This Week on the PSN [The NTSC Edition]

Richard Walker

This week on the PlayStation Network sees Crescent Pale Mist coming to the store, bringing magical side-scrolling action as you fight through assassns, monsters and sorcerors. Then there's a couple of demos to try out, with Apache Air Assault descending and CSI: Fatal Conspiracy giving you the chance to do the Columbo thing. Sort of.

Elsewhere, you'll find a load of new DLC to check out, including a free add-on for Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood, despite the fact that the game isn't even out yet. Still, you can gaze at it longingly while you wait for it to arrive next week.

Finally, there's a ton of stuff for The Fight: Lights Out on PS Move, and a few bits for ModNation Racers, Split/Second, Front Mission: Evolved, EyePet, PAIN, Just Cause 2, Hustle Kings and Scott Pilgrim.

More than enough to be getting on with then, until next week's update. Have a good one, people!

  • Grabbing the new Tester and Pulse right now. May I ask why is PULSE Edition 11/9 in red?
  • @1 - It's a link back to the PlayStation Blog that I forgot to get rid of.
  • Scott Pilgrim Pack look's like it could add a few more hour's when i buy the full game this week ^.^ Oh and the Brotherhood DLC is a nice bonus :p
  • Gonna have to look around to see what the ATHF theme looks like before throwing down some cash on it...
  • @4 Its not that impressive. Ima huge ATHF fan, and I dont think its worth $3. KMFDM's "A Drug Against War"? NICE! Feel like Im back in high school!! And GTA:TLaD for 9.99? Thats a steal!
  • >GTAIV: The Lost And Damned – Permanent Price Drop to $9.99 OMGWTF I LOVE YOU FOREVER ROCKSTAR brb, buying it.
  • Yeah for price drops! Gotta go get the lost and the damned now.
  • Only the GTA IV price is a good thing there
  • I bought lost and damned months before price drop, I want my 10 dollars back.
  • Assassins Creed Brotherhood Content out already still waiting for the game. Scott Pilgrim DLC will probably pick up as well
  • @6 & 7: Clearly the other DLC, The Ballad of Gay Tony, sold and continues to sell better than Lost & The Damned, otherwise we would have seen a price drop for both. I'll pick up the Complete Collection to save the space on my hard drive. Not too much for me to d/l this week besides the usual trailers and demos.
  • Free AC Brotherhood FTW is the shit thanks Ubisoft!!!
