PlayStation Around the Web: What We Read

Jeff Rubenstein's Avatar + Posted by Jeff Rubenstein on Sep 28, 2008 // Sr. Social Media Manager

If the reading list seems a bit shorter than usual, it’s because I’ve been on the road (LittleBigPlanet@Parsons, Resistance 2 press event, PSB Orlando Meet-up). That means I’ll need your help with links – please let us know what you’ve been reading in the comments below.

The PS Blog weekly reading list (Week of 9/22)

And as I’m waiting at the airport, one more thing to drool over.

I hope there’s no 2 player co-op trophies, i’m screwed if there is, or I hope they can be unlocked in 8 player online co-op.

@001

Depends, if you like white-knuckle crazy anti-grav racing, or if you are a hardcore R&C fan. Me, I own both, but WipEout is definitely worth more for the money.

Good thing you didn’t post that crappy review of Wipeout HD on Gamespot. :D
Haters over there.

+ CitizenInsane27 on September 28th, 2008 at 3:21 pm said:

@Chaos_Bladez

Yeah, they are sometimes. From the context of their review, it was very positive, the impressions I got from it was that the game was an 8.5 or a 9/10, yet they docked it way too severely. They always give harsher scores than most outlets because they feel new games need to be judged harder than old ones were, which is fine when it’s a $60 retail title, but the fact that yes, WipEout HD features all the tracks from the PSP titles is kind of lame, BUT the PSP titles are still expensive, the two of them together would cost about $50 USD. Now, compare that to the $20 HD spectacular on the PSN. I’d say that alone merits it a higher score regardless of it’s pre-existent formats.

Steering Wheel in WOHD. That way I don’t have to set fire to my PS3 in protest. I was always able to break the disk and send it back. :(

Mirror’s Edge On PS3 Gets Exclusive DLC

kotaku.com/5044129/mirrors-edge-on-ps3-gets-exclusive-dlc

If it’s true that only the ps3 is getting DLC, and not the 360, then you guys should promote this more around November 11.

+ FeaturePreacher on September 28th, 2008 at 5:55 pm said:

I hope Little Big Planet sells well. However, I also hope Sony has enough sense to release a PS3 SKU that has the official bluetooth headset bundled with a PS3 and the game, that is if Little Big Planet is the system seller that Sony hopes it will be.

Hi Jeff.

I haven’t commented here in a long time, mainly because I’ve been busy on another website. I’ve still read most of the posts (but not their comments), and I really like these “PlayStation around the Web” posts.

Since I am working part time and taking >18 credit-hours at college, I don’t have a tremendous amount of free time. Being able to just look at one post each week and read basically everything that’s going on in the PlayStation world (and the gaming world in general) is incredibly nice, and the articles you find are excellent.

I just wanted to thank you for taking the time to read all those articles and find the ones that you think are interesting/informative.

Keep up the good work there at Sony! Tell the guys at Studio Liverpool that Wipeout rocks, will ya?

I can’t believe this…everyone knows that Xbox has the red ring of fire….well there is something like that for the ps3 and its called the yellow light of doom….this yellow light is just like the red ring. so everyone who has a ps3 be very careful you do not get the yellow light of doom.

Just wanted to advise other Canadians, Future Shop in Canada now has pre-orders available on their site.

PS3 Fanboy put out the message and today I went to the link Fanboy provided and ordered my copy.

An email was sent immediately from Future Shop to confirm that my order was indeed placed.
