Fracture, Mercenaries 2 Demos and Full D3 Games On PSN
It’s Thursday, which means the PlayStation Store has been flooded with new downloadable games, demos, videos, and all sorts of other goodies. The headliner content for PlayStation 3 owners are two new demos: Mercenaries 2 and Fracture. Anyone who’s played Mercs 2 or read 1UP’s review can tell you the game is undeniably fun, but what about Fracture, LucasArts’ new shooter centered around destroying terrain? Give the demo a try, and then come back and see if you agree with Anthony Gallegos’ preview of the game from Leipzig.
PSP owners are in for a real treat compared with the usual slap in the face they see in the downloadable space — in addition to a demo and trailer of NBA 09, both Cube and PQ: Practical Intelligence Quotient have been released for $10 each. These are the first two of six games being released on the PlayStation Store by D3 Publisher, with some classics like Dead Head Fred and Puzzle Quest still to come.
Much like this past weekend on Xbox Live, this upcoming weekend is a Double XP event in Call of Duty 4, and to celebrate the price of the Variety Map Pack has been cut in half from $10 to $5. Complimenting that is a new Rock Band album from Megadeth, and a ton of new videos from the AST Dew Tour. Hit up the PlayStation Blog for the full list of releases.
