108w ago - PlayStation Store Director Grace Chen is here with this weeks US PSN updates today, as follows:
Coming to the PlayStation Store this week is a new category called PS3 Full Games for games that were previously disc only but are now available to download on PSN.
Not only will this make it easier for you to find those larger previously disc-only experiences, but you'll also find DLC, add-ons, demos, and any other content associated with games in this category all housed in the same area once you click on the respective game.
Games that are developed and exclusively available via download are now in the newly created PSN Games category.
Kicking off the new PS3 Full Game category is the release of Red Dead Redemption and the Undead Nightmare Collection. You can either download these 2 standalone titles separately, or save some money and pick up the bundle including both Red Dead Redemption (Full Game) and its zombified expansion Undead Nightmare Collection (Add-on). All Red Dead Redemption content is 30% off, or snag a 50% discount if you're a PlayStation Plus subscriber.

108w ago - Sanzaru Games President Glen Egan has officially introduced Ninja Master Rioichi Cooper from Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time today.
To quote: We have hunkered down to concentrate on making Sly Cooper: Thieves in Times the best game of 2012!
Over the summer, I spent a lot of time showing our progress on the game and talking about how we are making sure we stay true to the core of the Sly Cooper series - but now I want to start talking about the NEW things we are bringing to Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time.
When we played the old Sly Cooper games on the PS2, we loved the stories about the Cooper clan ancestors and their various thieving abilities. Something that is really exciting and fun for Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time is that you can not only travel back in time to meet these ancestors but you will also have the ability to play as the Cooper Clan ancestors!
As you proceed through the game each episode you encounter features a new time period with a new playable ancestor. Each new member of the Cooper clan has their own unique and powerful abilities that opens up a whole new range of game play in the huge environments.
This is one of the coolest aspects of Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time - meeting these characters, learning more about them, and then getting to experience...
108w ago - MonkeyPaw Games Marketing Manager Ray Almeda has announced today that BurgerTime World Tour will be serving up retro evolution on PSN tomorrow.
To quote: It's been 29 years since BurgerTime hit arcades, but there's still there's a legion of fans waiting for a modern revival of one of the tastiest puzzle games ever.
BurgerTime World Tour isn't just BurgerTime with HD graphics; it's a maturation of the arcade classic with evolved elements and platform features that make for a whole new game. BurgerTime World Tour has been re-built from the ground up on a rotating cylindrical 3D world upon which you build your burgers from top to bottom.
Follow famed burger chef Peter Pepper as he traverses four different culinary countries (New York, Paris, Mexico, and Tokyo) and creates giant burgers while dodging zany condiments and frenetic foods like Frank Furter, the splenetic sausage or Sonny, the indelible edible egg.
Peter Pepper will have his way with these ingredients as he drops burger pieces onto them to include them in the burger (bonus points and custom burgers!), flips them off the screen with a tornado spatula attack, or engulfs them with flames...
108w ago - MonkeyPaw Games Marketing Manager Ray Almeda has announced today that a rare PSOne Classic, namely Vanguard Bandits, will be storming PlayStation Network tomorrow.
To quote: When talk turns to classic strategy RPGs, most players immediately think of Tactics Ogre, Fire Emblem or Final Fantasy Tactics. These games could hold one's interest for hours upon hours.
Battles would be so intense and challenging that players needed to constantly find ways - no matter how small - to eke out an advantage that could be the difference between sweet victory or shameful defeat. Tomorrow, MonkeyPaw Games will revive the now-rare Vanguard Bandits on PSN and with it, resurrect the glory days of classic strategy RPGs.
Originally published as Epica Stella by Human Entertainment in Japan, Vanguard Bandits was released by legendary publisher Working Designs in North America. The PSone game was loaded with content: 60 different missions, three branching storylines, crazy plot twists and dialogue on the Ruin Branch, five endings and path-crossing narratives. Vanguard Bandits kept gamers glued to their screens for marathon gameplay sessions.
The game is played from an isometric camera view similar to most games within the SRPG genre. But the 3D battle animations...
