PlayStation Blog recap
Yes, it’s time again to look back at the week that was. The main event? Surely news of your PlayStation Plus content for May. Hitman: Absolution, Catherine, Sine Mora, Velocity Ultra, Malicious… that’s as strong a line-up as the service has seen to date, in my book.
Elsewhere on the Blog, we revealed Jak & Daxter’s first full PS Vita appearance, welcomed Sega on to talk about their new version of classic Disney platformer Castle of Illusion, debuted a new Diggs Nightcrawler clip and unveiled the box art for Quantic Dream’s keenly anticipated blockbuster BEYOND: Two Souls.
We’ll have more on BEYOND next week, as well as the results of our recent PS Plus content poll and plenty more besides. See you on Monday!
