Hey PlayStation community, January was a great month for PlayStation Mobile. We not only had a decent showing at CES, but we also launched some really cool games over the last few weeks. On January 22nd, we kicked off a promotion with Sony Mobile to celebrate the launch of the Xperia Z1S smartphone and finished up our Festive Giveaway promotion. Going forward, we will be changing our weekly posts to a monthly format in order to highlight the best content, features and promotions for your consumption. Enjoy!
Featured Games for January
Check out some of our featured games for the month of January:
Gunhouse by Necrosoft Games ($3.29)
Gunhouse is a game about making tiny blocks become bigger blocks so that you can make those bigger blocks become guns and special attacks, so you can attack horrible enemy bad dudes that want to steal your dang orphans. It has things like: turn based combat, kinda! A bunch of guns to upgrade! Old-timey weirdo writing! Three different kinds of skeleton!

way. This game also features an in-game store allowing you to trade in your jewels for an
