October 9th, 2011
A robust week for PSN news, including an update that allows a free download of the
NHL GameCenter application, a list of The Tester: Season 3′s top 20 contenders, a first look at PSN killing machine Shank 2, a new video showing the heroes of Okabu, an October 18th release date for PSN exclusive RocketBirds: Hardboiled Chicken, and a long-awaited PSN release date for co-op tower defense title Dungeon Defenders ( October 18th!). That’s in addition to a peek behind Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One’s box art and a confirmed U.S. release for PS3 exclusive Yakuza: Dead Souls. Not bad, eh?
