This week, we kicked off the Play the Future First promotion at Taco Bell — head over before November 10th and you just might win a PS4 before launch day. We also unveiled the pre-order exclusive Knightfall-inspired costumes for Batman: Arkham Origins, you got your first look at the DLC plan for The Last of Us (can’t wait to get that single-player content), Ryan snuck away some juicy details on Thief for PS4 (including how they’ll be incorporating DualShock 4 tech for the game), October’s Instant Game Collection lineup got officially revealed, and lots, lots more.
This week on PS.Blog, we detailed the process by which you’ll be able to upgrade select PS3 games to their PS4 versions, Nick wrote a killer tips guide to help you survive the perils of Spelunky, Ubisoft gave us an extra-close look at what exactly makes Assassin’s Creed IV a next-gen experience on PS4, and more.
A few highlights this week: You can now snag some sweet The Last of Us art to hang on your wall, we revealed some exclusive Infamous: Second Son in-game gear you can get by pre-ordering, Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 ReMIX is finally out on PS3, Ryan brought back hands-on impressions of Ubisoft’s breathtaking new JRPG tribute Child of Light, and Killzone: Mercnary is out now on PS Vita.

Man, how about all those new game trailers? I am so ready for some N++! Other highlights for me: Resogun, Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture, the new inFAMOUS Second Son trailer, Wasteland Kings, Hotline Miami 2, Volume, and Borderlands 2 on PS Vita.
Soul Sacrifice got some free new DLC this week, Sound Shapes turned one year old (and is 50% off for a very limited time) Kickbeat hits PS Vita and PS3 September 3rd, Shadow of the Colossus dethroned The Last of Us in the monthly PSN sales charts, we got a closer look at the inner workings of The Bureau: XCOM Declassified, there’s a new Visualizer app on PS3 from the house of PixelJunk, Q-Games, and more happened this week.
Fans of last year’s PSN SRPG Rainbow Moon, this one’s for you. You saw a spankin’ new trailer for Ubisoft’s open-word techfest Watch_Dogs, the PS.Blog team was lucky enough to play Dragon’s Crown and interview Atlus’ John Hardin about it (of course, Rey was there to get the whole thing on video)…
