PSN Store Update: 14/12/11

As we get closer to Christmas, I start to take a greater interest in what’s coming up on the digital stores. I always like to have a nice downloadable game on my hard disk to relax with when everyone else is sleeping off their alcohol and mince pies.

[drop2]XBLA got Joe Danger SE (review later today) and Sonic CD today and next week’s EU PSN is getting Stranger’s Wrath so there’s some competition hotting up!


There are some more full games coming to the PSN today with DiRT 3 and Dead Island both getting slightly-too-expensive digital releases. The funniest joke this week, though, is the price tag on Need for Speed: The Run. Go on, look at it and try not to laugh.

  1. Is that currency symbol the right way round on NFS? Looks like it should be €69.99, rather than £.

  2. “Need for Speed: The Run (£69.99/€49.99) Rating: PEGI 16 ”

    Is that a typo or do they really expect £69.99 for it??

    • Should be £39.99.

    • Wouldn’t even pay anything or even play it, Need for Speed is so annoying these days… KILL IT… make a new fresh game with the developers and… Burnout >.>

      • they can charge the £49.99 because that is the RRP. Shops sell at £39.99 to make sure they can sell the copies they have.

    • not a typo, it’s almost impossible to hit the € sign by accident. It is a mistake though, they got the Euro and Sterling prices switched around. But £50 is still quite silly.

      Price amended above to reflect the mistake :)

    • It makes me laugh especially when I’ve just bought Rayman (PS3) for £22 from Shopto, bargain!

  3. Battlefield 3 – Physical Warfare Pack – Cool, another freebie for those who pre-ordered! :D

    • What is it?

      Haven’t heard anything about it to this point!

    • We already have this if we have the Limited Edition?

    • I thought I had this from the begining, wasn’t it early or limited access to a few guns/attachments – I know I had a silenced pistol for some preorder bonus or DLC.

      • We all had it just 2 or 3 weapons and we still have them (Go to Soldier and when you scroll along weapons and a padlock appears keep scrolling there are in the middle of the weapon list)

      • Oh I see, thanks. I was just a bit confused (easily done) since there is no price against it above. Is it now free for everyone else then?

      • I definitely don’t have the DAO12 unlocked. I have the limited edition.

        Don’t use LMG’s or snipers much so couldn’t comment on them, but my DAO12 is definitely locked.

      • It’s all very confusing. I think some of the unlocked guns were timed, so you had them unlocked for a little while (possibly). But I also had some guns that were locked for the US but available for the Russians – not played BF3 in a while though to be honest so not sure what the situation is now.

      • Looking again it might be if you pre ordered from and Not just pre ordered. I maybe wrong yet again though.

      • I thought the Physical Warfare Pack was just the name given to the limited edition?

      • My goodness, this is such a minefield. :P

        Yep, bought mine from Game. Either way, whatever it is, I appear to have it!

      • the physical warfare pack was available to all who per-ordered in game or gamestaion, it included early access to a couple of guns, some exclusive attachments and the type 88 lmg.

        does anyone know if this pack is available to buy for any one who didn’t pre-order from game? since the type 88 is the last gun I’ve got to unlock.

      • Ah, that would explain it then as i pre-ordered from shopto. I did wonder how one of my friends was using the DAO12 before he hit teh appropriate level… Now i know! :)

        Wonder if it’s a big file? Probably just a 100kb unlock no?

      • Thanks david24 – that clears it up. The lack of price threw me a bit. That sounds about right!

    • when does the metaphysical pack come out?

      where all the gunplay and high powered weaponry are replaced with debates about the nature of reality.


  4. Wooo! Fear Effect :D

    • Wooo! Mickey’s Wild Adventure… (so much hell)

      • I like that game…. at least i did on the megadrive

    • Exactly this. Loved the first game oh so many years ago. I’d love if FE2 was next. I picked it up but then got a PS2 and never actually played it. It’s buried in the loft somewhere :'(

      Cyberpunk gut-tottin hot lesbian ass-kickers FTW!

    • HELL YEAH!!!
      The game was unplayable on PSP when I downloaded it back in the days I had ctf on it (the 2 disk wasnt’t loading)

      Word to the Wise!
      It’s 4 disks big, and it makes heavy use of the trigers so you won’t be able to play it on the PSP without button customization from the PSP-PSX options.

  5. So, Alice: Madness Returns is £47.99. Or, its £10 today only on

  6. Also, the Queen songs were on there last week, Mickey’s Wild Adventure was already on there as it was on sale already, and I’m pretty sure Dead Island was on there before now as well.

    • So was the GoldenEye demo.

      • That was just for plus subscribers I think.

  7. Just the LBP2 Miss Piggy custom for me, obviously. What a women/pig.

    Although I won’t get it, nicely priced Resistance 3 DLC again.

  8. Finally something for me. NFS FTW!!!….. not. I’m gonna try out that goldeneye demo. Hoping it will be bargain bin price in january if its any good

    • I was sadly disappointed with the demo – MP might be okay though.

      • Not £49.99 okay though lol

      • i though it was quite nostalgic and a refreshing change from all the military fps’s

      • I thought it was just a bit bland – each to their own. I know what you mean though, I’d go Bioshock/Rage/Brink for some alternative FPS.

    • It was roughly £20 the other day at GAME, and considering how rubbish the demo was I wouldn’t be surprised.

  9. Goldeneye demo for me. Otherwise not a bad update though I look forward to Strangers Wrath next week.

    • Me too, not much lately other than that..

  10. I’m with Mikey GoldenEye Demo also Mikey its £25 new at the moment (Well I heard it was)
    Just ordered Alice off with bonus pack for a tenner thanks to everyone for the heads up. And finally NFS The Run *burst out of laughter* Bloody ‘el I’m flooding up me own office…. *uncontrollably laughter continues throughout….*

    • Sweet, but i’m looking to get it cheaper than that lol. I ordered Alice last week off amazon for the Mrs for just over a tenner.

    • Best not remind you of the Gaffney clock then. :p Lucky I still have some budget left over for the wife’s Christmas presents.

      • nah man, shes having the paul ross

      • Lol – unfortunately my budget doesn’t cover the still reasonably priced £2,499.99 Ross print. What a lovely chap you are, I hope she has you something equally suitable. Like a life-size cut-out of Vanessa Feltz. Mind you, you’d get a lot more for your money. “Fuck me whilst I eat chips”

      • Very bling, lol. I think your partner deserves a Pat on the back for getting you that lovely work of art.

        P.S. Looking forward to tonights showdown.

      • ooooh forgot about that! Aye me too, cant wait, should be good fun.

        Haha like the pun!
