PlayStation Store Update

Grace Chen's Avatar + Posted by Grace Chen on Oct 11, 2011 // Sr. Director, PlayStation Store

Hi Everyone -
It’s a special day for movie lovers as the Video Unlimited – preview app is now available to everyone! Check out this new and improved way to browse, watch, and discover movies and TV shows on the network.

This week sees the release of an amazing PSN exclusive: Sideway: New York. Part of Only On PSN and featuring some of the most breath-taking artwork to hit the 2D world; Sideway: New York follows Nox, a graffiti artist in NY, who’s found himself sucked into the world where he lives alongside his own art. With a fantastic use of color and eye-popping HD visuals, you won’t want to miss this PSN exclusive. PlayStation Plus subscribers can also get this title 20% off as part of Only On PSN.

While we’re on the topic of Only On PSN, don’t forget that as part of the celebration of PSN exclusive titles hitting throughout this month, if you spend $60 or more in the PlayStation Store through the month of October, you’ll get $10 back in November. For more details, visit the Only On PSN page to check out the other upcoming titles that are coming soon to PSN.

Most Resistance 3 players may have already finished the amazing single player campaign, but are still finding a lot to love in multiplayer. The new Survival Pack DLC allows you to take back a piece of your homeland from the Chimera – or conquer new territory as a Chimeran soldier – with the Invasion multiplayer game mode, along with four new character skins and an exclusive static theme.

PlayStation Plus awesomeness continues the scheduled October content with new discounts and brand new themes as well. Classic SNK titles are getting new releases with versions on both PS3 and PSP in the form of Metal Slug 2 and The King of Fighters ’96. Subscribers can get these new releases 20% off in the Store, starting today. You’ll also notice some new Themes and Avatars, with some exclusive to PlayStation Plus. Friendly reminder, this is your last week to pick up Costume Quest free; grab it today!

That’s all for now, check out the full list below for updates, additional DLC (including some Little Big Planet 2 love) and much more. Drop your comments below, or jump into the Official PSN Store Update thread hosted by PSN Community Manager, Morgan Haro.

Why is the free + costume quest game in the last chances section? Will you offer another free game? I think I only saw one free game during the + update.

Not that I complain but if it isn’t a mistake, I thought all + free games were being offered for free during a month.
