FirstPlay Thursday – week six
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.
This week’s downloads are:
- FirstPlay Kane and Lynch 2 theme
- Just Cause 2 parachute – just for a change
There’s still not much here this week, but according to this post on the EU blog, the next four episodes will each include a free minis title.
