After last week’s comparatively quiet schedule, this week’s US PlayStation Store update is a return to the form of the last few months, with oodles of new content available.
A number of full PlayStation 3 games have arrived. Far Cry 3 and the Mass Effect Trilogy are the only new triple A releases, but there’s also the Rockstar Games Collection Edition 1, which bundles Red Dead Redemption, Grand Theft Auto: Episodes from Liberty City, LA Noire and Midnight Club: Los Angeles. The original Mass Effect makes its PlayStation debut as a stand-alone release, too, and Shaun White Snowboarding is out along with something called Under Defeat HD: Deluxe Edition.
On the PSN games front, Guardians of Middle Earth brings MOBA to Lord of the Rings. Guilty Gear XX Accent Core Plus is a must for hardcore fighter fans. Page Chronica and Rotastic round out the downloadable offering.
The Vita gets two odd little releases, card battling effort Uncharted: Fight for Fortune and musical effort DJMax Technika Tune.
EA Sports has added a number of bundles; read about those here.
I’ve never heard of this week’s PS2 Classic, Chulip, but its description has the player going “around town kissing citizens and improving your reputation” which is okay by me. Six new obscure PSOne Imports are also available in the Classics section.
Plus subscribers gain access to BioShock 2 from the Instant Game Collection, along with a long list of new and continuing discounts.
Demos are available for LittleBigPlanet Karting, Guardians of Middle Earth, Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch and Rotastic.
DLC again makes up the bulk of the update. On Vita, there’s new content for LittleBigPlanet, PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, Sound Shapes, Street Fighter x Tekken and Uncharted: Fight for Fortune. This DLC is also available for the PS3 versions where applicable.
On PS3 specifically, you’ll find packs for Assassin’s Creed 3, Darksiders 2, Dead or Alive 5, Dragon’s Dogma, Magic the Gathering – Duels of the Planeswalkers 2013, Max Payne 3, Mugen Souls, Resident Evil 6, Rock Band 3, RockSmith, Tony Hawk Pro Skater HD and XCOM: Enemy Unknown.
