European PS Store updates for 4th October

The EU PS Store has been updated and includes the following:

  • SKATE. Demo
  • Bladestorm Download Demo
  • Stuntman:Ignition Demo
  • Jericho Demo
  • Snakeball Trailer
  • HAZE Gameplay Trailer
  • GRAW 2 Trailers (four of them)
  • Blast Factor Wallpapers
  • flOw Wallpaper
It's good to see a number of demos appearing on the EU Store for once. I appreciate not everyone has a US or JP account, but for those of us that have we already splayed Skate, Bladestorm, Stuntman and Jericho. We also already had the wallpapers.

So, four GRAW 2 trailers (well, instructional videos really) and a Haze gameplay video are all that's new if you're a multi-region account user. Still, it's a step in the right direction and if SCEE can keep things moving at this pace we might get a weekly Store update that's somewhere close to the US soon.

Latest UK release dates for upcoming PS3 AAA titles

In an attempt to add to the general level of joy that has been created by this week's GRAW 2 release, I thought it would be a good idea to get the latest release dates for the PS3 AAA titles I listed recently to help show how much we've got coming along in the next few months.

I got these by comparing the GAME UK and Amazon UK dates and picking the most pessimistic of the two dates. I've purposefully not gone to the rumour-mill or other news sites to pick up the latest 'guaranteed' dates (which rarely prove to be right, including my own past predictions!).

I'm also not saying these are the final dates for any of these releases. In any case, I still think this list is pretty close to the truth and will help you work out how much overtime you need to clock up to afford your favourite titles!

And in case you're not up to speed on these titles, you'll find video links against all of them - just click the [vid] link. Enjoy!

PS3 releases for week beginning 20th August


Hooray! There's a new release this week!!

And not just in Europe. This one is going worldwide, people.

Yes, Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2 (GRAW 2) will be on shelves and in on-line stores for your delectation this week.

If you haven't played the demo, go ahead and download it from the PS Store now to get a reasonably long taste of what's to come. Whilst this title doesn't whet my whistle quite like Call of Duty 4, it seems like a blast and I'll be picking up a copy myself to while away the hours between The Darkness and completing God of War 2 and Okami (both of which I've left 90% done for too long now! I need closure damnit!).

Upcoming PS3 releases for 2007

To help illustrate just how much there is to look forward to I thought I'd dig around and pull out some of the forthcoming joyfulness that will hit the PS3 before the end of the year (in alphabetical order):

Army of Two
Assassin's Creed
Call of Duty 4
DiRT
Eye of Judgement (and the PS Eye in general)
GRAW 2
Guitar Hero III
Haze
Heavenly Sword
Jericho
Juiced 2
Kane & Lynch
Lair
PlayStation Home
Ratchet and Clank Future
Rock Band
SingStar
Skate
Stranglehold
Tiger Woods, Madden and FIFA 08

Kind of makes the delayed GTA: IV seem like a bit more of a non-issue, don't you think?

Another great demo on the way; GRAW 2


We're getting spoilt for choice when it comes to forthcoming PS3 titles.

The 'Community Manager' (whatever that is) at SCEE has revealed that we'll be getting a demo of Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2 (GRAW 2) by the end of August via the PS Store.

Of course, the game is supposed to arrive by the end of August too but there's nothing new in having the demo available at the same time as the game (The Darkness demo, for example - although we got it late in Europe, it was out in the US when the demo hit).

Keep 'em coming Sony!
