Ok, so it’s late (again), but those in North America got a rather late update yesterday, so late I wasn’t willing to wait up for it. Nevertheless it’s here now and i’ve got to say, like the European update, it’s pretty weak. There’s no sign of Lumines (more on that later) and Astro Tripper has only appeared in Europe, which is kinda weird. Guys (and gals) accross the pond can get their hands on PowerUp Forever, but it dosen’t really seem like much of a consolation. There’s no demos to be found either, you’d think with all the games coming out around this time of year we’d see something from someone, but they all seem to have decided against it. The usual array of downloadable content is here though, with No Doubt coming for Rock Band and Nirvana heading to Guitar Hero: WT, part 1 of the Santa Sackboy costume is available for LittleBigPlanet and the new expansion for Clancy’s EndWar is there for those who want it. Apart from the ‘regulars’ everything else is pretty weak, Crash Commando is coming next week, so I guess we’ve got something to look forward to. Hit the jump for the full release list.

  • PowerUp Forever full game – $9.99
  • LittleBigPlanet “Santa Coat and Trousers” costume – Free!
  • LittleBigPlanet “Street Fighter” costume pack – $5.99 (or $1.99 each)
  • High Velocity Bowling “Tiff’s Big Zero Trick Shot Pack” – Free!
  • High Velocity Bowling “Gearhead Ball Pack” – $0.99
  • Tom Clancy’s EndWar “Escalation Expansion” pack – $9.99
  • Star Wars: The Force Unleashed “The Apprentice Mission Pack” – $9.99 
  • Star Wars: The Force Unleashed “Character Pack 2” – $4.99
  • Age of Booty “Map Pack 4” – Free!
  • Age of Booty “Map Pack 5” – Free!
  • Rock Band DLC – Click Here 
  • Guitar Hero World Tour DLC – Nirvana Pack 
  • Karaoke Revolution DLC
  • Mercenaries 2 “Blow It Up Again!” pack – Free! 
  • Resistance: Fall of Man map packs – Now Free!

There were some nice surprises in there. It’s good of Insomniac to release the Resistance: FoM packs for free and I guess the Mercs. 2 DLC is good for those who have the patience to play that game. I think it’s weird MM have decided to release the Santa costume in 2 parts, me thinks that they had nothing for next week. I guess, for those who want a lot of DLC, the past few weeks have been pretty good, for those who don’t we’re just waiting on something better. I know it’s Christmas time, but please Sony we need some better stuff. Hopefully Crash Commando will make up for this week when it arrives.
