PSNStores Weekly Roundup: November 12th – November 18th 2012

Posted by on November 18th, 2012 | 0 Comments | Tags:

Some great news came out this week that is sure to excite Vita owners, the long awaited PS+ for Vita will be available next week and its starting off with quite an offering. Some of my personal favorite games currently on the system, including Gravity Rush, Uncharted: Golden Abyss, WipEout 2048, and the fantastic Mutant Blobs Attack will be added to the instant game collection for Vita. Better yet if you are already a PS+ member (which you should be by the way) you get access to PS+ on the Vita at no additional cost. Along with PS+, Vita firmware update 2.0 will be releasing that adds a new mail app, the ability to transfer wirelessly with a PC, and much needed improvements to the web browser.

Even though Halloween is over for another year doesn’t mean the scares stop as Superflat games announced that they will be bringing  their 2D survival horror game Lone Survivor to the PS3/Vita. While no release date has been announced yet the PS3/Vita version is being handled by Curve Studios so you know it will be in good hands. Check out the trailer included in the post to see what the game is all about.  In other survival news Telltale Games will be releasing the final episode of their Walking Dead series in Tuesday’s update. While I may be a little behind with these, I have shamefully only played episode one so far, what I have played was excellent and definitely something fans of the comics and TV show should be checking out.

It seems two a week is looking to be the regular for PSM releases as this week brought the updated version of Team 17’s original 1991 Amiga hit Alien Breed and Panic! the top down turn puzzler about an alien invasion where you need to play with the Vita sideways. Take a look at this weeks PSM Quick Play to see if these two are games you should be throwing your money at. If you are wondering whats in store for PSM in the future you should also check out some info on three upcoming titles: Radiant Flux, Cobalt Runner, and The Horde.

So ends another edition of the PSNStores Weekly Roundup as we finish off with a look at this past weeks Global Store update and a Sneak Peek at the November 20th North American store update.
