Hello everybody and welcome once again to the PlayStation Store Special Offers Update. A couple of weeks ago we launched the PSP Power Sale, bringing you some great PSP games at discounted prices.
Well now its time for the second part of the PSP Power Sale, but what does that mean? New games!! That's what.
Now there is one game on this list I have to give a special shout out too and that is the eagerly awaited Persona 3 Portable. We have been waiting for this game release for quite a bit in the EU and because of that, the publishers have agreed to a 2 week discount for this game on the day of release. So don't miss out and get your copy now to take advantage of this discount.
We also have some other great games available and some of you will notice that games you requested last week on the blog are now in the sale. So don't be scared to make a request and get involved.

89w ago - WayForward Technologies Designer and Director Sean Velasco has shared all the bloody details today on BloodRayne: Betrayal for PSN in a new video below!
To quote: We've been working ridiculously hard on BloodRayne: Betrayal for quite some time now and I can't tell you how stoked I am to tell you that it's launching next week, on September 6th, as part of the annual PSN PLAY promotion.
For those of you who might not know, WayForward has been working on a full-on 2D re-imagining of the iconic BloodRayne franchise. BloodRayne: Betrayal is all about deep and varied combat, tough-as-nails platforming, smooth and fluid animations, and of course, buckets and buckets of blood!
We've previously been fortunate enough to work with the game's publisher, Majesco, on A Boy and His Blob. It was a great experience, so when they approached us with the opportunity to reboot BloodRayne, we jumped at it! With the power of the PS3 behind us, we have crafted our first HD side-scrolling game, and it looks frickin' amazing!
We've combined a rich fluid dynamic system that allows for superbly splattery blood, unique screen-distorting refraction effects for all of Rayne's slicing and dicing, tons of layers of background...
89w ago - Today Reverge Labs Designer, Producer and Community Manager Peter Bartholow has introduced Skullgirls - the next Generation of PSN fighters.
To quote: A few weeks ago, you may have noticed that Street Fighter IV's venerable producer Yoshinori Ono said he was looking forward to a new game called "Skullgirls."
A lot of you probably hadn't even heard of the game before, so I'm here to remedy that.
Skullgirls is more than just a PSN fighting game, it's the realization of two peoples' long-held dreams... seriously! Creative director Alex "o_8" Ahad has been working on the characters and story since he was in high school, and project lead Mike "Mike Z" Zaimont had been working on a fighting game engine in his free time since 2008.
When mutual friends introduced them to each other, Skullgirls was born. Joining the recently founded Reverge Labs team in 2010, they signed with publisher Autumn games, and at E3 Konami announced that it will be distributing Skullgirls.
Skullgirls takes place in the Canopy Kingdom, a country reminiscent of a 1940's post-war America tinged with magic and intrigue. Hanging over the kingdom is the legend of the Skull Heart: this ancient artifact is said to be able to...
89w ago - Today 345 Games Creative Director Carlos Giffoni has announced that Ugly Americans: Apocalypsegeddon is now live on PlayStation Network with details below.
To quote: Our new game, Ugly Americans: Apocalypsegeddon, is live now on PSN and well worth checking out. It's got everything you could possibly want: co-op, zombies, demons, tons of weapons, RPG elements, hilariously rude and crude humor, and enough action to keep you going longer than a cockroach could survive a true apocalypse!
For those of you that haven't been following our development, Ugly Americans: Apocalypsegeddon is a four-player, co-op, dual-analog arcade shooter (think Robotron on crack... with plenty of raving zombies and delinquent man-birds, of course).
What's really fantastic about the game is that we've been lucky enough to work extremely closely with the über-talented staff over at the Ugly Americans.
All of the voice actors from the show lent their talents to their characters, the writers created a completely new story for the game, and Devin Clark (animator and series creator) came up with all the character design including some insanely twisted end-level bosses.
As a result it really feels like you are playing...
