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.

Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time is finally here. Sanzaru Games has made a fine product from the loins of their predecessor and the PS3/Vita Cross Buy game is a thing of platforming beauty. But I bet you didn’t know that in tow would be Bentley’s Hackpack, a collection of the finest (3) minigames from Sly 4. Bentley’s hacking minigames have been expanded upon to include even more missions, additional challenges, and trophies. And, its Cross Buy PS3/Vita entitled as well.

Take your battle to Middle Earth in this week’s free game for PS Plus subscribers, Guardians of Middle Earth. Today is the beginning of a whole slew of sweet 50% off deals. Bounce with us and download Knytt Underground without hesitation, it’s a ton of fun. Vita gamers will notice quite a few markdowns in the full Vita game category including discounts for Ridge Racer, Silent Hill: Book of Memories, and Touch My Katamari.

Dead Space 3 scares it’s way to a Day 1 Digital release in this week’s PlayStation Store update. Take a look:
