Another Big PlayStation Store Update

The PlayStation Store has received plenty of great updates over the past month - Wipeout HD was the obvious highlight - but Sony clearly isn't about to slow down. This week's update is huge, so it's time to log on to the Store once again.

This week, the fifth episode of Qore drops, and if you haven't purchased the annual subscription for $24.99, you can pick up this single episode for only $2.99. Linger in Shadows, described as an "experiment in interactive virtual art" is also here, and it comes for the reasonable price of only $2.99 (good news for all you art-y types out there). There's more add-on game content for Hot Shots Golf: Out of Bounds (it's the Fall Fashion Line!), a free Dead Space Obsidian spacesuit, a whole bunch of stuff for FIFA 09 (including the All Leagues Pack for $19.99), two new gameplay modes for Mega Man 9, a new pack for Rock Band, Super Stardust HD with "Solo & Team Modes" for $14.99, a Warhawk demo, part 2 of a documentary-style LittleBigPlanet video (Life in LBP), and a bunch of new trailers. Check out new videos for MotorStorm: Pacific Rift, NBA 09, SOCOM: Confrontation, Bioshock, Legendary, Mercenaries 2: World in Flames, Soul Calibur IV, and Tom Clancy's EndWar.

And starting now, the PlayStation Store will offer premium themes for purchase. If you want the full list - and it's pretty damn massive - head on over to the official PlayStation blog.

Pretty impressive stuff. I gotta wait 'till later to get some of the add-ons and whatnot. I'll be trying some demos tomorrow though.

You can get the Valkyria Chronicles demo for free!! If you're like me and you really, really, want some VC, you were definitely considering episode 5 of Qore. Well, if you're only wanting the VC demo, make yourself an EU/UK psn account and you can download it for free. There's lots of stuff in this episode, so I'm sure it's worth it. But if you wanna save three bucks, here ya go.

Oh come on, you guys completely ignored Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered-Battle-Cars!

Sadly, I didn't enjoy it much. I was really looking foward to this game, but while I was playing, I realized the soccer part of it felt secondary to the driving and crashing into each other. Which was a dissapoinment because I love soccer. The demo kinda sucked too though, the matches ended way too quickly, didn't really let me get a feel for it.

Anyone enjoy it?

And what about the Warhawk demo? Where did that come from? That was cool that they let people who haven't tried it check it out. I'm sure a lot of people are gonna go out and get it after they play it.

@Ben - I saw there was a Guilty Gear game for like $5.99 Something about it being two games in one. I believe it was Guilty Gear 2 and a side scrolling version of it as well. Any idea if it's any good?

Anyone else try it out?

It has guilty gear #reload that is a little tweaked for the PSP and yes a side scrolling battle thingie that well is basically nothing more than a shadow of #reload. I have it on UMD. If you love Guilty Gear you will like it, otherwise, its a toss up.

@Ben - After seeing the update, I was just about to get on the site and suggest you guys do a weekly round-up of everything that got released on the PSN, but you guys beat me to it. You're always doing your job.

@Advent Child - Thanks, I think I'm gonna check it out. I have pretty much every genre for my PSP, except a fighting game. For $5.99 I can live with it if it sucks.
