Walking Dead: Survival Instinct, DOA5 Plus, Dollar Dash, more added to PS Store


Welcome to yet another weekly update of the PlayStation Store. This week, it’s all about the fight.

Activision has added The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct, their first-person shooter based on the AMC show (which was based on the comic), to the PlayStation Store. Also available this week is Dollar Dash, a Bomberman-like multiplayer game that substitutes bags of cash for bombs. And then throws in a few bombs just to be on the safe side.

In classic gaming releases, this week sees the release of the next installment in the Capcom Arcade Cabinet, Capcom Arcade Cabinet: 1986 Pack, as well as the PSone Classic Hogs of War.

Over on the portable side of things, Dead or Alive 5 Plus and Atelier Totori: The Adventurer of Arland Plus have both been added to the Vita store. And on the PSP store, Carnage Heart EXA is now available (that’s right, there’s a new PSP game today!).

More details on this week’s new releases can be found after the break and a full rundown of this week’s new game add-ons is available at the PlayStation Blog. (more…)

Today’s Xbox Live Arcade update includes two new games…

First up is the Bomberman-like bank-robbing game Dollar Dash. If you’ve ever wanted to own one of those sacks with a big dollar sign on it, Dollar Dash is available to download for 800 Microsoft Points ($10):

Find it, rob it, and keep it. Grab the cash in this fast and frenetic top down multiplayer versus game. Dollar Dash will have you shouting for joy, as you make a dash with the cash. You must attack, defend or outrun your competitors in any of the three game modes (Dollar Dash, Save the Safe or Hit’n’Run) using unique and comedic tactics. Stand out from the crowd by customising your character, upgrading your favourite weapon, earning perks and unlocking achievements. You can’t stand still for a second as combat is crazy and money changes hands frequently. Choose your weapons carefully as you challenge your friends to become the best thief in town and laugh out loud as you smash them with a huge Bolder, peck them with a Mag Pie, while protecting yourself in Jelly!

Also available this week is the second installment in the Capcom Arcade Cabinet series, which includes Ghosts ‘n Goblins, Gun Smoke, and Section Z . The “1985-I Pack” is also available to download for 800 Microsoft Points ($10).
