‘Heads-Up’ Game Store And PlayStation Plus Update: 7th September 2011

Store_070911

Hi everyone – a long intro from me today, lots of housekeeping and new things to tell you about, but let’s kick off with the third title in the PLAY promotion – Bloodrayne: Betrayal launches today.

The original video game femme fatale, Rayne, has returned to battle and feed in a brand new hack ‘n slash adventure. Slay ghastly enemies as Rayne, the sexy dhampir with superhuman strength, speed, and agility, recruited by the vampire hunting Brimstone Society for one last mission. The target is a lavish, yet sinister ball in a secluded castle with plenty of dark and gruesome surprises. With the help of a mysterious friend, and members of Brimstone, Rayne must infiltrate the manor, take out the fiendish horde, and stop an evil master plot once and for all.

Bloodrayne: Betrayal is available this week in all locales except for New Zealand (Majesco are finalising the OFLC rating for this title in NZ and we will be able to bring it to you next week).

Also, Italian consumers can this week begin to take part in the PLAY promotion – Street Fighter III: Third Strike, The Baconing and Bloodrayne: Betrayal are all launching on the Italian Store and you can now purchase any of these titles and if you purchase all four, become eligible to receive your reward copy of PAYDAY: The Heist.

SNK bring us a whole host of new minis this week as well – with more on the way. These classic titles from the arcade era are now available for you to enjoy either on PS3 or PSP – Guerilla Wars is free for Plus and all the other titles (and those still on the way) will be available at 20% off for our subscribers too.

Also this week we have plenty of other choice morsels for you, including the slightly delayed God of War Collection: Volume II demo – Kratos’ PSP adventures have been upscaled and brought to life on PS3 for the first time. The eu.playstation.com team has put together a demo guide for you to check out, so make sure to head on over there to get the inside track.

You’ve probably already seen Andy’s post about the second round of PSP titles for the big PSP Power Sale, including the launch offer for Persona 3: Portable. Disney were kind enough to include Lego Pirates of the Caribbean in the sale too, to commemorate the launch of Pirates of the Caribbean 4: On Stranger Tides on the Video Store on 12th September.

Another quick note regarding Automatic Update – the SCEI team are aware of the issues that you guys have been having since the firmware update and there will be an interim update to fix the issue coming later in September – please keep a look out for this and when I can update you with an exact date we’ll let you know.

That’s all from me for now – check out the content lists for Plus and the Store Update below and both Andy and myself will be around for comments both today and tomorrow – unfortunately my workload has yet to let up and keeping you guys informed is going to take the both of us!

See you all later on, have a great week.
