God of War Origins, From Dust, Renegade Ops, more added to PS Store

Prepare yourself PS3 owners, Sony has graced the PlayStation Store with another massive update that is sure to include something for everyone.

Leading the way this week is a downloadable version of God of War: Origins Collection. The HD remake of Kratos’s PSP adventures is also available in retail stores today.

Today’s PSN Play entry is Renegade Ops, a vehicular combat game from Sega where the vehicle combat doesn’t involve a tournament for psychopaths. I know, right? Instead, players get behind the wheel of “an elite mobile commando unit sent behind enemy lines to defeat Inferno, a madman intent on global domination!”

Also available this week is Eric Chahi’s god game, From Dust; budget racer Ferrari: The Race Experience; a downloadable version of Epic’s Bulletstorm; Cyberbots: Fullmetal Madness, a Capcom fighter that never before made it to America; and PSone Classic Pong: The Next Level.

More information on all of this week’s new releases and game add-ons can be found at the PlayStation.Blog.
