NA PlayStation Store Refresh: 2 October, 2012

Submitted by on Wednesday, 3 October 2012No Comment

The North American PlayStation Store has officially been refreshed.

Every week, we share what new games are newly available for PS3, Vita, and sometimes PSP. Full PS3 disc-based games often turn into digital downloads, new PSN titles from respected long running franchises as well as indie gems, and minis for days.

Vita owners rejoice: the river of legacy content is flowing once again! I was afraid that we may have been forgotten after last week’s store update. Today, North America is receiving a hefty dose of Square and Capcom games for PS One Classics on Vita, including Pocket Fighters which was previously exclusive to PS3 and not playable on PSP.

Day 1 Digital offers up pre-order discounts to PS Plus subscribers. Score future releases like Need For Speed: Most Wanted or DOOM 3 BFG Edition at a 10% discount. And if you’re in the mood to crush some spines in a little pigskin, start downloading NFL Blitz for free right now. Get Spelunker HD at half off and all its DLC for $1.

Its time to get pumped for Assassin’s Creed III, as the PS Store is now accepting pre-orders with three (I see what you did there) variants to choose from: PS3 standard, PS3 Gold Edition (includes DLC Season Pass), and PS3 Gold Edition (includes DLC Season Pass) + Vita Liberation. Buy that last one and you more than just earned yourself a $20 credit from Sony’s “spend $100, get $20″ deal for the month of October. Lastly, there’s now Sonic – Resident – Harry – Basketball – into Dreams for your hard drive consumption.
