P*N’s PSN Weekly Recap

Hello everyone! So I’m going to start posting every Thursday the highlights of that weeks new content on the PSN Store (if you can think of a snappy title please let me know)!  And what a week to start!


The real only highlight I can see on the list below is the F.E.A.R. 2 demo that was only previously available to Qore #8 owners.  But there is other content released and another demo that was available today is the Wipeout HD demo.  It sure is nice to see a demo released for a $20 downloadable only game that people would have already bought if at all interested in.  Also if it was just more timely it would seem more relevant but as Wipeout HD was released last September it is easily overlooked!

And then there is the highly controversial DLC that was released for Skate 2, that allows you to unlock EVERYTHING in the game for $4.99, but that is a topic to be continued on in Krazy XP’s recent post.  One little known fact:  this DLC was not available on the PSN at the same time as the 360.  When I read and commented on that post it was the only piece of content listed below that was not available.  But it is now!

There is the usual Rock Band, and the occasional Guitar Hero DLC, but that is going to be covered in another, upcoming weekly feature here on P*N.  So until next time you can read the full list of this week PSN Update straight from the Playstation Blog below and as times are tight for most of us gamers it appears it is a week to keep the virtual PSN Funds in the virtual PSN wallet!

Hey, everyone. It’s time again for the weekly PlayStation Store update.
