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.

Nice to see Dino Crisis up, I will be downloading that soon. What about Vagrant Story though? They should also put up Syphon Filter 2 and Gex 3D to finish those series up on PSN.

and to think I was excited to see that they just added RE2 last update. Between my PS3, 360 and Wii, I'm getting a chance to play all the classics again (legally) and without the hassle of hooking up more and more junk to my TV. :) This is an incredible generation to be a gamer. Truly amazing time IMHO. :)

Soooo over Tekken and it's easily done infinite juggle/throw combos. I stopped playing that game, more or less, directly because of the character King and what a cheap sunva gun he was. I'll stick to my Street Fighter 4 and occasionally Soul Calibur

Pretty nice update but I don't really have $40 to throw down on Tekken 6. I haven't been a huge fan of the series anyways but I assume it will be a good game. Now, what I'm really wondering is.... what games are gonna be on the black friday sale this week?

@ciatheninja itll probably be out next week if this week and last are in indication. last week they released re2 over psn (FINALLY), and this week dino crisis, so if they follow suit next week re3 will be released. also, re3 has been available over psn for some time now, if im not mistaken its been there for over a year now.

@ taylormadederek They have RE3 on the Japanese PSN store. Why Capcom USA is not putting it on the US store, I have no idea. Unless they're planning something with it. Probably will release closer to the new RE5 ep to hype it up with the Jill connection.

I Don't really like this list to be honest. I remember playing Dino Crisis awhile back, it was a decent game but I'm not going to get it. What I really want is Resident Evil 3. Just played RE2 for the first time last night, it is an amazing game once you get the hang of it. Hopefully, next time they will have RE3. Also, not that it truly matters to me, since I already own all of them, but they should start adding more Final Fantasy games so other people can enjoy them. And some other games to consider are MGS: VR Missions, Chrono Cross, Tony Hawk Pro Skater 1, 2 & 3, Vagrant Story and Xenogears.

@ Pajamasammi They actually already have Spyro...I got it about a year ago. \ \ Dino Crisis is downloaded and installed. You see Sony you release good games or at least games that are popular with nastalgia then they get bought. Now some Chrono Cross, RE3, FF8, Wild 9 (that one might already be there), Blasto...(oh please, it was so bad it was good).

Dino Crisis is a sweet deal, but if they're putting in random games like Backstreet Billiards, I could really go for them instead getting "random" games like Soul Reaver, Chrono Cross, Xenogears, or maybe even some Bust a Groove. I know its probably a licensing/milking thing, but I can dream right? Can't complain too much I guess, as they DID give us Blood Omen, a great surprise that I thought would never happen.

Why in the world would they put up reel fishing. Put something interesting like twisted metal, or even Spyro.

Of all the classic PSone games they have to choose from, they give us trash like fishing and billiards? Sigh... At least LBP will be available.
