‘Heads-Up’ PlayStation Store Update (7th July 2010)

407 0

As one more week passes by, one more week of fresh store content is here to greet you; don’t you love this routine we have. I set out our wares, and you come along and loiter in the aisles, and touch all the merchandise leaving fingerprints everywhere, and then go on your merry way. Sometimes you may even gently abuse me too. It’s all so familiar, and when I’m not around like last week I do miss it. So it’s a pleasure to be back this week.
Anyway, enough inane blathering, I suppose it’s time to follow on with tradition and list the new content, and give you my thoughts on the highlights this week (in no specific order).
The recent monkey loving continues with the release of Monkey Island 2, in all its shiny new glory. This new edition has a new lick of paint, but there is also a wealth of other goodies including the ability to toggle between the new version and the original version (to see just how shiny and lovely the new version actually is) and a fully fledged developer commentary featuring the original creators Tim Schafer, Ron Gilbert and Dave Grossman reminiscing on the making of the game amongst other things. For fans of the classic series this is a great opportunity to rekindle your love, and for anybody who hasn’t played this classic game yet – firstly, what’s wrong with you? – secondly, get it now.
There’s something called a Resurgence pack for a title you may know called Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, I believe it’s some kind of shooty game where you hurt people and then cackle manically down your headset, before giving them a teabag to rub in the humiliation. Ah, how I love a good FPS multiplayer session :D
There’s more additional content goodness in the form of Leliana’s Song for Dragon Age: Origins, and the Marvel costumes and level kit for LittleBigPlanet. We’ve also given the LittleBigPlanet section a late spring clean, and tidied it up, therefore making it easier to rummage through the goodies on offer.
Before, I steer you to the full list of all the content available, allow me mention that the latest batch of Special Offers will be available today too, so for the next two weeks you can grab discounts on some great content, including After Burner Climax, Lead and Gold: Gangs of the Wild West and Half Minute Hero.
That’s enough hawking the wares for now, as usual if you so desire leave a comment and we’ll go from there.
Cheers.
