Sony just dropped a bomb on the Japanese stage, not a single PlayStation Phone but a PlayStation Phone experience for everybody.

The company unveiled a cross-platform software framework called PlayStation Suite, which sounds rather boring in those words, but what it amounts to is an official PlayStation Store filled with games for your Android tablets and cellphones.

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...
