The Catch-Up: August 8th, 2013 – PlayStation All-Stars Island Out on iOS/Android, BioShock Infinite DLC to Debut New Areas of Rapture

I can’t decide if I like the Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 Remix title screen, or really hate it.

  • In a weird and surprising move, a new iOS and Android game called PlayStation All-Stars Island is available to download for free on iOS and Android. The island in question is “fictional, fantasy island that has been created to host the best and most exciting characters from PlayStation games, with mini-games based off Uncharted, LittleBigPlanet Karting, inFamous, and Gravity Rush included. It’s nothing like PlayStation All-Stars. [Check it Out]

  • Below from Capybara Games was announced at E3 for the Xbox One, but “like many games on stage at E3, Below will be available on the Xbox One first. Then, after a period of time, CAPY can bring it elsewhere. It’s always been this way.” So, if you thought Below looked interesting, it should hit PS4 eventually. [Via/Source]
