Final Fantasy VIII arises on PSN
PlayStation Store Update: Square Enix's classic JRPG joins Puzzlegeddon on PS3 store, while PSP gets MGS: Portable Ops, Buzz! Quiz World, more.
Square Enix hasn't given gamers much of a heads-up about Final Fantasy VIII's arrival on the PlayStation Network. With initial word buried in a PlayStation newsletter earlier this week, the Japanese role-playing game is now available for both the PlayStation 3 and PSP as a PSone Classic for $9.99.
Elsewhere on the PlayStation Store for the PS3, Pieces Interactive has released Puzzlegeddon for $9.99. A matching puzzle game, Puzzlegeddon offers single- and multiplayer action, as gamers move tiles to form chains of like colors to deal damage to their opponents.
The PSP's downloadable library also sees a significant infusion of new content this week. With Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker now carrying a May 25 release date, Konami has added Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops and the multiplayer-centric Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops Plus to the PSP's online store for $14.99 and $9.99, respectively. MGS-enthused gamers can also pick up the Metal Gear Solid Digital Graphic Novel for $9.99 this week.
A trifecta of racing games heads to the PSP this week, as Sega Rally Revo ($15.99), F1 2009 ($39.99), and Ridge Racer ($14.99) are all now available. Lastly, Buzz! Quiz World, which lets gamers connect to the PS Store to download new quizzes and other content, is available for $19.99.
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.
