaster never runs out of corkscrews, and, just as everyone was...

  • News PSN Down Just Days into 2016

    That was fast

    Oh dear, and there we were praising the PlayStation Network for its stability over the holidays. Sony's online service is currently down for us here in the UK, and we're now getting reports that it's offline for many of you Americans, too. Follow us on Twitter for PSN updates At the time of writing, we can't even sign in, and Sony...

  • UK Sales Charts Ain't No Beating Call of Duty: Black Ops III

    Back in black

    Call of Duty has become such a strange series. Much like FIFA, it feels like – review time aside – the franchise barely gets any coverage on mainstream websites, and yet year after year it dominates the sales charts. Perhaps it spotlights the contrast between so-called "hardcore gamers" and more casual players – but whatever...

  • Round Up All Our Game of the Year Coverage in One Place

    That's a wrap

    Game of the Year is finished for another year – and this time we were organised, ahead of schedule, and not too stressed. For this author in particular, putting together our end of year lists is always a highlight, as it provides a great way to bring the team together and collaborate on a series of seasonal articles.

    Final countdown

    Blimey oh riley, 2016's all up in my face and that bottle of bourbon's making it difficult to stomach. But before this intoxicated video editor chunders all over a blank page, perhaps you'd enjoy our pre-recorded video spotlighting the top ten PlayStation titles from the past 12 months. There's some good stuff in here, like...
