161w ago - Today Ro Hernandez of the PlayStation Store Team has unveiled details on their PlayStation Network 'Stock Up for Winter' sale to help gamers get prepped for the holidays.
To quote: With Thanksgiving and the winter break quickly approaching, it's time to escape the cold and curl up with some of your favorite PSN titles.
The PlayStation Network team is celebrating the holiday season with some great deals on PS3, PSP, and minis titles.
But you'll need to act quickly, as the PlayStation Network "Stock Up for Winter Sale" is only available for one week - November 23-29!
Headlining the Thanksgiving sale is highly acclaimed PlayStation exclusives, Joe Danger and Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker. Joe Danger, developed by the four-man studio Hello Games, released earlier this summer and is what IGN calls "one of the most polished, full-featured, and downright fun games available on the PS3."
Peace Walker brought the award-winning Kojima series to the PSP and had Joystiq calling it the "best game on Sony's handheld." These two games are only the start of the Thanksgiving sale, so be sure to check the other PS3, PSP, and minis titles while they're on sale beginning tomorrow!
168w ago - A few weeks ago PSP2 was confirmed by developers, and today according to VG247.com (linked above) a British source claims Sony's PSP2 handheld will be released during Holiday 2011.
To quote: "Developers and publishers have been told that PSP2 will release at the end of next year, a British source familiar with the matter has told VG247.
"We've been told it's coming in late 2011," said our man.
PSP2 is about as badly concealed as a games system can be. It's been common knowledge for much of this year that content is being made for the system, and that dev kits are in the wild. CPU and GPU specs have yet to be confirmed.
Sony has been obviously silent on the chatter, but has gone on the record to say there are "no plans" to include 3D. This tallies with what we've been told in the past month.
The machine has a forward-facing and backward-facing camera, and will come with both touch-screen and physical controls."
208w ago - Naughty Dog's Senior Manager of Marketing Communications Arne Meyer has announced today that starting tomorrow through December 27 Uncharted 2 players will receive double cash for all kills and medals.
To quote: The holidays are all about the giving spirit and we're in a giving mood!
We're holding another Uncharted 2: Among Thieves Double Cash weekend from Thursday, December 24, 2009, at 10:00 AM PST through Sunday, December 27, 2009, at 11:00 AM PST (what time is it in my city?) you would earn double for all kills and medals.
Yes, you read that right, you'll be getting Double Cash for medals as well!
Oh, and our characters have gotten into the spirit of the season to celebrate the occasion!
