    Sony PlayStation Store PS3 and PSN Updates for May 8, 2012

    Sony PlayStation Store Director Grace Chen is here with this weeks US PSN updates below, as follows:

    Hi Everyone - It's a good day to be a PlayStation gamer.

    Not only do we get to celebrate the release of Starhawk as well as the news that all future Starhawk map packs will be free (watch this space for when they'll be dropping), we also see a ton of great content arriving on the PlayStation Store!

    We start off today's update with the PSN exclusive Datura. Playable with PlayStation Move or your DualShock 3 controller, this adventure will get you immersed into the game's unique experimental narrative and original way of interaction. Experience the world not only visually but also exploration.

    In DATURA, the player will experience an incredibly unique scenario. As you play DATURA, you find yourself in a forest. As you explore this environment, you will be presented with different scenarios in which you have to make a choice, which will determine your end result.

    It's an unforgettable journey brought to you by at Plastic ("Linger in Shadows") and Santa Monica Studio. PlayStation Plus subscribers will also be able to pick this title up at a 20% discount ($7.99 PS Plus price).

    While we get ready for the full release of PixelJunk 4am next week, you may want to take advantage of the amazing PixelJunk Anniversary sale!

    The astoundingly unique series that has helped define PSN games is now on sale for a limited time. Get many of the classics for as low as $1, and find more discounts on last year's releases PixelJunk Shooter 2 and PixelJunk SideScroller.

    If you're in the San Francisco and over 21, you're also invited to check out the community event happening this Thursday. Click here for more details on the event.

    New PS3 Full Games are also now available including blockbusters Saints Row The Third and Need for Speed The Run. The insane open-world adventure of Saints Row The Third is available with a PlayStation Plus discount as well; grab it at $47.99 while the discount is in effect.

    There's much more arriving this week, including new Add-Ons like Lost Episode 1 for Asura's Wrath and the Colossal Mayhem Pack in Prototype 2!

    Make sure you check out all the details below and let us know your thoughts in the comments below and come back next week to see what's new in the PlayStation Store, or join the discussion on the PlayStation Community forums in the Official PlayStation Store Update thread.
