Sony’s gone into full media blitz for the its new baby, the PS4. But it’s nice to see that the company hasn’t forgotten the PS3 and the Vita. Recently a couple of announcements from the Playstation Blog outlined some new downloadable titles and great deals this summer. The Playstation Store Play lineup has been announced and you’ll get cash vouchers for downloading any of the games. If you’re a Playstation Plus member, you can take an extra 20% off and help yourself to a free download of Jet Set Radio while you’re at it!
Jet Set Radio is an HD update of the Dreamcast cult classic Jet Grind Radio. You can pick it up for free if you’re a PS Plus member ($9.99 otherwise). The game pits you in a futuristic, cel shaded Tokyo “Tokyo-to” where you’ll rollerblade and tag your way to dominance over rival gangs.
Another Playstation Blog post lists the cash back deals and the full lineup of PLAY titles. It looks like a fun summer lineup!
