Sony has set a release date for the first batch of updates to convert existing games into stereoscopic 3D. On June 10, updates for Wipeout HD, Star Super Stardust HD and Mr. Pain will be available on the PSN.

Originally released in 2007 for the Xbox 360, Lost Planet was generally well received. A year later, PS3 owners were able to see what the fuss was all about. For the most part, it was a faithful but flawed port.
Lost Planet 2 has all the features of a great game. There’s four-player co-op, improved competitive multiplayer modes, better graphics, tons of unlockables, the ability to customize your character, and boss battles of epic proportions.

There’s only one thing to do; throw yourself in the mix, drink quickly and hopefully figure out what the hell everyone is on about.
Thankfully, arriving late to the PS3 party isn’t quite so much of a struggle, thanks to the platinum (read: greatest hits) range. This selection of classics separates the wheat from the chaff, making it easier for you to know what is essential.
