Telltale Puts Xbox Button Prompts in a PS4 Game

Great job, Jeremy

Telltale's notorious quality assurance department is at it again, forgetting to change some of the button prompts in Tales from the Borderlands: Episode 4.

Weirdness: The Ouye Is the Ultimate PS4 Rip Off

The Ouye Is the Ultimate PS4 Rip Off

Shameless

Introducing the Ouye, a Chinese console packed with so much plagiarism that it's bordering on parody. The device – which is currently up for crowd funding – boasts the chassis of the PlayStation 4, but the controller of the Xbox One.

People Are Already Covering Horizon: Zero Dawn's Soundtrack

We know we weren't the first ones here

Dutch musician Joris de Man may have been missing from Killzone: Shadow Fall, but he's proven that he's still the man by composing Horizon: Zero Dawn's soaring soundtrack.

The Horrific Truth Behind Fallout 3's DLC Train

Masterful game development

Believe it or not, developers cut corners all the time when it comes to making games - especially if it's a particularly big project.

There's a PSone on the Way to Pluto

Do not underestimate the power of PlayStation

If you thought that your yellowing PSone was good for late-night sessions of Crash Bandicoot only, then you may want to have a rethink. NASA engineers repurposed the system's MIPS R3000 CPU back in 2006, using it to control a grand piano-sized space probe which is on its way to Pluto. According to The...

A night to remember

We're not going to lie - we still get goosebumps when we watch that Final Fantasy VII Remake trailer.

Sigh

While we were all getting giddy over The Last Guardian, one Brazilian man was attempting a robbery – with a DualShock 2.

This Copy of Bloodborne Is Getting Panned

Deck the store manager

Bloodborne's a terrifying game at the best of times – especially when the Blu-ray is replaced for a Christmas Pan Pipes compilation CD. We're squinting at the legitimacy of this NeoGAF post, but it seems authentic enough to warrant coverage here on Push Square. According to user Messofanego, he picked up a shrink-wrapped...

Some Idiot Traded in Their Ultra Rare 20th Anniversary PS4 at CEX

Just another unloved appliance

Sometimes you need a quick sale, and stores like CEX are always available to purchase your unwanted goods. This is fine if we're talking about your crusty old PlayStation 2 and scratched copy of Pro Evolution Soccer 3, but if you're offloading your 20th Anniversary PlayStation 4 at the high street store – well, you...

Final Fantasy Creator Hironobu Sakaguchi Aspires to Be a Hip Hop Star

Mega64 do it again
