Oh wow, this is awkward. The first ‘World of Playstation’ was done a couple of months ago. Hmmm… well, here’s another one. Since that first article (which you can check out here), there have been some interesting news coming out of the world of Playstation. So, what has been the hottest Playstation news?
First up, Uncharted 3 has shot to the top with 3.8 million sold in 24 hours. Why don’t you read our review while your here? Also, the Playstation 3 has also exceeded expectations as it becomes the No. 1 selling console of 2011.
Second, the Playstation Vita has a release date in Australia and New Zealand, as well as other major regions outside of East Asia. North America, Europe, Africa and the Middle East receives it on the 22nd of February and Australia and New Zealand receive it on the 23rd of February. Check out both articles for more information (NA/EU/AF/ME date and AU/NZ date). Also, the UMD Passport program was announced. This will allow certain UMD games for the PSP to be registered so that the user can get a digital version for their Vita at a heavily discounted price.
Talking about portable consoles, the Playstation Portable has it’s fifth iteration called the E1000. It is now available for those who are looking for a cheap portable thrill. For what it contains, check out this article.
Let’s move to the Playstation Move. To celebrate the launch of DanceStar Party, Australia hosted a dance-off competition at Circular Quay hosted by So You Think You Can Dance US host Cat Deeley’s. David Hasselhoff also shows off his dance moves for the game.
More Move news and there is a wave of Move games that are coming during November. Other than DanceStar Party, look out for Move Fitness, After Hours Athletes, Eyepet and Friends, Carnival Island, Medieval Moves and Start The Party: Save The World. I would say it is an exciting time to own the Playstation Move. Maybe buy it as a Christmas present.
Two Playstation branded peripherals are being released this month. First, the 3D display has been released in the US, with no date yet for Australia and New Zealand. What is on sale right now is the Playstation 3 Wireless Stereo Headset. It has 7.1 Virtual Surround Sound and built-in microphone for high quality voice chat. Expect to fork out AU$149.95.
That is about it for this month’s World of Playstation. Be sure to check out the website for the latest Playstation news, reviews and previews. Until next time, enjoy your Uncharted 3… or any other Playstation 3 and Playstation Portable game you need to complete.
