New Sony PS3 and PSN Releases for the Week of July 9, 2012
Sony Senior Social Media Specialist Rey Gutierrez is here with the new PS3 and PSN releases for the upcoming week today, as follows:
With NCAA Football 13 for PS3 and as a full digital download on PSN this week, experience the pride and pageantry of gameday Saturday like never before.
Go from high school superstar, to top college player, to head coach in Road to Glory and Dynasty modes. With a new passing system, new team-specific traditions, and the Heisman Challenge, make an impact by leading your team to the National Championship.
PSN exclusive Rainbow Moon is a Strategy RPG from the makers of the hit Soldner-X franchise. Cursed by his long-time enemy, Baldren founds himself warped to Rainbow Moon. Baldren isn't only stranded in an unknown place - he has also opened a dimensional gate, out of which troops of monsters are crawling, turning this once peaceful planet into a real hell.
Also on PSN, Quantum Conundrum arrives and Mickey Mania: The Timeless Adventures of Mickey Mouse is a PSone classic, both ready for download on this week's The Drop.
NCAA Football 13 (Also on PSN) - With a new passing system that changes the way quarterbacks and receivers play and respond, combined with a new read and react defensive AI system, NCAA Football 13 delivers greater realism on the virtual gridiron.
Rainbow Moon - The residents of Rainbow Moon who have found themselves in this sudden and unpleasant situation react suspiciously and even nastily, which certainly doesn't make things any easier for our brave hero.
There's only one thing for Baldren to do: he has to seal the gate and warp himself back to his home planet. This is easier said than done, since the gate can only be sealed by a dimensional gate staff and no such object is available anywhere on Rainbow Moon.
However Baldren knows that he can create one if he finds the right materials. He needs seven magical artifacts, said to be hidden deep inside Rainbow Moon's dungeons.
Quantum Conundrum - In the first-person puzzle platformer Quantum Conundrum , players must use the unusual ability to shift dimensions to navigate the twisting corridors of Quadwrangle Manor.
Players take on the role of a young kid dropped off on his uncle's doorstep for the weekend; his uncle just so happens to be the brilliant, eccentric inventor, Professor Fitz Quadwrangle. Upon entering the Professor's vast manor home retrofitted with crazy technology to test his latest hypotheses, players quickly realize their uncle has gone missing.
Fortunately, players soon gain access to Professor Quadwrangle's latest invention, the Inter-Dimensional Shift Device, which, at the press of a button, will shift the world around them to an entirely new dimension.
In order to find him, players must use the newly found IDS Device to dynamically change the world to and from a variety of different dimensions to progress through the complicated Quadwrangle Manor.
Game of Thrones - Created in partnership with author George R. R. Martin, this role-playing adventure is inspired by the author's award-winning, international bestselling A Song of Ice and Fire fantasy series (better known under its first book's title, A Game of Thrones.)
Frogger: Hyper Arcade Edition - Frogger's coin-op thrills are back and better than ever in Frogger: Hyper Arcade Edition! The arcade excitement of Frogger returns in time for its 30th anniversary celebrations with updates that are sure to delight fans old and new.
Get Up and Dance - Get Up And Dance is the ultimate dancing game for everyone to play, whether you are the star performer or prefer to stay out of the limelight as a backing dancer, Get Up And Dance is for you.
Featuring everything from classic funky disco tracks to current chart hits, all complete with their official videos, there's something for everyone to enjoy!

I've never tried an EA NFL game, I've played Backbreaker a bit yesterday and the game was actually very fun at times. But I still prefer AFL (Australian Football) video games since it's much more fast paced and I actually know the players and teams.
