US PlayStation Store Update for August 2nd: Qore, LittleBigPlanet 2 Toy Story Level Kit, Galaga Legions DX

Written by: / / No Comments

This week’s US PlayStation Store update includes a smattering of interesting content across a number of genres. There’s a new episode of Qore to download for free if you’re an annual subscriber or PlayStation Plus member, and I highly recommend checking it out if you haven’t already. The show is in HD (720P) and usually covers about four topics per episode. These include Blu-ray reviews, travelogues, interviews with notable PlayStation developers and behind-the-scenes coverage of upcoming games.

Notable add-on content this week includes the Toy Story level kit for LittleBigPlanet 2. The pack contains five levels, two mini-games, the Alien Costume as well as plenty of new objects and stickers. I was a big fan of Toy Story on Mega Drive back in the day (1996 to be precise) so it’ll be interesting to see how these LBP2 levels compare.

The mention of Galaga Legions DX on this week’s list also conjures up memories of good times spent in front of my NES playing the original. If you’re a fan of space shooters you’ll definitely want to give it a go, and if you’re wondering whether the $9.99 price tag is justified why not download the demo to see if it’s worth it?

There’s a lot more new content on the PS Store than the proceeding paragraphs suggest, so be sure to look over the full list to see what else awaits you the next time you click on that enticing blue basket.
