The Weekly Recap (August 8th-14th)



[tab:This Week]

Alright, part 2 of the lost recaps! Highlights this week are talk of betas for both Killzone 3 and LittleBigPlanet 2, Android OS possibly making its way onto a future PSP, PS3′s official launch in Brazil, sales for the month of July and info on new Borderlands DLC.

There is also some new screens for DiRT 3, BioShock: Infinite was announced, Virtual Air Guitar Company showed off its newest trailer for Kung-Fu Live, and finally, a few random articles, including a picture of RDR and Toy Story mashed up. There is also a large collection of QuickNews articles last week as well, so be sure to check those, too. One more recap to go, which will go up either tonight or tomorrow morning, seeing as the week isn’t quite over yet.

Well, to start, I let you guys know that I was heading to LA last Sunday. I wanted you guys to ask me questions I could ask THQ, but didn’t get much of a response. I’m still open on questions, though, and I can still send them some.

To make it easier to share stuff on the site, and help promote it, Tosh added some new share icons to the bottoms of the posts. With that, and Luke and I stepping up Twitter and FaceBook, respectively, we’ve been getting a bit more traffic!

There were a few contests going on, such as Oly’s Mafia II t-shirt giveaway and the usual Chat giveaways we get every once in a while, but those are now finished and the winners will be on the recap for this week.

There was also the giveaway for the Red Dead Redemption game nights. LOKO117 and Dgoransson both won prizes, good job guys!

Nothing is currently planned (well, what I have planned will be acknowledged on the next recap, but other than that, nothing).

[tab:Poll Results]

Current poll, which will end later today, asks whether you subscribed to PS+ or not, so get your votes in before it’s too late!

[tab:Thank You]

Thanks again for waiting for these. One more to go (which is for this week) and I will be all caught up finally!
