InFamous 2 Releases Today; Kevin Butler says it’s “EPIC”

Today, one of Sony’s most anticipated titles of the year releases. InFamous 2. I enjoyed the first title myself, and with the upgraded visuals and new features and powers available in this one, you can’t really go wrong with it. Anyone picking this one up? Given my current situation, my best bet for now would be renting it from GameFly, though.

Anyway, be sure to see what Kevin Butler, the VP of Heroic Actions, has to say about the game in the newly released InFamous 2 ad.

PSP Games Coming to PS3 with HD Visuals and Extra Content

Sony has announced a new initiative where select PSP titles will be ported to the PS3 with improvements (think dual analog sticks) to each game. They are calling this movement Playstation Portable Remaster Series.

All games will display HD graphics but some games will have 3D support, new exclusive content, control pad support and more!

Game saves will still be interchangeable between the PSP and PS3.

To get an idea what we are to expect, check out the Monster Hunter Portable 3rd up above.

Edit: Rumors are flying around that the HD versions of these PSP games will be compatible with the NGP which makes sense. Lots to look forward to!


New to PS3 – Week of 4-12-11

Last week we had nothing in terms of retail, and this week is just about the same. We have “The Michael Jackson Experience” and “Rio”. Both family friendly, and great for kids. Rio is only $29.99, so why not spoil the kids with that price tag. The Portal 2 strategy guide will also be available Tuesday, so if you’re the type of person who likes to plan ahead, by all means, pick it up for $19.99. The MJ game is $49.99, which isn’t too bad. I can see it being a collectors item down the line for sure. Shame they wont re-do moonwalker, as that was, at the very least, a fun game.

You know you want this! Still not sold?

In the end, we have Dungeon Hunters on PSN, so all is not lost. I believe a Game Night was mentioned by Oly, so if you haven’t, join the Game Night group HERE


New To PS3 Week of 3-29-11

Dynasty Warriors 7 by Tecmo Koei – $59.99

Dynasty Warriors is looking to get a true next gen installment with DW7. Multiplayer returns, along side co-op, in this hack and slash brawl that tries to fit as many enemies on-screen as possible.

WWE All-Stars by THQ – $59.99

Think NBA Jam, but with wrestling. Demo is available on PSN if you’re really still interested. I found the demo boring and the gameplay lacking, though.

Tiger Woods PGA Tour 12: The Masters Collector’s Edition by Electronic Arts – $69.99 with the Regular edition going for $59.99

The masters is here, along with new golfers and new courses. Move compatible.

Shift 2 Unleashed Limited Edition by Electronic Arts – $59.99 Limited Edition

It is arcade racing at its best. If you like unrealistic racing games, this is for you. GT5 fans need not apply.

Nascar 2011 The Game by Activision – $59.99

He is making a left turn! Wait, another left turn! Maybe this will capture the old feel of Daytona, USA?

PSN is also getting the Free Realms MMO totally free. We can expect Moon Diver as well, as stated in a previous post. Good week all in all.
