US PlayStation Store Update for May 22nd: Sorcery, Journey demo, thatgamecompany sale

Written by: / / No Comments

This week’s PlayStation Store update is chockablock with exciting new content and price promotions, from a massive ModNation Racers and thatgamecompany sale to the introduction of a number of classic SEGA titles such as Super Hang-On and The Revenge Of Shinobi.

PS Store Update 22/05/12

The long-awaited PlayStation Move title Sorcery is now available from the Store for $39.99. I’ve been putting the game through its paces over the past few days and can honestly say that it’s a must-play title for anyone with even a remote interest in the Move.

Journey has been out for a couple of months now but a demo for the game has only just landed on the Store. Seeing as though Journey only takes an hour or two to complete, this sample should provide you with a healthy slice of the full game.
