This week was notable for two big reasons: Firstly, I had the pleasure of meeting some of you during our Resistance: Burning Skies multiplayer tournament in San Francisco. Secondly, God of War: Ascension made its public debut with a debut trailer and more details to come during our April 30th livestream event. We’ll also be posing your questions to the development team during the livestream, so Tweet your God of War: Ascension questions to @PlayStation on Twitter for consideration (and include #godofwarascension in your Tweet so we can find it!).
