PlayStation Store Update 9/17

on September 17, 2009 8:03 PM

Well, it seems like it is everyone’s favorite time of the week once more. This week is a relatively mediocre update. Sony shows us that we can’t have enough copies of Final Fantasy Tactics, by offereing up as a dowloadable title this week. (Just a word to the wise, if you are tired of them releasing this game, don’t buy it.) There is an update for Lemmings, which includes the trophy patch as well as an extended demo.

Looks like Sony wants save us all a few extra bucks, seeing as there is a price drop on Novastrike and Unbound Saga. Tomb Raider III is being released as a PS1 classic this week, but the question is, will this game still entertain gamers after the introduction of Nathan Drake in our lives?

On the PSP front, we have a State Shift, which is described as a Sci Fi (SyFy) racer. Another one of those eh… deja vu anyone? Speak of the devil, a Wipeout Pulse video as well. Koei also is releasing their 5th DLC pack for Dynasty Warriors Strikeforce, Koei is even kind enough to make this pack include all of the others. Like I said, nothing really stand out this week. Enjoy!

Updates

Lemmings Update
Lemmings has been updated with a patch and a refreshed version for the PlayStation Store. Both the patch and store version contains the same new features to Lemmings which include Trophies and rumble support. For those of you with the demo or who maybe thinking about the demo, we have now included an extra two free levels. So it’s definitely worth taking a look at.
