True story: yesterday I spent all day constantly refreshing the Sony Store just to find the free Uncharted 2 map. Come to find out, it’s a live update applied through the actual game!

Dubbed “The Fort”, Sony notes that “it’s a long rectangular map with wide open spaces and excellent flank routes.” You’ll also earn double cash just for playing this weekend, so hop to it. Uncharted 2 shouldn’t be out of your PS3 anyway.

Oh look, it’s another lackluster load for us poor Europeans on the PSN Storefront. As our American cousins will no doubt be gorging over Thanksgiving, we have been left with very few pickings, with the likes of playable demos for Comet Crash and Mushroom Wars, some downloadable content for Borderlands and Fallout 3 and a limited edition (read: overpriced) virtual t-shirt for LittleBigPlanet to munch on.

Nevertheless, as always, the full update can viewed after the break.

Fans of Need For Speed: Shift are in for a tasty treat, as a free downloadable “Legendary Car Pack is being prepared for release on December 1st for Xbox 360 owners and December 3rd for PS3 owners in Europe. PS3 players in North America will lag behind for a change until December 10th, however. The pack is set to feature the following vehicles:

  • 1967 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray 427
  • 1967 Shelby GT-500 (Eleanor from Gone in 60 Seconds, but not the right one)
  • 1969 Dodge Charger R/T
  • 1971 Dodge Challenger R/T
  • 1998 Toyota Supra Mark IV

In addition, the DLC will also include a new Team Racing mode, whereby two teams of up to six players can compete against each other online. Not a bad deal, when you consider Midnight Club: Los Angeles previously offered similar car packs for a fee, although it has recently been offering free bonus packs of police cars.

You can view a demonstration of this new mode in a newly released trailer after the jump, complete with the usual nauseating narrator.

Rejoice! Things have started to improve after the last few pitiful offerings on the PSN Store, as this week there’s the playable delights of Critter Crunch and PS1 classic Metal Gear Solid, along with LittleBigPlanet for the PSP and some downloadable content for Dragon Age and Beatles: Rock Band. Oh, and a playable demo for a game that came out 3 months ago.

Also, don’t forget that the new 3.10 update is now live which includes the long awaited Facebook integration if you happen to be nerdy enough to display your gaming achievements to all and sundry. The new European movie store is also finally here – it only took over a year after the yanks.

Take a peek at this week’s update in full after the break.

peggle-nights-title

Today casual games giant PopCap announced that the Xbox Live Arcade version of Peggle will be receiving some downloadable content.

The DLC that’s arriving is in fact the PC sequel, Peggle Nights. Slated to arrive November 18, Peggle Nights packs sixty levels of peg popping puzzles. The best part is that expansion is only 400 Microsoft Points ($5), a bargain considering the sequel retails for $9.99 on the PC. Read more… »

It’s another light load this week on the storefront, but who honestly cares? Everyone is too engrossed committing airport massacres in a certain war game. Argh, that’s yet another post clogging up the homepage that mentions that game. Oh well.

For those like myself who don’t have such distractions (yes I’m waiting until Christmas), this week’s shallow PSN update can be found after the break.

It’s an unremarkable update this week for the European Playstation Store, unless you are enticed by NBA 2K10 which is the only available playable demo. There’s the usual raft of DLC including some free goodies for Brutal Legend and LittleBigPlanet to celebrate its first anniversary, but not much else. Still, there’s always Party Time with Winnie The Pooh.

You can view a full lowdown on this week’s content in the usual place.

tf2 scary

I absolutely love it when game developers get into the Halloween spirit. Usually they send out funny little press releases or Halloween themed trailers, but not Valve. They went way above and beyond what any other developer has done by releasing a patch for Team Fortress 2 that adds a whole bunch of Halloween themed content.

Dubbed “The Terrifying Team Fortress Haunted Halloween Special” update, the DLC adds exploding pumpkins, five new achievement that unlock “Mildly Disturbing Halloween Hats,” and a new map called Harvest.

After last week’s glaring omission, the playable demos for Ratchet and Clank: A Crank in Time is finally available to patient Europeans, featuring last week’s Crank demo previously available for America, along with an all new demo featuring, yes you guessed it, Ratchet.

Elsewhere, Halloween is on the horizon which is reflected by some of the content on offer, including DLC for LittleBigPlanet and Pain, along with some scary treats for Rock Band and Guitar Hero 5. There’s even some DLC for the newly released DJ Hero, as if these weekly store updates weren’t already overrun with overpriced tracks for music games.

Hit that jump for a full rundown on this week’s update.

operation-flashpoint-dragon-rising

Yesterday Codemasters announced that it will release a patch for Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising in tandem with a dose of DLC.

According to Codemasters producer Sion Lenton, “Our intention is to align [the patch] with the first DLC pack that’s coming out as well, which is due around the end of October. Hopefully we’ll do the whole thing in one.”

To say the least, this week’s update is rather devoid of fresh content. For PS3 owners, there is just one playable demo of NBA 2K10 along with the usual wealth of music orientated downloadable content, including an extensive Queen track pack for Rock Band. On the other hand, PSP players will be graced with GTA: Chinatown Wars this Friday and who could live without Hannah Montana: Rock Out The Show?

There is just one question on my mind – where is our promised playable demo of Ratchet and Clank: A Crack In Time?

killing floor

Today developer Tripwire Interactive announced that a large update for its zombie-tastic shooter Killing Floor will arrive tomorrow, October 22. In celebration of this news, Valve’s Steam service is hosting a free weekend.
