North American PS Store Update for November 2 – Another late one

Submitted by on Wednesday, 3 November 201014 Comments

ps store update us North American PS Store Update for November 2   Another late oneIn case you missed it, the world almost imploded for a bunch of PlayStation 3 gamers when there was a delay in publishing the store update… or at least that’s what you’d think if you went over the PlayStation Blog.  Indeed the update was a few hours late but it’s nothing to lose sleep over.  It’s all updated and ready to go now for your purchasing pleasure.  So what do you have to look forward to?

If you’re a Plus member, you have the God of War Collection full game trials to play (non Plus Members still get the games but not the trial) as well as a new mini titled BreakQuest and a few other odds and ends things.

Plus members and regular members alike have episode 25 of Qore to download, as well as the new action/strategy game Hoard.  If you cruise over to the demo section, you’ll find demos for Rock Band 3, Aqua Panic HD and another Split/Second demo.

There’s far more to see and purchase beyond that but we’ll leave the browsing to you.  Be sure to head down to the comments section after seeing the complete list and let us know what you’ll be getting.
