PlayStation Store Global Update for 12/17/09


PlayStation Store Global Update 12/17/09

This week’s highlight looks to be the Gran Turismo 5 Time Trial, which comes in at only 219MB, so it won’t take up too much hard drive space (I’m getting down to the nitty gritty and am in need of a replacement haha). There’s also a bunch of sales going on in EU store, though most are for add-on packs. For those interested in co-op gameplay, the new demo for Army of Two: the 40th Day hits the store as well. Oh, and the release of Blue Toad Murder Files also happens today (at least, in the EU store), as well as the Metal Gear Solid Peace Walker demo for the PSP. What interests you this week?

UPDATE: The US update is up and Final Fantasy VIII is available for purchase as well.

    thats a crazy large update

  2. #2 by Trieloth on December 17th, 2009 [ 3426 Points ]

    Wizardry: The Labyrinth of Lost Souls looks cool, hopefully it shows up in the states. Iam a fan of the originals. But yet again no premium Avatars. Why did they even bother with that update?

  3. #3 by Royalty32 on December 18th, 2009

    Man, I downloaded GT5 and Ao2 ande let me tell u, what a waste. Im not really a racing type of gamer but everybody been talking about GT5 so i had to check it out for my self. The graphics are out of this world. The cars are so realistic its crazy. If u like driving games get this asap. Now its a different story with Aof2. First off you cant play solo, WTF!!! You have to make an EA account then either play online co-op or split screen which is complete bullshit. Dont waste your time unless u have a buddy to play wit.

    Bummer that there’s still no Trophy update for MGS4. Would have been nice to release it with the other MGS content.

    Some good things in this update. I was disappointed that Minis aren’t available for PS3 yet, I tried downloading one on the PS3 but it just tries to install it to the PSP, rather than playing it.

    Also no comics for Canucks. Maybe I should create a fake US account and see if that works (are the free ones DRM free?)

    Awsome! Wonderful PSN updates.
