    All of the games

    There's only one word for this week's North American PlayStation Store update: massive.

    Pull shapes

    It's not the most impressive week on the North American PlayStation Store when the broken Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5 is the biggest highlight, but then we suppose specific audiences would shout that NBA 2K16 or Persona 4 Dancing All Night deserve the recognition. Whatever your poison, make sure you let us know in the comments section...

    Spruced up

    Don't quote us on this, but one of the things that Sony touted about the new PlayStation Store when it rolled out on the PlayStation 3 was its ability to adapt the design without needing to deploy firmware updates.
