Twitter Weekly Digest for 2009-05-17

Submitted by on Sunday, 17 May 2009One Comment

PS3 Attitude on TwitterAnother week of PS3 Attitude a-Twittering but what a week!

Tuesday saw the inaugural edition of #psfreeattitude where we gave away some free swag … and then promised to do it again next Tuesday. And every Tuesday forever more (or at least until we run out of free stuff to give away).

This week we also talked about Eidos Montreal’s big Thief 4 announcement, the inFamous demo and – the topic that just won’t die – netbooks, and which one is the king.

The end of the week also saw us announce yet another awesome charity auction with a one in a million twenty customised Call of Juarez iPod Shuffle up for grabs. Bidding is still open by the way …

  • @thesixthaxis [br] MW2 has dropped the COD moniker so I assume Vietnam is back to being 6? in reply to thesixthaxis #
  • @cc_starr [br] Indeed. W@W drops the numbering but is recognised as 5. As for MW2 bringing back the COD title, not that we’re aware of. in reply to cc_starr #
  • @nickchester [br] I’d be very surprised if it’s MGS related. Now just seems the right time for the man to _finally_ do something different. in reply to nickchester #

  • @Phil_Dawson [br] Agreed. Adding in the fact that it looks cheap and has poor aesthetics; along with Sony’s statement – I’m going with hoax #
  • @DaveyJam [br] Everyone is jumping on my keys! @richard4481 got there first and, anyway, I just checked and it’s tied to my account. Sorry! #
  • @Ducer15 [br] Who are you and why are you spamming us? πŸ˜‰ in reply to Ducer15 #
  • @DarthMazza [br] ‘Fraid I can’t DarthMazza. The beta is linked to my personal online account. Check out next Tuesday for some free stuff tho in reply to DarthMazza #
  • To all that applied, we’re announcing the short-list soon. If you haven’t applied yet, there’s still time – #
