What’s New on the PlayStation Store (5.29.12)

What’s New on the PlayStation Store (5.29.12)

Each Tuesday, Sony updates the PlayStation Store with new digital content for your gaming pleasure. This week’s update closes out the month of May, and there’s several new games for both PS3 and Vita. That includes two new Blu-Ray titles, but one of them is a bit more expensive than expected. Let’s take a look:

PlayStation Plus

After a delay and unfavorable reactions, Rayman Origins makes its way to the Store this week. However, it comes at a higher price than the $15 fee that Plus members were expecting. All the same, $23.99 is a good price for what some consider to be the best game of 2011, and certainly the best platformer in recent years. Plus members also get additional discounts on the PS3 Ultimate Edition Bundles, a new selection that groups together acclaimed games and all DLC into one low price. Check out the deals below.

Discounts
  • Rayman Origins ($23.99)
