112w ago - PlayStation Store Director Grace Chen is here with this weeks US PSN updates below, as follows:

Happy E3! Obviously there's a LOT going on throughout the show and we're sure you're busy reading all the great coverage, but we haven't forgotten about bringing you the latest PlayStation Store releases.

We'll have an update today, as well as additional content arriving on Wednesday and Thursday.

New release Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown is here and brings the definitive version of the popular Virtua Fighter 5 series, developed by AM2.

With two new playable characters, over hauled fighting mechanics and dynamic and interactive fighting arenas this edition also unleashes console-only features such as a robust Training Mode, eight-player Online Room Match Mode and a match record feature to replay, save, and upload fights. Oh and by the way, it's free for the entire month of June, up until July 3rd in PlayStation Plus!

While we're on the subject of Plus, you'll see that with today's update is the all new PlayStation Plus instant game collection, now available with today's update.

As mentioned, Virtua Fighter 5 is included, as well as 6 PS3 Full Game greats such as inFAMOUS 2, LittleBigPlanet 2, Saints Row 2, Just Cause 2 and Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine.

We're also bringing great PSN Games like Lara Croft: Guardian of Light, Sideway New York, and Hard Corp: Uprising, all free in Plus! Check out the full details below and look forward to more PlayStation Plus news in the future.

You'll also want to check out some new E3 trailers including the recently unveiled BEYOND: Two Souls E3 trailer and the new LittleBigPlanet Karting trailer!

We've also got great new E3 pages so you can follow all the gaming excitement from some of the most exciting games from the show including God of War: Ascension, Dust 514, and Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time!

You may want to jump on some great deals hitting some of the earlier Sly games. They're on sale now, so it's a great time to experience the originals in preparation for Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time arriving later this year.

Additional gaming is also landing with Bang Bang Racing and PS3 Full Game Madagascar 3! In Bang Bang Racing, drive high-speed, pumped-up racing cars through cones and exploding barrels! Be one step ahead of your competitors, finding shortcuts, repairing your car in the pitlane, and dominating your opponents from the top-down view.
