Another big week. We had a few reviews to read, if you want to check out those. We also got a couple new Blog team members, and there are a bunch of videos to check out. FooBear went to the Dragon Age II event last week, and brought back some goodies he’s giving away on the blog (including some really cool coasters).
It also seems that the NGP is still making quite the appearance in the news, reeling in from it’s unveiling a couple weeks ago. We also got a sneak peak at things to come for PlayStation Plus subscribers, as well as information on upcoming games.
The Killzone 3 multiplayer open beta also released later in the week, and with it, we had a couple game day/nights. Some people claim it can’t be a beta, given how the game is already golden, but I think my assumption was correct in that they were testing potential launch day server load problems, and are ironing them out before the game’s release.
Community News & Game Nights
First of all, congratulations to Oly and Luke for becoming part of the PS3Blog.net team!

We had a couple game nights (well, one was in the morning) for the Killzone 3 open beta. Other than that, nothing was planned, but to help curb the confusion on time zones, these posts should now include a countdown so you know exactly how long you have until the event takes place .
Although you might be a little late at this point, we had the chance to place bets on tonight’s Super Bowl.

Killzone 3 Can Be Completed in 4.5 Hours (Update from Killzonedotcom’s Twitter Page)
Beastxjason on February 4th, 2011 7 Comments
Even though this is a small number of our total visitors, if the trend were to continue, it shows that the majority of people are, in fact, planning on getting the PSP2 at some point.
This is a simple one,a dn suggested by Ace (who will get 200 points for it). Are you, or are you not, going to purchase Killzone 3? With the release of the multiplayer beta last week and the single player demo this week, are you already planning on getting it, or are you waiting to see what others have to say (outside of the corporate reviews)? Or are you just not interested in Killzone at all?
Will you be purchasing Killzone 3?
Yes, Launch Day
