FirstPlay 011: Full Contents

Another week another FirstPlay. I have tried to think of something to recommend it this week, I really did, but I have failed.  Sure there’s the exclusive Backbreaker demo, but here in the UK (and IE) do we really care about an American Football game?  If you do, you probably downloaded the demo off the U.S. store yesterday.  And in the week that all the E3 trailers hit the PSN Store, saying you have got the “first shots” of Killzone 3?!  As K.B. would say “Come On!!”


  • Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker
  • International Cricket 2010


  • LittleBigPlanet 2
  • R.U.S.E.  (The ruse is Ubisoft making you think this’ll ever release.)

  1. “(The ruse is Ubisoft making you think this’ll ever release.)”

    I must admit that made me laugh like a bitch

  2. Well, this was 9 notes and about an hour of my time i’ll never see again.

  3. Well, this has been 9 notes and about an hour of my time i’ll never see again.

    • oops :/

      • And now you owe us time for posting so much! :-P

      • yes, 9 seconds of my life ill never get back

  4. Agree with you, Greg. First time I won’t be buying it but I’ll put this down to bad timing with the clash of E3 (and god-awful American football games).

  5. Hang on, online embargo for Cricket isn’t up yet…

    • Maybe it’s the only way they could get content into FirstPlay that wasn’t a month old? The review is also in the copy of OPM I got today.

  6. I bought it for the 4 minis , no complaints there. If only FirstPlay was good enough to stand on it’s own but in it’s current format i can’t see that happening.

  7. Utter sh*t. That’s how I’d sum up this pitiful offering.

  8. What is there of good interest? American Kick-a-brown-rugbyball? disappointing

  9. Pushing a hoop, with a stick. A stick!

  10. Demon’s Souls review next week so maybe that’ll make it worth getting
