Yes, it’s late I know. You didn’t really expect the update to be on time did you? You did, well…fair enough. So yeah, for once in a long while BOTH of the PlayStation Store updates are late. Sorry. If you’re all amped up about me being late, for £6.29 you can calm yourselves down with Thatgamecompany’s Flower. Also this week sees the return of Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket Powered Battle Cars, a new demo for Motorstorm 2 and some new paid-for content for LittleBigPlanet. Hit the jump for the full list.

Slant 6’s SOCOM: Confrontation has finally been given a European release date. The question is…is anyone arsed? I think not. Those living in North America have been able to play the game since late last year. Although it looked promising at first, it didn’t live up to what it could’ve been and it’s ‘problematic’ release didn’t help either.

Either way, if you’re living in Europe and, even with the above comments and the less than impressive review scores (click here to to see Giancarlo’s verdict), you want to play it’s coming out on March 13th…and subsequently going up against Resident Evil 5. I guess it was going to flop anyway, releasing it then gives Sony an excuse.

The Killzone 2 demo is live! Oh yeah, there’s other stuff too. Europe can finally get a hold of Lumines: Supernova and Cuboid. Criterion have released the first bunch of paid-for downloadable content for Burnout: Paradise, we also see the release of NHL arcade and the usual weekly stuff from Rock Band & Guitar Hero. Hit the jump for the list. Continue reading

Sony seem to have decided to stop announcing new things coming into PlayStation Home. We have been informed that yesterday a new update was released for the service, bringing with it the Home Events space and leaderboards for the Red Bull: Air Race Home space. Now if Sony had announced this, it might have got people to visit. Seems like bad marketing for a company that’s just lost $1 billion +. Either way they’re out, they’re pretty cool. Nothing special, just a new minigame and some leaderboards. Check it out though, it might just take your fancy.

I sorta neglected my writing responsibilities yesterday and forgot to post the updates, they’re here now at least. Starting with Europe. After a long wait those of us in European territories get to play Supersonic Areobatic Rocket-Powered Battle Cars. This week also sees the return of LittleBigPlanet DLC, some more (useless) DLC for Skate 2 and the PS3 exclusive Mirrors Edge time trial map, as well as the usual updates for Rock Band & Guitar Hero: WT. Hit the jump for a full list of content. Continue reading

Today, as you probably know by now, is Thursday, which means, well, two things. One, it’s the day before Friday and Two, it’s time for the European PlayStation Store update. Ok, after that rather long winded intro it’s time to tell you guys (and gals) what’s available for your downloading pleasure today. Well, there’s some new DLC for Shaun White Snowboarding, Magic Ball has been released and there’s a demo for Skate 2. Hit the jump for the full list. Continue reading

The first PlayStation Store update of 2009 is, sadly, pretty lacklustre. There’s the LOTR: Conquest demo which was on the North American store last time around. Other than that it’s mainly just add on content. There’s stuff there for EndWar and Naruto as well as the usual Rock Band and Guitar Hero content. There is a lack of LittleBigPlanet content this week, but i’m sure Media Molecule will make up for it with something good next week. Hit the jump for, the unusually small, list. Continue reading
