US PS Store updates for 13th December

A good update for the US but, for the third time ever, the European update is actually better.

We got three demos, two games and a bunch of add-ons, which competes well against one demo, no games and a bunch of add-ons. In other words, we see your update and raise you.

The only thing that doesn't add up is the Need for Speed unlockables. You can work through career mode in the game to earn all of these. But also, game saves have been available on the internet for PS3 titles without any cost or toil needed. Why would you spend money unlocking everything when you can download it, or play it, for free to get the same content? Weird.

Here's the full list:

  • 2 x new characters - High Velocity Bowling add-on ($0.99 each)
  • Burnout Paradise - demo (free)
  • Punk Pack 1 - Rock Band track pack ($5.49 - "I Fought the Law", "Rockaway Beach" and "Ever Fallen in Love" available separately at $1.99 each)
  • Ultimate Performance Bundle - NFS: Pro Street unlockable ($9.99)
  • Muscle Car Bundle - NFS: Pro Street unlockable ($4.99)
  • Tuner Car Bundle - NFS: Pro Street unlockable ($4.99)
  • Sport Car Bundle - NFS: Pro Street unlockable ($4.99)
  • Lamborghini Murcielago LP640 - NFS: Pro Street unlockable ($2.99)
  • Pagani Zonda F - NFS: Pro Street unlockable ($2.99)
  • Nissan GT-R - NFS: Pro Street unlockable ($2.99)
  • GT Awards at SEMA - video (free)
  • "Stunt Run" - Burnout Paradise trailer (free)
  • Tony Hawk's Pro Skater - trailer (free)
  • Ratchet & Clank - behind the scenes video (free)
  • Untraceable - movie trailer (free)
  • Cloverfield - movie trailer (free)

European release for week beginning 29th October

Coming this week to a store near you (or a store far away if you're that way inclined), are the following tasty PS3 morsels.

Bladestorm: The Hundred Years War
Tony Hawk's Proving Ground
NBA 2K8
NHL 2K8

You can pre-order any of these by clicking the links.

Not a bad week but considering the titles coming in November, I'll be saving my pennies for now.

The skating wars heat up as Skate gets 5/5


Gamer.tv on the Bravo channel did a spot on the forthcoming EA title, Skate.

Whilst they admitted it takes a while to get used to the control mechanism, it seems that once you do get the hang of it the game feels much more like real skating than any of the Tony Hawk franchise.

They gave Skate 5 out of 5. Other sites have also given Skate great reviews, with scores ranging from 8.5 to 9.5 out of 10. With the Tony Hawk's Proving Ground demo playing well on the PS3, it seems we really have a bone fide competition on our hands.
