PSN Store Update Feb/11/2010 – The Heavy Rain edition
This week’s update is highlighted by a spattering of Sony exclusive demos, most importantly with the greatly anticipated (at least on my part) Heavy Rain for the PS3. The PSP rounds out the demos with SOCOM Fireteam Bravo 3 and the Echochrome spinoff echoshift.
Other than that, there are a bunch of new dynamic themes featuring PSN exclusive titles Flower (celebrating it’s one year birthday), Trash Panic and Wipeout HD. There also price drops and special offer galore with Burnout Paradise Complete Edition for $20, Valkyria Chronicles DLC pack for $10, Trine for $10, and the much adored Patapon 2 for $15 (permanent).
As for Playstation Home, be sure to check out the newly re-skinned Singstar space in spirit of Valentines, along with the new Warhawk personal space and a SOCOM item giveaway at the Playstation Theatre.
So forget about your Valentine this weekend…spend some time where your heart really is….on video games (sad). Sean C.
