North American PSN Update: 3/11/10

12 Comments | posted

The North American update is pretty beefy and carries a lot of content for everyone. While users who have been waiting for DLC for MAG, BioShock 2, GRID, and a few other titles can finally latch out, guys waiting for new titles like Mega Man 10 can get their fix that way. The PSP finally releases Rock Band Lite on its end as well. Over all, it’s not too shabby at all, but there is always slight room for improvement.

Full update below.

    “Section 8 Wallpaper (x4)

    Confirmation that Section 8 is coming to PS3?

  • Dr. Moogle

    @jaz: what is section 8?

    also, wasnt Cellfactor: Psychokinetic Wars already at $5? and does anyone know if its good or not?

  • Thorzilla

    What the hell if Rock Band Unplugged Lite?

  • Dr. Moogle

    @thorzilla: its rockband unplugged with less songs……lol

  • TRF

    I may pick up Endwar if it’s only $15.

  • ARC-1300

    didn’t find much to get on this update , except for the free costumes for MAG, other done that, just nothing but wish wash.

  • Dreamer_Lion

    Hey, is Megaman 10 any good?. II’m thinking about getting it but I want to hear some feedback.

    BTW, I have an idea: How about you guys make a Friday article called “PSN Suggestions” or something?. There we could ask about a game released the day prior to those that bought it or just recommend a game we played. It’s all about community interaction.

    How does that sound?.

  • VofEscaflowne

    If you liked previous Mega Man entries, then yes, it’s a fun game. Great music (although Mega Man 9 had a more solid soundtrack I think), challenge is plenty, and it’s just classic old school Mega Man at its finest. It does have a lot more replay value because you now have the option to play as Protoman as well. The various challenges will also keep you busy, assuming you have the patience and skills to complete them. And if this is an extra bonus for you, it has Home unlockables. A Mega Man and Protoman shirt! Yay? :p

  • taus90

    MLB 10 demo that is the only thing that interest me from the list @ jaz what is section 8

  • jaz350z

    Section 8 is basically a Tribes rip-off

  • WonsAuto

    MEGA MAN! Always a good time!

    Also, is there any reason why they put the Lite version of Rock Band Unplugged on the store as opposed to the full version?

  • scottspeed
