The PlayStation 3 is a powerful piece of hardware
But it also has restrictions. Restrictions that have caused the delay of Final Fantasy XIV. Speaking to VG247 at GamesCom, producer Hiromichi Tanaka revealed that memory is the reason for the game's delay on consoles: "The main reas
The 3rd Birthday's producer, Yoshinori Kitase, has told VG247 that Square Enix are aiming for a Winter release for the PSP Parasite Eve spin-off in Japan, with Europe to follow next year
"The Japanese versions going to come out in winter this year, Kitase told VG247 at GamesCom. And weve already started localising the game for overseas versions. So were hoping to release it..
I've got absolutely nothing to moan about
This has been an excellent week for the PlayStation brand; so good, in fact, that even reports of a jailbreak weren't able to subdue the mood. I predicted before GamesCom that it would be a low-key show - but Sony's found their stomping ground. Last year Sony dominated the European event with the headline...
Sony's had a fantastic GamesCom for the second year running, packing the show with banner announcements once more
Thankfully, the GamesCom awards have paid testament to the quality of Sony's showing — awarding the platform holder with the Best Hardware, Best Console Game and Game Of The Show acknowledgements. PlayStation Move beat out Microsoft's Kinect in the first blow of the motion control..
What's better than Ratchet & Clank or Sly & Bentley or Jak & Daxter? The answer is all of them put together, which is exactly what Heroes On The Move - the upcoming PlayStation Move title from Sony and Nihilistic - is all about
Announced at E3 as a 2011 PlayStation Move title, Sony's been particularly tight-lipped about the mascot-infested Heroes On The Move. Until now that is. The..
Viewtiful Joe was announced as part of the Marvel vs
Capcom 3</a> roster during GamesCom this week. As part of the announcement, Capcom's released this trailer showing gameplay footage of the pint-sized fighter. Looks like he can handle himself against the big-boys doesn't it? This game keeps looking prettier and prettier. Problem is, we just know we're not going to be good enough to enjoy..
Capcom's Yoshinori Ono and Namco's Katsuhiro Harada are at GamesCom to talk about their upcoming colloboration, Street Fighter X Tekken
While the focus of the presentation was to show European fans the same demo that was at Comic-Con, Harada also revealed some prototypes for the other cross-over game in development, Tekken X Street Fighter. Harada stressed that the 3D model of Ryu was far from..
Before we did this PushSquare lark, we used to lock ourselves in dark rooms with Cubase and Reason trying to create the perfect pop-song
After numerous failed attempts, we decided we weren't cut out for a pop career, so we started writing about video games instead. LittleBigPlanet 2 may just end up merging our two hobbies, however. During GamesCom, Media Molecule's Alex Evans has revealed the..
This debut trailer for Double Fine's downloadable Costume Quest might do little to detail the actual gameplay, but it's certainly packed with plenty of trademark whimsy
Consider our attention piqued. Hopefully there's a suitably fitting Danny Elfman soundtrack to hand.
Known for his Hollywood tough-guy roles, there's no better trainer fit for the brutal The Fight: Lights Out than Danny Trejo
Whether Sony's signed him up purely for this trailer or the full game, we're unsure. We hope Machete himself makes an appearance in the full game though. We were impressed when we played the game a little earlier in the year, and by all accounts the game's come a long way. It..
We all know about Gran Turismo's A-Spec career path
It's the driving simulator portion of the game, the section where you pick a car and race it. But what of Gran Turismo 5's new B-Spec mode? It's basically a "racing simulation RPG". In B-Spec you are not the driver, but are the voice in the driver's ear. You watch races from the side-lines and tell the driver how to react. Each driver..
We already established that with the GamesCom trailer. And apparently his new model is already back and running in the game. This footage out of GamesCom is the same section of inFamous 2 we've seen before (note: it looks incredible), but it now features the old Cole character model. It's well worth watching again. Are you guys happy now? Can we get on with talking about th
Sorcery was one of the surprise announcements at E3 that seemed to completely justify the PlayStation Move's existence
40-or-so game announcements later, there's plenty more to get excited about regarding the PlayStation Move — but Sorcery still looks like one of the stand-out titles in the motion controllers catalogue. We hope there's plenty of puzzles designed around the different magic spells..
You know how most games these days are brown and grey? Enslaved, the new action title from Ninja Theory, is totally not
It has a thing we call colours in it. Makes a world of difference. Joystiq's got a bunch of screens from GamesCom.
Warner Bros and NetherRealm has confirmed two new characters for the Mortal Kombat roster today: Cyrax and Kitana
Both will be playable in the new game set to launch next year. Don't forget, the game will feature full stereoscopic 3D support on the PlayStation 3.
No matter how fresh, bright and exciting Bioshock's worlds are supposed to look; they're usually dark, sinisted and horrible
We assume Bioshock: Infinite's sky-city, Columbia, will be no different. See this guy holding a gun? Yeah, he's probably not a happy man.
Suda51's (of No More Heroes fame) has just announced a new PlayStation Network title called Sine Mora
The game's being developed by Grasshopper Manufacture in conjunction with Digital Reality. Apparently it's a horizontal shoot 'em up. The game won't be the first venture between Grasshopper and Digital Reality; apparently they have "a range of...
Gamersyde's captured some pretty stunning footage of Gran Turismo 5's new go-kart modes from GamesCom
It looks like a ton of fun, a super-serious Mario Kart if you will. We can't wait to try it our for ourselves. Apparently there are more Gran Turismo announcements to follow tomorrow; we're not sure how Polyphony can top the excitement from this morning. We've embedded some other more general GT5..
Capcom's clarified today that the PlayStation Move patch for Resident Evil 5: Gold Edition (and only the Gold Edition) will be released on September 19th (which incidentally is day and date with the Move's launch in America)
For regions that didn't get Resident Evil 5: Gold Edition, Capcom's releasing Resident Evil 5: Move Edition. Either way, rest assured you'll get the update.
Video games are, for us, all about being something you're not
This DC Universe Online trailer really hammers home that point. In the MMORPG you'll create a character and fight alongside (or against) the superheroes of the DC Universe in a massive online world. Conceptually it sounds fantastic. It hits PC and PlayStation 3 in November.
Konami's dated the latest entry in the Pro Evolution Soccer franchise, scheduling PES 2011 for October 8th here in the UK
This year's being touted as the biggest yet for the PES franchise, as the game's been overtaken by FIFA in recent years. There are new pass placement mechanics which allow you to weight the ball, aswell as new AI routines, animations and online integration. We have been..
One of our favourite announcements from yesterday was the that Virtua Tennis 4 will be coming to the PlayStation 3 with full PlayStation Move integration
Despite being 3D, this video from GameTrailers gives a good idea of how the game will play out. It adopts a new camera system that switches into a first-person view-point when the ball comes close to the player. That allows you to concentrate..
After the initial excitement of Mass Effect 2 for the PlayStation 3 died down yesterday, many people were curious how they would bridge the story elements of the first game for those who didn't play it
The original game was funded and published by Microsoft, so there was no way they'd let up exclusivity rights for the title. It's also a vastly inferior game when compared with the improvements made..
What have Polyphony Digital been up to for the past five or so years? Quite a lot actually
Aswell as building the prettiest racing game ever made, Gran Turismo 5, they've also been packing the title with features. Producer Kazunori Yamauchi's blown the lid of some of the goods at a GamesCom conference today. The biggest addition is the Course Maker, which will bring the number of tracks available..
One of the most exciting things about the PlayStation Move is the ease with which it can be implemented into games
It's for this reason that we've seen the Move games list grow exponentially. There's very little risk in offering players an alternative motion control scheme. And it provides choice — some people like motion controls, other people don't. Some people like both and might like to..
Capcom's confirmed two new characters set to join the Marvel vs
Capcom 3</a> roster at GamesCom today. Both Viewtiful Joe from the 2003 GameCube classic and Marvel antagonist Dormammu (anyone?) are the latest entries into the roster. We're stoked about Viewtiful Joe, but honestly, we don't know who the other guy is. Kotaku's got a bunch of screens.
For UK PS3 owners, a new icon will be popping up under the TV section of the XMB
Sony's confirmed at GamesCom tonight that the ITV Player catch-up service will be joining the BBC iPlayer on the PlayStation 3. Six other TV catch-up services across Europe will be added to their specific regions, including: Yahoo 7 (Australia), Animax and NOS YLE...
Sony's GamesCom 2010 press conference is over and done with, and it brought with it some pretty big news for PlayStation 3 owners
The announcements of two new Insomniac Games projects - Resistance 3 and Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One - were undoubtedly the highlights, but the PushSquare office is getting into a bit of a tiswas over the announcement of a Move controlled Virtua Tennis game too..
If there's one genre we love, it's the tennis game genre
Seriously, we just can't get enough of games involving racquets and balls. We know it sounds absurd (you probably like your shooting and killing), but ever since we first tried Virtua Tennis in an arcade we've been in love with the genre. So it's with massive announcement we can confirm that Virtua Tennis 4 is coming to the PS3 with..
As those who've dabbled in plenty of music production, LittleBigPlanet 2's music editor has almost as excited as the rest of the actual game
With the new tools at hand, you'll be able to craft the score for your own levels. You'll also be able to direct complete cut-scenes. It's all a bit ridiculous, in an absolutely brilliant way. As best it can, this GamesCom trailer sums up most of things..
Sony's confirmed that Gran Turismo 5 will hit Europe on November 3rd
That's just a day after the US release which is currently scheduled for November 2nd. Those in the UK will probably have to wait until the 5th due to the way distribution is handled here. Still, it's nice to have firm release dates isn't it?
Sony's announced a new 320GB SKU of the PlayStation 3 will be available by the holiday season in Europe
The package will not only include a PS3 stacked up with hard-drive space, but it'll also pack in the PlayStation Move Starter Kit. The Move starter kit includes a PlayStation Eye, PlayStation Move controller and demo disc. The full 320GB package will cost 349, while an alternative 160GB package..
There's a familiar face vying for your attention in this inFamous 2 trailer
Who is it? It's none other than Cole McGrath. You know, the one you remember. The one you fell in love with. The one from the original inFamous.
Sony's released the first trailer of Killzone 3's multiplayer component at GamesCom this evening
The trailer reveals plenty of details — a new, more robust XP system is apparent. This will hopefully complimented by more ranks and upgrades. The multiplayer also reveals the use of vehicles, such as the Exoskeletons and Jet Packs. It also just happens to look ridiculously pretty. We're a little..
Good grief, after tricking the entire Internet into believing they weren't going to show it, Insomniac's just confirmed Resistance 3's existence with a stunning trailer
Update @ 21:00 — we've uploaded the announcement trailer here.
Didn't see that coming.
Just prior to spilling the beans on Resistance 3, Insomniac announced they have a new four-player co-op Ratchet & Clank title in development. The new game, Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One, will feature drop-in/drop-out co-op, where you'll play as Ratchet, Clank, Qwark and even Nefarious. The game's being developed by...
EA Sports has finally dished the dirt on the upcoming FIFA 11 at their GamesCom press conference
The biggest new headline announcement is the ability to play as the goalkeeper in new 11v11 online team play. Elsewhere, EA were keen to hammer home the points of refinement, personality and improved passing. FIFA 11 looks to be all about improving on the quirks of the previous games, rather than..

We've included the trailer after the jump.
If you were planning on buying a PlayStation 3 today, first of all: good thinking
May we just recommend you wait 24 hours or so, though. We know you're waiting to jump into Uncharted 2: Among Thieves and all the other fantastic PS3 titles, but have some patience. Just for a short while. Last night, US retailer GameStop put a new "just announced" 160GB PlayStation 3 on their website. Thing..
This trailer's a bit rock and roll for our tastes, but whatever
It's the first look at the downloadable Red Faction game THQ announced yesterday, Battlegrounds. Consider it an isometric take on Twisted Metal. It looks fun, but we're a little concerned that the perspective might make the controls fiddly. We're curious to see more. Next time though,...
There's a great stonking rumour over on NeoGAF tonight
According to user "De-Mon", Sony and EA are on the verge of announcing some kind of Mass Effect port entitled Mass Effect: Genesis. "De-Mon" anticipates that the title will be announced during either of the companies' GamesCom conferences tomorrow, but suggests a magazine reveal over the next three weeks is also possible..

He told an audience in Cologne that he believes the acceptance of Heavy Rain shows that the market is ready for new paradigms". I think the industry is ready for new ideas, he said . "Games are today based on violent actions, they are defined by what you see and..
This time last year we were about to experience one of the most pivotal moments in the PlayStation 3's history; the announcement of the PlayStation 3 Slim and the entire platform's re-branding completely rejuvenated Sony's platform and put it back into serious contention with the XBOX 360
The announcement came at GamesCom, a German-based video games...

The super-hero MMO is due in November on both the PlayStation 3 and PC, and a beta is due soon. Those heading to the big exposition in Cologne will be able to get their hands on the game, though we're not sure how much benefit a five minute session with the game will be.
