PS3 Exclusive The Last of Us now available in the Philippines

the last of us philippines

There’s a lot of life left in the PS3 even post-E3 and that’s saying a lot. As the current generation of consoles come to a close, the PS3 has aged gracefully. While Sony is set to release the PS4 this November, they’ve given gamers a sweet parting gift — The Last of Us. Developed by Naughty Dog (in my opinion the best AAA-game studio developer also responsible for the Uncharted series), this PS3-exclusive has a hype that truly does justice to the actual product, from more than two years of previews, teasers, live-action trailers and let’s play videos. It’s finally here. The Last of Us has strategy guides available in digital and in print. You can opt to buy book online for a hard copy.

Angry Birds Trilogy on the PS3 is around PHP 2,000.00

On iOS, you can get the original trilogy for free. If you pay a dollar per game, you get the extra levels and block ads. I’m not sure why you need to shell out 2,000% more for the same game on the console.


Angry Birds for the PS3 is available on PSN for USD $39.99

Sony shows off country’s first 84-inch 4K TV; sells for PHP 1.2 Million

You need to see it to believe it folks. Yesterday, Sony Philippines pulled out a number of wildcards from Japan. Apart from featuring the new VAIO Duo 11 and VAIO Tap 20 both running on Windows 8, they were also the first to showcase an 84-inch 4K television which will be made available to the (opulent) public for the holidays. The XBR-84X900 is a wonder that goes (waaaay!) over and beyond the “traditional” 1080p resolution. This 4k TV comes with a resolution of 3840 x 2160 and if those numbers mean nothing to you, it simply means that if you’re watching great blu-ray movies on your 40″ or 60″ LED TV, imagine even better “pop out” quality on a bigger 84-incher.

NBA 2K13 is out: make sure you buy the PH version as in-game items are region locked

XPLAY.PH sells NBA2K13 at the following prices:
PS3 PHP 2,595
XBOX 360 PHP 2,495
PC PHP 1,995
PSP PHP 1,895

Just a friendly PSA from the good guys of NBA 2K13 — with the game being released this week in the Philippines for all platforms, it needs to be noted that if you’re going to be playing this on the PC, XBOX 360 or Playstation 3, you absolutely should get your copy from a local vendor as the in-game items are region-locked.

I’m not a huge sports gamer on the console and PC (my brother is) but I can understand the huge frustration when you bring home a disk from another region expecting to be able to access the online features and DLC’s — and you can’t because they’re blocked from South East Asia.

So, do yourself a favor and buy original from a local vendor. If you’re planning on ordering this from Steam (like its predecessors), it isn’t available.

On another note, if you’re willing to spend a bit more for freebies, check out the Dynasty Edition which gives you the following additional items:


Full sized basketball from Spalding and Art of Basketball
2K Sports Ink’d Earbuds from Skullcandy
2K13 DLC: All-Star add-on content package sponsored by Sprite
2K13 controller skin from Sklnlt for XBOX 360 or PS3

Fallout 3 for the PC bootleg copies make it first before Datablitz

Oh my. I still haven’t had my fill of the zombie apocalypse and I’m knee deep into another one. Fallout 3 is the third installation to the Fallout series, the spiritual successor to 1988’s Wasteland. It’s been roughly eleven years since I’ve worn the pipboy.

There were two role-playing titles in the series (Fallout and Fallout 2), one tactical role-playing game spinoff (Fallout Tactics: Brotherhood of Steel) and one action dungeon-crawler for PlayStation 2 and Xbox (Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel). A sequel, Fallout 3, was recently released by Bethesda Softworks. Bethesda now owns the rights to make all Fallout games,[1][2] and has conditionally licensed the rights to make a massively multiplayer online role-playing game version of Fallout to Interplay. In 2001, PC Gamer named Fallout and Fallout 2 as the fourth best computer game of all time. [Fallout 3 series]

Torrents and pirated copies are everywhere – the original discs are only out for the XBOX 360 and Playstation 3. Datablitz still doesn’t carry the PC version.

The Fallout series is best known for its tongue in cheek humor towards post nuclear America.
