24w ago - Sony's Jawad Ashraf of the PlayStation Store Team is here with this weeks European PS Store updates which include Hotline Miami and Borderlands 2 DLC out today.
To quote: Leading the way this week is extraordinary old-school shoot 'em up, Hotline Miami, releasing for both PS3 and PS Vita. It's a high-octane action game overflowing with raw brutality, hard-boiled gunplay and skull crushing close combat.
Set in an alternative 1989 Miami, you will assume the role of a mysterious antihero on a murderous rampage against the shady underworld at the behest of voices on your answering machine.
Fans of the 'Merc with a Mouth' should look forward to Deadpool on Friday for PS3. Featuring the titular character himself with various other Marvel drop-ins and fourth-wall breaking humour our man in red is known for, Deadpool is your go-to fix this month for comic book gaming.

PS3 Full Game
There are a few important things I need to say before you crack into my insanely sweet game. (Oof. Here we go again.) I'm a mercenary with an accelerated healing factor. I've been described as unstable, which is just plain coo-coo. (Wait, do sane people say coo-coo?) I'm gonna battle for the safety of humans and mutants. (And even mumans.) Be prepared for just about anything. (Holla!)

On PS3 comes Deadpool, the new action game starring "the merc with a mouth." PS3 and PS Vita owners get to revel in the gruesome delights of Hotline Miami, featuring Cross Buy and Cross Save, while PS Vita owners get the definitive edition of a classic with Muramasa Rebirth. Enjoy this week's The Drop!
Deadpool (PS3) - "Some of you may know me as the Merc with a Mouth (or the mercenary for hire), what can I say? I have skills! (You know who else has skills?) High Moon Studios has skills, and I hired them to make my game, because they're awesome, and so am I. But they're not as awesome as I am, if that's what you've heard."
Ride to Hell: Retribution (Blu-ray, PSN) - Ride to Hell: Retribution is a no holds barred brawler set in the tumultuous age of the 1960's.
A lone rider, Jake Conway, is locked in a battle to the death against a ruthless gang of bikers called The Devil's Hand. Jake will employ any means necessary to enact his vengeance: weaponizing his environment, using hand-to-hand combat on foot, and battling it out in high-speed shootouts on Jake's custom hog.
24w ago - FuturLab Managing Director James Marsden announced today that Velocity Ultra blasts off on PS Vita this July 2nd with details below.
To quote: What can I say? Other than sorry for the delay! We've been somewhat harassed by you folks for a month on Twitter, Email and Facebook, and frankly we deserved it! But now Velocity Ultra for PS Vita is nearly upon us, bug-free and with a high-res coat of paint.
Velocity Ultra has earned some whopping review scores. Still not convinced? Let's look at some of the improvements in this new, definitive version of the game.
Velocity Ultra features online leaderboards and Trophies (including a Platinum!), native res artwork, and flawless 60FPS action. I
t's a piece of perfectly formed interactive art that we're extremely proud to have installed on our PS Vitas. Velocity Ultra also features the same kick-ass soundtrack by Joris de Man (and myself, yay!), which you can now buy separately from all major digital music storefronts!
So what are you waiting for? A sequel? We'll see what we can do, but in the meantime, this is the definitive Velocity experience, and we're sure you'll agree that it rocks!
