March 29, 2012 // 3:44 pm - Sony's Ross McGrath of the PlayStation Store Team is here with the European PSN updates for the week of April 4th today, as follows below:

Hey guys, sorry we're a bit late to market this week with our content update, but hopefully you'll feel as though it's worth waiting for and very much in keeping with the quality you've come to expect this year.

It's always a good feeling to give away content in a single month that more than covers the cost of the annual subscription.

So by now, if you've headed over to the SCEA update you will see they're getting Shift 2: Unleashed and Shank 2 in their update this month, courtesy of the lovely folks at EA.

Here, it's no different, as EA's 145 car, 36 track monster of a racing title is now yours at no cost, alongside the ultra-violent and ultra-awesome grindhouse 2D platform-brawler.

Don't forget there are a huge number of additional cars and a couple of extremely useful time-saver packs available for Shift 2: Unleashed, all available from the PlayStation Store.

The PS one Classic this month is Silent Hill, which I'm sure you'll agree is a proper classic title - never before has radio static been so terrifying. Unfortunately you'll have to wait just one more short week until it's available (sorry!) but it will be available into the start of May's publish to make up for the lost week.

This week we have two brand-new minis for your entertainment, 'Floating Cloud God Saves the Pilgrims', in which you'll float and shoot your way through seven beautifully drawn worlds to save your followers and 'Golf Mania', offering 90 holes of single and multiplayer golfing challenges from traditional courses to gravity defying glass towers.

I Am Alive comes to PS3 with a 20% discount for all you faithful Plus users, and Wheels of Destruction will also be available at a discount for the two weeks after launch.

New themes, lots of avatars which include a set of exclusive avatars developed by SCEA and an avatar pack from the PS VITA favorite, Escape Plan for you guys too.

Later in the month we give you the chance to blast some more zombies with a launch discount on SEGA's House of the Dead 4 (with additional freebies) and we bring a bit of culture and refinement to Plus with a launch discount on the absolutely gorgeous (and inexpensive) Pure Chess - we're even throwing in a free piece of DLC for the game that has been described as 'the Gran Turismo of chess'. How about that?

Alright, enjoy your racing and/or revenge killings. See you in the comments.
