FirstPlay Friday – week two

Submitted by on Friday, 16 April 20104 Comments

Well it’s finally here.  We’ve waited, gone through BETA tests and waited some more – now FirstPlay is upon us.

But is it worth your money?

Well that is where PS3 Attitude comes in.  Over the course of the next few weeks we will be doing a weekly rundown of the latest FirstPlay episode – so you can decide if it’s something that takes your fancy.

It will also give you the chance to see how the brand evolves over time as the FirstPlay team hit their stride.

For those who don’t know, FirstPlay is essentially an interactive magazine.  HD video previews and reviews are standard fare, as well as PSN and PlayStation Minis rundowns, lashings of upcoming games screenshots and of course, a downloadable treat or two – with voice over’s done by comedienne Lucy Porter.

You can buy a three month subscription for £8.99, or alternatively you can buy a single episode for 99p.

Each episode is broken down into several segments featuring various games/films – which we will cover here.

Featured Downloads

This week’s downloads are;

  • A PS3 FirstPlay theme
  • An exclusive parachute for Just Cause 2

D-Cube Planet

Network Highlights

New DLC roundup –

  • Borderlands The Secret Army of General Knoxx – a mini review.
  • Resident Evil 5 Lost in Nightmares/Desperate Escape – of course, you all know about this…don’t you?
  • Assassins Creed 2 Bonfire of the Vanities – quite a dull looking piece of DLC.

Top Ten FIFA goals –

A look at some of the best FIFA goals as scored by you guys.

Just Cause 2 Chaos –

A brief look at some user created videos, proving just how inventive (and sadistic!) you can be when you put your mind to it.

The pick of PSP –

  • Echoshift – mind bending time related puzzler.
  • SOCOM: U.S Navy SEALS Fireteam Bravo 3 – the game is probably shorter than the damn title!
  • The Eye of Judgement Legends – looks a bit boring without the PS Eye.

HD Reviews and Previews

  • Super Street Fighter IV review – looks absolutely epic, especially for Street Fighter fans.
  • Dead to Rights: Retribution preview – did that dog really tear that guys balls off?!  Sweet Jesus…
  • Split/Second: Velocity preview – Looking better each time we see it.
  • 2012 Blu-ray review – looks absolutely daft.
