European and North American PSN update (September 4)


This week’s European PSN update is all about Pure. This game has been steadily inching its way into the mainstream with a unique mix of MotorStorm meets SSX. At its heart Pure is a racing game (which won an award for Best Racing Game at E3 2008), but it’s a refreshing change from the beautiful, yet bland off-road games we’ve seen recently. Pure ships out near the end of this month.

The rest of the update is sort of take it or leave it. We can purchase the Haze “Destruction” Pack (we won’t) if we’re just dying to spend some cash. A more reasonable purchase is the Warhawk “Triple Combo Pack” that includes every booster pack to date for £7.99/€11.99.

If there’s one thing we can look forward to in North American PSN updates it’s a ton of video content. Most of it is free, but the latest episode of Qore will set us back $2.99 This episode also includes 30 day access to the demo for MotorStorm 2: Pacific Rift when it becomes available on September 11, 2008.

Surprisingly, NFL Head Coach ’09 can be downloaded in its entirety for $49.99. Just make sure you have 5GB of space before you cue it up.
