PlayStation Store Update

It’s another great week for PSN games as the third week of PlayStation Network PLAY starts today with the release of BloodRayne: Betrayal! Developer WayForward takes the franchise in a bold new tough as nails 2D direction, and a beautiful art style that shines in HD. If you haven’t pre-ordered yours already, give the demo a spin. And as part of the PLAY event, if you purchase before 9/20, you’ll receive an exclusive BloodRayne: Betrayal Dynamic Theme, as well as an exclusive PlayStation Home shirt!


NFL fans have reasons to rejoice as well with DIRECTV NFL Sunday Ticket now available on PlayStation Network!

In PlayStation Plus updates, as we announced yesterday, it’s another great month for Plus subscribers as September’s free game is Popcap’s Plants vs. Zombies! In addition, Astro Tripper, the SEGA Genesis classic Altered Beast, and PS one Classic Jet Moto are hitting Plus today, free to download for the entire month!

Lastly, this month’s Qore episode is now available. It’s free and early, exclusive to PlayStation Plus subscribers, but will be available for all to download in 2 weeks. In this month’s episode, Veronica Belmont gets busy with co-op in Ratchet and Clank: All 4 One, interviews Amy Hennig the creative director behind Uncharted 3, and previews two remastered classics with the Ico/Shadow of the Colossus collection.

  • I can’t even find the NFL SUNDAY TICKET app on the ps3 let alone buy it. I am very skeptical of this. My Netflix is also giving me trouble today…could that be weather related? My Wi-Fi on my iPad works fine so I don’t think it is that.

  • Nice update, but just wondering why the North American store doesn’t get the same PSP sales/price drops that the European markets gets. I know PSP can play Minis & PS One games, but could PS Plus get some offers on PSP games as well?

    Speaking of PS Plus, Can’t wait for Resident Evil 4 HD. I was on the fence before due to owning the game on Gamecube & Wii, but the price drop is making my triple dip more worth it. But any word on PS Move support yet?

  • Red Dead is up a week early! sweet!

  • I liked this update a lot.

  • I think you forgot to update Megaman 4 that was announced at the drop on sunday, it’s not on the blog post (at least I don’t see it).

  • Hey Ro or Morgan,

    Can either of you guys put in a request for the Original Twisted Metal on PS1, and can we get some discounts on add-ons for Folklore and LittleBigPlanet 1? I’d really like to play the original Twisted Metal before the new one comes out and the discounted add-ons would be nice since most of those games are kinda old.

    Hope you guys hear me out

  • Grace, Blazblue: Calamity Trigger Portable Digital, Gladiator Begins and Guilty Gear XX Accent Core Plus are PSP games not PS3.

  • No Disgaea 4 DLC?

    Also why are PSP games marked as (PS3), do they play on PS3 now?

  • Pre-ordered Bloodrayne, but where are the RE’s, I thought some were coming today?
    Awesome PS+ Update <3

    • The Resident Evil titles in Plus are mostly hitting on 9/20; with the exception of RE Code Veronica, which is 9/27.

  • Rockstar said Red Dead DLC will be out next week.
    I think you made an error ;)

  • When is the black ops map pack is coming out i need to know?

  • I Hate this update.

  • Finally got my hands on Bloodrayne. Great deals for PS+ by the way ^^

  • Resistance 3 online pass is usable by one account only? Or can someone use it from many accounts on his PS3? Can you clarify this?

  • NFL Sunday Ticket. OMFG thank you Sony!

  • Holy free stuff.


  • Best update in a good while

  • Will we be getting any Mortal Kombat avatars? :(

  • Mega Man 4 really was my favorite… probably because I only owned that one and borrowed all the rest…

  • Need PSone classics Die Hard Trilogy, Return Fire, MDK, Soul Blade, Tenchu. Thanks.

  • Not impressed at all to be honest. Lack of real PlayStation portable content? Check. One PlayStation title (and make that an import which is japanese only.) No, real choice in avatars (again?) Roger. I mean who honestly was asking for Rocket Knight avatars? The choice in DLC is pathetic too, and overpriced (again as well.) Where are the MLB avatars so, many have been waiting on anyway? Which also brings up that bastardized PlayStation pass program. Not sure which is more pathetic though; Sony’s pass, or the cattle protecting Sony and whom fallow Sony like a whipped dog and enable such poor behavior.

    Really just not impressed. I guess the “only” real reedeming peice to this entire update is the “coupon book”. It really is the only impressive thing to this update (and that is saying something.)

  • on top of Space Marine, Resistance 3, Dead Island, and trying out the official PS3 headset, now i have Plants vs Zombies and Altered Beast? Damn, i know where all my free time will go

  • Okay, am I the only person not seeing the Resident Evil stuff? It’s not on the list above, and I just checked the store and saw nothing. I thought plus members were supposed to get the original three free and 50% off on RE4 and CV? The games are still listed at full price for everyone.
    Does that start at a later date or something? The stuff I read earlier said it started today and was going for 2 weeks. These were the only things of interest for me this week, as a plus member. Now, there is absolutely nothing worth my time in this update (except the new Qore). :(

  • Awesome!

  • glad I got my copy of Resistance new, saved $10, is the Red Dead DLC an error, thought it came out next week

  • To hell with the greedy, dirty and a middle finger to us, the gamers, their consumers, online pass.

  • @Darquedragon the resident evil games will be free starting september 20th

  • will God of War: Origins Collection be available via PSN?

  • I just bought the pig avatar. It looks cool :D

  • I will download the GOW demo ASAP

  • Any idea why the Red Dead DLC is not working?

  • Hope we some some Disgaea 4 avatars/DLC soon in the weeks to come. Otherwise, great update.

  • great update can finally download BloodRayne which I pre ordered ,Red Dead DLC and Plants vs Zombies :P

  • How do you access the Sunday Ticket stuff? I can’t find it anywhere.

  • when is the BF3 BETA RELEASE DATE any 1 know

  • Awesome =0

  • @83 when you download it off the store it will be under Media (TV/Video) Services on the XMB

  • Resistance 3 Online Pass.
    Banish it and all Online Passes to the moon! We have no need for any online pass in Video Gaming.
    If Developers are so worried on losing money from rentals or used game sales, then they shouldn’t be money greedy in the first place (Like EA or Ubisoft), or should drop being game developers in the first place.

  • Any plains to release Legend of the Dragoon in the PS1 Classics section? It shouldn’t be too hard to release. You were the ones that published the game Sony.

  • not a great update but…I do like free stuff :p

  • @tapantaola
    you put it on one account and any account on the same system will be permitted online

  • I’m glad that someone in the Sony Hierarchy listened to me. Today is a good day now that I have MM4 is on my PSP. Don’t mean to sound greedy or anything but You could make a lot more money if you continue the trend (Wink…) Alas, BloodRayne doesn’t look shabby either. Sony, you never cease to amaze me w/ your ability to give the public what they ask for. I look forward to doing more business in the future when RE4 hits the store. Until then continue to tantalize me with your wares PSN (EVIL GRIN….)

  • Any news on the LittleBigPlanet 2 Move Pack release date?

  • Am I the only one wondering where Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath and the free Portal 2 DLC both of which are supposed to be out by the end of summer?

  • What is this talk about RDR DLC being released early, then it doesn’t work? its due out on the 13th Rockstar said. also, can somebody please tell me whyyyyyyy the Assassins Creed multiplayer beta isn’t free to the poor users yet? last week was Plus exclusive, and now this week too? this ain’t fair!

  • ok great update but…. what the heck happened to the new RDR free pack, i downloaded it, and began to to play RDR then to my surprise i got NOTHING!!! no myths or mavericks, then i looked again in the ps store and the content has been removed! what is going on?? i thought i was supposed to come out on the 13th so im really confused…. :/

  • @43 It’s an absolute joke!
    Every week there are a handful of comments regarding the unreleased MLB avatars and every week the comments either go unnoticed, unanswered or just plain ignored. I’m beginning to think Sony will never release the avatars!


  • You *do* realize you have Guilty Gear for PSP listed at both $9.99 and $19.99 in the store, right?

  • Grabbed all my PS+ swag. Thanks!

    Excited for Renegade Ops next week!

  • @Mbice I know man it realty sucks. I’ve been waiting on them to put the rest of the MLB avatars on the store for a couple of months now. I really don’t understand why they weren’t all put on the store at the same time. All I can do is ask for them every week. Lol
