Written by: / / No Comments

Woah! This week’s PlayStation Store update has so much gaming goodness that it’s difficult to know where to begin. From the digital version of Catherine ($39.99) to the Jak and Daxter Collection ($39.99) – there’s enough new content here to entertain you for a month, never mind a week.

PS Store Update 07/02/12

Let’s start with all the freebies PlayStation Plus subscribers can now download. The latest episode of Qore is up for your viewing pleasure and there’s also a full game trial for the aforementioned Catherine. If you enjoy Move-enabled shooters then definitely give the PS Plus exclusive The House Of The Dead III demo a try. Free games this week include blasts from the past Final Fantasy V and The Simpsons Arcade Game.

PlayStation-themed reality show The Tester 3 starts today. You can download it in HD, SD or PSP format and there’ll be a new episode hitting the Store every week. I’m really looking forward to checking out what weird and wonderful challenges await the new crop of contestants!

Some of the PSN highlights this week include action side-scroller Shank 2 ($9.99) and off-the-wall multiplayer shooter Gotham City Impostors ($14.99).
