Sony Weekly Update (Jan. 28 – Feb. 3)

By | 6 years ago 


It’s a busy week for Sony fans. So let’s not waste any time.

Uncharted 2 fans will be excited to see the recently announced “Hero Pack” add-on is now available. Play as Evil Cole from inFamous or a Helghan soldier from Killzone 2, among several others, as you complete in the online co-op or competitive modes. The price is a little steep for what you’re getting but this will certainly be a worthwhile purchase for fans of Sony’s other franchises.

Now that you’ve purchased your new costume load-outs, make sure to encourage your friends to download the Uncharted 2 single player demo – so they can experience first hand the most critically acclaimed title of the year. There’s no doubt they’ll want to pick up a copy afterwards – which gives you a few more people to kick around in your new Chimera threads.

Assassin’s Creed II also received the “Battle of Forli” DLC – an entire new chapter in the story of Ezio Auditoire de Firenze as he defends the city of Forli from the Orsi Brothers. This section represents one of the two missing DNA strands from Assassin’s Creed II and allows you another ride on Da Vinci’s flying machine (and subsequently another shot at the infamous “Fly Swatter” trophy – which many people missed in the main game).

The big news for the PSP is a new batch of LittleBigPlanet content releases including new costumes, stickers, and level creation tools. In addition, make sure to check out the new Minis available this week.
