Store Update: 17th December 2013 (North America)

Posted by Sammy Barker

Season of digital goods

Christmas has come early on the North American PlayStation Store this week. Indeed, there are so many highlights that we don’t really know where to start. We suppose that the release of Minecraft: PlayStation 3 Edition takes top billing, but the first episode of The Walking Dead: Season 2 and the PlayStation 4 port of The Pinball Arcade are also worth mentioning. And then there’s... Oh, let’s just get to the list, shall we?

PS4 Games

flOw ($5.99, Cross-Buy)
Experience the award-winning flOw, now available on PS4, PS3, and PS Vita systems. flOw is a game about piloting an aquatic organism through a surreal biosphere where players consume other organisms, evolve, and dive into the abyss.

Do you think there's ANY chance minecraft could be cross buy or have an upgrade fee? It seems far fetched, but when asked about it, he said we don't know yet, more on that later. Wouldn't the practical sense move be to say no now if you don't see it happening? Or we have no plans for cross buy at this time (like the wii u).

The possibilities tempt me...

@ztpayne7 I think there's definitely a chance of it. Without any confirmation, though, it's probably best to go in expecting the worst.

This week has blown my mind... Minecraft (FINALLY!) on PS3, Terraria on PS Vita, The Walking Dead season 2, and now a whole new LittleBigPlanet 2 DLC? These all needed to be spaced out more!

Even though I already beat it on the Wii U, I couldn't resist buying Runner 2 on Vita as it is such a fun game!

Played some of Runner 2 when it was free on PS3 through Plus and loved it. Perfect game for Vita so I bought that and the Good Friends Character Pack.

Played the Minecraft demo twice. First was all tutorial then time ran out. Boring. Played again and got killed while opening an underground chest and lost all my stuff. Frustrating. I can see how this could be addicting, but only in a bad way. Defintely not something I can see being good in small doses. I think I could only play this in 3 or 5 hour intervals, but 1 or 2 is all I ever have.
