I’m getting ever so slightly bored of saying this now, but this week DolphGB has been playing The Last of Us and MitchJay92 has been playing Persona. Shocking! But never fear; beginning with Rayman Legends today, I predict you’ll see a lot of new games in PlayTime very soon, as we enter the busy pre-holiday season of videogame releases!
With the PS3A team back together, it was business as usual this week; by which I mean DolphGB played The Last of Us and MitchJay played Persona 4 Golden. Being the less predictable members of the team, it was up to Majiesto and me to inject some diversity into this week’s PlayTime, which we achieved with Killzone: Mercenary, Bit.Trip Runner2, BioShock Infinite and Saints Row IV.
Did you miss the livestream of Sony’s Gamescom 2013 press conference?
Well, don’t worry, because the kind folks at Sony have just uploaded the whole thing to YouTube. You can watch it at your leisure right here on PS3 Attitude, below.
In a surprise announcement during Sony’s Gamescom conference, it was been revealed that Gearbox Software’s critically acclaimed role-playing shooter, Borderlands 2, will be coming to PS Vita.
A truly ridiculous amount of indie games have been announced as coming to PlayStation platforms, many of which are launching as console exclusives.

Did we mention there are quite a lot?
The Last of Us. Dishonored. BioShock 2. Assassin’s Creed III. Persona 4: Golden. Final Fantasy XIII. The Walking Dead. Rapala Fishing Frenzy 2009.
All but one of these games has been played by the PS3 Attitude team this week, so can you guess which is the imposter? (Seriously, it isn’t that difficult.)
Can you say ‘The Last of Us’? Whereas most new releases disappear from PS3A PlayTime after a few short weeks, Naughty Dog’s post-apocalyptic survival horror continues to come out on top. Also getting some love this week were Final Fantasy XIII, Saints Row: The Third, Stealth Inc: A Clone in the Dark, The Walking Dead and Zero Escape: Virtue’s Last Reward.
As predicted, The Last of Us is PS3 Attitude’s most played game of the last week. To be honest I’m starting to run out of great things to say about it, so I kind of hope another game takes the top spot next time (although I somehow doubt it). Thankfully, the Steam Summer Sale and MitchJay’s Japanophilic tendencies both help to inject some much-needed variety into today’s PlayTime.
Once again, The Last of Us has been at the very forefront of PS3 Attitude’s play time this week and, judging by its four weeks at the top of the UK videogame chart, we’re not the only ones. Also getting some action this week were quirky JRPG Time and Eternity, the surprisingly decent Deadly Premonition: The Director’s Cut, and great-looking racing sequel Grid 2.
As you could probably expect from the way the whole PS3 Attitude team raved about it last time, The Last of Us has been all over this week’s play time once again. It’s pretty rare for every PS3A team member to play the same game within a single week (in fact, we’re not sure if it’s ever happened before!), which just goes to show how incredible Naughty Dog’s epic really is.
One game in particular has been dominating the team’s play time this week. You can probably guess which title I’m talking about, but just for the sake of clarity: it’s The Last of Us… obviously. At a time when the industry is almost entirely focused on next-gen, it’s good to know we can always rely on Naughty Dog to remind us just how good PS3 gaming can get.
Hello and welcome to the PS3A PlayTime: E3 Special! This week, not only will the PS3 Attitude team be sharing which games have been absorbing our lives over the last couple of weeks, but we’ll also reveal our favourite moments of E3 2013. With game designers making announcements left, right and centre, there’s a lot for us to get through; so let’s get started, shall we?
With the next console generation very nearly upon us, next week is surely destined to become the biggest E3 since 2005. Quite clearly, Sony’s focus will be on making sure they present the PlayStation 4 in the best light possible, but there’s still plenty to look forward to seeing on PS Vita and even PS3 too. Here are the PS3A team’s hopes and expectations for E3 2013!
In the days of the PS2, if you asked me what my favourite videogame series was, I almost certainly would have said Ratchet & Clank. It’s somewhat depressing then, that the last couple of R&C games seemed hell-bent on destroying everything that was good about the series. This is one disillusioned fan’s take on the revered rise and unfortunate fall of Ratchet & Clank.
Firstly, apologies for the slightly late PlayTime post this week, but unfortunately this was due to circumstances out of our control. But anyway, the good news is that now we’re back and better than ever! Well, we’re back at least. Hit the link to discover which games took our fancy this week (and yes, Persona does feature, just in case you were worried).
Another week, another PS3A Weekly Roundup! It’s been a fairly quiet seven days in the videogame industry (presumably all the big publishers are saving their big announcements for E3!), but there’s still been plenty to think about.
Unfortunately DolphGB is still on the road this week, but the rest of us have been trying to fit in as much gaming as possible to make up for it. Specifically, Majiesto has been kicking back with his Vita, MitchJay92 has been beating up superheroes (and playing Persona… obviously), and I’ve taken it upon myself to play as many different games as possible.
Although the biggest news of the week concerned a certain other company and their next set-top box games console, there was still plenty to talk about in the world of PlayStation.
It’s been a fairly busy week for the PS3 Attitude team, but we still managed to squeeze in a bit of good ol’ fashioned gaming. Getting some play time this week were Final Fantasy XIII, Knytt Underground, Spec Ops: The Line, Terraria, Persona 4: Arena, Persona 4: Golden and Persona 3: Portable (no prizes for guessing who’s been playing those last three!).
