The Playstation Blog just announced the “Playstation Experience” tour, which will give gamers the chance to play several of their games within their awesomely equipped vehicle designed for gaming. One of the coolest things about this tour though, is that LittleBigPlanet’s been announced to be on that bus. There will be two trucks heading across the country, so to find out which one will be heading near you, check out the schedules here and here.
If you own Rock Band on the the Playstation 2 or plan to own it on the Nintendo Wii when it comes out, you’re likely disappointed by the fact that once you beat the game, that’s it.

If you head on over to Cheap Ass Gamer, they have some coupon codes for you to get Fatal Frame III for $34.99, which is pretty good. It might not sound like that great of a deal for a PS2 game, but know this; this game is fairly hard to find. Pick it up while you can.
If you enjoyed the latest Twisted Metal game on your PSP, nows your chance to play it on your Playstation 2. Eat, Sleep, Play, the developers of the Twisted Metal series is now offering you a chance to win Twisted Metal: Head On: Extra Twisted Edition, a PSP port for your PS2.
First of all, you have to be a Playstation Underground member, and if you own a PS2 or PS3, I don’t see why you wouldn’t be anyway. Then, you have to answer the questions on this page. There will be 3 of these challenges all together and 5 people from each challenge will win a copy of the game. If you complete all three puzzles, you have a chance at the grand prize, which is a copy of the game and free Ice Cream of the Season for 4 months. I’m not really sure what that means though.
If you only own a Nintendo Wii, you’re probably bummed that PS3 and Xbox 360 owners are the only ones playing it, but don’t worry, Activision’s got you covered on the next one. They have confirmed that Call of Duty 5 will have both a Wii and a PS2 version. Now they’ll be able to rake in even more dough from the hugely popular franchise.
Konami has confirmed that a complete collection of Metal Gear Solid games are coming to the Playstation 2 to prepare you for the upcoming release of Metal Gear Solid 4. If you don’t already own all of them, Metal Gear Solid: The Essential Collection is a great way to learn the back story of the game. The game will come with director cuts of the 2nd and 3rd in the series, and will come in commemorative packaging. That would be an awesome gift if you know someone with a birthday coming up. It would be hard to find a gamer who doesn’t already own all of the MGS games already though.
In some awesome news, the PSP take on the Silent Hill series, Silent Hill Origins, has been announced to be coming to the Playstation 2. Silent Hill has always been one of my favorite games, and I definitely can’t wait to play this. I’ve actually only played a little bit of this one on my brother’s PSP and I got my ass handed to me by five nurses, but the game still felt scary and a whole lot of fun. The game will also feature updated controls. No release date has yet been set as the game is currently in development.
