American PSN updates for October 18th

This week's update might not be too exciting, but at least you get a brand new demo: Juiced 2. For those that missed Jaffe's downloadable game, check it out at its new, lower price.
  • Game: Calling All Cars! (New price: $4.99. Valid until October 25th)
  • Demo: Folklore
  • Demo: Juiced 2
  • Game Videos: Devil May Cry 4 TGS trailer; Turok "Dino Luring"; Uncharted "Tech Dive"; Burnout Paradise "Street Wheels"
  • Movie Trailers: Rail & Ties, Incubus Alive at Red Rocks, Underworld
  • Wallpapers: Eye of Judgment
Those uninterested in Juiced 2 may want to wait until tomorrow. The Japanese Store will have the GT5: Prologue demo tomorrow.

European PSN updates for October 18th

Sony has surprised us. The European PSN update is already live. PS1 fans - prepare yourselves, you're in for a treat. Everyone else, well ... there's always next week. Here's the full release list:
  • Crash Team Racing PS1 game (£3.49)
  • Everybody's Golf 2 PS1 game (£3.49)
  • Syphon Filter PS1 game (£3.49)
  • Dynasty Warrior: Gundam demo (free)
  • Uncharted "The Inspiration" trailer (free)
  • Alien Versus Predator Blu-Ray trailer (free)
We're pretty happy with this update. It's certainly a step up from a couple of months ago. We remember the days when getting a single demo was reason to celebrate. Unfortunately, it would appear the "roadmap" seems to have been false. Having said that, however, it was right on the money with regards to the PS1 games, so we're going to remain optimistic that everything on the list will be available at some point within the next few weeks. We'll keep you updated.

GT 5: Prologue demo available Oct. 20

Now this could be the first time a demo for a demo has ever been released as GT Channel is reporting Sony will offer the Gran Turismo 5: Prologue demo free directly from the PlayStation Store beginning Oct. 20.

The demo will likely be the same as the one shown at Tokyo Game Show, which featured 16 vehicles and three tracks. You might remember Sony removed Gran Turismo HD from the PS Store in late September, paving the way for GT 5: Prologue.

Unless something else swoops down to unseat it, GT5: Prologue will be the most expensive demo ever at about $43 for the disc version and about $39 from the PS Store.

[Thanks for the tip, Shoaib!]

American PSN updates for October 11th

So the European PSN update may not have been up to snuff, but today's American updates have finally been listed on the PlayStation.Blog. This week we're happy to see Everyday Shooter finally being released alongside the Ratchet and Clank demo. Best update ever? This is certainly a contender for the title. The full release list is as follows:
  • Everyday Shooter full game ($9.99)
  • Ratchet and Clank demo (free)
  • Conan demo (free)
  • NHL 2K8 demo (free)
  • Uncharted behind the scenes video (free)
  • Folklore trailer (free)
  • Fallout 3 trailer (free)
  • Ratchet and Clank wallpaper (free)
  • Everyday Shooter wallpaper (free)
  • The Assassination of Jesse James movie trailer (free)
  • Spiderwick Chronicles movie trailer (free)
  • Walk Hard movie trailer (free)

European PSN updates for October 11th

The European PSN has been updated. There are no signs of a Ratchet and Clank demo (looks like another week of sneaking over to the US store and pinching their stuff), or anything else particularly interesting for that matter. Here's the full release list:
  • Tiger Woods 08 demo (free)
  • The Simpsons demo (free)
  • Ninja Gaiden Sigma Weapon Master add-on pack (£2.99)
  • Pixel Junk Racers trailer (free)
  • Fallout 3 teaser trailer (free)
  • Lair trailers (free)
  • Pixel Junk Racers wallpaper (free)
  • Lair wallpaper (free)
  • Folklore wallpaper (free)
  • Men of Honor Blu-Ray trailer
  • Planet of the Apes Blu-Ray trailer
The Ninja Gaiden Sigma add-ons keep coming this week with the Weapon Master pack. Other that there's very little else that hasn't already been available on the US store for at least a week. The Fallout 3 trailer may be the most worthwhile download here. For those of you more excited about interactive content, sit tight and wait for the US update. The Ratchet and Clank demo is on its way.

Japan now getting two PS1 updates a month - where's ours?

Another Japanese PSN update consisting of PS1 games occurred today. While we don't normally report on this, some interesting/annoying/enviable news has also slipped out alongside it. Since the PS3's launch the Japanese PSN Store has been updated once a month with large additions of PS1 games playable on both the PS3 and the PSP. From now on, however, the PS1 updates will be coming twice a month.

So where's ours? The EU and US PSN Stores have had very few PS1 game releases. Europe got a few more games added a couple of months ago, but most of those were taken down due to glaring glitches and errors. If the recent list of rumored PSN releases is to believed, then we've got a few more to look forward to this week. Even so, the Japan store has many times more than Europe and the US added together. When is Sony going to realize we want to pay money for old games we never bought the first time around? Seriously Sony, you're missing out on free money here.

Rumour: EU PSN updates roadmapped for the next month

If are to be believed, the upcoming month could be looking pretty shiny for the European PSN store. Apparently SCEE have revealed a list of full titles that will be released on the EU PlayStation Network store. The full list is as follows:

October 11th
  • Ratchet and Clank demo
October 18th
  • Feel Ski full game
  • Pixel Junk Racers full game
  • Blast Factor: Advanced Research add on
  • Folklore "Kidnapped Folk" add on
October 25th
  • EyeCreate full application
  • Trials of Topoq full game
  • Operation: Creature Feature full game
  • Aqua Vita full game
  • Tekken 5: Dark Resurrection online add on
November 8th
  • Toy Home full game
PS1 games due out during October
  • Crash Bandicoot 2
  • Crash Bandicoot 3
  • Everybody's Golf 2
  • Crash Team Racing
  • Bust a Groove
  • Syphon Filter 3
  • Cool Boaders
  • Spyro 2
  • Spyro: Year of the Dragon
If this list is correct, then we're in for a great month. We know that the Ratchet and Clank demo is due out this Thursday in America, but there is no word on whether we can expect it in the European territories as well. As for the games being released on October the 25th - this corresponds with the release of Eye of Judgment and, therefore, the PlayStation Eye which is required to play all of the games listed under that date.

Presumably there will be more demos available within the next four weeks than just Ratchet and Clank. Having said that when it comes to Sony you never know. We'll let you know more as soon as we find out ourselves.

Everyday Shooter appearing this Thursday on PS Store

When we first learned about the insanely interesting downloadable title Everyday Shooter, we wanted to know one thing from Sony: when can we get our hands on it? Of course, that was the one thing they didn't want to tell anybody, so they simply said "it'll come out sometime soonish". Maybe that's not a quote, but it's close enough. We were surprised to hear Everyday Shooter is actually coming out this Thursday, with a price tag of a meager $10. Ah, for clarification purposes, this is for the US PlayStation Store (sorry Europe!), but we're sure an international release won't be far behind. Sony seems to be getting better at that. Anyway, there you have it: something great is coming this Thursday!

European PSN updates for October 4th

Remember when SCEE stated that they'd be "fixing" the PSN updates in Europe? Today seems to be the first step in that direction. It's a small step, but we're getting there. Four demos is nothing to be sniffed at, especially when one of them is being released on the EU and US PSN stores simultaneously. Here's the full release list:
Still, when compared to the US update there's definite room for improvement. No Go! Sports Ski? Oh well, maybe next week. Until then, enjoy your demos (even if you've had most of them downloaded for a week from the US store).

American PSN updates for October 4th

Strangely, Sony has updated the to reflect tomorrow's update. As of writing, none of this content is available for download -- but at least you'll know what's coming. The biggest surprise? The motion-enabled Go! Sports Ski is incredibly affordable.
  • Game: Go! Sports Ski ($2.99)
  • Demo: The Simpsons
  • Demo: Bladestorm: The Hundred Years War
  • Tutorials: NBA 08 and Eye of Judgment
  • Game Videos: Uncharted Behind the Scenes; Haze developer interview; Metal Gear Online trailer
  • Movie Trailers: Tekkonkinkreet, Surf's Up

Game Republic revealed as Toy Home devs

We didn't know it was supposed to be a mystery, but apparently the developers behind PS3's new racer, Toy Home, weren't announced at TGS. The game was held in some high acclaim, so the lack of knowing who was behind the title was disorienting for some. Sony has finally revealed who's to blame for making another winning game and it's none other than Game Republic -- the group behind Folklore and Genji.

The game, planned as a Japanese-exclusive download for now, has Sixaxis support for steering the cars, but also will include support for rumble. This will be the first downloadable title to support rumble, we think. There's not much else to know about the game. You race, it's cute and fun, and it's probably going to stick around in Japan only. If you've got a Japanese account, though, good for you as you'll get a neat game to play this Winter.

Try your hand at an English Bladestorm demo tomorrow

Even though we've had a Japanese demo for Bladestorm for a while, some of us really need to play it in English before we can pass judgment on Koei's not-quite hack-n-slash title. So, Koei is doing just that, releasing a demo on the PSN and Xbox Live tomorrow, October 4th, so we can try to wrap our minds around the idea that you can only swing your sword every once in a while. No matter. The fact remains we're really starting to get some demos before the games are released. That's always a good thing!

European PSN updates for September 27th

It's that time of week again. The European PSN Store has been updated with a reasonable amount of content this week. We're not about to start shouting Sony's praises yet, however. The US has still had a much nicer amount than us for the past few weeks. Enough moaning, here's the release list:
  • Folklore demo (free)
  • SEGA Rally demo (free)
  • Motorstorm Capitano and Varjack vehicle pack (£1.49)
  • Motorstorm Arizona and Patriot vehicle pack (£1.49)
  • Ninja Gaiden Speed Master game pack (£2.99)
  • Spider-Man 3 New Goblin game pack (£3.99)
  • Warhawk wallpapers (free)
  • Heavenly Sword wallpapers (free)
  • Feel Ski trailer (free)
  • inFAMOUS trailer (free)
  • Pro Evolution Soccer 2008 trailer (free)

demo? Didn't we already get that during Leipzig? Good question. The description claims that this demo is new, but we won't be able to let you know for sure until it has finished downloading. The Motorstorm and Ninja Gaiden game packs keep on coming, which is nice to see. The really weird thing about this update is the inFAMOUS trailer. The description reads "Straight out of E3 2007, watch our trailer ... ", seemingly without irony. We've had two game shows happen since E3 and no videos from Tokyo Game Show are up. Has anyone really not downloaded this from the US store yet?

[Thanks Singularity and Ciaran!]

American PSN updates for September 27th

The US PSN Store has yet to be updated but still we know what's due to be released. How do we do it? Witchcraft? Voodoo? The Cell processor's built in time-machine feature (it's there, trust us). Actually, none of those things. We check the PlayStation.Blog, just like everyone else. Here're todays upcoming updates:
  • Clive Barker's Jericho demo (free)
  • NBA 2K8 demo (free)
  • Motorstorm Capitano vehicle pack ($0.99)
  • Ninja Gaiden Speed Master game pack ($unknown)
  • NBA 08 Upside Progression System tutorial video (free)
  • Eye of Judgment overview video (free)
  • Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock trailer (free)
  • Iron Man film trailer (free)
  • We Own The Night film trailer (free)
Demos for everyone! By "everyone" we mean "PS3 and 360 owners." Today marks the first time that people have got the same demos on the same day, regardless of their console choice. We're excited to try out and curious to see whether the demo will make an impact on which of the three basketball games being released next week people will pick up.

TGS07: Puzzle Fighters coming to EU in early November

Whilst getting some hands-on time with Devil May Cry 4 at TGS with the guys from Capcom we asked a few questions regarding Puzzle Fighter HD and its delay in Europe. The Capcom representitives told us that the game would be available for download on the EU PSN store in early November. The reason for the delay is, as usual, localisation issues. They were also quick to mention that in solving these issues now all future Capcom downloadable content will be available worldwide simultaneously. Sounds like a good deal to us.

We followed up by asking whether Sony Europe would be providing any localisation aid to publishers now that they recognise the issues that are causing the delays and trying to fix them. Quite frankly, the answer is no. Third party publishers who want their content available to all regions simultaneously will have to make it happen themselves. But if Capcom can promise that all future releases will be available without delays, then others must be able to do the same, right Sony?
