PS3 Games You Should Play Before Next-Gen

In nearly six months, the third generation PlayStation will give way to its successor the PlayStation 4. In case you have missed out on some of the best PlayStation 3 games, here is our list of must play games before the PlayStation 4 release.

Uncharted 2: Among Thieves
After playing the original Uncharted, I was left wanting more and Uncharted 2 delivered in every way. I remember playing the opening scene and was absolutely blown away by how cinematic it was. The rest of the game was just as fun with multiple cinematic scenes to support its gripping story. To this day, Uncharted 2 remains as one of my favorite games of all time.

Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots
MGSFrom the moment I played the original Metal Gear Solid back, I knew I was going to love the franchise. Metal Gear has remained on of my favorite franchises and although the story became a bit confusing, MGS4 answers a lot for the player (may not totally make sense if you are new to the series). My only gripe with this game was the extensive cut scenes which literally felt like hours on end sometimes.

Fallout 3
F3Anything that takes place in a post apocalyptic world sparks my interest right away. The game play, perk system and length of the campaign was what I loved most about this game. On the flip side, I felt the story may not deliver to everyone. Regardless of a somewhat weak story, this game definitely remains one of the best PlayStation 3 titles.

Batman:Arkham Asylum
Remember when superhero games used to suck? I do. Arkham Asylum was the game that changed the way superhero games were perceived. The story was awesome, the combat system was almost perfect and the Joker riddles were entertaining. If you enjoy Batman I am sure you have played it, but if not, now is the time to do so.

PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale is Here!

Throughout its almost 20-year history, PlayStation has allowed us as players to explore new worlds, triumph over adversaries, and realize our dreams of rapping superstardom. Three years ago, SuperBot Entertainment, BluePoint Games, and Santa Monica Studio set out to create a game that pays tribute to the amazing memories we as PlayStation fans have all experienced together. Today is the day that we’re able to share that game with you. PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale has arrived!

PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale is a celebration of the PlayStation history: its characters, its universes, and most importantly, its fans. And what better way to celebrate that with some good old-fashioned butt-kicking! In PlayStation All-Stars, up to four players can simultaneously control any of the 20 great PlayStation characters featured on our roster, including Kratos from God of War, Nathan Drake from UNCHARTED, Sackboy from LittleBigPlanet, Big Daddy from BioShock, and Dante from DmC Devil May Cry, and fight it out brawler-style on one of our 14 levels, each one created by mashing up two PlayStation worlds — like the topsy-turvy world of LocoRoco mixed with the war-torn battlefields of Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance.

While our Versus Mode, which pits player against player (against player, against player) will undoubtedly provide endless memorable experiences, venture into Arcade Mode to find out what brings all of these great characters together into one crazy world. And if you’re strong enough, discover what it’s like to face the oldest and most powerful PlayStation All-Star, Polygon Man. Or, head over into the Combat Trials Mode to learn the ins and outs of the Battle Royale combat system. Insight into the various fight mechanics and individual character instructions come together in the form of a fun yet educational mode. And when you’re ready, jump online to challenge the world in either our Tournament or Quick Match Modes, which offer what we feel is an online multiplayer experience virtually indistinguishable from offline play.

Available on both PS3 and PS Vita (digital and retail), PlayStation All-Stars takes full advantage of the interconnectivity between the two platforms via Cross Play, allowing players to battle it out against one another on either device. Owners of both a PS3 and PS Vita can even transfer their saves from one machine to the other, allowing PlayStation All-Stars to be played wherever the fans want to play it. And best of all, if you purchase the PS3 version of the game,you get the PS Vita version at no extra cost! There’s no reason not to take advantage of such a great deal. As a friendly reminder, in order to redeem your digital PS Vita copy form the PS3 on-disc benefit, you’ll need to ensure your PS3 system is updated to the latest firmware, version 4.31.
