PSN Update: Vanquish, Game Sales, Castle Crashers
Some weeks, the PlayStation Network update is just plain boring. But then again, you can't expect anticipated goodness 52 times a year.
This particular week should prove appealing to all PlayStation 3 owners, though. Firstly, a whole lot of games have dropped in price - including the 9 from TikGames/Creat Studios - and you can stock up on a bunch of really entertaining titles. Secondly, a few big demos are now available: the first is R.U.S.E., the "one-of-a-kind" RTS that lets you "control the action from the heart of the battlefield," and the second is the hotly anticipated Vanquish. As of now, you can test out the Velocity Attack demo and see if Platinum's rapid-fire new action extravaganza is your cup of tea. Remember, it's slated to launch on October 12 and we've been seeing a lot of the game lately, thanks to a bunch of trailers and videos. Thirdly and finally, the award-winning Castle Crashers is available to purchase on the PSN this week, and that's a major addition to the Network's library. If you're not convinced, you can always go for the free trial before springing for the full game, which has a price tag of $14.99.
Yeah, there are plenty of reasons to log on this week. By the way, we should have our Vanquish hands-on impressions within the next day, so stay tuned for that.
