‘Heads-Up’ PlayStation Store Update (19th May 2010)

271 58

Good day to you all, I bring you salutations of the day, and lots of ModNation Racers goodies! I have no qualms in telling you all I have become a huge zealot of this game, and will take every opportunity to tell people about how great it is :-)

Not only does the PSP version of the game appear on the store, but we have demos for the PS3 and PSP versions, as well as the Van Man Mod and Kart pack for PS3. There really is no excuse this week not to try your hand at this great mix of sublime kart racing, and the deep creation tools at your disposal.

Of course, there’s other content available on the store this week. For PSP users there are a further two games available, featuring princes and mech-suits, though not combined (I’m sure there’s a new market for someone to tap into right there), as well as more content for Buzz! and LittleBigPlanet. Also, our friends at Futurlab release their mini title Coconut Dodge onto the store too, if you haven’t heard of this already, you could do far worse than reading the three part series they’ve written here on the blog.

For the full list, you know what to do; have a butchers’ further down this post.

(Some of you may want to take note of the additional territory releases section at the bottom of the post too).

See you in the comments section!
