US PlayStation Store Update for January 17th: Uncharted 3 DLC, Starhawk Beta, Kingdoms Of Amalur: Reckoning demo

Written by: / / No Comments

PS Store Update 17/01/12

This week’s PlayStation Store update has a number of highlights to satisfy a diverse range of PSN users.

PS Plus subscribers can enjoy early access to the Starhawk Beta as well as 50% off twelve recent PSN titles such as Rochard and Payday: The Heist.

ICO and Shadow of the Colossus are now available as separate purchases under the ‘PS3 Full Games’ section of the Store. Each game will cost you $19.99, and unfortunately PS Plus members don’t receive any discounts or full game trials for these two classic titles.

Fans of Uncharted 3’s multiplayer modes will no doubt want to take a look at Flashback Map Pack #1 ($9.99). The latest DLC for Uncharted 3 includes four classic maps: “Sanctuary”, “Fort”, “Cave”, and “Lost City”. I’ve never heard of “Cave”, but the other three maps are variations of those found in Uncharted 2’s multiplayer component.

Finally, you can now download a demo for one of 2012’s most anticipated RPGs – Kingdoms Of Amalur: Reckoning. The download is a hefty one at 2.53GB but should be well worth it if previews for the game are anything to go by.

Here’s the full list of updates for this week:
