North American PlayStation Store Update for February 12, 2013

The US PlayStation Store update is now LIVE.

The GameFans weekly update is here to share the news about more new games, demos, and add-on content than you can shake a SIXAXIS at. With platforms such as PS Plus, PSN, PS One/PS2 Classics, minis, PlayStation Mobile, and Day 1 Digital on PS3 and Vita, there is something for everyone.


PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale adds Kat from Gravity Rush and Emmett from Starhawk, both free downloads for one week only. Also available for PSASBR is the Heavenly Sword level for just $1.99 and a metric ton of new minion characters, each for $0.49 with two free within the update.

Alien Breed comes to PS Plus subscribers for $7.99 reduced from $9.99. It also is a Cross-Buy game netting purchases both the PS3 and Vita versions for one price. Same can be said for Table Pack 7: Scared Stiff and Big Shot, and so far I’m loving Scared Stiff.

Remember Twisted Metal, the David Jaffe joint featuring the now iconic PlayStation All-Star Sweet Tooth. For only $39.99 you can download the Twisted Metal Birthday Bundle featuring Twisted Metal 1 (PS One), Twisted Metal 2 (PS One), Twisted Metal Black (PS2), and Twisted Metal (PS3).
