PSN Roundup - Store Update 8th July

This week's PSN store update brings us a couple of standout bargains. Afterburner Climax, the fabulously shiny but extremely expensive rail shooter remake, has been reduced to a wallet-friendly £3.99. Lead and Gold: Gangs of the Wild West has also been slashed in half... and whilst it's unlikely to tempt to many people away from Red Dead Redemption, it does offer some shallow online shooting thrills. It's more Team Fortress than Fistful of Dollars, though!

As you'd expect, the new update also adds a bucketload of new games and DLC. Monkey Island 2: Special Edition offers gamers another chance to revisit the hilarious Lucasarts classic (along with some slick remastered graphics)- and a bundle deal of Bad Company 2's Onslaught Mode with Battlefield 1943 delivers some serious shooting action.

In terms of DLC, Dragon Age has received yet another odious, pointless bleb of Bioware content (seriously, just stick with the Awakening expansion if you're desperate for more dark fantasy) and the long awaited Marvel costumes have arrived for LittleBigPlanet.

Check out the full update here.

any pref on Monkey Island on PS3 or XBOX? Fancy downloading it but wondered which was best.

One of the few games I ever bothered to complete...an awesome awesome game. i do hope its got the original basic sounds too not updated ones, was part of the fun

How much wood would a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?

Good question. It's a great game regardless of the platform- but the 360 version is slightly cheaper thanks to the Microsoft Point exchange rate. You can currently get 2100 points for between £15.99 (from ShopTo) and £16.99 (from Play)- and using the more expensive option, this works out at £6.47 compared to PSN's £7.99. This will be a false saving for some, however, since the saving's made gradually over time (requiring a bigger initial outlay). Whoa, sorry, I went all serious there for a sec.

Say what you want about Microsoft Points, but they can be made to work for us! Naturally, stay tuned for PSN card and Microsoft point deals- we're scouring for some now. Hope this helps!
