PSN Friday Update – May 28, 2010

The end of May brings a massive Playstation Store update. Today marks the last week of Sony’s “Spring Fling Sale”, offering $5 off Prince of Persia Classic ($4.99 now; regular $9.99). This price is only available until Memorial Day, so act quick if you want some old school platforming.

The highlights of this week’s update on the PS3 side include Söldner-X 2: Final Prototype, the sequel to 2008 shooter Söldner-X: Himmelsstürmer (for $3 more than the original, you get all-new levels, a dynamic difficulty system based on your score, and a name you can actually pronounce); a slightly late demo for Pixeljunk Shooter; and the free PS3-exclusive Monster Hunter armor for Capcom’s Lost Planet 2. Of note, this week’s “PSOne Classic”, Delta Force Urban Warfare, is only playable on the PS3, which is a first for the Classics Line.

In the PSP section, the clear winner is Sony’s answer to Mario Kart, ModNation Racers. Building upon the “Play, Create, Share” motto started by Little Big Planet, the focus of this game is to build your own tracks and race a fully customized kart around them. Joining it on the downloadable front is Atlus’ Hexyz Force. Giving the PSPGo a much needed injection of hardcore, turn-based RPG, Hexyz Force contains two playable protagonists with unique perspectives on the story. Promising an estimated 50 hours of gameplay, this should be a solid pickup for any fan of classic turn-based RPG’s.

Hit “More” for the full list.
