‘Heads-Up’ Game Store Update 8th February 2012

Hello and welcome to a new week of updates to the PlayStation Store!

Shank2_FeaturedImage_PVWIMG

On this fine winter’s week (maybe not for all of you!) we bring to you a smattering of more gaming goodness. Shank 2 comes to the store courtesy of EA. Returning with its comic book aesthetics and side-scrolling brawler gameplay, Shank is back! In fact, IGN have reported it as “One of the best action games in recent memory”!

Malicious_FeaturedImage_PVWIMG

Malicious also sees an English release on the store. Take control of the Spirit Vessel and battle waves of brutal fighters and colossal enemies to rid the world of the evil force of Malicious. Gain new weapons, build your powers and perform devastating combo attacks as the final showdown between good and evil draws near. PS Plus members will benefit from a 20% reduced cost.
The Simpsons Arcade Game sees release on the store today, too. We know you guys were expecting to see this last week and apologise for the inconvenience however, now you can enjoy it in all its glory. As was also announced, Plus members will receive this as part of this month’s membership. Enjoy!
We also have Mortal Kombat (2011), Top Spin 4 and Mafia II all heading to the digital fun land that is the PlayStation Store. Catherine will also be available on the store from February 10th, in line with the retail release, so keep a look out for that!
For DLC we have more Rock Band tunes, more Dynasty Warriors and the Lightning DLC for Final Fantasy XIII-2. There’s even some Valentine’s Day themed DLC for LittleBigPlanet and Motorstorm. Isn’t that romantic!
Unfortunately there aren’t any avatars this week but hopefully there’ll be some for you avatar lovers next week.
The PSP Power Sale continues this week, with more additions including but not limited to; Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars, Worms: Battle Island and the first Persona game…called Persona, believe it or not. Check out the rest of what’s on offer below.
As usual, the complete list of games, DLC and offers follows below.
Have a jolly ol’ time gaming and I shall return next week!
Peace!

FAQ

1. Has Arc the Lad (PSOne Classics) been released in Norway yet?
A. Yes! Apologies to Norwegian customers who had to wait a little extra for this.
2. Are we getting Machinarium?
A. Yes. We don’t have a date to announce right now but this is on the horizon.
3. How about Auditorium HD?
A. This is also on the horizon but no date to speak of right now. Sorry.
4. Where on Earth is Worms: Ultimate Mayhem?
A. This has been announced for February 15th. Please look forward to it.
5. What about Dungeon Defenders DLC?
A. Some content is coming very soon! Next week is very likely.
6. How about Dynasty Warriors avatars?
A. Avatars are not the quickest content we release so these won’t be out for a long, long time. If we have further information about this we will let you guys know.
7. OMG! Where’s Scary Girl?
A. OMG! Coming next week!
8. And House of the Dead III?
A. Next week is the plan! But remember, things can change unexpectedly…
9. Why are there differences in avatars from the US compared to the EU region?
A. The images used are up to the publisher. As the EU includes a wide range of countries, different rules also need to be adhered to so not everything will be like for like.
