PSN Store stuffed for Thanksgiving

PlayStation Store Update: Tekken 6, Little Big Planet hit PSP; Madden Arcade, Diner Dash, and Gravity Crash debut on PS3; PSone classics and PSP Minis each get six new games.

150 Comments

The stores may be closed Thanksgiving Day, but Sony gamers don't need to let that stop them complementing their food comas with new game seizures. Sony released its weekly PlayStation Network update early to mark the holiday week, making a wealth of new downloadable games available to PlayStation 3 and PSP owners.

Who has two thumbs and a painfully generic name? This guy!
Who has two thumbs and a painfully generic name? This guy!

Starting with the PSP, Sony has added a pair of the system's biggest holiday releases to the downloadable storefront. The handheld port of Namco Bandai's Tekken 6 is now available with the full roster of 40 playable characters and bosses from the console edition, but without that version's Scenario Campaign mode.

Tekken 6 arrives alongside another PSP version of a popular brand, Media Molecule's Little Big Planet. The game lost its online multiplayer mode on the way to the PSP, but the developer did manage to keep the level creation and sharing features of the original. Both Tekken 6 and Little Big Planet sell for $39.99.

For cheaper thrills on the PSP, Sony has added six new titles to the PSP Minis lineup. The lineup is highlighted by Pinball Fantasies, a $6.99 port of the well-remembered Amiga collection of four pinball tables. Filling out the new selection of Minis are GameLoft's Let's Golf ($6.99), the Qix-inspired Fortix ($4.99), Halfbrick's gravitational arcade puzzler Blast Off ($2.99), the Lemmings-like Kahoots ($4.49), and the balloon-popping puzzler Bloons ($3.99).

Over on the PS3, the big new release is EA's Madden NFL Arcade ($14.99). The five-on-five gridiron game emphasizes heavy hits and big plays over realism, with power-ups, no penalties or field goals, and a shortened 60-yard field that players must traverse in a single set of four downs. Also new to the PS3 this week are casual sensation Diner Dash ($9.99) and the arcade shooter Gravity Crash ($9.99).

Gamers nostalgic for something a little older may be interested in the new additions to Sony's PSone Classics collection. Sony added six new games to the assortment of older titles playable on the PS3, as well as the PSP, including the genesis of Capcom's other survival horror series, Dino Crisis, EA's console port of Command & Conquer, Eidos' brawler Fighting Force, and the self-explanatory Reel Fishing, Backstreet Billiards, and International Track & Field. All of the new additions to the PSone Classics catalog are $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.

I'd say PSN is fully caught up(at least) to XBL as far as features and content. I hope they just don't charge for multiplayer. I'm just not paying two separate subscriptions(One for the PS3, and the other for the 360.)

@LozzyRoxx If I remember correctly, it was on GS that I read that Sony might create a PS2 emulator for the PS3 and put it up via PlayStation store. If they do that, they'll most likely put up all the PS2 games that have been released. Just like what they're doing now with the PSP library :D I'm not sure though, I'm just hopefull :P

Dino Crisis is a classic, I didn't waste anytime buying it. But they are four games, that I've been requesting for ever now. Suikoden II, Saga Frontier (2 would also be nice :D), Xenogears, and Broken Sword. If it happens? I'm officially chain too Sony.

@MizFitAwesome Text barley takes up bandwidth. I love how you think it's a waste of time, yet you still took the time to not only read, but comment letting us all know how usueless it was. I hope you feel cool now. Also, where did they say it was the best thing ever? I couldn't read that anywhere.........Gamespot ALWAYS posts this kind of stuff and for the people who own a psp or ps3 it's nice to know. If you have a problem with it, go start your own gaming site, but I thought the whole point of these places was to post anything that was new so we, the gamer, would be informed. They did just that. Cut some slack!

@MizFitAwesome I believe that the reason they did this in a story was because they couldn't do it in TOTS. I don't know, but that is how I usually find the updates, beforehand.

It isn't listed here, but Metal Gear Solid has been put onto the European PSN as a PS1 classic, at the mildly stupid price of £7.99. Just a heads up for everyone who, like me, has been waiting for it since it was released in June for North America's PSN. :)

@San_09 lol I think we've had Winnie the Pooh as the only game there for the last 3 weeks! This is why I buy all my games from the US PSN. The UK store is truly pathetic. Can't wait to pick up Dino Crisis!

NFL arcade isn't worth $15. The fall sale is where it's at, even though I already own half the games on sale. I already own it but anyone who doesn't Bomberman Ultra is on for $5 which is a steal and a half.

I'm surprised this article didn't mention the 50 percent off sale they're having on certain PSN Exclusives until Decemeber 3rd. I just purchased the title 'SMASH CARS' today for a mere $7.49, which I'd highly recommend to anyone who's a fan of the classic 'ReVolt'.
