Remember, PSN Will Be Undergoing Maintenance Later Today

Strap yourself in

The service will be partially unavailable from 17:00PM GMT until 20:30PM GMT, meaning that you won't be able to access account management, the PlayStation Store, and various online...

Slay away

Building upon Toukiden: The Age Of Demons' already solid foundation, Toukiden: Kiwami introduces several new weapon types and battle styles that you can apply to your custom character. Along with heavy clubs and a polearms, you can even equip a rifle if you're feeling particularly lucky, and judging from the video that we've embedded,...

Toukiden: Kiwami's New Characters Are Here to Help You Slay on PS4 and Vita

Gang, meet the new gang

Toukiden: The Age of Demons had a surprisingly decent selection of allies, and even though they seemed largely generic at first, they started to grow on us as we progressed through the oni-slaying adventure. There'll be several new faces to help you with your duties in Toukiden: Kiwami, though, as the game's newest trailer...

Japanese Sales Charts: Dragon Ball Xenoverse PS4, PS3 Eases Past 9,000 Units

Just Saiyan

These next few weeks are going to be massively important for the PlayStation 4 in Japan. For the first time since launch, Sony has actually amassed a decent software lineup for Eastern gamers, and it'll be hoping to see its hardware sales increase as a result. And improve they already have, but only marginally; according to Media...

Obviously drumming up the excitement for its Japanese launch of One Piece: Pirate Warriors 3, Bandai Namco is flooding its channel with character videos, showing off each and every moveset .

Here's a Reminder That the PlayStation Vita Exists

Remember me?

Despite getting an extended section during PlayStation Experience, the PlayStation Vita's fall from grace has been pretty, well, sudden. We suppose that it was clear from the start that the format would never set the world on fire, but we'd expected a little more effort from the platform holder beyond Killzone: Mercenary and Tearaway...

PSN Experiencing Turbulence Prior to Previously Scheduled Maintenance

Up and down

Another week, another issue on the PlayStation Network. Fortunately, this one isn't widespread. Still, that hasn't stopped some impatient players from setting Twitter ablaze with complaints regarding Sony's shaky online service. According to reports, the manufacturer's various machines are showing "scheduled maintenance" errors –...

Review: Nihilumbra (PlayStation Vita)

Nihilumbra (PlayStation Vita)

Fill the void

It's no secret that storytelling has had a renaissance of sorts in video games, where the tale being told is arguably as important as the actual gameplay – and Nihilumbra is cut from the same cloth. While this PlayStation Vita puzzle platformer may not be as moving as the likes of The Last of Us, though, it can still be thought...

Here be monsters

There's a decent amount of variety on the PlayStation Store this week, as four-versus-one shooter Evolve stomps onto the scene along with brilliant blast-'em-up Super Stardust Ultra, which zooms onto the PlayStation 4 for the first time. Akiba's Trip: Undead and Undressed also fumbles comically onto Sony's newest console today,...

Out of this world

It's a big week on the North American PlayStation Store for this particular author, as it marks the arrival of Super Stardust Ultra on the PlayStation 4. Those of you that have been following this site in the six years since its inception will know that we're obsessed with Housemarque's space blaster, so we can't wait to go planet...

We don't know about you, but it feels like we're still easing our way into 2015. While there have been a fair few big releases between Saints Row: Gat Out of Hell and Dying Light, there hasn't been a whole lot to shout about. That's all set to change as we limp towards the end of the fiscal year, though, with publishers preparing to...

PSN Offline Later This Week for Maintenance 

We're goin' down

Ignore the hyperbole in the headline, because contrary to popular belief, the PlayStation Network rarely goes offline completely when it's undergoing scheduled maintenance. Later this week, from 17:00PM GMT until 20:30PM GMT on Thursday, 12th February, you won't be able to access account management, the PlayStation Store, and...

Dreams of the East

2015 is looking like a pretty good year for games from the East, especially with Japanese developers now turning their attention to the PlayStation 4. Whether you're a fan of manga and anime adaptations or role-playing games, there's quite a bit of excitement to go around, although we do need to point out one thing before we...

Get the crew together

Fitting a storyline as big as One Piece's into a single game can't possibly be easy, but One Piece: Pirate Warriors 3 is going to take on the challenge as best it can, judging from its newest trailer. The title's story mode will span over a good number of the source material's arcs, stretching from the recruitment of...

Lips are movin'

It's been a bit of a strange week here at Push Square Towers. While we've pumped out more articles than BuzzFeed, it doesn't feel like there's much to recap. In other words: the past seven days in the PlayStation Nation have been little more than filler, but we suppose that that's a welcome reminder that 2015 has barely got started...

Wayne to go

There's a brilliant little application on the BBC website which allows you to track just how much professional footballers (of the non-American variety) earn. This author thought that it would be fun to see how much Manchester United and England player Wayne Rooney earns during the time that it takes to publish a weekly edition of WAYP...
