  • News Celebrate PlayStation Vita's Birthday with Free Gifts in North America

    Tons of deals, too

    Technically, the PlayStation Vita reached toddler status over the weekend – but seeing as the folks at Sony have only just returned to the office, we'll forgive them this belated birthday gift. In order to celebrate the handheld's third anniversary in North America, the platform holder has prepared a bevy of free gifts and...

    Critical hit to the wallet

    It seems like we can't go a single week without there being some sort of PlayStation Store sale going on. And while we're not necessarily complaining, we still fear for all those poor, empty wallets out there. The latest wave of discounts centre on some of the biggest games of last year. Dubbed the 'Critics' Choice...

Sony has deployed a pretty darn impressive Flash Sale on the North American PlayStation Store this weekend, which is packing some seriously big names.

    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.

    Plus one

    The weekly North American PlayStation Store update is an institution here at Push Square Towers, as we pop on our favourite Britney Spears record, and set to work formatting the most tedious article in existence. Fortunately, there's some top-notch stuff to look forward to this time, including Apotheon, Game of Thrones: Episode 2, and all...

  • Store Update 27th January 2015 (North America)

    Manny, oh man

    This week's North American PlayStation Store update is all about the addition of two new titles: Dying Light and Grim Fandango Remastered. The heavy hitters have some company in Life Is Strange (out on Friday) and the verbose Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth2: Sisters Generation – but we suspect that it's the aforementioned that will...

    Citizens of Spencer Mansion

    If the past couple of weeks have been a little light on the PlayStation Store, then today's North American update is a concrete block in comparison. In addition to smaller gems like Splice and Citizens of Earth, it's also packing heavy hitters like Resident Evil and Saints Row: Gat Out of Hell. Let's-a-go! PS4 Games:...

    Sweet 'n' tasty

    We're now well into January, but the PlayStation Store is yet to wake from its post-Christmas slumber. That's ok, though, because this week is all about quality over quantity – and with Joe Danger 2: The Movie, Fat Princess: Piece of Cake, and, er, Brandish: The Dark Revenant in the pipeline, who could possibly argue? Here's what...

  • Store Update 6th January 2015 (North America)

    Back to business

    We'd only just gotten used to writing '2014' in the title of these articles, so goodness knows how we're going to deal with the New Year. Fortunately, we don't have a whole let else to think about with this particular story, as meaningful content is thin on the ground. With just a handful of new titles available in this North...

    Time extension

    The worst now appears to be behind us, as Sony has confirmed that the PlayStation Network should finally be running as intended again.

    Wait a minute – today’s big PlayStation birthday bonanza is way too exciting for us to be posting the North American PlayStation Store update like normal, isn’t it? Yes, but we suspect that the majority of you visit this site for the usual gaming news, so we suppose that we better oblige. Here it goes. PS4 Games: The Crew...

  • Store Update 25th November 2014 (North America)

    Different dimension

    A much more condensed North American PlayStation Store update this week, but that doesn’t mean that it isn’t packing some worthwhile additions. Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions is arguably the highlight this time, but Tales from the Borderlands: Episode One – Zer0 Sum has been securing some seriously high review scores, too...

  • News This Is One PS4 Bundle You Won't Find in Your Local Store

    Console major

    Sony loves PlayStation 4 bundles in Europe, this much we already know. However, the platform holder has been slightly less forthcoming with premium hardware packages in North America; aside from the Destiny set and the yet-to-be-released Black Friday packs, there’s not been a whole lot to get excited about in the Land of the Free...

    Full of stars

    Well, then – this is the one that you’ve been waiting for. Grand Theft Auto V, Dragon Age: Inquisition, Far Cry 4, LittleBigPlanet 3, and WWE 2K15 are all highlights on the North American PlayStation Store this week – and that’s without mentioning the smaller stuff such as

    We already had an inkling of the kind of bundles that Sony would be putting out for Black Friday in North America, but now the platform holder has sealed the deal with a post on the PlayStation Blog. While there’s no word yet on PlayStation 3 and Vita deals, the PlayStation 4 is unsurprisingly taking centre stage, with two jumbo sets...

    Dream weaver

    Assassin’s Creed Unity isn’t exactly sneaking onto the North American PlayStation Store this week – more crashing into it like a cannon ball. Ubisoft’s latest and (not so) greatest is available now on the PlayStation 4, and it’s being flanked by spin-off Assassin’s Creed Rogue on last-gen hardware. Meanwhile, the toys are...

    Spacey ace

    There may be more games in this North American PlayStation Store update than you can shake a stick at, but, let’s be honest, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare is the real highlight. Sledgehammer Games’ first-person shooter is looking hot to trot, and is available now on both the PS4 and PS3. Don’t worry if futuristic warfare’s not...

    Take your pick

    Has anyone else got a better introductory sentence? These weekly PlayStation Store updates come around so quickly that we feel like a broken record at times. Still, we suppose that complaining about that fact gives us a new lead in to this North American refresh, which hosts the likes of The Evil Within and Borderlands: The...

    Holy moly

    They say that the PlayStation 4 has no games, but by goodness does this PlayStation Store update argue differently. There are a total of eight new titles to choose from in this week’s North American refresh, as well as a bunch of PlayStation 3 and Vita releases, too. Oddly enough, there’s no mention of the DriveClub: PS Plus Edition,...
