After a week of PlayStation Plus exclusivity, thatgamecompany’s Journey is now available to download from the PlayStation Store for all PS3 owners. And if our review is any indication, you should buy it right now. Leave work if you have to.
Also available this week are a pair of PSN shooters: EA’s warp (which was part of last month’s XBLA House Party) and Ubisoft’s Shoot Many Robots. I guess the question is, do you want to shoot humans who’ve cruelly kidnapped an alien or do you want to shoot alien invaders as the last hope for humanity?
If you’re interested in some gaming on the go, the Vita Store has added a pair of new games: Reality Fighters, an augmented reality fighting game (co-starring Mr. Miyagi!), and the latest entry in the Ridge Racer racing franchise. Excuse me… RIDGE RACCEEERRR!!!
Hit the jump for more details on all of this week’s releases and travel over to the PlayStation Blog for a complete list of this week’s new game add-ons.
