LBP costumes lead PSN update

Festive cupboards filled with goods.

Sony has restocked the PlayStation Store cupboards to include a free Santa outfit for LittleBigPlanet. Ho ho ho.

The same game also hails the arrival of four Street Fighter-themed costumes, featuring togs worn by Ryu, Chun-Li, Guile and Zangief. These are GBP 1.59 a pop, or all four for GBP 4.79.

Puzzle Quest: Challenge of the Warlords - Revenge of the Plague Lord is up for grabs at GBP 15.99. And full games NBA Live '09 and Tiger Woods PGA Tour '09 can be downloaded for GBP 29.99 and GBP 31.99, respectively.

Brain Challenge (GBP 7.99) and Jet Rider 2 (GBP 3.99) are the premium PSP games on offer, but there's also what appears to be the entire Football Manager Handheld 2009 game there - for free! We've not got a PSP to test this, and the file is only 44MB, so perhaps this is a data refresher.

Elsewhere there's the Escalation Pack DLC for Tom Clancy's EndWar at GBP 7.99, and the No Doubt Singles album for Rock Band, which charges GBP 0.99 a track, or GBP 9.99 for the 13-strong collection.

There's also those Nirvana and Euro-band Guitar Hero World Tour songs (GBP 1.59 each, or GBP 4.39 a trio), plus trailers for Crash Commando and Söldner-X: Himmelsstürmer.
