EU PlayStation Store update 12th October

Castlevania! DA2! Space Marine for Ł50!

This week's EU PlayStation Store update is a threadbare affair, headlined by the delayed 2D side-scroller Castlevania: Harmony of Despair.

Castlevania: HOD was first released last August as part of the Xbox 360's annual Summer of Arcade season, when it scored a frightful 4/10 from Eurogamer's John Teti.

There's still no sign of Mortal Kombat: Arcade Kollection however. Sony previously blamed the six week delay on a "technical issue" with the game.

For those with looser purse strings and who don't like walking to the shops, Warhammer 40K: Space Marine is available to download for a whopping £49.99.

Elsewhere, The Guild actress Felicia Day dons elf ears for new Dragon Age 2 DLC Mark of the Assassin, priced £7.99, while a mixture of free and paid-for Ace Combat Assault Horizon add-ons also arrive.

PlayStation Plus subscribers meanwhile get Resident Evil 5 at 25 per cent off, while everyone can save a couple of quid on Call of Duty add-on content, including DLC for Modern Warfare 2.

The full listing, courtesy of the EU PlayStation blog lies below.
