PlayStation Store Update

Hi Everyone –
There’s much to talk about in this week’s PlayStation Store update, including new PS3 Full Game downloads, an amazing new PS Vita title that takes advantage of the system’s AR (Augmented Reality) capabilities, brand-new PSN games and the return of some fan-favorite PlayStation classics.

We’re happy to join the Sorcery celebration this week with the title being available to download on the PlayStation Store. In this PS3 exclusive, take control of a young sorcerer’s apprentice and master the arcane arts to fight back the foul creatures that inhabit this magical realm. Sorcery puts the power in the players’ hands with PlayStation Move by allowing you to conjure and command powerful magic as you brave the dark world of the Faerie Kingdoms.

In other PS3 Full Game news, fighting game aficionados will be happy to see Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition available on the PlayStation Store.

If you never picked it up on disc, you can now download a copy from the PlayStation Store.

PS Vita gamers will want to check out Table Top Tanks: an all-new explosive Augmented Reality game. Using the device’s rear camera, this game builds the battlefield based on where you’re pointing your Vita (preferably on a table top).

  • why was ghost recon listen under the PS plus preview if it wasnt coming out

    • I’m afraid this title did not come in as planned. I think from here on out, since the PS3 Full Games can be tough to get a secure date, I will omit the incoming Full Game Trials on the PS Plus post and just foucs on the locked in Plus content. The post does state that content may change, but I know that’s not a big make-good.

  • i mean listed

  • so what happened to ghost recon future soldier coming to the store ?? you guys said it was coming in the PSplus post

  • Sweet! Thanks for the update! Great job PSN folks.

  • True have no idea why guys said it was comming out on tuesday for digital download and now its not here casue now i just wasted 60 bucks when i could have not gotten a hard copy of the game. I think sony needs to refund my money. Can u please explain

  • Anyone on the blog team can you please answer me to why I can NEVER post comments on these blogs from my main psn plus account slick _ t ? I have to always space my account name apart on here or the comment never will post on here. Why is that?

  • If I put slick _ t together instead of spaced apart the comment never will post on here. Its weird but anyways why am I blocked from posting comments on here off my main account? My plus account? Makes no sense but I can post just fine off any other account that is just standard accounts. I’d love to just be able to comment off my main account on here. Anyways great update guys!

  • Holy baby Jesus. This update was early.

  • The update for Ps Plus members it’s kinda cool there are a few gems that i’ll checkout.I hope this year at some point for Ps Plus members Joe Danger makes it’s way to us for free!!!!!!!!!

  • I thought Dr. Who was also on the vita?
    Also, do the classic sega games come with trophies?

  • Avatars!!!

  • I am so gettign Flow and Flower.
    thatgamecompany rules everything.

  • Though we were getting the Last of Us cutscene on PSN today and would be great if the Kara video made its way to PSN also.

  • Thought*

  • Nice update and early again. Please keep it like this Grace.

  • I don’t see the Modnation Racers DLC sale prices listed that were announced yesterday.

  • any word on Rayman Origins for PS3 on PSN?

  • Hmmm… another boring update for me =\ Are there gonna be any future rpgs for the ps2 classics? I would love to have a tales game like tales of the abyss on it :P I’d buy that in a heart beat. *HINT* [; but i guess tales of graces will have to do.

  • All the SEGA games come with trophies.

    Playing Monster World IV now, just as fun as it always was. M2 does great work, much better then the trash backbone was putting out.

    Thanks for the early’ish update for a change.

  • I am looking forward to downloading Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition. Please release other ps1 and ps2 SF games.

  • Holy smokes, super early. Good job!

  • dancinglights800

    MNR ssaaaaaaaaale

  • Need For Speed Porsche Unleashed please.

  • Who here would have like a telltale Doctor Who game instead of a sidescroller. Might still get it if it get good reviews though. But $20 is an awful lot of cash for a sidescroller imo.

  • Earliest update ever???

  • I thought dr who was also coming out for the psvita… I was all excited about it showing up today -_- ….

    Nothing for the vita today… I’m tired of this…

  • Pixel Junk Monster Deluxe is now compatible with the Ps Vita, including dozens of psp games!
    Why wasn’t this great news announced on the blog alongside the store update?

  • Do we get the Ridge Racer Unbounded demo in the US today?

    btw, if you play a ps+ full game trial and get some of the trophies, do you have to buy the digital copy to unlock those trophies or can you buy the disc version instead? Just curious. :)
    Same with the save files, do those work across both digital and bluray versions of the same game?

  • Great update this week. I’m definitely getting Flow, and I haven’t decided what else! I love these early updates, let’s make a habit of this, please?

  • We still need “The Warriors” PS2 classic. More like PS2 masterpiece! I’m still dreaming I guess.

  • Glad to see PixelJunk Monsters working on the Vita now. But why is Valkyria Chronicles 2 still not on the PSN store for the Vita yet? It was on the list for the first batch of psp games that will work on the Vita day one. I Know you can transfer the game from a PS3, but not everyone has a PS3.

  • I just bought a damn $50 PSN card only for those Ubisoft Sale stuff and then you guys remove it because of this super unnecessary early update. Thank you very much!

  • And yet another paltry PSN week for Vita owners. Why do I own this thing again? Doesn’t SONY want my money?

  • I’ll buy Alex Kidd tomorrow …. it woul’d be nice to play this game in the PSP too

  • @10 + jeffsmither Dr Who Vita is out in 3 weeks.

    Great and early update!

  • Oh thank god! I’ve missed the last few times Flower went on sale.

  • @1, hrm, do you mean the + exclusive beta for it awhile back? I’m not sure…

    @7, you can log in but cannot post? I would contact Sony ASAP.

    @10, I read somewhere that it’s slightly delayed.

    @13, the Kara video is on Youtube. Download the .mp4 file & transfer it into your PS3.

  • @37 no on the PS Plus preview it said ghost recon was coming out to download today not the beta

  • Thanks for changing the log-in so I can post from the PS3 browser again.
    And thanks for the free Dragon Age theme!!! Nice.

    For $15 I’m all over D&D Daggerdale. I need a good…..and cheap…… isometric ARPG to get me over the depression of Blizzard no releasing Diablo 3 on PS3……yet……..
    Does anyone have Daggerdale on disc? I’m curios if it’s a random loot game like Sacred 2 Fallen Angel, Champions of Norrath or Diablo, or is it a static loot game liike Dragon Age? Also, if it is a random loot game, is there online? and can you trade items and all that good stuff?

    I’ll also for sure be buying Shinobi. If anyone from Sega’s listening, please release Shinobi 3 on PSN ASAP.

  • @27, that’s why you’re here rich! :D Downloading AR Tanks & Pixel Monsters Asap!

  • Wow are you kdden me Darth? We can now comment on the blogs off our ps3 browsers now? Now that along is a update of the year in my book lol. Cheers from my end Sony! About time!

  • Holy cow, another super early update, and with a ton of content. I think I’ll finally buy Flow and Flower, since they’re both on sale. I’ll have to check out some vids of the Monster World games, but I’ve been reading around that those are really fun. And I was just wondering a while ago if everyone had forgotten about D&D: Daggerdale. Nice to see it finally released, and with a demo. I’ll definitely check that out before I drop $15 on it.

    To everyone complaining about Future Soldier, if you actually go back and look at the post you’re thinking about, or try searching for it, you’ll find it was never announced that the game was going to be a Day One DD on the store. The May PS+ Preview said there would be a Full Game Trial for PS+. That’s it.

  • Monster World IV and Table Top Tanks for me, thanks.
    Good update this week.

  • no sega free game,,,??? no free game???


  • Sugestions for PS2 Classics: Fahrenheit and Fatal Frame

  • Actually, PixelJunk Monsters Deluxe is still not available for transfer from my PS3, here in North America. Wouldn’t it require a system update, either on the Vita or PS3? I do see that it’s downloadable via the Vita PSN, though, so thanks a lot Sony for finally getting around to this week-late release. A little notification would have been welcome.

    Further, there needs to be more transparency about what PSP games are being made available for the Vita. There are a lot already, but there are plenty of AAA titles missing. The Vita really needs a filter for newly available PSP games, or simply to have the title included in the New Releases list.

    I want to give you my money, Sony. Why are you making it so difficult?

  • Thanks for another great update! Looking forward to Pure Chess next week. =)

  • Grace – Next week, like in years past, will you guys be publishing PS Store updates every day throughout E3?

    @akibake: Try re-downloading the game on your PS3. The file on the server might have been changed since you last did so.

    • We’re looking into doing special Store Updates to reflect new content hitting from E3, but nothing has been finalized yet. More to come on this

  • Still waiting for PSOne Classic “Legend of the Dragoon” :( Hell of a game.

  • picked up both Sorcery and Ghost Recon Future Soldier today. Sorcery is amazing with ps move, i cannot belive how responsive it really is! worth the wait! and i didnt play GRFS yet, but the 3D enticed me to get it! so im hoping its epic. will check out Dungeons & Dragons later..that should of been on vita..
