  • Site News We're Looking for a Vibrant Video Producer to Lead Push Square to YouTube Glory

    Hey everyone! It's [Your Name] from Push Square

    We love writing about PlayStation here at Push Square, but apparently the younger generation aren’t quite as fond of the written word. We’ve been meddling with YouTube for several years now, and we’ve published some cracking content in that time. However, with the PlayStation 5 around the corner,...

  • Site News Our PlayStation E3 2019 Coverage Starts Now

    Are you red E?

    Look, let’s address the big white elephant in the non-existent room: whatever happens over the next week or so, this is not going to be a vintage E3 for PlayStation. You can call us cynical if you like, but it’s just not going to be – without Sony in attendance, there’s going to be a gaping hole in our coverage that no...

  • Site News Push Square Is Now Ten Years Old (We Think)

    Remembering a decade of (mostly) outstanding PlayStation coverage

    Every good story starts with a eureka moment! My fledgling music career had fizzled out before I’d even had chance to finish my mathrock cover of Bump in the Night, and a bright-eyed Sammy Barker – then with much better, much blonder hair – decided to do something new. I’d...

  • Feature Happy New Year from the Push Square Team

    Our mission statement for 2019

    No way? No way! It’s surely not 2019 already? Man, the year is going to take some time to sink in – aren’t we supposed to be driving hover cars and living in neon cities by now? Anyway, one thing that’s not up for debate is that the past year was Push Square’s best ever, and as the site approaches its tenth...

  • Site News Push Square Readers Vote for Game of the Year

    Playing favourites

    Push Square’s official Game of the Year has been decided, but you won’t see the editorial team's top ten until later in the month – we’ve got to keep the articles churning through the slow Christmas period, after all. That said, if you want some Game of the Year action right now, then our readers are voting on their...

Seriously, though, this survey comes from our...

  • Site News You Can Now View Push Square's Content as a Timeline

    Options

    Earlier this year we launched our new Push Square layout and we couldn't be happier with it. One of our goals was to better spotlight the breadth of content that we create every single day, without it obstructing general news consumption – and we reckon that we've done an excellent job. However, some regular readers commented that you'd...

  • Site News Welcome to the New Push Square

    Fresh start

    Do you like what we've done to the place? Phwoar, it's pretty bloody spiffing, isn't it? For the past year we've quietly embarked on a Nathan Drake-esque adventure in search of the perfect Push Square facelift. We loved the previous layout just as much as you do, but the simple fact is that we outgrew it; we create such a variety of...

    Cream of the crop

    And there we have it: Game of the Year 2016 is done and dusted.

    'Tis the season, after all

    Psst. Take off your party hat, put down your Christmas cracker, and fall away from your family for a second: we've got something to say. It won't take long, it's only a couple of words. Ready? Happy Holidays! Yeah, that was it really. To be brutally honest, this year's passed in a flash, so it only feels like a few weeks...

    Here's what you can expect

    Good ol' Game of the Year: the perfect excuse to pad out a slow period of news with pre-written articles while we stuff our faces with turkey sandwiches and all attempt to earn the Platinum Trophy in Final Fantasy XV. You may have noticed already, but our coverage is already underway, though things properly get started...

    Look, we're know that you're busy trying to finish The Witness, but can you forget about line puzzles for five minutes, please?

We really, really need your help with this, because...

  • Feature Here's to an Amazing 2016 on Push Square

    Level up

    If you'd have told me 12 months ago that The Last Guardian, Shenmue III, and Final Fantasy VII Remake would be real, I wouldn't have believed you. It's been a roller coaster 2015 for PlayStation fans – and that's without even mentioning Hideo Kojima's decision to partner with Sony on a new PlayStation 4 exclusive. But while the manufactur

  • Feature We Wish You a Very Merry Christmas

    For the festivities

    I write this on a dark and dreary Wednesday evening ten or so days before Christmas.

This year's, er, end of year coverage is going to be our best ever, with a number of our authors sharing their personal Top Five titles of...

  • Community Final Fantasy VII Voted Push Square Readers' Greatest Ever Game

    Cloud nine

    We, along with the rest of the Push Square community, were screaming like little girls when Final Fantasy VII Remake was announced for the PlayStation 4 during Sony's jaw-dropping E3 2015 press conference. It's fitting, then, that little over two months later, the original PSone version of Final Fantasy VII has been voted as Push Square's...

  • Site News Our PlayStation E3 2015 Coverage Starts Now

    Are you red E?

    Buckle up everyone, because E3 2015 is just around the corner. The biggest event in gaming comes around but once a year, and over the course of about a week, we're bombarded with news, release dates, announcements, and trailers from just about every publisher under the sun.

    It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas – which is handy, because when you read this, the big day will have arrived.

    Rockin' around the PS3

    It’s only been Christmas for a few hours, but we suspect you’ve already witnessed a ferocious family feud over the dinner table. How do we know? Well, because it’s much the same scenario in our neck of the woods too. We never imagined that spilled gravy would lead to the equivalent of World War III. Still, while the...
