With the purchase of one highly anticipated PS3 game, you will be getting early access to another.
An exclusive SOCOM 4 beta will be available when, or if, you go to pick up your copy of Killzone 3. Of course there is no say on how long the beta will be available, but PlayStation's Official Blog does say to look out for the marked boxes that say: "Early access SOCOM 4 multiplayer beta". The announcement from PlayStation did not say when the beta will start or end. I guess we need to wait until February 22 to find out more.

Bulletstorm will offer 3 game modes including a single-play campaign and a multiplayer mode. However, the third mode, known as Echo mode, will be available in the early access demo.

It looks like Lara Croft is getting a HD make-over this March.

If you are a big Tomb Raider fan, then you can pick this collection up for $39.99 on March 22, 2011. Just the thing fans need to get pumped up for the future game's release. Signs say that this will be PlayStation 3 exclusive.
