Oooh boy, you lucky Playstation Plus subscribers you. October looks like it's going to have some good games for your Playstation 4.

Incredibly punishing (and incredibly fun) platformer Super Meat Boy and the very charming puzzle game Broken Age will both be free to download for Playstation Plus subscribers Oct. 6.

The Playstation Blog has a few more details:

Super Meat Boy will challenge even the most devoted platforming players with teeth-grinding levels, insane obstacles, horrible traps, and smiling chunks of meat. Yum! Can you stand against the gory onslaught of near-impossible tasks in Super Meat Boy? You'll find out soon enough…

If that's a little too intense, why not point and click at things, instead? Broken Age is joining the PS Plus lineup, too! In it, guide two teenagers through strangely similar circumstances but on two different worlds. With a gorgeous soundtrack and award-winning cast, Broken Age is perfect for gamers that grew up with the adventure genre. Or people that just want to hear some jokes. Jokes are always good.



Although the post says to check the official Playstation page for the free Playstation 3 and Vita games for October, that site has not yet been updated with that information.

How quickly the time goes by, especially when you're playing video games.

Over at the Playstation Blog

they've begun celebrating the landmark anniversary of the first Playstation launch in America, which happened 20 years ago Sept. 9.

Those were exciting and pioneering times for all of us: new technology, the arcade experience in the home, and no guarantee that we would still be around come the turn of the century –- or sooner. Exciting times indeed.

But we did make it. And thanks to the dedication and passion of the greatest gaming community of all time, the PlayStation Nation, we are celebrating the twentieth birthday of the original PlayStation system, which officially launched in North America on September 9th, 1995. At its launch, PlayStation was a stylish, powerful, developer-friendly game console that popularized polygonal 3D graphics and CD playback of games and music.



Do you have any memories of that launch? Any favorite PS1 games?

Surely you've seen all the stuff going around about Pluto after New Horizons provided us with the clearest shot we've ever had of the dwarf planet, but did you know the CPU powering the New Horizons probe is the same CPU that once powered the ORIGINAL PLAYSTATION CONSOLE? We're talking about the PS1 here, the console that brought you this:

NASA launched New Horizons in 2006, so they could have used at least a PS2 equivalent CPU, but I guess NASA just likes to keep it classic.

Back in the early 1990s, Nintendo and Sony teamed up to make a video game console combining Nintendo's Super Nintendo technology with Sony's Compact Discs. It was the original PlayStation. After the collaboration fell through, Sony moved forward with making the PlayStation we know now, but dizzle521 has one of the original protoypes for the canceled Nintendo Playstation. It's an impressive piece of video game history.

It's a been a long day full of hype and joy, and Sony's E3 conference was a fitting end to such an action-packed marathon. The conference was equal parts nostalgia and familiar titles, with plenty to satisfy new converts to PlayStation and those who have dutifully had a PlayStation console in their homes since the '90s.
