Last year, Killzone 3 exploded on the scene with an unforgettable single player campaign and a fantastic multiplayer mode. Now, that same great multiplayer mode is available as a stand alone download! Take arms and dive into visceral firefights online with PSN players from around the world. Check out the unique objective based missions in which you and your squad compete against another online squad for control of blisteringly detailed environments. It’s an epic multiplayer experience with no charge to play online on PSN. The Killzone 3 Multiplayer Mode is free to play up to level 20. If you want more, purchase the full mode from the PlayStation Store. PlayStation Plus subscribers, however, can get the full mode 50% off for 1 month starting today.
To round off the PSN Games, don’t forget to check out new PS3 Full Games this week include Deus Ex: Human Revolution and Medieval Moves: Deadmund’s Quest. As noted earlier this week, Primal is debuting in the PS2 Classics collection. Read up on this PS2 favorite which is now available to download.
It’s the last week of February and that means it’s your last chance to download some of the best free and discounted content in PlayStation Plus! In addition to the aforementioned 50% discount on the Killzone 3 Multiplayer Mode, February also sports great free content like The Simpsons Arcade Game and Final Fantasy V. Additional free content hit Plus in February with games like Battle Fantasia, Inferno Pool and Fatal Inertia.

And so, we reach a new Wednesday which only means some more updates to the PS Store. Have you guys been keeping busy with your new Vita, or has your PS3 seen a little bit of lovin’, too? So long as some gaming is being done, that is what I want to hear.
This week you’ll notice some changes in the list of updates. Instead of the previous list that we used to run with we’re now listing the information in a table format, which I hope is clearer to our readers. You’ll also notice Australian pricing has now been added as some of you had requested this a few times. There may be some occasional changes to the layout so we can get things just right, but hopefully this will be what you’ll be seeing from now on.
So, down to the nitty gritty!
Choplifter HD, Bioshock 2 and the Jak and Daxter Trilogy all make their way to the store this week. Choplifter HD has been asked about a fair bit so I’m glad this is now out. I also know some of you had to wait an extra week to get your paws on Jak and Daxter and that too is also now available to purchase off the PS Store.
Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Generations gets a demo today. Continuing the awesomeness of the Ultimate Ninja Storm series, Generations now makes it possible to play as the various characters of the series pre and post time-skip. Can’t wait to try out little Kakashi and younger Yondaime, myself!
After what probably seems like forever, Resident Evil 2 and 3 now rear their beautiful zombie heads. PS Plus members also receive this for one week at no additional cost. Sadly, we aren’t able to bring Resident Evil 2 out to our German gamers. As such, we’ve gone with Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo HD Remix that we all hope makes it up somehow.
To end with, there’s more DLC this week, particularly Final Fantasy XIII-2′s new episode for Sazh and Lost Archive for Assassin’s Creed Revelations.
Hope you all have another week of fun, gaming or not. Return next week for another round of updates to the PS Store.
