PSNStores Weekly Roundup – August 13th – 19th 2012

Posted by on August 19th, 2012 | 0 Comments | Tags:

It has been a busy week here on PSNStores.com. A lot of news came out of gamescom with the announcement of new games for the Vita, PlayStation Mobile, and PSN.  We also got news that PS+ will be coming to Vita in September with an increase to cloud storage for all your precious saved games and we finally got a time frame when the next Vita system software update will be coming; among a few other upgrades you will be able to play those fancy PS1 classics on the go when the patch is released later this month.

You can also check out the new trailers for the much anticipated Unfinished Swan and PSNStores (unofficial) game of the year Tokyo Jungle.

Five new reviews this week for you including the long awaited Retro/Grade and Papo & Yo which may be the most emotionally engaging game you play this year.

We finish off with the Global Store Update, a sneak peek for next week’s NA store update, and the first weekly installment of Sound Shapes Sample Tracks which profiles community made Sound Shapes levels chosen by the editors of PSNStores. Check out all of this and more below:
