European PS Store Update for March 9 – Yet another avalanche of avatars

Submitted by on Thursday, 10 March 2011One Comment

This week the cupboards are rather bare. No new games to speak of aside from the trial and unlock for Back to the Future: The Game.

If you’ve noticed that you and your current avatar have grown apart over time and the mere sight of Crash Bandicoot’s face evokes a nauseous feeling, you are in luck my friend. Brand spanking new avatars featuring Killzone 3, Grand Theft Auto IV and Red Dead Redemption are now available. A perfect rebound.

As per usual there is a hefty amount of add-on content hitting the store. Perhaps you will unearth something that strikes your fancy. Happy hunting.

Content available in all locales unless otherwise noted.
