European and North American PSN releases (October 9)

With all the announcements coming out of the Tokyo Game Show, a lot of us probably forgot there was a PSN update today. Sadly I am one of those people, but I’m taking a break from sobbing in a corner to bring us all the list of new content.

The most interesting game (or not a game?) out this week has to be Linger in Shadows. At the time of writing Linger in Shadows is only up on the European store for (£1.99/€2.99) and I all I can say is that it appears to be an interactive art show. However it does contain 16 Trophies so it’s safe to say there is some gameplay involved.

The not so mysterious side of the update is the large amount of add-on content and demos to try. Today demos for Valkyria Chronicles and Hail to the Chimp are available as well as Super Stardust HD Complete for (£6.99/€9.99). SSHD Complete contains all the add on packs that have been released so far which also means there’s potential for getting all the games Trophies for those of us who buy it. Today also marks the day that we get to play as Proto Man in Mega Man 9 for (£1.49/€1.99). Proto Man plays just like Mega Man except he can slide and release a charged shot. In other words, he’s better than Mega Man.

North America is getting Linger in Shadows for $2.99 and a little game called Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars for $14.99. This game is described as “vehicle-based soccer” and runs on the Unreal Engine 3. A lot is packed into this downloadable title such as Trophy support, online matchmaking, custom soundtracks, and the ability to edit replays and upload them to YouTube.

Episode 5 of Qore also debuts today and includes an exclusive demo to Valkyria Chronicles and special artwork. A new suit for Dead Space is available for a limited time for free. The Obsidian Suit sports PS3 colors, extra inventory slots, and increased toughness.

Finally there are a ton of premium XMB themes, ranging from $0.99 to $1.99.
