PSN Store Update: 26/10/11

[drop2]Today sees the launch (brought forward a week) of PixelJunk’s Sidescroller, which we really liked back at E3 – go read our hands on preview here.

There’s also some arcade throwback racing from SEGA in the form of the classic Daytona, which is apparently rather good if you like your old school driving. What the hell happened to Daytona?


The stand-alone inFamous 2 spin-off, Festival of Blood sinks its fangs into us though. Electricity and bloodsucking don’t seem like natural bedfellows but inFamous is brilliant and with Halloween spookily close, that’ll probably be worth a look.

There’s also a demo of Grease Dance and a handful of minis to enjoy in the shape of the Open Emotion Triple Pack, which is well worth a punt, as well as a Carnivores bundle and Bee Wars.

As for the rest of the goodies, well, jump through to page two for the full list: it’s right there.

  1. Wow, cannot believe they have doubled the price of selected avatars. especially the Call of Juarez ones!

  2. Still no PayDay. Don’t mind as much that it’s delayed but when they take the money on preorder then delay it and then delay the EU date even further, that annoys me. Grrrr.

    • Taken from the PS Blog:

      Payday: The Heist update – we are close to being able to confirm the release date of Payday: The Heist and are just waiting for SOE to provide 100% confirmation, which we hope will be with us later today. SCEE and SOE are working hard to get the game in your hands as soon as possible; thank you for your patience.

  3. Finally gonna grab Limbo!

    • I was thinking the same tbh. That or Festival of Blood. Or both.

      Hmmmm choices! :D

      • I really like the look of Festival of Blood as well. I’ve not played Infamous 2 though, does anyone know if it has any spoilers etc, or is it completely stand alone?

      • Takes place during the events of number 2 but is standalone i believe.

      • & you really should play infamous 2 (if you enjoyed the first one of course) – I thought it was brilliant.

      • Yeah I intend to, I’ve just got such a huge backlog as it is it might take me a while!

  4. Looks a good update, one of the better ones from the past few weeks.

  5. Woah, woah, woah! Battlefield 3 on the PSN store? I presume that’s active on friday, surely not today.

  6. To be honest, if I was planning on keeping BF3 I would be sorely tempted by that £50 price tag.
    Probably just an avatar change for me this week but a decent update none the less

  7. Infamous 2 Festival Of Blood is instant buy for me.

  8. Alien Zombie Death (mini) – 100% discount for one week
    Age of Zombies (mini) – 100% discount for one week

    Errrrr we have already gotten them for free….

    • Not for new subscribers, which sadly isn’t me.

    • It saddened me aswell. Hopefully there’s some good Halloween sales so we get nice discounts.

      • Look above, you may want tissues to wipe away those tears.

      • Well… screw the new subscribers! And they don’t want old minis, they want new and sparkly ones.

      • I would be happy with any new game of late.

  9. No Payday and no Uncharted 3 Fortune Hunters’ Pass? Bad week for me personally.

    • Looking forward to getting my copy of Payday and was ready to lay money down for the Fortune Hunters’ Pass.

  10. Back to 2 pages? I hope you have your replica Battlefield 3 outfit ready i.e. tin hat firmly on :-p
