  • News Wanted Dead's PS5, PS4 Box Has a Bit of Everything on It

    Cats! Tattoos! Swords!

    If you’re a fan of scrappy old character action games, the kind of weird releases you’d find in bargain bins at hardware stores for the PS2, then you’ll want to add Wanted Dead to your wishlist. In some ways, this game is channelling the spirit of busted Wii U exclusive Devil’s Third, as it mixes close-quarters melee...

  • News PES 2021 May Be a Roster Update, But There Sure Are Some Stars on Its Cover


    We can’t help but feel that eFootball PES 2021: Season Update has wasted what it is a star-studded cover, because there sure are some big names on the front of this year’s release. Barcelona’s Lionel Messi, who’s been a series mainstay for six years, is joined by Juventus’ Cristiano Ronaldo – so you’ve basically got the two GOATs...

  • News A Bunch More PS5 Box Art Has Emerged

    What do you think?

  • Random This Retailer Had Fun with Its Custom Ghost of Tsushima Box Art

    Only in Slovakia, though

    Occasionally, retailers will go the extra mile to tempt you to pre-order in their store. It could be the promise of a free sticker or a midnight launch.

  • Quiz Can You Name the PS4 Game from Just the Box Art?

    What's in a name

    There are a lot of games on PlayStation 4, but how closely do you pay attention to the cover art? Take the game's title away, and many PS4 games have pretty similar artwork adorning the box. We've gathered 10 PS4 games, blocked the names, and popped them in a quiz to see how well you know your box art. Can you correctly identify...

  • News Ghost of Tsushima Has a Gorgeous Reversible Cover

    Stylish samurai

    Ghost of Tsushima is one of the most stylish games to grace the PlayStation 4, so it’s only fitting that its physical edition should ship with an equally fancy reversible cover.

  • News This Is What the PS5 Could Look Like in Stores

    An artist's impression

    It’s interesting to consider how the PlayStation 5 will look in stores, because Sony hasn’t revealed a whole lot about the upcoming console’s branding – beyond its record-breaking logo, of course. This mock-up by Italian graphic artist Giuseppe Spinelli, as published by

  • News Predator: Hunting Grounds Plays It Safe in PS4 Box Art

    But look closely

    You’ll be able to play Predator: Hunting Grounds for free next month as part of your PlayStation Plus subscription, but while you wait, why not have a gander at its box art? Interestingly, publisher Sony’s opted to focus on the release’s squad of soldiers rather than the titular antagonist, although the eagle eyed among you...

  • Random Eco-Friendly PS5 Cases Are Cute and Could Save the Planet

    Cardboard cut-out

    SEGA recently announced that it’s planning to go green with its future PC releases, shipping its games in recyclable cardboard cases. There’s much talk about the PlayStation 5’s approach to box art at the moment, but what if it took a similarly eco-friendly approach? Graphic designer Dan Tiller has come up with a concept on...

  • News PS5 Fans Are Having Fun Imagining the Console's Box Art

    Case study

    There’s a lot of chatter about what the PlayStation 5’s cases will look like. We’ve already done our own set of mock-ups, inspired by the PlayStation 4’s box art. Our theory is that Sony will want something that matches current retail displays but sets it next-gen system apart. Others believe the Japanese giant may opt for...

  • Poll What PS5 Box Design Should Sony Adopt?

    Make a case

    Here’s food for thought: what design will the PlayStation 5’s boxes adopt? We already know that the device will include a Blu-ray player, so it’s unlikely you should expect a different shape or size of case to the PlayStation 4 – it’s not like it will have to accommodate Nintendo Switch-sized cartridges all of a sudden, for...

  • News Yakuza: Like a Dragon's Japanese Box Art Is a Beauty

    The gang's all here

    SEGA has revealed the Japanese box art for Yakuza 7, or Yakuza: Like a Dragon, as it'll be titled here in the West. In typical series fashion, the cover features a bunch of prominent characters all looking suitably serious. The vibrant reds really set this one off, though. It's yet another reminder that Japan gets some...

  • News The Last of Us 2 PS4 Box Art Warns Us Not to Get on Ellie's Bad Side

    "You can't stop this"

    If there's one thing that's clear about The Last of Us: Part II, it's that Ellie is not a happy bunny. The recent trailer seems to point towards a pretty obvious motivation for revenge, so we don't blame her. It's no wonder, then, that Sony has made Ellie's snarling face the focal point of the PlayStation 4 exclusive's cover...

  • News Borderlands 3's Unused Box Art Puts Its Foot in Its Mouth

    One foot in the grave

    Borderlands 3’s box art is brilliant, but what if it followed the format of previous instalments? You may recall that the first game in the series showed a bandit with a finger pistol pointing at his head; the second entry than expanded on this idea with two finger pistols. Well, developer Gearbox did try to keep the theme...

    Streets of Philadelphia

    The seemingly never-ending off-season saga involving right fielder Bryce Harper has concluded, and that means MLB The Show 19 has a cover.

  • News Mortal Kombat 11's Cover Looks Like a Mortal Kombat Cover

    Will Ronda Rousey voice Sonya?

    This is Mortal Kombat 11’s box art – it looks like Mortal Kombat box art. You expected more from this article? Well, what do you want us to say? It’s got Scorpion on it. It’s yellow. It says Mortal Kombat 11 on it. It’s got the guy from The 1975’s tattoo in the background, which is a bit weird, but maybe Ed...

  • News Days Gone PS4 Box Art Depicts a Desperate, Deadly World

    The world will come for you

    In the age of ‘Angry White Man Walking Away from the Camera Clutching a Pistol’, we kinda like this Days Gone cover, which is a little bit different. It’s based on the key art that developer Sony Bend released earlier in the year, and shows elaborately named protagonist Deacon St. John propped up by his motorcycle,...

  • News There'll Be a Logo on PS4 Pro Enhanced Game Cases

    Oh great

    It's usually around this stage in the generation that box art gets completely murdered by superfluous logos, and between PlayStation VR and the new PlayStation 4 Pro, the Japanese giant is planning to make a right old mess. Games Radar reports that titles enhanced by Sony's new hardware – which should, we must stress, end up being all of...

  • News WWE 2K17's Cover Star Has a Sword on His Chest


    Brock Lesnar is WWE 2K17's cover star. We'll refrain from making disparaging remarks because he could probably kill us with his little finger, but we have got to commentate on the sword that's tattooed on his torso, resting between his rock-like pectorals like Excalibur in Arthurian legend. Judging by the box art, he also appears to be...

  • News Make Sure That Anthony Martial Is FIFA 17's Cover Star

    He came from France

    As is the case almost every year, you can vote for the face of FIFA 17 right now. Fortunately, Liverpool's bargain bin Steven Gerrard, Jordan Henderson, is not in the running this year – with Real Madrid's James Rodriguez, Borussia Dortmund's Marco Reus, Chelsea's Eden Hazard, and Manchester United's Anthony Martial in the...

  • News PlayStation VR's About to Make Your PS4 Box Art Messy Again

    Oh joy

    Towards the tail of the generation, PlayStation 3 box art got really bad. You'd have the PS3 logo, the PlayStation Network logo, the 'Only on PlayStation' logo, the PlayStation Move logo, and more. Just take a look at the state of this Need for Speed Most Wanted cover if you want a particularly egregious example. With the PlayStation 4, the...

  • E3 2016 Sadly, The Last Guardian's PS4 Box Art Sucks

    Bird turd

    It's unquestionably going to be a masterpiece, but much like the US version of ICO, there's a big question mark hanging over The Last Guardian's box art. We actually rather like the image that's been selected – it looks especially tasty on the title's steelbook – but the bog standard release has been buggered up by the additi

  • News PS4 Exclusive Horizon: Zero Dawn's Box Art Is Predictably Beautiful

    Brave new world

    Horizon: Zero Dawn's new trailer may be a bit on the cheesy side, but there's no denying that the game's a visual tour-de-force. Part of that, of course, stems from Guerrilla Games' technical prowess – but the art direction is also a very obvious highlight as well. It's no surprise to see the title score some stunning box art,...

  • News Gosh Darn, The Witcher 3: Blood and Wine's PS4 Box Art Is Pure Hype

    Here we bloody go

    Phwoar, the hype meter's off the charts here at Push Square thanks to a relatively blurry image obtained by NeoGAF - isn't that always the way? The image - as you may have guessed - is the box art for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt's second and final expansion, Blood and Wine. It features main character Geralt looking rather regal, while...

  • News No Man's Sky's PS4 Box Art Is So Beautiful You'll Want the Blu-ray

    One for the shelf

    It always seemed certain that No Man's Sky would receive a retail release, but Sony confirmed as much this week, stating that the ambitious outing will be available on Blu-ray in Europe and North America. However, if we're going to point out bad box art – DOOM's atrocious artwork immediately springs to mind – then we should...

  • News The Internet Reckons DOOM's PS4 Box Art Is Bad

    And, for once, the Internet is right

    In concept, DOOM couldn't possibly appeal less to this author's tastes. For starters, it's more heavy metal than the doodles on a teenage misfit's pencil case, but it's also one of those games where the shooting's only ever going to be the draw – we're not expecting anything in the way of story at all. Despite...

  • News Here's the Box Art for That Quantic Dream PS4 Collection


    Sony's preparing a boxed bundle of Quantic Dream games in March, meaning that you'll be able to get your David Cage fix in full on the PlayStation 4.

  • News Street Fighter V Scores Console Exclusive Box Branding

    It is known

    Console makers love to make it known when a game is exclusive to their system, but the 'Only on PlayStation' branding that Sony usually employs doesn't suit every single piece of software. Street Fighter V is an example of a release that will never deploy on the Xbox One, but it is coming to the PC, so it's technically available...

  • News Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection Gets a Crap New Cover

    Drake's misfortune

    You didn't think that the gorgeous golden Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection cover was going to last, did you? Perhaps realising that the original box art didn't quite capture the "SUCH VALUE! MUCH QUALITY!" nature of the compilation, SCEE has re-packaged the title in Europe with a garbage front flaunting the fact that you get...

  • News Dragon Quest Builders' Box Art Is a Bit of a Bust

    Cheap and cheerful

    Dragon Quest Builders is going to sell a frightening number of copies in Japan when it launches early next year on every viable PlayStation platform, but its box art is a bit rubbish. Gematsu spotted the artwork on a Japanese product page, which sports a mixture of awesome main character sketches and a ClipArt-esque villain. It...

  • Feature The 10 Best Worst PSone Covers

    The bad, the ugly, and the beautifully bad

    Box art today is not usually all that interesting. You go to the shop to pick up your copy of Call of Battlefield: War with Guns and the cover art is usually a grizzled white guy walking away from the camera, surrounded with brown and more brown – well, unless you're Battlefield, which uses nothing but...

  • TGS 2015 Gravity Rush's PS4 Box Art Is Just Brilliant

    Such a rush

    Gravity Rush – also known as Gravity Daze in Japan – is one of the most underappreciated properties on PlayStation, but Sony's giving protagonist Kat another bite of the apple with a PlayStation 4 version of the Vita original. The title – which is due out later this year in Japan and next February in the West – is being developed...

  • E3 2015 Harmonix Shows Off Rock Band 4's Box Art, Says to Stay Tuned to E3

    We're running out of time, folks. In mere hours Push Square's offices will have been thrown into pure madness.

Seriously, though, E3 is keeping us pretty busy right now. We're...

  • News Uncharted 4: A Thief's End Unleashes the Angst in PS4 Box Art

    A sure-fire plan

    You may not be able to play Uncharted 4: A Thief's End until next year, but you can look at its box art. IGN spotted the cover on an Amazon product listing, and it looks pretty legit to us. Of course, the downside is that we've seen the image before – but who could ever tire of protagonist Nathan Drake's immaculately

  • News Dragon Quest Heroes' PS4 Box Art Slimes Your Screens

    A boy and his blob

    Square Enix appears to have accidentally outed the box art for – inhale – Dragon Quest Heroes: The World Tree's Woe and the Blight Below. Eagle-eyed gamers picked up on the pack shot on the publisher's official store, which has now been pulled. There was also mention of the title's 13th October release

  • News Call of Duty: Black Ops III's Box Art Has Pretty Bad Posture

    Gun to go

    Call of Duty: Black Ops III's pack shot will pay homage to its predecessors – despite the fact that its seemingly ditching the Cold War for, er, advanced warfare. The cover – which has leaked onto Reddit ahead of the release's big weekend reveal – shows a suited soldier equipped with all kinds of technical wizardry sitting slumped in...

  • News Uncharted 4: A Thief's End's Potential PS4 Pack Art Sure Looks Moody

    Are you depressed yet?

    Naughty Dog's promised that Uncharted 4: A Thief's End will be your typical Hollywood romp, but the title's definitely showing its darker side in this potential PlayStation 4 box art. The eagle eyed folks over at DualShockers spotted a file in SCEA's press bank named 'Pack Art Final', which shows protagonist Nathan Drake...

  • Weirdness What if Publishers Were Forced to Use ClipArt for Game Covers?

    It'd truly be a wonderful world

    If you’re anything like this editor, you’ll have fond memories of ClipArt. Decorating school reports with dodgy pictures was a real highlight of this writer’s formative years, and we suspect that it was the same for many of you. Still, now that we’re older and wiser, the Microsoft Office accessory has kind of...
