European PSN Store update for May 1, 2008
So far since the launch of the new PS Store, European has seen it's fair share of good quality updates. Certainly, the situation appears to be much better than before and SCEE seem to be coming good on their promise that they would 'sort the situation out' by the Summer.
It would be a shame, therefore, to see a lacklustre update this week, wouldn't it?
Here's the full list of available items:
Ape Quest (£8.99)
Need for Speed Pro Street - Bugatti Veyron (£1.99)
Need for Speed Pro Street - Mclaren F1 (£1.99)
Need for Speed Pro Street - Premium Car Pack (£3.49)
Need for Speed Pro Street - Premium Car Pack 2 (£3.49)
Snakeball - Team Mode Pack (£1.99)
Kane & Lynch - Fragile Alliance Maps (free)
Demos (all free):
Ape Quest Starter Pack
Videos (all free):
Ironman movie trailer
Wallpapers and Themes (all free):
Rainbow Six Vegas 2 Theme
Dark Sector Theme
Obviously, anyone still playing Kane & Lynch can't complain about the value for money the extra map pack represents, but the big news of the week has to be Ape Quest.
Including the instantly recognisable characters from the Ape Escape franchise, this is an RPG-style quest that sees you battling evil in the kingdom of Toqsica. You can download a starter pack and then pick up the full game if you like it.
There are also a good range of extra vehicles for Need for Speed, although we're wondering if anyone is still playing the 'street racer' since the release of Burnout Paradise. One point though - to use the car packs you must own the version of Need for Speed: Pro Street that has the disc ID BLES-00175 (you'll usually find this printed on the disc under the PlayStation logo).
So on balance, another good update from SCEE. Here's hoping the momentum carries through for the foreseeable future.
