Its the season for ice cold weather and for the PlayStation Network to take center stage with digital releases like, LittleBigPlanet: Sackboy’s Prehistoric Moves, X-Men: The Arcade Game and EA’s sandbox superhero title, Prototype. Stack up on your digital PSN simoleons and ring in the digital age with this week’s The Drop.
LittleBigPlanet: Sackboy’s Prehistoric Moves — A stand-alone LittleBigPlanet mini-game available through PlayStation Network and designed around the PlayStation Move controller, Sackboy’s Prehistoric Moves lets gamers use the Move to get Sackboy through 10 levels dominated by dinosaurs, where the Evil Big Rex is king.
The player with the PlayStation Move controller leads the charge, flicking switches and triggering platforms to help the other players, using DualShock Controllers, through each level. Leap between Dino heads, use the Move controller to blast aside crates of bubbles, ride dinosaurs through prehistoric cities, and take to the heights of tree canopies—then team up to defeat Big Rex, all while collecting Trophies along the way.
Prototype — Players take control of Alex Mercer – a dark, genetically mutated shape-shifter with no memory of his past, hell-bent on solving the mystery of his existence as he tears through a densely populated New York City moving with Parkour-style fluidity and consuming anything that gets in his way.
X-Men: The Arcade Game — Wolverine, Storm, Cyclops, Dazzler, Colossus and Nightcrawler must battle through Brotherhood of Evil Mutants in this action-packed beat ’em up based on the comic book franchise. For the first time ever, the arcade action comes home in a complete reproduction of the original hit! The double-screen action has been conformed for more modern widescreen HDTVs, allowing all six mutant heroes to be on-screen at one time.
