PlayStation Store PS3 and PSN Updates for February 21, 2012


Sponsored Links
139w ago - PlayStation Store Director Grace Chen is here with this weeks US PS3, PS Vita and PSN updates today as follows:

With the official launch of PS Vita at hand, we're augmenting last week's PS Store launch on PS Vita with another stellar update as well as some new PS3 Full Games, world class demos and one pre-order opportunity you won't want to miss.

To start, one of the biggest games of the year is coming straight to PSN, the same day it's available at retail. Mass Effect 3 will be available to download on March 6th and to celebrate, we've partnered with EA to bring you a special pre-order on the PlayStation Store.

Pre-order on the PlayStation Store now and get the M-55 Argus Assault Rifle and the Mass Effect 3 - Take Earth Back Theme.

PS Vita games are also easy to look to as the star of the show this week. Games like TALES FROM SPACE: MUTANT BLOBS ATTACK, Touch My Katamari and Plants Vs Zombies pepper the PlayStation Store with some great gaming experiences. There's even a new PS minis triple pack from Grip Games with 3 of their best hits, playable on PS Vita.

But don't miss out on the other Vita-only experiences like the AR (Augmented Reality) games Cliff Diving, Table Soccer and Fireworks. You'll also be excited to see the first wave of apps for Vita hit with Live Tweet, Flickr and Netflix arriving with today's update.

Starting today, you'll be able to find all the above PS Vita experiences easily viewable from the PlayStation Store on your PS Vita and PlayStation 3. There is now a special PS Vita Games category on the PS3 PlayStation Store as well.

You'll want to watch the PS3 Full Games category for great new additions with Mafia II and Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II. But if you're looking for something more bite-sized to download, get your hands on EA's SSX via the demo. It's your first hands-on with the definitive version of the game as the PS3 version will have the entire Mt. Fuji mountain as an in-game exclusive.

PlayStation Plus subscribers get a chance to snag 6 great Sega Genesis classics this week. Newer subscribers may not have had a chance to get these gems when they were available last year. Now, they're all available free this week in PlayStation Plus. Subscribers also get access to great discounts like 50% off Hamilton's Great Adventure.

There's much more to uncover with today's update so make sure you check out all the details below. Let us know your thoughts in the comments below or join the discussion on the PlayStation Community forums in the Official PlayStation Store Update thread.

SvR for $10, not bad but the game isn't much different from previous SvR games so I would just buy an older wrestling game since not much has changed from SvR 08 to SvR 10.
