Aussie emulation mash-up Nov. 4

Calling all cars, there's a robbery in progress over on the PlayStation Network Store.

Payday: The Heist busted on the PlayStation Network Store overnight, bringing alongside it a free trial demo. This is a first-person shooter geared toward online multiplayer that has players performing six different heists. However, if you want to stick to the offline side of this multiplayer-focused game, it also packs the options for bots. Regularly Payday: The Heist would set you back A$26.95, but if you bought all four games in the PSN Play program, you'll get this one for free.

Also joining Payday: The Heist on the PSN this week is Move-shooter Hydrophobia, a couple of PlayStation 3 games, and GaiaSeed.

Over in the land of Xbox Live Arcade this week, it's a tad quiet. The only game to land on Microsoft's digital distribution service is BurgerTime: World Tour, a platforming game that has players making their way up a tower while collecting burger ingredients.

Last, but not least, it's time to have a quick squiz at what Nintendo's got on offer. DSiWare gets a blast of rhythm mixing with a Beaterator-like game called Rytmik Retrobits, while the 3DS Virtual Console gets 1991's Adventure Island. In case you don't remember, Adventure Island is a side-scrolling platformer from Hudson Soft. Probably the most interesting thing about this game's story is how the protagonist enlists the help of dinosaurs to help him rescue his girlfriend.
