North American PS Store Update for September 28 – The Demo Edition

Submitted by on Wednesday, 29 September 20103 Comments

ps store update us North American PS Store Update for September 28   The Demo EditionIt’s that time again!  Time for the North American PlayStation Store Update!  We’ve effectively named this one the ‘demo update’ because it contains six demos.  So if you’re the ‘try it before you buy it’ type, then this is the update for you!

Aside from all the demolicious goodness, we’ve also got 3 new games to download.  If you’re a PlayStation Plus member, this might not be as exciting for you since 2 of them were available for download last week.  Regardless, Deathspank: Thongs of Virtue, Swords & Soldiers and the long awaited Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light are all available.

If none of the above interests you, then there’s plenty of other add-on content, wallpaper, avatars and price drops to take a look at.  Put some thought in to it and be sure to let us know what you’ll be picking up.
