118w ago - SCEE's Ross McGrath of the PlayStation Store Team has shared the new European PlayStation Game Store updates today, as follows:
Hi everyone, it's Store update day and the second title in the PlayStation Network PLAY series is released today - The Baconing - the third instalment in the saga of Deathspank, defender of the downtrodden and thong enthusiast.
You are DeathSpank, a hero and the ultimate Dispenser of Justice. You must defeat the Anti-Spank and his army of Cyborques, before they cast an evil shadow over Spanktopia. Discover exciting new worlds and battle hordes of enemies as you search to unlock the secret within the Fires of Bacon.
Your free gift with this title is an extra character, Roesha, who will be available to download from next week's publish - you can grab it from the PLAY Offer section on the Store, where you'll also be able to pick up your pre-orders.
Also new this week, we have Elevator Action Deluxe from Square Enix, a retro-reboot of the classic spy, document collecting arcade game from days of yore. Well, 1983 was not quite the days of yore but it was a long time ago in videogames! The original arcade game is included in this release so you can see what all the fuss was about.
121w ago - SCEE's Ross McGrath of PlayStation Store Team is here with this weeks European PSN Game Store and PlayStation Plus updates today!
To quote: Yes, it's the one-stop shop for Store Updates and Plus content information and we've got it all this week, folks.
Let's talk Plus - The new service update today bringing the firmware to 3.70 improves your Automatic Downloads service, renaming it Automatic Update. Automatic Update will now automatically sync selected save games to your cloud storage and will also automatically sync your trophies with the server each time auto update runs.
And what of new Plus content you say?
We've got the small matter of the Resistance 3 Plus Beta which you play until early September; we've got day-one discounts and exclusive content for Splinter Cell's triumphant HD return to PlayStation; you've got 20% off the much anticipated and finally actually here Spelunker HD; you've got discounts on the new Worms 2: Armageddon DLC (the full game of which is already 50% off this month in Plus) and as well as 20% off five new The Studio themes and lest we forget friends, the pre-orders for our PLAY titles launch today with 20% off each. And we're not done for August yet either.
And onto the Store Update! As well as the previously...
125w ago - SCEE's Ross McGrath is here with this weeks European PlayStation Store updates today, as follows:
Dead Nation is now available to try before you buy, in case you were still on the fence, and we've also got a demo for PixelJunk Shooter 2, so you can now give that a whirl with no money down.
There's also some pretty awesome DLC coming today in the form of a new case for LA Noire, and the 'anticipated for as long as I can remember and incredibly awesome' Final Fantasy VII character costumes for LBP2!
A quiet one this week then, sorry about that. Hopefully there are some bits and pieces for you here and now, and if not you can save your pennies for the release of Limbo on the 20th.
I'll be around for comments from tomorrow morning as I'm working on some promotions for you lovely people this afternoon, but since it's a quiet week for you all, hand on heart I'll make time to respond to lots of your questions. See you later!
