PlayStation Network Releases: September 20th, Firmware Update 3.72, Resident Evil 4

Resident Evil 4 and lots more (including a wimpy firmware update) in this week’s releases for the PlayStation Network, September 20, 2011.

PlayStation Plus Sept 20 2011

About a month after the last firmware update, which integrated automatic download, trophy sync, and cloud save uploads to the PlayStation 3 ecosystem, comes fancy new update 3.72. But hold on to your cyber-horses — this firmware revision adds nothing and is just a measly system calibration by Sony. So yeah… nothing else to see here…

Now back to our regularly scheduled PlayStation Network Releases!

This week we welcome, as part of this survival-horror action series’ 15th anniversary celebration, a special title that is consider a true videogame masterpiece that helped change the 3rd-person shooter landscape. Directed by Shinji Mikami, considered a gaming luminary in his own right — it’s one of 2005’s best games of the year, Resident Evil 4.

Available as a downloadable via the PlayStation Store for $19.99US, the Resident Evil Revival Selection version of Resident Evil 4 includes updated high-def graphics, the bonus content such as the Separate Ways scenario, and trophy support. Beyond that though, nothing else has been altered in-game — preserving this Capcom classic in all its glory. Can I get a, yo diggity! Yo diggity!

For PlayStation Plus subscribers it seems this week will be the best opportunity to get your Umbrella Corporation defeating funk on, with all three previous Resident Evil outings, Resident Evil Director’s Cut, Resident Evil 2, and Resident Evil 3: Nemesis for free! That’s a deal no one should pass up, and neither should you. Now where’s that Resident Evil 6… nothing about it was reported from Tokyo Game Show 2011, just more news about the PlayStation Vita. I guess that’s better then nothing, I suppose.
