The PlayStation Recap

39 14

E3 2010 is over, but the information onslaught certainly isn’t — we’ve got lots of new details on a slew of upcoming PS3 and PSP games like Final Fantasy XIV, God of War: Ghost of Sparta, and Deus Ex: Human Revolution. Look for a few more interviews to hit next week. Dead Space 2, anyone?

As for me, I’m planning on a quiet, tranquil weekend interspersed with sessions of ultraviolence in the Medal of Honor beta. I might also get around to finishing Red Dead Redemption, though my progress has slowed considerably — every time I try to complete a mission, I can’t help but take potshots at birds or skin animals.

What will you be playing?
