Feed me! Time to stuff royalty with magic cake; we know you have been waiting for it. Why do we know this, because so have we.
Lost in the cake excitement is the second part of Watchmen: The End is Nigh. At the same price of Fat Princess, PS3 Attitude predicts that Princess will win the popular vote by a landslide.
“Hang on! What day is it? Wednesday? But that makes no sense, store update articles normally arrive on Thursdays!”
If that is what you’re thinking, fear not, you haven’t lost your mind. What appears to be a new regular activity, SCEE are going to start announcing the contents for store updates the day before release so here it is for you.
You guys and gals know about Shatter, you were waiting for Napalm & Cordite, ready for the Fury add-on but there’s just so much more.
Call of Duty: World at War gets a demo for those too busy playing Call of Duty 4 to care about it at launch, WILD ARMS 2 is the star of the two PSone Classics released today, Cross Edge keeps throwing free packs at you while Dynasty Warriors 6 Empires tries to keep up.
Now this is more like it. Games, demos, and add-ons that everyone can enjoy! And by ‘demos’ I mean only one of them. Of course you could argue that any update that has new content for both WipEout HD and Killzone 2 would be a good one regardless of what else comes out that week, but nobody likes a smart ass. Maybe a donkey with math homework would like a smart ass, but that’s another story.
So there’s WipEout and Killzone 2 DLC, but what else is worthy? How about new downloadable games Shatter and Crystal Defenders; the latter beating the North American PS Store to the punch.
Well would you look at that. A very nice North American PlayStation Store update plus a baker’s half-dozen (that’s seven) of ‘PlayStation Network Favorites’ for a discounted price. Notice how it does not read favourites; this is for North America only. We can just feel a whole continent seething right about now.
But for the lucky ones in the ‘new country’ it’s nothing but love from Sony and the PlayStation gang: one new game, one new PSone classic, three new demos, a new Pulse and a bunch of other add-ons and wallpapers to boot.
Sure, still no Metal Gear Solid 1 or Bomberman, or anything else with ‘weight’ besides the weekly LBP, Rock Band and Guitar Hero World Tour offerings. At least those are not delayed. Oh no, I think I may have jinxed it…
Disney’s Tarzan for the PSone? F-yeah! Themes for the on-again off-again Battlefield 1943? At least you can pretend to play the game while browsing your XMB while cursing EA and DICE. Bonus Mission for The Last Guy? I got it! this update is a clever ploy to get all of Europe to buy The Last Guy DLC in frustration. Is it working? But seriously, The Last Guy rules.
Buzz Jr. Robo Jam will keep those wireless buzzers dust free for a while, and today’s PSone Classics may bring a nostalgic tear to your eye. Who ya gonna call when the BF 1943 servers crap out? The Ghostbusters demo, that’s who.
Today’s additional game content includes Motorstorm, Cross Edge (mostly free), Dynasty Warriors 6 Empires (completely free), Midnight club L.A. and Skate 2.
You already broke the servers, so you don’t need us telling you that Battlefield 1943 is out now. Remember your Sun Tzu ladies and gentlemen.
But what else made it today into the European PS Store? Plenty more. Three demos (Battlefield 1943, Ghostbusters and Fuel), additional content for Motorstorm, Skate 2, High Velocity Bowling and Dynasty Warriors 6 Empires.
Did Europe get the superior update this week? They certainly have more downloadable games, a demo and a PSone Classic than North America. However, North America got balls. High Velocity Bowling Ball packs not found in Europe. Coincidence? You be the judge.
Cross Edge gets free items and a free dungeon while 007 Quantum of Solace gets a map pack. All this is exclusive to North America’s PlayStation Store, but is that enough to best Europe? Did they really have the best store update this week?
It may not be the biggest, but it’s pretty good nonetheless. Europe gets its fair share of downloadable games this week with four new downloadable games including Punisher: No Mercy. Red Baron Arcade is the lone demo and James Pond 2 is the lone PSone classic.
MotorStorm gets the long awaited Expansion Speed pack and LBP celebrate USA’s independence with a free ‘Sacktue of Liberty’ costume. Dynasty Warriors 6 represents 200AD with free armour for all.
With nothing to apologize for or explain, the PlayStation.Blog.US sends another solid update our North American way. We hear Europeans are not very happy with the ‘hey, what are ya gonna do?’ response from the European PSB.
We are confident that they will pull through and offer some great content in the future. We also hope they do in the very, very near future lest the people revolt and start playing ColecoVision or something.
Oops, we may have collectively hurt PlayStation.Blog.Europe’s feelings. They felt our cries of anger and disappointment and have asked patience from the European gamer. That may be a tall order; the European PS3 crowd has been very patient over a long period of time. Since 6 September to be precise.
Not quite the same size as last week’s ultra big update, but it can hold its own thanks to the PSOne ultra mega classic Metal Gear Solid. Oh yeah, time to get sneaky like it’s 1998.
Can’t get enough foosball? There’s a demo for you. Want more JRPG than you can shake a review at? Three free packs for you. Crank it up to 11 with Rock Band’s Spinal Tap and Evanescence track packs and waste your money on even more ‘premium’ themes.
After last week’s big one, things have certainly slowed down significantly in the European PS Store update front. Not a big deal, some of us have yet to digest all the content from last week and we got games to play anyway.
Unless you got Rock Band, Guitar Hero, or are really looking forward for some more free MotorStorm livery packs there’s nothing here for you. Except for some cool videos like the Assassin’s Creed commented gameplay trailer, Inferno Pool, inFAMOUS and Mini Ninjas trailers.
