EU PlayStation Store update 31st August

The Baconing! Bodycount! Resistance 3!

Downloadable DeathSpank threequel The Baconing headlines this week's EU PlayStation Store update. As part of Sony's PlayStation Network Play promotion, co-op character Roesha comes unlocked.

The plot picks up from part two, with DeathSpank's dabbling with the Thongs of Virtue causing the appearance of an evil clone, the Anti-Spank, which must be defeated.

PlayStation 3 owners get a demo of Codemasters' destructible shooter Bodycount, while access to the Resistance 3 multiplayer beta opens up to all.

Elsewhere, there's more Toy Story 3 costumes for LittleBigPlanet 2, and the rather premature release of Warhammer 40K: Space Marine's online pass - the game's not out until next week.
