The PlayStation Recap: What We’re Reading

Justin Massongill's Avatar + Posted by Justin Massongill on Jan 05, 2013 // SCEA Social Media Specialist

Welcome back! I hope that your holiday break was as fulfilling as mine (and by that I mean I finally wrapped up Persona 4 Golden). Did you clear out your backlog at all? Or maybe you got more games as gifts, that are now contributing to that pile?

During the break, we got some holiday cards from developers such as Superbot and Naughty Dog, we got a first ears-on with Soul Sacrifice’s Skywalker Sound scoring sessions, got you a holiday-themed papercraft reindeer from the Tearaway team, and plenty more.

With Persona 4 Golden finally finished (no Platinum Trophy… yet), I’m moving on to one I probably should have played by now: The Walking Dead. I’m only one episode in so far, but I hope that since I’m actively playing it now, Sid will stop scowling at me whenever I talk about playing anything else.

What are you playing this weekend?

  • I’m playing: The Walking Dead, Persona 3 FES (PS2 Classic)
  • I’m watching: Django Unchained, Les Misérables
  • I’m listening to: Persona Soundtracks, Nujabes, PlayStation Blogcast 057

I just got a Vita on New Years (Assassin’s Creed Bundle), along with Persona 4 Golden and Ragnarok Oddysey. Also, with PS+ I have half a dozen other games on it to play. So yeah, my backlog definitely grew by quite a bit these holidays.

Oh and I finally got Playstation All Stars Battle Royale. Futureshop had it on sale for 30 bucks off.

So many games to play and so little time. And I’m trying not to think about the mountain of awesome games that are coming out this year (Ni No Kuni, Last of Us, GTAV, Tales of Xillia, Bioshock Infinite, etc etc). This is going to be a busy year for gaming…

Oh, I’m with you man! I finished Persona 4 Golden, then I started Persona 3 (I’m in june already) and finished The Walking Dead! Three GREAT games…

I missed two news:

1º. What about PlayStation Destination in february?

Will he have some news about PlayStation 4?

I really hope so… and I really hope Sony don’t forget PS Vita!!!

2º. WHAT ABOUT THE PATENTED TECHNOLOGY AGAINST USED GAMES???

I think we DESERVE an explanation from Sony.

Is that the future of the new console?

If it is, you can say goodbye to A LOT of gamers…

New Vita for xmas… declassified bundle.
And being PLaystation + I’m playing a crap ton of games. Nice marketing plan for the Vita!
Playing: Golden Abyss, Mutant Blobs Attack, Blops Declassified, (want to play the cross controller with LBP2 but don’t have the 500 MB of space on my Vita yet… Uncharted sucked it up. Also going back to Skyrim for awhile, Playstation All Stars (going for the PLat trophy… Need that one, the “this is living”), I also dipped into Mix Superstar… that is a hoot.
Yay, games.

Playing on Vita: Persona 4 golden…still, because I am also working on beating When Vikings Attack, MGS 3, and AC3 at the same time. I did finally beat Uncharted GA though!

Playing on PS3: Arkham City, signed up for plus on EU concurrently with my USA account. Playing more vita than PS3 now, but picked up a huge backlog of ps3 games due to the awesome plus holiday sales. I picked up: Papo & Yo, Tokyo Jungle, Journey, and 3 other games that I can’t remember at this time. Huge backlog on plus from EU and USa to get through too. I think I am about to set an ultimatum to not buy any more until i finish this backlog.

Playing the Mass Effect Trilogy. I’ll be walking on the Moon later tonight.

You should play Persona 4 next. If they released it on PSN you’ll get to see just how much better Golden really is.

@sesyjon Morgan Haro said Lumines is part of a different sale and not the holiday essentials one. So I doubt you’ll see a price change on it. If you really want it, I say pick it up now before it goes away with the next store update

just curious if you guys happen to be reading the feedback for the terrible content that has been and continues to be offered to US PS+ members ? It seems this question is avoided pretty well here. Why cant you put up offers that are on par with what the EU has ? Simple questions
