PSN Update Dec/10/2009 – The Stocking Stuffer edition

Thanks to the PSN the Holiday influx of new playable content is not just yet over.  This week we see the release of the latest in the Pixeljunk series with Pixeljunk Shooter promising to be just as creative yet classic as it’s predecessors.  Also, having recently announced that the PS3 will get the exclusive “Divine Edition” of the upcoming action title Dante’s Inferno, the PSN also gets first crack at the game’s demo this week almost two weeks before it shows up on XBLA.  Other demos come in the form topatoi and Mushroom Wars while full playable content compliments Pixeljunk Shooter with Frogger Returns (yes…that Frogger),  Revenge of the Wounded Dragons, and the PSone classic  Bomberman Party Edition. This week also has the Canadian release of the remaining (but this time paid) installments of the Uncharted motion comic subtitled “Eye of Indra”.

For DLC, we see a free new weapon for inFAMOUS to celebrate the game’s graduation to Greatest Hit’s status (so quickly too!) while other notables include the free Team Racing pack for Need for Speed: SHIFT and the famed nudity unlock for the Saboteur.

For the PSP we get a couple more UMD classics now available for digital download most notably two Konami favorites on the portable with  Castlevania: Dracula X Chronicles and Silent Hill Origins.  With the recent release of PS3 firmware 3.15, PSP minis are now playable in HD on your PS3 giving the collection a whole new purpose; this week we get to more addition to the minis lineup with Stand O’ Food and Battle Poker.  Sean C.
