PS3A PlayTime: 18th-24th Mar 2013
It looks like the entire PS3 Attitude team has had a busy week, but we still managed to find a little time for our favourite pastime. Topping the list of our most played games over the past week was Team Ninja’s awesome fighter Dead or Alive 5 (on both PS3 and Vita), but God of War: Ascension, Lumines: Electronic Symphony and Persona 4: Golden all proved popular too.
The PS3A Weekly Roundup: 18th-24th Mar 2013
It’s been an undeniably quiet week at PS3 Attitude, although we did bring you a couple of big features in the form of our definitive God of War: Ascension review as well as our thoughts on Dead or Alive 5 Plus.
Dead or Alive 5 Plus shows its best moves on Vita
The PlayStation Vita is no stranger to fighting games. In the last year we’ve already seen the likes of BlazBlue, Mortal Kombat, PS All-Stars Battle Royale and Street Fighter all appear on Sony’s handheld console. So does Dead or Alive 5 Plus have what it takes to compete?
God of War: Ascension – The PS3 Attitude Review
A warrior’s journey is never truly finish and although Kratos has conquered Mount Olympus and toppled the gods, there is still much to be told. God of War: Ascension chronicles the beginning of Kratos’ journey as he breaks his blood oath with Ares and vows vengeance on the god of war. It’s an act that draws the wrath of the three Furies, the guardians and enforcers of punishment on those who disobey the gods. Not one to stand down lightly, Kratos does what he does best; kill everything.
Has Kratos ascended beyond the status of a god or does his latest venture sink to the depths of Hades?
Persona 4 Arena finally gets a European release date, pre-order bonuses revealed

It’ll be launching on PS3 almost a whole year after it released in Japan and the US and to make up for the delay, we’ll be treated to some exclusive pre-order bonuses.
PS3A PlayTime: 11th-17th Mar 2013
This week, DolphGB has been proving how much of a danger to society he is in Hitman: Absolution, Majiesto has likely been doing much the same in God of War: Ascension, MitchJay92 has become just a little obsessed with Persona 4: Golden, and I’ve been incessantly running to the right while jumping over gaps and avoiding obstacles; wait, what?
The PS3A Weekly Roundup: 11th-17th Mar 2013
