It’s a big day for the PlayStation Store as several well-received games have found homes on new platforms and one of this Winter’s biggest releases is now available.
For all you PS3 owners who are jealous of your Xbox 360 brethren and their embrace of Minecraft-mania, the wait is finally over, Mojang and 4J Studios have gotten together and added Minecraft: PlayStation 3 Edition to the PlayStation Store. Also available today is Telltale’s continuation of their heartwrenching Walking Dead adaptation. Like the first season, The Walking Dead: Season 2 will be released in five parts. The first episode, “All That Remains,” can be downloaded now.
What else is available today? Well…
- Flow, thatgamecompany’s first game, is now available on the Vita and PS4.
- Speaking of the PS4, The Pinball Arcade has also flippered its way onto Sony’s next-generation console.
- Terraria, everyone’s other favorite sandbox game, has been released for the Vita.
- Bit.Trip Presents Runner 2: Future Legend of Rhythm Alien has also zoomed onto Sony’s handheld today.
And this is just the tip of the iceberg. Sony has added more than a dozen games to their online store today and you can read all about them after the break. As usual, a detailed listing of this week’s new game add-ons (including Borderlands 2: How Marcus Saved Mercenary Day and Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag – Freedom Cry) can be found at the PlayStation Blog.

Thatgamecompany has officially unveiled their first disc-based release, and while the title is Journey: Collector’s Edition, the Blu-ray disc will come bundled with both of the developer’s other games, Flow and Flower, previously only available as digital downloads via the PlayStation Network.
Not only that, but the disc is going to be stuffed, crammed and jammed with special bonus features, including three mini-games born out of a tradition at thatgamecompany known as the 24hr Game Jam, where games are created in the space of a day. Usually only playable in the company’s offices, players will be able to experience Gravediggers, Duke War!!, and Nostril Shot and see what 24 hours of creativity and hard graft looks like.
On top of this, there will be an array of additional bonus features including PSN avatars, soundtracks for all three games, developer diaries and making of documentaries. As if that wasn’t enough, players will also be able to experience optional live commentary during their playing experience, hearing from the talented individuals that were involved in the creative process.
“We are particularly excited about the Creator Commentary playthroughs of all three games, because we get to share with players insights about Flow, Flower, and Journey straight from the minds of the designers, artists, engineers and composers who worked together to make these games so special,” Studio Manager Sunni Pavlovic said.
Journey: Collector’s Edition looks to be an absolute steal at $29.99 when it’s released on August 28 in North America.
Are you a fan of thatgamecompany’s Flow, Flower, and Journey? Or have you never had a chance to experience the company’s work? Whatever the case may be, you’ll soon have the chance to purchase a special Collector’s Edition containing all three games:

The Play-Asia page in the tweet lists an August 2012 release date for the thatgamecompany collection, so it looks like we won’t have to wait too long to see just how special it is.
