The PlayStation Recap – Doomsday Edition

40 17

The big news this week – if you couldn’t tell by the massive artwork sprawled across the PlayStation.Blog homepage – was the eagerly anticipated launch of Insomniac Games’ moody shooter Resistance 3. The addictive pacing, seductive weapons, tense action, and grim atmosphere have propelled me through the campaign with laser focus – a rarity, as I’m easily distractible. Did you pick up Resistance 3 this week? Which version did you get? What do you think so far?

The week also saw news of the Chimeran invasion in PlayStation Home, details on God of War: Origins Collection’s Blu-ray bonuses, and a first look at new PSN combat racer Skydrift. Oh, and an update on From Dust, which will now hit PSN this Tuesday, September 13th. That’s two weeks earlier than expected!
