Here’s what happened this weekend in text and audio form. Note that we’re taking a break from recording the audio for a week due to travelling commitments.

  • Sony’s aired the first official ad for the PlayStation Phone. As everyone into the entire world that cares about such things knew, it’s called Xperia Play. The device will be full announced at WMC later this month.
  • Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood has been awarded the 2010 Writer’s Guild of America award for videogame writing.
  • Bulletstorm marketing parody shooter Duty Calls has racked up over 1.25 million downloads since its release last week.
  • Capcom’s Yoshinori Ono has said “the time feels right” to ressurect classic Japanese actioner franchise, Onimusha. Doesn’t sound like he’s getting anywhere with the previously mentioned Darkstalkers reboot, though.

Now listen to this. Enrichen your day.
