The PlayStation Recap – This and That Edition

This week saw several key announcements for PlayStation, including the PSN Summer Sale, the Journey Collector’s Edition Blu-ray, the launch of The Walking Dead: Episode Two – Starved for Help, and confirmation of a LittleBigPlanet Karting Beta. Behind the scenes, Rey and I also paid a visit to SuperBot Entertainment, creators of PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, and chatted with the team about the studio’s creation, the game’s surprisingly deep combat system, and winning strategies. Look for the results later this summer right here on PlayStation.Blog.
