PSN Store Update: 12/09/12

It’s a Store update filled with demos today. The EU PSN is getting the FIFA 13 demo, for all of you who don’t have Xbox Live Gold, Origin or a US PSN account. We’ll also see a couple of very different driving experiences with demos to download for WRC 3 and F1 2012.

Ecolibrium and Sunflowers both arrive for the Vita. both seem a bit weird and quite interesting so definitely worth a look for your portable.


The latest PS3 firmware (4.25) is available today too, so you might want to get that downloaded and installed before your weekly race to the Store content.

As usual, everything else can be found on the EU PS Blog post.



  1. MW3 price…..

  2. Wait what? I cant see FIFA 13 on my psn store what is going on when will the eu psn get fifa?

    • If you ‘search’, it’s all there. It’s just they are slack bastards at updating the ‘new this week’ bit.

  3. Ooh WRC3 demo, that’s a nice surprise. recent footage looked not too shabby at all so i’m hopeful for this.
    Also Ecolibrium and i might have a look at sunflowers demo.

  4. Why is F1 2012 and all the others 2013?

    • Cause its 2012?

    • The football seasons runs through into 2013, its the game of that season. The formula one season finishes in 2012.

  5. First time I’ve turned the PS3 on since April. I’ll have discounted PS+ with free Red Dead, F1 2012 and WRC demos and I’ll try Ecolibrium for the Vita.

  6. SCEE strikes again, Double Dragon Neon, out on 360 and in NA, supposed to be free on plus and is… Nowhere to be seen.

    • Itll be on the mid-month drop next week

  7. At long last some decent demos to download , been a barren year for consoles bar Skyrim in 2012. I have yet to try that and come to think of it i havent bought a new game this whole year .

  8. That Max Payne deal for PS+ is sounding attractive. Can anyone chime in on this? Is the Rockstar Pass worth it or I’m better off buying the game and one or two DLC separately?

    thanks in advance!

    • I’m in no better position to answer this than yourself, but on the surface it is certainly a very attractive offer. Looking at Amazon and Play, you can’t get Max Payne 3 for much less than £25, not including the DLC pass, that is priced at £20 on PSN. DLCwise however, only one of the 3 released packs cost anything at the moment, so whether the rest of the paid ones are any good is a bit of an unknown it would seem.

      I suppose it depends on how bothered you are with the multiplayer!

      • That’s what I though, but thanks for at least putting it into perspective. I’m not really a big multiplayer kind of guy, although I spent hours on Uncharted 3. If this one is as fun as UC3, then money well spent :)

        Gonna check the forums to see if anyone can comment on the multiplayer differences between the two :)

      • In typing my original response I managed to convince myself to buy it!

  9. Are we getting Counter-Strike GO or not..?
