The PlayStation Recap — The Dark Knight Rises Edition

Though I’m away on vacation for most of this week, like many of you I’ll be heading out this weekend to watch Christopher Nolan’s latest superhero epic. It’s been a big week for PlayStation news, too: in addition to the top 10 stories below, this week saw confirmed release dates for two new PS Vita games (Puddle and Foosball 2012), an update on the PS3-exclusive RPG Tales of Xillia, news of a PS3 and PSP launch for Wizorb, the announcement of Beck tracks for Sound Shapes, Comic-Con panel highlights for PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale and PSN gem The Unfinished Swan, news of a new low price for MLB 12 The Show on PS3 and PS Vita, a GT Academy Silverstone update, and a cute character-design contest for the upcoming PS3 and PS Vita arcade game When Vikings Attack!

What are you playing this weekend?
