    PlayStation Store Highlights

    This week is jam-packed with games of all shapes and sizes, so you're bound to find something you like. If you're a Transformers fan you'll be happy to see that the latest retail offering, Fall of Cybertron, is available the day it launches - in other words, right now. If you're wavering on whether or not to get it, the fact that you can make your own Transformer might help you decide. Seriously.

    Let's just say for argument's sake that you hate robots (you monster), but love team-based shooters. You're in luck. Counter Strike: Global Offensive is the newest iteration of the classic franchise, so regardless if you're a retired pro or a beginner, now's a good time to get involved in the community.

    It's the last title in the PSN PLAY promotion, which also means that this is the last week to purchase games and earn PlayStation Store credit back. Read more about the event by clicking here.

    Counter Strike isn't the only classic to get revived this week - Metal Gear Solid 2 and 3 HD are now available for individual purchase. These games are available for download on both PS3 and the PS Vita stores.

    Now, if you've had trouble finding Seasons Passes for downloadable content in the past, you should no longer have that issue. The store has a new section just for Seasons Passes located under "Add-Ons," so now you can find them more easily than before.

    PlayStation Plus members are receiving exclusive access to the DUST 514 beta this week and can purchase downloadable content for the title at half price. There are discounts galore this week, including: Counter Strike: Global Offensive, a plethora of Natsume PSP titles, and an interesting bundle with Plants vs. Zombies and High Stakes Poker.

    There's a ton of stuff hitting the PS Store today, so make sure you sound off in the comments and tell us what you think. We'll see you next week!

    I picked up CS as well. 50% trophies after 2 hours of play without even trying for them. Pretty fun game, although I was disappointed that it doesn't let you play vs PC players (I though they said it would?). I'll probably end up buying it for Steam as well later on.

    Counterstrike was one of the first games that really got me into FPS mutliplayer games. But looks like I'll be getting it on my PC, a mouse and keyboard is always better for FPS games

    Is Harvest Moon a game about growing crops? They made that fun? I know the franchise is classic to some people, but I wonder if any of you have tried it.
