Amid all the Game Developers Conference announcements, the PlayStation Store update happened right on time -- a little earlier than usual, in fact. Pixeljunk Shooter 2 ($9.99) led the pack, along with a full game download for ModNation Racers ($29.99). PS1-era Square fans can rejoice with the arrival of Vagrant Story ($6.99).

The "Severed" add-on for Dead Space 2 is available ($6.99), along with the Shadow Battle add-on (free) for Marvel vs Capcom 3 and the game's first costume pack ($4.99). Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit also adds several Lamborghini packs ($2.99-$6.99).

Major League Baseball 2K11 and Top Spin 4 received the demo treatment, and a single-player demo for Call of Duty: Black Ops was added. Each is also available on the Xbox Live Marketplace.

Finally, Plus subscribers got an early demo for PlayStation Move Heroes, a full game trial for ModNation Racers, and Sonic the Hedgehog early and free, as promised.

      Is there any good info on what the Shadow Battle add-on actually is?

        I don't know how it works, but I thought they said it was basically a mode that adds AI-controlled teams built to play like top tier MvC2 players.

        ...is more complicated than I remember. But man, the style and presentation was years ahead of its time! Still is, in some ways.

          That combat system kicked my ass. I could never get the hang of it, so I gave up on it :(

      I bought Shooter 2. Much harder than the original but I hate that Hungry Suit. The controls don't flow well but I do realize they are going for a Dig Dug style of game.

        Harder than the original? Bought!

        I LOVED the first one but it was SOO easy there was no challenge which was a shame.

          yeah I agree, I loved the first but it was quite easy just poking through the levels. This one I'm dying a lot more in the levels and actually Game Over'd once.

      Glad I'll be getting Sonic for free, but at the same time, who on earth is going to buy it for full price?! It's been released so many damn times. Anyone who wants it should just pick up the Genesis Collection.
