In the world of Datura for PSN, you can expect the unexpected. This curious forest will have you on the edge of your seat as you explore your surroundings and try to figure out why and how you've ended up there.
Also on PSN, Need for Speed: The Run and Saint's Row: The Third arrive as full PS3 digital downloads. Enjoy this week's The Drop.
Starhawk - In the far reaches of space, factions of humanity battle over a rare and dangerous resource known as Rift Energy. Colonies of humans called Rifters have been exploring the "Frontier" of planets, but find their way of life threatened by the Outcast, a ruthless species of humans who have mutated into psychotic monsters due to exposure to this very same Rift Energy.
Caught in the middle is Emmett Graves, a hired gunslinger ostracized from society because of his own exposure to Rift Energy, leaving him partially mutated, but still able to retain his humanity. Graves is drawn back to his home settlement to face a mysterious outlaw and his war band of Outcast warriors.
Starhawk provides fast paced third-person shooter action set in this lawless frontier of space, allowing players to instantly alter the battlefield by calling down offensive and defensive structures in real-time from an orbiting drop ship, all while blasting away at enemies in the middle of huge single-player or multi-player firefights.
Datura (PlayStation Move/3D Support) - Datura is an experimental interactive project from Plastic, creators of Linger in Shadows. Discover an eerie, intriguing realm in this unique, interactive art experience where little is ever as it seems and mystery and surprise await your every move.
Interact with your surroundings and attempt to answer three questions: why are you here? What are you supposed to do now? And is there a way out? Solve puzzles and discover hidden mysteries that will take you beyond the world as you know it.
Need for Speed: The Run (Full PS3 Game) - Adrenaline junkies and speed fiends will find themselves on the wrong side of the law when they race for their lives in Need for Speed: The Run.
This game takes players on a heart-pounding cross-country race from San Francisco to New York. Players are lured into an underground world of illicit, high-stakes racing.
The heat is on -- and it isn't just the fuzz who are after you. Entering the race is just the beginning as you blow across borders, weave through dense urban traffic, rocket down icy mountain passes and navigate narrow canyons at breakneck speeds.
Saints Row: The Third (Full PS3 Game) - Years after taking Stilwater for their own, the Third Street Saints have evolved from street gang to household brand name, with Saints sneakers, Saints energy drinks and Johnny Gat bobble head dolls all available at a store near you.
The Saints are kings of Stilwater, but their celebrity status has not gone unnoticed. The Syndicate, a legendary criminal fraternity with pawns in play all over the globe, has turned its eye on the Saints and demands tribute.
