163w ago - Sony Associate Editor Nathan Ditum has shared a preview of FirstPlay Episode 29 today, which hits PlayStation Store on Wednesday of this week.
To quote: This week I fell over playing football and hit my head on a brick, which, it turns out, meant I had to spend ages lying down and playing the LittleBigPlanet 2 beta. What's that, boss? No, still not quite better...
That's a true story, by the way, and absolutely the thing I'll be blaming my regular typos on this week. The good news is that it also means episode 29 of FirstPlay, out on the Store this Wednesday, features an in-depth look at what the insanely talented LittleBigPlanet community have been making with the tools from the upcoming sequel.
We've also got one last look at the awesomely frantic sci-fi shooter Vanquish before it's released this Friday, plus a review of the PS3-exclusive HD update of classic shooter Medal Of Honor: Frontline, which comes packaged with the new game's Limited Edition, and a review of Robin Hood on Blu-ray.
And there's more - reviews of Lara Croft And The Guardian Of Light and Worms 2: Armageddon, plus a look at the latest downloadable comics, and a new feature in which two members of the team clash...
166w ago - Sony's Associate Editor Nathan Ditum has shared a preview of FirstPlay Episode 26 today, which arrives on PSN this Wednesday for subscribers.
To quote: I've spent a hazardous (certainly to my marriage) amount of time this week hammering Castlevania: Lords of Shadow, which is three things: huge, amazing, and not reviewed in FirstPlay until next week, so I'll shut up about it now.
So what is in episode 26 of FirstPlay, available on the Store from this Wednesday? We've got some more Top Gun gear for PlayStation Home - Goose helmet, kids - and another chance to grab our exclusive Joe Danger PSN avatar.
We also have two huge reviews, with in-depth HD verdicts on EA's footballing juggernaut FIFA 11 and Codemasters' beautiful F1 2010, as well as a look at pec-tastic blockbuster Prince Of Persia on Blu-ray.
And there's loads more, including a countdown of the top ten PlayStation games of all time, as voted by Official PlayStation Magazine readers to celebrate the magazine's 50th issue, and a personal take on why MLB The Show is the best sports game on PS3 from the mag's editor Ben Wilson (apparently not because he's rubbish at FIFA. I know, I was surprised too).
We've also got a review of PixelJunk Racers: 2nd Lap, a look at the latest movies...
169w ago - Sony's PlayStation Network Executive Producer Kevin Furuichi has shared a preview video of Pulse 9/7 today, which arrives on PSN tomorrow.

From the Video Store, we have features on Killers, MacGruber, and more and give you a little preview of the Fall TV Sale.

178w ago - Senior Social Media Specialist Sid Shuman has shared a video today from E3 2010 previewing Two Worlds II for Sony's PS3 entertainment system.
To quote: Fans of epic open-world RPGs like The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion and Fallout 3 will want to keep their eyes peeled for Two Worlds II, an upcoming fantasy RPG that's headed to the PS3 this fall from developer Reality Pump.
I sat in on a demonstration at E3 to learn more about the game, but before I start yammering away, check out the trailer below to get a sense of the universe and visual style.
Set in a massive open world teeming with animal life, Two Worlds II is an RPG that's intensely focused on player freedom. You won't find rigid character classes like "Barbarian" or "Thief."
Instead, you'll build a custom class by assigning skill points across a wide range of talents: assassination, melee combat, trade, lockpicking, and magic to name just a few. Want to combine the spell-casting acumen of a Wizard with the brute melee force of a Warrior? No problem: just assign your skill and stat points accordingly.
