The PlayStation Recap

21 11

I’ve spent much of the week catching up on my PSN backlog, particularly Spring Fever titles like Slam Bolt Scrappers and Moon Diver, plus a few quick rounds with the SOCOM 4 multiplayer beta…which, coincidentally, is scheduled to publish to all PSN users this week.

In other news, this week saw the launch of the PlayStation.Blog en Español, run by our friend Lorenzo Grajales. Lorenzo’s been working to set up the PlayStation.Blog en Español as a great choice for Latin American gamers, or those who prefer to speak and read in Spanish. Let us know what you think!
