PSN Update: 10-25-07

With the Playstation Eye out this week, Sony’s giving us some extra software to go along with it. We’ve got Trials of Topoq, Aqua Vita, and Operation Creature Feature up on the PSN…oh wait, no we don’t. Despite being promised the titles (and, apparently, Europeans getting it), the only “downloadable game” we get this week is the EyeCreate editing software, which I’m surprised Sony had the gall to call a “game” in the first place. Hell, at least it’s free (and only 9 megs, so it shouldn’t take up much space on the old hard drive) and we’ve gt Eye of Judgment to justify the purchase.

Other than that, we’ve got some mostly superfluous DLC for Piyotama and Ninja Gaiden Sigma (and some old Spider-Man DLC has been discounted, as well). At the very least, Sony has tossed in PSOne classic Spyro, partially addressing the complaints I’ve had for the past few months. It’s not enough, though, unless they keep it up and also start offering some of the games most people didn’t get to play. After all, that’s the appeal for me – getting my hands on all the rare stuff that I couldn’t the first time around. Can we try for Bust-A-Groove next week, Sony? Pretty please?

If it wasn’t already evident, I think this week’s update is kind of a bust, but if you want to check out the offerings in detail (and what I didn’t mention here), follow the jump.
