European PSN Store update for May 1, 2008

50°
346w ago - So far since the launch of the new PS Store, European has seen it's fair share of good quality updates. Certainly, the situation appears to be much better than before and SCEE seem to be coming good on their promise that they would 'sort the situation out' by the Summer.

It would be a shame, therefore, to see a lacklustre update this week, wouldn't it?

Here's the full list of available items:

Games:

Ape Quest (£8.99)

Add-ons:

Need for Speed Pro Street - Bugatti Veyron (£1.99)
Need for Speed Pro Street - Mclaren F1 (£1.99)
Need for Speed Pro Street - Premium Car Pack (£3.49)
Need for Speed Pro Street - Premium Car Pack 2 (£3.49)
Snakeball - Team Mode Pack (£1.99)
Kane & Lynch - Fragile Alliance Maps (free)

Demos (all free):

Ape Quest Starter Pack

Videos (all free):

Ironman movie trailer

Wallpapers and Themes (all free):

Rainbow Six Vegas 2 Theme
Dark Sector Theme
Haze Theme
Haze Wallpaper

Obviously, anyone still playing Kane & Lynch can't complain about the value for money the extra map pack represents, but the big news of the week has to be Ape Quest.

Including the instantly recognisable characters...
 

Latest word on the Burnout Paradise Cagney update!

50°
347w ago - In Cagney we've changed how the cars are grouped for Ranked Racing. Previously, cars were grouped by their License Grade. In future we're categorising them according to their Boost Group where cars are grouped according to their top speed.

In races, the choice of a Boost Group will make available all cars in that group plus any cars in lower groups. This has proven to work really well as we have had some really mixed grids and close races with no single car having a clear advantage.

If you haven't unlocked a car in a particular Boost Group then we'll loan you a car for that race.

The car we loan you will be the next car you'll be able to unlock in that Boost Group (excluding Carbon and Burning Route cars.) Because all of the cars in Boost Group 10 are Carbon or Burning Route Cars, we'll loan you the 500GT from Boost Group 9.

The Cagney update has also revamped the audio for nearly all vehicles, features include: sirens on police vehicles, new cars, new cultiplaer challenges and much more!
 

Grand Theft Auto 4 Sells 2.5 million in the Americas on Day 1

100°
347w ago - VG Chartz has today announced that according to their early sell-through data, Grand Theft Auto 4 has sold a record 2.5 million units in its first day of sales.

GTA IV has been universally acclaimed upon release and the titles day 1 sales places the title in the upper echelon of industry hits - those that are universally loved by both critics and by casual gamers.

Data for the first day of GTAIV sales shows that the game sold roughly at a 6:4 ratio in favor of Xbox 360 to PS3 in the Americas. While that means the game sold better on Xbox 360, it had a higher attach rate on PS3 - the same story was the case in the UK according to an earlier report by Chart Track.

At $60 per unit for the standard game and $90 for the special edition and around 1/4 of all games bought being at the higher price, Rockstar is looking at around $170 million in day one Americas revenue. For comparison, Microsoft stated that Halo 3 saw $170 million in sales revenue day one so it seems at this point the combined Xbox 360 and PS3 sales for GTA IV are about on par with Halo 3.

Super Smash Brothers Brawl recently sold over 900,000 units in the Americas day one and went on to sell almost 1.6 million units week one. A similar pattern for GTAIV would push the title to over 4 million units in the Americas for week...
 

Grand Theft Auto IV Multiplayer Back Online!

100°
347w ago - If you didn't know, Grand Theft Auto IV on the PlayStation 3 has been having some online issues. We are happy to say the game is back online and can now be played in multiplayer matches.

What are you waiting for, get off onAXIS and go play on of the fourteen multiplayer modes. Yes, fourteen.

Although I got to say, now that I'm finally online I am a bit disappointed with the character creation. There is so little choice (roughly 4 choice to select for each piece of body wear and face).

I'm not that far in, but do you unlock more for your online character as you progress through the game?
