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.

Killzone 2 Demo Hitting Europe On Thursday! by Anthony Barlow

SCEE have confirmed that the demo for Guerilla Games’, highly anticipated, shooter Killzone 2 will be hitting the European PlayStation Store this upcoming Thursday, February 5th. The demo is said to include two sections of the game’s first level, ‘Corinth River’ as well as the Tutorial from the retail build of the game. I believe the original date for this demo was the 26th so it makes sense for Sony to give people a look at the game a little earlier than a day before the game releases. Nice one SCEE, no word on a full release of the demo for North America yet. Hopefully we’ll hear something soon.

Super Street Fighter II: Turbo HD Remix has been one of the most anticipated games on the PlayStation Network and for some, rather daft, reason it didn’t get released in Europe at the same time as it did in North America. A few weeks back, Capcom answered the prayers of fans and announced a date for the game in European territories, but now Sony have stuck their oar in, seemingly for a damn good reason.

It has been revealed by Capcom UK’s Leo Tan that they had submitted the game to Sony twice and had been denied release  on both occasions, with Sony citing that the game had a number of problems and needed to be re-done. Capcom are now working on a new version of the game which will hopefully be available within three weeks.

I wonder why it was denied over here, but released fine in the US? Hopefully Sony know what they’re doing and that this delay will be good in the long term.

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

It has been revealed today that those of us in Europe will in fact be getting a demo for Guerilla Games’ upcoming FPS Killzone 2. SCEE have said that the demo will be available in the “normal manner” via the PlayStation Store. This announcement seems to have quashed rumors of a similar pre-order scheme to the US heading to Europe. We’ve no idea when the demo will be released, but hopefully it’s before the game releases on February 27th.

Not a bad update this week. Astro Tripper has finally been released, but still there’s no sign of Street Fighter. The usual DLC is here too with the addition of new stuff for EndWar. I think it’s the time of the year, some demos would be cool though. I wonder what the North American Store will have on offer?

  • Astro Tripper full game – £3.19
  • Puzzle Quest: Challenge of The Warlords full game – £15.99
  • Jet Rider 2 PS1 game – £3.99
  • Tom Clancy’s EndWar “Escalation Pack” – £7.99
  • LittleBigPlanet “Street Fighter” costume pack – £4.79 (or £1.59 each)
  • LittleBigPlanet “Santa costume part 1” – Free!
  • Rock Band DLC – Click Here
  • Guitar Hero World Tour DLC  – Nirvana Pack
