European and North American PSN releases (September 25)

I’m not hesitant to say this week’s PSN update is possibly the best ever. Virtually every game offered is worth the price, and there’s even 3 demos to try. Let’s start off with the most obvious release of the week which is Mega Man 9. The retromaniac in us is frothing at the mouth at the chance to play this game on Sony’s black box. If some of us are a little hesitant on dropping £6.99/€9.99 for Mega Man 9, there’s a demo that will quickly change most of our minds. Just think, soon we’ll be breaking Sixaxis controllers left and right just like the good ol’ days.

Next up is the highly anticipated release of WipEout HD for £11.99/€17.99. We never thought we’d have to pay so little for a game that runs at 60fps in full 1080p, Dolby 5.1 surround sound, customizable soundtracks, online multiplayer, Trophy support (at a later date), and other cool things that must be experienced to fully explain. But wait, there’s even more racing goodness drifting on PSN!

There’s a lot of Burnout stuff going on today. Besides the ridiculed Trophy patch, Burnout Paradise itself is now available to download for £24.99/€29.99. Honestly the game is worth more than this even without shiny Trophies to brag about. We can then bring the action to the PSP with Burnout: Dominator for £17.99/€24.99 and Burnout: Legends for £14.99/€19.99.

Things are somewhat identical for North America with the exception of the Burnout games for PSP. Instead we have the option of purchasing Untold Legends Brotherhood of the Blade for $14.99 and Puzzle Quest: Challenge of the Warlords for the same price. There’s a new PSN puzzle title called GEON Emotions for $9.99 which once made an appearance on Xbox LIVE Arcade several months ago. We can then choose to get our quiz on with 3 packs of add on content for Buzz! Quiz TV that range from $6 to $8 to round out the week.
