The PlayStation Blog recap
Man, what a week! We started with a bang on Monday with news of February’s massive PS Plus update; followed that up on Tuesday with great news for all of you awaiting Soul Sacrifice; then there were eye-popping new PS Vita trailers from the supremely talented Killzone: Mercenary and Tearaway teams; and then we capped things off on Friday with a mean and moody new live action God of War clip.
Oh, and there was the not-entirely-inconsequential matter of PlayStation Meeting 2013
I can’t promise we’ll maintain that sort of pace next week, but we’ll do our best. We’re hoping to deliver news of a PS Vita sale, as well as more on Killzone and Tearaway, and a little Sly Cooper update too. See y’all on Monday!
