PlayStation Store Update

Hi Everyone –
House of the Dead fans, another blockbuster adventure arrives with House of the Dead 4! Hot from the arcades and exclusively on PlayStation Network, it marks the first time House of the Dead 4 is available to play at home, and for only $9.99. Play as AMS Agent James Taylor or Kate Green and save the world by fighting against an old enemy and hordes of unforgiving evil creatures in this unforgettable House of the Dead adventure. HoD4 also fully supports PlayStation Move, multiplayer modes, and for a limited time, is available with a 30% discount for PlayStation Plus subscribers!


We’ve also got great new PS Vita content to check out. Fans of last year’s PSN hit StarDone will be excited to see StarDrone Extreme on PS Vita. Featuring revamped levels from the original PS3 version as well as a ton of brand-new exclusive PS Vita levels; this velocity-based puzzler promises a breakthrough experience on PS Vita for only $3.99. Don’t forget that the PlayStation 3 version of StarDrone is getting updated, featuring cross-continued gameplay with PS Vita version via Cloud Save and Cloud Load feature allowing you to exchange your current progress between the two platforms.


Continuing with the PS Vita news, strategy fans won’t want to miss Disgaea 3: Absence of Detention. For newcomers, Disgaea is a turn-based strategy RPG where players can move and arrange their characters using a grid-based system to perform special attacks, or team up to do millions of points of damage (often in very comical cutscenes) against their opponents. For Disgaea fans, you know the deal: Tons of content jammed inside, on top of the Disgaea series’ infinite replayability, and all new PS Vita characters and features make for one amazingly addictive game. Read up more on the game’s features here, and download it today on the PlayStation Store for PS Vita.

Uncharted 3 fans take note: your time has come with an all new UNCHARTED 3: Drake’s Deception™ Maps & Modes DLC Bundle featuring core content from some of the game’s outstanding maps packs and expansions. Featuring Flashback Map Pack #1, Co-Op Adventure Pack, Flashback Map Pack #2, Co-Op Shade Survival, and Drake’s Deception Map Pack; all this great content is available for $29.99. If you’re a Plus subscriber, you’ll be able to snag this bundle for a limited time discount at $20.99!

Lastly, in PlayStation Plus news, today you can get set for the multiplayer beta of Tom Clany’s Ghost Recon Future Soldier. It’s available for download today, but remember that the beta does not open until April 19th. You’ll also want to make sure you grab free PSN Game Frogger Returns, as well as take advantage of the aforementioned 30% discount on House of the Dead 4.

This call of duty background makes it impossible to see anything on the PSN Store.
This happens often, actually, but this current one is the worst.

Can the PSN guys pick the colour schemes and backgrounds more carefully, please?

Thanks!

Before I get angry again and rant on a post which got scrubbed because of a shoddy interface here goes my question:

Can anyone tell me if the PSP titles on sale are Vita Compatible.

I am aware there is a “compatibility page” but let’s be honest, it’s spotty at best. Does anyone have direct knowledge if “Alien Syndrome” or “Super Monkey Ball Adventure” are compatible with the Vita?

And in addition to this question, might I make a suggestion to include any PSP titles in micro updates to inform the community here (the point of a blog) whether such sale items are indeed compatible? Simply testing 2 games doesn’t seem that hard (and yes, I have tested before). A simple “Fully compliant”, “Partially compliant”, and “nonp-compliant” would be all many of us would need.
I’d like to know before these sales are gone. -Adam
