PlayStation Store Update: 04/06/14 – Pixeljunk, Pets & Hyperdimension Neptunia

The first update of the month has, as per usual, heralded a update to PlayStation Plus and a new month-long sale on the store, but after the recent highs of the last couple of weeks, the store update itself has a lot to live up to. Sadly, the store is taking much longer to update than usual, so there’ll be no links to store pages this week.


Pixeljunk Shooter Ultimate lands as one of the headline acts from the PS+ update, giving you the two Pixeljunk Shooter games in a lovely little bundle that’s Cross-buy for PS4 and PS Vita. You’ll get this with PS+, but you can also buy it separately for £10.25/€11.99.

The other game to drop on the PS4 this week is Murdered: Souls Suspect, also out on PS3, allowing you to investigate your own murder from beyond the grave. It’s received some mixed reviews, despite the intriguing concept, but if it tickles your fancy, it’ll be £49.99/€69.99 on PS4 or £39.99/€49.99 on PS3, when it is released on Friday.

It appears to be a busy week for the PS3, but it’s really catching up with belated releases for Don Bradman Cricket 14 for £39.99/€49.99, Magus at £11.59/€14.49 and the PS2 classics release of Shin Megami Tensei: Digital Devil Saga for £6.49/€7.99. There’s also the Ultra Street Fighter IV DLC pack, which adds a bundle of new characters and features to Super Street Fighter IV for £11.99/€14.99.

It’s the PS Vita which gets the most love, starting off with the delightfully barmy looking Hyperdimension Neptunia: Producing Perfection, in which you play as the producer to some digital japanese pop anime world singing contest… or something. It’s out on Friday for £34.99/€39.99, but see if you can decipher the trailer first:

PlayStation Vita Pets brings doggie dress up to the handheld, for £19.99/€24.99, also on Friday, but back in the here and now, you can kick back and reap what you sow in Farming Simulator 14 for £28.49/€34.99. Alternatively, the third episode of The Walking Dead has shuffled across, and you can grab it for £3.99/€4.99 or as part of the season pass.

Finally, get some more Japanese-style gaming from Monster Monpiece, a card battle game, in which you need to stroke both sides of your Vita vigorously, in order to lock cards and… uh… remove clothing.

If you’d like to have an “extreme rub”, then that’ll be £23.99/€29.99. Oh, and there’s something similar in Hyperdimension Neptunia, too.

  1. I really hope Murdered: Souls Suspect ends up on PS+ at some point. I really want to play it, but don’t want to pay for it. I feel guilty even writing that.

    • Bad Youles!

    • If it helps, SimplyGames are selling it for £30 on their Ebay store.
      I like the look of the game and might pick it up (once I know for sure if TLoU is out this month or not)

  2. I find it strange that Murdered Soul Suspect is more expensive on PS4 than PS3 here, but they’re the same price in the USA.

    • That’s the case with all games in the US, they are the same price on any platform, and the same price in the PSN store as they are on Amazon and other places.

      I guess US customers wont put up with the same sh*t we do, so they have to price things a bit more sanely.

  3. I was hoping we’d get 1001 spikes today after it released yesterday on the US store, but after a quick investigate I found put that it hasn’t even been rated for Europe yet so who knows when we’ll get it (sometime this summer according to Nicalis’ twitter feed).

  4. PJSU for me, and the absence of links is handy because i forgot to leave my PS4 in standby ;)

  5. Is it me or hasn’t then new Playstation Plus content dropped?

    • the plus stuff is there via the site if you search individually for it but not via the PS4. Absolute joke to be honest, especially with E3 around the corner.

      • Yeah just had to individually search for the games. Pretty annoying as the instant game collection still has the games from last month advertised!

  6. Just played Pixeljunk Shooter for the first time (shamefully late, I know!) and was instantly reminded of Gravity Force 1 and 2 on the Amiga. Anyone else remember those?

  7. Can’t wait to get my clammy hands on Monster Monpiece.
