The PlayStation Blog recap
Phew, what a week that was. Unless you’ve just emerged into the daylight after a fortnight’s spelunking holiday, you no doubt will have caught our PlayStation 4 announcement. There’s a huge amount of information to digest, so now’s the time to catch up on anything you might have missed – take a look at the full reading list below. And remember, if you haven’t watched the event yet, you can still do so right here.
