Alien Breed: Impact, Deadliest Warrior: The Game hit PSN

PlayStation Store Update: Storefront this week adds Team 17’s arcade shooter, virtual version of the Spike TV fighting game, latest Ben 10 adventure; Modern Warfare 2 map packs 50% off.

Additions to the PlayStation Store this week are an eclectic bunch. Gamers looking to sink their teeth into titles with head-to-head fighting, shooting, and cartoon aliens all have options this week.

Leading the charge this week is Team 17’s arcade shooter Alien Breed: Impact ($14.99). The futuristic top-down isometric shooter casts players as a Conrad, a weapon-wielding alien punisher. Impact tasks players with traversing environments, laying waste to alien enemies, and solving puzzles. For those who don’t want to go it alone, Alien Breed: Impact supports two-play co-op both locally and over the PlayStation Network.

Aliens hate fire. This cannot be debated.

Also available today in the PlayStation 3 storefront is Deadliest Warrior: The Game ($10) from Spike Games. The title, which is based off the Spike TV program of the same name, lets players suit up as famous historical fighting classes (ninjas, knights, samurai), and battle it out. Players looking for a deeper level of immersion can customize their characters and take the fight online over the PlayStation Network.

Another alien-themed title hitting Sony’s virtual marketplace this week is Ben 10 Ultimate Alien: Cosmic Destruction ($29.99). The title thrusts players into the cartoon boots of alien transformer Ben, trekking though several international destinations vanquishing evil in the process.

For legacy gamers, Sony this week added two PS One Japanese import titles to the virtual marketplace. Ready to download today is Arcade Hits: Outlaws of the Lost Dynasty ($5.99) and Magical Drop F ($5.99). It’s worth noting that both titles are direct Japanese imports. Their menu screens have been translated into English, but beyond that, players will need to be proficient in Japanese to read onscreen text.

Sony added five new minis titles to its download hub this week. They include Fort Commander: King’s Gambit ($4.49), Urbanix ($4.99), Apache: Overkill ($2.99), Actual Crimes: Jack the Ripper ($3.99), and Shapo ($4.99).

For the music gamer, Sony updated its download space this week with new tunes for Rock Band and Def Jam Rapstar. Rock Band welcomes tunes from R.E.M. and T. Rex, and Def Jam Rapstar adds new tunes from Diddy, DJ Khaled, Eric B. & Rakim, Flo Ride, Maino, and the Sugarhill Gang.

Also of note, Infinity Ward’s two map packs for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 this week have been discounted 50 percent. The Stimulus Package and Resurgence Map pack are now $7.49 each.

A full list of the week's deals and new PlayStation Store content, including themes, wallpapers, demos, discounts, and add-on content, is available on the PlayStation Blog.

monson21502 Posted Oct 6, 2010 9:46 pm ET i downloed the demos earller today. but dont feel like installing them this is why i like 360 better.. its the better game system, ps3 is the better blu ray player ______________________________________________________________ Hey Monson21502, I'm guessing you don't know that the PS3 has an auto download/installer feature right? It notifies you that the game has been installed when you bootup. I logged on 2 days ago and Alien breed was there waiting to be played. Yo should set this to on and won't have to worry about updates for Demos and games you own.

I tried the Alien Breed demo on XBL, it was so close to actually being good but just falls short on a number of issues for me, small things that could have been easily remedied before final release.

Anyone who buys these map packs obviously are too impatient for Black Ops.

put it this way for the MW2 packs- why buy them when you could just get the Battlefield 2 ultimate edition or UC 2 GOTY edition and get it all free? its not $15 anymore but it's still not worth it.

I think it's kinda cool that they are releasing PSX games straight from Japan on PSN even if they are in Japanese, It's just an interesting thing to do.......
