Bionic Commando: Rearmed 2, Assassin’s Creed II lead PlayStation Store update

Sony has performed their weekly update of the PlayStation Store with lots of new games and lots of discounts for PlayStation Plus subscribers.

Those new games include a downloadable edition of Assassin’s Creed II: Deluxe Edition (which features all of the DLC) and Capcom’s platforming sequel Bionic Commando: Rearmed 2. Also available this week is Atari’s puzzler The UnderGarden and Tales From Space: About A Blob, another puzzler (and just for Plus users for now).

Mega Man 2 is this week’s lone addition to the PSone Classic Imports section.

The PSP Store will receive a trio of games this week, one-on-one fighter Samurai Showdown and minis versions of Wackylands Boss and the excellent Pac-Man Championship Edition.

More information on all of these games can be found after the break with a full rundown of this week’s downloadables at the PlayStation.Blog.
