US PS Store Update, March 6 – Journey for PS Plus subs, GCA winner discounts, more

Wednesday, 7th March 2012 05:30 GMT By Brenna Hillier

It’s a pretty good week to be a PlayStation Plus member, but this week’s US PlayStation Store update brings goodies for everyone.

One of this year’s most anticipated indies, thatgamecompany’s Journey, arrives for Plus members – the rest of you have to wait another week, I’m sorry to say. Plus members also get exclusive access to a Mass Effect 3 trial although everyone seems to have bought it already regardless.

Several new games release for Vita owners this week – Unit 13 looks pretty sweet, and Motorstorm RC is free for a limited time only.

The Gamer’s Choice Awards are in and the winners are all discounted; Plus members again benefit with an added price reduction.

There’s quite a lot of DLC out today – you’ll note an increasing trend towards “pay to win” shortcuts for single-player games. Maybe we are buying too many games if we don’t have time to play them, hmm? This is my life, all the time.
