PlayStation Store Update 9/24
Hey everyone, another week, another update with yours truly! This week it looks like Sony is still in the giving mood, more titles have been getting a price reduction, which is good for all of our wallets. However, to my dismay, Sony if offering paid themes only this week, which is a huge drag.
On the PS3 front this week, we have yet another zombie game… at least it has a free demo… Expect a review of Zombie Apocalypse in the next few days. There is a demo for Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 as well, so you can all bask in the lessened violence glory that is Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2. Other notable demos are Lost Planet 2 and Wolfenstein. Huge week for DLC as we are getting yet another installment of FREE Batman Arkham Asylum DLC. Also we are receiving the Broken Steel expansion for Fallout 3, so dust off your copy of Fallout 3 for more hours of enjoyment!
On the PSP front, we have some great stuff this week as well. We are getting Valhalla Knights, which looks like an interesting title. The highlight of the PSP update, for me at least, is the Power Stone Collection. This game brings back great memories of beating the crap out of all my buddies in this amazingly fun brawler. A ton of full games for download this week, probably to give adopters of the Go an extensive library of titles. Also we are getting a demo of Half Minute Hero, which is definitely something no one wants their girlfriend to call them. All jokes aside, this looks like a very innovative title. This week definitely brought us a great update, now go spend some money!
