You’ve been waiting for it, and the time is now, the Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception multiplayer beta is now available on the PlayStation Store. To receive access to the beta, you have to be a proud owner of InFamous 2 or a PlayStation Plus subscriber. Otherwise, you’re out of luck.
In non-beta news, this week will also see the addition of a quartet of new games to the PlayStation Store:
- Beyond Good & Evil HD, a re-release of the PS2/Xbox/Cube classic.
- Gatling Gears, a twin-stick shooter from EA.
- Puzzle Dimension, a puzzle game that is “easy to learn hard to master.”
- Streets of Rage 2, a re-release of the Genesis classic.
More information about all of these games is available after the break and the full rundown of this week’s PlayStation Store update can be found at the PlayStation.Blog.
