Jurassic Park, Red Dead Redemption added to PS Store

Following Microsoft’s lead, Sony has reorganized the PlayStation Store into PS3 Games (titles that were first released as disc-based games) and PSN Games (titles exclusive to the PS Store). Best of all, on the first day of this new store setup they’ve made one of the best disc-based PS3 games ever available to download. I refer, of course, to Red Dead Redemption.

The original redemption of John Marsten, as well as his cowboy antics battling the undead hordes in Red Dead Redemption: Undead Nightmare, are now available to download for $39.99 and $19.99, respectively.

meanwhile, the new “PSN Games” storefront will receive three new games on its first day of existence:

Jurassic Park: The Game ($29.99)
Security systems have failed and the creatures of the park roam free. Now, a rogue corporation will stop at nothing to acquire the embryos stolen and lost by Dennis Nedry. Experience a brand new adventure and see new areas and dinosaurs in this landmark game set during the first Jurassic Park movie.

Hollywood Squares ($9.99)
Play with friends and family on the famous tic-tac-toe game board occupied by “center squares” Kathy Griffin, Brad Garrett, Martin Mull and Jeffrey Tambor! Host Tom Bergeron asks the celebrities questions, and you judge whether the answers are true or false.

BurgerTime World Tour ($9.99)
BurgerTime lives again! This culinary classic used to rip quarters from your pockets. Now it’s back but in Next-Gen form with 3D graphics on a rotating cylindrical axis in a whole new burger world. In fact, 4 new worlds! And 50 levels, four gargantuan boss characters, and up to 4-players, online!

Finally, a new PSone Classic, Vanguard Bandits, will be added to the PS Store. The availability of this JRPG has surely broken the hearts of eBay sellers everywhere as it’s been selling on the auction site for $100-$200.

To get the full flavor of this week’s PlayStation Store update, including more details on these games and all of the new add-ons, head on over to the PlayStation.Blog.

Get Jurassic Park: The Game for free if you sign up for PS Plus between 11/1 and 11/8

Sony has spared no expense when it comes to the free games available to PlayStation Plus subscribers, but the latest deal is bigger than a hungry T. Rex.

That’s right, anyone who signs up for a 12-month PlayStation Plus membership between November 1 and November 8 will receive a free download of Jurassic Park: The Game. The best part is that Telltale’s retelling of the events of the first movie (from the perspective of an InGen team searching for the dead Dennis Nedry) will be yours to keep even if you let your PS Plus subscription lapse.

So if this deal sounds too good to be true, hold on to your butts and sign up for PlayStation Plus today. You’ll also be in line to receive November’s free game, Hydrophobia Prophecy.

The dinos get bitey in new Jurassic Park trailer

The dinosaurs featured in the latest Jurassic Park trailer are hungry. Like, really hungry. Thankfully, nobody pulled a Gennaro and stopped to take a leak.

Are you prepared to run for your life from a raptor or stand still as a T. Rex breathes down your neck? We’ll all get to find out together when Telltale releases Jurassic Park for the Mac, PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 on November 15.

Clever girl… Jurassic Park sneaks into stores on November 15

Did that headline conjur images of a pack of Raptors silently circling Muldoon in the aisles of your local game store? I hope it did.

Anyway, Telltale Games has told the tale of Jurassic Park‘s release date to IGN. The game will be released on November 15 as a retail game disc for the Xbox 360 and as downloadable episodes on the PC and PS3. The entire game will be on the Xbox 360 disc and all episodes will be able to be downloaded at once on the PC and PS3. That means it’s not really an “episodic” game, but whatever.

An iPad version is also in the works, but Telltale was not ready to discuss a release date for it just yet.

Jurassic Park launching on PC, PS3, Xbox 360 in Fall

PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 owners, prepare to say “Welcome to Jurassic Park!” this Fall when Telltale’s episodic game launches on the consoles as well as on the PC.

The game, which takes place concurrently with the events of the first movie, will be released simultaneously across all three platforms. PC and PS3 players will be able to obtain the game episodically through download services through services like Steam and the PSN while it’ll be available on the Xbox 360 as a disc-based game. Although, how that translates into a “simultaneous” release may require some magic on Telltale’s part.

I’m sure it’ll involve somebody holding onto their butts.

Jurassic Park delayed on PC/Mac, multiplatform launch coming Fall 2011

Last month we posted an in-depth dev diary and confirmed that Jurassic Park: The Game would have an April release date for the Mac and PC, with console versions coming later in the Fall. Telltale is scrapping that schedule, instead opting for a simultaneous multiplatform release later this year. This doesn’t seem to be an arbitrary decision, with the company genuinely wanting to make the best game possible:

We see a ton of potential in the game’s exciting mechanics and style and feel we can take what we already have in place to an even more thrilling level, so we’ve decided to continue work on the game and launch the PC/Mac version of Jurassic Park: The Game to coincide with the our multiplatform release in fall 2011.

As an apology to those who pre-ordered the first full season on Mac or PC, Telltale will refund your money and send you a voucher for a copy of any Telltale game you wish, regardless of whether you want to wait and use it for Jurassic Park later in the year.

Jurassic Park: The Game is coming to PC, Mac, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3.

The dinosaurs return in new Jurassic Park dev diary with Telltale Games

I haven’t kept too close an eye on the upcoming Jurassic Park: The Game, but hearing that signature music come on in this trailer actually gets me pretty excited for it. It seems you couldn’t have picked a better studio than Telltale, as the team describes collaborating with paleontologists, details the impact the reptiles have in gameplay, and overall just reminisces about that first time seeing Jurassic Park. The episodes will begin rolling out in April for Mac and PC, with console versions due out in September later this year.
