FirstPlay Episode #28 is GO!

BOSH! FirstPlay - PlayStation's number one source for new games which is beamed live to your PS3 - has another episode out today. But what can you expect for your 99p? We'll let the good folk of FirstPlay tell you right... now:

Hello everyone,

We’ve got another packed episode this week, with an exclusive PSN trial of the brilliantly bloodthirsty side-scrolling RTS Swords & Soldiers, and our last bit of PlayStation Home Top Gun attire – the one you’ve been waiting for, Maverick’s helmet. Show me the way home. Home! I’ve been waiting weeks to say that.

We’ve also got another strong line-up of games, with reviews of EA’s rebooted blockbuster Medal Of Honor, and muddy-as-hell puddle sim FIA World Rally Championship. We’ve also got a behind-the-scenes preview of EA Sports’ MMA, and a round-up of other releases featuring Jon Daly’s ProStroke Golf, Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions.

And there’s more – a huge hands-on multiplayer preview of Call Of Duty: Black Ops, including interviews with developer Treyarch, our top ten list of the best weapons you can build in Dead Rising 2, and a look at your latest skin-tearing Skate catastrophes.

On top of all that we’ve got a review of Swords & Soldiers – luckily, it’s not rubbish – and another round of screenshot galleries, this week featuring Batman Arkham City, Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One, F3AR and Yakuza 4.

Go on, admit it – that’s loads of stuff for just 99p. Over half an hour of HD gaming to watch, a game to play, and a special helmet to wear while you dance like a lunatic in the event space. And, if you subscribe for just £8.99 for 12 weeks, it’s even less. Less than hardly anything in the first place.

We really are keen to hear your thoughts, feedback, ideas for recurring jokes to go at the bottom of our blog posts, so please, please do get in touch with us. You can do so on on Twitter at @firstplay_uk,, or the official EU forums. ( And don’t forget you can sign up for the FirstPlay newsletter at to have regular news and content updates delivered directly.

See the Future of PS3. First.
