The PlayStation Recap – PAX 2011 Edition

35 4

The Penny Arcade Expo is in full swing in Seattle — and Deus Ex: Human Revolution is calling to me — so I’ll be keeping this week’s missive short. Though the week was dominated by a sneak peek at PlayStation Home’s upcoming revamp and the UNCHARTED 3 Collector’s Edition unboxing starring Nolan North, the week was marked by a flurry of smaller news and announcements. Community voting opened up for The Tester: Season 3, Sega announced that Virtua Fighter 5: Final Showdown will debut on PSN next summer, and the Starhawk team revealed its plans for PAX.

If you’re enjoying PAX this weekend, be sure to try out Closure, Retro/Grade, and other upcoming PSN games that you’ll be able to play months before their PlayStation Network release. And check out our full guide to the PAX freebies you’ll find at the PlayStation booth.
