US PlayStation Store Update for March 6th: Mass Effect 3, Journey early access, MotorStorm RC free on PS Vita

Written by: / / No Comments

There’s so much great new content on the PlayStation Store this week that now is the perfect time to use up a few days of leave so you can have an uninterrupted love affair with the likes of Mass Effect 3 and Journey before Monday rolls around.

It must be said that being a PlayStation Plus member makes each week’s Store Update a whole lot sweeter. PS Plus freebies this week include a new episode of Qore, Sly Cooper and the Thievius Racoonus and Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix. PS Plus members can also play Journey one week before the rest of the world – an excellent offer when you consider how much critical acclaim thatgamecompany’s latest title has already received.

PS Store Update 06/03/12

Mass Effect 3 is available in digital form for $59.99 if you’d like to play it off your hard drive. EA’s marketing campaign for ME3 has been particularly epic so I’m sure it’s going to set a new record for biggest opening by a single-player RPG.

If buying the PS Vita decimated your bank balance then you’ll be pleased to know you can pick up MotorStorm RC for free thanks to a deal between Sony and car manufacturer Scion. The offer is for a limited time and only applies to the Vita version so make sure you at least add the game to your download list before the promotion ends.

As always, there’s tons of additional content to compete for your cash this week so be sure to check out the full list below:
