news: Weekend Essentials 127

There’s something for everyone this weekend as Sorcery, DiRT Showdown, Table Top Tanks and more great entertainment arrives on PlayStation.

The magic is in your hands

Your PlayStation Move motion controller becomes a powerful magic wand this weekend as Sorcery lands on PlayStation 3. As young apprentice sorcerer Finn, can you master the power of PS Move to conquer the Nightmare Queen and restore peace to the Faerie Kingdom?

Find out if you’re up to the challenge this weekend by picking up your copy of Sorcery.

A new kind of DiRT

The world is your playground this weekend in DiRT Showdown on PS3, the brand new arcade racing game from the team behind the award-winning DiRT series. Blast past rivals on spectacular courses, smash your way through a series of demolition derbies or go wild in free-roaming stunt parks – the choice is yours.

Experience a new world of driving delirium on PS3 this weekend with DiRT Showdown.

Answer the call

Save the world this weekend on PS3: pick up Dragon’s Dogma and immerse yourself in huge, open and lush environments where you must track down and destroy a mysterious dragon, or go deep undercover as a precision-trained human weapon in Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Future Soldier. Which one will you choose?

New to download

A certain time-travelling doctor and his trusty companion invite you to join them on an exhilarating romp across the universe this weekend on PS3 as Doctor Who: The Eternity Clock materialises on PlayStation Store. Elsewhere, grab your PlayStation Move motion controller and show off your cooking skills in Order Up!!, or try the latest augmented reality experience on PlayStation Vita courtesy of Table Top Tanks.
