PlayStation Store Update | Rushing, Fighting, Leaking Like Crazy

Rejoice, ye Vita owners, because the Gravity Rush demo is available to download ahead of its June 15th launch. Matt describes Gravity Rush as "the best reason to buy a Playstation Vita" in our recent 9/10 review, so be sure to get on it. Otherwise, today marks the debut of flawed Vita FPS Resistance: Burning Skies, which proves that the genre works brilliantly on a handheld but delivers some nasty performance problems. Check out our Resistance: Burning Skies Review for more details, though beware its insulting £39.99 price.

If you fancy some excellent (if visually dated) shooting, the original Ghost Recon is available for £5.49 (PS2). It's a brutal, stealthy and tactical experience compared to its sequels and all the better for it. Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition will set you back £14.99 as a PS3 download, which is actually fairly competitive... especially next to a hilarious £44.99 price tag for Prototype 2.

The pre-E3 week is usually pretty slow, but that didn't stop the latest PS Store Update spilling the beans about Battlefield Premium! You can check out the full list of prices, DLC packs and game updates (and the hastily removed leak) over at the European PlayStation Blog.

The prices of Prototype 2 and Resistance Burning Skies are just laughable, isn't the point of digital distribution that games are cheaper because there is no physical product just the game.

Gonna check out Gravity Rush though looks amazing.

Yes, and it gets worse. Did you know that the US download price for Burning Skies is $35.99, which equates to £23.11? The British price doesn't even attempt to match the American one figure for figure, let alone exchange rate.


Got to love rip-off Britain, multiplied by rip-off download prices...

Jon - was you that did the metro rant right? If so this price thing deserves a rant too

Heh, I'd love to, but I wouldn't know where to begin. The traditional £39.99 AAA retail model is horribly broken as is, even more so on the Vita where we're essentially being told to pay top dollar for ports from second-fiddle developers.

Matt has already explored the Vita pricing issue in an extremely relevant article, which is well worth a read.

Well you should defo discuss it though tbh I just want more of your comedy rants they crack me up. I've also found myself using Matt's term of "I'd play the **** out of that!"
