11w ago - Sony Senior Community Specialist Kristine Steimer shared a PlayStation Plus February 2014 video game preview below today, as follows:

Typically when you think of February, your mind goes to chocolates, flowers, and other lovey-dovey things. So we thought we'd celebrate this sappy month by scaring the bejesus out of you with Outlast on PS4.

We also have some great single-player PS3 experiences, including Metro: Last Light, a first-person shooter with an interesting take on morality, and Remember Me, a third-person action adventure where you'll take down an evil corporation by beating lots of people up with your own unique combos and messing with people's memories.

If you have a significant other, you might be able to rope him or her into some bank-robbing action with Payday 2 on PS3. After all, everyone likes stealing stuff. I mean, uh nevermind.

Finally, two PS Vita titles are joining the Instant Game Collection: Street Fighter X Tekken and ModNation Racers: Road Trip. Both include functionality with their respective PS3 versions. Fight against your friends in Street Fighter X Tekken no matter what platform they have, or download your previously made PS3 creations and use them in ModNation Racers: Road Trip.

12w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Ryan Clements is here with the new PlayStation releases for the upcoming week today, as follows:

An iconic video game hero receives a herculean upgrade this week in the world of PlayStation. Legendary adventurer Lara Croft returns in Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition, which launches Tuesday on PS4.

Originally released on PS3 last year, this reboot showcased the breathtaking and brutal origin story of a gaming great. But the team at Crystal Dynamics wasn't satisfied with its already critically-acclaimed project.

The developers doubled back and addressed every detail, making huge technical overhauls to take advantage of PS4′s hardware. The result? A visually stunning adventure, all displayed in native 1080p and running at a silky smooth framerate.
