EU PlayStation Store update - 26th Oct

Sony discusses Payday Heist absence.

There's still no Payday: The Heist on the European PlayStation Store. But Sony offered a few words about the game's continued absence.

"We are close to being able to confirm the release date of Payday: The Heist and are just waiting for Sony Online Entertainment to provide 100 per cent confirmation, which we hope will be with us later today," wrote EU PlayStation blog manager James Gallagher. "Sony Europe and SOE are working hard to get the game in your hands as soon as possible; thank you for your patience."

The content that is available this week relates to Halloween, which happens on Monday, 31st October. There's a sale, which includes a half-price deal on the Prince of Persia trilogy, plus extra discounts for members of PlayStation Plus.

Big ticket arrivals today are vampire-themed standalone add-on Infamous 2: Festival of Blood (6/10, said Eurogamer), and PixelJunk Sidescroller. There's Battlefield 3 for sale digitally for £50, which is high, and you can't play until Friday (00.01am). There are better Battlefield 3 UK deals on offer elsewhere.

Demos today are Ratchet & Clank All 4 One (5/10, said Eurogamer) multiplayer, and musical-inspired dancing game Grease Dance.

Obsidian's fine action RPG Dungeon Siege 3 welcomes considerable add-on Treasures of the Sun today, and expensive expansion Pirates of the Flying Fortress finally arrives for underdog RPG Two Worlds II on PS3.

Also, unpronouncable new planes for Ace Combat: Assault Horizon. And, phew, Kikikaikai has arrived for Elevator Action Deluxe.

PixelJunk SideScroller.
