North American PSN Update: 3/4/10

20 Comments | posted

The North American update this week isn’t too shabby, but it’s missing a huge demo that should have been included. In case you can’t figure it out, I’m talking about MLB 10: The Show. While we’re aiming to have our review done once the roster fix hits the game on March 8th, it would’ve been good to give a lot of potential buyers the opportunity to check the game out. Other great features on this week’s update include The Tester Ep. 3, MLB 10: The Show for PSP, Just Cause 2 demo, MLB 2K10 Demo, and a slew of Dante’s Inferno packs.

Full update below.

    Lots of good stuff here- the Just Cause 2 demo, great price on the two Penny Arcade games (which I loved), and, most importantly, Cubs themes for my PS3 and PSP! Love that baseball’s back.

    The lack of a MLB 10 demo sucks, also “ew” at those “buy your way to victory” microtransactions for The Show. I guess people have been buying a lot of those for games like Madden if they decided to do it for this game.

  • Moocows111111

    Good new on Just Cause 2, Be downloading it maybe tomorrow as I’m swamped with work, also the 3rd episode for the Tester is out, I’m going to be watching that even though I think the Show is pretty lame, Just curious on how everything will play out though.

    Dante’s Inferno: English and French Version

    0_o

  • VofEscaflowne

    @Dr. Moogle

    Why are you surprised? Although I don’t understand why they don’t put both languages on a single download, Canada has a lot of French speaking people (myself included). Quebec is very French, many who don’t even speak English. Heck, there’s even some games that don’t get released in Quebec at all if a French version exists somewhere else.

    As for the update, pretty weak overall. The Just Cause 2 demo is entertaining but nothing I’d buy at full price. I was looking for the LittleBigPlanet PSP update for the free Superstar sticker but it seems NA got screwed over again for DLC. What a surprise.

  • Dr. Moogle

    @VofEscaflowne: well if you put it that way….why not spanish?

    @the JC2 demo: well it seems interesting tho…the first one wasnt that good, but ill give this one a chance

  • Moocows111111

    ” well if you put it that way….why not spanish?”

    @Dr. Moogle

    Canada has two official Languages, English and French therefore you need an English version and a French Version

    In the United States the official language there is only English

    Since we are talking about North America it generally means Us, And Canada

    Since Canada has English and French as native tongue, and USA only has English there is only 2 Languages that needs to be released which is English and French. Sorry If I had to repeat it alot of times but hope you get it.

  • Dr. Moogle

    Ahh i get it…i didnt know French was an official language in Canada, excuse my ignorance

    but im confused…….why isnt HR’s DLC: The Taxidermist, up? i cant redeem my code either :(

  • Moocows111111

    “HR’s DLC: The Taxidermist, up? i cant redeem my code either”

    Go check the Playstation Store now, if its not there try again tomorrow XD

  • SonyJunkie

    Will be getting Just Cause 2 Demo and The Tester. (I like it)

  • WonsAuto

    @Moocows: Technically, the US doesn’t have an official language. It’s just sort of understood that way.

    @Dr. Moogle: The Heavy Rain DLC is up now, I just downloaded it a couple of hours ago.

  • taus90

    Nothing New same as the Eu PS store update.

  • Moocows111111

    “@Moocows: Technically, the US doesn’t have an official language. It’s just sort of understood that way.”

    Just over half of the States have English as their official Language and the rest are either, its not official but the majority of the people speak it, and the other is either Bilingual or Trilingual

    On- Topic I’m getting the DLC from a friend of mine, does anyone know how long it is before I being to download it?

  • Fatality

    nice im gonna play jsut cause!!!!!

  • Blackou7

    Not much other than – 2010 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Dynamic Theme, this is a MUST buy.

  • Dr. Moogle

    awesome, im DLing the Taxidermist right now!

  • 12carzam

    yes mlb 2k10 but the show would have been better

  • scottspeed

    very rare the eu store gets demo’s before the US. We have had just cause two for a week longer which isnt much really but still. Apart from that not much to get excited about really.

  • M.n.M

    Will be downloading the Tester and the BBC2 theme.

  • LastBoss

    Just Cause, what a hidden gem. I played that game on the 360 way back then,

  • 30NIGHTCRAWLER30

    Just Cause 2 demo is just EPIC WIN.
