PlayStation 3 Demos

Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Generations Demo
Developed by CyberConnect2, NARUTO SHIPPUDEN: Ultimate Ninja STORM Generations is the latest rendition in the smash hit ‘NARUTO SHIPPUDEN: Ultimate Ninja Storm’ series of games. The title will power the series into the future by ramping up the number of playable and support characters far beyond any NARUTO game in the wildly popular franchise.

As you can see from the top image showing Naruto in Nine-Tails Chakra Mode, I´m plenty excited about today´s new demo for Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Generations (and SSX as well). Sometimes the official PlayStation blog lists demo releases tentatively, so I hope this is the English demo for real.

SSX Demo
A modern day reinvention of one of the most critically acclaimed arcade franchises of all-time, EA SPORTS SSX will allow players to experience the franchise’s signature fun and adrenaline-packed gameplay across iconic mountain ranges all over the world.

Shank 2 Demo
The fan-favorite 2D brawler is back in action with Shank 2. Shank is forced on the offensive wielding his trusty arsenal of weapons and combo moves to protect those close to him. Shank 2 raises the bar from the original, creating an amazing comic book visual style and combat system which redefines the 2D side-scrolling brawler.

PlayStation 2 Classics

Full Spectrum Warrior
Full Spectrum Warrior is a squad-based real-time combat game allows players to experience the intensity and gritty realism of urban combat warfare. The game is based on a real-time squad-based strategy game commissioned by the U.S. Army to train light Infantry troops in urban combat situations. Soldiers are placed in a tense, hostile, and claustrophobic environment where they must complete a variety of military objectives. Players act as the Squad Leader, providing direction to Alpha and Bravo fire teams. The successful Squad Leader effectively uses cover in the environment and moves his fire teams in a coordinated fashion so they can protect themselves from possible attacks that could come from any direction. Full Spectrum Warrior puts you in the dirt with your men, where danger lurks around every corner.

In Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II, Starkiller is once again the pawn of Darth Vader — but instead of training his protégée as a ruthless assassin, the dark lord is attempting to clone his former apprentice in an attempt to create the Ultimate Sith warrior. The chase is on — Starkiller is in pursuit of Juno and Darth Vader is hunting for Starkiller.
