is here with the new PlayStation 3 and PSN releases for the upcoming week today, as follows:
Prepare to unravel supernatural mysteries, or relive two award-winning experiences of 2012. All this and more join the PlayStation lineup this week. Please charge your DualShocks in preparation.
Jodie Holmes has not lived her life alone. Since childhood, she has been followed by an unseen entity of incredible power. It's bound to her, and the mystery of this connection only deepens throughout her years. Experience Jodie's story on Tuesday when Beyond: Two Souls launches for PS3.
This story-driven thriller comes from the same team that brought you Heavy Rain in 2010, so you can expect the same quality character drama and visual spectacle.
And if you missed out on Borderlands 2 or Dishonored - two critically-acclaimed games that launched last year - you can finally see why gamers have been raving.
Both games are getting Game of the Year Editions this week, which gives you the opportunity to catch up on your gun-crazy loot hunting, or stealth-infused steampunk, respectively.
Looking for something a little quirkier? Consider Disgaea D2: A Brighter Darkness, and plunge into the RPG insanity that can satisfy even the most hardcore strategy lovers.
For a full list of games coming this week, keep scrolling. And enjoy the Drop!
