'Heads-Up' Game Store Update 9th March 2011

Well, Back to the Future is finally here… sorry about the wait but it took us this long to generate the necessary 1.21 gigawatts of electricity to publish the game. You can download the trial right now and enjoy a snack sized section of the first episode and unlocking will provide the whole first episode of the 5-part series, with access to each new episode as it’s released.

Explodemon gets the trial and unlock treatment for anyone who was still undecided, and Bionic Commando 2 gets a demo too.

DLC – there’s loads for Def Jam, plenty for Rock Band and the Dragon Age 2 pre-order add-ons launch (for real this time). Even More Animals for LittleBigPlanet 2 drops this week as well, marking the first of the commercially available LBP2 DLC – and certainly not the last. There are free costumes for Yakuza 4, a pack for Porsche lovers hits NFS: Hot Pursuit and the first piece of premium DLC for Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood drops today as well – the Da Vinci Disappearance. No prizes for guessing the plot synopsis but it has single and multiplayer content for Ezio’s last outing.

Williams Pinball Classics finally hits PSP, a must have for all pinball fans and at about €1.49 a table there’s some excellent value to be had.

More for PSP this week as well in the shape of three new NEOGEO Station titles, a new mini – Doodle Pool – and Tomb Raider III joins our PSOne Classics collection.

A quick note on behalf of Mr. Thorpe – there are new avatars going into plus today that are free and/or exclusive, for KillZone 3 and also for MotorStorm: Apocalypse. And let’s not forget the Mortal Kombat demo!

We’re aiming to publish at 1pm GMT today so hopefully we’ll be publishing as you read this. It’s a good thing too because I’m in a staff meeting all afternoon, but after my poor showing last week I’ve set myself a full two hours tomorrow morning to sit down and do nothing but comment on your posts – so check back tomorrow afternoon for replies.

I’ve got a hint about what’s coming next week too. It’s really powerful. Especially against living things.

(I’m so excited!)
