After the huge number of releases from last week (both at retail and on the PSN store) we HAD to know this week would scale back things and dole out just a couple of games so we can actually have enough time to play catch up with our backlog (mine goes all the way back to 2009!).
Because of that, we’re left with the following brekdown: 3 retail releases, 2 new PSN releases, 2 former retail-only releases finding their way to the PSN store, 1 PSOne Classic, 3 minis and a single “I am Alive” presentation of a PSP Digital-only release (Cooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooorpse Party!).
Want to know what will be out there for you to spend some money on so close to thanksgiving? Full list after the break.
Halfway point has been reached and thus the retail releases start to pile up along with some digital stocking stuffers of Christmas past and present (sorry, nothing from Christmas future yet. Will get back to you on that one ASAP) that want to fight it out for our end of the year gaming budget.
The new Assassin’s Creed brings us a nice bonus thanks to the huge amount of space available on Bluray discs: the original Assassin’s Creed is included, absolutely free! Dead Space 2 gave us a port of the excellent Wii entry of the franchise (Dead Space Extraction) and Bioshock Infinite will give us a free copy of the first Bioshock (which is great since I didn’t get the DLC challenge rooms last time and now I can finally get 100% of all trophies).
What did you pre-order? How much are you willing to spend this week?

PS2 is back and here to stay! Apparently the older catalog offerings are getting a lot of sales as we’re now into the THIRD set of PS2 releases made available on the PSN Store. This time around Full Spectrum Warrior and Stuntman Ignition get a chance to shine again at the very enticing $9.99 price point. Enough to convince you or is something else holding you back?
Remember, all content bought BEFORE November 18th, 2011 will still be playable in up to 5 PS3 or PSP devices (depending on if it’s a minis, PS2, PSX or PSN release) and after that date you’re down to only two activations. Guess it’s time to do some pre-holiday shopping rush!
Step right up and see how this is a wonderful week for gaming!
I KNEW it couldn’t last for long! After week after week after week packed with retail and digital content we HAD to run into a week of lower profile releases at retail as publishers are (mistakenly) waiting for the 2nd week of november to unleash every single product they have left hoping to make you part with your holiday gaming money.
What are the retail and PSN highlights of the week? Find out after the break!
This will be the last week of the Only on PSN releases AND the last week for you to try and make the cut for the “Spend $60 on the PSN Store and receive $10 in credit in november” promo. I’m only $17 short so I’ll be sure to make it to $60 once the PSN store updates on tuesday.
After all the releases from the last two weeks we all knew we’d eventually get to a point where the PSN Store could not keep up with the pace and we’d have to make due with just a couple of new games up for grabs on the digital side of the equation.
At least things are looking healthy on the retail side with three new releases and a Game of the Year Edition for the critically acclaimed Red Dead Redemption. That will give all those holdouts a LOT of content for only $49.99! 70+ hours of content AND 90+ trophies for a low, low price will surely convince you to finally dive into the game.
Full list of releases for this week after the break. What will get a chance to help you part with your hard earned cash this time around? Also, see how the term “PSOne Classic” can be twisted into any shape and size!
