I know for many of you this week couldn’t come soon enough (myself included), as this week sees the release of the brilliant Battlefield 1943. For those of you who enjoy a good session of online multiplayer shooter action, this is a great new addition to the genre, and set against such beautiful backdrops too.
This week we also have two demos available for you to try, we finally have Ghostbusters on the store (a game which needs no introduction from me), and we also have a demo for the epic racing game Fuel.
The second expansion pack for MotorStorm: Pacific Rift is available this week too, as well some extra content for Skate 2, High Velocity Bowling, Dynasty Warriors 6 Empires, and as usual extra tracks for Guitar Hero: World Tour and Rock Band. There are also a handful of additional PSP games available for download now too.
Right, off to the battlefield!
Downloadable Games (Trial and unlock)
Battlefield 1943 (Trial free, unlock key £9.99/€12.99)
You can explore the beautiful pacific islands by land, air and sea as you take the fight to the enemy. Battlefield 1943 features a great mix of both infantry and vehicle combat. You can also call in, and guide airstrikes upon the enemy bases and choose from a range of weaponry to gain the upper hand on the enemy team and win the day.
