  • Poll Are You Happy with Your PS Plus Extra, Premium Games for February 2024?

    Plus or minus?

    This month's games for PS Plus Extra and PS Plus Premium have been revealed, with 13 titles being added across the two tiers. We suppose the biggest talking point is that subscribers are getting four Tales games, including the very well received Tales of Arise, which released back in 2021. The inclusion of Assassin's Creed Valhalla...

  • Poll Are You Playing Skull and Bones?

    It's finally here

    If you can believe it, Skull and Bones is actually here. The Ubisoft live service project, which had been hit with so many delays over the years, is playable right now on PS5. The question, then, is whether you're eyeing the open waters yourself. At the time of writing, we don't have a Skull and Bones review to pull quotes from...

  • Poll What Review Score Would You Give Helldivers 2?

    Hell yeah?

    Helldivers 2 has been a bit of a surprise hit for Sony and developer Arrowhead Studios. The game's landed with a genuine bang, pulling a huge number of players across PS5 and PC since its launch last week. The general consensus is that — outside of connection issues — it's a damn good time, especially if you can coax a few friends to...

  • Poll What Review Score Would You Give Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League?

    In for the kill

    It's more than fair to say that Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League has been dividing opinions, and so we're very interested in hearing what you lot have to say about it. A far cry from the Batman-based, single-player shenanigans that put developer Rocksteady on the map, this co-op shooter has been a talking point for quite some...

  • Poll What Review Score Would You Give Persona 3 Reload?

    SEES for yourself

    A rather stunning remake of a classic PS2 RPG, Persona 3 Reload graced PS5 and PS4 earlier this month. Almost immediately, it became developer Atlus' fastest selling title ever — thanks to strong reviews and a huge marketing campaign. Of course, it also helps that Persona as a brand is more popular than ever these days — still...

  • Poll What Do You Think of the Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth Demo?

    Keep Kalm

    Released earlier this week, the highly anticipated demo for Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth gives us a glimpse of the game's opening chapter, in which Cloud recalls the time he and Sephiroth were sent to investigate the Nibelheim mako reactor. We happen to think it's a pretty strong start to what should be a great sequel, bit as always, it's your...

  • Poll What Review Score Would You Give Granblue Fantasy: Relink?

    Was it worth the wait?

    It's been about a week since Granblue Fantasy: Relink finally landed on PS5 and PS4. The action RPG released during an especially busy period — just after Tekken 8 and Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth, and just a day before Persona 3 Reload — but the positivity surrounding its arrival suggests that fans of the genre...

  • Poll Which Xbox Franchises Would You Buy on PS5?

    The big question

    There’s strong speculation that some first-party Xbox franchises are being considered for release on the PS5. In some cases, the rumours are incredibly strong, like Hi-Fi Rush – which had a handful of in-game shirts datamined, clearly showing that a PlayStation port is on the way. In other instances,

  • Poll Are You Playing Helldivers 2?

    Dive in

    Helldivers 2 has arrived on PS5 (and PC!) with a bit of a bang. The co-op shooter appears to be quite popular already, rocketing up the Steam player charts and garnering a sizeable audience on streaming websites like Twitch. The question, then, is whether you're joining the Helldiver ranks and taking the fight to those big old bugs. We...

  • Poll How Do You Feel About All of the Xbox Multiplatform Rumours?

    A PlayStation perspective

    While we use the word 'rumours' in the headline of this article, the reality of the situation is that it really does look like Xbox is making significant changes to its business strategy. Speculation is absolutely rampant at the time of writing, with numerous reports all coming to the same conclusion: Microsoft wants to...

  • Poll Will You Be Watching the Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth State of Play?

    Or have you already seen too much?

    Just in case you don't know, there's another State of Play broadcast tonight, featuring Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth. It's probably going to be the game's last big blowout before it releases on the 29th February — which is just over three weeks away! — but will you actually be watching the show? The real reason we...

  • Poll What Review Score Would You Give Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth?

    Infinite/10

    It's been over a week since the release of Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth, and it's safe to say that RGG Studio's latest RPG has been a hit. Its unique brand of madness (and massive marketing campaign) has allowed the game to reach people who wouldn't normally be interested in the series — and so we're very interested in hearing what...

  • Poll What Review Score Would You Give Tekken 8?

    Return of the king?

    Tekken 8 has been out for about a week now on PS5, so you've had plenty of time to play though its insane story mode and get smashed to bits by shockingly powerful players online. And so we simply have to ask: how highly would you rate Bandai Namco's newest brawler? Without wanting to sway your opinion too much, we gave the game...

  • Poll Are You Happy with Your PS Plus Essential Games for February 2024?

    Plus or minus?

    Yep, we're into the second month of 2024 already, and the beginning of a new month can only mean one thing in the PlayStation Nation: new PS Plus Essential games are incoming. So what's on February's menu? Well, at first glance, it's a rather solid trio of PS5 and PS4 titles. For starters, we've got the all-new Foamstars, which is...

  • Poll Are You Playing Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League?

    Justice for all

    Well, it's here! After a couple of delays and a lot of heated discussions online, Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League has arrived on PS5. The co-op enabled action shooter has split opinion ever since its gameplay reveal, and confirmation of livr service elements only added fuel to the ongoing fire. The all-important question,...

  • Poll Are You Playing Persona 3 Reload?

    Lock and Reload

    Almost 18 whole years after the original Persona 3 released on PS2, a complete remake in the form of Persona 3 Reload is now available on PS5 and PS4. It feels like a proper Persona 3 revival has been in demand for generations, and now that it's actually here, we want to know if you're playing it. "A stunning remake of a classic...

  • Poll Are You Playing Granblue Fantasy: Relink?

    Linked at last

    No, you're not dreaming — Granblue Fantasy: Relink is actually here, released, and playable right now on PS5 and PS4. It's crazy to think that the action RPG was announced all the way back in 2016, before it was forced to endure a rocky development cycle and multiple delays. Thankfully, the general consensus seems to be that the...

  • Poll How Would You Rate the Latest State of Play Showcase?

    Did Sony get 2024 off to a good start?

    Sony's first State of Play livestream of 2024 has been and gone, leaving us with a whole host of all-new PS5 and PSVR2 games to consider in the year ahead. Excitement for the show was quite a bit higher than would be typical of a State of Play due to the rumours and speculation spread in the days leading up to...

January2024

  • Poll What Review Score Would You Give The Last of Us Part 2 Remastered?

    Can't be for nothing/10

    We understand this is a bit of a weird poll since some of you will have already given the original The Last of Us: Part 2 a score, but we've got to be thorough with these things so that our Best PS5 Games lists are all correctly updated! The Last of Us Part 2 Remastered is the same game, but it looks slightly better and comes...

  • Poll Are You Playing Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth?

    Scratching the Ichiban

    Promising a potent mix of utter madness and intense drama, Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth is here, and its arrival likely signals the start of a memorable weekend for fans of the franchise. Indeed, the stakes are dangerously high for Ichiban and Kiryu in this climactic adventure across Honolulu, and as always, we want to know...

  • Poll Are You Playing Tekken 8?

    A new battle begins

    It's a huge day for Tekken fans, as the newest instalment in Bandai Namco's long-running series is finally here. Exclusive to current-gen platforms, Tekken 8 has long promised to be a banger — and the critic reviews certainly suggest that it is. But as always, we want to know if you're getting stuck into the latest release. In...

  • Poll What Review Score Would You Give Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown?

    Prince or pauper?

    Now that it's been out on PS5 and PS4 for about a week, we want to know what you think of Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown. The side-scrolling adventure got some really high review scores from critics, despite its obvious deviation from the more well-known Prince of Persia formula (but then it's been ages since the series' previous...

  • Poll Are You Playing The Last of Us Part 2 Remastered?

    No returns

    The Last of Us Part 2 Remastered is out now on PS5, bringing the brutal PS4 adventure to Sony's current-gen console. The remaster features some (fairly minor, in the grand scheme of things) graphical upgrades, alongside a slew of extras, like an action-packed roguelike mode and behind-the-scenes content. Of course, the original game isn't...

  • Poll Are You Playing Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown?

    Lost and found

    It may not be the Prince of Persia revival that some fans wanted, but Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown seems to be kicking 2024's release schedule off with a bit of a bang. The action-platformer's been given high review scores across the board, and we want to know if you're sold on this new-look adventure. "Prince of Persia: The Lost...

  • Poll Are You Happy with Your PS Plus Extra, Premium Games for January 2024?

    Plus or minus?

    Between the two tiers, PS Plus Extra and PS Plus Premium are getting 14 additional games this month. It's another sizable update for the service, but as always, we want to know what you think of the selection. At least from our perspective, Extra continues to bring a lot of variety to the PS Plus table. While not all of January's...

  • Poll Which Persona Game Has the Best Opening?

    Now it's personal

    Atlus revealed the opening for Persona 3 Reload earlier this week, and it's so good that it got us wondering: which Persona game has the best title sequence? In case you don't know, each game in the series typically introduces itself with an animated opening, featuring a unique song and some gorgeous artwork. There's no doubt...

  • Poll Which PS5 Games are You Buying in Early 2024's Ridiculous Release Schedule?

    40 PS5 games up for grabs

    2024 is upon us, and off the back of an amazing array of games in 2023, this year is serving up a lot of new releases over the next few months. Indeed, the period we're categorising as 'early 2024' (from now until the end of April) is packed with PS5 titles, and we want to know how you'll be spending your hard-earned money...

  • Poll Was 2023 One of the Best Ever Years for New Game Releases?

    Games of the year

    All throughout 2023, we saw plenty of people asking whether the year would go down as one of the best ever periods for new game releases. Indeed, it was an objectively stacked 12 months — and we're not even thinking about non-PlayStation platforms when we write that. Just to very quicky recap (in case you've already forgotten!),...

  • Game of the Year #1 - Marvel's Spider-Man 2

    Arachnophilia

    This year has been so stacked with brilliant games of all shapes and sizes, and so our number one Game of the Year slot was never a total certainty. As it so happened, the race for first place was incredibly close, with just one point in it, and the two games vying for victory couldn't be more different. Ultimately, though, the big,...

December2023

  • Game of the Year #2 - Baldur's Gate 3

    A class act

    For the many accolades Larian Studios' roleplaying epic, Baldur's Gate 3, has earned, the fact that it even exists is somehow still its most impressive accomplishment of all. Its predecessor, Baldur's Gate II: Shadows of Amn, was released almost a quarter of a century ago and is still considered one of the all-time genre greats. Not only...

  • Poll Are You Happy with Your PS Plus Essential Games for January 2024?

    Plus or minus?

    Okay we'll admit, we came very close to typing '2023' in that headline. But no, your eyes aren't deceiving you — it's time to pass judgment on a whole new year of monthly PS Plus games! And to get us started, January's lineup is made up of three intriguing PS5 and PS4 titles. The headline act has to be the highly rated A Plague...

  • Game of the Year #4 - Alan Wake 2

    It's a spiral, not a circle

    It's kind of funny having a sequel to a 13-year-old game, that didn't initially launch on PlayStation, make its way into the upper half of our top 10 - but that's what happens when said game is Alan Wake 2. Remedy's long-awaited sequel completely blew us away, earning one of the few 10 out of 10 ratings on the site this...

  • Game of the Year #6 - Street Fighter 6

    Fighting fit

    Well, this worked out perfectly, didn’t it? We’ve reached the sixth position on our Game of the Year list, and we’ve reserved it for, well, Street Fighter 6. Brilliant! But yes, while we should have all learned not to bet against Capcom at this point, there was still a little scepticism surrounding the fighter heading into its...

  • Game of the Year #7 - Lies of P

    Sweet little lies

    Lies of P is one of 2023's most pleasant surprises. It's a twisted take on the classic tale of Pinnochio, incorporating elements made famous by FromSoftware's Dark Souls series. Korean newcomer Neowiz Games knocked it out of the park with its debut, delivering some competent competition and the closest thing to a Bloodborne...

  • Game of the Year #8 - Dead Space

    They're coming outta the walls

    Coming in at number eight is Dead Space. This full PS5 remake kicked off 2023 with its January release, and honestly, we haven't stopped thinking about it since. With The Callisto Protocol launching just a month prior and sharing a lot of the same DNA, EA Motive wiped our memory of Johnny Protocol as it thrust us into...

  • Game of the Year #9 - Star Wars Jedi: Survivor

    Teenage Mutant Ninja Turgle

    Unless they're making the same sort of leap in quality as Assassin's Creed II did, sequels often struggle to drum up the same sort of excitement their predecessors did. A known quantity going into a second game, it's a common criticism Respawn Entertainment managed to avoid in a follow-up that's bigger and better in every...

  • Game of the Year #10 - Cocoon

    Insect inside

    Cocoon is one of those games that's hard to talk about without spoiling things, but it absolutely deserves a spot in our Game of the Year rundown, so we're gonna have to try. Spearheaded by Playdead alumnus Jeppe Carlsen, this excellent puzzle game carries much of that Limbo/Inside energy — reason enough alone you should pay...

  • Poll Are You Playing God of War Ragnarok: Valhalla?

    Free for all

    God of War Ragnarok's free DLC is out now on PS5 and PS4. Adding a whole new component to Kratos' Game of the Year-worthy epic, Valhalla tasks players with battling through an increasingly dangerous gauntlet of opponents in roguelike fashion. For some, 'roguelike' is without a doubt a dirty term, but this expansion promises a personal...

  • Poll What's Your Most Anticipated PS5 Game of 2024?

    Over 50 games to choose from

    There's little doubt that 2023 has been an amazing year for new releases. We've had some absolute corkers over the last 12 months, but now it's time to start looking ahead to what is shaping up to be another huge year for PS5 gaming. As we keep repeating, the first few months of 2024 are madness. There are a ridiculous...

  • Poll What Was the Best PS5 Game Announcement or Reveal at The Game Awards 2023?

    There's a lot to choose from

    Well, going by our previous poll, most people enjoyed The Game Awards 2023 — and that's always a plus when we're asking for your opinions on the event's best PS5 showing! As it turns out, Geoff wasn't lying; this year's show was packed with announcements and reveals. In fact, there was so much stuff that we were still...

  • Poll Was The Game Awards 2023 Worth Watching?

    Give a rating for Keighley's performance

    Another yearly instalment of The Game Awards has been and gone, handing out recognition to some fantastic titles and announcing promising new ones alongside them. You'll find a full list of All The Game Awards 2023 Winners and What Was Announced at The Game Awards 2023 through the two links, so once you've...

  • Poll Are You Playing Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora?

    Big blue

    Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora has landed on PS5, offering up Ubisoft's open world take on the Avatar franchise. It's pretty much the last high profile release of 2023, and because of that, we're sure that a lot of people will be picking it up for the holidays. Are you one of them, though? We don't have an Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora review...

  • Poll This Is Your Last Chance to Vote for Our PS5, PS4 Game of the Year 2023

    Help decide Push Square's GOTY

    Well everyone, we're coming to the end of yet another year (if you can believe it!). 2023 is almost over, and that can only mean one thing: it's time to decide on the Push Square Game of the Year. Behind the scenes here on the site, we're busy collecting staff member votes and writing our own personal GOTY articles —...

  • Poll What Review Score Would You Give Persona 5 Tactica?

    Strategic scoring

    The latest Persona 5 spin-off, Persona 5 Tactica, has been out on PS5 and PS4 for a week now, and you know what that means! That's right, we want to know what you think of the Phantom Thieves' new adventure, as the chibi-fied protagonists partake in some strategic battles. Although we're definitely growing a bit tired of Joker and...

  • News Baldur's Gate 3 Is a Lock for Game of the Year, According to Most PlayStation Fans

    The one to beat at The Game Awards

    Baldur's Gate 3 is most likely to be crowned Game of the Year at The Game Awards 2023. That's according to everyone who voted in our recent poll, which asked one simple question: What do you think will win Game of the Year at The Game Awards 2023? Just under 5,000 votes were cast, and Larian's immensely popular...

  • Talking Point Like Japanese Games? Early 2024 Is Going to Destroy You

    Your wallet's already dead

    We think 2024 is already shaping up to be another ridiculous year for gaming, but more specifically, early 2024 now looks utterly insane if you happen to enjoy Japanese games in particular. Now obviously, 'Japanese games' is an incredibly broad term, but Japanese publishers really do seem hellbent on releasing all of their...

  • Poll Are You Happy with Your PS Plus Extra, Premium Games for November 2023?

    Plus or minus?

    14 more games are coming to PS Plus Extra and PS Plus Premium next week, and we must admit, the selection seems rather scattershot. Generally speaking, previous Extra updates have included clear patterns. For example, there have been months where we've been given all the Yakuza games, or all the Star Ocean games, or all the...

  • Poll Are You Playing Persona 5 Tactica?

    Strategically speaking

    The Phantom Thieves are back yet again, only this time, they're testing their strategic skills in tactical RPG Persona 5 Tactica. Another spin-off based on the themes and characters of Atlus' seemingly eternal masterpiece, we want to know if you're sticking with Joker and the gang through their latest adventure. Honestly, we...

  • Poll What Will Win Game of the Year at The Game Awards 2023?

    There can only be one

    Now that we know all of the nominees for The Game Awards 2023 — which takes place in just a few weeks at the time or writing — we can sit back and speculate over the event's big winners. As is the case every year, the Game of the Year award is the most talked about category — but which title do you think will walk away...

  • Poll Did You Buy a PS Portal?

    Jump in

    Sony's dedicated remote play device, the PlayStation Portal — or PS Portal for short — is out now. The handheld system is designed to be a second screen for your PS5, which operates via an internet connection. It's fair to say that the Portal won't appeal to everyone, but for those who want to continue playing their PS5 games when the...

  • Poll What Review Score Would You Give Like a Dragon Gaiden?

    The glorious return of Kazuma Kiryu

    Like a Dragon Gaiden: The Man Who Erased His Name has been out for a week now on PS5 and PS4. The intriguing return of Kazuma Kiryu seems to have gone down especially well with fans of SEGA's series, and so we're interested in knowing what you think of this shorter, arguably more focused Like a Dragon title. We...

  • Feature Celebrating 10 Years of PS4 with Our Favourite Games

    The best of the best

    The PS4 is officially ten years old. We've had a whole decade of Sony's last-gen console, and if you can believe it, games are still being released on the bloody thing. But we're not here to complain — we want to take this opportunity to celebrate a fantastic system. There's no doubt about it, the PS4 has an outstanding...

  • Poll Are You Buying a PS5 'Slim'?

    Slimmer down

    With the new PS5 model now available for purchase in the US — with other regions likely to follow in the very near future — we think it's time to ask whether you plan on picking up the PS5 'Slim'. For those who already own a PS5, this is probably an unnecessary expense. Aside from being a bit smaller and having slightly expanded...

  • Poll What Review Score Would You Give Star Ocean The Second Story R?

    Star crossed

    Considered by many to be one of, if not the best game in the series, PS1 and PSP classic Star Ocean The Second Story was revived last week in a very well received fashion. Star Ocean The Second Story R is a remake of the beloved RPG, bringing modern sensibilities to an old school adventure. We awarded it a 'great' 8/10 in our rather...

  • Poll Is God of War Ragnarok Still One of Sony's Best Games, One Year Later?

    Oh boy oh boy

    Today marks the first anniversary of God of War Ragnarok. The PlayStation exclusive launched on the 9th November 2022, and was immediately met with glowing praise from many a player. Weeks before, it had received universally positive reviews from critics, with some calling it one of Sony's greatest ever first-party titles. At the...

  • Poll Are You Playing Like a Dragon Gaiden: The Man Who Erased His Name?

    Erase this

    Out now on PS5 and PS4, Like a Dragon Gaiden: The Man Who Erased His Name is yet another chapter in the (ongoing) saga of Kazuma Kiryu. Taking place before, during, and after the events of Yakuza: Like a Dragon, it's all about what uncle Kaz was up to as Ichiban and his party did battle with corrupt politicians. We really enjoyed this...

  • Poll Do You Think GTA 6 Will Release on PS4?

    Please god no

    Well, it's finally happening. The rumours can finally end, the rabid fans can finally know peace, and we can all just sit down and patiently await the Grand Theft Auto 6 reveal trailer, which has been confirmed to drop at some point in December. But now that Rockstar's massively anticipated project is about to step out from the...

  • Poll What Review Score Would You Give Lies of P?

    No lying, please

    It feels like Lies of P has managed to stand out in an increasingly bloated subgenre. Souls-likes are everywhere these days, and developers know that they need to craft something pretty special if their project is to compare favourably to FromSoftware's elite action RPGs. South Korea's Round8 Studio should pat itself on the back,...

  • Poll What Review Score Would You Give Mortal Kombat 1?

    Prepare for kombat

    Mortal Kombat 1 has been out for roughly a week now, and so we're wondering what you lot think of NetherRealm's latest effort.

  • Poll Are You Playing Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty?

    A trip to Dogtown

    Cyberpunk 2077's first (and last) expansion is out now on PS5. Phantom Liberty adds a whole new storyline and district to CD Projekt Red's open world RPG, and the initial reception has been incredibly positive. Of course, it helps that the base game has been significantly improved with Update 2.0 — which dropped just five days...
