Well, it’s been a wild week. Not only did we announce the long-awaited Gran Turismo 6, we also went hands-on with a smattering of upcoming games at our pre-E3 Judges’ Day event (look for our impressions over the next couple weeks).
Greetings, dear readers, and welcome to the weekend. Commencing recap:
We got confirmation of a limited art book for Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 ReMIX pre-orders, Sid hacked the mainframe to bring you some salacious new Watch_Dogs details, our new documentary for The Last of Us takes an intimate (maybe that’s the wrong word…) look at the game’s Infected, you got some unique Offerings in Soul Sacrifice (without having to sacrifice a single cent!), the beautifully animated Muramasa: Rebirth is coming to PS Vita, and we announced three (count ‘em) new games coming to PlayStation platforms: Hohokum, CounterSpy and Doki-Doki Universe.
Your friendly neighborhood social media team is all moved in at PlayStation’s new HQ, but aside from a nicer view it’s business as usual at PS.Blog. Plenty of news and inside looks this week, along with a strong showing from the weekly PSN update. If you haven’t listened to this week’s Blogcast yet, tune in for a preview of the month’s PlayStation Plus content (and for a really awkward conversation about my apparent obsession with PaRappa).
Ratchet & Clank are making a movie, the super low-fi — but impressively narrated — Thomas Was Alone landed on PS3 and PS Vita, Beyond: Two Souls made an appearance at Tribeca Film Festival (check out the new trailer here), we gathered a list of all the currently announced fighters in Divekick — including more statistics about them than you probably want to know, we saw a new Splinter Cell Blacklist trailer, there’s a crazy Tomb Raider sale happening on PSN right now, we announced the unfathomably adorable Jacob Jones and the Bigfoot Mystery, and more.
The free Soul Sacrifice demo is out now (and your saves will transfer to the full game, so get on it!), DUST 514′s skill system is getting an upgrade, the beloved Castle of Illusion is getting an HD remaster on PS3, test your ninja skills with Draw Slasher on PS Vita Tuesday, Zombie Tycoon 2 has a bloody bucketful of classes with which to assault your enemy, and more.
What are you playing this weekend?
This week on PlayStation.Blog, you got a look at The Last of Us: American Dreams Issue #1 (check @PlayStation on Twitter this weekend for a chance to win a digital copy), side-scrolling beat-em-up Sacred Citadel is coming to PSN April 16th, we couldn’t stop talking about Divekick, video streaming service EPIX came to PSN, and more.
We’re back, well-rested after last week’s GDC, and ready to return to our regularly scheduled Blogcasting. This week, we considered spoiling BioShock Infinite (we’ll save that for next week), gushed about the simple-yet-sensational Divekick, and interviewed industry luminary Keiji Inafune. All this, along with next week’s new PSN releases, a selection of 100% organic listener tips and voicemails, and much more.
