US PS Store Update, June 5 – 12 free games for PS Plus subs, VF 5 Final Showdown, more

Wednesday, 6th June 2012 02:32 GMT By Brenna Hillier

For those of you able to actually play games this week as opposed to just constantly posting screenshots of them, here’s what the PlayStation Network has to offer.

The main meat of the update is for Plus subscribers – 12 new free games, with the promise of new games every month. Now we’re talking. Just Cause 2 is the best, just FYI.

Other than that there’s a reasonable amount of DLC but the best core release is Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown. The definitive version of Sega’s fighter is going to EVO this year as a fringe event so practice now.

There’s also a huge pile of E3 trailers but why you’d watch them on your PS3 later when you could watch the right here, right now is beyond me.

    @1 The European selection isn’t half bad, and worth well more than the price of your subscription anyway.
