All PS3 owners know that Sony updates the PlayStation Store every Thursday – or at least, they all should know that – and some weeks are more interesting than others.
This week is especially loaded down with appealing…erm…downloads. Okay, that sentence didn't work but that's only because I'm excited to finally be able to sample Bayonetta ; the demo is now available for North American gamers. It has been up on the Japanese Store for quite some time so many of you have already sampled it, but for those of us who haven't had the time and don't have a JPN account, we'll be pouncing now. Furthermore, Call of Duty Classic is now up there for $14.99, you can download the latest Qore episode, and PS1 classics Resident Evil 3: Nemesis and Command & Conquer: Red Alert Retailiation are available for the standard price of $5.99. Oh, and both LittleBigPlanet and Fight Night Round 4 each get a horde of new content, so if you're a fan of either (or both), you'll definitely want to log on and check things out. I suppose you can also try out demos for Fairytale Fights and Guitar Hero: Van Halen but we all have to admit that Bayonetta owns this week.
And all personal feeling aside, I point you in the direction of EDGE's 10 out of 10 review for Bayonetta , where they say the game "slaps Dante, Kratos and every other hero back to the drawing board." …if it wasn't for such a bold statement, I'd never point you in their direction but whatever. Look for Ben's hands-on preview of the demo in question, which should show up soon.
