‘Heads-Up’ Game Store Update January 18 2012

309 0

Hello everybody! Before we start this week’s ‘Heads-Up’ I have an announcement to make, this will be the last time I will write for the PSN Store weekly blog post… However, this leads on to some great news because I am delighted to announce that, as of today, I will be passing on the mighty blog keyboard to the newest member of the PlayStation Store team, Jawad Ashraf. I will still be assisting him with comments but Jawad will have more time dedicated to try and get the answers you want. Jawad, over to you!
Hello everyone! I am delighted to be welcomed on board the team and I hope this can only mean an even better service for you, our customers. Without me rambling too long, let’s get on with this week’s updates.
To kick things off, Arc the Lad (yes, Arc the Lad!) is now on the store for everyone to enjoy, and if you’re a PlayStation Plus member it’ll be free for a whole month. For PS3 we have Splinter Cell Double Agent. You take on the role of Sam Fisher. In order to stop an attack on American soil, you must infiltrate and destroy a vicious terrorist group. As a double agent you decide what you want to do – which side do you fight for?
Uncharted fans will be happy to know we have the Flashback Map Pack released this week. This was part of the Fortune Hunter Club and is now available to non-members. The pack includes the following multiplayer maps – Sanctuary, Fort, Cave and Lost City. Be sure to pick this up!
We also have DLC including more costume packs for Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3. Dress Chun-Li in her Alpha costume (part of the Femme Fatale pack) or Sentinel in his classic rendition (part of the New Age of Heroes pack).
And because Chinese New Year is also upon us, there’s a free costume to obtain for LittleBigPlanet 2 to celebrate. Oh, and this is available for only one week so hurry, hurry, hurry!
To continue with what was started last week, we’ve also got the FAQ at the end of this post for some of last week’s major questions. If we didn’t answer this week then hopefully it’ll be next week, but do keep asking!
If there isn’t anything taking your fancy then hopefully next week will. Look forward to it! Until then, happy gaming!
