This week, we’re recovering from an action-packed GDC, but don’t think for a second that the Blog is slowing down. This last week of March / beginning of April will be just as news-worthy as ever, so keep your eyes peeled for some great stuff right here. Specifically, here’s what you can expect from the week ahead:

Kudos to all you guys for a great GDC blitz; really enjoyed the meetup, even if I only placed 5th in the finals for the tournament :( But hey, that guy who won the big MGS4 PS3 totally deserved it.

Can’t wait to hear what that new PSN game is. :D

I thought R&C was the best news, but then again, I’m a HUGE fan of the series.

Sony’s big announcement ! I hope we get a clue or something from the BLOG before anyone else. Cant wait…

This is going to be a one-sided poll. Well, the R2 DLC is nice, but the Ratchet news is where it’s at.

All around win for Insomniac!

i hope tommorow they announce in-game chat

+ Ackers11 on March 30th, 2009 at 10:33 am said:

What about this announcement tomorrow? you gonna give us a teaser – is it update, ps3 price alteration or game related?

Ooooo! New PSN game? Yeah! I gotta say, with me being as busy as I am, these little games from PSN save what I’ll for the sake of this conversation refer to as my sanity.

Can’t wait to hear what it is! On a hopefully VERY related topic, when do we get to hear something about Trine? I saw the trailer for that awhile back, and it looked like a game I need.

Also, we took a week off for GDC, but is there going to be any live dev chat this week?

+ Ketchup on March 30th, 2009 at 10:34 am said:

Thanks for all your work on the GDC event !

Quick question: can we expect a PSP firmware to delete Go! Messenger icon here in Europe, as it goes down tomorrow ?

The meet up was the best by far IMO. My son won the MGS4 Bundle!

+ xKOROSHIYAx on March 30th, 2009 at 10:36 am said:

So what’s the new PSN game? I really hope it’s Bomberman! I’ve been waiting forever.

I wasn’t really blown away by any GDC news. Although, GDC isn’t really about hype anyway, that’s for E3. Speaking of… I really hope you guys have a better E3 lined up for this year. Last year was very disappointing.

+ KSPRAYDAD on March 30th, 2009 at 10:36 am said:

Leaked GOWIII and Uncharted 2 is high on my list.


13

+ mainpatrg on March 30th, 2009 at 10:37 am said:

This new game better be Gomibako!


14

+ enewtabie on March 30th, 2009 at 10:37 am said:

Peggle perhaps?


15

+ Kxpuc on March 30th, 2009 at 10:40 am said:

no vote for Fat Princess? for shame then Ratchet shall win my vote

Release Demon’s Souls in North America the game is already translated and there’s no point not to release it


16

+ aschx on March 30th, 2009 at 10:48 am said:

Thanks for the update Chris! Since Fat Princess goes unlisted, Ratchet will definitely win my vote! (Can’t wait to submit my weapon either.)

+ The_Punisher111 on March 30th, 2009 at 10:48 am said:

Man ….. my stomach gargles everytime i see Ratchet & Clank A Crack in Time. That game is on my “To buy” list

+ GamerMoney on March 30th, 2009 at 10:48 am said:

can’t wait for e3 now


19

+ Bildo818 on March 30th, 2009 at 10:48 am said:

Yeah, I am not voting since nothing interests me. A fat princess mention would’ve recieved my vote. And in regards to No. 11:

I bought this weekend:

Magicball
Cuboid
Astro Tripper
Burn Zombie Burn
Worms

Yeah, I am loving these PSN games!

+ Heisem on March 30th, 2009 at 10:54 am said:

R&C no doubt but unofficially…honestly it was the GoW tech demo, it’s just amazing how Helios will be crushed by kratos. CAN’T WAIT for both games to come out


21

+ DeforMAKulizer on March 30th, 2009 at 10:55 am said:

Can’t wait to see what you guys have in store for us =D
Xi is excellent, and a new game for PSN? =D
I smell Comet Crash ^^
PS blog team rocks!


22

+ Lugia_EX on March 30th, 2009 at 10:57 am said:

I’m excited about Xi in Home but I can’t login since last Thursday, PS3 keeps freezing while “Downloading”. Is there a fix coming anytime soon?


23

+ acmilanboy on March 30th, 2009 at 10:59 am said:

Is the new PSN the big announcement? Comon!! What is in 2.70!!! HINT!


24

+ mafecto on March 30th, 2009 at 11:00 am said:

Worms sneaking on to the PSN this week is where my vote truly is, although it crashes my PS3 every so often when I log out of their servers…

+ smokey_vols on March 30th, 2009 at 11:01 am said:

I’m enjoying the Xi event in Home. Some good news came out of GDC, I voted for R&C :) . I really hope the new PSN game is Peggel, we know it’s coming!

+ Santhiel on March 30th, 2009 at 11:03 am said:

BTW, any news about the Latin American expansion would be very very very welcomed

Also please give us info about the American release of White Knight Chronicles, is it happenning, like, ever? :(


27

+ mafecto on March 30th, 2009 at 11:03 am said:

The big announcement is a PS2 price drop. I’ve seen the evidence already. Whether or not there may be more to the announcement is yet to be determined but please people, dont get hyped up


28

+ SlashZaku on March 30th, 2009 at 11:04 am said:

Any plans to get SEGA on the Blog soon to talk about the Valkyria Chronicles DLC (pricing, an actual date)?


29

+ Santhiel on March 30th, 2009 at 11:06 am said:

@27: care to share that evidence of yours?


30

+ Insyt on March 30th, 2009 at 11:07 am said:

Will the rumored Firmware Update 2.70 be addressed to be a factual update with a factual release date of tomorrow, or is it all speculated with no such confirmation from Sony/Playstation?


31

+ KentoMaiku on March 30th, 2009 at 11:08 am said:

come on a big annoucement on firmwire go go


32

+ StalkingSilence on March 30th, 2009 at 11:13 am said:

Looking forward to the new PSN game information.


33

+ Jenovah on March 30th, 2009 at 11:18 am said:

Can you guys encourage Namco to release Katamari Tribute on PSN instead of retail?


34

+ AaronF on March 30th, 2009 at 11:26 am said:

I was hoping to hear some more about new playstation.com functionality, such as being able to compare trophies on the website and message your Friends.


35

+ lakaiHIGH on March 30th, 2009 at 11:26 am said:

I liked how there was no ps3 price cut.

oh wait, that sucks.


39

+ TheInfectedBy590 on March 30th, 2009 at 11:31 am said:

Hardly anything from Team Ico = :(
No new firmware announcements = :(
No word on US releases of WKC
and Demon’s Souls = :(

GDC was kind of a disappointment…
I hope whatever announcement Sony has tomorrow is a good one! I’m excited :)

+ loxapac on March 30th, 2009 at 11:34 am said:

a new psn game, for my psp please !


41

+ LokeSTL on March 30th, 2009 at 11:35 am said:

e) None of the above.

No RPGs for PS3 = fail. Where are White Knight Chronicles, The Last Remnant, & Demon Souls release dates for the PS3 in the US?


42

+ wu-stix on March 30th, 2009 at 11:35 am said:

Anyone else notice that jaknov is missing? I guess once you’ve read one of his posts you’ve read them all. But I would like to see those japanese games come to North America (Demon’s Souls and WKC) but I would prefer to see some Yakuza 3, hell if they had english subs I would import it.


43

+ niall077 on March 30th, 2009 at 11:36 am said:

oh and the leaked God of war 3 and Uncharted 2 gameplay was awesome.

I need more Drake in my life.

47

+ kdiep on March 30th, 2009 at 12:10 pm said:

You guys suck, how about Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2? That game is way more exciting than any of the bs options you put up. You disappoint me greatly


48

+ chriscowboyd on March 30th, 2009 at 12:14 pm said:

The new PSN game will most likely be from UK developer Just Add Water and called Project V or the Gomibako game that was recently released in Japan.


49

+ Zezzler on March 30th, 2009 at 12:22 pm said:

I hope the new PSN Game is either Peggle or Bomberman Ultra.
Cant wait for the Takahshi interview either, I REALLY want multi-boy.
looks like a great week.

What about the big news for tomorrow? Is it a new firmware update? I hope Eric Lempel spills the beans :)
