The PlayStation Recap — Homecoming Edition

After 11 or so days on the road, I’m finally back home in California — and burning to crack open every conceivable loot chest in Borderlands 2. So regrettably, I’m going to cut to the chase in this week’s Recap and get back to Gunzerking as fast as possible! If you’re playing Borderlands 2, be sure to share your character and strategies in the comments.

Read on for the week’s 10 most popular PlayStation.Blog posts. In other news highlights this week, fans lined up to get LittleBigPlanet for PS Vita at participating retailers (the North American PSN launch date is this Tuesday, 9/25), Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time got a release date of February 5th for PS3 and PS Vita (with Cross-Buy), Final Fantasy III was confirmed for a Tuesday PSN launch, Atlus USA announced a November 20th release for Persona 4 Golden on PS Vita, Puppeteer’s new trailer debuted at Tokyo Game Show, Inafune filed a Soul Sacrifice TGS update, the LittleBigPlanet team announced a new TV spot competition, DC Universe Online released the new expansion Hand of Fate, and the PlayStation On Campus Tour officially kicked off (get the most up-to-date schedule here). Phew! Not a bad week, all things considered.

What are you playing this weekend?

    • I really want a Vita now, will probably ask for one for Christmas. I am boycotting my PS3 until Tuesday for when the Uncharted 3 GOTY Edition comes out! I’m a huge Uncharted fan and buying the game for the third time will still make me happy!

      I would love a release of the Jak & Daxter Collection on the Vita, I would love to be able to play those games on a portable!

      • The new PS3 is ridiculously small compared to the launch models. It’s kind of shocking! Be sure to let us know what you think when you get it.

    • playing borderlands 2 as zer0. just got my first sniper rifle and am enjoying the critical hit bonuses i get. i do miss the bird attack from borderlands, but i am trying to take advantage of the stealth move.

    • So can’t wait for Dead or Alive 5 on Tuesday, pre-ordered the Collector’s Edition. And I manages to pre-order Resident Evil 6 for the following week at 20% off at with a temporary sale.

    • I’m watching:
      footage of Dead or Alive 5 on the internet
      I’m playing:
      Dead or Alive games in anticipation for DOA5 on Tuesday

    • Sorry for the “1,000” post, but any chance of DOA5 avatars/themes? I know there were some for Virtua Fighter 5: Final Showdown after its release?

    • looking forward to starhawk dlc

    • This has nothing to do but I wonder if you guys can show this to the people at Sony, wonderful trophy integration.

    • A good week for Playstation. PS Plus for Vita will be great! Such a great deal. LittleBigPlanet Vita is the best.

    • So how about them new characters for PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale?

    • That Madden 13 ad is only the most watched because its advertised on almost every video on YouTube. Unless they don’t count those.

      I was interested in getting another PS3 with the price drop, but now that I found out that it’s a top loaded disc drive like the old ps1/ps2’s, no thanks.

      I guess they don’t wanna lose any more money price dropping the old ps3. But maybe I’ll just track down one like I currently have. I prefer the disc drive.

      I’m Watching: Cops…..maor COPS!
      I’m reading: What I’m typing right now just to hear myself be paranoid.

      Wanna know how much I live my Vita? ….(kisses screen) ….that much…..but I luv mah PC better… haz stuffs….

    • @15 Undrey, how are you playing a demo of thieves in time demo? I checked both the ps3 and vita stores and couldn’t find it anywhere.
