Devil May Cry 4 demo hits the PlayStation Store this week. Nero asks: "Do you feel lucky?" Credit: Capcom.
Covering both of the main regional bases this week, here are the full PlayStation Store listings for the US and European markets.
This week’s new content update sees the likes of PixelJunk Monsters and Jet Moto arriving as full downloadable games in the US, while Capcom fans over the pond also finally get to enjoy a little one-on-one time with the action-friendly Devil May Cry 4 demo.
Over in Europeland, downloadable games Syphon Filter: Combat Ops and Judge Dredd(?) are available, while demos arriving alongside Devil May Cry 4 include SEGA Rally Revo and PixelJunk Monsters – hopefully the full game won’t be too far behind.
Extra DLC arrives in the form of even more Rock Band tracks and another Folklore add-on for the US market, while the EU is limited to a trailer for Civilization: Revolution and a selection of Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare wallpapers. Hmm. Nice.
As per usual, the US content selection is considerably beefier than the EU (afterthought) offering… but we won’t waste your time or ours trying to feign surprise or attempting to compose a rant of indignation, except to say that it sucks, as always.
Here are the content lists in full, and we use the word ‘full’ very loosely when describing the EU update:
