The PlayStation Recap – Summer Doldrums Edition

59 6

Despite the slower pace of summer, it’s been an suspiciously robust time for PlayStation news and updates. This week saw the launch of the SOCOM Mobile HQ for Android phones, the wide PSN release of the UNCHARTED 3 Multiplayer Beta, an extension for registration into the “AllClear ID Plus” service to July 31st, a July 21st release date for the charming PlayStation Home shoot-’em-up Scribble Shooter, a major patch for PixelJunk Shooter 2 that enables you to save your progress mid-stage (Jeff is doubtlessly pleased!), the PSN launch of PlayStation Move Ape Escape, and a jaw-dropping 15-minute gameplay demo for BioShock Infinite.
