Just weeks away from E3 and we’re entering heavy travel season, starting with this week’s trip to Toronto, Ontario, Canada — the site of our indie-themed
community meetup this past Tuesday. Jeff, Rey and I had a blast talking with Toronto Blog readers and we even traded blows in some ferocious ad-hoc matches of Mortal Kombat on PS Vita. If you made the trip, thanks for coming! If not, hopefully you’ll be able to join us next time.
In other news, this week saw the release of
two new dev diaries for PS Move spellbinder Sorcery ( and Papo & Yo, too), first details and video for the Hitman: Absolution Sniper Challenge PSN game, word of a Ghostbusters gear invading PS Vita brawler Reality Fighters, a two-year anniversary for ModNation Racers, the PSN release of the long-awaited Move mystery Datura, and a sneak preview of the next issue of PlayStation: The Official Magazine.
