To quote: I hope everyone has been enjoying our #PlayStationMemories promotion over the last few weeks.
Moving on from the joyous PS2 era, we now come to the current generation console - PlayStation 3. PS3 moved into a new world of high-definition gaming and online connectivity, where games looked like cut crystal and playing online with your friends became a norm for many.
PlayStation 3 has hosted countless popular franchise updates, such as new installments of Grand Theft Auto, Tekken and Metal Gear Solid to name a few, as well as brand new IP such as the Uncharted and Assassin's Creed series.
We also saw great new games thanks to the evolution of the digital space, such as the much lauded Journey, The Unfinished Swan, Braid and Limbo. And the system's future still looks bright, with the likes of Gran Turismo 6, Grand Theft Auto V, Beyond: Two Souls and Puppeteer still to come.
I remember getting my PS3 quite clearly, despite my original pre-order agonisingly falling through. I purchased Devil May Cry 4 before actually having the system, but Uncharted and Ninja Gaiden Sigma were thrown into the bundle...

43w ago - Sony Video Game Designer / Director David Jaffe invites fans to celebrate Twisted Metal's first PS3 birthday with a series-spanning sale today.
Below are the details, as follows: Hey all! I wanted to drop by to help celebrate the one-year anniversary of Twisted Metal for PS3!
"What?!?" I hear you say, "The game's already been out for a year?!?" Indeed it has! Crazy how time flies, huh?
Seems like only yesterday some of y'all were telling me I was an idiot for focusing the new game on three characters versus a larger cast like we did in the earlier TM games. Ah, good times, good times.
But seriously, on behalf of myself and the amazing Twisted Metal teams from Eat Sleep Play and Sony, please allow me to say thanks to all of the Twisted Metal fans who showed up to support this latest explosion of carnage and meaty gameplay.
While our online community is by no means the biggest in gaming, it's so exciting to see that it's very much alive and kicking. It's easy to find games, and new players are hitting the scene each and every week.
We've gone through a number of post-launch tuning passes,...
