I'm personally very excited about the hero title for next month - EA's RPG adventure Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning.
From the genius creative minds of bestselling author R.A. Salvatore, Spawn creator Todd McFarlane, and Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion lead designer Ken Rolston, Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning follows the story of a resurrected hero known as the "Fateless One", who embarks on a quest to discover the secrets behind his own fate. Sounds pretty epic right?
Moving swiftly on, if you missed it in the Knights and Witches Sale blog I am very happy to confirm that as of 29th May, Plus subscribers can also download ICO and Shadow of the Colossus HD, both developed by our very own Japan Studio.

34w ago - Sony Associate Producer Victor Harris announced today that Jak and Daxter Collection goes portable on PS Vita this June.
Below are the details, as follows: In February 2012, Naughty Dog's beloved Jak and Daxter franchise got a faithful HD remake on PS3 in the form of Jak and Daxter Collection, satiating series fans and introducing newcomers to the duo.
This June, we're expanding the collection to the portable audience. Jak and Daxter Collection (comprised of three of Jak and Daxter's legendary adventures - Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy, Jak II, and Jak 3) is coming to PS Vita for just $29.99.
The power of PS Vita means Jak and Daxter Collection will feature authentically reproduced graphics from the original games. Longtime fans will instantly feel at home, and new players will experience the world of Jak and Daxter for the first time, along with new touch-based applications of certain mini games throughout the collection.
Jak and Daxter Collection on PS Vita has full Trophy support, but fear not Trophy hunters - the list isn't shared with the PS3 version, so go for the Platinum!
We've been hard at work on this addition to the Jak and Daxter lineage, and we can't wait to hear your hover board triumph stories as well as your trials and tribulations...
