European PSN releases for June 15th


Are you ready for this? We feel like, for the first time, we are relaying some good news to all the Europeans out there. Read on to see what your PSN Store now contains.
  • Rampart game (£1.99)
  • Joust game (£1.99)
  • Motorstorm Time Attack Mode (free)
  • Lair trailer (free)
  • Haze trailer (free)
  • Super Stardust HD trailer (free)
  • The Darkness story trailer (free)
  • An interview with Paul Hollywood video (free)
Where to start! Yes, the games are Midway rehashes (and you know how we feel about those) but, really, it's the thought that counts. Sony are finally pulling their collective finger out and releasing some decent content to the European market. As a quick aside, we can't stop watching that Haze trailer. Honestly. It's on repeat in the background at this very moment.

But what of the Motorstorm Time Attack Mode? We only just got done telling you that it has been delayed, which it has. In America, at least. For those of you about to download it, take heed. There are reports of problems occuring unless you do things in the proper order. Load Motorstorm and update to version 1.2 in the online menu, then download the Time Attack Mode and install.
Our advice is: don't download the midway games. Unless you played them when you were wee, they're not going to have much impact on you. Instead, wait until next week for your downloadable game fix. And the week after. As we've already told you, on the 22nd we will see the European release of Calling All Cars and on the 29th it's Super Stardust HD's turn to grace our PS3 hard drives with its presence.

We think we speak for the majority of European PS3 gamers when we say "Nice work Sony, just be sure to keep it up in the coming months!"

1. Haze will be awesome. I really hope it is an PS3 exclusive because it looks awesome. I do like watching trailors on my PS3(tv) instead of on the net. Keep it up Sony.

2. As for the Motorstorm update, the order of the day is.
1. Update firmware to 1.81 (or you can't get online in Motorstorm to perform step 2.)
2. Boot up Motorstorm, go online and to the EU Universe to download the update then reboot the PS3.
3. Go to Playstation Store and download the Time Attack mode.
4. Start up Motorstorm again and pick the new Wreckreation item, Time Attack, then accept the T&Cs.

If you do step 3 first and find that Motorstorm wont start (gives you a black screen and no way back to the XMB). Reset the PS3, go to the Game -> Game Data Utility item and delete the Motorstorm Update 1.1 item.

3. Can't find the interview with Paul Hollywood though. Using a dutch account. Anyone know the exact name?

4. Also the Motorstorm update is funny! Boost is sometimes almost unlimited, guess thats one of the bugs in the patch.

5. I managed to update Motorstorm after having downloaded and installed the update. Maybe it's because I don't think I ever installed the first patch. However, it's nice to see some more stuff for us Europeans. Next week, we get some more PS1 games and CaC!

8. I know this has been said about a lot of games but Haze looks like it could be the next Halo.

Posted at 6:26PM on Jun 15th 2007 by Who Flang Poo

9. Please Ubisoft make this an exclusive. I will make sure the whole world buys it, if its an exlusive.

Posted at 6:36PM on Jun 15th 2007 by massive_98

10. Just installed the Motorstorm patch and I cant sign into the Playstation Store to get the Time Attack Mode

Posted at 8:10PM on Jun 15th 2007 by sam-evans

11. Why is the playstation store in the uk not wide screen

Posted at 9:11PM on Jun 15th 2007 by Venom

12. # Haze trailer (free)
# The Darkness story trailer (free)
# An interview with Paul Hollywood video (free)

Don’t see these on the Dutch PSN. What, now I have to have a UK account as well if I want to be able to download everything, next to my Japanese and US accounts? The interview I could understand, but Sony, let me tell you: nobody cares if two trailers don’t have Dutch text. Dutch people can speak English well enough, and it’s about the pretty pictures and not the text anyway.
