North American PlayStation Store Releases for August 7, 2012

The PlayStation Store update is live now.

Sound Shapes…that’s all that needs to be said this week. Pre-orders went live during last week’s PS Store update, and now its finally here. Just as Dyad was a long time coming, Sound Shapes is the cross-platform indie music melding platformer we’ve all been waiting for. Watch out Call of Duty, Sound Shapes is here!

Still no sign of Grand Theft Auto III from PS2 Classics this week. No new PS One classics to speak of and PSP almost gets completely ignored if it weren’t for Farm Frenzy 3 for PS3/PSP minis. Did I mention Sound Shapes is out now? And still discounted for PS Plus subscribers.

PS Plus subscribers will probably argue this as one of the best free game download days ever. The Walking Dead Episode One and Two are FREE today! For everyone else, a slew of recently old titles make their digital download debut today. Check out the complete PS Store update below and, as usual, let us know what you’ll be buying this week.
