European PS Store Update for December 22nd – Best update ever!!!

Submitted by on Wednesday, 22 December 20108 Comments

ps store update eu European PS Store Update for December 22nd   Best update ever!!!Traditionally, the PS Store update before Christmas is always chock-full of great content, but this year SCEE have truly outdone themselves, with what is without a doubt the best update ever!

Firstly, later today will see the releases of a number of highly anticipated PSN titles, including Eat Them!, echochrome ii, Magic: The Gathering, Tetris, and the first batch of NEOGEO Station games.

There’s also a ridiculous amount of trials and demos, the stand-outs of which are what will no doubt be three of 2011′s biggest games: Dead Space 2, LittleBigPlanet 2, and Mass Effect 2.

You’ll also find a massive amount of downloadable content, notably the Battlefield: Bad Company 2 – Vietnam, as well as add-ons for Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit, R.U.S.E., and The Sims 3.

Furthermore, there’s the biggest sale the European Store has ever seen, with far too much content to list here, but some of our picks are Joe Danger, Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light, and PixelJunk Shooter. Be sure to check out the huge list of deals on the Store.

But that’s not all! From today, PlayStation Plus subscribers can also download (for free) the minis title, A Space Shooter for 2 Bucks, and the NEOGEO game, Samurai Shodown. There’s also further discounts on other NEOGEO titles, and more.

Merry Christmas!
