UPDATED: European PS Store Update For 3rd September – Really?

Submitted by on Sunday, 6 September 20095 Comments

EU_PSN_bReally?  Is this how SCEE capitalizes on the popularity of firmware 3.0?  A re-hashed demo (not even a good one at that) and a smattering of DLC?  Except for you Rock Band, you have always come through for us every time but Christmas (when you crushed our hearts).

The saying goes beggars can’t be choosers, which is true, but beggars can be really grumpy if they don’t get what they want.  Then again, we are not beggars; we paid a pretty penny pence for this newfangled computer entertainment system and we want cool games and content for it.  Now.

Unless you’ve been waiting for the F.E.A.R. 2 pack or the Summer blockbuster Buzz! Junior: Monster Rumble, this update sucks.  We guess you’ll have to do with the one dynamic plain old boring Burn Zombie Burn! theme.  Wait a minute…£1.19/€1.49?!  It’s not even free?!  Really?

Updated: September 6, 2009

So that Burn Zombie Burn! theme was just a 'premium' theme and not a dynamic one. Our bad. Silly us thought that Europe would get a dynamic theme this week like Hong Kong (1), Japan (3) and North America (4). Europe got jack squat, making this an even worse update. Ouch.
