European PSN updates for September 13th: Confused edition

Today we don't have ThreeSpeech to tell us exactly what's up on the PSN store (presumably, they're as much in the dark as we are). We actually have to check the Store ourselves to see what's what. Unfortunately, we're nowhere near our PS3s to check ourselves so we're going to have to rely on you, the reader, to tell us. According to some of you, today's release list looks like this:
  • Fifa 08 demo (free)
  • NBA Live demo (free)
  • Harry Potter demo (free)
  • Motorstorm Rally Car and Bus vehicle pack (£1.49)
  • Ninja Gaiden Weapons Master add on (£2.99)
  • Loco Roco trailer (free)
People are also telling us that the update is different for different countries (the above list has been "confirmed" for the UK), so if you've received something different then let us know. Ordinarily we'd applaud Sony Europe for finally giving us a semi-decent update but, quite frankly, we're too confused right now to do anything like that.

[Thanks to everyone who sent this in]

1. Good news for Fifa lovers in Europe who have a PS3. The 360 demo isn't there yet.

Off topic, I just picked up Heavenly Sword and if I put $5 down on Ratchet and clank I would get a free demo disk for the game. It was a no brainer. So ask about the demo disk.

3. i just played fifa 08 and i have to say i'm totally disappointed. the graphics are ok, but not what i expected. the framerate is stable most of the time in-game, BUT the introduction of the stadium, players. formation, etc. (which is in-game kind of also) made my eyes bleed. THE FRAMERATE WAS LIKE 15 FPS! also the minimal volume-increase of about 10% when someone shoots a goal is a joke.

you can play one half of 4 minutes with different teams.

5. Australia generally gets the same as Europe, but we did not receive any of the demos today.

Posted at 1:34PM on Sep 13th 2007 by Oduen

6. I live in Denmark and surprising got the same as Sweden, no FIFA 08 demo too ;(I think it's because they haven't translated the menus to Danish (and Swedish).. Arrh maybe we aren't best to English, but we can easily read and understand it.. I think I will make a UK-acount then!For lige at udrykke det på dansk, så synes jeg det er pænt irriterende at vi ikke fik FIFA 08 demoen, jeg tror lige jeg opretter en UK-account :D

7. No I just download it from US (you know all Europans live in US too - only with their PS3 :P)

Posted at 1:35PM on Sep 13th 2007 by Jakob

8. Austria got the same as Sweden and Denmark. There is also episode 5 of the HS series.

9. @3

I think this is why I am staying away from all sports games until they get it together a build a real version for the PS3. I rather save my money on the better games, because buying these games that don't even make use of the SPEs is like supporting their laziness. I'd much rather buy Warhawk, Heavenly Sword, Motorstorm, Uncharted, MGS4, FFXIII, Last Remnant, Haze, and Ratchet & Clank.

10. I wish I had enough to blow money on HS. But I don't. But I do have the money to blow on a rental! And seeing as it's 8 hours long, that's probably a good idea. Does anyone know if Blockbuster has it yet, and if not, when they'll get it?

11. Here in Italy we got everything (the UK did). Download is very, very slow.

Posted at 1:59PM on Sep 13th 2007 by rav97

12. I've just made an UK account. And it's downloading right now. I hope they won't split Europe. Annoying to downlad stuff from 5 regions; Denmark, US, UK, Japan and Hong Kong!

13. Ireland didn't receive NBA or FIFA demos.

Posted at 2:09PM on Sep 13th 2007 by Peter

14. I'm in Ireland, the list for here is as follows:
MotorStorm vehicle pack - Rally Car & Bus
Harry Potter Demo
Ninja Gaiden Sigma pack - Weapon Master
Heavenly Sword Trailer - Day of the Warrior
Cocoreccho trailer

15. These updates should really be released on a more regular basis so the PSN doesn't turn into a big jar of molasses on Thursday nights.

18. Last I checked most Irish people speak English...what weird localisation reason does SCEE have for the difference in the UK and Irish store. Didnt know they tried to sample in the Dublin accent in all these games

19. @ 12 /sigh I have an EU, UK, JPN,HK,US and Australia too, since they have some interesting music videoes in 1080p from aussie bands on there.
