PSN Store Update: 25/04/12

Skyping zombies.

Hey, do you want to Skype me so we can talk about this store update? No? Well, okay then, here’s your usual boring old introduction and list.


The Walking Dead can be purchased as a full season.
The more perceptive among you will probably have noticed that my brief mentioning of Skype has to do with the fact that it will arrive with today’s Store update for the PS Vita. Soon you’ll be able to video chat with each other via that dodgy Vita camera. The Bluetooth capabilities of the Vita mean that your PlayStation 3 headsets should work on it though (I’ve tested a few myself) so Skype is a very welcome addition.

Also on the Store today, the first episode of Telltale Games’ The Walking Dead. This zombie adventure is looking very good so should be worth your time.

We’re also getting a demo for MUD FIM World Motocross on the PS3. You can hear what Dan thought of that in his preview here. Although this is not listed in the full list below, it was promised in a post this morning on the EU PS Blog. Whether or not it actually makes an appearance is anyone’s guess.

Here’s the full list:

    Not really anything for me this week – The only thing I might even be interested in (Bejeweled) is way too pricey for my liking.

      Agreed, bit of a rip off really, should be more like £6.99 give or take a quid. It’s cheaper on the US store after currency conversion, but still overpriced…if you have a US account!
      Zuma also interested me, but apparently it’s just a re-release of the Zuma game that’s been on the store for years that I already have….bloody hell, talk about regurgitation, it’s been right around the block on special offers, PS+ discounts and anywhere else that it could slot in…jeez!

    Hadn’t heard of the walking dead game until today. Will give the trial a go, and if I like what I see probably go for the season pass. Will try the dragon’s dogma demo too, and maybe a sonic avatar too!

    It is not possible to use PS3 bluetooth headset with Skype on Android devices. Skype support claims, they do not support bluetooth headsets at all. The newer ones with stereo audio would work, but only for audio output, not the mic :(
    Such a shame..
    So, I guess, the headset will not work with Skype on PS Vita either.

      I think it’s probably the “new” one. Zuma’s revenge of the world blitz showdown or whatever…

        A reply on the playstation blog says its a re-release which I’m really disappointed about as Zuma is an excellent game but I’ve already got it like the poster above. I was going to ask a question on the pop cap forums but it requires you to log into a Facebook app which wants some pretty dodgy permissions like the right to post on your behalf. Zuma’s revenge is out soon on xbox live account to Mvc but no mention of PSN on there web page.

    seriously, who designs the store layout?

    white text on a white background?

    it’s giving me a freaking headache trying to read it.

    still, the orange background they had a few weeks back suddenly doesn’t seem so bad in comparison.

      Well, judging by the games, just when you think they are finally dead & buried, they’ll just come back for some more. :)
