PlayStation Store Update 9/10

on September 10, 2009 7:10 PM

This week’s update is one that will spark a sense of nostalgia amongst those of you that grew up with the Ninja Turtles franchise. Turtles in Time is being released on the PSN, and I will be downloading and reviewing that one, so stay tuned for that. Also, Legacy of Kain and Silent Hill are two very noteworthy PS1 Classics releases. On the PSP front, we are getting Wipeout Pulse and Wild Arms XF.

As far as add on content goes, we have so noteworthy releases as well. George Takai, of Star Trek fame, will be released as a PAIN character for download. Red Faction players can rejoice as well, with the release of Map Pack 2. For those of you not in the know, this last weekend was PAX, and there is a Rockband PAX track pack being released and it features Jonathan Coulton!

As many of you know, I am a lover of Christina Lee, and this week we are graced with another episode of Pulse. The big downside is the inclusion of so many paid themes. This week’s update is definitely one that will not disappoint. So check out the full update, then give Sony your money, but remember, only do so with a smile\.
