Posted 9 July
Well, that was a quiet week. The summer months between E3 and gamescom can be a bit slow on gaming news as release schedules slow, publishers hold back big announcements for Cologne and lots of people simply go on holiday. I’ve been using the time to take a look at the PlayStation.Blog EU with fresh eyes and have started work on some new feature ideas that, I hope, will bring more colour to these pages. We’ll be starting (hopefully!) next week with The Weekend Debate. Those who have been reading a while might remember The Friday Debate and this is very similar, just with one cool difference – the most insightful and entertaining comments around the topic will be rewarded with a voucher code for one of the latest and best games on PlayStation Store.
I love to listen to your feedback and ideas so keep them coming here in the comments. If you ran this blog, what kinds of things would you write about?
