The latest update has landed on the PSN Store this week, bringing with it a fine selection of content  to enjoy.

Monkey Island 2 is the undisputed highlight of full PSN games, and there’s the usual supply of game boosting DLC including additional content for Dragon Age: Origin, some Marvel level and costume kits for LittleBigPlanet and even a playable demo of the scary, quintessentially Japanese Patapon 3. Oh, and there’s another preposterously priced map pack for Modern Warfare 2.

Hit that jump for a full roundup of this week’s PSN Store update.


DICE has continued its ongoing onslaught of lacklustre DLC with the release of VIP Map Pack 4, the latest new map pack that isn’t really a new map pack. This time around, Atacama Desert and Port Valdez have received the VIP treatment, with Atacama Desert now available to play in Rush mode and Port Valdez in Conquest mode.

It’s clear that every map is slowly being made available for every mode: there are still a few maps that aren’t playable in certain modes however,  so it is highly likely that we haven’t seen the last of these VIP map packs.  At this rate it looks like we may have to wait until the end of the year for the forthcoming Vietnam expansion before we get any real new content. Let’s just hope that the interest level in Bad Company 2 doesn’t run out of ammunition by then, particularly with the releases of Medal of Honour and Call of Duty: Black Ops looming ahead.


So a week has past and yet another PlayStation Store update is upon us. Hope you enjoyed last week’s content, because this week is underwhelming. Although, if you are a fan of Monkey Island or Family Fued games you may disagree with that statement.

For those PlayStation Plus subscribers, you of course receive some more deals – if that’s what you want to call them. Any of you take the plunge and get PlayStation Plus? This week looks just as bleak as the last with what is available for you. I honestly don’t see the benefit of subscribing. But I digress, hit the jump for a full breakdown of what is available.

If you guys are anything like me, you played through BioShock 2, fiddled around with the multiplayer, and haven’t touched the game since. That may change in the future, however. Today 2K Games announced that BioShock 2 will be getting several breaths of fresh air from a some upcoming of single-player DLC.

The first batch of single-player DLC is dubbed the ‘Protector Trials’ pack and charge gamers with keeping your Little Sister “safe from the intense onslaught of Splicers as she gathers ADAM from corpses.” Read more… »

This week’s PSN update sees the launch of PlayStation Plus, the new subscription based scheme revealed at this year’s E3 which entitles you to a slew of free goodies, including free games, DLC and minis.

Elsewhere, Fat Princess becomes a trifle more bloated after gorging on a particularly fattening expansion pack and the SEGA special offers continue to dominate.

But that’s not all: all can be revealed after the break.


Oh what a glorious week it has been for the PS3. Last night we received a pretty new firmware update, version 3.40, fresh with PlayStation Plus, a networking feature in the photo gallery, video editor and uploader, rating system for PSN content, and enhanced power saving settings. I don’t know about you, but I don’t update anymore until I know it won’t brick my system. Call me paranoid but my launch day PS3 is my precious.

Anyhow, Sony continues to shower us with gifts today! This week, you can find new PlayStation Plus PSN Store content, a digital version of inFAMOUS, and if that doesn’t feed your hunger for PSN content, perhaps a Fat Princess expansion pack will. If that isn’t enough for you, hit the jump to see what else today’s US PSN Store update has in store for you – literally. Read more… »

It’s fair to say that that my PS3 and Battlefield: Bad Company 2 disc are very well acquainted by now, having spent the better part of three months together. No other game has provided me with such ample amounts of entertainment so far this year, and, as a result, an inhumane number of hours of my insignificant existence have been poured into painstakingly upgrading my online ranking. I also like to think I’m a proficient player, and am very proud of my dedication.

Or at least I was until I recently had a browse over the leaderboards only to discover that, at the time of writing, the world leader of Battlefield: Bad Company 2 has spent over 800 hours to reach the elite top level rank. You have to wonder if they still have a pulse. Read more… »

After gamers turned on GTA IV, many doubted Rockstar’s ability to bounce back strong - especially with a title that was mostly under-marketed until just a few months before its release. And yet, behold! Red Dead Redemption is a bonafide Game of the Year contender, and easily the developer’s strongest open-world effort to date. It’s almost as if Michael Pachter said it was sent out to die or something.

Yesterday saw the release of the first DLC for RDR, a free co-op-centric mission pack, titled Outlaws to the End. After playing it with some fellow high plains drifters, I’m ready to share my thoughts on the missions, the new additions, and possible proof that the Crackdown 2 demo is taking over the interwebs.


With a host of special offers courtesy of SEGA and 6 brand new PSN games, there’s very little to complain about this week’s PSN Store update. The selection of downloadable content on offer is also anything but light, featuring new content for Lost Planet 2 and also the anticipated Onslaught co-op download for Battlefield: Bad Company 2.

Hit the jump for a complete listing of this week’s PSN update.

Alan Wake DLC priced at $7
By: | June 18th, 2010

Alan Wake took a step into new territory by offering a psychological thriller bordering on, dare I say, art.. but it’s not going in any new direction with its DLC. You can expect to plop down 560 points ($7) per DLC according to Joystiq.

If you purchased the game new and saved the token that came with it, you will be able to get the first piece of downloadable content entitled “The Signal” for free on July 28th.


EA has announced Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Vietnam, an upcoming expansion for the best-selling shooter during their press conference at E3 which was revealed with a teaser trailer for us to suckle on.

According to the Battlefield Blog: “The expansion pack contains 4 brand new maps built in Frostbite including the popular Conquest and Rush game modes as well as Vietnam specific weapons, vehicles, persistence, unlocks as well as new awards, achievements and trophies.”

This will not be the first time the franchise will have infiltrated this location, after Battlefield: Vietnam was released as a standalone game in 2004. The trailer confirms that Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Vietnam is scheduled for a winter 2010 release window.


So then, what PSN treats have been unleashed onto the store this week? Well, there’s Joe Danger for starters, the debut title from Hello Games. What’s more, a host of PSP games have had some tempting permenant price reductions under the PSP Essentials umbrella, including Ratchet and Clank: Size Matters, Pursuit Force: Extreme Justice and WipeOut Pulse amongst many others.

A full listing of this week’s store update can be found after the break. Also, look out for a bumper PSN update next week with the arrival of E3 – a host of trailers and the possibility of the entire Sony conference have been hinted at.
