recap

This week saw several key announcements for PlayStation, including the PSN Summer Sale, the Journey Collector’s Edition Blu-ray, the launch of The Walking Dead: Episode Two – Starved for Help, and confirmation of a LittleBigPlanet Karting Beta.

Look for the results later this summer right here on PlayStation.Blog.

PSN Community Spotlight

It’s another week to check out unique gaming stories and thoughts via the PSN Community Spotlight. This is your chance to share your story on the PlayStation Community Forums, while snagging a $50 PlayStation Store voucher if your post is selected!

I know I’ve been leaning a bit on the family stories a bit, and next week, I’ll likely shift gears to some more traditional gamer themes, but I saw this story about how PSN Mom gamer Lil_Mermaid_Girl uses Trophies as a fun way of competing with her family and her son, and I couldn’t resist sharing.

Dungeon Twister Brings Board Game to PSN Tuesday

Dungeon Twister

My name is Christophe Boelinger, and I create board games. To date, I’ve made more than 30, most of which are available in North America. My life is dedicated to games, so it goes without saying that I’ve always dreamt of having one of my board games turned into a video game.

So when I met the guys from Hydravision at a board game convention, it was a revelation — and the beginning of Dungeon Twister as a video game. Dungeon Twist makes the jump to PSN this Tuesday, July 3rd.
