Wednesday, 17th October 2012 00:38 GMT By Brenna Hillier

This week’s update to the North American PlayStation Store brings a number of new games, loads of high-profile DLC, and some tasty spooky savings.

The PlayStation 3 scores four new full games, and although Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy have their place I’m pretty sure 007 Legends and DOOM 3 BFG Edition will prove more popular this week. Two PSN games debut as well – Of Orcs and Men and the Arkedo Series.

The Vita is now home to a PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale beta, as well as Silent Hill: Book of Memores and Dokuro. There’s one new Minis (Breakquest: Extra Evolution) one PS2 Classic (The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe) and one new PSOne Classic (Front Missions 3), too. The House of the Dead Overkill is now a bit thriftier thanks to a bundle.

Plus members receive PayDay: The Heist in their Insteant Game Collection, access to the PlayStation 3 beta for Battle Royale, early access to The Unfinished Swan, and a pile of discounts.

On the sale side, the Guitar and DJ Hero titles are having a minor DLC discount spree, while a huge Halowe’en sale offers discounts on a range of horror themed titles.

Now to DLC: a pile of new releases for New Little King’s Story join Pure Chess and Zen Pinball 2 on Vita. For PS3, there’s new content for Darksiders 2, Borderlands 2, Dead or Alive 5, Mass Effect 3, Mugen Souls, Sleeping Dogs and Lights Camera Party. Plus, the Medal of Honor: Warfighter online pass is now available, and DUST 514 currency is up for grabs.

In the musical sphere, Rock Band 3 has a couple of new tracks while Rocksmith has a huge pile and a number of paid unlocks for the impatient, too.

    My copy of Doom 3 is on its way to me now. I remember it fondly from my ancient PC gaming days, even though it got panned, because it was just the most beautiful game I’d ever seen, and was oozing atmosphere. My girlfriend at that time ran out of the room screaming when she saw those fuckers that crawl up the walls…

    …but it crashed a lot and wouldn’t work for me reliably. It was the last nail in my PC gaming coffin. Looking forward to settling some unfinished business.
