PlayStation Around the Web: What We Read

Jeff Rubenstein's Avatar Posted by on Aug 07, 2011 // Sr. Social Media Manager

It’s been a fun week; in case you missed it, we dropped by IGN’s Podcast Beyond #200, where we shared the joy of UNCHARTED 3 multiplayer, and I extolled the virtues of Galaga Legions DX, which I’ve been enjoying since Tuesday. My lil brother is in town from the East Coast, so it’s been fun catching up on Castle Crashers PSN, which I had never gotten the chance to really dive into. It’s fun, and filled with potty humor. Perfection.

What are you playing this weekend?

Next up for PlayStation (and this Blog): We’ll be heading out to Old World Europe at the end of the week for Gamescom. Expect a full slate of updates once the show kicks off.

The PS.Blog weekly reading list (Week of August 1, 2011)

Hah! The Nathan Drake/Penguin story was awesome to read. Hard to believe that was Nolan North, he sounds amazing as the Penguin.

Wouldn’t be much of a PlayStation fan if I didn’t love IGN’s PS3 exclusive story. So true and I hope SCE WWS keep getting bigger.

Have fun at GamesCom PlayStation Blog team! As Audrey Cleo would say, “I am jelly.”

not bad readings for the week

Another interesting article Jeff, I don’t believe half of this list is something to take to the bank. However Insomniac (though I believe the obstacle is our buddy Ted Price and not an unwillingness on Sony’s part), Housemarque, Level-5, Q-games, Thatgamecompany, and Sanzaru are companies of interest and each have proven themselves to prove a decent enough product line to keep wind in the sails. Now if we can only get more high production JRPG’s on the PS3 with good story lines :-P

Thanks Jeff, I love checking each week Around the Web: What We Read, it keeps me updated lol, btw I read there’s a new PS3 Slim coming to NA labeled CECH-3001A/B, it is true and how much will it be since my 80gb PS3 got YLOD a week ago :( but still PS3 for life :)

Hey Jeff, good stuff at IGN’s podcast.

By the way, Catherine’s trophies still don’t appear on the official site.

Can you guys please add them? Thanks!

Woo! Beyond!!! Glad to see you and Rey at the podcast. Keep making those minis haha!

I just recently beaten Catherine, such a great game and Jeff i been wondering, will sony ever give us the chance or the ability to change our ID names? i mean it should be a good revenue generator for the company maybe $6.99 to change your ID so those who really want to make a new name but dont want to lose all the trophies can change them with paying a fee.. o how i wish sony would have this feature, changing our ID names is all i want :P. keep telling sony about this please :)

OK maybe you’ll answer me this time instead of ignoring me the last time. anyway why is raystorm hd still not on the ps store yet?. its been well over a year and its still not hear also why hasn’t siren blood cures has had a permanent price drop yet. seriously its been 3yrs and its still $39.99. also i love ps+ but here lately its been very mediocre did u guys run out of stuff already? seriously this week update for + is terrible. i know darn well u guys have way more to offer than that crap u are about to give us this Tuesday.

Hey Jeff, I was wondering if there was any reasoning behind the swap of the pack in title for the upcoming 3D TV bundles this week.

To me, Resistance 3 seemed like a great game to throw into the bundle. I played the Battle: LA Blu-Ray demo and was blown away by this new installment. I actually planned on holding off from purchasing it on its 9/6 launch, knowing it was coming with this.

Now, I don’t have to wait any longer because I’ll be getting the game when it launches in September.

Anyway, I already have Motorstorm: Apocalypse (Best One Yet By The Way), and I’m just puzzled by the decision to make that game the pack in title as opposed to something not out yet, like Resistance 3 or Uncharted 3.

Don’t get me wrong, the bundle is still high on my Holiday wishlist but I am just curious as to the swap, which from what I seen was only briefly mentioned on Insomniac’s Facebook, but never explained.

If your using a ps vita as a ps3 controller that would be awsome.

Informative & interesting, thanks.

I am eagerly awaiting whatever news you all will be revealing @ Gamescon.

+ EggySong85 on August 8th, 2011 at 5:26 am said:

One of the biggest features I am hoping for with Vita is the ability to remotely log into my PS3 and play it from any wifi connection. I don’t know if that’s realistic, though. I don’t know if the connection speeds could handle it. I also hope to see at least 90% of all existing PSN games be fully playable and transferrable to Vita.
