The PlayStation Recap: What We’re Reading

Justin Massongill's Avatar Posted by on Feb 16, 2013 // Social Media Manager, SIEA

This week on PlayStation.Blog, LittleBigPlanet and PlayStation Home got some Valentine’s Day DLC, Inspector Carmelita Fox tried her luck in the online dating market, we talked about the tough choices you’ll have to make in upcoming PS Vita epic Soul Sacrifice, Urban Trial Freestyle on PS3 and PS Vita gets an off-the-wall challenge mode, and lots more!

I got to play some Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance this week, and though it’s my first Platinum game, I’m suddenly very interested in checking out the dev’s earlier work. I also grabbed Closure since it’s free on PlayStation Plus, and it’s making for some relaxing (but sometimes disturbing) nighttime gaming. Rounding out my week is the smoothly animated new PS Vita release Rocketbirds: Hardboiled Chicken.

What are you playing this weekend?

Hi Justin,

I’d appreciate it if you could get in touch with Sony Santa Monica and find out why there has been a bait-and-switch with the Kratos statue in the Collector’s Edition of God of War: Ascension.

It was originally supposed to be an 8″ tall statue of Kratos, and in my opinion it looked much better in terms of posing and appearance of quality materials and workmanship. Now it is 6″ tall, and doesn’t look nearly as good in terms of posing, or quality.

I pre-ordered the Collector’s Edition solely for the 8″ statue, and I am now considering downgrading my pre-order depending upon the respone I get back from you from Sony Santa Monica.

It seems that most gamers nowadays do not have attention spans or memories that last longer than 30 seconds, but I know I couldn’t possibly be the only one that has noticed the switch, and would appreciate answers.

Thanks in advance for your help. (Hopefully this thank you isn’t premature.)

I’m with #2 and like him and many others i pre-ordered based that collectors edition “BASED ON WHAT WAS BEEN PROMOTED/SOLD” to us when it was first announced on this blog.

Please do not ignore legitimate questions from consumers.

Awaiting for clarification. Thank you

I’m playing Legacy of Kain: Blood Omen and Fear Effect on my Vita, which for some reason is not available to us loyal North American customers. I had to set up a UK account to play my favorites from back in the day. Shame on you NA PSN keeping these gems from your NA brethren. Shame on you.
