Posted by Sammy Barker

Tripping over content

Where to even start? This week’s North American PlayStation Store update is so outrageously enormous that we doubt that we’ll be able to do it justice in under 75 words. Highlights include a bunch of PS4 pre-orders, the re-release of Enslaved: Odyssey to the West (seriously, you should play it), and a little game called, er, Beer Pong. Plus, there's lots, lots more.

I pre-ordered Warframe to get that ultimate fan pack bonus. First time I've ever pre-ordered from PSN, I'm hoping everything goes smoothly when the game releases on Nov. 15.

Warframe is free, isn't it?
If it is, I'll try to pre-order from Web or my friends ps3

This week is Hotline Miami only for me

Now that I try it, HotlinemMiami is a dilema. I don't like the retro but this one is hard to stop if I play it

Yeah it's F2P, for that reason I would usually just wait and download it on launch day but there are some nice pre-order bonuses now that I didn't know how long would last. You get 20,000 credits, 50 platinum (helps gain access to new warframes and weapons) and a Braton Rifle skin.
