The PlayStation Recap

29 5

Next week’s shaping up to be a big one, seeing the PS3 releases of Enslaved: Odyssey to the West, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow, NBA 2K11 (with PlayStation Move Support), and more. I’m eager to try Castlevania and Enslaved; What are you waiting for?

In other news, Jeff and Rey are preparing to propel themselves into the snowy utopia that is Toronto, Canada for Tuesday’s PlayStation Canada Meetup. Expect to play Killzone 3, Gran Turismo 5, LittleBigPlanet 2, and a host of other PS3 and PSP games, including guest appearances by games from EA, Konami, Activision, Ubisoft, and more. It’s a big venue (the Sony Centre in downtown Toronto) but be sure to RSVP now to ensure you can get in.
