The Weekly Recap (September 26th – October 2nd)


[tab:This Week]

Told ya I would get this on here tonight! As for this week’s highlights, there were even more boxset rumors announced, including a Tom Clancy collection and Rayman. There has also been more talk about RDR DLC, as well as the Marshalls being unlocked for multiplayer, the PSN store’s revenues were really high for the month of August, and Uncharted 2 Game of the Year edition has been announced as well.

There are a couple commentary posts by EdEN and Ferginator88. You can check out a video of Guerilla Games talking about Move controls in Killzone 3, as well as a few new trailers, including a long one for the upcoming Castlevania game (it also appears we accidentally posted it twice). We also have a few reviews and impressions posts. Ceidz gave us his impressions on Netflix in Canada, Eddie reviews Space Invaders: Infinity Gene, mairondil reviewed Racquet Sports for the Move and Trev reviewed FIFA 11.

Also, be sure to check out the trailers and video section for videos of a few games, including Call of Duty: Black Ops and more LBP2 Beta videos. Now, hopefully I can keep up with getting these up on Saturday nights again!



[tab:Community News]

Just a heads up, if you live in the San Francisco area, we would love to get you to write for us! Since we’re a smaller community, and based all over the place, we are unable to go to a lot of the events we are often invited to (and many of them are in that area). If you would like to write, it would be great! Plus, you can get into these events for us as well!

This month is also PS3Blog’s Halloween Month. Tosh has invited people to make custom Halloween-themed versions of the top banner that he will change out every other day.

In case you missed it, our big Move giveaway has finished, and the winners were announced (we also had double points leading up to the end of the contest for a couple days). The winners are as follows:

  1. Adam T
  2. Skott
  3. jeliminy
  4. Emrah
  5. Televided-God
  6. UbeRamza

Congratulations to the six of you!

As I said, if you have any ideas, please let us know! I’m going to try to get more serious on getting people to help set some of these up, maybe even try to do a different game scheduled every night or something. GT5 Race Days/Nights are definitely planned, though.

[tab:Thank You]
Thanks for taking the time to read a second recap in one day. Trust me, I would have had last week’s up earlier if I had known I hadn’t posted it yet! Check back again next week and see if you might have missed out on anything important!

PS3 Rockband Keyboard Bundle Won’t be Sold in the USA

Harmonix have recently stated that due to “the agreement terms for the region,” the PS3 keyboard bundle will not be available in the US, thought he same keyboard will be available seperately on the PS3. The 360 and Wii however will get the $130 bundle.

This essentially means that PS3 buys will be charged $10 more then 360 and Wii consumers for the same product.

There is no info as to what the agreement actually entailed.
