Today’s update is for the patient gamers out there. Its a light update, but if you’ve got a PlayStation Plus subscription, then you can get to downloading some Darksiders. Vita owners to add StarDrone Extreme to their memory cards for half price and score the PSN version of StarDrone absolutely free.

An oddity occurred today when an unannounced title released on the PlayStation only to be removed within an hour.
