As far as updates for the Playstation Store go this one falls somewhere in the range of forgettable and unnoticed.
There’s not much to be had in this weeks treasure trove of offerings. Hopefully this is just the calm before the storm. Those still going at it hard with Super Street Fighter IV will find a new costume pack available for a handful of fighters worth your while. Outside of that and the usual Rock Band and Guitar Hero updates there really isn’t much to get excited about.
Nevertheless we have poured through the list so that you can unearth any potential gems that may be to your liking. Happy hunting.
To tell the truth, it’s another pretty lacklustre update this week, but it’s just about saved by the minis release of the awesomely addictive puzzler, Angry Birds.
Other content that might be worth a look includes the PSone classic Tomb Raider: Chronicles, the Linkin Park track pack for Rock Band, and it’s also nice to see the DC Universe Online subscriptions (even if they are outrageously priced).
However, the good news is that we’re promised a big January sale later this month (similar to the festive sale a few weeks ago), which should have everyone ‘very happy’.
We’re also told that ‘six highly-requested Sony published PSone titles’ will be coming to the Store soon (we’re just hoping for the three original Spyro games, which still haven’t been released on the European Store), so get speculating now.
