Rag Doll Kung Fu: Fists of Plastic received a critical drubbing when it first debuted for $9.99 on the PlayStation Network in April. Happening upon perhaps the best way for gamers to forgive the game its faults, Sony said as part of its PlayStation Network update that it would be partnering with Sprint to give the game away. Sony did not specify when the offer would expire, saying only that it would be available on the house "this week."
Sony is also offering a deal on Capcom's Bionic Commando Rearmed. With the all-new Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 edition hitting retail next week, Sony is offering a 50 percent discount on the 8-bit redux, selling it through the PSN for $4.99 until this Thursday.
Other full games available this week are poker variant Texas Cheat'em and Zen Pinball, both of which can be purchased for $9.99. Gamers can also pick up original PlayStation classics The King of Fighter '99 and Spyro: Year of the Dragon for play on the PS3 as well as the PSP. The two games run $5.99 apiece.
It's another big week of add-on game content, as well. The first of eight MotorStorm Pacific Rift liveries is now available for free, as is the Daxter character for Pain. Those looking for premium Pain content can pick up the Sore Spots pack for $5.99, which adds two new environments to the destruction-heavy downloadable game. Dynasty Warriors: Gundam 2 also has free content available in the form of three new missions.
On the rhythm game front, Guitar Hero World Tour picks up a three-pack of pop songs. "Everything's Magic" by Angels & Airwaves, "So What" by Pink, and "Stop and Stare" by OneRepublic can all be downloaded for $1.99 individually or $5.49 for the set. The Rock Band Music Store gains eight new playable tracks this week from artists Disturbed, Elvis Costello, Steely Dan, and Social Distortion. Each track carries the standard sticker price of $1.99.
On the PSP, gamers can pick up Pursuit Force: Extreme Justice for $22.99. The Bigbig Studios-developed action game was originally released to positive reviews in January 2008.
