PlayStation Store Update 9/4

on September 4, 2009 1:37 AM

Well everyone, this is my first official PlayStation Store update post for the Dualshockers, so I hope that you will all wait for this every week with great anticipation. First and foremost, the newest issue of Qore is out, and with it, is MAG beta keys for all subscribers. This will include anyone who was registered before September 17th. Also, as expected, Sony has released a new batch of Dynamic Themes, including PAIN, High Velocity Bowling, and PixelJunk Monsters themes.

As far as everything else, this update looks rather sparse. Seeing Guitar Hero and Rockband updates every week is nice, but it gets old. A few new PAIN characters for all you masochists out there. However, I really have a problem with Capcom’s bundles that they have released as well, it just seems like it contains some weaker games. I think that if a company were to release a bundle, they should make it contain actual GOOD games.

I would recommend that you all start subscribing to Qore and join yours truly in some MAG beta later this month! See you all next week, and hopefully I will have internet in class so I can post this closer to the ACTUAL update. Store Update after the break!
