The AU news wrap – here’s what happened in the past of the future.
Before you go any further, you must, must, must get caught up on Steph’s shift which was a long as it was Boom-packed – check out her news wrap for Sony asset blowouts, EA announcements and more.
Many of you reading this now will have been sleeping when these tasty morsels made a break for it. Fortunately, Brenna caught all the good bits in her magic news-catching net and committed them to digital paper by way of digital ink.
I’ll have a European news wrap for you in around nine hours time, but first: get caught up on this mother-lode, sleepy-head:

What, they haven’t renamed this yet?
- Analyst: PS3 price cut to spur industry
After last month’s NPD results, I should hope so.

I think there’s room for existing models to persist, albeit with lower price tags and production costs.

Having played Journey, I’ve got to say non-traditional multiplayer experiences are great.

Wow. Big call. The last ten years didn’t change that much – did they?

I expect it will probably make it through as MA15+.

That’d make some locals very happy indeed.
