New PS3 and PSN Releases for the Week of November 28, 2011
Sony Senior Social Media Specialist Rey Gutierrez is here with the new PS3 and PSN releases for the coming week today, as follows:
The Sly Collection arrives this week on PSN, where we give you the sweet option of downloading the amazing trilogy together, or each Sly game individually, all in stereoscopic 3D. Before the DragonZord and White TigerZord dominated afternoon television in the 90′s, there was Voltron in the 80′s.
This Mighty Morphing Power Rangers fan is envious of the Voltron game hitting PSN this week. Even more classics return to glory on PSone and PS2, and Modern Warfare 2 and De Blob 2 evolve into a full digital downloads.
Sly Cooper and the Thievius Raccoonus - Only one thing can make a thieving raccoon better at his job, and that's the long-lost Thievious Racoonus, a collected work of thieving knowledge.
Split into ten pieces, the writings are spread across the world, and it's up to one young raccoon, Sly Cooper, to track them all down. Angered security guards, searchlights, and lasers are just a few of the obstacles Sly will have to confront, but luckily he's got binoculars, swords, daggers, and all sorts of other fun stuff.
Sly 2: Band of Thieves - The sequel to Sly Cooper delivers the same crime detective style of presentation, borrowing heavily from movies, novels and comic books to create a beautiful, highly animated game. The story takes place two years after Sly Cooper and the Thievius Raccoonus.
In the first game, Sly was becoming a professional thief, but in Band of Thieves, he is a professional thief - so he retains all of the moves from the first game. He also earns new moves and gains different items to assist him in his dark craft.
The biggest upgrade comes in form of the new multi-character gameplay. Players might start a level as Sly, and then after completing a particular task, players switch to Bentley, and Murray, respectively.
Sly 3: Honor Among Thieves - The third edition of the innovative platformer series from Sucker Punch and SCE America. This time around, the cast of playable characters has been expanded even further to include Carmelita, a shaman from Australia who speaks in tongues, Dimitri, and some other characters that have yet to be revealed. Once again, the setup for each mission is with a series of events that need to be done within each large environment.
By looking through the binoculars or simply tapping the L3 button, arrows point out the current events available that are color-coded for each of the available characters.
If there's a blue arrow, it's for Sly, and Bentley and Murray have green and purple arrows, respectively. And once all of these events have been completed there is the grand heist-type event where the characters need to work together to pull off a grand plan that Bentley will have concocted.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 - Return to today's war front with the second chapter in the Modern Warfare series. Modern Warfare 2 continues the gripping and heart-racing action as players face off against a new threat dedicated to bringing the world to the brink of collapse. Playing as as Sgt.
Gary "Roach" Sanderson, your international squad of elite soldiers battle through harrowing combat scenarios that range from snowy mountaintops in Siberia to the crowded streets of Rio de Janiero, Brazil and beyond, facing a terrorist force hellbent on redefining the boundary lines of today's modern warfare.
Voltron: Defender of the Universe (Demo Available) - Voltron is returning to defend the universe in this video game based on the revival of the classic 1980s anime series. Voltron: Defender of the Universe combines classic Voltron animation and style with high definition graphics and audio that deliver high-impact, real-time single and multi-player gameplay with up to five players.
Relive the most defining moments from the classic series, including the discovery of the Lions and the very first time the Space Explorers form Voltron. Battle King Zarkon's evil forces and journey across the universe, exploring a variety of environments -- including planet Arus. It is up to you to restore justice and galactic peace. Get ready to activate interlock! Dynotherms connected! Infracells up! Mega thrusters are go! Let's go, Votron Force!
De Blob 2 - In de Blob 2, Comrade Black is back and so is his war on color. Disguised as Papa Blanc, Comrade Black rigs the city's election in order to win and take control of Prisma City with his brainwashing new cult. That is, until de Blob bounces back in full color-spreading force with his revolution to restore color and life back to the city and its residents.
Scene It? Movie Night - Scene It? Movie Night! offers a wide variety of media-rich trivia that provides movie fans and social gamers with a lively, competitive group gaming experience. Trivia content in the game includes recent hit movies as well as fan favorite Hollywood hits from four decades of films.
Single-player mode challenges player speed and entertainment trivia know-how, while multi-player mode creates a challenging social gameplay experience.
DARKSTALKERS: The Night Warriors - Choose from 10 horror-themed characters, including a Bigfoot, a vampire, and a werewolf. Every character has unique combinations and super moves, but be warned, as the arenas can have positive and negative effects on the fighters. Over 15,000 frames of gorgeous, hand-drawn animation bring the action to life.
After beating the computer-controlled contenders, challenge your friends in the Versus mode. If they fear your superior skills, feel free to handicap the match. DARK STALKERS: The Night Warriors will challenge your skills as you fight to become the ruler of the night.
Tak 2: Staff of Dreams - Join Tak in an epic adventure, as he must learn all new Juju magic to recover the Staff of Dreams and defeat Tlaloc once and for all. Tak's role in the great Prophecy of the Pupanunu people isn't over. Rather, it's just begun!
It's not easy being Jibolba's apprentice, and Tak's got the bruises to prove it. Now dabbling with new abilities, Tak is creating a little Juju magic of his own! He's even working on mastering the ancient Juju magic of animal-morphing.
I really DO wonder what person in sane state of mind would purchase a digital / DRM crippled copy of game at full RRP comparing to physical BD at fairly better price which could be later on traded on or shared / borrowed by friends etc??
It really goes beyond any comprehension why there is no any incentive / discount on digital copies (apart of the greedeness from the Sony's side) as it cost almost zero to produce and distribute comapring to physical BDs and there is no sharing of profits with distributors or too much employes to be paid so ALL the profit goes only to Sony ...
There are indeed situations where you'd prefer PSN version comparing to BD - we all know the benefits of games on hard drive, or simple you can't get hold of BD anymore or not at your location or simply some people don't mind being ripped off this way but still I'd NEVER ever purchase the PSN game over BD copy.
I would buy any game on the PSN over BR prior to November 17 (when game sharing was allotted to 4 systems). Some friends and I would and pitch in 25% and buy the game. We would have forever and on HD. As an example, $60 game would cost us $15.00.
Still not bad for new releases if you go in half with someone... $60 game for $30. In fact, all of our purchases were shared between 4 users (plus membership, netflix, hulu, qriocity).
well in au spn store shop psn games like fifa 12, bf3 driver san fran etc are $109 au.. LOL
they are at most $80 in physical shops for top a list titles at release and $50 on the net at release for pal from uk inc shipping.. its should be alot cheaper for a game with no shipping fees, no shop gouging the price and cost of packaging etc but no, psn is dearer for a dig copy... stupid sony logic i guess eh..
