Grace Chen's Avatar + Posted by Grace Chen on Feb 07, 2012 // Sr. Director, PlayStation Store

Hi Everyone –

With great new PSN Games, the return of two PlayStation legends, great new PS3 Full Games and a stellar February kick-off for PlayStation Plus subscribers; there’s a lot to love with today’s update.

New PSN Games hitting this week include Gotham City Impostors. Bringing a new style of multiplayer mayhem with a tongue-in-cheek Gotham City style, you’ll want to see what the players in the Beta have been raving about. In addition, side-scrolling action comes in two flavors this week. For brutal combat action, you’ll want to check out Shank 2. For classic four-player co-op beat em ‘ups, download The Simpsons Arcade Game.

It’s also a big week for PlayStation legends Jak and Daxter. Not one, not two, but three of their original adventures are hitting the PlayStation Store today! And the best part? These classic PlayStation 2 games have been remastered in HD along with stereoscopic 3D functionality and new Trophy support! Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy, Jak II and Jak 3 are now available individually, or grab them as a bundle at a lower price.

As mentioned earlier today, brand-new DLC is hitting UNCHARTED 3: Drake’s Deception including the Fort Co-Op Adventure. This DLC will mark the first time in the series you’ll be able to play co-op as the UNCHARTED villains with Zoran Lazarević, Eddy Raja, Harry Flynn joining forces in a tale that further explores the mystery behind the Janus head statue from the on-disc co-op adventure. It, as well as additional DLC, arrives today and is available individually, or as part of Fortune Hunters’ Club.

New PS3 Full Games arriving today include the twisted puzzle tale Catherine, as well as the fun for all ages Top Spin 4 and Lego Pirates Of The Caribbean. These titles represent some of the best experiences previously only found at retail; now available to download. PlayStation Plus subscribers are also able to download a free one hour trial of Catherine and Lego Pirates Of The Caribbean as part of their subscription.

Speaking of PlayStation Plus, today kicks off February’s month of free games, discounts, and exclusives. For one, the aforementioned The Simpsons Arcade Game is now free for subscribers! Recent PS one Classic release Final Fantasy V is also free to download. First and free access to this episode’s Qore, as well as free downloads of PS minis Hungry Giraffe and Gold Medalist round out this week’s Plus updates, with more fun to come throughout the month.

Finally, we’re all excited about the premiere of The Tester Season 3! New episodes are available to watch every Tuesday right here or download them from the PlayStation Store. Tune in to find out who the winner will be as they’ll be joining the legendary Santa Monica Studios team.

That’s all for this week. Check out the full details of this week’s update below, and let us know your thoughts in the comments below or join the discussion on the PlayStation Community forums in the Official PlayStation Store Update thread.
