171w ago - FirstPlay Associate Editor Nathan Ditum has posted up a preview today of FirstPlay Episode 22 for Sony's PlayStation 3 entertainment system.
To quote: Having briefly considered mounting a campaign to abolish Mondays and have three-day weekends forever, I'm back in work after the bank holiday to tell you about the next episode of FirstPlay.
Episode 22 is up on the Store from Wednesday, and this week features an all-new hands-on with LittleBigPlanet 2, the second part of our big PlayStation Move playtest, and a preview of Ubisoft's under-the-radar strategy contender, RUSE. Oh, and a chat with Sony Computer Entertainment Europe president Andrew House.
On top of that we've got an online review of our surprise summer favourite, Singularity, a round-up of PS one classics, and a look at the best fighting games available from PlayStation Store. And to round everything off we've got screenshot galleries of FIFA 11, Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions, new Bond title 007 Blood Stone and the twisted fairytale, Alice: The Madness Returns.
All of which gives you over half an hour's worth of HD games coverage and info for just 99p, or as low as 75p if you take out a 90-day subscription for £8.99. See the Future of PS3. First.

And if you like the look of the game, celebrate by installing the free theme in this week's downloads section. You'll have to do the lightsaber noise yourself, though.

We also compare Gran Turismo 5's graphics with the real world. The real world loses.
