See if you can spot the one item in the week’s North American PlayStation Store update that made me sharply put down my cup of herbal tea and exclaim “this industry, my god”.
The only full game this week is Deadpool, which is pulling mixed reviews.
However, there’s quite a lot in the PSN category – Hotline Miami, which supports Vita cross-buy; Magic 2014 – Duels of the Planeswalkers; Motorbike; Pool Nation; Ride to Hell: Retribution; and Ubisoft’s free-to-play multiplayer gladiator sim Spartacus Legends. The Vita gets one other title – Muramasa Rebirth.
There’s also a pair of PS2 Classics – Riding Star and Warship Gunner 2 – as well as a bundle of Creat Studios games and an Indie Bundle including Jetpack Joyride.
PlayStation Plus subscribers scoree a free copy of Zero Escape: Virtue’s Last Reward, plus discounts on Escape Plan, Fat Princess, Hydrophobia: Prophecy and Pool Nation.
Demos are available for Magic 2014 – Duels of the Planeswalkers on PS3 and Farming Simulator on Vita. *record scratch* I’m sorry, what? Okay. Okay. That’s fine. Yes.
In DLC land, the citizens are restlessly clamouring to advise you of new content for BioShock: Infinite; Borderlands 2; Fuse; Grid 2; Guacamelee; Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory; LittleBigPlanet Karting; Ride to Hell: retribution; Paint Park Plus and Spartacus Legends.
