– Hang on, Shadow Of The Beast is back? Bloody hell! Plot twist! Most of you probably don’t even remember it.

– Showing off The Playroom now. If you need a piss break, now’s the time.

– Comes pre-installed though, and it looks pretty fun. Obviously you need a PS Camera, though.

– Assassin’s Creed 3 for PS+ next month. Yay? Just trolling Microsoft, really.

– And now a live demo of AC4 Black Flag. It’s got pirates in it.

– PS3 price drop… yay…

– Certain games will be cheaper on PS4 if you already have the PS3 version. Same deal as Microsoft earlier.


– Shot at Microsoft, love it. “Some have been inconsistent and changed their story…”

– USA 15th November, Europe 29th November. Well then.

And that’s it. We have a date!
