More PlayStation games for less

Enjoy sensational savings on PlayStation 3, PlayStation Vita and PSP as the PlayStation Store Summer sale continues. With full games such as L.A. Noire Complete Edition on PS3 and add-ons such as Escape Plan: The Asylum on PS Vita available at a great discount, there’s no better time to fill those holes in your video game collection.

Go for gold

The official PlayStation quiz, Level Up, gets all sporty this month with some questions that are sure to get your heart rate going – and your brain racing. Think you’re up to the task of achieving a perfect ten score? Time to prove it…

Fancy a splash?

Dive into one of the most unique games of 2012 – Puddle on PS Vita is a refreshingly different puzzle title. Use friction, momentum and motion to guide your puddles past dangerous hazards such as fires, rifts and potential spills. Download Puddle from PlayStation Store now.

New to download

PlayStation Store isn’t just home to irresistible discounts – there is also a wonderful variety of new games and add-ons to enjoy too, on PS3. Fancy downloading the action strategy puzzler Rock of Ages? What about team shooter Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City, which blasts its way on to your screens accompanied by a bundle of downloadable campaigns and bonuses to give you the best possible chance of survival.

If giant robots are more your style, then you can download the TRANSFORMERS: Fall of Cybertron demo to get a taste of the apocalyptic war between the Autobots and Decepticons. For a more hand-to-hand combat thrill, you can grab all 12 unlockable characters from beat ‘em up extravaganza Street Fighter X TEKKEN to give yourself a fighting chance against your friends online.

If you want to wind down after a long day enjoying the summer of sport, chill to new Rexbox avatars from The Studio and download some regal outfits for Sackboy in LittleBigPlanet 2 with the Disney Princesses Costume Pack 1.

A pirate’s life for you?

Risen 2: Dark Waters sets sail on PS3 this week, which means you can swim in the murky waters of this exciting role-playing game. Monsters, ancient gods and voodoo magic are just a few of the things you’ll encounter on the stormy seas… grab a copy from the shops and earn your sea legs.
