The PlayStation Recap – Swan Baby Swan Edition

Sid Shuman's Avatar + Posted by Sid Shuman on Oct 28, 2012 // Senior Manager, Social Media

It was a big week for PSN releases, with the long-awaited arrival of the thought-provoking exclusive The Unfinished Swan, the release of the enormously entertaining Frobisher Says! (Protip: it’s free!) and Orgarhythm for PS Vita, a Sports Champions 2 demo and much more — read on for the week’s top 10 most-viewed stories. It was an even bigger week for Assassin’s Creed, with the reveal of the PS3-exclusive Benedict Arnold missions for ACIII, a look at late 18th-century New York City and Boston, and a new video showing off Assassin’s Creed III: Liberation’s use of PS Vita’s touch capabilities.

We also got some great news for Insomniac fans with a Ratchet & Clank: Full Frontal Assault release date and new Fuse interview, an in-depth look at the making of Syphon Filter as part of our Behind the Classics series, a guest post by the producer of the upcoming Family Guy: Back to the Multiverse game, and a new season of GT Academy debuting on SPIKE TV come November 1st.

What are you playing this weekend?

    If I buy Assassins Creed III on PSN do I get the preorder bonuses the stores are giving out? I say we should get all of them. Or at least get to pick which we want. Time to give us a reason to buy from the PSN store.

    If Sony wants PlayStation Vita to sell they need to make consumers want to buy it.

    The consumer that doesn’t purchase handheld consoles: Have all PlayStation 3, PlayStation Network, PS2, PS1 and PlayStation minis games with “cross buy” and cross save as the bare minimum. If it’s possible, have a way to have Remote Play be universal for older games if “cross buy” won’t happen for them.

    Consumer who just cares about unique games: The only games that are exclusive to PlayStation Vita are games that can only be played on PlayStation Vita because of the PlayStation Vita exclusive features, for example, Tearaway, Escape Plan and Smart As to name a few.

    Consumer who wants a good mobile OS and “smart” device: Have the PSVita be a 5″ tablet as well, have a good mobile OS, features and a good app store.

    All consumers: Non overpriced and fair priced memory cards, games and accessories and digital copies of our physical movies.

    I will only buy a PlayStation Vita if that becomes true.
