The PlayStation Recap – What We’re Reading

Your friendly neighborhood social media team is all moved in at PlayStation’s new HQ, but aside from a nicer view it’s business as usual at PS.Blog. Plenty of news and inside looks this week, along with a strong showing from the weekly PSN update. If you haven’t listened to this week’s Blogcast yet, tune in for a preview of the month’s PlayStation Plus content (and for a really awkward conversation about my apparent obsession with PaRappa).

If you’re itching to try out Insomniac’s latest, Fuse, it’s getting a demo on PS3 this Tuesday, and don’t miss the new details on Wonderbook’s upcoming noir mystery Diggs Nightcrawler. Oh, and how about those new GTA V trailers? September 17th can’t come soon enough.

On the “behind the scenes” front, don’t miss the Watch_Dogs PS4 dev diary, and the insights into the development of the terrifying Fatal Frame and its sequel.

What are you playing this weekend?

  • I’m playing: Poker Night 2, Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon
  • I’m watching: Trigun, Code Geass (that’s right, MakoSOLIDER)

  • I hope Fatal Frame 3 comes to PSN, that’s the one PS2 FF i have not played.

    • Justin Massongill

      Secret shame: I’ve never played any of them. Thinking about diving into the original now that it’s on PSN.

  • You should have titled this post

    “What We Refuse To Read To Improve Playstation”

    and the only thing in the post should be

    Dear Sony, Please Fix The Playstation Store

    -IGN article, written by Colin Moriarty.

    Get your act together

  • My previous comment’s awaiting moderation, but I have to add something anyway….

    I’m playing: Soul Sacrifice, Soul Sacrifice, Soul Sacrifice, Soul Sacrifice, GTA IV, Soul Sacrifice, Fatal Frame (oh yeah, and Soul Sacrifice too)

    I’m watching: The Office, Parks and Recreation Toonami

    I’m reading: Soul Sacrifice lore (the monsters and locations in the game have some really interesting backstories)

    I’m listening to: PlayStation Blogcast ep. 072

  • @IzoGray I’m sure they’ve read or at least heard about the article. Besides changes don’t happen overnight (well most of the time anyway).

  • I’m well aware that things don’t change overnight..Only an idiot would assume that someone can properly code and design an entire store overnight.

    You would think that Sony is capable of learning from it’s mistakes like any child is capable of. Sony’s mistake in this instance would be lack of communication, no foresight, and in case I forget, lack of communication.

    • Justin Massongill

      The recent update to the PS Store on PS3 has made it run a lot snappier for me, and a lot of others I’ve spoken to. Not the case for you? They’re always working to make it better.

      How would you like to see us change, in terms of communication?

  • I’m Playing: Ratchet & Clank HD
    I’m Watching: Darker than Black (Anime)
    I’m Reading: All sorts of studying for finals

    @Justin LOL, how r u liking it? Do watch in subs or dubs btw, just curious?

    • Justin Massongill

      First episode didn’t really grab me, but I can see the potential. I’ll savor this one, like a fine wine, since it looks like there isn’t a whole lot of it.

      Watching it subbed. Trigun and Cowboy Bebop are the only ones I’ve seen where the English dub is just as good as the subbed version, so I tend to skew toward the native language on new shows.

  • Removing the random lag spikes alone, would make me enjoy the store more.

    Besides that though, the download list REALLY needs some search options.

  • Playing: Soul Sacrifice, Resistance 3
    Watching: Bewitched, almost done with Season 2.
    Listening: Ashanti ~ ‘Baby’
    Reading: Ratchet and Clank (comic book)

  • How and where is the new HQ by the way?

    • Justin Massongill

      It’s great! Lots of windows means tons of natural light, and it’s walking distance to a Chipotle. What more could one ask for?


  • Tetris discount please, like European Store.

    @Justin, I saw that you’re watching code geass, if you like it and like time travel, I suggest you watch Steins;Gate it’s amazing.

    • Justin Massongill

      Hi. :)

      MakoSOLIDER up above has been bugging me to watch Steins;Gate as well; I’ll give it a shot once I get a bit further into Geass.

  • Sale is almost over and I still can’t get MGS1 as PSN refuses to put it up for the Vita without a proper reason. I highly doubt it’s a licensing issue, and definitely not a compatibility issue.

  • @Archaga Here’s a suggestion, if you purchase MGS1 from the online web PS store, I believe it should show up in your download list on your vita, and then you can download it from there.

  • Code Geass is hella dope.

  • when is the playstation store going to be working

    it honestly, takes longer now for Morgan to push out a monthly update than weekly ones. I don’t like the monthly updates… It’s nice to see whats all coming for plus for the month but it’s a drag, last time I don’t think he even got to push out the update on time for April. I think it was the day of the release he pushed out the month and week. Or is that how it is now? That would of been a nice heads up if that’s how it is.

    • Justin Massongill

      We run the Plus updates on Mondays; so the first Monday of the month (today) is when we run the monthly preview.
