With great new PSN Games, the return of two PlayStation legends, great new PS3 Full Games and a stellar February kick-off for PlayStation Plus subscribers; there's a lot to love with today's update.

In addition, side-scrolling action comes in two flavors this week. For brutal combat action, you'll want to check out Shank 2. For classic four-player co-op beat em 'ups, download The Simpsons Arcade Game.
It's also a big week for PlayStation legends Jak and Daxter. Not one, not two, but three of their original adventures are hitting the PlayStation Store today! And the best part?

The Drop this week is nearly as big as Super Bowl XLVI, with a massive blow-out of PS3 Blu-rays, PSN digital releases and a PS2 classic.
Speaking of classics, the Jak and Daxter Collection arrives this week on Blu-ray as a full packaged HD triple-combo, or single jabs as individual purchases on PSN.
Also, it was a pleasure joining the stage with David Jaffe and members of Eat Sleep Play last Thursday at the Twisted Metal community event, where we raffled tons of prizes and booed each winner onto the stage. A big thank you to PlayStation fans that made it out and turned it into an amazing experience!
Hit the jump and bask in the glory of over ten PlayStation games on this week's The Drop.

This week, the Video Unlimited library adds Dream House, In Time, and The Thing. Plus, watch Tim and Eric's Billion Dollar Movie before it hits theatres.

Featured New Releases:
Lana Del Rey - Born to Die
Lana Del Rey has certainly made a splash before and after releasing the hit song "Video Games" in October. She has since intoxicated the music industry, which has watched her every move leading up to the release of Born to Die. A kick back to some of the bouncy story-telling of acts like Lily Allen, her sultry perception ping-pongs more between summer songs and haunting ballads. One thing is for sure - all eyes are on her for some time to come.

72w ago - EA Sports Producer Nate McDonald has announced today that fans can experience Wimbledon this February through Grand Slam Tennis 2 for PlayStation 3.
To quote: We are very excited to be bringing this franchise to you on the PlayStation 3 platform. Right now, I'm going to give you a quick rundown of what you can be looking forward to in our demo, which is currently available on the PlayStation Store.
One of our big innovations is our All-New Total Racquet Control, where you can control every shot with the right analog stick, smashing forehands, backhands, overheads, and volleys with precision, accuracy, and power.
You can utilize this control system to take your game to the next level, however, if you prefer the old school button controls, those are still available to play with as well.
Also new, and exclusive to PlayStation 3, is our PlayStation Move support. The motion control experience gets you on your feet and literally puts the racquet right in the palm of your hands. With a little bit of practice in the Practice Court prior to playing a match, you should have a good handle on all of the different control schemes in no time!
Once you have developed your shots in the Practice Court,...
72w ago - Team17 Community Manager Mark Baldwin has announced today that Worms Ultimate Mayhem will be obliterating PSN on February 14, 2012.
To quote: We are delighted to be able to announce the U.S. release date of Worms Ultimate Mayhem is Tuesday February 14, 2012. We'd also like to introduce the game to you all and answer any questions you may have.
Can you introduce the game to us please?
Sure, Worms Ultimate Mayhem is a "best of" compilation of content from both Worms 3D and Worms 4: Mayhem, so it's got 38 weapons, plenty of customization options (including a selection of new ones) making for 115 individual customization elements in total.
There are also 60 single-player missions taken from both sources, making it a massive game. We've taken the opportunity to improve on what was there already too. We have made some really nice improvements to the camera and made the game even more approachable; to this end we added a new utility (the Binoculars) to help you aim, and an automatic shot assist mechanic that helps your shots find their targets in easy mode. We have also added some really cool loyalty content too.
In terms of visual improvements, we've brought the game up to date with a raft of enhancements. New water effects, up-scaled textures and fonts, higher...
