– A title update is available for Rainbow Six Vegas 2, that fixes fifteen problems and makes nine improvements. Achievement hunters will be happy to note that their long-lost, Private First Class points will be given after they download the patch and load their gamer profile.
– Army of Two downloadable content became available with the SSC Challenge Pack. Costing players 600 points ($7.50), the pack will offer four new obstacle-course style maps for a pair of two main teams. Winners receive cash to modify their in-game weapons.
– The Metal Gear Online beta, after a few missteps, is now officially working. After downloading at least one new update, players can try the demo until may 11th.
– Level Uper N’Gai’s Croal’s most anticipated game after last year’s E3 was Echochrome. Three levels are available in the Playstation Store demo, for both PS3 and PSP oweners.
– Although PS3 owners will have to wait for their RSV2 Patch, they can kill time by checking out the changes in the Hot Shots Golf: Out of Bounds update. Players will now be able to play with soccer balls in the lobbies, and while on the links, walk around and taunt other golfers. Still no voice chat, but Japanese players have a downloadable course and two new characters.
– PSP players can download Kingdom of Paradise onto their memory sticks for $10.99 through the Playstation store. Our money is on R-Types which both PSP and PS3 players can enjoy. It’s a PS1 game that we haven’t seen in ages. Can the critically acclaimed Einhander be coming soon?
Grand Theft Auto 4
Wow, this looks like this is an early contender for game of the year. Rockstar has managed to fix nearly all the problems with past installments, now the only question remains: which version to buy? The PS3 with slightly prettier graphics or the 360 edition with downloadable content?
