The PSP Go may not have a UMD drive, but gamers certainly haven't been left wanting for selection. In the weeks following the device's October 1 launch, Sony has stocked the PlayStation Network's PlayStation Store with downloadable versions of the PSP's library, and that continued this week with 11 more games added to the collection.

There are so many, but can we take them all??

This week's PSP offerings are split evenly between the Everyone 10 and Older crowd and the T for Teen audience. Square Enix's highly regarded Dissidia Final Fantasy leads the offerings for slightly older audiences and carries a $39.99 price tag. Crimson Room: Reverse ($7.99), Class of Heroes ($39.99), Star Wars Battlefront: Elite Squadron PSP ($29.99), and Star Wars Clone Wars: Republic Heroes ($29.99) have also been added to the PSN.

Younger gamers can pick up downloadable versions of Ben 10 Alien Force ($19.99), Ben 10: Protector of Earth ($14.99), Ghostbusters The Video Game PSP ($29.99), Dungeon Maker: Hunting Ground ($14.99), Creature Defense ($7.99), and Numblast PSP ($4.99).

The PlayStation 3 isn't without its own downloadable fare this week. Military Madness: Nectaris is a turn-based military strategy game that features online competitive and cooperative modes. It is available for $9.99. Also a new PSP addition, Numblast is a number-heavy puzzle game that runs for $4.99. PSP and PS3 gamers can also pick up Crystal Dynamics' PSOne Classic Gex for $5.99.

A full list of the week's new PlayStation Store content, including themes, wallpapers, demos, and add-on content, is available on the official PlayStation Blog.

Speaking of adding games made by Square...might we get tossed some Xenogears, Chrono Cross or Vagrant Story?

@ MazehcS0ul No it's not. I have only played and beaten 7, 8, and 12, but that is enough for me to want to play all of them. All of them are totally different dramatic experiences. They are a hallmark of the industry and are a guaranteed high quality product every time. SquareEnix should be applauded for their creativity and dedication to making their fans happy and content. Dissidia was pure fan service, and when your series has that many games, nothing feels better than a treat like that. Keep up the Great work SE. I look forward to more brilliant story teeling from XIII and VsXIII.

@ MazehcS0ul "Way to much" Dude... It's "too" much. And you're obviously not even playing Final Fantasy.

Was getting annoyed with just the Dissidia demo but now I'm happy. Sony didn't leave us hanging with the new go :)

@ihsanqueen No, you can only play Dissidia on the PSP. You can buy it directly on the PSP, or purchase on the PS3/PC and transfer the PSP.

@MazehcS0ul Seeing as how every different Final Fantasy game has a different story...Why would it stop? Just because you want to? Yea right.

Way to much games, like the FF series should stop. Way to much games and it is getting boring. Games don't last forever.

Well, there is almost no markup on games, so cutting out the middle man doesn't affect the price much, except maybe for shipping costs. The fact that they no longer have to manufacture the UMDs and packaging, however, should make at least a bit of a difference.

What I still don't understand is why these games cost the same as in retail stores. They cut the middle man (the stores), so they should be able to sell it for less and get the same profits.
