European and North American PSN releases (October 16)

I’m not going to pretend today’s (Ed.: Yes, we’re cutting it close) update for Europe is the most awesome thing that’s ever happened. Compared to weeks past, I’d say it’s pretty mediocre. Let’s be positive about this and look at the bright side. We did get a good firmware update this week, and there are a couple demos for two great games to download. Those demos are for Brothers in Arms: Hell’s Highway and MotorStorm: Pacific Rift. Those of us who are still playing The Eye of Judgment will be happy to download the Biolith Rebellion #1-#3 set to dish out some bar code-style justice.

North America saw a bit of a delay due to some “unscheduled maintenance” that caused the PlayStation Store and some account management options to be temporarily offline. Thankfully everything is up and running at full capacity now and the store has been updated. SOCOM: Confrontation is the most notable addition to the store. It’s going for $39.99 and does not have Trophy support at this time. There’s also some complaints about a glitch-ridden multiplayer mode that has some owners up in arms. We’re not going to let some glitch stop us right? Well maybe for a little while.
