‘Heads-Up’ Game Store Update 12th September 2012

Battlefield 3, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, Max Payne 3 – quite a lot of guns for the PS3 on PS Store this week. There’s not only guns, there’s also sporting action in the form of NHL 13 and a demo for FIFA 13, too.

However, this week’s batch of PS Vita titles are rather more placid. There’s Ecolibrium, a brand new discovery app where the aim is to create a balanced ecosystem of various plants and fantastical animals, and SunFlowers, a new title that lets you grow flowers to share with your friends.

PS Plus members – you lovely people get Scott Pilgrim vs The World: The Game added today and a 30% discount on Max Payne 3 (including R* Pass).

Jet Set Radiiioooooooooooooo! *queue ‘Humming the Baseline’ tune*

PS Plus types also get a one week jump on the super-fine, super-cool, super-awesome Jet Set Radio! Released on Dreamcast way back in the day, the time has come to relive this great game. Stylish visuals, funky tunes and fun gameplay – Jet Set Radio is not to be missed. Even better, you get a reduced price on top of access before anyone else.
