Naruto is so good looking that I'm almost tempted to spend 2.99 to play the demo. :lol
Please don't.
I bought Qore the first time but it's shitty so don't support this Sony tactic thanks! :D

I'm considering to buy this month's Qore because I'm interested in SH Homecoming. I guess they're gonna show never before seen footage, right?

Keep a lookout for PSN cards. My local shady gas station carries the $20 ones, here in WI. Usually if it reaches here its pretty widespread.

Just a quick update for the OP.

In the "Only on foreign stores section" you have HSG demo but that was up in NA last week.

Anyone know if the Naruto demo will allow for 2 player versus?

Although I wish there weren't timed releases on demos like this, I like that I can pick and choose individual months at $2.99 versus commiting to a whole year. Even if you do end up getting all twelve individually it's still only $11 more than a year subscription would cost.

Also the fact Sony only gets one chance a month to dangle a demo or beta in front of people willing to pay is nice (versus the whole XB Live Gold thing where it's ever-present). That said, I'm excited enough for that Naruto demo to try out an issue of Qore after work today.

Probably the worst UK update yet.

Great banner tho :lol
Really, the worst? At least you got a full game, a PSP demo, and DLC for good games.

Haven't been there weeks where EU got nothing but trailers?
