PlayStation Store Update for 4/24/12 – 4/30/12

It’s time to check out all the fresh content now available on the PlayStation Store. It’s a bit slow for PlayStation Plus members this week. If you’re a PS Plus subscriber you get to try Battlefield 3. The trial is for the full game. Your other big offer is Hot Shots Golf: Out of Bounds Complete Collection for 20% off. The game is lots of fun and even better when you get it at a discount. Your other choices are some Add-ons for a few Sonic games.

One big offering plenty of gamers will enjoy is Bejeweled 3. This awesome puzzle game is now on the PlayStation Store for $14.99. This puzzle game is one of the most popular ones out there and is plenty of fun. There is also, The Walking Dead – Episode 1: A New Day. The episodic game arrives today on Sony’s digital Store. You’ll assume the role of Lee Everett; he’s a criminal who’s been granted a second chance. The video game is based on the comic book series, The Walking Dead; there is also a TV show that was adapted from the coming books. So it’s a pretty popular brand and I’m sure there are lots of fans out there that will enjoy this game. There will be a total of five episodes, each will cost $4.99. If you want to avoid paying for each and save $4.99 you can get The Walking Dead – Season Pass for $19.99.

Another thing you should download is the Dragon’s Dogma demo. When you play it you’ll be able to customize your character and embark on two quests. The character you create in the demo can even be imported to the full game when it’s released. And just a heads up to all PlayStation Vita owners, you are now able to download Skype for your PS Vita.

Plenty of awesome content out this week, check out the list below for more releases, Add-ons, deals, and offerings. I’m sure you’ll find something to get.
