There’s also five new minis, a Move demo for Planet Minigolf, and shed loads of downloadable add-ons, including content for Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood, BlazBlue: Continuum Shift, DJ Hero 2, Mushroom Wars, Rock Band 3, and Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II.
PlayStation Plus subscribers also have some more free treats to download again this week. This new batch of content comes in the form of a Full Game Trial of Prototype, the Turbo! add-on pack for LittleBigPlanet PSP, and exclusive access to the DC Universe Online beta (which, by the way you might want to free up some space for).
So, what will you be downloading today?
This week’s update is packed with such delicious content. If you’re a PlayStation Plus subscriber, you can now download the DC Universe Online beta. The initial size is deceptively small, weighing in at a meager 117MBs. Don’t let that fool you though, the actual size ends up being 15GBs. It’s definitely worth checking out though.
Additionally, all five episodes of Sam & Max are free to PS+ members, along with Crash Team Racing and Fieldrunners. As usual, there’s a bunch of discounted games as well.
As for everyone else, there’s a bunch of new games in today’s update. Actually, it’s more like a bunch of old games , with titles like Prince of Persia: Warrior Within HD, Galaxy Fight (PSone Import), Prototype (overpriced), and the infamous X-Men Arcade (awesome).
On the DLC front, there’s a free update for Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood that adds a new map and gamemode to the online multiplayer. The Force Unleashed II also received a ridiculously cheap bonus mission add-on. Fans of the Legacy of Kain series will be pleased to know that Raziel and Kain have finally been reunited… as a downloadable character pack for Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light. It’s not quite a return to Nosgoth, but it’s good enough for now. For the music lovers out there, there’s a bunch of new Rock Band songs featuring Billy Joel.
