This week's EU PlayStation Store update is as meagre as they come. Among the crumbs on offer is a downloadable version of King of Fighters 13.
It'll set you back £19.99, and weighs in at 2.3GB. And that's about it.
Well, there's a Season Pass for Darksiders 2 (£11.99), although the game isn't out yet. There's also the Mass Effect 3: Firefight Weapons Pack (£1.59) and more quests for Dragon's Dogma.
Street Fighter 4 has a new world champion: South Korean Akuma player Seon-woo Lee.
The long-awaited King of Fighters 13 patch has been released.
It's out now on PlayStation 3 and will be out soon on Xbox 360, Rising Star Games said.
The patch focuses on improving the fighting game's much maligned online play.
Atlus has delayed the Nests Kyo DLC for the PlayStation 3 version of King of Fighters 13 because of a "technical error".
SNK Playmore is working on a patch for fighting game King of Fighters 13 designed to improve online play.
Publisher Atlus said information around what the netcode patch does, as well as a release date, will be released as soon as possible.
Gamers have complained about King of Fighters 13's online play, which for many is crippled by lag and disconnections.
King of Fighters 13 publisher Atlus is encouraging developer SNK Playmore to improve the game's online performance following complaints from users.
For a developer that once had a reputation for producing some of the most expensive console games ever, it's sad to say that in more recent years, SNK Playmore's output has gone from the bleeding edge of arcade sophistication to lingering in the unflattering depths of bargain bins across the country. And for those of us who still fondly remember the glory days of Mark of the Wolves and The Last Blade, this steady fall from grace has been more than a tad disheartening.
But then hope came in the form of The King of Fighters 12, the long awaited follow-up to Playmore's flagship fighting series and a game that, despite a long list of issues, showed underlying promise. It offered the smallest roster in the series' history, lacked a stable online environment and offered the solo player only a ropey arcade mode that was missing an end boss. But with its lavishly redrawn sprites and sturdy (if unremarkable) fighting system, it was the perfect template for improvement. Thankfully, The King of Fighters 13 is that and more.
The first thing you'll notice is a wide range of familiar faces that have returned after being inexplicably absent from the last game. This includes the impeccably dressed trio of K', Kula Diamond and Maxima, who make up the appropriately titled Team K', as well as the kickboxing credentials of King, the karate skills of Yuri Sakazaki and the scantily-clad ninja acrobatics of Mai Shiranui who make up the reinstated Women Fighters Team. There's also the sinister Mature from Team Iori, the slightly random addition of Hwa Jai from the original Fatal Fury and Mr. Karate himself, Takuma Sakazaki.
