What’s New on the PlayStation Store (5.15.12)

What’s New on the PlayStation Store (5.15.12)

When a heavily-discounted Rayman Origins and a host of Full Game Trials were promised as May 15 goodies for PlayStation Plus subscribers, gamers were understandably excited. It’s a shame, then, that the aforementioned deal on 2011′s best platformer did not clear with Ubisoft, while the Full Game Trials on games like Batman: Arkham City have been delayed. Thankfully, there’s still plenty to enjoy on the PlayStation Store while we wait.

PlayStation Plus

  • Free – Rock Of Ages
  • 50% off – Goldeneye 007 Reloaded ($29.99)
  • 40% off – Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood Complete ($14.99)

This week is absolutely packed with new games, and the good stuff kicks off with PixelJunk 4am, the Move-controlled musical experience from first-party studio Q-Games. If you’re not a musician yourself, don’t worry – you can opt to download the free viewer (listed as the PixelJunk 4am Demo) and enjoy the auditory stylings of other DJs. Other new games include Sonic The Hedgehog 4 Episode II (demo available) and Prototype 2, which includes free DLC in the form of the Radnet Access Pack.
