The weekly catch-up is back and in full effect–the only difference is it has been moved to Mondays.
We here at PSN Fans love news: release dates, gameplay trailers, hardware details… You name it. However we can’t always report on everything that trickles out of the news machine, which is where Weekly News Catch-Up comes in. Here we cover some of the stories that didn’t make it to the front page the first time around.
Games on tap this week: Jet Set Radio, Joe Danger 2: The Movie, Tony Hawks Pro Skater HD, Red Johnson: One Against All, Super Stardust, Scourge: Outbreak, Haunting Ground, Way of the Samurai 4, Metal Gear Solid HD, Awesomenauts

Joe Danger 2: The Movie (The Examiner)
Coming in this newest installment to the Joe Danger series we can expect to see the normal motorcycle, but we can also expect to see skis, ATV’s, minecarts, unicycles, jet packs, and even a parachute. One of the most exciting changes is the addition of multiplayer, allowing four players to compete at once for the highest score. Although no platforms have been officially announced, we are expecting to see it on the PlayStation Network as that is where Joe Danger got his start.
