PSN Roundup Part II

It's all about the Spring Sale this week as Matt explained in the first part of this week's Roundup. The obvious PSP deals to go for there would be the excellent God of War: Chains of Olympus which is a prequel to the first PS2 game. Go on; go through all four games in a long, blood-soaked weekend. The three GTA reductions are pretty good looking too. The rest of them can be found cheaper on UMD though to be honest, not necessarily second hand either.

There are some permanent reductions too. There's only one PSN game in there, Inferno Pool which might be worth a gamble at the price. The PSP title reductions are typically a waste of time for anyone happy to buy UMDs still.

  • Inferno Pool (was – £6.29/€7.99 now – £2.39/€2.99)
  • FIFA 09(PSP) (was – £29.99/€39.99 now – £15.99/€19.99)
  • Need for Speed: Pro Street(PSP) (was – £17.99/€21.99 now – £15.99/€19.99)
  • Tiger Woods PGA Tour 10(PSP) (was – £29.99/€39.99 now – £15.99/€19.99)
  • Madden NFL 10(PSP) (was – £29.99/€39.99 now – £15.99/€19.99)
  • NBA Live 10(PSP) (was – £29.99/€39.99 now – £15.99/€19.99)
  • Burnout Dominator(PSP) (was – £17.99/€21.99 now – £15.99/€19.99)
  • Marvel Super Hero Squad(PSP) (was – £29.99/€34.99 now – £13.99/€17.99)
  • WWE Smackdown vs Raw 2010(PSP) (was – £31.99/€39.99 now – £23.99/€29.99)

Add-On Game Content

Highlights include the first DLC for Heavy Rain featuring Madison Paige in 'The Taxidermist' (£3.19). It'll be familiar to long term followers of the game as one of the demo scenes from previous expos. Dragon Age: Origins gives us some DLC for free for a change instead of charging full game price. It's nice to see some DLC for Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing, but the prices are, well, a bit crap. Dante's Inferno and Army of Two: The 40th Day are also getting some DLC lovin' too.

Look out for Brink, it's going to be huge. I saw it running at the Leeds Eurogamer Expo and can't wait to get my hands on it, expect the hype machine to really get behind this one. Take a look at the video for Patchwork Heroes too, an absolute gem of a PSP title that we'll be reviewing right here at Dealspwn very soon. People are starting to sit up and take notice of Kane and Lynch 2 too as it already looks better than the piss-poor original.
