psn Update: A New Challenger Has Entered
There is plenty to love in this weeks PSN update, and a bit of darkness has leaked on to it as well. There are plenty for fighting fans this week as Persona 4 Arena hits the store for $29.99. PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale finally gets its first batch of DLC with Kat (Gravity Rush) and Emmett Graves (Starhawk) are added to the roster as well as a new level “Fearless”. Fearless will run you $1.99 and Kat and Emmett are free for two weeks and then they will be $4.99 apiece. I purchased Fearless last night and you get the PS3 and Vita version of the level for the $1.99 price which is a great deal. Twisted Metal is having a birthday sale this week. It has been one year since the release of the newest Twisted Metal on the PS3. There is a Twisted Metal Birthday Bundle ($39.99), it contains Twisted Metal (PS3), Twisted Metal (1995) PSOne Classic, Twisted Metal 2 PSOne Classic, and Twisted Metal Black (PS2). That is a great deal considering the PS3 Twisted Metal is going for $29.99 on the PSN. Twisted Metal Black and Twisted Metal (1995) PSOne Classic get their own stand alone release as well for $7.99 and $5.99 respectfully. The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim finally receives the Dragonborn DLC and is at a special launch week pricing at $9.99 (50% off). It seems that the wait for the DLC was well worth it. As always check out the Official PlayStation Blog for all the details. I got to play through Kat and Emmett’s Arcade runs last night on Battle Royale last night and I like them both. Kat is very combo heavy and Emmett, though relying heavily on his circle drops, is a fun ranged fighter.
Reminder: The Final Fantasy sale is in it’s last week, plenty of good titles at 50% off. I just picked up Final Fantasy Tactics: The War of Lions and Dissidia Duodecim for $14.99. That was $5 cheaper than just buying Dissidia alone. Grab them up while you can.
