The Weekly Recap (may 9th-15th)



[tab:This Week]
Well, going back, I only had to go to Page 2. Definitely a slow week for reported news, but we more than made up for it with lots of discussion, with a handful of topics receiving more than 10 comments a piece. In total, there were 15 topics (not counting weekly posts and community news, of course) and 7 QuickNews, in which Sakinah dominated that.

As far as the story highlights. probably the biggest one would have to be LittleBigPlanet2′s trailer. From the looks of it, the game is going to be plain ridiculous, but really awesome, and give users what sounds like a true GAME creation platform, rather than a platformer with level creation. With that, it will be far interesting to see what people will come up with that one. Nice thing is, all current LBP levels (over 2 million) will be compatible with LBP2. The other big drop? Probably the last post for this week, OXM’s Black Ops preview. From what I read, it will be adding quite a bit to the game (ability to fly helicopters?! Awesome.) It should add more variety than what MW2 bright to the table.

Darrin also has a couple opinion articles, including his take on 3D Active Shutter glasses (which I agree with, for the most part) and his take on games being too long and too difficult. He also posted up April’s sales data, with the PS3 being, once again, the only console to have a year-over-year increase (that’s 9 straight months now).

Other news bites are around as well, including Sony’s annual financial results (and PS3 officially being at around 35.7 million consoles as of March), and the E3 teaser site possibly teasing an upcoming technology. Be sure to check the rest out, because there’s still a few more posts you might find interesting.



[tab:Community News]

Like I said before, there was a lot of discussion in the few posts we did have, including some debate between a handful of us (Royalty, Eddie, EdEN and I did most of that :P). Anyway, if you haven’t heard yet, there is a Giveaway going on, and this one is receiving a lot of entries, so if you haven’t done so yet, be sure to get yours in, as there is only 1 week left for entries.

As for a few site modifications and features, the friend request/add feature has been modified, by way of making it so when the person accepts the friend request, both parties will get their points instead of friend requests that are simply sent out receive points, despite acceptance of a friend request or not. You can also check out the Sidebar in the Community, which now has some new additions instead of being blank. One of these features is the last 30 active members and their avatars showing up in a list. Speaking of active members, here’s the recognitions this week:

Nothing planned as of yet, but with the release of Red Dead Redemption this week, we’re expecting to start having some posses roaming the wilderness, so keep an eye out for that!
[tab:Poll Results]

Current poll, which will run until next weekend, is asking whether or not Kevin Butler should make an appearance at E3 and so far, “Yes” is just dominating that.
[tab:Thank You]
Yeah, very slow week, but at least discussion was more lively than usual! Next week, that Giveaway ends, and in a couple weeks, we’ll see if I win that E3 contest, so PS3Blog will be there first hand! Here’s my entry in case you’re interested in seeing it:
