PSN Roundup: Deals, Price Drops and Minigolf

Sony loves updating the PSN store in huge messy bundles every Tuesday, and we've had time to sort through the list and try out the offerings. Here we go!

Deals of The Week

(available until 9th June)

  • Wakeboarding HD (£11.99 £6.29)
  • Numblast (£3.99 £2.39)
  • Magic Orbz – Bundle Pack (£9.99 £5.19)
  • Magic Orbz – Booster Pack and Winter Pack (£2.39 £1.19)
  • Savage Moon: The Hera Campaign (PSP) (£6.29 £3.19)
  • Echochrome Micro (PSP) (£6.29 £3.99)
  • Numblast (PSP) (£3.99 £2.39)
  • LittleBigPlanet – The Gardens Level Kit (PSP) (£2.39 £1.19)
  • LittleBigPlanet – The Sack That Time Forgot (PSP) (£2.39 £1.19)
  • Fortix (mini) (£3.49 £2.49)

Permanent Price Drops

It's still worth holding out for a cheap physical copy if at all possible, but there are a couple of decent deals here.

  • Soldner-X: Himmelsturmer (£7.99 £6.29)
  • This is where the flavour is. Soldner-X is an awesome SHMUP with smooth graphics, 12 frenzied levels and two player co-op. Well worth a punt for shooter fans.

  • Jak and Daxter: The Lost Frontier (PSP) (£24.99 £14.99)
  • Resistance Retribution (PSP) (£24.99 £14.99)
  • LocoRoco 2 (PSP) (£19.99 £14.99)
  • MotorStorm: Arctic Edge (PSP) (£24.99 £14.99)
  • Gran Turismo (PSP) (£24.99 £14.99)

New to PSN

Not an impressive selection this week. A few people will get a kick out of Planet Minigolf and Me & My Katamari is as bizarrely entertaining as ever for PSP fans, but there's nothing worth getting too excited about.

  • Planet Minigolf (PS3) (£6.29): An accurate minigolf simulation, Planet Minigolf emulates both the exciting highs and frustrating lows of the nation's favourite miniature windmill-based pastime. It's fun while it lasts, but the finnicky controls make for an experience that's frequently more stressful than fun.
  • Death Track: Resurrection (£11.29) (PS3): We've got our hands on Death Track before the Americans, but I don't think we've got much to crow about. It's a standard racer with some fairly impressive graphics, but a number of minor irritations and niggles will probably stop it from truly making a dent in the market.
  • Xyanide: Resurrection (£7.99) (PSP): A pretty and frenetic bullet hell shooter that will taxes the PSP's hardware. Not bad.
  • Me & My Katamari (£15.99) (PSP): Roll a ball around to pick up stuff for your worrying Space-King father. Concept is solid as always, but the controls are a little nuanced.
  • What Did I Do To Deserve This, My Lord!? (£11.99) (PSP): A truly unique tower defense title that's let down by unpredictable unit behavior. Imagine the lovechild of Flowers vs Zombies and Dig Dug and you're somewhere near the mark.
  • Block Cascade Fusion (£2.39) (PSP): Create lines of falling blocks to clear the board. Kinda like Tetris... in fact, it's basically Tetris. Not bad for the price though.
