What’s New On the PlayStation Store (4.17.12)

What’s New On the PlayStation Store (4.17.12)

Vita owners, rejoice! This week’s PlayStation Store update continues the trend of new Vita games and DLC – let’s hope the solid support continues. The biggest release of the week is arguably Disgaea 3: Absence of Detention, the Vita’s second strategy-RPG and a port of the 2008 PS3 release. Check back later this week for our full review of Disgaea 3, but if you can’t wait, rest assured that you’re making a good purchase. The outrageous humor and addictive gameplay that Disgaea is known for has benefited from the pick-up-and-play nature of the Vita, and the game is absolutely more welcoming to SRPG newcomers than Final Fantasy Tactics.

Elsewhere on the PlayStation Store, Plus members get one free game (Frogger Returns) and a handful of discounts, but the biggest attraction is exclusive access to the multiplayer beta of Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Future Soldier (Check out Juan’s PAX East coverage of Ghost Recon Future Soldier). Dead Rising 2 Off the Record and NHL 12 also hit the Store as PS3 full games, but only one is priced competitively.
