European and North American PSN releases / August 14


Today’s European update is full of demos and NASCAR. On the flip side there are a couple PS1 classic titles to download for £3.49/€4.99. Add on the A-Z listing in the All Games section of the PLAYSTATION Store and we’ve got a pretty beefy update.

The first classic PS1 game is Driver, originally released in 1998, where we play a cop who happens to be quite handy behind the wheel. It’s our job to impress various crime bosses by doing missions for them (sound familiar)? The game features gameplay in the cities of New York, San Francisco, Miami and Los Angeles.

The second game is called Sheep and it actually does involve herding sheep. It’s a puzzle game where we must guide four types of sheep to the finish line while avoiding traps and other obstacles. It’s an interesting concept no doubt that could give us an excuse to whip out the PSP while waiting around somewhere.

Three demos are now available to download at our leisure as well. We have the options of Tiger Woods 09, Monster Madness, and FaceBreaker. The FaceBreaker demo comes with a face mapping option that works with the PlayStation Eye so you can put your likeness in the game.

North American PS3 owners see the return of a couple of classic games, one of which is a modern remake of a great game. First off, Bionic Commando: Rearmed is available for $9.99. It’s a remake of the NES game which features Radd Spencer and his bionic arm that allows him to swing across levels. Rearmed features a cooperative mode, completely revamped graphics, a challenge mode, and medals to collect.

Street Fight Alpha wraps up Capcom’s mark on today’s update for $5.99. Street Fighter Alpha featured characters from the Street Fighter and Final Fight series such as Guy, Haggar, and Sodom. By now I think most of us have experienced this amazing fighting game and will pick this up without hesitation.
