PSN and Retail Releases for the Week of 8/8/10

There is something for everyone this week on Sony’s consoles. First and foremost, EA’s official NFL juggernaut, Madden NFL 11 is available on the PS3, PSP and PS2 if you look hard enough. This is easily the biggest sports game release until NBA JAM comes back. Scott Pilgrim vs. the World: The Game is also available this week for download, The game is based on the graphic novels (thankfully) and seems to be channeling the spirits of Final Fight, River City Ransom and Double Dragon. Who says 2-D side-scrolling beat-em-ups are dead? Red Dead Redemption is getting some DLC in the form of the Legends and Killers multiplayer pack which reaches far back into Red Dead Revolver for new skins. Fans can now play as their favorite characters like “what’s his face” and “guy with a gun”—it’s okay if you never played Red Dead Revolver. Naughty Bear is also getting DLC with Episode 8: Danger Bear. The new episode is free monetarily, but will cost you mentally as well as spiritually.

 

Playstation PLUS content returns this week with free versions of the PSone classic Syphon Filter, an hour long trial of Red Faction: Guerilla and the latest episode of Qore. Syphon Filter dealt with themes like bioterrorism and clandestine government agencies and was one of the better stealth third-person shooters available when it was released back in 1999. Red Faction: Guerilla effectively reboots the Red Faction franchise into an open-world action game. A free hour is more than enough time to experience the game’s most impressive feature— fully destructible environments. Episode 27 of Qore continues to keep you updated on all things Sony and even includes a demo of Ter-Rover.
