164w ago - SCEE PlayStation Store Manager Mike Kebby is here with this weeks European PSN game store updates today, as follows:
This week's update is going to be a bit different to previous weeks; it'll be a bit more personal than usual... though I'll go into more detail after discussing this week's content.
Tim Schafer's latest creation Costume Quest hits the store this week, and it's the perfect title for unleashing your inner child and embracing Halloween with pure unadulterated joy (that you would usually get scorned for as an adult).
No matter how I try and describe this title I'll most likely do it a disservice, so just check it out and make up your own mind (Ed: you could also watch the video interview with Tim and Tasha Harris here).
Swords and Soliders also joins the ranks this week, and any game that can say (taken straight from the marketing material) "blend ninja monkeys, attacking Aztecs and brutal Vikings with everything you love about real time strategy games and you've got Swords and Soldiers" must be worth a look, right?
Not only does this game have local and online multiplayer, it also supports 3D too, so definitely something for you with swanky 3D TVs to be taking a look at.
166w ago - SCEE PlayStation Store Manager Mike Kebby is here with this weeks European PSN Game Store PS3 and PSP updates today, as follows:
We have one full game for you this week in the form of Ferrari: The Race Challenge.
Fully featured with (up to) 16 player multiplayer, and a single player tiered career mode, you can show off your prowess with a range of some of the best vehicles ever manufactured (no Ferrari didn't pay me to say that).
For your PSP needs we have Phantasy Star Portable 2 available, and the Essentials range keeps growing with nine additions this week (this necessitates an exclamation mark)!
I also feel the need this week to highlight one of the latest minis added to the roster; Ace Armstrong Vs. The Alien Scumbags. Not only is the name fantastic, but it looks like a pretty nifty old-school shooter (like Mum used to make).
Modern Warfare 2 saw a week's price promotion on the Stimulus and Resurgence Packs start yesterday, and we have another week of the recent Special Offers to go.
PlayStation Store (via PS3, PSP and Media Go)
(Offer prices available until the 13th of October)
Savage Moon (was - £6.29/€7.99 now - £3.19/€3.99)
Savage Moon - Waldgeist...
175w ago - Today Ross McGrath of the SCEE PlayStation Store Team has posted up this weeks European PSN update, which comes in to land with a cargo hold full of goodies.
To quote: We'll start with the portable content because along with a PSP version of the recently released Groovin' Blocks, we've got a much requested title - Powered by Namco... it's Ridge Racer! A true classic and still one of the best driving experiences on PSP.
Remember last time you saw me I teased you about one of my favourite PSOne Classics coming to the store? Well brush off your fighting gloves and prepare to beat the heck out of a grown man wearing spandex trousers and a jaguar mask because it's here, it's Tekken 2 and, while it's not quite as fast-paced as more modern fighters, it's still brilliant.
For your TV's best friend we've got a good selection as well - Gundemonium Collection brings the 'bullet hell' genre screaming onto the PSN with three games in one: Gundemonium Recollection; GundeadliGne and Hitogata Happa.
If you feel like punishing your trigger fingers and generally view blinking as a waste of time, these are the games for you. Not convinced you need all three games? Well okay, we'll let you buy them separately too but don't say we never do anything for you.
