PSN Store Update (Feb/04/2010) – The make.believe edition

We’re starting to get back on the busy side of things with this week’s Playstation Store update consisting of high profile demos: Battlefield: Bad Company 2 (multiplayer), Alien vs. Predator, Dynasty Warriors: Strikeforce (not to be confused with the already released PSP version) and Fret Nice.  Speaking of the last mentioned demo, Fret Nice (pictured above) also gets a full release this week and is a quirky 2D rhythm based platformer that can be fully controlled by your Guitar peripheral.

It’s also a busy week for original video content (even in Canada!) as episode 21 of Qore arrives as they talk to Yakuza 3 developer Toshihiro Nagoshi and visit Resonance of Fate (and Star Ocean) development studio Tri-Ace.  Not shown in the listing is a series of videos from Sony’s “make.beleive” campaign where each short film explores how different Sony products play a part in achieving each respective ( and real) person’s success.    Sean.C
