‘Heads-Up’ PlayStation Store Update (5th May 2010)

811 23

So, today’s historic occasion has arrived; the first Wednesday store update. I didn’t go overboard with the goodbyes to Thursday updates last week, because it was just so sad, I was on the verge of breaking down. It’s all about looking forwards to the shiny new store update day instead.

To celebrate this ‘kick-ass’ occasion, ahem, we have available the game version of the comic and film hit, Kick-Ass (please note, whilst this initial release is for the English language stores only, all other locales will be getting it released in due course). We also have two other full games available this week in the form of Anarchy: Rush Hour and Feeding Frenzy 2, whilst for PSP users you’ll be able to get to grips with R-Type Tactics.

We also have two massive demos for you this week, for the forthcoming titles UFC Undisputed 2010, and Split/Second: Velocity, and we also have the first expansion for the PSN exclusive title Burn Zombie Burn!, and it’s set in space, what more do you need? :-)

Finally; The Stimulus Pack is here! Not sure if you’ve heard of this? Of course you have, who am I kidding? For those of you who have been itching to get your hands on the new maps for the multiplayer experience of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, now is your chance.

Throw into the mix the Flower soundtrack, a new episode of FirstPlay, new themes and avatars, and more add-ons, and that’s your first Wednesday update.

Let me know how that grabs you in the comments section as usual.

Cheers.
