Hello all. As usual, the weekly PlayStation Blog rollercoaster has slowed to a halt for a couple of days to allow us all to draw breath. What better time to look back at what’s gone down over the last seven days and catch up on some reading?
My favourite announcement of the week was without doubt news of Killzone Trilogy, impending for PS3. See the link below for details from Michiel at Guerrilla Games. Elsewhere, you got your first glimpse of The Hoard from LittleBigPlanet Karting, we shone the spotlight on some of the fabulous Sound Shapes community creations and headed behind the scenes at London Studio for a behind the scenes look at Wonderbook: Book of Spells.
Of course, that’s just a snapshot – see below for your full menu. While I have your attention, I’ll also take the opportunity to remind you that you can currently secure 25% off a 12 month PS Plus subscription. It’s well worth the cash – this month alone you’ll get free access to Red Dead Redemption, Machinarium, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World and Double Dragon Neon.
Oh, and do head on over to the Weekend Debate for your shot at snagging a Transformers: Fall of Cybertron download voucher.
Meet back here on Monday, yes?
