PlayStation Store Labor Day Blowout

Posted by: Randy at 9/1/2007 1:14 PM
The PlayStation Store has got its head in the game for Labor Day Weekend.  Finally, instead of merely serving as a movie trailer outlet (okay, so there's trailers for Beowulf and Bee Movie) the Store dropped Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo HD Remix as well as the add-on (and bundle) for Tekken 5 Dark Resurrection.  You can also polish your irons and "woods" in the Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2008 demo, see if those rapper commercials enhance your experience any in the demo for All-Pro Football 2K8, or embark on a journey of endless left turns in the NASCAR '08 demo (well, "endless" until the demo's over).  But wait, there's more:  Get a double-dose of Heavenly Sword with a "making of" video no. 4 ("The Sound of Combat") and anime video no. 4 ("The Divine Birth").  Wait -- where are you going?  They also cranked out a "Surviving the Netherworld" trailer for Folklore -- and while the official press release says you get Clive Barker's Jericho for free, I'm just making an educated guess that it's a free trailer.  So there.  That oughta keep you busy through Monday.


Today’s PLAYSTATION®Store update features Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo HD Remix and a Tekken®5 Dark Resurrection™ online add-on; demos for Tiger Woods PGA Tour® 2008, All-Pro Football 2K8, and NASCAR ’08; and the fourth installments of the Heavenly Sword™ “Making of” video feature and animated series.
