Store Update: 31st July 2012 (North America)

Posted by Sammy Barker

Entirely expendable

There’s not a lot to shout about in this week’s North American PlayStation Store update. Ubisoft’s The Expendables 2 tie-in is the biggest new addition, launching Sony’s latest PSN Play initiative. Other arrivals include popular PS2 title War of the Monsters and Growlanser: Wayfarer of Time on PSP.

An “unforeseen complication” means that the previously announced digital version of Grand Theft Auto III has been delayed. A new release date has yet to be set, but Sony promises more details will be announced soon.

Let’s get down to business.
