PlayStation Store Global Update (Week of 05/09/10)


PlayStation Store Global Update 05/09/10

[tab:Highlights]
Well, not too much exciting content this week. For the Spring Fever sale in the US, there are a couple bundles you can pick up for PopCap and Midway. The Split/Second demo that was available in the EU store last week is now available in the US store this week, while the EU gets the Rocket Knight demo (a game I never heard of). The ModNation Racers demo for PSP is also available in the states (there has been confirmation that a PS3 one is coming, and I would guess that will be next week, while I’m busy playing Red Dead Redemption :P).

New episodes of FirstPlay and Qore are also available (FirstPlay is weekly, so that’s no surprise anyway). Minis seem to be releasing a bit more as well, since there’s a handful released every week it seems (but a lot of them are still PSP only). You can also pick up some new Batman: Arkham Asylum DLC (well, they may have been previously exclusive DLC for pre-order or a collector’s edition), as well as the free map packs for the Game of the Year edition, which was released in the states this week. Some BioShock 2 DLC is available as well, including the Rapture Metro (which comes with a couple new trophies as well).

    No purchase from me this week. The forced bundles are just weird and don’t contain anything I’d want even by itself.

  2. #2 by Macdory on May 13th, 2010 [ 3445 Points ]

    What PSN games would you recommend for me to play with my 5 year old?

  3. #3 by Demerson on May 13th, 2010 [ 2814 Points ]

    @Macdory, check out this article: http://www.parenting.com/gear-gallery/Gear/9-Best-Playstation-3-Videogames-For-Your-Kids, there are some good stuff in it.

    Personally, I recommend Flower, Rub a Dub, and basically any game that does not involve a lotta buttons to press.. :D

    Cheers

  5. #5 by EdEN on May 13th, 2010 [ 141876 Points ]

    @Macdory: Not much really to play with someone that young on PSN. Flower is a given and you can also go with Digger HD (try the demo first), maybe play flow and, depending on his eye-hand coordination and level of expertise with videogames, Megaman 10 on Easy mode.

    Thanks EdEN
