North American PS Store Update For July 2nd – Could It Be?

Submitted by on Thursday, 2 July 2009No Comment

psn-usDid Europe get the superior update this week?  They certainly have more downloadable games, a demo and a PSone Classic than North America.

However, North America got balls.  High Velocity Bowling Ball packs not found in Europe.  Coincidence?  You be the judge.  Cross Edge gets free items and a free dungeon while 007 Quantum of Solace gets a map pack. We really enjoyed Quantum of Solace’s multiplayer and we are pleased to see this new map pack finally come out.

All this is exclusive to North America’s PlayStation Store, but is that enough to best Europe?  Did they really have the best store update this week?

Besides Europe getting Red Baron (game and demo) a little more than three months after North America, it looks like they took the cake with their ‘Downoadable Games’ offering; unless you count Qore and PULSE, presented by the PlayStation Network, as game breakers.  NA has the better quality of ‘Add-on Game Content’, but EU has the better quantity.  Damn you Tiger.  EU even got a bigger and better ‘Game Videos’ offering and nobody should care about North American premium themes.

So who got the better update Europe or North America?  Discuss!
