117w ago - PlayStation Store Director Grace Chen is here with this weeks US PSN updates below, as follows:

Hi Everyone - It's a banner week for the PlayStation Store with the debut of great new titles, an out of this world PlayStation Plus update, the return of some treasured classics and much more.

Make your first stop this week with Awesomenauts. PlayStation Plus subscribers know from last week's May preview that this title is free this month starting today!

This colorfully action packed 2D online multiplayer battler with split-screen gameplay drops you in frantic online environments.

Unlock loads of new abilities and characters for your arsenal, get in on the co-op action and storm the online arenas in Awesomenauts! Read up more on the game in PlayStation.Blog's post with tons of info and screens from the game.





Then power up your PS Vita and download Mortal Kombat.

Featuring the same over the top combat and fidelity from the console release, this version brings all-new PS Vita exclusive content (kontent?) like 150 new Challenge Tower missions that incorporate the DLC characters (like Freddy Krueger!), while also integrating the front touchscreen and accelerometer in ways that enhance the complete Mortal Kombat experience. Read more from the blog's coverage on the PS Vita edition of Mortal Kombat.





This week also offers a healthy dose of the classics. In the PS2 Classics category, two great games are available to download in their original glory: Max Payne and Rayman 2 Revolution. Rockstar's Max Payne follows a gritty noir tale infused with action packed gameplay.

Check it out as a great way to get prepared for the imminent release of PS3 game Max Payne 3 on 5/15. Rayman 2 Revolution delivers an adventure taking gamers to a dream-like world in which they must prevent invasion from robot pirates. It's fun for the whole family!

Old-school RPG fans won't want to miss Legend of Dragoon arriving to the PS one Classics section as well. Featuring a classic JRPG story, riveting combat and a unique art style; relive this adventure or experience it for the first time starting today.

PlayStation Plus subscribers, this month's content kicks off with a bang with the already mentioned free Awesomenauts, but also Trine 2 and two banner PS one classics with Castlevania: Symphony of the Night and Castlevania Chronicles.

You can also now access the hotly anticipated PixelJunk 4am beta. Download the online viewer beta before anyone else and get in on this never before seen (or heard) experience. Don't forget, PixelJunk 4am releases PSN-wide on 5/15.

Three of those PS+ offers I had already bought. I hate that.

One thing that does annoy me is that they sometimes reduce PSN games one month and then offer them free to PS+ members the month after. I have been caught out like that. I'm not going to buy any more PSN stuff for that reason and hopefully it might be available on PS+.

The Awesomenauts trailer has the funniest music for a game trailer imo. I was expecting it to be a space-shooter but the game still looks awesome.
