The PlayStation Recap — Prelude to a Gamescom Edition

Tomorrow, Jeff and I hop on a plane and make for Cologne, Germany, the site of Gamescom 2012, the largest and most celebrated European gaming event. Though Gamescom is often considered the European equivalent of E3, there’s sure to be news that will interest North American gamers. Fortunately, we’re working out the logistics for hosting a livestream of the PlayStation Gamescom press conference right here on PlayStation.Blog starting Tuesday morning. Set your calendar reminders for 8am Pacific Time Tuesday, just to be safe. We’ll see you right here!

Looking back, this was a big, big week for PlayStation news. LittleBigPlanet Karting confirmed a November 6th release date with a new trailer, The Walking Dead – Episode Two soared to the top of PSN’s July 2012 sales charts, Starhawk released a massive new update featuring two new maps set on the lush planet of Cypress, the much-discussed musical platformer Sound Shapes hit PS3 and PS Vita with a dazzling launch trailer in tow, the creator of PSN’s exclusive Retro/Grade explained how to play a reverse shooter (with a guitar controller, no less), Zen Studios confirmed a September 4th release for Zen Pinball 2 on PS3 and PS Vita, Papo & Yo released a live-action launch trailer, gorgeous 2D fighter Persona 4 Arena landed on PS3, fan-favorite PSN shooter Super Stardust HD celebrated a five-year anniversary with a money-saving discount, PlayStation Home revealed its latest and greatest content lineup, Sports Champions 2 released in-depth details on its much-evolved Archery mode, and PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale launched a strategy series detailing the finer points of Kratos, Sweet Tooth, Parappa, Fat Princess, and Sly Cooper.
