PlayStation Store Update – January 15th

Posted on January 15, 2013 AT 03:08pm

According to the rotation of the Earth, the positioning of the sun, and the tome of time control man calls a calendar, it’s once again Tuesday—and that means new stuff on the PlayStation Store!

Today’s updates brings us some very exciting new games, a few exciting old games, the most exciting clock app your Vita will ever get, and some price drops which may—or may not—be exciting.

On the PS3 side of things, digital versions of DmC Devil May Cry ($59.99) and Angry Birds Trilogy ($39.99) will soon be up for your buying pleasure. If you’re more into the old-school, we’re also given two new—well, new as a relative term—titles: Siren ($9.99) and Disgaea: Hour of Darkness ($9.99). I knew Siren was coming, but wasn’t at all expecting Disgaea—so that’s a pretty swanky one-two punch there.

Portable-wise, of course by far the biggest release of the day for me is Corpse Party: Book of Shadows ($19.99). Playable on both the PSP and Vita, Book of Shadows comes as the follow-up to 2011′s amazing and disturbing PSP horror adventure Corpse Party. If scaring yourself too much to sleep isn’t your thing, maybe you’d enjoy a game that’s more about waking up—and that’s where Sony’s Wake-up Club (Free) comes in! The free “socially connected alarm clock application” will allow “you and up to 11 friends can challenge each other to wake up and complete short mini-games at a set time.” Yes, that really is a thing.

Then we have a few miscellaneous items, such as a four Disney Pixar PS1 games now being up in the Vita’s PlayStation Store, and two PSP Bundles: Farm Frenzy Bountiful Harvest Pack ($5.99) and Montezuma Well-Rounded Player Bundle ($3.99).

Finally—beyond of course the fact that Darksiders will be your new free game via PlayStation Plus—here are the price changes and sales for the week.
