‘Heads-Up’ PlayStation Store Update (9th June 2010)

315 0

Good morning; don’t worry you haven’t lost track of time, this post really is up earlier than usual. This is because the store is updating earlier than usual (will be live before lunchtime), and the reason is because there will some PSN maintenance from 16.00 GMT today until tomorrow morning and you will therefore not have access to the store during this time I’m afraid (for more information check the forum post here).
Now the public service announcement is out of the way, it’s onto the task at hand; detailing the store update this week. Most weeks I debate about which decide which content to highlight, because the range of content is always pretty vast, and whilst this week is no different, for me there is one piece of content I really have to bring to your attention. Joe Danger.
This game is a testament to the skills of the team at Hello Games as they have done a truly astounding job of creating a really addictive game. Join Joe as he tries to reclaim his place back at the pinnacle of stunt bike racing; all the while flipping, spinning, pulling off sick combos, and avoiding many hazards, along the way. I’ve been lucky enough to play this already, and it’s got that pure ‘one more go’ factor to it, this game comes highly recommended.
PSP users can now take advantage of the low-priced PSP Essentials range that launches this week, and there’ll be more titles added as the weeks and months roll by. There’s also a new batch of Special Offers this week, including offers on Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket Powered Battles Cars, Greed Corp, Section 8 and more.
The full list as always is below, but surely you all come here for my inane chatter and comments rather than the informative list below right? Right!? :)
You know the drill by now, you leave comments below, and I’ll respond to what I can.
Cheers.
