PlayStation Store Update
Hello all, I’m back for another week of PlayStation Store fun! As seems quite fitting after a couple of slower weeks on the store, this week’s update is absolutely crammed with content.
We have four PSN games up for grabs, from our very own Numblast, to the comic-inspired shooter Punisher: No Mercy, as well as the old-school classic James Pond: Robocod. We have plenty for PSP owners too, with Monster Hunter Freedom Unite available digitally, as well as the PSP version of Numblast amongst other things.
We’ll also have a special publish on Friday morning for the digital PSP version of Tiger Woods PGA Tour 10 (which should be available around mid-morning).
Add to all of that content such as the Expansion Speed pack for MotorStorm: Pacific Rift, a hearty amount of additional content for you PS3 Tiger Woods PGA Tour 10 fans and LBP’s Sacktue of Liberty costume. There’s also another trailer for Battlefield 1943, which will be released next week (I’ve just read the review in my copy of Edge magazine today and it was given a healthy 9/10) so check that out if you haven’t already taken a look at this game. We also have plenty more Batman Arkham Asylum trailers on the store this week too, and this game is really looking like a good one.
Phew…I think that should be enough to keep us all busy for a week!
To play Numblast, move the cursor around the board and swap the positions of numeric cells to create combos of identical numbers aligned in 2×2 squares. These combos trigger explosions and as your skills improve so will the size of your combos.
Punisher: No Mercy (£6.99/€7.99)
The Punisher comes straight from the Marvel Universe to the PlayStation Network in this exclusive game – Offering frantic, arcade-style shooting action, with a heavy emphasis on multiplayer (supports eight players online), the goal is simple – survive!
topatoi: The Great Tree Story (£7.99/€9.99)
You may have already read the post by Natalia from the Boolat team on the blog yesterday about topatoi – this unique puzzle/platform game allows you to control a gyroscopic vehicle and offers varied and inventive ways to control, and make your way round, the 3D environments.
Trial (and unlock)
Red Baron Arcade (Trial free – unlock key £6.29/€7.99)
Available to buy via this trial version, the full version of Red Baron Arcade features 20 historic WW1 planes, where you can battle against countless enemies including zeppelins, battleships and other authentic aircraft.

PSone Classics (PS3 & PSP compatible)
James Pond 2: Codename Robocod (£3.99/€4.99)
(I don’t know about you, but this game was one of my most-played when I was younger). Join James Pond as he jumps and stretches his way around some truly memorable levels. This is a true platforming classic.
