PULSE 1/17 Edition: Preview of 2012

Kevin Furuichi's Avatar + Posted by Kevin Furuichi on Jan 17, 2012 // Executive Producer, PlayStation Network

After an extended holiday break, PULSE returns today with a look at some of the big games coming in 2012. From the gorgeous Final Fantasy XIII-2 scheduled at the end of this month, Twisted Metal on Valentine’s Day through Spring releases such as the highly anticipated crossover Street Fighter X Tekken, the intriguing Journey, and the ‘build and battle’ of Starhawk, we hope you enjoy these reminders of the year ahead. Christina Lee also takes a look at some of the PlayStation Vita games just over the horizon and also looks back at top game downloads of 2011 with a Top 11 list of the best.

Watch the full edition of PULSE in the “What’s New” section under the PlayStation Network icon when the PlayStation Store updates later today. Remember, you can also download in full HD or to you PSP.

So, does anyone know yet if the PS3 & PS Vita games have separate trophies? Example: FFX HD is getting a PS3 version & a Vita version(if I understand correctly). Will each edition come with it’s own set of trophies, or are they shared?

Will there be separate Pulse and Qore programs just for the PS Vita in North America once it’s released?

I was excited for 13-2 until I played the demo and read GI’s review, you can only play as serah, Noel, and monsters that u capture, also.. what’s with the lame ass battle music, I literally said wtf out loud, as a huge fan of ff 13( I got the platinum trophy!) I’m dissapointed at the lack of a more story driven experience and character development that the series is known for. It was originally going to be a day one purchase for me but now I’m definately waiting for a price drop..

Glad to see that Christina Lee is still hosting Pulse, unlike the abomination that Qore has become. . .

One of my uses for Vita will be keeping up with Pulse, which should be both longer and weekly. Playstation has the content to easily fill a weekly show & Ms. Lee deserves a weekly job
