‘Heads-Up’ PlayStation Store Update (11th February 2010)

Howdy…let’s get it on.

To celebrate the one year anniversary of the calming, beautiful and enthralling game that we know and love as Flower, for one week only you can now get this at the reduced price of £2.39/€2.99, so if you haven’t got hold of this game already, now is the perfect time.

Also available for one week only, is the Map Pack Bundle for Call of Duty: World at War at the reduced price of £15.99/€19/99. We also have last week’s special offers, and minis month offers, still available for one more week.

Focusing on the new stuff now, our old friend Frogger is back, with a brand new adventure (try reading that without thinking of Vanilla Ice), and you can also get your hands on the demo for the hugely anticipated Heavy Rain.

We have two new minis available too…minis month madness continues it seems! This is Football Management and The Terminator bring bite sized gaming to your PSP and PS3 this week.

Also for your PSP, Blood Bowl is now available, and we have three demos for you to try, ranging from SOCOM Fireteam Bravo 3, Echoshift to Undead Knights

There’s also a bunch of add-ons, videos and a few other bits and bobs for you to download, so I’m going to take a deep breath, and let you peruse the full list below.

Take it easy all!

Another cool update, whens the new Socom out on pspgo for download Mike?

 

Brilliant update Mike – nice work!

 

Looks like just the Trash Panic theme for me today. Since I already got the Heavy Rain demo and can’t wait for the full game.

 

Nice selection. Good reporting work Mike. Gold star!

 

Finally Stone Cold awsome update cant wait for next week for the Resident Evil 5 DLC

Still no Peggle… :(

ESPGANESAIII 11 February, 2010 @ 12:07 pm   12

Hmmmmmmmm, just the heavy rain demo for me, also any idea when the new Resi 5 DLC is going to be hitting the store?????

Sold on Flower.

 
Ragnarok-NZ 11 February, 2010 @ 12:07 pm   14

Already had me some Heavy Rain demo love last week, its truly an amazing game.
Quick Question Mike – any news on Pacman Championship edition, one of the launch Minis that was announced? Has it been cancelled?

Also,wasnt there already a demo of Thexder Neo for PSP?
I wouldnt know, I purchased it on the day of release so…heh.

Any news on Dissidia Though?

 

Hi Mike
Heavy Rain demo SWEET can not wait for the game.

 

Where’s my OFP:DR DLC?

 

Oh forgot to ask do you have a time for when the store updates Mike?

 
Splutterbug 11 February, 2010 @ 12:09 pm   18

Heavy Rain demo for me, I already have Flower but if you haven’t that is a bargain price, one of the games of the year.

Well played on that one Keb Keb.
I got the Heavy Rain demo early, though.
Did you? Have you played it yet? Any thoughts? :P

 

Ho Goog update for my PSP Go,

but Mike any news for Half Minute hero, last week we don(t have the demo in the French PSN, the entire game will be on the french PSN for sale or not ?

Flower for me at that price :)

 
ShogunDarius 11 February, 2010 @ 12:11 pm   22

Just 2 questiomns, firstly i gather still no news on vandal hearts right?

secondly where is valhalla knights 2? rising star themselves tweeted yesterday saying its out for the store today

Weeei, Heavy Rain demo awesomeness!

Was expecting Bonfire of vanities… oh well. Just got my platinum Mike, but you got yours without “cheating” in the latest DLC. You the man.

And more free sackboys! Got an army of them [DELETED]!

And now,for the whine:

Dissidia (Poland :P), when?

Flower for this funny price is my at last :)

 

Mike, have you won any trophy on Trash Panic?

The difficulty level is mental

:)

 

Average update, but where is Williams Pinball PSP and Pinball Heroes? :-/

Retro_1973 11 February, 2010 @ 12:13 pm   27

Is it the same Heavy Rain demo we got to play last week or a different one?

EHRGEIZ-XIII 11 February, 2010 @ 12:14 pm   28

getting flower! :)

 
jimmy-google 11 February, 2010 @ 12:14 pm   29

Great price for Flower – I’ll be picking that up when I get home.

I’ll hold off on the Heavy Rain demo – I don’t want to spoil the game.

Mike, any good games coming out on the psn in the next month or so we should keep a look out for (assuming you can tell us)?

 
AcidCrashX 11 February, 2010 @ 12:15 pm   30

MORNING MIKEFACE!

hope you’re good man, sweet update today. I’m especially loving the amount of PSP demo’s and HANGER 18 as a DLC song… i’ll be grabbing that :D

I hear you’re enjoying Bioshock 2 atm, hoe you finding it work on a PS3 pad? I’m holding out until I can get some hands-on time with it personally but i always value your opinion.

hope the rest of your day is calm and chilled :D

laters

    Mike Kebby 11 February, 2010 @ 1:25 pm    

    Howdy fella

    I am LOVING Bioshock 2, I don’t have any issues with how it plays on the dualshock either…didn’t realise that may be a bone of contention to be honest.

    I am a Bioshock fan-boy, so I may be slightly bias, but I think it’s incredible so far (played about 3 hours of the single player campaign now).

 
steven_dutch 11 February, 2010 @ 12:15 pm   31

Hi mike.
Nice update.
Is there any chance we’re going to see Catan get a release over here in Europe?

 
bandoors_ksa 11 February, 2010 @ 12:15 pm   32

Hay Mike i asked a week ago and ill ask again:

will Heavy Rain DLC going to release on the Saudi Arabia store or UAE store?

Thanks :D

 
Domino2097 11 February, 2010 @ 12:16 pm   33

Any news if we’re getting the Oddworld games Mike?

 

Mike, Any news on the AvP fix? Still can’t take part in this great online demo :-(

Ezz

 

* Heavy Rain Rating: PEGI 18

Availability: Not available in Germany

Why?! Just Why?!

    Mike Kebby 11 February, 2010 @ 1:25 pm    

    We’re working on trying to get this released onto the German store asap, but can’t confirm anything just yet.

sowasred2012 11 February, 2010 @ 12:17 pm   36

Hi Mike, I read somewhere that there was some RE5 DLC coming next week, do you know if that’s the case or…?

Also, whose leg do I have to hump to get Silent Hill 2 on the store? I *miss* that game…

 

When are we getting Pinball Heros to PSP?

 
steven_dutch 11 February, 2010 @ 12:19 pm   38

@ mmatzat
Blame your government!
Australia seems to be getting there soon though!
The 18+ rating might soon be introduced there!

 

Heavy Rain and Flower it is then. The Heavy Rain demo might make the two weeks until launch a little easier.

I may have missed the answer in a previous week but is there any sign of Operation Flashpoint Dragon Rising DLC Pack 2?

Pretty good update so thank you!

 
Carnivius_Prime 11 February, 2010 @ 12:20 pm   40

That low price still hasn’t sold me on Flower. I played it at a friends house a while ago and just didn’t care for it at all. Just a very dull experience all round.

And seeing as I already got the (rather fine) Heavy Rain demo at the weekend there don’t seem much again for me this week though I might get Frogger HD. Heard it’s got a 2 player mode? Used to love playing a free Frogger clone called Croak on the Amiga years ago in 2 player. If Frogger HD is even remotely as fun as that was then that might be worth buying.

Mike have you got a update ffor me yet on Thrillville: Off the Rails?

No new games on PSP Go, and the worst thing is “BadMan Holy invasion of privacy” missing from polish Store, I was going to buy it along with Disgaea.

Mike do something soon there will be no games for me to buy/play.

I want some old titles like FinalFantasy Crisi Core, Ace Combat Skies of deception, DungeonSiege. Now I’m gonna regret buying PSP GO instead one with UMD but I liked the design and bluetooth. Why only USA got all those cool titles.

 

*sniff* still no Peggle.

Idea for a new feature: remote control the ps3 over the internet to start downloading demo’s, so they will be ready to play when I get home from work ;)

I’ll check out Heavy Rain tonight!
Sweet price on flower too

 

any word on dragon age origins DLC (return to ostagar)?

 
timewarp87 11 February, 2010 @ 12:23 pm   46

Any links for where we can go to see screenshots of the psp Terminator game ?

 

Once again no new premium avatars. Mike could you tell us when we gonna get them??

 

Ooh, lot’s of PSP demo’s and minis this week, awesome.

People need to buy Flower, at that price it’s a steal. Such a fresh experience.

 

the heavy rain demo not in germany… LOL

 
Ragnarok-NZ 11 February, 2010 @ 12:24 pm   50

@STARBASS
You can already remote control your ps3, either with a Sony Ericsson Aino or with a PSP.
Remote play allows you to access your PS3′s XMB and log into PSN and make purchases or download a demo or two :)
