29w ago - Sony Senior Social Media Specialist Rey Gutierrez is here with the new PS3 and PSN releases for the upcoming week today, as follows:
On PS3 this week, it's a time of civil unrest and political upheaval in the Americas. As a Native American assassin fights to protect his land and his people, he will ignite the flames of a young nation's revolution.
Assassin's Creed III takes you back to the American Revolutionary War, but not the one you've read about in history books. On PS Move, Sports Champions 2 revives favorite features, including the surprisingly deep and challenging single-player Cup Play and the customizable Free Play mode, plus fun arcade Challenge rounds for each event.
On PS Vita and PSN, you're a cunning new assassin - Aveline, an assassin of mixed French and African heritage. You must use your skill, instinct and weaponry - including a machete, poison-dart blowpipe, and duelling pistols, to hunt down and eliminate your enemies in Assassin's Creed III: Liberation.
Also on PS Vita, Need for Speed: Most Wanted is the 19th release in the long-running Need for Speed franchise, and the first for the PlayStation Vita. It hearkens back to the earliest games in the series as players compete in races with police unified against them. Enjoy this week's The Drop.
30w ago - Insomniac Games Senior Community Manager James Stevenson has confirmed today that Ratchet & Clank: Full Frontal Assault will officially be out this November 27th for $19.99.
To quote: The 10th Anniversary of Ratchet & Clank is coming up next month, and it's been a lot of fun this year reliving the memories from our original PS2 games in the recently released Ratchet & Clank Collection.
We also had a blast playing the beta of Ratchet & Clank: Full Frontal Assault with all of you earlier this fall. Since then, we've gotten a flood of e-mails, tweets and Facebook posts asking when you can get back to exploring the battlefield and defending your base in FFA.
We're happy to announce Ratchet & Clank: Full Frontal Assault will be available on November 27th on the PlayStation Store and at retail.
That's right, you asked and we listened: Full Frontal Assault will be available as a retail copy for those of you who love physical copies of your games! Both the download and retail versions support cross-buy as well, so your purchase gets you both the game on PS3 and a digital copy for PlayStation Vita.
The other big question we've gotten a lot is "How much will the game cost?" As you know, Full Frontal Assault is a "fun-size" project that's similar in scope to Ratchet &...
