Many of the downloadable titles are also available at retail as well such as UNCHARTED: Golden Abyss. However, there are exclusive titles that are only on PSN including Super Stardust Delta, Escape Plan and Hustle Kings.

Escape Plan delivers a new style of "survival humor" gameplay that takes full advantage of the unique features of the PS Vita. Super Stardust Delta brings the famous twin-stick shooting that made for a gripping experience on PS3 and brings a new edition to PS Vita with all-new gameplay tweaks.

Lastly Hustle Kings lets you make your way to the top of the global leader boards in this beautifully chic pool setting. Access the PlayStation Store on your PS3 or PS Vita to download the new PS Vita content.

114w ago - Twisted Metal Producer Chad Cox is back with a second video today from the Twisted Metal University series dubbed Lesson 2: Vehicle Tactics for PS3.

To quote: Today's lesson focuses on risk vs. reward in the high-stakes world of vehicular combat. Experienced Twisted Metal players have long known that the highest-damage attacks require quite a bit of risk, and this 2012 revival is no exception.

Whether you're swooping in close to deliver a point-blank Shotgun blast or charging up the devastating Swarmer missile, Twisted Metal's sprawling arsenal requires a firm, steady hand.

Watch today's new video to learn how to best manage high-risk special attacks such as Roadkill's devastating Blood Missile Barrage and Reaper's Flamesaw - two of the most lethal weapons in the game.

Then use this knowledge to give you a headstart on multiplayer combat this February 14th when Twisted Metal finally lands on PS3!





Finally, below is some video footage for fans who wish to honor Twisted Metal's return by blowing up Sweet Tooth's truck- Enjoy!
