PlayStation Around the Web: What We Read

89 11

Next Sunday, this list will be filled with stories from the past week’s PlayStation media events in LA and Seattle; impressions of inFAMOUS, Uncharted 2, and… other things. In the meantime, PS3-exclusive playable Joker in Batman: Arkham Asylum and Dante’s Inferno coming to PSP? Yes please!

And if you’ve read anything good in the last week, please feel free to share it below. If not, we can consider this the calm before the flood :-)

  • im also glad that PS3 sales are doing so well!

  • Second comment. [win]

  • Hmmm, I wonder what do you mean about “other things”, can’t wait for this week’s news, hey Jeff what do you think about Batman: Arkham Asylum? It looks really good & I want to know how it’ll turn out.

  • i want more R&C news and the SuckerPunch interviews.

  • about Quantum of Solace DLC problem which I queried about you last week:

    the problem is that I paid £4 for the ‘Camille Map Pack’ when it was on the UK Playstation Store. Every time I play QoS online (which is a lot, as I need 100,000 credits for my platinum trophy) the new maps never get played. There is no way for me to search the servers for games on these maps and they have mysteriously dissapeared from the store. If you could shed any light on the matter, or get activision to say something, it would be appreciated.

    • OK, I can forward this to my contacts at Activision (and I will). Not sure where the problem lies, but I\’ll give them your PSN ID so they can let you know, if that\’s cool.

  • Can we have a Collector’s Edition for Ratchet and Clank Future: A Crack in Time? If we can, can you give us a survey for it, like with God of War 3?

  • I am so damn stoked for this week’s news on Uncharted2, inFAMOUS, (hopefully Heavy Rain and a bit of MAG).

    Hopefully you’ll do us proud, Jeff. So far you’ve been shining on those video interviews – don’t forget: looking into the camera makes us feel like real people, and that spark in your eye reminds us that you have a soul.

    Believe me, that can go a long way! ^^

  • Jeff i have a question regarding the pre order bonuses for inFAMOUS…. in Canada where do we get the demo and the exclusive super power?

  • Jeff or Chris.
    I have a couple questions:
    – a little old, but any clue if Canada is getting PSN cards? just curious
    – Will we hear anything about Peggle, Bomberman Ultra, and FFVII on PSN anytime soon?
    – and will the American version of Final Fantasy VII Advent Children Complete Blu-Ray come with a FFXIII Demo?

    Thanks~ Great week by the way. some good reads

  • Cant wait for some new uncharted info, some gameplay footage would be nice.

  • @9
    I wanted to ask ’bout FFXIII demo as well)))

  • The Uncharted/inFAMOUS announcement got spoiled. I think it’s great news.

  • PURE AWESOME!!!!! Can’t wait to see what you guys have in store for us =D

  • So, did you finally ban the “most important things” spammers? It’s nice not having to read around their comments.

  • oooh….the calm before the flood? yummy ;)

  • Ha ha, you didn’t post the early confirmations of tomorrows “shocking announcement”

    Personally, I think its as pointless and a waste of developement resources as Heavy Rain having a Deathmatch Mode would be.

    Find another way to stop people from renting or trading in single player games please.

  • Is the Joker really PS3 exclusive?

    I though i saw a story that said it wasn’t…

  • Tomorrow’s the big day ain’t it? That shocker announcement sony is going to make.

  • I liked that article on the making of PlayStation, I usually wouldn’t read something that long but VERY interesting indeed. I also can’t wait for all the announcements from that secret press conference.

  • I hope Demon’s Souls is in these upcoming news! :p

  • I’ve always been curious, if Sony is showing a good deal of their stuff a good few weeks before E3 proper to the press, what will they be showing them then?

  • Last week was cool, but this one looks even better. Jeff I wanted to ask, what do you think of brutal legend?

  • i found this about the burnout paradise mode called Cops & Robbers coming this thursday.

  • Good week and can’t wait for the next!

    We need those promised PS1 classics on PSN. Come on!

  • I hope the melee combat in the Uncharted 2 multiplayer beta is not dumbed down from the single player game. Plus I hope there will be some 1 or 2 person vehicles in Uncharted 2’s multiplayer along with the ability to shoot while using cords and ziplines.

  • @ Jeff R.

    Are we going to hear more of PSP’s LittleBigPlanet here on the *Blog* before E3’2009?

  • Kojima Talks Zone of the Enders 3 and a HD Remake for Zone of the Enders 2:

  • Its been a great week.
    cant w8 4 nxt week with all the MAG, infamous, and Bioshock 2 infos!

  • yeah i’m really psyched about all the rpgs that are coming to the ps3 and to the psp …too bad that atlus doesnt want gamestop to carry crimson gem saga because thats a game that i have been looking for quite sometime now. plus, all the other rpg goodness that are forthcoming soon like cross edge, white knight story and i hope atelier rorona. lets just cross our fingers for that secret rpg unveiling that nippon ichi is going to do by may 7th

    btw, jeff is the calm before the storm not the flood LOL :P

  • please make a booster pack for comet crash. The best tower defense game on the psn, support it.

  • Jeff, the flood is going to be great =)I already know what you are talking about because it will be announced tomorrow! But I won’t spoil it for the people that want it to be a surprise. Overall good week. Not bad. Next week will kill big time =D

  • Can’t wait for the electrifying announcement tomorrow!

  • the surprise announcement that i want would be SP returning to sly.

  • @33 I bet you it has to do something with Uncharted 2 multiplayer ;)

  • Hey Jeff, I recently came across a problem with the blog. It no longer gives you the option to go to the next page at the bottom of the comments. So it forces me to go all the way back to the top to go to the next page. Is this a problem on yall’s end or mine?

    Ok on to playstation. David Jaffe still working with playstation?? That’s a must read. Also it’s only a matter of time the PS3 tops the Wii here in america too. Don’t forget the PS3 was released a good year or two after. All Sony needs to do is learn to market. Recently I came across my friend who wanted to buy a blu-ray player. I told him to buy the PS3 it’s a blu ray player and more. He was like “really I never knew.” What kind of marketing is Peter Dille and John Koller doing??? I hope Sony isn’t paying them. :P


  • pPlease

  • l

  • oh and cust5om avatars

  • I want MAG news! You guys have been pretty quiet with MAG until last week!

  • Oh and is Ken Kuteragy still making Playstation systems?

  • Check BestBuy out people. A lot of games are now S9.99. If you are a trophy whore, then you can get tree games with trophies for $30.

  • O M F G… other things? Are we going to see footage of LBP PSP? that would be awesomesauce.

  • Kind of bummed out that Uncharted will have multiplayer, hopefully it’s only co-op. Not every game this gen has to have multiplayer. It’s a shame Bioshock and Uncharted (phenomenal campaign only games) are now heading down that route.
