The Uncharted 3 hype train has officially left the station and there’s no stopping it now. This year’s Spike Video Game Awards ended the night with the ultimate closure with the full reveal of the Uncharted 3’s announcement trailer, concluding an epic evening of mouth watering trailers for Mass Effect 3, Resistance 3 and Kratos entering the realm of Outworld seeking Mortal Kombat with a triumphant (and augmented) bang. Let’s continue the weekend with more reveals and video game celebration, shall we?


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.

Sackboy’s Prehistoric Moves

PlayStation Network

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.

Prince Of Persia: Warrior Within — Hunted by Dahaka, an immortal incarnation of Fate seeking divine retribution, the Prince embarks upon a path of both carnage and mystery to defy his preordained death. His journey leads to the infernal core of a cursed island stronghold harboring mankind’s greatest fears. Only through grim resolve, bitter defiance and the mastery of deadly new combat arts can the Prince rise to a new level of warriorship — and emerge from this ultimate trial with his life.

Marvel Pinball PS3: Wolverine

Marvel Pinball — Join Spider-Man, Wolverine, Iron Man, and Blade on four pinball tables powered by the dazzling Pinball FX 2 engine. Use your pinball wizardry to save the world from the most notorious super villains, and relive the greatest moments of the classic Marvel Universe in an epic pinball adventure!

PSone Classics – Japan Imports

Galaxy Fight — Number of legends exist throughout the planets of our galaxy that say the Divine Being appears once every millennium. The time is upon us now, and many have converged on the Denius system to greet the Divine Being. Without this god of legend, all is dark and empty. His name is Felden Crais and he knows only one way of doing things. He is neither benevolent nor malevolent, but his power is omnipotent. No one mortal being is more powerful than he.

PlayStation minis

I Must Run! — I Must Run is the skill-based action running game. Jump over gaps in prison buildings, run through an underground station and test your reflexes in a deadly run over construction yard cranes. Reach the city center and save your wife. Remember, you have only 24 hours. You must run!

  • it was uncharted 3, i am happy for that but i also feel lied to :(

  • Hey Rey,

    What’s the update on the Exclusive Reveal?

  • ha take that xbox only gear of war 3 wow… God OF WAR is better

  • Patience, guys, patience.As #36 said, Arne’s Uncharted 3 11/1/11 article says it will be revealed over the NEXT FEW WEEKS.

  • When are we gonna hear about the game reveal today?

    And is the Prince of Persia Trilogy ever coming out on a single disk?

  • Yo Rey, it was nice meeting you at the VGA event last night!

  • Should I ask the million dollar question? the same question that everyone is asking!


    Don’t let us down!

  • Where’s the exclusive reveal???

  • @25 +1 Needs me sum more HSG…

  • I received this direct message from PlayStation on Twitter.

    We only told game media and press the 12/12 thing, other media blew it outta proportion. We never talked about it on the Blog, only media.

  • Oh Prototype! Cool, might finally get it. How much is it? 20 clams?

  • I thought Prototype was a Activision game.

  • What about Under Siege? :(

  • Sly 4 is coming out already. Damn so many whiners on here! Anyways great drop Rey and I have bought a PSN card just for this ;).

  • Can’t wait for the Sunday reveal! Only 18 mins left!

  • Since Chrono Cross is getting released on the Japanese PSN, is there any chance that we will see it released on the US PSN as well?

  • So it’s final theres no exclusive reveal, no starhawk being revealed anytime soon, only uncharted 3 well i’m disappointed because i’ve been up only because of this better get some sleep and see if any things up hopefully there is. :(

  • @50 I don’t believe it was UC3 they said after the VGA’S on sunday that they would reveal something new for the ps3 can’t remember the site that I read it on but they where guessing UC3 sly cooper4 or a new feature BTW wheres my static theme for UC3 they said they would send me an email but it never showed up in my email box?

  • How much is Prototype as a download? BTW … I wonder if the Uncharted Stuff on the PS store AFTER the VGA video reveal was the “Surprise” after part … as it’s unusual to get an extra to the ‘weekly’ store update.

  • How about SSX Deadly Decent?
    I hope it’s as good as the first ones.
    As well as I hope Uncharted 3 is as good as 2.
    I really doubt we’ll be let down.

  • Rey can you find out about the new U3 dynamic theme not being 1920×1080? The top of the background stops about 10% short for people who use native mode or actual scanning for their TV setting. The only theme that does this. Thx.

  • Wow..lots of moaning for this “exclusive reveal”! I’m sure it was just Uncharted 3. Besides, if it wasn’t, it would be very hard to overcome all of the media blitz over U3.

    Anyway, am I the only one excited for these games coming out on PSN? Marvel Pinball, the original X-Men arcade game in HD, and sandbox game Prototype, all in 1 week? Amazing! And there’s a bunch of stuff coming out on the 21st as well!

  • Okay, it’s confirmed by the Playstation twitter account that the “reveal” was Uncharted 3, in case none of you have caught on by now. The “reveal” was a press event in L.A. for game journalists, probably with gameplay of Uncharted 3.

  • So the reveal was Uncharted 3……Don’t get me wrong, im SUPER excited for it, but why say there was a reveal on sunday when it was revealed earlier?

  • Awesome drop and awesome VGA announcements. Really looking forward to Uncharted 3, Skyrim, Batman and of course ME 3 ;-)

    As much as I was hoping there would be some icing on the awesome cake, we have to remember that the only reason any of us know about the Dec. 12th reveal is because some “news” sites shared an invitation THEY received online to generate hits.

    If it ain’t on the Blog, it ain’t official.

  • @45

    Under Siege is delayed a last minute bug was found.

  • @72, I completely agree. I had seen an add that said “save the date” and the date was 12/12. I vehemently stabbed my f5 button all day long… Obviously, I got nothing.


  • No psp games?

    Well i guess its ok since X-men Arcade is going to be taking my attention.

  • *raises eyebrow… No PS3 games?

  • where is the reveal

  • Jesus, I think every comment on this post has the word ‘reveal’ in it. Mines included!

  • Prince of Persia Warrior Within will be mine!! =D

  • Sony sure knows how to disappoint…

  • Hey Rey I still didn’t get an email for that free static UC3 theme and when I try a different email address it says its not a valid email even though it’s any suggestions would be appreciated cheers

  • Where is the ps3’s big reveal?????????????????????????????????? I’m really disappointed in Sony for misleading me.

  • the video game awards were alright but i was hoping they would talk about the psp phone….or any new titles..but not a renew title…

  • Nothing worth buying this week. Where’s the exclusive reveal promised for today? Oh well, Uncharted 3 is good enough, I guess. Oh, and the rebirth of the SSX series! :D


  • What about the Neo Geo games? Isn’t that this week?

  • New ratchet & clank?

  • To bad we are not getting the disc verion of the PoP games. :(

    Also I am willing to bet that while Warrior Within will look great, it will still have all those bugs that plagued it back on the PS2. Which is a SHAME, because they could easily be fixed nowadays.


  • whats the sony reveal and if uncharted 3 was the reveal that is awsome but next time tell us right away if you are going to give away a big reveal a week early i mean come on not cool uncharted 3 game of the year 2011

  • @86 Finally I remember playing the ssx series on the ps2 n loved it I was talking to my bro discussing what games they should bring back to the ps3 and I brought up ssx well my dream of it finally coming to the ps3 has come true does anyone know if it will be a ps3 exclusive a new smuglers run and dark cloud where also discussed make those happen please sony

  • X-MEN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • For all you guys who feel upset/angry/cheated/violated by Sony because the reveal was Uncharted, don’t be, because Sony never promised anything.

    Sony sent invites to the gaming press and only the gaming press. It was them, not Sony, that hyped this up. That’s why it wasn’t announced on the PS Blog.

    And to those of you thinking that doesn’t make any sense because showing U3 today wasn’t a “reveal”, you’re wrong. The press are likely seeing gameplay, in which case, Sony are revealing the gameplay. Sony never said what specifically they were revealing. You all just assumed it was a brand new game nobody had ever heard of.

  • Guess it wont be I just checked on and most of them where on the original xbox as-well always thought this game was only on ps2 Ive never owned an xbox and have barley played it Sony is the only system besides Nintendo I will buy

  • I signed up for uncharted 3 updates at their site in my email how do i download the uncharted ps3 theme? does it come in an email?

  • is the DCUO beta coming out this week

  • Uncharted 3 was the reveal. Stop. Asking.
