Sony has posted this weeks store update. The updates have been great and it doesn’t appear to be slowing down.

PlayStation Network

DC Universe Online — A massively-multiplayer experience, DC Universe Online brings high-energy action to the forefront with a combat system designed to deliver a fast-paced action experience with the extraordinary powers of your personally created heroes and villains at your disposal.

Ghostbusters: Sanctum of Slime — Ghostbusters: Sanctum of Slime is a four player, ghost-busting adventure that will take players on a brand new paranormal experience. Gamers will suit up with their proton packs and assume the role of a rookie hired by the Ghostbusters to save New York City from a disaster of ghoulish proportions.

Swarm — Swarm lets the player take control of 50 utterly fearless Swarmites and drive them through an intense, entertaining and often suicidal battle for a greater good.

With a unique combination of mass character control and fast action, the resulting brutal aftermath will make players want to play Swarm over and over again.

Battle: Los Angeles — Battle: Los Angeles gives players the opportunity to relive the thrill of the movie as they fight alongside characters from the film to defend the city of Los Angeles from attacks from unknown forces in fast and frantic first-person shooter gameplay.

Dissidia 012 Final Fantasy (Also on PSN) – The dramatic, high-intensity action game that brought together an all-star cast of Final Fantasy characters is back with new enhancements. Dissidia 012 Final Fantasy adds new game modes, story missions, items, alternate costumes and combat features, expanding upon the action and excitement of Dissidia Final Fantasy in every way. This second Dissidia game offers players a unique combination of action-packed fighting game elements and RPG-based character development.

Hoard (Also on PSN) – Hoard is a fast-paced action game that promises addictive, thrilling action themed around dragons and their quest for treasure. The game gives players the chance to amass giant piles of gold by raiding medieval commerce, roasting knights with fire-breath, kidnapping princesses, scaring towns, and defeating powerful wizards.

LEGO Star Wars III: The Clone Wars – Play either as a Jedi or Separatist with all-new character abilities, such as Squad command, Lightsaber slicing, Lightsaber jumps, long distance Jedi attacks and Grapple Tie-Ups, all within a new, easy-to-navigate hub.

Naruto Shippuden: Kizuma Drive – Naruto Shippuden: Kizuna Drive pits Naruto and friends against an unseen foe responsible for the disappearance of ninja from Hidden Leaf Village. New characters will descend onto the scene and unexpected plot twists are revealed as players discover who seeks vengeance upon Naruto.

PSone Classics

Legend of Mana – The world of Fa’Diel is a formless mass. It is up to you to create the world, using artifacts that are spread throughout the world. At the beginning of the game, the player must choose a female or male character, a starting weapon, and place to start. Once in the starting area, the player will be able to complete a small quest and find more artifacts. With that done, the new artifacts can be placed on the map to create new areas that have their own unique mini-quests. There is a total of 60 quests and artifacts to discover. The best way to think of all of the stories is to consider them the songs on a record. Individually, they are great; however, when combined they make up something much larger. The world of Fa’Diel will become what you make it in Legend of Mana.

[Editor’s Note: The following dates are subject to change. Game details are gathered from Press Releases from their individual publishers and/or ESRB rating descriptions.]

The PC Version of Battle Los Angeles is quite fun and if they are one in the same I suggest you give it a whirl.

    I guess Legend of Mana isn’t the same as Secret of Mana? Doesn’t ring a bell…

    I’m going to have to try the WWE All Stars demo and the Ghostbusters demo ^^

    LEGO Star Wars III promises to be a good game.

    Legend of Mana is the 4th game in the Mana Series while Secret of Mana was the 2nd Game. It also doesn’t hurt to use wikipedia in awhile. Might get Hoard but I saw a sweet deal on steam for it priced at 7.50. Might as well grab a 4 pack for myself and friends.

    lol…

    Sometimes questions spur on conversations. But thanks, I’ll try and keep this… Wikipedia thing that you mentioned in mind.
