174w ago - Following hot on the heels of the US PSN update, today SCEE PlayStation Store Manager Mike Kebby has announced this weeks additions to the European PSN update as follows:
Yesterday we released the first add-on content pack for Red Dead Redemption. Legends And Killers adds new multiplayer elements, such as additional characters and the new tomahawk weapon, and for those of you looking to add some fresh content to your online gunslinging, now's your chance.
There's a few titles released for your PSP this week too, and leading the charge is the first in the Shin Megami Tensei: Persona series, so get prepared to finely hone those demon collection skills, in this renowned RPG.
The final piece of content I want to highlight is the demo for Mafia II. I managed to spend some time with the team at 2K last week and get my hands on the demo, and had a jolly old time.
I played the same demo you'll all be able to get your hands on today, so I won't say anything else in case I spoil it, but let me say this - you'll have a ten minute countdown of free-roam before you have to reach the mission checkpoint, so make the most of cruising round and seeing how much chaos you can cause
Okay, that's enough of me, now to the matter at hand... the full list. Enjoy!
