PlayStation Store Update for 7/3/12
The PlayStation Store has updated for the week, and brought with it lots of great content. Among the highlights are SEGA’s Sonic Generations, which is sporting a reasonably attractive $29.99 price tag; if you need further convincing of what the game has to offer, you can read my review of the game I wrote for RipTen last year here.
Fans of the oldschool who are PlayStation Plus subscribers will also find that the “Instant Game Collection Additions” includes Pac-Man Championship Edition DX, the most exciting update of the classic arcade game to date. It is also joined by the timely addition of Gotham City Imposters, which manages to combine Batman doppelgangers with that which the Dark Knight hates most: guns. It may not be the best way to hype yourself up for The Dark Knight Rises, but it’s something.
Several other games have also been discounted as a part of Sony’s Summer Sale for PlayStation Plus members, including NBA JAM: On Fire Edition for $7.34, The House of the Dead III for $3.42, and Shadow of the Colossus for $9.79.
There is too much to get into detail here, but you can find the full list below.
