The Catch-Up: July 4th, 2013 – Beyond: Two Souls $35 Pre-Orders Being Cancelled, New Grand Theft Auto V Wallpapers

Due to Independence Day, news has been pretty slow, but it didn’t stop at least a few small pieces of information leaking into the world.

General News

  • You might recall that the Sony Store was offering a pre-order of Beyond: Two Souls for $35 recently.

So, it’s not much. [Wood]
