To quote: We're very happy today to announce that SOCOM 4: U.S. Navy SEALs is now offering free maps and weapons to all PS Plus users!
You might remember that we gave away the classic SOCOM map "Abandoned" and a couple of exclusive shotguns as an incentive to pre-order the game through GameStop. All PlayStation Plus users can now download "Abandoned" and the shotguns free for the next month!
For those of you without Plus yet, don't worry-your time will come shortly. Recall the blog announcement a couple weeks back announcing that, as a token of appreciation, the PlayStation Network will be giving all users 30 days free PlayStation Plus membership, coming soon. After a month of PlayStation Plus availability, "Abandoned" and the shotguns will continue to be available for SOCOM Pro members.
But that's not all. When we announced SOCOM Pro shortly before SOCOM 4: U.S. Navy SEALs hit stores, we promised that we'd be delivering the oft-requested M16 and AK-47 shortly after release. We're happy today to not only say that they're almost here, but that they're being...

132w ago - SCEE's Ross McGrath of the PlayStation Store Team is here with the first European PSN Game Store update today since PlayStation Network went back online, as follows:
It's short and sweet from me today guys, but let me just say I'm very glad to be back with you all again.
This is the first batch of new PSN Store content for your downloadable pleasure; expect further updates from me as we release more content onto the Store.
I know a lot of you were asking and I can confirm that the Spring Offers from April will continue until June 8th, so if you missed out before we went away then you've still got a chance to grab a bargain.
Alongside those offers, EA are running a FIFA 11 Ultimate team promotion - any FIFA 11 fans should check out the offers and there will be a dedicated post going live with more information. If you haven't already, you can grab yourself a free copy of FIFA 11 Ultimate Team from the Store.
That's all from me for now, but expect more soon. Enjoy!
